Rider Quotes From St. Louis

Greg Schnell: When my season started I was hurt and it started out horrible actually. I have been working my butt off and finally got it put together tonight. I got a bad start but everyone was going everywhere. To win one of these you definitely have to get a good start. Chad is going so fast if I am in the back there is no way I am going to win.

Eric Sorby: I am really happy about second place. I have been riding a lot because I just got the bike. I would really like to thank Pro Circuit and Kawasaki for giving me a chance to come here. I am a little surprised (with these results) because I am not 100% used to the bike.

Chad Reed: Tonight was fairly easy. I just got a pretty good start and played it smart and just tried to get around those guys and run and hide I guess. The track was really fun I liked it. I was planning on winning a championship. That is what I came here to do. So far I really like America. It’s a lot of fun and the tracks are really cool. I really enjoy riding a 250, its where the best riders in the world are and I just want to race those guys. This championship means a lot but I really want to race with the best. I am not quite sure (on riding a 250 next week and Pontiac) I will ride one during the week and see how it goes.

Ernesto Fonseca: I was second on the start ride behind Ricky. I tried to stay as close as I could to him and then Jeremy came up on me and passed me. I didn’t really have too much to do I was just following him and waiting for him to make a mistake. I think maybe three or 4 laps after me he made a mistake and I got by him. After that I just tried to ride strong and not make any mistakes. It’s a bummer David passed me with one and a half laps to go but that’s racing. I will take third I am real happy. It was tough to pass at this track. It was a fun track I liked it a lot, it had a good rhythm. It was tough (to pass) everyone was doing the same stuff.

David Vuillemin: I felt pretty good this weekend. It seems like my shoulder is getting better and I have been working these past two weeks. I got my speed back and my confidence back after that bad period. I am kind of bummed out about my starts. It has been good the last two races because I could stay inside (the first turn) and this weekend I was like 8th or 9th so it was difficult. I am real happy with my bike and I feel confident. Racing with Ricky is always fun. I look forward to it but I need to at least start with him. Ricky Carmichael: It was a good finish. It feels good to win. I had a bad week I was sick. I just think I went too hard on my weekend off. I didn’t know what to expect going into this weekend. I wasn’t too comfortable until the main event. I think if David would have started next to me he would have been right on my tail just like he is every weekendI don’t know what happened but I know I rocketed out of that gate and it makes life a lot easier when you get a good start.

I am looking forward to going to Pontiac. I won my first 125 title there so it has always been someplace special to me. We only have 4 more races. It seems like an eternity. When you are on a roll and you have a weekend off it gives everyone a chance to creep back up on you.
