H.E.P. Motorsports hit the ground running in the team’s first foray at the 2020 Lucas Oil AMA Pro Motocross Series. Max Anstie got off to a great start to the series after a year out due to injury. The highly anticipated debut of the former Motocross Destinations (Motorcycle Olympics) & World MXGP race winner did not disappoint with his unique riding style and speed on full display throughout the first round. Supercross “Specialist” Adam Enticknap got his feet dirty in his first attempt at a full outdoor series.
After a year off due to injury, Max Anstie is back! He had a phenomenal first round at Lorretta Lynn’s Ranch this weekend. Despite crashing in both motos, Max was able to finish 11th overall- placing 11th in Moto 1 and 10th in Moto 2. Expect for Max Anstie to continue to perform with strong starts and solid results.
“It felt awesome to be back at the races,” said Max Anstie. “I have been out of action for a long time. Moving to America to race was a big change, and for our first race together it was really positive. The team has done a great job and I can’t wait for the next one.”
Adam Enticknap finished 31st overall in his first round of outdoors. The supercross specialist has been training immensely in preparation the Outdoor Nationals. Expect for his results to improve as his comfortability grows through each round.
“Good first weekend competing in the outdoor nationals for the team,” said Team Manager Dustin Pipes. “We came in with a lot of unknowns, how the team would function in a new format, how Max would finish in his first race after over a year off due to injuries, Adam’s transition to outdoors, etc. Although there were some bumps in the road, I felt round 1 was a solid base for the team. Getting Max into the top 10 in moto 2 was a good starting point after so long off. I was impressed with his resiliency after falls in both motos. We also topped the charts in qualifying a little bit which is something I hope to see more of. I would expect to see a steady incline in Max’s results as he has shown he has more in the tank. His fastest lap came on the last lap in both motos. Adam had a culture shock after enjoying the comfy confines of supercross stadiums for so long. 31st overall isn’t up to standards and he knows it. I would Expect him to ride more towards his ability for the rest of the series.”
H.E.P. Motorsports is excited to be racing and is looking forward to going back to Lorretta Lynn’s Ranch for the 2nd round of the 2020 Lucas Oil Pro Motocross Series.
