for wins . I knew coming into this year this was definitely one I was wanting to wrap up . To get it done a round early is pretty cool .”
After an extended time off the bike due to injury , Duvall has been riding himself back into form during the last few weeks and looked especially good on Sunday , where he won two of the enduro tests .
“ I rode much better weekend this weekend , especially today ; I felt like I kept Layne pretty honest today . Yesterday he was hammering us in the cross test ,” said DuVall . “ I feel like I ’ m getting more comfortable riding that edge that it takes to win these things . I just kind of found some lines this morning and went with them and they worked out pretty good .”
Johnny Girroir wrapped up the Pro2 title a race early with a third overall . The Coastal Racing GasGas rider swept all 12 tests in the Pro2 division and even won the final cross test outright against the Pros .
“ It feels good , a big weight lifted off my shoulders ,” said Girroir . “ I ’ m excited to be a back-to-back champ in sprint racing . I really enjoy this kind of racing . I kind of was struggling in the grass track a little bit . Kind of just fighting myself . But the last grass test , I aced it . I did it as perfect as I could . I actually ended up getting the overall win on that last grass test , so that felt really good .”
