Monster Energy Pro Circuit Kawasaki’s Shimoda Close to Podium in Denver

2022-05-06 07:24
Monster Energy Pro Circuit Kawasaki’s Jo Shimoda had a solid showing at the penultimate round at Empower Field at Mile High, turning out a result of fourth and just off the podium. The ride helped push him into a tie for fourth in the overall standings heading into the season finale.
With every trip to the Mile High City comes the challenge of pushing the bike to its limits with reduced power. Shimoda adapted quickly and qualified fourth to start the day, following that up with a second in his heat race.

Shimoda’s start in the main event was solid, but he was funneled back after a few turns and came around the opening lap in seventh. He picked off riders in the opening laps and found himself in third by Lap 6. He held onto the position for most of the race, but Shimoda was pushed back to fourth on Lap 17, where he ended the day.
“I think I adjusted well to the different schedule that we had in Denver, and felt good most of the day,” said Shimoda. “My starts were okay and I rode good, but I just wasn’t able to hold on to the end. We have one more round and I’m looking forward to going back to Salt Lake City where I got my first win last year.”
