Finley, ND (March 21, 2019) – Fresh off his first career Sport class podium, Evan Christian was looking to match or improve upon his performance as the national snocross tour made it’s final stop of the season in Lake Geneva, Wisconsin.
Christian qualified for the main event on both days of competition, finishing seventh and thirteenth. Although it was not the weekend he was hoping for, he did manage to secure 12th place overall in the championship after a slow start in the new class.
“It was definitely a learning year,” said Christian. We started off a little slow but made some gains and have a good starting point for next year. We’ll just keep pushing on and we’ll do better next year. We’ll be looking for a championship and maybe put cans on the sled and move up again the year after that.”
Geneva was not kind to rookie Pro Lite racer Jay Lura. Jay had been making big gains during the last half of the season but was unable to qualify for his main events over the weekend.
