La Crosse, WI (8/2/2017) - Root
River Racing’s Logan Tremellen and Alex Gillette
competed in the eighth round of the 2017 AMA ATV
Motocross National Championship at Red Bud MX
in Buchanan, MI. Tremellen snagged second place
overall in 450B, and Gillette put in some great
motos for a top ten finish in 450A.
Logan Tremellen is freshly back on the track
after recovering from an injury sustained in April
during the second round of the season, but you
would never know it based on his results and riding.
Tremellen went 2-2 for second overall in the highly
competitive 450B class.

“It feels great to be back. I am riding better
then I ever did before, my holeshots are better
then ever before, and I am having more fun then
before. I think that’s the most important thing,”
Tremellen had his work cut out for him with the
sandy and challenging Red Bud track, but it was
no match for him and his Root River Racing Honda.
“The Hoosier Tires worked great, they always
have a lot of traction. The JB Racing components
are crazy important when we get into this rough
stuff. They keep the front tires where you want
them and keep the traction to the ground,” stated
Racing's Alex Gillette
Alex Gillette put in some great moto’s, proving
he has what it takes to podium or win on any given
weekend. Unfortunately, Gillette’s luck has not
been on his side for putting two good motos together
for the overall finish. On Saturday, Gillette
was on fire with a second place finish in 450
A, but Sunday’s moto Gillette struggled with bike
issues for a 17th place moto finish and ninth
place overall finish.
“I just have not been able to put a whole weekend
together for some reason. I think I put that podium
in my head and forget what I need to focus on,”
Heading into Loretta Lynn’s, the final round
of the season, Gillette plans to stay focused
and is determined to make his way onto the podium.
“I am going to go to they gym every day and just
stay up on my cardio. I plan to work hard and
continue having fun,” said Gillette.
The ninth and final round of the 2017 AMA ATV
Motocross National Championship will take place
on August 12-13 at the historic Loretta Lynn’s
Ranch in Hurricane Mills, TN. The RRR Amateur
team riders will return to battle it out one last
time for more podium finishes and overall wins.
