Report Back: Justin Thompson at Loretta Lynn's

Published with Permission.
Submitted by The Thompson Family.

So after a very long and busy week of racing, Loretta Lynn’s 2014 is behind us. We had the most amazing time here in Hurricane Mills, Tennessee at the Loretta Lynn’s Dude Ranch. We learnt a lot over here and realized just how high the level of racing is over in the USA, the competition here at Loretta’s is of such a high quality. As a family we are very proud of Justin and of his achievements at Loretta’s 2014, taking part in the biggest MX Amateur Event in the world for the very first time against some riders that have raced on this track year after year, there were 1434 entries in total from Yamaha PW 50 class to Masters 50+.

Justin’s results:
- Moto 1 : 30
- Moto 2 : 28
- Moto 3 : 27
This gave him a 29 th overall against 42 competitors.

Hopefully Justin will be back in the USA next year again, chasing his dream, and to try and qualify for Loretta Lynn’s once again.

We would like to say a huge thanks to the following people:
- Billy, Sean, Michael Docherty and Jaco Smit for all their support and assistance and for welcoming us into their camp.
- Hylton Beatie and Ryan Williams from Parts Unlimited for all the support and for arranging access to the Thor Tower and for the dinner invites.
- Sebastian Tortelli and all the guys from Champ Factory, BJ and Leo for all the help and guidance
- Darrel Fitz-Gerald for training Justin and preparing him for Loretta Lynn’s
- TRP distributors - Jim and Eury for the help with Thor kit for Justin
- Racestar Graffix – Richie and David for the sticker kit to make Justin’s bike look factory
- Monster Energy SA – Nic Leite and Garan Reck for the monster cap and shirt for Justin
- MXSA – Laren, Michelle and Noleen for the MXSA T-shirts

Thanks to everybody that supported Justin whilst he was over there competing at Loretta’s, we really appreciated it.

Trevor and Debra
