4130 Motorsports Rider Lands Overall Podium Finishes in Pro Sport and Pro-Am

LIZELLA, Ga. – Drastically different weather conditions brought unique challenges for competitors in the ATV Motocross National Championship Series (ATVMX), an AMA National Championship. Jayden Londerville, backed by 4130 Motorsports, had a strong showing at Echeconnee MX in Lizella, Georgia. He endured blistering hot and dry conditions on Saturday, going 3-1 in pro sport for second overall. On Sunday, he went 4-3 in pro-am for third overall on an incredibly wet and rutted track.

Pro Sport
With temperatures in the 80s throughout the day on Saturday, Londerville made sure to hydrate well and do his best to stay cool before his pro sport motos. In the first race, he was pushed wide after the start and had to run off of the track. He was shuffled toward the back of the 21-rider field. Like always, Londerville went to work. He made pass after pass to reach seventh by the time the second lap rolled around. Within just another lap, the 19-year-old was sitting in the top five. On the final lap, Londerville gave it his all to secure two more positions before crossing the line in third.

A better jump off of the line gave him a top-three start in the second moto. By the end of the first lap, Londerville had pushed into the runner-up spot aboard his Yamaha YFZ450R. However, he still wasn’t satisfied. Londerville set the fastest lap and overtook the leader by lap two. He held onto the lead spot until the checkers flew.

With 3-1 moto finishes, he claimed second overall in pro sport.

“I had a really bad start in the first moto and got pushed off in the second corner,” said Londerville. “I was back around 15th and knew I had to dig to get up in the top three. In my second moto, I had a really good start and took the lead really quickly. I rode smart and got a decent gap on second. I feel my speed is there. I just need to work on not making mistakes and getting better starts.”

Mother Nature unleashed thunderstorms on Saturday night. That made for cooler temperatures on Sunday, while sporadic rain showers still plagued riders. The track crew worked hard to mold the sand and red clay base into a safe and challenging course, despite the wet conditions.

Londerville took fourth in pro-am qualifying. He then took a top five start in the first moto, which gave him the ability to hunt down the frontrunners without much traffic. Londerville’s motivation was evident on the track, and he gained another position headed up a hill into a corner on the third lap. He swapped spots with a competitor a few times during the middle of the moto before eventually taking fourth at the finish.

Londerville also clinched a top-five start in moto two, picking up another position within a lap. By the fourth lap, he was in podium contention. Despite the rain pouring down and impeding his vision, he continued to click off fast laps and put pressure on the riders ahead of him. When the checkered flag waved, Londerville was third across the line.

He walked away with third overall in pro-am at Echeconnee MX after his 4-3 finishes.

“The track was really muddy during qualifying and couldn’t find my flow,” said Londerville. “I had a decent start in sixth for moto one and pushed hard to get up to fourth. I made a mistake, pushing me back, and had to fight hard to make a last-lap pass into fourth. My start was about the same in moto two. I made some quick passes up into fourth and then third. I was closing in on second but didn’t have enough time to reach him.”

Looking Forward
Rolling deeper into the season, the points are still tight between the top three in pro sport and pro-am. Londerville continues to hold second in the pro sport class standings and third pro-am points thus far this year.

“It was a decent weekend at Echeconnee,” Londerville said. “Instead of heading back to Wisconsin, I’m looking forward to putting in some hard work at a track in Florida over the next two weeks to prepare for Ironman.”

The next round will be held at Ironman Raceway in Crawfordsville, Indiana, on May 4-5.
