4130 Motorsports Rider Ranked Second in Pro Sport and Pro-Am Classes

CRAWFORDSVILLE, Ind. – It’s been a strong start to the ATV Motocross National Championship Series (ATVMX) for 4130 Motorsports team rider Jayden Londerville. He added two additional overall podiums to his resume at Ironman Raceway over the weekend. The weather was almost a repeat of the prior round in Georgia, again swinging from the mid-80s to breezy and rainy. The AMA National Championship round in Crawfordsville, Indiana, saw the 19-year-old go 1-3 in pro sport for second overall and earn 3-3 in pro-am for third overall.

Pro Sport
With more racers than starting gates, the first pro sport moto was divided into heat races. In his heat, Londerville was top five off of the start. He set his sights on getting to the front of the pack and worked his way into second by the end of the first lap. He continued to be right on the bumper of the leader and made the pass into the lead on the second lap headed up a hill into a corner. From there, Londerville started to pull a gap on his competitors. He set the fastest lap of the race — a 01:35.851 — on lap four. As the race drew on, he really began to stretch his lead. When the checkers flew, he secured the top step of the podium aboard his Yamaha YFZ450R.

After riders from both heats and the last chance qualifier had earned their admission into the second moto, they lined up for a six-lap battle. Londerville didn’t get the start that he wanted, but made several passes to be into the top five by the end of the first lap. On the third lap, he overtook the fourth-place rider in an uphill corner. Londerville once again set the fastest lap time of the race — a 01:35.333 – just over the halfway point. He continued to reel in the pack of riders ahead of him and made a swift pass into third at the finish.

Londerville’s 1-3 moto results allowed him to capture second overall in pro sport at Ironman Raceway.

“I rode smart and put in good laps to win my heat,” said Londerville. “In the second moto, I had a pretty bad start, around tenth. By the third lap, I moved up into fourth. But, I was about ten seconds behind third, so I had a lot of work to do. I threw down some fast laps, and, by the end of the last lap, I was right on the third-place rider. I made a last-lap pass.”

A repeat of the prior round, rain poured down on Saturday night. The first hard-packed track of the season offered up slick conditions on Sunday. Fourth in qualifying, Londerville lined up for the first moto ready for battle. He powered his Yamaha YFZ450R out of the gate into a top-five position. The pack was extremely tight for the duration of the race. Londerville kept fighting and was able to press his way into fourth around the middle of the 11-lap race. With a couple of laps to go, he was able to break into a podium position. He crossed the line in third.

With riders lined up on the starting gate, track prep took place right before the second moto. Londerville took a gate near the middle and rocketed his machine into third by the first turn. However, riders were tight and he slipped to fourth soon after. A battle ensued and he was shuffled back to fifth. With a never-give-up attitude, Londerville quickly regained the position. He chased down the rider ahead and kept him close for several laps. Eventually, he once again secured a podium finish – taking third.

Londerville’s 3-3 moto finishes netted him third overall in pro-am.

“The conditions were way different than Saturday,” said Londerville. “It was very muddy and slick for qualifying, where I ended up fourth. Going into the first moto, I knew it was going to be a tough one. I worked my way up into fourth and was battling with third for most of the race. On the second-to-last lap, I made a pass that finally stuck and started catching second. But, I wasn’t able to make any moves on him before the end of the race. For the second moto, I had a great start. I made a pass into third early on. I ended up making a mistake and got passed. Then, I couldn’t make passes stick on him. Eventually, I ended up getting into third late in the race. Definitely not where I was hoping to finish up, but it was a decent points weekend.”

Looking Forward
With four rounds now complete, Londerville holds second in both pro sport and pro-am. He continues to battle his way to the top of the standings as he takes on fierce competitors each weekend.

“I’ve really been working on my fitness and nutrition,” Londerville said. “I can really tell that’s helping a lot. There are a few things that I am slowly figuring out, but we’re getting there for sure. I’ll definitely keep at it and be ready for High Point next.”

The next round will be May 18-19 in Mount Morris, Pennsylvania, at High Point Raceway.
