Wild moment for Weston Peick during the first Timed Qualifying session at the 2018 Atlanta Supercross. While going up the face of the standard-issue triple jump, the AutoTrader/Yoshimura/Suzuki Factory Racing rider clipped one of the Tuff Blocks and lost control of the bike. Instead of following the bike’s endo, Peick bailed off and fell from twenty-plus feet in the air to the stadium floor. Peick went to the side of the track to compose himself after the crash, but a few moments he waved off the paramedics and rode out of the stadium on his bike. During the downtime between sessions, he made the decision to ride the final qualifying session.
Clearly sore in the heel and shoulder, Peick was unable to improve his pace from the early session and is outside the top-eighteen cut for transferring directly into the night’s Triple Crown Main Events. Should he want to compete tonight, he will have to race the afternoon LCQ and finish in the top four.
