ROCKSTAR ENERGY HUSQVARNA RIDERS READY TO BATTLE THE IRON GIANT

Jarvis, Haaker and Roman all set for ErzbergRodeo
 
Rockstar Energy Husqvarna Factory Racing trio of Graham Jarvis, Colton Haaker and Mario Roman start the 22nd running of the ErzbergRodeo in Austria as strong favourites for top honours.
 
Securing victories at Mexico’s AvandaRocks and The Tough One in Great Britain, as well as claiming a hard-fought runner-up result at the recent Minas Riders event in Brazil, Graham Jarvis will be looking for nothing less than a winning result at Erzberg this year.
 
Sharing the podium with Alfredo Gomez, Jonny Walker and Andreas Lettenbichler in 2015, Jarvis is more eager than ever to put his Rockstar Energy Husqvarna TE 300 on the top step of the podium as he tries to secure an elusive second individual win.
 
Jarvis will be joined in Austria by his Rockstar Energy Husqvarna Factory Racing teammate Colton Haaker, who will be battling against the Iron Giant for the first time. Fresh from securing the SuperEnduro World Championship title the American has worked hard to prepare for one of the world’s toughest extreme enduro events and is fired up for his debut assault on the ErzbergRodeo.
The Rockstar Energy Husqvarna Factory Racing squad will be further strengthened by the participation of Spain’s Mario Roman. Taking the world by surprise with his runner-up result last year, the young Spaniard has spent the last few months preparing for the event in the hope of challenging for a podium result.
 
The 22nd running of the Erzbergrodeo takes place in Eisenerz, Austria this weekend, with the Red Bull Hare Scramble wrapping up three days of action on Sunday, May 29.

Graham Jarvis: “After last year’s event I think everyone is wondering what the organisers have in stall for us this year. Erzberg is always a tough race, but I know what to expect. Getting the best time I can in the prologue is my first goal. Then I’ll just try and get the best start I can and take things from there. The faster, early sections of the Hare Scramble don’t really suit me so much – I just want to be as well placed as I can for the harder sections of the race. There’s a lot of guys wanting to do well this year so the competition is high.

Colton Haaker: “It’s going to be the first time I’m racing Erzberg and I’m really looking forward to the challenge. The Red Bull Hare Scramble is probably the biggest and hardest single day event of the year and I’ve always wanted to give it a go. I’ve spent the last couple of months training hard for this event, trying myself in the gnarliest and most extreme stuff. I’ve also spent a decent amount of time getting used to my 300cc two-stroke bike, which for sure is the right tool for the event. I think the key is to learn how to find your way out of the most extreme stuff in one piece and without burning your body out. I know it’s going to be different to anything else I’ve ever done but I’m ready for it.
Mario Roman - Rockstar Energy Husqvarna Factory Racing

Mario Roman: “I’ve really been training hard for this race. Last year it was such an important race for me. I learned so much and now I know what to expect. I don’t have so much experience but I believe I can challenge for the podium. No one really knows what the race will be like, so first I want to get a good qualifying time so that I am on the first line of the start. For sure the first hills will be as crazy as always – I just want to do as well as I can before things start to get really difficult and then just keep pushing to the finish.

ROME, Ga. (May 26, 2016) – The second round of the 2016 Lucas Oil Pro Motocross Championship is set to kick off this Saturday, May 28 in San Bernardino, California for the FMF Glen Helen National. The wildly popular Southern California circuit is notorious for being known as one of the most physically demanding tracks in the world, boasting massive hills that become brutally challenging throughout the afternoon. Pirelli’s all-new MX32™PRO tire has been developed to perform under the conditions that riders will face this weekend with a loose top soil that features a hard-slippery base underneath.

Autotrader/Monster Energy/Yamaha’s Justin Barcia rode strong this past weekend at the season opening GoPro Hangtown Classic. The No.51 displayed flashes of brilliance throughout the afternoon and will be looking to work his way back onto the podium at a track he has shared success with in the past. The multi-time Pro Motocross winner will be gunning for his first win of the 2016 season when the gate drops on Saturday.

Glen Helen is the hometown race for Autotrader/Monster Energy/Yamaha rider Weston Peick, who suffered a big crash during the first moto this past weekend. Despite being unable to finish the opening moto due to damage suffered in the crash, he would bounce back to score valuable points in the second moto. After serving as a fill-in rider during the Monster Energy Supercross season, JGRMX teammate Phil Nicoletti came into the season under the radar, but demonstrated that he will be a threat throughout the season.

The BTO Sports/WPS/KTM team is looking ahead and focused on building momentum as the championship heats up. Competing in his final season as a professional racer, Andrew Short is making the most out of each stop on the schedule. The veteran is fresh off of his first race in several months and is expected to improve as he races his way back into form.

Fellow BTO Sports teammate Benny Bloss has shown he belongs near the front of the 450MX Class with a strong performance in his first-ever outdoor national with his new team. Bloss is a quick learner, an attribute that will serve him well in his rookie season as he visits tracks for the first time in his career. A former 450MX Class winner in the Pro Motocross Championship, Justin Brayton is seeking redemption after misfortune hindered his performance in Hangtown.

In the 250MX Class, Pirelli welcomes back MAD Racing/Dirt Candy Graphics/Suzuki’s Matt Bisceglia who missed the opening round in Hangtown after becoming extremely ill in the days leading up to the race. Motorcycle Superstore Suzuki’s Kyle Cunningham is also returning to action after an unfortunate practice incident left him watching from the sidelines last weekend.

The opening races from the FMF Glen Helen National kick off on Saturday, May 28, 2016 at 1 p.m. PT and can be viewed on MAV TV, while second motos can be viewed on NBC Sports beginning at 3 p.m. PT. Check local listings for channel information.

Destry Abbott’s R2RFund- Help his fight against Cancer

Encinitas, CA – This past week the Motorsports community was shocked to find out that one of their beloved racers was diagnosed with Leukemia. Destry Abbott has been a pillar in the industry for over 12 years and achieved 10 major championships and 7 ISDE gold medals. Currently he owns and operates DA8 Training where his weeks are filled with coaching Riding Schools, training athletes, and racing himself. His sole income of training is put on hold to focus on getting well.

Once this catastrophic news broke the Abbott family has had an outpouring of support from fans, friends, and family. However the current amount raised is only going to go so far. Destry’s insurance covers only a small portion of the care he needs.  He will be at a specialized cancer treatment facility for 14 days on and 10 days off for the next 5 months and all payments are cash only. Thankfully he is seeing the best doctors right away and they are attacking the cancer with the maximum effort. But he needs all the assistance we can give him. May it be well wishes, prayers, or even some funds. Nothing is too small. Dusty is a guy who is always the first to help others, it’s time the tables are turned and we help one of our own.

Road 2 Recovery has set up a funding page at https://www.r2rfund.com/da8. All the proceeds will be going directly to Destry Abbott’s Fight Against Cancer. With a current goal of raising $50,000 towards his bills and health care R2R is hoping to surpass that amount. R2Rfund.com is a dedicated funding site for Motorcross/Supercross and Action Sports athletes. In addition to the DA8 funding page, R2R is in collaboration with AP Designs to create a one of a kind helmet to be auction off in the near future. All the proceeds will be going to Destry as well.

Road 2 Recovery has been helping athletes in need for over 15 years.  They now created a positive alternative to GoFundMe that works the same way for fundraising, but also holds key information regarding what to expect and ask when you are in need.  A percentage of the same fees you pay with other fundraising sites goes towards supporting the nonprofit side of Road 2 Recovery and helps future professionals in need in action sports and motocross.  Next time you think of a fundraiser check out www.R2RFund.com.

The Road 2 Recovery Foundation is a 501 (c) 3 non-profit organization that was founded in 2000, and is dedicated to helping AMA licensed Professional Motocross/Supercross riders and Action Sports Athletes with financial assistance if career-ending injuries are sustained.  Additionally; motivational, emotional, and spiritual support is provided to these individuals and their families.  To make a donation,  click here.  For more information on Road 2 Recovery and upcoming events visit  www.road2recovery.com or contact Anita Button at 760-436-1366.

Red Bull KTM Factory Racing’s Ryan Dungey rides to impressive 2nd overall finish at Hangtown MX National

Courtesy of KTM Racing

Ryan Dungey KTM 450 SX-F Hangtown 2016Red Bull KTM Factory Racing’s Ryan Dungey captured a pair of 2nd place moto finishes on Saturday to claim 2nd overall at the opening round of the 2016 AMA Pro Motocross Championship. In his American Motocross 450 Class debut, Marvin Musquin finished 8th overall on the KTM 450 SX-F FACTORY EDITION.

With only one weekend off between the AMA Supercross finale and the opening round of American Motocross, the Red Bull KTM Factory Racing team switched gears with new bike set-up and much different track conditions outdoors.

Moto 1
In Moto 1, Ryan Dungey powered his KTM 450 SX-F FACTORY EDITION into a top three position off the start, where he quickly jumped into 2nd place behind Ken Roczen on lap two. His teammate, Marvin Musquin, got a great jump off the start to begin the race inside the top five.
With consistently fast lap times, Dungey chased Roczen down for the lead position throughout the entire 34-minute race but it wasn’t enough to close the gap that Roczen created right off the start.
Meanwhile, Musquin dropped back a few positions to ultimately finish 9th place in Moto 1.

Moto 2
In Moto 2, Dungey shot off the line to capture the holeshot but Roczen got around him to take over the early lead on lap one. From there, Dungey put forth a hard-fought effort to catch Roczen out front, where he came within a seconds of the leader at times. Despite a valiant effort, Dungey finished 2nd place in Moto 2, where he secured 2nd overall for the day.

“It was overall a really good way to begin the season,” Dungey said. “We want to win for sure but overall we’re just getting things started in outdoors, adapting to the bike and keeping the comfort from Supercross flowing into this summer. The speed was there, everything was there, and I trust the boys at KTM to keep advancing the bike and I’ll do the work on my side to get there.”

Musquin began Moto 2 outside the top ten but the 450 Class Rookie set his sights on moving through the pack. Musquin made a few passes to reach the 7th place position where set his sights on Justin Barcia in 6th. As the race wore on, Musquin was able to close the gap on Barcia but he wasn’t able to climb into another position before the checkered flag flew.

With moto scores of 9-7, Musquin secured 8th overall at the season opener.

“The first moto didn’t go as I wanted but we worked between the motos with the team and came out with good changes,” Musquin said. “I’m happy to finally race my first AMA 450 outdoor race and can’t wait to go to the next one! I know the season will be long and I want to keep improving.”

Troy Lee Designs Red Bull KTM start Motocross season with top-10 finishes

After a supercross season that had the riders spilt racing east and west coast divisions, the team was together again as the Lucas Oil Pro Motocross Championship got underway at Hangtown MX in Northern California. Back from injury and away from a gate drop since January, Jessy Nelson grabbed the Moto 2 holeshot with his KTM 250 SX-F FACTORY EDITION on his way to a 7-6 moto result for sixth overall. Teammate Mitchell Oldenburg joined Nelson in the top 10 with an 11-10 result that placed him 10th overall for the day.

Coming back after being sidelined with injury, Nelson looked as if he never missed a gate drop as he completed his first race since January in seventh. In Moto 2, he grabbed the holeshot, but the race was red flagged and the riders were sent back to the line for a full restart. But that didn’t deter him as Nelson grabbed another holeshot once Moto 2 was restarted. He led a majority of the race and ultimately came across the finish in sixth to secure sixth overall.

“I’ve been working really hard to be prepared for the competitive outdoor season and I think that I rode pretty well considering I wasn’t sure how I would stack up after being out so long,” said Nelson. “We have a good base to work off of for next weekend and I’m really looking forward to Glen Helen next weekend.”

After finishing the first moto in 11th, Oldenburg was set to put his KTM in the top 10 during Moto 2. The red flag ended up benefitting Oldenburg as he was collected in the first turn the first time around. After the restart, Oldenburg was 13th following the first lap and made his move forward to finish 10th in Moto 2 and claim 10th overall.

Alex Frye lined up for the first time at Hangtown MX and was quick to make a good impression on the rough circuit. Despite tough conditions in the opening moto, Frey claimed 10th. With a points paying finish in Moto 2 of 17th, he was able to finish 15th overall and leave Northern California with some added experience and a handful of points.

Like his teammate Nelson, Justin Hill was also coming back from injury sustained during the supercross season. His opening moto put him outside point-paying position in 21st, but he wasn’t about to go down without a fight in Moto 2. Even after starting outside the top 15, Hill quickly made his way through the pack to finish 13th and earn 16th overall.

Shane McElrath’s day started well as he battled hard in the opening moto to claim 18th. He was inside the top 10 in the second moto when he was forced to retire early with timing and scoring crediting him with 36th.

Lucas Oil Pro Motocross Championship Results: Hangtown Motocross Classic

Roczen Makes First Statement of Lucas Oil Pro Motocross Championship with Dominant Effort in Opener from HangtownSavatgy Sweeps 250 Class Motos to Secure Second Career Victory

SACRAMENTO, Calif. (May 21, 2016) - The Lucas Oil Pro Motocross Championship, presented by AMA Pro Racing, kicked off its 2016 season on Saturday afternoon with the 48th Annual GoPro Hangtown Motocross Classic at Prairie City SVRA. In the premier 450 Class, RCH Soaring Eagle/Jimmy John's/Suzuki Factory Racing's Ken Roczen made a strong opening statement in his quest for a second title, dominating both motos en route to his seventh-career win. In the 250 Class, Monster Energy/Pro Circuit/Kawasaki's Joey Savatgy swept the days motos to secure his second career victory and seize control of the early points lead.

The first 450 Class moto of the season saw Team Honda HRC's Cole Seely edge out his teammate Trey Canard for the holeshot, with defending champion and Red Bull KTM rider Ryan Dungey in third and Roczen fourth. The four riders jockeyed for position, with Roczen ultimately making several impressive passes to move into the lead on the opening lap, with Canard second, Seely third and Dungey fourth. The clear track allowed Roczen to set a torrid pace early, opening a multi-second lead over the field. Dungey battled his way into second by Lap 2 and was able to erase some of his deficit to Roczen, but was ultimately unable to get close enough to mount a challenge.

Early misfortune for Canard allowed Seely to settle comfortably in third, which he held on to for the majority of the moto, but in the late stages Monster Energy Kawasaki's Eli Tomac had fought his way from a 12th-place start to challenge Seely for third, making the pass on Lap 13. One lap later Team Yoshimura Suzuki's Blake Baggett, who followed Tomac past Seely into fourth, got around Tomac for third and carried it through to the finish. Roczen took the win just over six seconds ahead of Dungey.

Dungey surged to the front to start Moto 2, securing the holeshot over Roczen, but was unable to keep his Suzuki-mounted rival behind him as Roczen made the pass for the lead on the opening lap. Once out front Roczen was able to duplicate his efforts from the opening moto and built a comfortable lead. Autotrader/Monster Energy/Yamaha's Justin Barcia started the moto in third but soon engaged in a battle with Rockstar Energy Husqvarna Factory Racing's Jason Anderson for the position, with Anderson getting the upper hand on Lap 5. The top three went unchanged from that point on. Roczen took the win just under 15 seconds ahead of Dungey, with Anderson nearly 30 seconds back third.

Roczen's 1-1 effort gave him his second win at Hangtown.

"We're in a way better position than we were last year [when I came in hurt]. That's all behind us and now I can go out and can focus on my riding. I'm really happy with the bike," said Roczen. "I've always done well at Hangtown, but today [the track] was really different. It [had notches] and was hard in certain spots. It's nice to get the first [race] out of the way. I want to bring [my best effort] every single weekend. I played catch up last year [with the injury], so this season I have a chance to start fresh and build momentum. I'm glad I put myself in a good position, but it's still a long year."

Dungey finished in the runner-up spot (2-2) for the sixth straight season. Despite a pair of fourth-place finishes, Tomac rounded out the overall podium in third.

"Overall today was really good. Two seconds is good, but when you look at both races individually we were able to close down on [Roczen's] lead in the first moto. In the second moto he was able to get ahead of me and really [open a] gap. I started to figure out some new lines and closed in again, which is encouraging. I really was trying to adapt to the bike and find that comfort today. I don't typically do that, but I trust everyone at KTM and know we're where we want to be. Round 1 was good and we're going to get better week by week."

Roczen's moto sweep helped him open a six-point lead over Dungey in the initial 450 Class standings. Tomac sits third, 14 points back.

After posting the fastest lap in 250 Class practice, Savatgy kicked off his winning afternoon by racing to the holeshot in the opening moto, with GEICO Honda's Jordon Smith in tow. Behind them, the Yamalube/Star Racing Yamaha tandem of Cooper Webb and defending champion Jeremy Martin slotted into third and fourth. With an open track ahead of him Savatgy was able to establish a gap over Smith, who asserted himself in second over Webb, while Martin stayed close to the rear fender of his teammate.

While Smith kept him in sight for the duration of the moto, Savatgy never received a serious challenge for the top spot and went on to lead all 17 laps of the 30-minute-plus-two-lap moto for his first career moto win. Smith rode solidly in second the entire moto for his best career effort. Webb and Martin engaged and a close battle for third with Martin, winner of the past two Hangtown races, making the pass late in the moto on Lap 11 to steal the final spot on the podium from his teammate.

Moto 2 initially began with Troy Lee Designs/Red Bull/KTM's Jessy Nelson taking the holeshot, with Savatgy mired deep inside the top 10. However, a crash on the opening lap brought out a red flag, halting the moto and resulting in a restart. When the field roared out of the gate for the restart Nelson put his KTM out front again, but this time Savatgy was able to slot into second with Smith in third. Nelson and Savatgy established themselves as the lead duo but Smith started to come under fire from Monster Energy/Pro Circuit/Kawasaki's Austin Forkner, who was making his Lucas Oil Pro Motocross debut. Forkner pressured Smith for several laps and moved into podium position on Lap 5. Two laps later Smith went down while running fourth and dropped to 10th. As the top three continued their run to the finish, Yamalube/Star Racing Yamaha's Alex Martin was on a march to the front. After starting sixth, Martin was able to pass his younger brother Jeremy for fifth early in the moto and proceeded to take over fourth with Smith's misfortune. He closed in on Forker for third and moved into podium position on Lap 8. That placed Forker into the clutches of Jeremy Martin, who made contact with the rookie on Lap 9 as they battled for fourth, dropping Martin to ninth.

Two laps later on Lap 11 the battle for the lead intensified between Nelson and Savatgy, with the Moto 1 winner getting the upper hand to put himself in position for the 1-1 moto sweep. Shortly thereafter Nelson was forced to battle Alex Martin, who moved into second on the following lap. Nelson would continue to lose positions in the closing laps, with Yamalube/Star Racing Yamaha's Aaron Plessinger taking over third on Lap 13. Martin had Savatgy in his sights over the final two laps but couldn't mount a challenge for the lead. Savatgy went on to take the checkered flag and cement his overall win by just over a second. Plessinger followed closely in third.

When the overall results were tallied Savatgy easily claimed his first win at Hangtown.

"I hate the first round so much because there's so many unknowns. You feel good, but you don't know where you're going to be until the gate drops," said Savatgy. "We started good in practice and then got the holeshot and led every lap of the first moto. We got another good start in the second moto and waited until the right opportunity to get by Jessy [Nelson]. My goal this year is to be on the podium [each week] and not throw it away [with a bad race]. There are a lot of good dudes in this class and you don't want to be behind the eight ball. There's not really anything to complain about. It was a perfect day."

Alex Martin's strong performance in the second moto vaulted him into the runner-up spot overall (8-2), while Webb emerged with third overall (4-5) in a hotly contested battle for the final spot on the podium.

"We started with a smooth, fast track in practice, so it wasn't a good indication of the day. I finished about eighth in the first moto, but that wasn't what I was expecting," said Martin, who tied his career-best effort. "I got a great start in the second moto, but then they red flagged it. I still got a decent start the second time around about sixth or so and just kept charging. I eventually got up to the lead group of guys and battled with them. I'm really happy with how everything went."

Savatgy's dominance helped him open a healthy lead in the initial 250 Class point standings, which sits at 15 points over Martin and 16 points over Webb.

The 2016 Lucas Oil Pro Motocross Championship continues next Saturday, May 28, with the FMF Glen Helen National from Glen Helen Raceway in San Bernardino, California.

Team Honda HRC Ready to Take On 2016 AMA Pro Motocross Season

Courtesy of Honda Racing Corporation

After a long 17 weekends of stadium racing that saw Team Honda HRC’s Cole Seely and Trey Canard finish sixth and ninth in the 2016 AMA Supercross series, the riders and team received a one-week break to quickly change gears for the summer’s grueling 12-round AMA Pro Motocross Championship. Beginning with tomorrow’s Hangtown Motocross Classic season opener in Sacramento, California, the series will travel the country before eventually concluding in Crawfordsville, Indiana.

In 2015, Seely showed notable speed during the early part of the season, securing a fifth-place overall finish at Colorado’s Thunder Valley, aided by a fourth in moto two. He would notch one more top-five moto finish before his season was cut short due to injury. Feeling more prepared heading into this year, Seely’s goal is to put together consistent results each weekend. “I don’t necessarily have set position goals for this season, but I want to go out there, get good starts and ride how I have been the past couple weeks,” Seely said. “If I can put that all together and it means I get a win, podiums or top-fives, then that’s what I’m shooting for. I just want to be consistent. I felt like I came in blind last year, never having raced a 450 outdoors, so I feel like I know what to expect this year and know what I want in my bike setup. We got to ride the track for press day, which was a great opportunity to preview things and make some final adjustments before the race.”

After breaking his arm in the latter part of the 2015 supercross season, Canard missed much of the motocross series, only returning to compete in the final four rounds. During his return, he scored two top-five moto finishes and landed third on the podium at Unadilla. Coming into this season healthy, Canard is looking to return to his form from two years ago. “We ended 2014 really strong, so the hope and the ultimate goal is to get back to where we were then—fighting for wins and podiums,” Canard said. “I came in at the end last year and don’t really think I was completely ready, especially with everyone having the full season under their belts and in the swing of things. I feel good though. I think we’ve had some good preparation and I’m excited to line up on Saturday. I’m riding well so I just have to go out there and try to get good starts and put together the rides that I know I’m capable of.”

Eager to turn the page on a challenging supercross season, Team Manager Dan Betley is pleased with the progress the team has made over the past couple of weeks and is confident in Canard and Seely’s ability to fight for the podium each weekend. “The last couple weeks have gone well with both riders,” Betley said. “I’m really impressed with how Cole has stepped it up; he’s been fast at all the tracks where the competition has been riding. He still needs to work on his stamina a little but I think he’s made a lot of improvements from last year. Trey has been looking fast too and is excited for a fresh start after a tough supercross season. There’s no doubt he has the speed, but we just need to get the starts dialed and I think he’ll be a consistent threat for the podium.”

Since beginning their outdoor testing in late March, the team has been working on perfecting the factory CRF450R race settings. “I’m really pleased with how our bike is working,” Betley added. “We started with the settings we had been using last year and have continued to develop them from there. Both riders are happy and comfortable with what we have heading into the season.”

Racing at Hangtown kicks off tomorrow at 1 p.m. local time, with moto one aired live on MavTV, followed by moto two on NBCSN.

ROME, Ga. (May 19, 2016) – Pirelli announced today that it has reached a multi-year agreement to become the official motorcycle tire of the Lucas Oil Pro Motocross Championship, beginning May 21 in Sacramento, California, at the GoPro Hangtown Motocross Classic.

“It’s an exciting day for Lucas Oil Pro Motocross to have reached a multi-year partnership with Pirelli,” said Davey Coombs, President of MX Sports Pro Racing. “The brand has reached a high level of success in many forms of racing across the world and having them as an integral part of the championship is only going to elevate our sport to the next level.”

Pirelli recently debuted its all-new motocross tire, the MX32™ PRO, adding to the already highly successful SCORPION™ MX™ lineup. The highly versatile tire is designed to perform across a variety of conditions and used for a wide-range of skillsets. As an official sponsor in the 2016 Monster Energy AMA Supercross, an FIM World Championship, Pirelli’s newest tire is no stranger to grabbing the holeshot or standing on the podium.

“On behalf of Pirelli, we’re pleased to announce that we will be the official motorcycle tire of Lucas Oil Pro Motocross,” said Chet Plewacki, Pirelli Marketing Director, Moto, NAFTA Region. “As a company Pirelli is driven to do whatever it takes to raise the bar in North America and the MX32™ and new MX32™ PRO show we are in this long-term.”

Last summer’s Lucas Oil Pro Motocross Championship served as a critical role for Pirelli-supported teams such as Autotrader/Monster Energy/Yamaha and BTO Sports/WPS/KTM to develop the MX32™ PRO in race conditions. Off-road enthusiasts benefit from Pirelli’s “we race what we sell, we sell what we race” mindset as the public can purchase the exact tires used by the sports biggest stars like Justin Barcia, Weston Peick, Davi Millsaps, Justin Brayton, and Andrew Short.
