Back on the Bike
Soule returned to the track in Las Vegas after suffering an injury last summer. He didn’t seem to miss a beat as he was able to post a fast time in practice and was running second in his heat race before a crash sent him to the last chance qualifier. In the LCQ, Soule did what he had to do to get to the main event, where he got a slow start off of the gate. Despite the slow start, he had worked his way up to fifth before a rider crashed in front of him, giving no place to go. He recovered to finish ninth.
“I look at tonight as a positive,” said Soulé. “The result doesn’t show it, but I rode well. It’s hard to come from behind because it’s near impossible to not get caught up in some kind of carnage. My speed is good so with more time on the bike we should look good for Sacramento.”
