Sean Collier: World Two-Stroke Championship Repeat
Sunday, the 6th we found ourselves out at Glen Helen with the boys from FMF; Don Emler, Danny LaPorte, and Little D. Fasthouse was there to support Sean. Sean was defending last year’s title win riding a bike supplied by Dave Simon and supported by FMF Racing.
Sean hadn’t raced since he competed in the Red Bull Day in the Dirt this past Thanksgiving. He found himself in the lead half way through the first moto, when he began to experience major arm pump and gave up the lead to Justin Jones. He fought back, going ahead once again, only in the end up falling back to take third.
A couple hours later they were back on the starting line for moto 2. Sean came out swinging, fighting to hang on to 2nd place behind Justin. With only a couple laps to go, Justin’s bike suffered an electrical failure. Sean went on to collect the win and the 2014 Two Stroke Championship. Justin pushed his bike across to take 15th. Both these guys put on one hell-of-a-show.
