Team Husqvarna’s Andrew DeLong pitted himself not only against tough conditions in the John Penton GNCC but also a competitive field to finish eighth in the race with the legendary tough-as-nails reputation.
It was not only race time temperatures in the mid 20- degrees Celsius and high humidity that hindered riders. The pro class contestants also greeted with a drenching rainstorm as they approached the starting line. Andrew DeLong got off to a good start and was able to maintain a brisk pace within range of the leaders in the early stages.
Rain made the track progressively slicker as the race progressed and Andrew suffered a series of crashes that dropped him out of podium contention.Despite the tricky conditions DeLong still managed to bring his Husqvarna FE 350 home in eighth place for a creditable top ten finish.
