March 5, 2018 - Livingston, CA - Kyle Chisholm piloted his 51FIFTY Energy Drink Yamaha YZ450F to another 13th place overall finish at this weekend's Triple Crown Supercross in Atlanta. After 3 intense main events, Kyle and the team are satisfied with another Top-15 performance.

The unique format added extra pressure to the morning practice sessions where Chisholm qualified 14th out of 57 riders. He was able to transfer directly to the night program and participate in the 3 Main Events.

Crashes on the tricky red clay would plague Chisholm's night. His starts were on par with other riders, finding himself up front on the early laps. However, early crashes in Main 1 and 3 would hinder his overall performance. Kyle ran close to the Top-10 for most of the night and showed true grit and determination as he picked himself up and continued to race. Main Event 2 was his best performance of the 450 campaign with an 11th.

Main Event 1: 13
Main Event 2: 11
Main Event 3: 13
Overall: 13th

"It was an up and down night for me, literally," Chisholm said lightheartedly after the race. "I crashed in the first Main on the first lap really hard. A rider didn't jump in front of me so I swerved and landed on the tuff blocks and went straight over the bars into the next jump. In the third Main I was making some passes and just before lap 2 my back tire missed the rut on a double and I high sided really bad and got clipped by another bike. I ended up coming back to 13th both times with the bike being tweaked. Overall I'm happy with my riding besides the crashes, and still looking for the Top 10."
