Tonglet said, “I’ve got a great group of guys behind me who get the bike back to running in no time, To be able to go to the 3rd run of the season and get both bikes in the final round it was just unbelievable. This won’t be the last time both bikes are in the finals and we’re going to put on a exceptional show.”
Tonglet raced past Cory Reed, Andrew Hines and Scott Pollacheck before entering the final round. Savoie defeated Matt Smith, Hector Arana Jr. and No.1 qualifier Eddie Krawiec on his way to the finals.
