Smage’s latest success came in the high altitude of Texas Creek, Colorado, April 28-29, where he dominated both days of competition on the rocs. He wasn’t quite perfect but pretty darn close.

Day one, Smage dropped 16 points; compare that to runner-up Alex Niederer’s 70 and you get an idea just how good Smage was. Another eight points back was Daniel Blanc-Gonnet, making it a GasGas 2-3.

The next-best rider was Sam Fastle (Sherco) with 129 points lost.

Things were a little close on day two but not by much. Smage took the win with a 12 on his scorecard. Next best was Blanc-Gonnet with a 47.

Blanc-Gonnet again battled it out for second with Niederer. They both dropped 47 points on the day but Blanc-Gonnet got the nod for having the most cleans.

Fastle was again fourth with 96 points.

“Overall, it was a good weekend,” said Smage. “I had a lot of clean rides during the two days, so overall I feel like I’m riding well. There are a few little things I need to work on to improve for the remainder of the season, but the factory Sherco is working really well and I’m really looking forward to the east coast rounds.”
