Dubach Racing Development congratulates Matt Buyten on earning X-Game Step-Up Gold. Buyten put his DR.D-backed Honda CRF450 three stories above Staples Center floor in the final elimination, clearing 33’6” in route to his 3rd Gold Medal.
“The ground was slick but my bike was really smooth right off the bottom, I got a great drive and then just came flying up the ramp,” explained Buyten. “At the apex, looking down, I was definitely over the bar; I just had to land it at that point.”
The DR.D staff at Staples could not have been more proud of Buyten; staff who watched on TV at DR.D hope the screams from our SoCal headquarters could be heard.
