6/25/2007 - BBR's Derek Costella wins big at 2007 Del Mar Mini MX

Derek Costella Scores another Win for the BBR/Monster Energy Team

Del Mar, CA – (June 25th 2007) BBR/Monster Factory Rider, Derek Costella, continued his win streak with a victory in the 12” Expert class, at the Del Mar Mini SX. Derek got a great start with the holeshot and then traded positions with Tyson Burmeister on the first lap. Costella marked Burmeister, staying on his wheel, until the time was right and then made his move. Derek carried big momentum into the burly whoops section, stayed on the gas, and roared by Burmeister to take over the lead. The aggressive move was enough to open a gap which Burmiester was not able to close. Costella rode very cleanly with no mistakes in the remaining laps and ended his day on top of the podium, making it two consecutive wins in the 12” class this season. Tyson Burmeister finished the race in second place and Ryan Beat was the next across the line in 3rd.

“The whoops were pretty deep this year and I knew my BBR Perimeter frame would give me an advantage there, so I hit it hard and blew by him on that section. Once I got a gap I just got into a groove and rode smooth.” -Derek Costella, BBR/Monster Energy Factory Rider

Derek has proven again just how potent he is on his BBR Perimeter frame KLX110. He had a major win last month in Las Vegas where he cut the fastest lap times and won the MiniMoto SX 12” main event for the second year in a row. Derek always puts on a great show for the crowd and the Del Mar spectators were treated to a great show.

Look for Derek Costella and other BBR/Monster Factory Riders at the upcoming Mini SX and MX races.
