Estenson Racing’s Kolby Carlile heads to Peoria, Illinois, for the 72nd annual Peoria TT, round 14 of the American Flat Track season, on Saturday, August 18. The defending AFT Singles Champion looks to improve on last year’s runner-up performance by taking the top step on the podium in 2018 aboard his Yamaha YZ450F.
After a rough few races in Sturgis and Rapid City, Carlile put his head down and put in the man-hours on his practice bike to prepare for Peoria. The “Flying Tomato” feels that it was time well-spent and brings with him a lot of confidence going into one of the sport’s legendary venues.
Kolby Carlile – AFT Singles #1:
“I am very excited going into Peoria this weekend. I finished second there last year, and I want to bring home the win this time. I’ve had a really good week of riding. I think that is something that I needed to do a bit more. I am confident it will pay dividends this weekend.”
