Despite taking a season-long thrashing from Indian Motorcycles in the American Flat Track Pro Twins series, where Indian factory riders have the top three spots and 9 of the 10 race victories, Harley-Davidson took the win last night in the X-Games Flat Track competition.
Riding the relatively ancient XR750, Sammy Halbert held off Indian factory riders Jared Mees and Brad Baker, who finished second and third, respectively. The Indian riders inherited their podium positions when Harley-mounted Jeffrey Carver, Jr. got a flat front tire with a lap remaining. You can watch the entire race on the X-Games web site here.
