Freestone MX Park
450 Race 1 – Early leader is Brett Metcalfe, number 24 on the Geico Honda. Don’t see Andrew Short come by on first lap. (Learn a few minutes later his bike wouldn’t start.) Both Chad Reed and Mike Alessi have poor starts. Ryan Dungey, 2010 AMA Supercross Champion, who did not finish as well as he would of liked at the first round two weeks ago at Hangtown, eventually moves into the lead. And Ryan Dungey seems to be ‘back’ – he won the race convincingly! By almost 30 seconds! Lap times for these 450 Motocross riders are around 2 minutes 10 seconds.
The defending MX Champ, 2009 AMA 450 National Motocross Champion Chad Reed put on a great charge in the heat to come all the way up to second position at the checkered. Third place goes to Lucas Oil Honda racer Ben Townley. Thomas Hahn is next, Josh Grant follows, then Kyle Regal, Brett Metcalfe, Michael Byrne, K Chisholm, D Millsaps, Nick Wey, Mike Alessi finishes a surprising 12th.
250 Race 1 – It’s rookie Eli Tomac, the rider who won his first ever pro race in Sacramento two weeks ago, with the lead! Tomac is out front and leading – looking like a seasoned pro! Christophe Pourcel is a few places back.
But Pourcel is making a charge. He moves into second, closes the gap, then bobbles, and then makes the pass on Tomac for the lead!
At the finish, the race is won by Frenchman Christophe Pourcel! Eli Tomac is second, then Dean Wilson, Trey Canard, Jake Weimer, Tyla Rattray, Blake Wharton, Broc Tickle, Wil Hahn, and Justin Barcia tenth.
Its the start of 450 Motocross Race 2 – and its Brett Metcalfe leading at the start again! At the end of the first lap its Metcalfe, then Mike Alessi second, Andrew Short, Ryan Dungey, Kyle Regal, Chad Reed. Ben Townley comes by near last – a crash near the start.
Alessi moves quickly past Metcalfe, and is leading. Andrew Short running third. Dungey is back just a bit. Regal and Reed are back a little ways from there.
Dungey keeps charging. Halfway into the race, leader Mike Alessi has crashed. It puts Ryan Dungey into the lead now! Brett Metcalfe is second, Andrew Short third, Kyle Regal is fourth, Chad Reed is fifth, and Alessi is now sixth.
Dungey is out front, way ahead of second place, which is Brett Metcalfe. Kyle Regal has passed Andrew Short & moved into third! Short fourth, Reed fifth, Alessi sixth. Ryan Dungey is looking like he is going to sweep both motos – he is leading by almost 20 seconds right now. Townley has moved into 15th.
With Dungey out front, Regal passes Metcalfe and moves into second with just two laps to go. Reed passes Short as well. The top six – Dungey, Regal, Metcalfe, Reed, Short, Alessi. And now Reed has gone past Metcalfe …
Ryan Dungey has won the moto, and the overall in the 450 Motocross class at Freestone MX! 1 / 1 finishes!
Second in this moto is Kyle Regal, then Chad Reed, Brett Metcalfe, Mike Alessi, Andrew Short, Matt Goerke, Kyle Cunningham, Kyle Chisholm, and Josh Grant tenth.
Ryan Dungey said: We put in our work the last couple of weeks … actually, it goes all the way back to after the Vegas Supercross really. I admit we didn’t have a good race at Hangtown, but we kept after it as a team and pulled through in some pretty tough conditions in Texas. We know each other very well after four-plus years together and you could say we drew on our experience to win this overall. This was a team win.
250 Moto 2 – At the end of the first lap – Eli Tomac once again up front! Dean Wilson is second! Christophe Pourcel is 12th.
As the riders settle down, it’s Eli Tomac out front, Dean Wilson second, Blake Wharton is third, Trey Canard fourth, Tyla Rattray fifth. Christophe Pourcel is tenth.
Dean Wilson has passed Eli Tomac for the lead. So it’s Wilson leading, Tomac next, and into third is former MX2 World Motocross Champion Tyla Rattray! Fourth is Trey Canard, next Broc Tickle, followed by Max Anstie, then Wil Hahn chased by Christophe Pourcel.
Wilson leading … Tomac seems to be having some sort of problem. He seems to be slowing. The running order with about 10 minutes to go in the race: Wilson, Tyla Rattray, Broc Tickle, Max Anstie, and Christophe Pourcel has moved up to sixth! Trey Canard, Wil Hahn, and Tomac follow.
Things keep on changing as the race comes down to it’s finish. Tyla Rattray is having his best ride in a long time – he has passed team-mate Wilson and moved into the lead! Broc Tickle has moved past Wilson now too! The running order – Rattray, Tickle, Wilson, Max Anstie, Christophe Pourcel. It could be that Christophe Pourcel will win the overall, and extend the series points lead!
Tyla Rattray has won the moto! Christophe Pourcel has won the overall! The running order of this race: Rattray, Tickle, Wilson, Anstie, Pourcel, W Hahn, Canard, Barcia, Davalos, Blake Baggett, and 11th goes to Eli Tomac.
