450 Moto 1 – This race is being led by … the guy that’s dominated the Supercross and Motocross season so far – Ryan Dungey. Ryan has lead from the start. And he’s making it look easy, as he has most of the motocross season so far.

This race also marks the return of James Stewart. Let’s say that James is ‘not happy’ about not being on the USA’s Motocross of Nations team for 2010.

So Dungey leads the entire moto, Stewart is about ten seconds back … but he stalls or crashes at the bottom of a hill, and World Number 2 in MX1 Clement Desalle (SUZ) goes by. The top three at the finish of this first moto – Dungey win another win. Clement Desalle scores a second, James Stewart third in his first race since mid January.

Fourth goes to Andrew Short, then Brett Metcalfe, Ben Townley, Kyle Regal, Kyle Chisholm, and Thomas Hahn ninth.

250 Moto 1 – at the end of the first lap, it’s Dean Wilson leading, team-mate Christophe Pourcel second, and Justin Barcia third. On the second lap, Pourcel goes by Wilson and into the lead. But later on that second lap, Pourcel, riding with the red background plates and the number 377, hits the ground at high speed. Pourcel eventually gets back on the bike … but he’s out of the moto. This opens the door for Trey Canard (second in points) to make up some ground.

The leader now – Dean Wilson. Second place Justin Barcia, Canard has moved into third.

On lap eight, home-state racer Justin Barcia literally forces his way past Wilson and into the lead! Wilson hits the dirt! The running order now – Justin Barcia leading, Trey Canard second, Wilson remounted in third, then Blake Wharton, Eli Tomac, Tyla Rattray, and Jim Decotis.

This has been a tough race up front! After 16 laps, with lap times averaging around 2 minutes 12 seconds per lap for the top guys – Trey Canard is the winner! Second place goes to team-mate Blake Wharton. Third is … another Geico Honda team rider, Justin Barcia!

Fourth thru tenth – Eli Tomac, Tyla Rattray, Dean Wilson, Nico Izzi, Matt Lemoine, Cole Seely, and Martin Davalos. Canard has made up 25 points on series leader Christophe Pourcel.

450 Moto 2 – It’s Andrew Short and Justin Brayton side by side into the first corner – with Brayton emerging the leader. On the second lap, Short is now the leader, Brayton is next, then Clement Desalle and Ryan Dungey. James Stewart is outside the top ten. On lap three – it’s Andrew Short in the lead, Clement Desalle is second, Ryan Dungey third, Justin Brayton fourth. Kevin Windham is 7th. Mike Alessi is 11th. James Stewart is 12th.

On lap six, Clement Desalle, who normally races in the World Motocross Series, which has a Grand Prix next weekend in Brazil, has overtaken Andrew Short for the lead. It’s Desalle first, Dungey has gone past Short as well – Dungey is second. Then it’s Short, Brett Metcalfe, Justin Brayton, Ben Townley, and Kevin Windham. James Stewart has pulled off the race track and headed back to his pit area.

Desalle is leading, but Dungey is right behind him. Short is about five seconds behind the duo. Metcalfe is closing on Short. Dungey is literally right behind Desalle, checking out his lines, but also trying to force a mistake. Desalle holds steady. They are far ahead of the rest of the field. Lap times for these two are right around 2 minutes 11 seconds.

On lap ten, Ryan Dungey has passed Clement Desalle for the lead. It’s Dungey, Desalle less than a second behind, Metcalfe is third, then Short, Windham, Brayton, Regal, Townley, Chisholm, R Sipes, Josh Grant, T Hahn and M Alessi.

Ryan Dungey has won this 16 lap moto! And the overall! It’s his eighth overall victory in a row! Clement Desalle finished second. Next week Brazil for him. Brett Metcalfe takes third in the moto, and third overall – another great day for Brett on the 450. Kevin Windham has a nice ride to take away fourth from Andrew Short in this moto. Shorty gets fifth, then Kyle Regal, Justin Brayton, Kyle Chisholm, Ben Townley, and Ryan Sipes round out the top ten of this race.

Is it possible for Dungey to clinch the championship at the next race, two weeks from now, in Southwick MA.

250 Moto 2 – lots of riders on the ground near the first corner. At the end of the first lap, the leader is … Trey Canard! Dean Wilson is second. Tyla Rattray is third. Fourth is Justin Barcia, fifth is Christophe Pourcel. Blake Wharton is outside of the top 15 …

On lap six, it’s Trey Canard out front, Dean Wilson second, Christophe Pourcel has moved into third! Tyla Rattray is fourth, then Eli Tomac, Justin Barcia, and Darryn Durham.

On lap eight, Chris Pourcel has passed team-mate Dean Wilson and moved into second. It’s Carnard first, Pourcel second, Wilson third, then Rattray, Barcia, Tomac, Durham, and Davalos. Wharton is up to tenth.

On the 15th lap, Christophe Pourcel has overtaken Canard for the lead position. The running order – Pourcel, Canard, Dean Wilson is third, then Tyla Rattray fourth, Justin Barcia fifth, Eli Tomac is sixth, then Durham, Davalos, Blake Wharton and T Baker is tenth.

Christophe Pourcel wins the moto, but Trey Canard wins the overall with his second place finish in this moto. The running order at the checkered – Pourcel, Canard, Wilson, Rattray, Barcia, Tomac, Durham, Davalos, Wharton, Baker.

Pourcel leads Canard by 16 points with three rounds remaining in the 2010 series – Southwick, Steel City, and Pala.

This race, even before it happened, created attention of fans worldwide. For three reasons – the first is that James Stewart made his return to racing, after being off the track since January due to wrist injury. The second is the member selection of the 2010 Team USA for next month’s Motocross of Nations near Denver. (From what we’ve heard, there has been quite a lot of activity, meetings, and maybe some flaring tempers regarding the selection process.) And third, Clement Desalle of Belgium, currently ranked number 2 in the World Motocross Grand Prix series in the MX 1 class, is racing.
