Motocross Class Moto 1

Looked like Ryan Dungey had the holeshot, but Supercross Champion Ryan Villopoto is the leader on the first lap. And Villopoto seems to be on his game – he’s pulling away already.

At the five lap mark, it’s Villopoto out front, Ryan Dungey is second, Mike Alessi third, Kevin Windham is next, then Jake Weimer, Davi Millsaps and Chad Reed.

And Villopoto, after 30 minutes plus 2 laps (16 laps total) get his first moto victory of the Motocross season! He wins! Second goes to Ryan Dungey, then Mike Alessi, Davi Millsaps, Chad Reed, Kevin Windham, Jake Weimer, Brett Metcalfe, Christian Craig, and Tommy Hahn.

Number 37, riding a Honda, Darryn Durham is the early leader. And he’s not giving up the first position to any of the ‘factory’ riders. Even at the ten lap mark, Durham is still leading! Dean Wilson has moved into second, Blake Baggett is next, then Tyla Rattray – the Pro Circuit Kawasaki riders chasing Durham!

Fifth at the ten lap mark is Kyle Cunningham, then Eli Tomac, Nico Izzi, Malcolm Stewart, Justin Barcia, Broc Tickle, and Cole Seely.

Durham is looking good out front. But looking even better – Blake Baggett. He just seems to really come to life late in motos. On lap 13, Baggett passes Durham for the lead!

This race will also go 16 laps. And the winner is … Blake Baggett! His teammate Dean Wison moves into second by the checkered flag. Another Pro Circuit rider – Tyla Rattray finishes in third. Durham finishes fourth, then Cunningham, Tomac, Izzi, Barcia M Stewart, and Broc Tickle round out the top ten.

Although nice and sunny during the first motos, rain can come at any time in Pennsylvania this time of the year. And here comes the rain! Mike Alessi, number 800 on the KTM, is the early leader for the first few laps. Mike, who has ridden the KTM 350 for over one year, has changed to racing the KTM 450 for the outdoor AMA Motocross Series.

On lap five though, 2011 MX Series points leader Chad Reed passes Mike for the lead. Running order as they start lap six – Chad Reed first, then Alessi, Ryan Villopoto, Ryan Dungey, Davi Millsaps, Tommy Hahn, Kevin Windham, and T Bright. One thing we’ve noticed in Christophe Pourcel is not racing. Rumor at the French MX GP last weekend was the Christophe might return to Europe to race a green bike.

Reed is riding strong out front – at the ten lap mark he has a 13 second lead over second place Ryan Villopoto. But Villopoto easily has the overall win locked up if his maintains his position. And Reed will maintain his series points lead. At ten laps – Reed first, Villopoto second, then Ryan Dungey, Mike Alessi, Davi Millsaps, and Kevin Windham.

This race goes 14 laps, and Chad Reed is the winner! Second goes to Ryan Villopoto, and Ryan Dungey third. Fourth is Mike Alessi, then Windham, Ricky Dietrich, Tommy Hahn, Nick Wey, Brett Metcalfe, and Jake Weimer.

Overall results of the day have Villopoto winning, Ryan Dungey second, Chad Reed third. Full results will be below. And those three, all Supercross class Champions, are the top three in Motocross points after three rounds – Reed on top with 138, Villopoto second with 123, and Dungey third with 111.

Blake Baggett is continuing his strong riding today. The muddy track is much different than in the first race, as evident by lap times. Baggett has run the quickest lap – 2 minutes 24 seconds, and most riders are averaging around 2 minutes 30 second.

At the five lap mark it’s Baggett with the lead, teammate Tyla Rattray second, Cole Seely on the Honda third, Eli Tomac on Honda fourth, then Justin Barcia, Broc Tickle, Malcolm Stewart, Alex Martin, Jason Anderson and T Baker round out the top ten.

This race is going to go 15 laps – and the winner of the race, the overall on the day by winning both motos – Monster Energy Pro Circuit Kawasaki’s Blake Baggett! Tyla Rattray finishes second in the moto, and second overall. Third in this moto goes to Eli Tomac, then Broc Tickle, Cole Seely, Alex Martin, Justin Barcia, Dean Wilson, T Baker, and Malcolm Stewart.

It’s a three way battle at the top of the 250 MX Lites class – all team PC members. Rattray has taken over the top spot with 127, followed by Wilson at 125, and Baggett at 116.
