450 Moto 1 – the holeshot goes to Ryan Villopoto, with Ryan Dungey in second. Then James Stewart, Andrew Short, Trey Canard, and Justin Barcia.
At the five lap mark, it’s Ryan Villopoto comfortably out front. He leads second place Dungey by over 10 seconds. Third is Stewart, then Canard, Barcia, Short, Josh Grant, Justin Brayton, and Brett Metcalfe.
On lap 7, Trey Canard slows, and pulls off the track. He doesn’t look hurt, and didn’t fall – so it’s probably a bike issue.
This 30 minute plus two lap moto was ‘easy’ for RV. He led from start to finish – all 15 laps. Villopoto wins. Ryan Dungey finishes second, almost 20 seconds back. Third place goes to James Stewart. Then Barcia, Grant, Short, Brayton, Tickle, Weimer, Metcalfe, Rattray, and Alessi 12th. Reedy 17th.
250 Moto 1 – Guess who? Wil Hahn with the holeshot! At the end of the first lap, it’s Hahn, Jeremy Martin, Ken Roczen, Adam Cianciarulo, Zach Osborne, Eli Tomac, Martin Davalos, Kyle Cunningham, Alex Martin, Cole Seely, Blake Baggett 11th. Marvin Musquin 24th.
At the end of four laps, it’s Wil Hahn still leading. Jeremy Martin second, Ken Roczen third, and Eli Tomac fourth. All four of them are very close together! Then Zach Osborne, Adam Cianciarulo, and Blake Baggett.
On lap five, Jeremy Martin has overtaken Wil Hahn for the lead! It’s Martin, Hahn, Roczen, and Tomac!
On lap six, with Martin out front, Tomac goes past Roczen and Hahn and moves to second place. It’s Martin, Tomac, Roczen and Hahn top four as lap six is completed.
Lap seven – Eli Tomac has passed Martin and moved into the lead! He’s been so strong these last few races. Running order – Tomac, Martin, Roczen, Osborne, Hahn, Baggett, Cunningham, Cianciarulo, Seely, Davalos. Musquin 12th.
Tomac is pulling away from second place Martin. And now into third place after making a move on Roczen – Zach Osborne. Then Roczen fourth, Hahn fifth, Baggett sixth at the end of 11 laps.
Tomac has been absolutely dominant. If he continues as strong as he’s been the last few weeks, he’s marching towards his first AMA National Motocross Championship. At the end of lap 14, it’s Tomac with an 17 second lead on Martin, Osborne third, Baggett fourth, Roczen in fifth, Hahn sixth. Then Cunningham, Musquin, Cianciarulo, and Seely 10th.
Eli Tomac wins this 15 lap race! Jeremy Martin takes second! Zach Osborne third! Then Baggett, Roczen, Hahn, Cunningham, Musquin, Cianciarulo, Seely 10th.
450 Moto 2 – it’s once again series points leader and 2013 Monster Energy AMA Supercross Series Champion Ryan Villopoto with the holeshot! And then there is a few crashes – one involves Trey Canard, one involves Mike Alessi and one involves James Stewart. At the end of lap one – RV, Barcia, Jake Weimer, Phil Nicoletti, Brett Metcalfe, Josh Grant, Ryan Dungey. Reed is 11th, Canard is back on the track, and Stewart and Alessi have pulled out of the race.
Ryan Villopoto is just on another level. He’s out front, looking to make it a double moto sweep on the day, and one step closer to clinching the 450 National Motocross Championship.
At the end of lap five, it’s RV over second place Barcia by 7 seconds. Third is Jake Weimer, then Josh Grant, Ryan Dungey, and Andrew Short.
10 laps in – RV, Barcia, Weimer, Dungey, Grant, Short, Metcalfe, Nicoletti, Tickle, Canada. Reed 12th. Brayton 15th. Rattray 25th. Canard 32nd. Alessi and Stewart out.
It’s Ryan Villopoto’s day. He wins this 15 lap moto, and sweeps on the day, gaining the maximum 50 points. Second in this moto goes to Justin Barcia – who also takes second overall on the day. Third is Jake Weimer. Dungey takes fourth. The rest of the top ten in this moto: Grant, Metcalfe, Short, Tickle, Nicoletti, Canada. Reed 12th. Canard 26th.
250 Moto 2 – it’s Martin Davalos with the lead, followed closely by Kenny Roczen. But by the end of the first lap, it’s K-Roc with the lead, Justin Bogle into second. Then Davalos, Jeremy Martin, Jason Anderson, Eli Tomac, Wil Hahn, Zach Osborne, Adam Cianciarulo, and Jessy Nelson tenth.
Can Tomac mount a charge and move to the front as he has done the last few motos?
Five laps complete now – Ken Roczen leading, and Eli Tomac has moved up to second! He’s seven seconds back of Roczen. Will he close up on Roczen? Will they battle? Justin Bogle is third, Jeremy Martin fourth. Then Davalos, Hahn, Osborne, Anderson, Baggett, and Justin Hill.
Tomac has closed right up to the back of Roczen. Tomac is running a little bit quicker lap times – can he make the pass?
Roczen and Tomac are literally side by side on certain parts of the track!
On lap ten, Eli Tomac has made the pass for the lead on Ken Roczen!
Just as Ryan Villopoto has been dominant in the 450 class, Eli Tomac has put his stamp on the 250 class this summer. Right now he is the strongest rider in the class.
Eli Tomac has won this final moto of the day, and with it the overall victory in the 250 class. He also extends his series points lead. The rest of the top ten in this moto – Ken Roczen, Jeremy Martin, Justin Bogle, Blake Baggett, Zach Osborne, Martin Davalos, Wil Hahn, Marvin Musquin, and Cole Seely. Jeremy Martin takes second overall on the day – his best finish ever in AMA Motocross.
