Lucas Oil Pro Motocross Round 9 – Washougal
The premier class was dominated on the weekend by the number 5 Red Bull KTM of Ryan Dungey taking home fastest qualifying, holeshot awards and checked out to win both moto’s comfortably.
Eli Tomac backed up the previous week’s success by going 2-2 for second overall showing some solid consistency for this second half of the season sending him towards the pointy end of the championship standings after an injury earlier on in the season.
Kenny Roczen took third for the day and Aussie Brett Metcalfe rode solid for 4th overall. After some solid finishes Trey Canard ended up in 7th and Aussie Chad Reed had another tough weekend on the rutted and muddy conditions finishing the day in 15th.

A bit of a mixed weekend for most riders apart from the Frenchman Marvin Musquin who has seemingly found another level of speed in the past few weeks taking out both moto’s convincingly. With dominating performances in the past on rutted tracks it appears the European’s are specialists in the tough conditions.
From there the results were all over the place in each moto but the usual suspects filled out the top 10 with Baggett, Martin, Webb and Bogle rounding out the top 5.
Pourcel took a 2nd in moto one and 15th in moto 2 and Cole Seely managed to put his bike inside the top 10 in 9th position.

FIM World Motocross Championship Round 14 - MXGP of Czech Republic
For the first time this season Jeremy Van Horebeek took out the overall win for the day with Antonio Cairoli finishing the day in 3rd. Antonio still has a commanding lead and it will be interesting to see what happens next year when he steps down to the MX2 class to go head to head with Jeffrey Herlings.
Herlings is out for at least 6 weeks suffering a broken femur at a charity event last week. Herlings has been an unbeatable force in the 250 class even having quicker lap times than the 450’s at some rounds and the big question has always been who would come out the victor if Jeffery and Antonio went head to head!
Aussie Dean Ferris had a mixed day ending up 12th for the day with his best finish being 6th in moto two aboard his Husky.
MXGP Points Standings:
- 1. Antonio Cairoli 619pts KTM
