Team Rocky Mountain ATV/MC-KTM-WPS headed to Colorado as round three of the 2019 Pro Motocross Championship series visited Thunder Valley MX in Lakewood, CO this past weekend. Riders Blake Baggett and Justin Bogle rode solid, each earning top ten overall finishes.
Blake Baggett raced both motos with a sore wrist from last weekend’s first crash at Pala. Even though it was much better, his wrist was still held him back. In moto one, he rounded the first turn inside the top five. Soon, he found himself defending his top five position while battling the muddy track conditions from the rain earlier in the day. Ultimately, he kept the charge holding on to cross the checkered flag in 7th. Blake would start moto two up front, as he lead the field up the hill into turn one. With the track now dried out, he would battle for position inside the top five for the first half of the race. He would hit his lines, again taking 7th, earning 7th overall for the day.
SoCal SuperTrucks Backed Team Rocky Mountain ATV/MC traveled south as the second round of the 2019 Pro Motocross Championship series made it’s return to Southern California’s Pala Raceway since 2011 this past weekend.
Blake Baggett started out the morning by setting the 5th fastest lap in practice, then timed the gate perfectly in moto one, leading the field into the first turn to grab the holeshot. Early on in the race he would then find himself under attack from the rest of the riders, and shuffled back to 2nd. Then after a pass by Anderson he dropped down to 3rd. Blake fought back, passing Anderson for 2nd and then ran Roczen down quickly to battle for the lead as they headed into the third lap. Blake would run into something in the track headed into turn one that was so solid, it bent his front wheel, and more forcing him to stop for a front wheel change in the pits. Unfortunately, he jammed his throttle wrist in the impact as well. He would go out and race Moto 2, but the pain in his wrist from the first moto crash proved too much to stay with the lead pack. Blake would continue till the end to grab what will be critical championship points come the end of the season.
Team Rocky Mountain ATV/MC descended upon Las Vegas, NV for the 17th and final round of the 2019 AMA Supercross season this past Saturday night. SoCal SuperTrucks Backed Riders Blake Baggett and Justin Bogle finished out the season both with top ten finishes.
Blake Baggett launched out of the gate in his heat leading the field to the first turn and grabbed the holeshot. He looked fast on the hard packed track and set the pace early on. He would ride with intensity, only sliding back a few spots to finish third and transfer straight to the main event. The #4 again had a solid jump out of the gate, rounding the first turn inside the top five. Blake would start to have a solid ride going, finding his classic mid-race push as he closed in on the top five. He then had an unfortunate off-track jaunt that cost him two spots, taking the checkered flag in 7th place and earning 5th place overall in the final supercross points standings.
