Team Rocky Mountain ATV/MC headed to the mid-west as the 12th and final round of the 2019 Pro Motocross Championship took to the Ironman MX track in Crawfordsville, IN this past weekend. Benny Bloss would charge to end the season with 8th overall, while Justin Bogle battled to 14th.
Benny Bloss had the line around the Ironman track, as he laid down a heater to post the second fastest time in morning qualifying. His first moto would leave something to be desired, however, as he went down on the first lap. Benny put his head down and put on a charge from deep in the field to inside of the top 10, taking the checkered flag in 8th place. A better start in moto two allowed Benny to battle inside the top 10 for the full moto, earning another 8th place finish. Even with missing the first part of the season, Benny’s solid rides earned him 12th overall in the championship points.
Entering the second to last round, Team Rocky Mountain ATV/MC headed to just outside Washington D.C. as round eleven of the 2019 Pro Motocross Championship visited Budds Creek MX in Mechanicsville, MD.
Benny Bloss launched out of the gate in moto one to start inside the top ten. The #29 rider would continue to move forward, taking the checkered flag in 7th place. In Moto two, Benny found himself outside the top ten early in the race. In the heat of the day, he would work his way to 11th place at the checkered flag, earning him 9th overall for the day.
It was fun in the sand as Team Rocky Mountain ATV/MC visited The Wick 338 in Southwick, MA this past weekend for round six of the 2019 Pro Motocross Championship.
Blake Baggett started moto one just outside the top ten and kept the charge pushing his way into the top ten five minutes into the race. After slipping back a few spots, a late race push kept him battling inside the top ten, taking the checkered flag in 10th. Blake would have a challenging second moto. After rounding the first turn inside the lead pack, he found himself going backward outside the top ten. He would quickly recover, and moved forward to earn 12th overall for the day.
“Today was tough. While I had the speed out there, I’m disappointed in this weekend’s performance. We will regroup and be ready to fight for a podium spot this weekend at RedBud.”Blake Baggett

He kept the momentum going in moto one as he launched out of the gate leading the field into the first turn to secure the holeshot. He stayed on the gas, as he held off a charge from Eli Tomac and pulled out a sizable lead to run away with the moto win. Moto two wouldn’t start as well as the first, as Blake slipped back to the tail end of the top ten after the first lap. He feverishly started working his way forward just outside the top five until going down hard mid-race. Blake would remount to finish 15th, earning 7th overall for the day.
