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 a tough weekend for theTeam Rocky Mountain ATV/MC as round eight of the 2019 Pro Motocross Championship came to Spring Creek MX in Millville, MN.
Blake Baggett’s first moto did not go as well as planed, as he would run into a big pileup right after turn one with a number of riders including Jason Anderson. He would soon go down again right after trying to make passes in the same section, as riders were going everywhere with the first lap conditions. As if that wasn’t a rough enough start, Blake went down for a third time on lap two on the face of the large catapult jump. Where most riders would call it a moto, #4 just put his head down, pulled a tear-off from his goggles and found a rhythm that would bring him from nearly a lap down back up to 17th position at the checkered flag. A better start in the second moto allowed Blake to battle inside the top ten the whole moto, crossing the finish line in 9th place at the checkered flag. He would earn 12th overall for the day.

Blake would have another great start, as he grabbed the holeshot, again battling inside the top five until going down late in the race. He would recover and mount a charge through the field to finish 9th, taking 7th overall for the day.

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
