This past weekend marked the start of the Pro Motocross Outdoors Nationals Season at Hangtown MX! SoCal SuperTrucks Supported Team Rocky Mountain ATV/MC rider Blake Baggett came out swingging in round one, securing a top 5 finish, while Benny Bloss locked in a solid 7th, and Dakota Alix finishing in 18th.

By Blake Baggett’s performance at Hangtown, it’s no wonder he has been regarded as one of the favorites for the championship! He came out of the gate in the first moto on the gas, and rounded the first turn inside the top 10. He moved up several positions to finish in 7th place. As the gates dropped in the second moto, Blake again shot off the line, this time starting the race outside the top ten. Fear not, as in true “El Chupacabra” fashion, Blake put his head down and charged through position after position to break into the top 5, and ultimately finish the moto in 4th. His 7-4 score would earn him a 5th overall.
