It was a tough night for Team Rocky Mountain ATV/MC -KTM-WPS as round six of the 2019 AMA Supercross season traveled to US Bank Stadium in Minneapolis, MN this past Saturday night.
Blake Baggett started the day looking fast on the Minneapolis track as he recorded the 5th fastest time of the day in qualifying. In his heat race
he would rocket out of the gate and round the first turn inside the top three. Blake hit his lines every lap and rode strong to finish 5th, transferring straight to the main. Another great start in the main event had Blake rounding the first turn inside the top four. He would ride a calculated race, keeping the pressure on Ken Roczen for over ¾ of the race until making his move towards the front and for 3rd place. His night would take a turn for the worse, however, when he mistimed a set of rollers and crashed hard. After catching his breath, Blake would get up with only minor bruises and ride back to the pits on his own power ending his night.
