Also putting together strong rides at the EnduroCross were Thor’s Mike Brown and Destry Abbott. Brown was able to score fifth, while Abbott, who was sore from a mid-week crash, raced to a ninth-place finish. In the Women’s class, Maria Forsberg finished on the podium in third.

A beautiful day greeted riders at the fourth round of the Lucas Oil Pro Motocross Series at High Point Raceway in Mount Morris, Pa. Thor’s Jake Weimer backed-up his 450 class podium result from last week to race to a 3-3 moto result for third overall. Both Brett Metcalfe and Broc Tickle seemed to find each other in both motos, battling for position. Metcalfe ended the day sixth overall with a 7-5 moto score, while Tickle was seventh after a crash in the second moto pushed him back to score 6-9 on the day.

In the 250 class, Baggett started the day with a third place in Moto 1, but two crashes in the second moto pushed him back to finish fourth overall with a 3-5 result. Baggett still leads the championship standings by seven points. Teammate Ivan Tedesco rode solid in the opening moto, finishing seventh, but had to come through the pack in the second moto to score 10th for seventh overall.
