Thor’s Baggett Maintains Double Digit Points Lead

Thor’s Blake Baggett held onto a double digit points lead in the 250 class of the Lucas Oil Pro Motocross Championship Series heading into a two-week break. Following a tough opening moto at Washougal Motocross Park in Washougal, Wa. where he posted a sixth-place finish, Baggett kept his composure in the second moto to capture his eighth moto win of the season. Baggett’s 6-1 finish placed him third overall on the day.

Thor’s 450 class riders remained consistent with Jake Weimer and Broc Tickle finishing in the top five. Weimer started the day off with a third-place finish in the first moto and rode to a fourth overall finish with a 3-5 moto result. Tickle, who has only finished higher than seventh twice this season, posted a 6-4 to finish fifth overall. Mike Brown put together his best moto finish since joining the series at RedBud with an 11th-place result, but retired early in Moto 2 to finish 18th overall. Tyla Rattray finished the day 19th overall with a 15-18.

At the 11th round of the FIM MX World Championship in Russia, Tommy Searle bounced back from a tough race last weekend to finish second overall with a 3-2 moto result in the MX2 class. Despite having to pull in for repairs in the opening moto, Thor’s Joel Roelants was able to post a 5-4 moto result to finish just off the podium with fourth overall. In the MX1 class, Gautier Paulin overcame tough starts to finish seventh overall with a 7-7 result, while Xavier Boog was 11th overall with a 14-9.
