Race Preview Southwick Outdoor MX

With the risk of rain this end of the week, Rd.6 of the Lucas Oil Motocross Championship heads to ‘The Sandbox’. Truth is stranger than fiction, we are hustling at Southwick MX-338, for the last Outdoor National at the renowned worldwide sand track. We should investigate the best riders in both the 250 and 450 classes and review this present end of the week’s race.

250 Preview (Mike B.)

Blake Baggett – It has turned out to be obvious that the Chupacabra is in actuality back. Baggett snatched his first moto win and in general of the year. This could be the begin of something… Baggett resembled his old self and with one win added to his repertoire, I think there is another coming soon.

Eli Tomac – Dude was flying. Tomac began outside the main 10 and made the move into the lead position somewhat more than part of the way through the race. On the off chance that this person can get a holeshot and ride that way, it’s over for every other person. There is nobody that can coordinate the pace that Tomac kept running in that second moto. I think he gets the by and large on the off chance that he was riding like he was a weekend ago.

Marvin Musquin – Musquin has stayed reliable for this entire year and snatched yet another platform at Budds Creek. A 2-7 complete was sufficient for third by and large, yet it allowed Baggett to increase some ground on him in the focuses standings. Marvin still keeps up third in the arrangement 11 focuses in front of Blake and 12 focuses behind Eli. The sand could play into Musquin’s support as he did well here a year ago – anticipate that the Frenchman will keep the platform coming.

Ken Roczen – Roczen still keeps up the focuses lead after his fourth place (and most exceedingly terrible coincidentally) complete this previous end of the week. He simply didn’t look the same as the Roczen that emerged ready to take care of business in Hangtown. Some are scrutinizing his wellness once more, particularly after the abbreviated rest time frame in the middle of motos so we have the delight of watching the races live on TV.

Wil Hahn – Excellent ride for Hahn in his first outside race back. He got extraordinary begins and held his position well demonstrating that he has the speed as well as the perseverance to last the whole moto. Hahn appears to be the following best person on the group after Tomac. Expect a platform soon from Hahn – perhaps not this end of the week, but rather soon enough.

Jason Anderson – Anderson looked astounding in the principal moto in transit to his fourth place wrap up. After a moto like that, it’s anything but difficult to see the potential there and that this child has platform capacity. A terrible second moto kept that from happening a week ago. On the off chance that Anderson can string together some predictable rides in consecutive motos, he can get himself a spot on the platform. He will be in the fourth to seventh territory generally speaking at Southwick.

Darryn Durham – Excited to see that this person handled his first platform of the year with a third place complete a week ago. Its rides like that one that show why Mitch Payton marked this privateer in any case. A period of highs and lows up to this point, perhaps this platform can light a fire under Durham and he can nail some more platform.

Kyle Cunningham – Typical ride a week ago for Cunningham, 7-9 for eighth by and large. Not appalling by any methods and superior to any other individual on that group actually. Anticipate that Cunningham will remain ideal around this zone for the rest of the year with MAYBE a breakout ride or two.

Zach Osborne – Another poor first moto for Osborne a week ago however he looked exceptionally strong in that second moto. He presumably doesn’t care for being the third place fellow under LaRocco’s tent, anticipate that him will turn out terminating in Southwick and secure a platform spot.

Justin Hill – While it wasn’t extraordinary by any methods, it was one if Hill’s better general completions of the year. In any event Mitch Payton had three riders in the main 10 at an open air race, something that hasn’t happened once this year. In the event that Cianciarulo can keep it together and Davalos puts in one of his sometimes great rides, there can be 5 Pro Circuit folks in the main 10. That will be the day…
