Welcome to the principal outside training report of the year, coming to you from the Hangtown Motocross office in Northern California. The fans couldn’t request more; from the unseasonably cool (for California) temperatures, to the stacked classes, to the flawlessly prepared track, the elements are set up to create a hazardous first round in what could be a season for the ages.

Despite the fact that the principal door hasn’t dropped yet, the firecrackers have just begun. In the wake of setting the quickest lap time practically speaking by right around a whole second finished Chad Reed, KTM’s Mike Alessi endured a horrendous crash when he went over the bars on what resembled a seat-bob turned out badly. Alessi hit his head sufficiently hard to thump himself out for a lot of time, and caused what his torque, Kelly Lumgair, portrayed as “a truly decent blackout.” Needless to state, Alessi won’t race today, and could miss a couple of more adjusts later on. In third was Kevin Windham with 2:06.936, trailed by Christophe Pourcel (2:07.312), Davi Millsaps (2:07.485), Ryan Villopoto (2:07.544), Brett Metcalfe (2:07.816), Ryan Dungey (2:07.839), Tommy Hahn (2:08.543) and Jake Weimer (2:09.653).

In the 250 class, it was French newcomer Marvin Musquin who set the quickest time with a 2:08.317, however Justin Barcia wasn’t a long ways behind with a 2:08.848. Barcia said that he wasn’t pushing it practically speaking, and has more speed he can take advantage of if vital. Dignitary Wilson was third speediest with a 2:09.344, with Eli Tomac (2:09.580) and Ryan Sipes (2:10.306) balancing the best five.
