NEW BERLIN, N.Y. – The Lucas Oil Pro Motocross Championship, sanctioned by AMA Pro Racing, hosted its annual stop from Central New York on Saturday, with the 10th round of the season from Unadilla. Continuing his dominance of the 450 Class field, Red Bull KTM’s Ryan Dungey, of Belle Plaine, Minn., captured his second career title with two rounds remaining by sweeping the day’s motos for his eighth consecutive victory. In the 250 Class, Red Bull KTM’s Marvin Musquin, of France, broke through for his first career win on U.S. soil.

BTO Sports/Palmetto Suzuki’s Michael Byrne, of Australia, and Team Yoshimura Suzuki’s James Stewart, of Haines City, Fla., battled for the early lead in the opening 450 Class moto, with Stewart taking the spot on the second lap. However, the following lap, Stewart crashed out of the lead, dropping to the tail end of the field and allowing Byrne to reassume the position. The same lap, Monster Energy Kawasaki’s Jake Weimer, of Rupert, Idaho, passed Byrne but went down moments later, unable to finish the race.

WASHOUGAL, Wash. – The Lucas Oil Pro Motocross Championship, sanctioned by AMA Pro Racing, made its annual stop in the Pacific Northwest on Saturday, hosting the eighth round of the season from Washougal MX Park. For the sixth consecutive race, Red Bull KTM’s Ryan Dungey, of Belle Plaine, Minn., claimed the overall win, but not without some pressure from his closest title contender – MotoConcepts Suzuki’s Mike Alessi, of Victorville, Calif. In the 250 Class, GEICO Honda’s Justin Barcia, of Monroe. N.Y., raced to his second victory of the 2012 season, following a strong and consistence outing.

Alessi grabbed the holeshot in the opening moto of the 450 Class and set a fast pace early on, with Jeff Ward Racing Kawasaki’s Josh Grant, of Riverside, Calif., and Monster Energy Kawasaki’s Jake Weimer, of Rupert, Idaho, in tow. Following a fourth-place start, Dungey quickly began to move his way forward and positioned himself behind Alessi on the second lap.

MILLVILLE, Minn. – The Lucas Oil Pro Motocross Championship, sanctioned by AMA Pro Racing, made its lone visit to the Land of 10,000 Lakes on Saturday with its seventh round of the season from Spring Creek MX Park. After another dominant outing, Red Bull KTM’s Ryan Dungey, of Belle Plaine, Minn., took his fifth consecutive victory of the summer in front of the hometown crowd, sweeping the day’s pair of 450 Class motos. In the 250 Class, GEICO Honda’s Eli Tomac, of Cortez, Colo., took advantage of the misfortune experienced by points leader, and Monster Energy/Pro Circuit/Kawasaki rider, Blake Baggett, of Grand Terrace, Calif., to claim his third win of the season.

After coming out of the gate at the front portion of the field, Dungey settled into fifth place at the conclusion of the opening lap of the first 450 Class moto. As the KTM rider began to work his way forward, MotoConcepts Suzuki’s Mike Alessi, of Victorville, Calif., assumed the lead and opened a small gap over the field.

Dungey picked off one rider per lap and took over second place on Lap 3, and then set his sights on Alessi. Dungey gradually eliminated his deficit to Alessi and passed the Suzuki-mounted rider on Lap 6, quickly establishing an insurmountable advantage and taking the win.

MECHANICSVILLE, Md.  Southern Maryland’s Budds Creek MX Park hosted the fifth round of the Lucas Oil Pro Motocross Championship, sanctioned by AMA Pro Racing, on Saturday, as each of the series’ points leaders added to his respective championship advantage. Red Bull KTM’s Ryan Dungey, of Belle Plaine, Minn., raced to his third consecutive 450 Class win with a third straight 1-1 moto sweep. In the 250 Class, Monster Energy/Pro Circuit/Kawasaki’s Blake Baggett, of Grand Terrace, Calif., secured his second victory of the season thanks to a triumphant effort in the second moto.

In the opening 450 Class moto, Team Honda Muscle Milk’s Justin Brayton, of Ft. Dodge, Iowa, grabbed the holeshot, but Dungey wasted little time in making his move to the front. Once in the lead, Dungey extended his advantage over the field every lap, eventually winning by over 40 seconds.

In Moto 2, MotoConcepts Suzuki’s Mike Alessi, of Victorville, Calif., assumed the early lead and stayed out front for three laps before Dungey moved past. The KTM rider then pulled away from the field consistently en route to the checkered flag.

LAKEWOOD, Colo. – Picturesque Thunder Valley MX Park hosted the third round of the Lucas Oil Pro Motocross Championship, sanctioned by AMA Pro Racing, on Saturday, producing two new winners for the 2012 season at the Toyota Thunder Valley National. Following back-to-back runner-up finishes to start the season, Red Bull KTM’s Ryan Dungey, of Belle Plaine, Minn., emerged victorious, capturing a 1-1 moto sweep to give the Austrian brand its first overall victory in the 450 Class. In the 250 Class, GEICO Honda’s Justin Barcia, of Monroe, N.Y., ended a 27-race winless streak to capture his second career win.

In the opening moto of the 450 Class, James Stewart, of Haines City, Fla., worked his way from a third-place start to take over the lead on Lap 2. However, just two laps later, the Team Yoshimura Suzuki rider went down as he looked to open a gap on the field, failing to finish the moto and appearing to favor his hand.

With Stewart out of action, Dungey took over the lead on Lap 4 and went on to take an easy moto win, his first of the season, and put himself in position for the overall.

The effects of his first moto crash forced Stewart to sit out Moto 2 as well, losing the points lead with no points recorded. As the gate dropped, Dungey grabbed the holeshot, quickly pulled away, and dominated en route to securing the overall victory.

“I hate to win like that,” said Dungey, who has won three consecutive races at Thunder Valley. “James and I have pushed each other to new levels and although he won the first four motos (this season), it’s been good. Hopefully he heals up and comes back (next week). My game plan is always the same, to take it one race at a time. You can’t focus on the end result and we saw that today. I just do my own thing, put my best foot forward, and never underestimate anyone.”

WORTHAM, Texas  – Freestone Raceway was the site of the second round of the Lucas Oil Pro Motocross Championship, sanctioned by AMA Pro Racing, on Saturday with an afternoon full of fiercely-contested competition. Team Yoshimura Suzuki’s James Stewart, of Haines City, Fla., narrowly swept the day’s motos to claim his second consecutive overall victory in the 450 Class. In the 250 Class, GEICO Honda’s Eli Tomac also recorded a pair of moto wins to grab his second career overall victory.

Stewart capitalized on strong starts in the 450 Class, working his way into the lead prior to the conclusion of the opening lap in each moto. Behind him, Red Bull KTM’s Dungey, of Belle Plaine, Minn., asserted himself in both motos, setting his sights on passing Stewart for the lead multiple times.

However, despite being faster than his rival throughout a significant portion of each moto, Dungey was unable to find a way to get past Stewart. The duo was separated by mere bike lengths throughout the combined 34 laps of racing across both motos, but the lead position never changed hands. Regardless, the two former champions provided captivating competition that kept the fans cheering all afternoon long.

“I thought my day went good,” said Stewart, who’s 18th-career win ties him for fourth on the all-time wins list. “It was a tough one, but fun. I got two good starts, made quick passes, and set the tone with a good pace. Ryan rode really well, but I did my own (thing) out front. I knew he’d be there the whole time. I felt like we were even today and if he had gotten out front, he could have done the same thing.”

LAKEWOOD, Colo. – The scenic Thunder Valley MX Park welcomed a huge crowd on Saturday as the 2011 Lucas Oil AMA Pro Motocross Championship hosted its fifth round of the season. The Toyota Trucks Thunder Valley National was won by Rockstar/Makita Suzuki’s, of Belle Plaine, Minn., who took his first overall victory of the year in the 450 Class. Monster Energy/Pro Circuit/Kawasaki’s Blake Baggett, of Grand Terrace, Calif., raced to his third overall win in five rounds with a sweep of the day’s motos in the 250 Class.

Monster Energy Kawasaki’s Ryan Villopoto, of Poulsbo, Wash., started the day with a dominant victory in the opening 450 Class moto. Dungey followed in second while TwoTwo Motorsports/Bel-Ray Racing rider Chad Reed, of Australia, finished third, setting the stage for a three-way battle for the overall win.

In Moto 2, Reed grabbed the holeshot, with both Dungey and Villopoto closely in tow. Both Dungey and Reed engaged in battle for the lead through the first three laps, before Dungey made his move into the top spot. Villopoto got by Reed just one lap later and proceeded to challenge Dungey for first, and what would eventually be the overall win. The two paced one another, with nearly identical times for several laps, before Dungey eventually pulled away for the victory.

“It was good to come away with a win,” said Dungey. “We’ve been looking for one for a while this season. I never felt like anything was missing, we just needed to put it together. I try to go out and give it my all every weekend. It’s not a matter of aggression. You need to be there in the beginning, or the guys will get away from you.”

Despite tying Dungey in points for the day, Villopoto missed out on his second victory of the season by virtue of the second moto tiebreaker.

“The track was tough,” said Villopoto. “But that was the best second moto I’ve had all year. Ryan (Dungey) was riding well. He was strong on one side of the track and I was faster on the other. We played cat and mouse, but he gained some time on me at the end.”

Reed completed the podium in third (3-3), but still maintains the championship lead in the 450 Class standings.

“I was the third best guy (today),” said Reed. “I’m happy to be honest. This is a tough track for me and I just felt a little off today. I think you learn more on your off days when you get beat. And that’s what happened today. We need to make some improvements, and I think I know where we need to make those.”

As the gates dropped on Moto 1 of the 250 Class, Baggett positioned himself in the top five, and crossed the line in fourth place. From there, he worked his way through the field, and moved into the lead on Lap 7, before pulling away from his competitors. In the final moto, Baggett capitalized on a strong start, and moved into the lead prior to the completion of the opening lap. Once out front, he never looked back and now leads the division in overall wins.

“I didn’t think it was going to be my day after practice,” said Baggett. “The bike just never felt good. I went into the race open minded and once the laps wound down, I just kind of began to get more comfortable and kept it going from there.”

Baggett’s Monster Energy/Pro Circuit/Kawasaki teammate Dean Wilson, of Scotland, finished second (2-2), while GEICO Honda’s Eli Tomac, of Cortez, Colo., rounded out the podium in third at his hometown track (3-3). By virtue of his runner-up effort, Wilson moved into the 250 Class points lead.

“My day was really good,” said Wilson. “I got tight in the first moto, but still rode well. In the second moto, I just had a hard time getting around guys early. I felt great though. I just need to get up front a little faster. I’m pumped on points lead. I was bummed that I lost it. I just need to keep the ball rolling.”

The Motorcycle-Superstore.com Women’s Motocross Championship resumed its 2011 season at Thunder Valley, hosting its third of eight rounds this summer. DNA Shred Stix/Star Racing Yamaha’s Jessica Patterson, of Tallahassee, Fla., swept the day’s motos to garner her second win of the season, while American Honda’s Ashley Fiolek, of St. Augustine, Fla., finished second (2-2), and Lucas Oil/Troy Lee Designs Honda’s Tarah Gieger, of Puerto Rico, completed the podium in third (5-3).

The Lucas Oil AMA Pro Motocross Championship reaches the halfway point next weekend with Round 6 of the 2011 season. RedBud, in Buchanan, Mich., will host the Rockstar Energy RedBud National on Saturday, July 2, beginning at 1 p.m. EST.

Snowshoe, W. Va -FMF/Makita Suzuki’s Josh Strang claimed the $5,000 top prize at this year’s Motosport.com Snowshoe GNCC by taking a narrow victory over WMR Off-road/Clockwork/FMF/Planet Fitness KTM’s Nate Kanney after an exciting, race-long battle in what turned out to be an extremely difficult event.

Snowshoe GNCC is considered “America’s Toughest Race” and this year was tougher than usual after scattered showers turned the rooted and rocky mountain course into an extremely treacherous one. And due to the many mud holes and slippery climbs found along the trail, several riders held the lead at one point or another, as one rider would lead only to get stuck or fall and hand the spot over to someone else. In all, Am Pro Yamaha’s Paul Whibley, FMF/KTM Charlie Mullins, JG Racing/GEICO Powersports Honda’s Rory Mead, Am Pro Yamaha’s Thad DuVall and KTM rider Stu Baylor, along with Strang and Kanney, all held the lead somewhere during the three-hour race.

Heading into the fifth and final lap, the lead group consisted of Baylor, Mullins, Strang, and Kanney, however, Mullins and Baylor got stuck part way into the lap, leaving Kanney with the lead and Strang in second.

Near the end of the final lap, Strang got by Kanney in a mud hole and managed to stay out of trouble for the rest of the race. At the finish, Strang edged Kanney by just two seconds to take the win.

“I was just hoping to finish up front and I was happy to follow Nate, he’s had some good rides here the last few years,” said Strang. “If I could have followed him over the line I would have been happy, so to get in front of him there at the end and get the win was fantastic.”

Kanney, who was the 2010 Snowshoe winner, was hoping to capitalize on a late mistake by Strang, but the opportunity never presented itself.

“On the last lap, I knew Strang was there and I knew he was going to be strong and I didn’t really want to be leading at that point – it’s not necessarily good to be leading here on the last lap,” said Kanney. “So I thought if Strang passed me I was going to let him have it let him take all the risk. After he went around me we put the hammer down and we got through everything clean. He got really close to getting stuck in one place but he didn’t, and after that I never had a chance to catch him.”

With the win, Strang extended his lead in the 2011 Can-Am Grand National Cross Series to 11 points over Mullins, who ended the day in third.

“It was pretty challenging out there and I made a mistake on the next-to-last lap and lost a lot of time,” said Mullins. “I was able to charge back and catch Baylor, but by then Nate and Josh were gone. I’m pretty disappointed but I think this is the best I’ve ever ridden here, so I feel good about that.”

Fourth in the XC1 division went to Mead, a New Zealand native who just recently moved to the States to give the GNCC series a try. Meanwhile, fifth went to fellow Kiwi Paul Whibley, who threw his chain several times over the course of the race.

FMF/KTM’s Kailub Russell ran with the lead pack early, but eventually finished sixth ahead of factory Husaberg rider Nick Fahringer.

Cory Buttrick put his FMF/KTM into eighth, ahead DuVall and KTM rider Kenny Gilbert.

Each year the Snowshoe GNCC awards a generous overall purse, which this year was courtesy of St. Lawrence Radiology Group and Friends of Coal.

After challenging for the overall win, Stu Baylor ended the day third in the overall standings and he won the XC2 division, his fourth class win of the year.

“It was crazy out there,” said Baylor. “I just kept pushing and found myself in the overall on the last lap, and about miles from the end I made a mistake in a mud hole and my glove was covered in mud and I just couldn’t hold on and I just kept dropping back. But I knew I was winning my class and I just held on.”

After nearly winning the overall last year, WP/RidePG KTM rider Jesse Robinson settled for second in the XC2 division this year.

“Just making it through this race with your bike in one piece is a plus,” said Robinson. “There was nothing pretty about my ride, I just held on to the handle bars and took it to the finish.”

Rounding out the podium was Pennsylvania KTM rider Andrew DeLong, who struggled with suspension problems for most of the day.

KTM rider Zack Nolan was fourth, some 45 seconds behind DeLong, while JG Off-road/GEICO Powersports Honda’s Scotty Watkins was fifth, another 12 minutes back.

Zachery Smith was sixth on a KTM, with FAR Husqvarna’s Morgan Moss nailing down the seventh position.

Justin Williamson (KTM), AJ Stewart (Yam) and Peter Weiss (Yam) rounded out the top 10.

In the A.M. race, six-time National Hare Scrambles Champ Jason Raines (Yam) battled with Brandon Higgins for most of the race, but came on strong to take the overall and Sportsman A class wins.

Randall Riggs (Yam) topped David Fallas (KTM) and Adam Cable (Yam) to win the Masters A (50+) class, while Maria Forsberg (KTM) beat out Nina Cobb (Hon) and Dawn Silvia (KTM) to take the Women’s class win.

In the Youth race, Gary Myers (Yam) edged Anthony Stone (KTM) to win the overall and the Super Mini (14-15) division.

Austin Lee (KTM) was third overall and first in the Super Mini (12-13) class.

The 2011 Can-Am Grand National Cross Country Series heads to Millfield, Ohio for the Wiseco John Penton GNCC on July 9 & 10. ATV racing will take place on Saturday, followed by bike racing on Sunday. For more information, please visit www.gnccracing.com.

Factory FMF/KTM Team riders Russell Bobbitt and Charlie Mullins topped the podium after an all day battle at the sixth round of the AMA National Enduro Series.

From the first test to the final test Bobbitt and Mullins ran a tight race. Both riders tied for the fast time in the first test. In the second section Mullins, the winner of last year’s Upton Enduro, came out with a slight advantage while Bobbitt and Thad Duvall rallied for second fastest time. Mullins continued his win streak into the third test where he again took the section win and was up 25 seconds on Bobbitt heading to the fourth.

As the two riders prepped for the fourth test, Bobbitt stepped up his game. He won the fourth test by 2 seconds over Mullins to close his gap to 23 seconds. He knew he had a large deficit to overcome so he turned up the heat in the fifth section to tie Duvall for the fast time. Heading into the final section, Mullins still had 11 seconds on Bobbitt. The section was said to be a smooth and fast section but it was one of the longer tests at 9.5 miles in length which meant anything could happen.

Mullins came into the check first and seemed to turn a pretty decent time. It wasn’t long after when fans heard the distinct sound of Bobbitt’s 250 XC two-stroke screaming through the trees. Bobbitt crossed the line in a time 24 seconds faster than Mullins. His last section win gave him the overall for the day while Mullins would end up 2nd after a very close battle.

With three section wins a piece it was a remarkable day for the FMF/KTM Team. The third rider of the FMF/KTM Team, Cory Buttrick, struggled with a stomach virus throughout the day but still pulled off a decent ride with a 4th place finish behind the 3rd place of Thad Duvall.

With six rounds in the books, Bobbitt regains the points lead over Mullins holding a 2 point lead. “It feels great to get a win here and regain the points lead. I had some issues with my wrist at the last round but if felt fine all day today. I’m really looking forward to the rest of the series,” stated Bobbitt.

Overall Series Points:

1)     Russell Bobbitt – 152

2)     Charlie Mullins – 150

3)     Cory Buttrick – 124

4)     Nick Fahringer – 108

5)     Mike Lafferty – 88
