The Others...Unadilla.

It's crunch time and statements were made at round 10 of the Lucas Oil Pro Motocross Championships. A tradition and staple on the series made championships more interesting as  motocross took over New York at Una "f@$&in" Dilla.

First things first. Team USA for the Motocross of Nations was announced. America will be represented by Justin Barcia, Cooper Webb and Jeremy Martin. Personally I like Webb on the team. I'd like to see Ryan Dungey and Trey Canard join him, but also respect Dungey taking the break and understand Trey missing most the season with injury. Go USA. This team is still pretty solid.

The 250 class at Unadilla saw Pro Circuit Kawasaki get their first win of the season as Joey Savatgy's 2-2 scores were good enough for the overall. Red Bull KTM rider Marvin Musquin rebounded from moto 1 mistakes that had him finish 4th to take the 2nd moto win and 2nd overall. Star Yamaha's Jeremy Martin did almost just the opposite going 1-5 for 3rd overall. Martin lost very valuable points to Musquin and has just a 2 point lead going into the remaining 2 rounds.

The 450 class is as good as over with Red Bull KTM's Ryan Dungey going 1-1 on the day and extending his points lead to 79 over JGR Yamaha rider Justin Barcia. Barcia went 2-4, good enough for 2nd overall. Trey Canard would put his Honda on the box with 3rd overall. Inconsistency kept RCH Suzuki rider Ken Roczen, who had a 2nd place moto 2 finish and Husqvarna's Christophe Pourcel who took 3rd in moto 2 off the podium. 

My privateer of the week is maybe a little favoritism. Michigan's Marshal Weltin just graduated from Loretta Lynn's and made his debut in the 250 class. He qualified 28th on his Yamaha and had some issues in the motos going 24-36 for 30th overall. A solid day of learning and big things to come. Congrats Marshal.
