The Others...Glen Helen

Although the Lucas Oil Pro Motocross Championships are only on Round Two, the series is already reeking havoc on a few championship contenders. The high speed hills of Glen Helen would be the backdrop to a maybe unexpected outcome.


Green struggle. From the Pro Circuit Kawasaki 250 team to the Factory rig of Kawasaki, it was a tough day to be on a green bike. Between crashes, brake issues and bikes just stopping, the points chases in both the 250 and 450 classes would receive a shake up.

After setting the fastest qualifying times, Eli Tomac and Adam Cianciarulo would fail to even make the podium. In fact, there wouldn't be a Kawasaki rider in the podium in either class.

Zach Osborne's 4-2 moto score would be good enough for the 250 overall. Geico Honda's Jeremy Martin and Star Yamaha rider, Dylan Ferrandis would each grab their first moto wins of the season and finsh second and third overall respectively.

Over in the 450 class, the Euro brands of KTM and Husqvarna would take the top four spots. Marvin Musquin's 1-3 would best Jason Anderson's 5-1. Blake Baggett put in a solid second moto that'd give him the final podium spot on the day.

Hailing from Thousand Oaks, California Dylan Epstein would crack the top 20 in moto one. The number 90 Kawasaki would then come out and put in a career best ride in moto two. He'd finish the day 16th overall after going 18-12 on the day.

Elevation will play a factor and test not just bike horsepower but a riders physical fitness as round three heads to Lakewood, Colorado.
