Blake Baggett Atlanta SX 2020

Tough Night for Baggett at Atlanta SX | Race Report

Payson, UT (Mar.2, 2020) – Atlanta, Georgia was the backdrop this past Saturday night as Team Rocky Mountain ATV/MC-KTM-WP traveled to Mercedes Benz Stadium for round nine of the 2020 Monster Energy Supercross Series. It proved to be a tough night for the team, as rider Blake Baggett would not have the race he was hoping for.

Rider Reports:

Blake Baggett took the gate drop in 450 heat two and had his work cut out for him after getting pinched in the first turn, rounding the first lap outside the top ten. He kept the momentum forward moving into 8th place by mid race and put in a last lap charge to take over 7th place at the checkered flag. In the main event, Blake launched out of the gate and rounded the first turn in 5th place. He soon found himself in a battle between Dean Wilson, Eli Tomac. And Jason Anderson. Blake looked to be moving forward until a misguided pass attempt from Eli Tomac would take both riders down. This would end Blake’s race, as he was forced to stop in the mechanic’s area to repair his bent-up bike. Showing heart, he did return to the race to finish the night.

“A shame my race was taken away like that. I felt good tonight and my speed was there. It’s unfortunate how things ended here as we had a good shot at a top three. The main thing is we leave here healthy, focused on Daytona next weekend and a podium.”
