Payson, UT (Oct.4, 2020) –Team Rocky Mountain ATV/MC-KTM-WPS visited the high altitude of Thunder Valley in Lakewood, CO for round eight of the 2020 Pro Motocross National Series. Team rider Justin Bogle put in his best race of the season, ending the day with a well-deserved top ten finish.
Blake Baggett had the Thunder Valley track dialed during morning practice, posting the 2nd fastest time of the day. He brought that confidence into moto one, as he would get a good launch off the gate, sneak around the inside of turn one and slotted inside top five. Blake found himself in a battle with Justin Barcia and Eli Tomac early on before sliding back to 6th place. He kept the pace and hitting his marks crossed the finish line in 8thplace at the checkered flag. Unfortunately, he didn’t line up for the second moto due to an issue he has been dealing with two of his fingers that he severely jammed about lap two of the first moto. Both swelled up to point of just not being able to hold on for second moto. He is getting it checked out, adjusted, and looks to finish off the season this weekend at Pala in a tight back and forth battle for the top 5 championship points overall.
Justin Bogle felt loose and ready as he timed a perfect gate in moto one and let his Dunlop tires dig for traction up the start straight to round the first turn inside the top ten. Justin rode with tenacity, as he tough inside the top ten for the first half of the race. He would slide back a few spots, crossing the finish line in 12th place at the checkered flag. Justin put his KTM inside the top ten at the start of the second moto, pushing his way to 7thplace at the end of lap one. Riding one of the best motos of his season, Justin found himself in a battle with Justin Barcia early in the race. The moto came together for the Fly Racing supported rider and he took 9th at the checkered flag, earning 9th overall for the day.
“Today was a good day. I was in the groove all day and feeling really fast on the bike. We have been working hard and it feels good to put in two solid motos like that to earn a top ten for the weekend. I’m ready to end the season strong with another top ten ride next weekend at Pala.”Justin Bogle
