3rd Rd. Pro Motocross 2016 – Thunder Valley, CO (USA)





Saturday was a rollercoaster day for the Red Bull KTM Factory Racing team at Round 3 of the AMA Pro Motocross Championship in Lakewood, Colorado.


Ryan Dungey finished 2nd overall with 2-4 moto scores, while teammate Marvin Musquin, bounced back from a tough Moto 1 to finish 5th place in Moto 2.
 


Moto 1



In Moto 1, Ryan Dungey got off to a decent start aboard his KTM 450 SX-F FACTORY EDITION, where he tucked into the 3rd place position behind Jason Anderson on lap one.


By lap three Dungey had made his way around Anderson for 2nd, where he went to work on catching Ken Roczen for the lead position. Dungey maintained his position for the remainder of the race, where he finished 2nd.


Marvin Musquin didn’t get off to a great start, but the Frenchman immediately began pushing hard on the opening lap.


However, Musquin mistakenly went off the track and became entangled in a banner, thus losing substantial time. After remounting, Musquin would crash again, causing him to ultimately 37th in Moto 1.




Moto 2


In Moto 2, Dungey grabbed another good start and made his way into the lead battle on the opening lap.


While making an attempt to pass into the lead, Dungey got caught in a rut and went down, sending him all the way back to 19th place heading into lap two.


Dungey quickly recollected himself and made a charge toward the front, catching his teammate Musquin in the 7th place position by lap five.


From there, the Red Bull KTM Factory Racing duo pushed their way into the top five, where Dungey ultimately finished 4th and Musquin in 5th.


“The ruts are really tough in Colorado, I was just trying to focus on good lines and making them stick. In the second moto I was trying to make a pass for the lead and my front end caught a little rut on the hip jump and it kicked and sent me in the air,” Dungey said.


“Trying to rebound from that, thankfully we could get up and make a charge to pass as many guys as we could and salvage 2nd overall for the day.”


Dungey’s 2-4 moto scores were good enough to capture 2nd overall for the day, where he holds 2nd place in the 450 Class Championship standings.


Despite a tough experience in Moto 1, Musquin rebounded well to finish a solid 5th place in Moto 2, his best of the season.


“The first moto didn’t go as planned so I knew I had to regroup in the second moto,” Musquin said. “I had a good start even though I started way outside.


The first few laps were slow but as soon as Ryan got around me after his crash, I wanted to follow him and get good lines and good flow.


I was following him just like practice and that was good for the confidence. It was my first time in the top five in the 450 Class and that’s the goal every week.”


With 37-5 moto scores, Musquin ended up with 14th overall for the day, where he now sits 8th in the 450 Class Championship standings.



Troy Lee Designs Red Bull KTM’s Shane McElrath breaks into top 10


The Troy Lee Designs Red Bull KTM team took on the altitude of the Denver area at Thunder Valley Motocross Park, with Shane McElrath leading the way with a result inside the top 10.


Teammate Mitchell Oldenburg started the day well but had to work his way through the pack in Moto 2 scoring 16th on the day. Jessy Nelson finished just behind him in 17th with a 13-34 result.


After collecting 12th in Moto 1, McElrath put his KTM 250 SX-F FACTORY EDITION near the front of the pack at the start of Moto 2. He rode the rough track as hard as he could, eventually crossing the finish line in seventh for eighth overall.
 

“This track is definitely challenging,” said McElrath. “Not only are we at altitude, the track has a lot of sharp edges and deep ruts, so you have to be on it for the whole moto.”


Oldenburg started the day with a great ride in Moto 1 where he scored inside the top 10 in ninth. He had a good gate pick in Moto 2, but on the start was hit and went down.


 It took a while for him to regroup, but would eventually make it all the way up to 25th. His 9-25 score was good enough for 16th overall.


Although he was unable to match his podium finish from last week, Nelson started the day with a solid ride in Moto 1. He came from behind, outside the top 10, to finish 13th.


He was looking to better that score in the second moto, but was forced to settle with 34th and 18th overall.


Alex Frye’s day was over before it began after suffering a season-ending injury during practice leading into the weekend’s race. He’ll be cheering on his teammates from the sidelines while he heals up over the rest of the season.
 

The riders will get a weekend off before returning for Round 4 of the Lucas Oil Pro Motocross Championship at High Point Raceway in Mt. Morris, Pennsylvania on June 18.
