The second round of the 2018 Lucas Oil Pro Motocross Championship at Glen Helen, arguably the world’s mecca of motocross, definitely gave the fans something to cheer for. In the first moto of the premier class, Honda HRC’s Ken Roczen led the majority of the race, but ultimately succumbed to the hounding Eli Tomac. For once, since 2016, spectators saw the two fan favorites duke it out, and Roczen proved that he isn’t done racing yet! In more recent outings, Kenny has been reluctant to put up much of a fight (understandably so, considering his recent injuries) and has more so only tried to survive. But this time around, Roczen was competitive and on the gas with a clear track ahead of him. Tomac ultimately went 1-1 and Roczen 3-8 for first and fifth overall finishes, respectively.
The 250 class also brought race fans excitement, with all the top guys dicing it up and swapping positions with each other, but Aaron Plessinger clearly looked the most comfortable out there, taking home 1-1 finishes and the overall. Zach Osborne showed plenty of fight, but the defending champion just didn’t have the same flow Aaron did that day. The two now share the points lead. The season is young and there are a lot of talented and hungry riders, all of which have equal chances of landing on the podium, so it’s still early to start making predictions. Let’s see what happens this weekend in Colorado.
