The Lucas Oil Motocross Championship is enjoying a small break, so we thought we’d stop by the X Games this weekend. But that wasn’t the only moto this weekend; the Belgian GP hosted a new winner in MX2, and an American topped the Australian MX National Championship…
JDR Motorsports/Motorex/KTM rider PJ Larsen claimed the 2010 Rockstar Energy Australian MX Nationals title in the Pro Lites category one round early during Coolum’s mega double-header season finale in Queensland. Larsen’s top finishing scores throughout the season gave him an 84 point advantage heading to the final round.
Travis Pastrana was, yet again, the star of X Games. Not only did he win gold in Freestyle and Speed & Style, he also threw a double backflip for crowd in the LA Coliseum after clinching gold in FMX. We are sure you all noticed TP199's gear, too. Clearly, he and Thor have parted ways, but will we see him in Fox, or will he continue to cover logos with DC badges? Time will tell.
Ashley Fiolek took home the win in Super X for the second year in a row. She is now tied with Lil' Hanny for consecutive Super X wins.
Jessica Patterson had a rough day in the Coliseum. On her way to reeling in Ashley Fiolek in the main, JP crashed on the big double. It was a violent wreck, but she did eventually stand on her own will.
Josh Hansen's win streak came to an end this year at X. After dominating his qualifier and leading much of the main, Hansen faded, and Muscle Milk/JGR's Josh Grant and Justin Brayton passed him to take gold and silver.
