Race Report:
2007 Ford Mammoth Motocross
250 Pro, Intermediate, & Junior

The final day of racing at the 2007 Mammoth Motocross saw Ryan Hughes take the win in the 250 Pro Main, while Ben LaMay was the champion in the Intermediate class, and Travis Foos won in the Junior division.

250 PRO MAIN

Wil Hahn and Kevin Rookstool were axle-to-axle as the pack rocketed down the big downhill to start Sunday’s 250 Pro Main. Not far behind the two lead dogs were Ryan Hughes, Nico Izzi, and Bobby Garrison. Right from the start the race was shaping up as one of the best we’ve watched in a long time.

By the end of lap number one Rookstool held the lead and Hughes had moved into second, followed by Hahn, Izzi, and Garrison. Rookstool did his best to hold off Ryno, and for a few laps it looked like he might have a chance to keep him at bay, but on about lap three Hughes took the inside line in the big 180 degree left-hander before the finish line to close the gap, and on the following lap Ryno overtook the lead. Rookstool, however, didn’t give up easily; staying within reach of Hughes and passing him back briefly at one point. But by the next lap Ryno held a commanding lead, and wouldn’t face any other serious challenges.

The race, however, was far from over, as the rest of the podium was still to be decided. Rookstool had fallen back to third place behind Hahn in second, and Izzi was just behind them in fourth. Garrison—who was looking very strong—fell after the finish line tabletop and after struggling to refire his bike, dropped further back in the pack and Ironman would eventually have to settle for 17th.

At one point Izzi had moved past Rookstool into third place, but a crash on the big downhill pushed him back to an eventual fifth place finish. That left Rookstool and Hahn to battle it out for second place, and when it was over, Rookstool would be the one to grab the runner-up position.
