Antony Bourdon scored a popular surprise win in Sunday’s first 250 race aboard his Husqvarna, leading Americans Owen and McAdoo home. Owen did everything he could to find his way around the Frenchman, who also turned in his best race of the night on Saturday in the first four-minute race of the evening. Had the race been longer, Owen and McAdoo would have surely found their way past.

Race Two

Owen returned with a vengeance in the second race, as he holeshot and led every inch of the race with a comfortable margin over McAdoo, who battled with his teammate for the weekend, Adrien Escoffier throughout the sprint race before coming out on top with firm control of second at the finish line.

Race Three

Last year’s Prince of Paris, Thomas Do, caught fire in the last 250 race of the weekend and scored a massively popular win, passing all of the front-runners en route to the victory. While the race looked like an Owen runaway, there was no denying Do as he had the entire crowd behind him as he worked his way to the point position. Owen seemed to settle for a safe second and the championship, while McAdoo put on an amazing charge back through the pack after an early race crash in the flat corner after the center double. McAdoo’s charge to fifth earned him the runner-up position in the overall standings.

Race One

Rockstar Energy Husqvarna’s Zach Osborne snared the holeshot in the first 450 race of the night and never relinquished the lead, though MCR Honda’s Vince Friese started close behind him and stayed within striking distance the entire way. for Friese, it was a great performance that would help him eventually earn fourth overall in the final standings. Anderson started poorly but worked up to third at the finish of the four-minute sprint race.

450 Race Two

MCR Honda’s Justin Brayton holeshot the second moto and looked great up front until the effects of his bronchitis began to catch up to him. Anderson was first to work his way past, followed by Osborne. At the finish, the Husky teammates crossed the line in close formation. It’s pretty clear that Osborne will be a force to be reckoned with in the 450 division in 2019. Brayton held on to third.

Race Three

The final race of the weekend looked to be a repeat of the second main, as Anderson took control early on and had Osborne close in tow. A rear flat tire slowed the three-time 250 champ in the closing stages, however, and he circulated the track slowly and tried to salvage as many points as he could. Ferrandis suffered a mediocre start aboard his Alex Campbell-tuned YZ450F but sliced through the pack with great precision. Once Ferrandis worked into third, the crowd went nuts when he reeled in the ailing Osborne and took over the runner-up position. At the checkered flag, Anderson enjoyed a massive lead and lapped up into the top five. Ferrandis was second at the line and second in the final standings, barely edging out Osborne for the spot by one point. Osborne crossed the finish line in 12th.
