Renthal Riders Dominate Motocross and Offroad Standings As We Hit Halfway Mark of the Season.
In the AMA Pro Motocross series we've seen the consistency of TwoTwo Motorsport's Chad Reed pay off as he leads the points over Monster Energy Kawasaki's Ryan Villopoto, who has had the speed to win on any weekend but just hasn't had the consistency of Reed. In the Lites class, it's been all about the dominating performance of the Monster Energy Pro Circuit Kawasaki team with their riders handing over the red plate like a hot potato after each round. Dean Wilson has managed to keep the points lead heading into the off weekend over Blake "El Chupacabra" Baggett who sits 2nd in points and their teammate Tyla Rattray sitting 3rd. In the WMX series, Ashley Fiolek ripped off two massive holeshots this past weekend at Red Budd to go 1-1 for the overall and extend her points lead over 2nd place.
In the FIM World Motocross series we have seen the Red Bull Teka KTM team consistently up front and new red plate holder Antonio Cairoli working his way back into the top spot of the series standings after an impressive win at the Swedish round. Rockstar Energy Suzuki's Clement Desalle sits 2nd in points as the series heads to Germany this weekend. Speaking of Germany, this weekend's race will see hometown kid Ken Roczen looking to expand his points lead in the MX2 class over his Red Bull Teka KTM teammate Jeffrey Herlings.
North of the border in the Monster Energy Canadian Motocross nationals, after 4 of 9 rounds have been completed, it has been total domination by the Yamaha Red Bull Blackfoot Fox Racing squad of Colton Facciotti and Dusty Klatt in the MX1 class with both riders sitting 1-2 in the points respectively. In the MX2 class it's more of the same with Blackfoot's Tyler Medaglia holding a healthy points leads over his nearest rival.
Switching to offroad racing, in the Can-am GNCC series it's been a close battle between FMF Makita Suzuki's Josh Strang and FMF KTM's Charlie Mullins after 8 rounds. The two have battled non-stop thus far and sit atop the Leaderboard heading into this weekend's round in Ohio.
In the WORCS series, FMF KTM's Kurt Caselli has been the most consistent up front, and with the most wins (2) leads Monster Energy Kawasaki's Taylor Robert by comfortable margin in the Pro 1 class. The WORCS series is currently on "Summer Break" and will resume racing in late August in Washington state.
