2018 HIGH POINT MOTOCROSS | COMPLETE COVERAGE

After a weekend off, the 2018 Lucas Oil Pro Motocross Championship returned racing at High Point, so of course, Speed Trap is back for another week as well! During the morning’s 450 class practice sessions, we hit the hills and posted up alongside one of High Point’s many uphill jumps, particularly the large triple just before the finish line. Between the rutted off-camber corner at the bottom and the small jump leading into the run-up, we were curious to know just how fast a racer has to be going to clear the triple at the top of the hill. Luckily, we had our ultra-accurate Bushnell radar gun on hand. The speeds surprised us, and they might just surprise you too.
