Ryan Dungey.

After a three-week break, the 2010 Lucas Oil AMA Pro Motocross Championship returned to action for Round 9 on Saturday with the Rockstar Energy Unadilla National from Unadilla Valley Sports Center. After four motos, Rockstar/Makita Suzuki’s Ryan Dungey took his eighth consecutive 450 Class win while Geico Powersports Honda’s Trey Canard grabbed his fourth straight 250 Class victory.

450 CLASS:

After grabbing the holeshot in the first premier class moto, Dungey never looked back, continually extending his advantage over the field to the checkered flag. In Moto two, the rookie worked his way into the lead after a top five start, engaging in a great battle with teammate and World Motocross Championship contender Clement Desalle to secure the moto sweep in the late stages.

“I got a good start in Moto one and put myself in position to lead laps and take the win,” said Dungey, who can wrap up the title at the next round. “I wasn’t thinking of the overall (in Moto 2). I just race to win every time out. Clement Desalle surprised me. It’s not easy to come over to the states and do well. It was good for him and good for us to have a competitive moto.”

Desalle, riding for Rockstar/Teka Suzuki in a guest appearance in the U.S., finished second (2-2) while Geico Powersports Honda’s Brett Metcalfe rounded out the overall podium (5-3) that featured riders from three different continents. In his long-awaited return to American motocross, San Manuel Yamaha’s James Stewart finished 11th overall (3-35).

Dungey now holds a 111-point advantage heading into an off-week and sits just one win away from tying Ricky Carmichael for the most wins ever by a rookie.

250 CLASS

Since claiming his first overall victory last month, Trey Canard has continued to win, capturing the overall for the fourth consecutive round. A patient effort in moto one helped Canard pass his teammate Justin Barcia late to take the opening victory. In moto two, Canard sprinted out to an early lead, holding on until the last lap before Monster Energy/Pro Circuit/Kawasaki’s Christophe Pourcel made the winning pass. He settled for second in the moto to secure the overall win.

“I saw Pourcel down in the first moto and I was surprised,” said Canard. “Sometimes it happens and I just tried to do my best to take advantage. To walk out of here with a 16-point deficit instead of 38 feels great. In the second moto I made some mistakes and Pourcel was able to catch me but I knew I had the overall.”

Barcia finished second overall (3-5) with Monster Energy/Pro Circuit/Kawasaki’s Dean Wilson in third (6-3). After a crash resulted in a DNF for the first moto, Pourcel rebounded to finish seventh (38-1). Pourcel’s advantage over Canard sits at 16 points.

After a week off, the 2010 Lucas Oil AMA Pro Motocross Championship resumes for Round 10 and the Rockstar Energy Southwick National from Moto-X 338 in Southwick, Mass., on Saturday, August 28.
