2018 THUNDER VALLEY NATIONAL | 450 OVERALL RACE RESULTS (UPDATED)

450 moto one was tricky here in Thunder Valley. The race was red flagged due to Kyle Chisholm crashing very hard in the opening laps. Justin Barcia and Eli Tomac had the lead and were looking to battle it out. But after the gate dropped for the second time after the red flag restart, it was all about Ken Roczen. Ken jumped to the early lead, and had 20 minutes left to go. Eventually, Eli stole the lead and left Ken off the top step.

In 450 moto two it was the same story. Ken Roczen once again jumped to the lead leaving Tomac behind. But once time kicked in, Tomac made his mark.

Eli TomacThe reigning champion Eli Tomac has been on a roll this season. So far we are six motos in and he has won every single one of them. Impressive right? He went 1-1 in his home state today, and clinched the overall.

Ken RoczenKen Roczen got the fans on their feet with his 2-2 finish. In the beginning of 450 moto two, he really showed that he was capable of beating Tomac. Will it happen? We’re positive it will. He rode incredible.

Blake Baggett was not far off the pace either. He went 3-3 for a third overall of course. Blake kept his cards close, and still had more to give toward the end.

MORNING QUALIFYING 

Eli Tomac takes charge in at his home race in Thunder Valley.

The 2018 Pro Motocross series comes to Thunder Valley, Colorado for round 3 of the campaign. A lot of things have been shaken up in the 450 series this week–with Jason Anderson injuring himself at Glen Helen earlier this week. That leaves the door open for more riders to jump to the podium. Thus far, Eli Tomac has a perfect season going for him. Can he join the perfect season club? Not if Honda’s Ken Roczen or Marvin Musquin have anything to say about it. But before we get ahead of ourselves–here’s how qualifying panned out in Thunder Vally.

 The Hometown boy of Eli Tomac dominated the first and second qualifying sessions. So far he’s in the midst of accomplishing a perfect season. Can he keep it up?

Ken RoczenKen Roczen put together a solid showing in the second qualifying session. Its been a while since we’ve seen the German rider up front since his injury, so we are very excited to see what he can do.

And in third we have the one and only, Justin Barcia. “Bam Bam” knows what he needs to do to be up front, and we think he will do just that today.
