2021 THUNDER VALLEY NATIONAL PRE-RACE REPORT: LAWRENCE/MARTIN TO SHARE RED PLATE

2021 THUNDER VALLEY PRE-RACE REPORT: JETT LAWRENCE & JEREMY MARTIN TO SHARE RED PLATE AT COLORADO

The exciting 2021 Pro Motocross season makes its way to the hills of Colorado for the second round of the season. Anticipation for upcoming battles is high as the first round proved to have close racing in both classes. We saw breakout performances from 17-year-old Jett Lawrence in the 250 class as well as Dylan Ferrandis in the 450 class. What makes the racing even more exciting is the fact that any number of the 450 riders in the top 15 have the capability of winning a moto this season, and possibly the championship. Scroll down below to see what you need to know before the second round of the 2021 season.

DYLAN FERRANDIS IN THE 450 POINTS LEAD

The Frenchman may have won the 250 championship last year, but he already has his eyes set on the 450 one this year.

Dylan Ferrandis continues his outdoors momentum from last year’s 250 National Championship victory with an opening round overall win. The battles were close in the first moto at Fox Raceway between himself and Chase Sexton and despite a photo finish, he would win the first moto. Now, Dylan Ferrandis sits first in the points lead with 45 points with his teammate Aaron Plessinger and HRC Honda rider Ken Roczen tied for second place.

JETT LAWRENCE & JEREMY MARTIN BOTH HOLD THE RED PLATE

It’s a tie between a 250 vet and a 250 sophomore. 

The 250 class was full of exciting action at Fox Raceway with a handful of surprises. For one, we had the anticipation that certain riders would have done a little bit better than how they performed. But similar to this year’s 450 class, the 250 class also has quite the number of talented riders amongst the pack. The motos were dominated by former teammates, Jett Lawrence and Jeremy Martin, with Jett taking the overall. However, the two riders both swapped first and second positions in the Motos, giving them the same amount of points at the end of the day. As we head to Thunder Valley, both riders will be sporting red plates.

INJURY REPORT: CAMERON MCADOO OUT FOR SEASON

Unfortunately, Cameron McAdoo suffered a crash in the second moto at Fox Raceway resulting in a pulled ACL and fractured tibia. There is no timeline as to when we’ll see the exciting 250 rider back but we know that these kind of injuries take some time to heal after getting surgery. Heal up Cameron!
