MXA WEEKEND NEWS ROUND-UP: ALL ABOARD THE TOMAC TRAIN

10 MINOR POINTS HEADING INTO NEW YORK ON SATURDAY

Eli Tomac leads the 2017 AMA Supercross series by 3 points with two races left.

(1) Three points is nothing in the title chase. It is wrong to assume that the Championship is over. While Tomac’s riding has been stellar, let’s not forget that Eli dodged a big bullet in Seattle when he went end-over-end and managed to not get hurt or to break a lever. This Championship has more drama left.

(2) With two races to go (New York and Las Vegas), Marvin Musquin is the only rider, other than Tomac and Dungey, to not be mathematically eliminated from the title chase. However, Marvin is only one little point short of having to settle for third place overall. Marvin is 49 points behind Eli Tomac with 50 points left to earn.

Davi Millsaps (above) and Blake Baggett are in a team skirmish for top dog at Rocky Mountain KTM.

(3) The racing has been great in 2017. First with Roczen, then with Dungey and now with Tomac, but it has also been exciting back behind the big names. The Rocky Mountain ATV/MX guys, Blake Baggett and Davi Millsaps, are tied at 190 point each after 15 races. They are dueling over sixth place in the standings and have finished within three places of each other 9 times out of 15 races. If Cole Seely, who is 21 points ahead of the duo,  has more issues with his leg in the next two rounds, one of them has a chance of making the top five in overall points.

Dean Wilson (15) started the year as a privateer on a Yamaha, but has ridden into the top ten on his fill-in Husky ride.

(4) Farther back behind Baggett and Millsaps, come Chad Reed and Dean Wilson. They are tied for 9th in points at 158 points each. They both have averaged 10.5 place finishes in 2017 (and are only 9 points behind Broc Tickle in 8th place). Statistically, Chad has the higher placing this season, with one podium (Phoenix) and one other top five (Toronto), but he has two single point races (Anaheim 1 and Detroit, where he was penalized for ignoring the blue flags). On the other hand, Dean only has one top five, but has always been higher than 13th in every race and in the top ten six times. With Broc Tickle, who is 9 points ahead of them in 8th place, injured in a practie crash this week and not coming back to Supercross this year, Reed and Wilson are racing for 8th over the next two races.

Malcolm Stewart is fast on his Suzuki RM-Z450, but can’t close the deal.

(5) There is no doubt that Malcolm Stewart has the speed to run up front, but not the fitness to keep the pace or the ability to keep off the ground. Malcolm has only scored two top ten finishes this season and is currently 15th in the 450 standings (although he did skip the first couple races while getting his Ride365 deal put together).

Marvin Musquin is one of only 9 riders to have scored points in every race so far in 2017.

(6) Only nine 450 riders have scored points in all 15 races so far. They are Tomac, Dungey, Musquin, Baggett, Tickle, Reed, Wilson, Weimer and Friese. But, Broc Tickle broke his wrist at the Suzuki test track and will miss both New York and Las Vegas, so make that “Only eight riders” from New York on.

(7) 42 different riders made the 450 main events in the last 15 races (the maximum number of riders who could have made mains, if it was different riders every week in the top 20, would be 300. As the season has worn down, the rider turnouts have dwindled. Salt Lake City only had 45 riders signed up for the 450 class and Seattle only had 39.

(8) Eli Tomac has led 162 laps to Ryan Dungey’s 87, Marvin Musquin’s 49 and Ken Roczen’s 37. Only two other riders have led any laps (Blake Baggett 2 and Davi Millsaps 2).

The former king of the starts has been shutout in 2017. In fact his average start is around 13th place.

(9) There is no holeshot king in the 450 class for 2017. Ryan Dungey leads the field with 3 holeshots, but Eli Tomac, Blake Bagget and Justin Bogle have 2 each, while Ken Roczen, Vince Frieses, Cooper Webb, Davi Millsaps and Marvin Musquin have one apiece. Mike Alessi, the former kings had no holeshots in the first 15 races and on average started in 13th place.

Ryan Dungey’s average finishes are better than Eli Tomac’s, but Eli has racked up the wins to offset his poor start in the first few rounds.

(10) The rider with the best average race finish so far in 2017 is…wait for it…Ryan Dungey. On average, Ryan has finished in 2.5 place, while Eli Tomac has finished 3.1. Of 42 riders who made a main event in 2017, only five riders averaged a top five start. They are Ryan Dungey (2.5), Eli Tomac (3.1), Marvin Musquin (4.9), Cole Seely (5.2) and Jason Anderson (5.7).

KIARA FONTANESI AND VALKENSWAARD

Kiara Fontanesi.

Women racers have earned points in MXGP in the past, but typically in places where the number of entrants is so low that almost anyone who finishes gets a handful of GP points, most notably in Brazil with Marianna Balbi. And for some reason, Youthstream promotes the entry of women at fly-away races like Qatar and different Muslim countries in the Southeast Asia. So, it was with some interest that multi-time WMX World Champion Kiara Fontanesi signed up to race last week’s Valkenswaard GP in Holland. This was not a small entrant fly-away race. There were 40 riders entered in the 250 GP and Valkenswaard is an extremely brutal track to ride (not pure sand, but littered with giant rollers). Fontanesi qualifed 40th fastest, but since Youthstream’s qualifying is for gate pick only, she was in no danger of not qualifying. However, Kiara was 12.5 second off the pace of fast qualifier Jorge Prado.

In the first moto she finished 34th (3 laps down to moto winner Pauls Jonass). It should be noted that 19 riders out of the 40 were lapped. Kiara’s best lap on the much rougher first-moto track was a 2:08. That was 12 seconds slower than her qualifying time and 17 seconds slower than Paul Jonass’ best lap of 1:51. For the second moto Kiara improved to 32nd overall and was only two laps down. Her best lap time dropped 2 seconds to a 2:06, which was only 14 seconds off of Pauls Jonass’ best second moto lap time—which showed a significant improvement over the first moto.

Perhaps if she had picked a less demanding track, with fewer 250 entrants, she might have looked better in the results, but she deserves praise for not just putting herself out there, but choosing a tough track to do it at.

DEBBI TAMIETTI’S PHOTO OF THE WEEK

Former AMA National Pro Robert Reisinger (96) and Australian Dan Alamangos (35) appear to be heading for a meeting of the minds (and metal). Luckily this is an optical illusion caused by the foreshortening of Debbi’s long lens. Robert is about to turn into left-hand downhil turn, while Dan is on a section of track above Reisinger’s.
