Lee Witt won the 450 Pro class and remained the only rider to jump the blind step-up double (even though REM shortened the run at it to discourage anyone else from trying). That is not one of the Wharton brothers flagging. Photo: Mark Chilson As REM motocross continues to experiment with its all-new motocross track, the riders faced different layouts each week.
