Joey Savatgy fought hard throughout the day. Unfortunately, little mistakes hampered his performance. He finished fourth overall.
James Stewart returned and earned 10th in the first moto. He would pull off in the second moto.

Weston Peick’s day ended early. After cross-rutting a jump he was struck by Broc Tickle.
Alex Martin was no slouch by finishing third place overall.

Trey Canard wasn’t at his top speed upon returning. He still placed in the top 10 with sixth overall.
Ken Roczen stated that he has another level in him when he is challenged. He proved it Saturday, blazing past everyone and everything. He even won moto two on a bent shifter.

Cooper Webb started at the back of the pack both motos. That didn’t keep him from a 1-2 finish for second overall.

Broc Tickle’s day ended short. He committed to a jump before he knew Weston Peick would slip under him, causing a violent crash.
