THE AFTERMATH: 2016 GLEN HELEN USGP
Eli Tomac had to come from behind in both motos to take the win.
Max Nagl (12) pulled the holeshot in the final moto of the 2016 MXGP season.
Mitchell Oldenburg’s day was hampered by a gnarly start crash in the first moto.
Tim Gajser worked hard to catch up to Tony Cairoli.
Jeremy Seewer was throwing whips all day. He would end the championship in second.
Jeremy Martin would finish a solid second overall in his first outing with Geico Honda.
Tim Gajser’s home crowd followed him to Glen Helen. The Slovenian fans high-fived Gajser as track owner Bud Feldkamp snuck on by.
When this photo was taken Eli Tomac was building up the momentum to pass Tony Cairoli (222). Watch the pass here.
Who wore the holeshot better, Jeffrey Herlings (1) or Austin Forkner (214)? Neither, because if you look closely at Austin Forkner’s front wheel, you’ll notice roost. Where is it coming from? Max Anstie.
Max Anstie was looking for a third in the 250 championship, but Benoit Paturel’s sixth was enough to put him into the third position overall.
