I got up front pretty early and was able to hold a good pace, instead of do anything stupid. It was among the toughest races of the season for sure.

It’s a great series with a lot of good riders so you have to just keep plugging away. ” Tomac published a career-best finish in 2nd, as did Team Honda Muscle tissue Milk’s Cole Seely in 3rd in his first 450SX Class start of the season filling in for injured cyclists Justin Barcia and Trey Artifice.

I nearly gave it back a little bit later, yet I got back on the bike fast and kept the lead. ” Davalos recovered from his accident to finish second, while GEICO Honda’s Justin Bogle passed his teammate late to secure his second straight third-place result.
