Monster Energy/Pro Circuit/Kawasaki’s Blake Baggett Rides to Runner-up Finish at Washougal
Monster Energy/Pro Circuit/Kawasaki’s Blake Baggett Rides to Runner-up Finish at Washougal

Irvine, Calif. – In nearly perfect conditions Saturday, on a tree-lined hillsidein Washougal, Washington, Blake Baggett rode to a second-place finish for theMonster Energy/Pro Circuit/Kawasaki team with a 5-2 result. His stable mateDean Wilson rode in the top 10 all day finishing with 8-6 moto results whichplaced him seventh overall. In the 450MX class Monster Energy Kawasaki’s BrettMetcalfe put in two good rides, finishing 5-4 which matched a season bestfourth overall for the Australian rider. 

Never Give Up

As the motocross season is entering the home stretch,Baggett knows he has a lot of work in front of him to earn a second nationalchampionship. At Washougal he rode consistently in both motos hovering around apodium finish. A tip over in the first moto saw Baggett drop from third to fifth,but a great start in the second moto as well as some hard charging saw himfinish in the runner-up spot and gave him enough points to earn second overallon the day.

 

“After last weekend I knew I had to get back out here andget as many points as possible,” said Baggett. “This championship is not overand anything can happen, so I’m going to keep working to put myself in positionto get the championship if I can.” 

Steady Metty

Metcalfe put together his best ride of the summer since theopening round at Hangtown, getting good starts in both motos and running a fastpace throughout the afternoon. In the first moto, the Australian rider crossedthe line in seventh on the first lap and methodically worked his way up to afifth place finish on his KX™450F. In the second moto, Metty got an even betterstart, as he was third after the first corner. He pushed hard throughout thewhole moto and earned a fourth place finish to match his best overall finish ofthe season.

 

“I felt good during the race,” said Metcalfe. “I really likethis track and it is a lot of fun to ride. The dirt was in good shape duringthe motos after all the rain this week. It got a little rough but we keptadjusting the bike to make it better.”

Working

Wilson came into Washougal looking to regain his podium formbut, after getting mired in the pack at the start of both motos he was onlyable to move up to eighth and sixth respectively. 

 

“This wasn’t the race we were looking for,” said Wilson. “Iknow I’m faster than how I rode and we have a great team here at MonsterEnergy/Pro Circuit/Kawasaki so I’m going to keep putting in the work to get theresults we want.”

Hometown Heroes

The Pacific Northwest is considered the home track for RyanVillopoto, Jake Weimer and Justin Hill but unfortunately injuries kept the triofrom racing this weekend. While Villopoto continues to rehab from his kneesurgery, Weimer is still trying to build strength after getting hit earlierthis year. Hill is still fighting problems in his forearm and will takeadvantage of the upcoming off weekend.

Gravity Cavity

The motocross series takes a well-earned weekend off beforeheading to New York and the iconic Unadilla motocross track. It is still a busyweek for Monster Energy Kawasaki as Team Green has set up Greenville at the AMAAmateur National Motocross Championships at Loretta Lynn’s.
