EX Pro Main Class
Race Winner: Taddy Blazusiak
Podium: 1) Taddy Blazusiak 2) Cody Webb 3) Justin Soule
Most Laps Led: Taddy Blazusiak (10/12)
Major Crashes: Although there were plenty of slips and spills, thankfully no one walked away harmed and there are no major crashes to report.
Major Incidents: One thing is for certain, you will never leave Endurocross saying, "That was boring." And although Taddy Blazusiak won yet another round, this race had plenty of surprises. Stillwell Performance Beta's Cody Webb challenged Blazusiak for the entire 12 lap race, even sticking the lead for a few laps. Unfortunately the course got the best of Webb, and Blazusiak capitalized on his mistake; taking the lead and the win. After a pretty substantial injury in Sacramento- Monster Energy Kawasaki rider Justin Soule showed no signs of taking any time off. From practice to his heat, Soule looked just as confident and strong as ever. Spending much of the race defending himself against Kyle Redmond and Taylor Robert, Soule pushed ahead and moved into 3rd for a well deserved podium finish. X Games Gold medalist Mike Brown couldn't seem to find his rhythm this round and finished a tough 7th overall.
