Congratulations to Rocky Mountain ATV/MC-KTM-WPS team member Blake Baggett for taking 2nd place at round nine of the 2019 Monster Energy Supercross series at the Mercedies-Benz Stadium in Atlanta, Georgia. This puts Baggett 5th in the overall point standings.

Baggett had been riding well all night, unphased by the technical track. He dominated his qualifying heat, and kept the energy high into the main event. Tonight’s race went to the riders who made the fewest mistakes, and Baggett showed focus and control throughout.

The Atlanta track sported a long straight-way start to heat up competition for the holeshot, and a diabolical pig-tail/overpass jump. Cooper Webb started the race hot to take the holeshot, but had to work to keep Baggett and Musquin at bay. The soft, unforgiving track snagged foot pegs and bottomed out bikes as the race progressed. Battling all night with Marvin Musquin, Baggett seized an opportunity to pass during a tight turn and kept his lead to the checkered flag.
