After his best supercross season ever in the 450SX class, gaining five podiums, Baggett entered the summer ready to be a top contender outdoors. After a stellar 2017 season that saw him take several wins, Baggett was a rider on everyone’s minds this year.

Moto 1 started off well for Baggett when he got out of the gate inside the top 10 and began moving forward. By lap four, Baggett was in 3rd, just ahead of Marvin Musquin and Justin Barcia. Barcia and Musquin kept each other busy, allowing Baggett to keep 3rd for the rest of the race until the checkered flag came out at the finish.

Moto 2 began with another strong start. It wasn’t long until Baggett found himself in 3rd position again. After holding off Musquin and keeping him to 4th place, Baggett finished out the race and took 3rd at the line. With 3-3 finishes on the day, Blake Baggett earned himself the 3rd-place podium finish overall at Thunder Valley.

Logging a podium this early in the season certainly bodes well for Baggett. With 9 rounds left in the season, Rocky Mountain ATV/MC is excited to see how the summer plays out for Baggett.
