Team Rocky Mountain ATV/MC-KTM-WPS had an incredible day at round 3 of the 2017 Lucas Oil Pro Motocross Championship at Thunder Valley. Blake Baggett earned the team’s – and his own – first ever 450MX overall victory.

Blake Baggett #4

Baggett was on fire throughout the day. In the first moto, he got caught in a pileup right at the beginning. However, he mounted a furious charge to the front, eventually passing the likes of Tomac, Musquin and Seely to reach 3rd. In the second moto, he got a great start and soon moved into the lead. While Tomac managed to get around him, Baggett stayed close and made a pass to regain the lead. He finished in 1st, and his 3-1 results gave him the overall.

“You can’t ask for a better weekend,” said Baggett. “The bike worked perfect this weekend and allowed me to battle back in moto 1 and take the win in moto 2. I’m pumped to get this win for the team, as they have been working hard all year.”

Dakota Alix #70

Alix also had his best finish of the season so far. He got great starts in both motos and battled hard, finishing 13-14 for 15th overall.

“I’m happy with how I rode out there today,” Alix said of his ride. “My starts were good today, and I put in two solid motos. We are moving in the right direction, and I’m looking forward to making more progress at Mt. Morris in a few weeks.”
