Team Honda’s Trey Canard notched his second win of the year in San Diego. RCH Racing’s Ken Roczen crossed the line in second followed by Red Bull KTM’s Ryan Dungey in third. 

Riders battled for the upper hand off the start, and some pushed too deep into the opening turn, forcing a number off track but opening the door for Roczen to assume the early lead. Canard pushed his way into second-place, followed by Monster Energy Kawasaki’s Davi Millsaps, BTO Sports’ Andrew Short and Dungey. GEICO Honda’s Eli Tomac and TwoTwo Motorsports’ Chad Reed were inside the top-10 as well during the initial stages and the two battled one another for position, but while trying to pass Reed, Tomac got hung up on the Kawasaki and fell to the ground. He remounted but slipped back to around 15th. 



Up front, Roczen was pushing to stretch a gap but Canard was smooth and aggressive and had the Suzuki within reach by Lap 3. The following lap, Canard made his move on Roczen, but the Suzuki ace fought back immediately and the two were bar-to-bar for a moment before Canard regained the front and opened some space between the two. Roczen never let Canard escape too far and in the final laps was well within reach of challenging for the lead, but the Honda rider remained steady and consistent and never opened the door. 

Early in the race, Millsaps suffered an off which dropped him from third down to outside the top-10. This allowed Dungey to slip up into podium position. Though the KTM was within sight of the front runners at times, he never factored in the lead battle, instead cruising home for his fifth podium in six rounds. 

Reed was consistent as well, gaining fourth during the early laps and holding there to the checkers. Tomac staged a remarkable comeback after his early off to finish in fifth. Canard’s teammate, Cole Seely, was similarly impressive, a bad start putting the Honda rider near the back of the pack during the opening laps. He ended the night in sixth. 

Yoshimura Suzuki’s Blake Baggett continues to show growth in the 450 class and finished in seventh after barely making the Main Event, taking the final qualifying position in the LCQ. Short drifted back to eighth by the finish, followed by Roczen’s teammate, Broc Tickle, in ninth and Rockstar Husqvarna’s Jason Anderson in 10th. 

Dungey retains the red plate for another week, leaving San Diego nine points ahead of Roczen in second. Canard is third, 18 points adrift of the leader, followed by Tomac in fourth and Anderson in fifth.

Yamalube Star Racing Yamaha’s Cooper Webb grabbed his fourth 250 SX West race win of the year in San Diego. Troy Lee Designs’ Shane Mcelrath earned his best result of the season in second-place followed by Monster Pro Circuit Kawasaki’s Tyler Bowers in third. 




Rockstar Husqvarna’s Zach Osborne scored the holeshot but had Bowers and Webb hounding him through the opening turns. Bowers pushed his way to the front in the opening lap, and Webb slotted into second as Osborne slipped back in the ranks. Further back, GEICO Honda’s Malcolm Stewart got a good start and was pacing within the top-five, but a mistake caused him to case a jump and go down. 

Bowers held position at the front of the pack for the first half of the race, but Webb turned on the jets during the latter stages. The Yamaha rider lined Bowers up with six to go and made a quick, clean pass on the Kawasaki. Mcelrath was on a tear as well and got ahead of Bowers on the same lap. After that shake-up, the top three riders remained steady to the checkers. 

Kawasaki’s Josh Hansen finished in fourth-place followed by CycleTrader.com’s Alex Martin in fifth. Osborne dropped back to sixth by the finish, followed by his teammate, Zach Bell, in seventh. Mcelrath’s teammate, Jessy Nelson, powered back from a bad start which left him outside the top-10 to finish in eighth. 

Webb retains the 250 SX West points lead as riders in the division take a break from competition, the series moving to Texas next week, marking the start of the 250 SX East series. Nelson is second overall, followed by Bowers two points back in third and Osborne in fourth.
