As you’ve already read, heard or witnessed, the AMA Motocross class at Thunder Valley this past Sunday was one of the most epic races that we’ve seen for a while. In fact, midway through the second moto it was really unknown who would be the overall winner. James Stewart managed to get the "W" without winning a moto, and he also logged the fastest lap time in the first moto, barely, with a 2:25.065. First moto winner, Davi Millsaps, had a 2:25.102, which was just off of Stewart’s fastest lap. The top four overall finishers were all running 2:25s.

Jason Thomas put in two solid motos

In the second moto another Kawasaki rider logged the fastest lap, and it wasn’t James Stewart. After charging up to 11th in the first moto, Tim Ferry, for the second week in a row, charged up through the pack and took a moto win. Along the way he logged a 2:26.280, which held up as the quickest throughout the moto. Makita Suzuki’s Ivan Tedesco had the next fastest lap of the moto (2:26.350) but unfortunately a crash relegated him to 17th overall.

Ryan Villopoto was the fastest rider on the track in Colorado

Once again, the fastest riders on the track are in the AMA Motocross Lites division, and they’re aboard green bikes. In moto 1, in which he won by over 14 seconds, Monster Energy/Pro Circuit Kawasaki’s Ryan Villopoto laid down a 02:24.884, which was the fastest lap time of the entire day. Temperatures and altitude wasn’t a problem for the Mitch Payton boys, and in the second moto BT101 had the fastest lap time—a 02:25.011—which was faster than James Stewart’s first-moto fast lap time. As we’ve seen all season long in this competitive Lites division, the next fastest rider is Yamaha of Troy’s Jason Lawrence, who is usually a second or so off of the Kawi boys. What’s it going to take for J-Law to shave a second off his lap time?
