Lap Times: Salt Lake City

undefinedSomeone obviously forgot to tell Salt Lake City that it's spring time. With temperatures hovering around 40 degrees, and even a few snow flurries hitting ground early in the day, Salt Lake City once again proved to challenge the riders both physically and mentally. But enough about the weather, let's get to the lap charts brought to you by Motion Pro.

Monster Energy Kawasaki's Ryan Villopoto took one step closer to claiming his first career SX title with his victory at Salt Lake City. Villopoto now has a commanding nine point lead heading into the final round at Las Vegas and can claim the title with at least a fifth place finish at the season finale. Villopoto also set the fastest lap of the night with a 42.737 on lap 6.

Salt Lake City proved to be the shortest track of the series thus far and the lap times proved it, with only one rider (excluding Mike Alessi, he crashed on first lap) surpassing the 49 second average lap time mark (Ben Lamay at 50.473).

Another rider that cannot go unmentioned is JGR/Muscle Milk/Toyota's Davi Millsaps. With all the attention on the "Fantastic Four" Millsaps quietly put in one his best rides of the year with a fifth place finish. Davi has struggled all year with problems from a crash last year where he lost part of his kidney, but has managed to find strength late in the year and his results and lap times are proving it.

The west coast boys were back at it again--after yet another week off--in Salt Lake City with major championship implications on the line. But when all was said and done it was GEICO Honda's rookie gem Eli Tomac coming away with the victory and the fastest lap of the night, a 43.868 on lap 3.

What a week for now 17-year-old German sensation Ken Roczen. The young gun started the week in the Netherlands where he placed second on one of the most brutal sandy tracks on the GP circuit, Valkenswaard. He then flew across the pond back to the United States, got sick, and then managed to go out and get another second place. An impressive feat indeed. His best lap was only fifth fastest of all, but K-Roc, like Tomac, is proving to be a quick study this year in consistency.
