Sun Valley, ID - The 2012 Lucas Oil Pro Motocross Championship Series kicked off last weekend at the Hangtown Outdoor National held in Sacramento, CA. Two SCOTT athletes stood out from the rest by battling hard in their respective classes to come away with podium finishes.
SCOTT goggle athlete Blake Baggett had one of the best come from behind rides in recent history when, in the first Moto he battled from mid pack to catch and pass the leaders on the last lap for the win. In the Second Moto Baggett took the lead early lead and went on to win by a sizeable margin. His dominating 1-1 finishes would give him the Overall win in the 250 class.
SCOTT Goggle athlete Ashley Fiolek also fought hard in her first Moto when she and rival Jessica Patterson battled back and forth for the lead multiple times until Fiolek would eventually go on for the 1st Moto win. In the second Women’s Moto Ashley got off to a great start but a late Moto crash while running up front would relegate her to a 5th place finish. Her 1-5 Moto scores were good enough for 2nd overall on the day.
SCOTT Sports would like to congratulate both athletes on their podiums and wish them good luck going into the next round in Texas.
