CARLSBAD, Calif., (July 31, 2006) – Troy Adams of the Monster Energy/Pro Circuit/Kawasaki team put up his best numbers of the year on the Toyota AMA Motocross Championship tour, going 6-5 for 4th place overall in the Lites class on Sunday in front of another giant Pacific Northwest motocross crowd at Washougal, Wash.
Adams’ teammate, Ryan Villopoto, a hometown boy from nearby Poulsbo, Wash., and AMA Lites class points leader heading into Sunday’s contest, lost a ton of ground on rival Mike Alessi with a DNF in the first moto. But Villopoto then gained a bunch of ground back when he placed 2nd in the second moto. As it stands Villopoto now trails Alessi by just three points, 315-312.
Also raising some eyebrows for the Monster Energy/Pro Circuit/
Kawasaki fans was the return of Chris Gosselaar. Then southern
Californian pulled the holeshot in the first moto and led for a
couple laps. He made the top ten overall after being out with an
injury, going 7-15 for 10th overall.
The Monster Energy/Pro Circuit/Kawasaki team returns to action in a couple weeks when the 2006 Toyota AMA Motocross Championship this tour stops at Millville’s (Minn.) Spring Creek MX Park (Aug. 13) for Round Nine of the 12-round series.
