Don’t forget to head over to the Battle of the MX British Titles for the final round of the Maxxis ACU British Motocross Championship and Judd KTM British Youth Championship
With the championships coming down to the wire, there was definitely a heightened sense of tension at the GEICO Motorcycle Budds Creek National. The penultimate round of the season traditionally produces some of the most unpredictable racing and surprising outcomes of the season, and while Monster Energy Kawasaki’s Eli Tomac was dominant en route to his fifth win of the season and the clinching of a third consecutive 450 Class title, it was the performance by Troy Lee Designs/Red Bull/KTM’s Shane McElrath that left onlookers in awe.
Fortunately, thanks to the series partners over at GoPro, fans can get a first-hand look at the most successful afternoon of McElrath’s career. Additionally, see how 250 Class point leader Adam Cianciarulo found himself in the thick of it all aboard his Monster Energy/Pro Circuit/Kawasaki. Over in the 450 Class, check out what Rockstar Energy Husqvarna Factory Racing’s Dean Wilson and Kawasaki rider Lorenzo Locurcio went through on a truly wild and memorable afternoon at Budds Creek.
