XC2 250 Pro point leader Ben Kelley started on the first row and the Trail Jesters KTM rider earned his second-straight third overall finish, which was good enough for his eighth-straight XC2 250 Pro class win. One of the most impressive rides of the day came from AmPro Yamaha’s Ricky Russell, who led the opening lap after starting from row 3. Russell dropped off the pace when the two-lap board came out and eventually finished fourth overall and third in the XC1 Pro division.
Fifth overall and fourth in XC1 Open Pro went to Babbitt’s Online/Monster Energy/Kawasaki’s Jordan Ashburn. Meanwhile, Tely Energy Racing KTM’s Grant Baylor was fifth in the XC1 class and sixth overall, his best finish since returning to the series at the X-Factor GNCC earlier this season.
Second in the XC2 250 Pro class and seventh overall was Coastal Racing Husqvarna’s Craig DeLong, who turned in an impressive ride at Snowshoe. Just behind DeLong came Tely Energy Racing KTM’s Liam Draper, who earned his first XC2 podium finish with third in the XC2 250 Pro class with an eighth overall finish.
FXR/Thornhill Automotive/Husqvarna’s Cory Buttrick was ninth overall, ahead of Phoenix Honda Racing’s Andrew Delong. Rockstar Energy Husqvarna Factory Racing’s Trevor Bollinger missed the race reportedly due to an illness.
Beta USA’s Cody Barnes won the FMF XC3 125 Pro-Am class. It was his fourth win of the season and he now sits 13 seconds ahead of Trail Jesters KTM’s Jesse Ansley, who was second in class at Snowshoe. Lojak Cycle Sales’ Chase Colville was third on the day.
