Matt Goerke Repeats as MX1 class winner
Californian Matt Goerke, last year’s MX1 class Supermotocross winner, ran away from the field to win his second successive title. The real racing was between the second and third place riders. Riders exchanged positions on every lap for the first nine of the 12-lap affair before settling for the next two with Bobby Kiniry in second place behind Goerke, Kentucky native Tyler Bowers was third, followed by Teddy Maier and Tyler Madelia. On the last jump leading to the checkered flag, Bowers passed Kiniry in midair to finish second behind winner Matt Goerke. A disappointed Kiniry could not believe his eyes with Bowers jumping pass at the finish line. Maier, Klatt and Medaglia followed Kiniry.
