A better start in moto two allowed Benny to battle inside the top 10 for the full moto, earning another 8th place finish. Even with missing the first part of the season, Benny’s solid rides earned him 12th overall in the championship points.
Entering the second to last round, Team Rocky Mountain ATV/MC headed to just outside Washington D.C. as round eleven of the 2019 Pro Motocross Championship visited Budds Creek MX in Mechanicsville, MD.

In Moto two, Benny found himself outside the top ten early in the race. In the heat of the day, he would work his way to 11th place at the checkered flag, earning him 9th overall for the day.

Justin Bogle launched out of the gate in moto one, and rounded the first turn nearly grabbing the holeshot. He would put on a fight inside the front pack, as he battled for position inside the top five for the first half of the race. He would eventually slide back a few positions to take the checkered flag in 10th place. Another solid start for Justin in moto two allowed him to battle inside the top ten. The #19 rider hit his lines every lap to cross the finish line in 9th place, taking home 9th overall for the day.

Justin Bogle did not get the greatest of starts in Moto One, as he finished the first lap outside the top twenty. He would go on to put in a charge through the field and work his way up to just outside the top ten to finish in 12th place at the checkered flag. Justin came back in Moto Two with a much better start putting him inside the front pack. He put up the good fight, battling within the top ten throughout the moto finishing 11th, and finishing 11th overall for the day.
It was a tough weekend for theTeam Rocky Mountain ATV/MC as round eight of the 2019 Pro Motocross Championship came to Spring Creek MX in Millville, MN.
Blake Baggett’s first moto did not go as well as planed, as he would run into a big pileup right after turn one with a number of riders including Jason Anderson. He would soon go down again right after trying to make passes in the same section, as riders were going everywhere with the first lap conditions. As if that wasn’t a rough enough start, Blake went down for a third time on lap two on the face of the large catapult jump. Where most riders would call it a moto, #4 just put his head down, pulled a tear-off from his goggles and found a rhythm that would bring him from nearly a lap down back up to 17th position at the checkered flag. A better start in the second moto allowed Blake to battle inside the top ten the whole moto, crossing the finish line in 9th place at the checkered flag. He would earn 12th overall for the day.
