Justin Barcia was deserving of much more than a brace of twelfths at Southwick, but a handful of issues restricted him. This crash in the second moto, for instance, caused him to give up a spot on the moto podium.
Aaron Plessinger is expected to contend for wins whenever conditions are difficult. That’s exactly what he was doing in the first of two 250MX motos at Southwick, but this hard fall caused him to miss the rest of the event.
Adam Cianciarulo‘s performances at Southwick were marred by poor starts. Whilst cutting through the field he made some aggressive moves, like this one on Shane McElrath.
Marvin Musquin returned to the front of the 450MX division at Red Bud, so hopes were undoubtedly high entering the sand of Southwick. Musquin, who sat fourth in the points prior to the event, had a good ride in the first moto, but gave up twenty-five points to Eli Tomac when he had this spectacular crash in the second encounter.
