The 2016 Lucas Oil Pro Motocross Championship continues on with round two taking place on the famed hills of Glen Helen Raceway. This is the only MX event on the schedule to take place in the heart of the motocross mecca and you can bet that riders will put everything on the line to show their speed in front of the key industry people. Timed qualifying has just concluded for the morning, and as expected, the first sessions for all groups were definitely quicker. It’ll be interesting to see how brutal the course becomes over the four motos set to run later this afternoon.

250 CLASS TIMED QUALIFYING

– Cooper Webb set the pace in the 250 class aboard his Yamalube/Star Racing/Yamaha machine, with a 2:27.136 lap in the first practice session. Not sure if Webb was either extremely confident on his time or resting his broken wrist, because midway through the second session he pulled into the mechanics area and watched his competitors on the television screens.

– Austin Forkner was just a tick off of Webb’s pace in practice, as the Monster Energy/Pro Circuit/Kawasaki rider was .100 seconds off of the leader’s time and turned a 2:27.236.

– After a tough weekend in Hangtown, Jeremy Martin is out to prove that he’s still the one to beat for the 250 title. The Yamalube/Star Racing/Yamaha rider was third overall with a 2:27.597.

– Another Martin was in the top-five fastest times, as Alex Martin claimed fourth on the board with a 2:28.821 lap aboard his own Yamalube/Star Racing/Yamaha machine.

– Will today be the time that Arnaud Tonus shows his true speed? The Monster Energy/Pro Circuit/Kawasaki rider was fifth fastest in the class at 2:28.904.

NEWS AND NOTES FROM THE 250 CLASS

– Incoming championship leader Joey Savatgy was sixth fastest in the class at 2:29.070.

-Gannon Audette is out for the weekend due to a concussion at last week’s race in Hangtown.

– After parting ways with the MAD Racing/Dirt Candy/Suzuki team late in the week, Matt Bisceglia is out for the Glen Helen MX.

– Kyle Peters just made the cut for the forty rider field with the thirty-fifth fastest time overall. Peters is determined to race today, as this is one of three races in his contract with Ride365.com/Crossland Racing.

450 CLASS TIMED QUALIFYING

– Eli Tomac logged the fastest lap of the entire morning, a 2:24.526, in his first practice of the day. Although the rough track conditions slowed the pace in the second practice, the Monster Energy Kawasaki rider still managed to turn laps in the 2:24 range.

– Incoming championship leader Ken Roczen was second overall on the clock, as a 2:25.061 was the best lap logged by the RCH/Soaring Eagle/Jimmy John’s/Suzuki Factory Racing rider.

– Jason Anderson took third on the board with a 2:25.673 and the Rockstar Energy Racing Husqvarna rider’s loose riding style showed on the wide-open lanes.

– Red Bull KTM’s Ryan Dungey was quietly fourth on the clock, but the morning wasn’t exactly easy for the reigning champion. He cased one of the many massive jumps on the track and seemed slow to start, then manged to move up the order in the closing moments of the first session.

– As many expected, Josh Grant is near the front of the pack on what’s essentially his home track. The Monster Energy Kawasaki rider’s best lap was a 2:26.981.

NEWS AND NOTES FROM THE 450 CLASS

– After a very tough week at Hangtown, many expected Yoshimura Suzuki riders Blake Baggett and James Stewart to sit out the day with injuries (Baggett – collarbone, Stewart – shoulder). Surprisingly enough, both riders are making an effort to race today and were fourteenth and fifteenth overall in the sessions.

– Darryn Durham has jumped up to the 450 class for the weekend and the popular privateer was eighteenth overall in qualifying.

Fans will also be watching the eight-time champ Red Bull KTM Factory Racing’s Antonio Cairoli as he returns to speed while the likes of Rockstar Energy Factory Racing’s Max Nagland Team HRC’s duo of Gautier Paulin and Evgeny Bobryshev could also be in good shape for some silverware.

Meanwhile things are heating up in MX2 with Monster Energy Kawasaki Racing Team’s Dylan Ferrandis matching the pace of the once named untouchable Red Bull KTM Factory Racing’s Jeffrey Herlings.
