RD. 10 UNADILLA
The "Legend" Unadilla, now in its 50th year running, hosted another great weekend of racing in New Berlin, New York. The Circle K Unadilla National brought good weather, huge crowds, and fast racing for the 10th round of the 2019 Lucas Oil Pro Motocross season.
Before racing commenced on Saturday, team USA was announced for this year's Motocross of Nations (MXoN). This year we will see a proud all #OGIOPOWERSPORTS team with Jason Anderson riding for the US in the MXGP class, Zach Osborne racing the Open Class and Justin Cooper in the MX2 class as Team USA will attempt to bring home the 23rd MXoN victory. The US leads the world with the most MXoN titles and we wish all 3 of these American supported OGIO athletes the best of luck this year as they take on the worlds fastest motocross racers in Assen, Holland on September 28 and 29.
Back to Unadilla! In the 450cc class, it was Red Bull KTM Factory Racing Marvin Musquin who would be pressuring the leaders throughout the day as he raced his way to a 2nd place finish in both moto 1 and moto 2. Musquins hard-charging efforts all day long put him on the podium with the 2nd place overall. Musquin still sits at number 2 on the leaderboard with only 2 rounds remaining. Musquin wasn't the only #OGIOPOWERSPORTS racer to hit the podium as Zach Osborne of Rockstar Energy Husqvarna Factory Racing was putting in the work all weekend as well. Zach would race himself to an equal 4th in both moto's earning him a 3rd place podium finish for the weekend.
In the 250cc class, it was more of the same intense action-packed racing we have been witness to all year long. Adam Cianciarulo of Monster Energy/Pro Circuit/Kawasaki and Dylan Ferrandis of Monster Energy/Star Racing/ Yamaha in a fierce fight for 250 supremacy. In both moto number 1 and 2, we would see a very close fought race between the two. A.C. would go on to take 1st in moto 1 and 2nd moto 2, while Dylan Ferrandis would go on to take the overall with a 2nd in moto 1 and a 1st in moto 2.
It was nice to see some new faces in the mix too! Carson Mumford and Jett Lawrence (Hunter Lawrences’ little brother) made their 250cc Pro debut. Both Lawrence and Mumford put on respectable races, Carson taking the 20th place finish overall while Jett would take 13th.
