SX 250

At the start Tomac for the holeshot and in the lead, behind him Roczen chasing. Roczen gets the lead at lap 10 because Tomac goes head first into the mud with a mistake on a jump at the end of the whoops section. Roczen passes him and the positions won’t change through the end. Roczen got is luck and he was good in capitalizing Tomac’s mistake, increasing his point-lead to twenty.

SX 450

Everyone was awaiting another battle in front between Villopoto and Dungey, but the big surprise of the night in Seattle was Justin “Bam Bam” Barcia. Barcia is not caught in the pile up at the first turn, with Villopoto taking out Reed who could not continue. The Red Devil is fast back in third and after another lap passes Alessi but without being able to reduce the gap from Barcia. It wasn’t too bad for Villopoto: finishing 2nd he extends his points lead, with Millsaps back in 2nd at 296 and with Dungey at 295; the KTM rider fought his way back to fourth after being caught in the initial pile up.
