With the Kawasaki riders Stewart and Villipoto on a roll it could well be a one man show in both the 450 and 250 classes. But don’t forget we have seen some strong rides from Mike Allessi, Davi Millsaps and Tim Ferry in the premiere class and also Ryan Dungey in the lites class. Jason Lawrence may just find what he’s looking for and make a return to form.
In moto 1 of the premiere class Mike Alessi got the holeshot but James Stewart took the lead soon after. Both riders pulled away quickly from the rest of the pack, Ferry, Townley, Tedesco and Milsaps.
Milsaps soon started moving through the pack into fourth early in the moto.
