Round 8 of the Lucas Oil Pro Motocross Championship headed West to Colorado for the Thunder Valley National. Thunder Valley brings a whole new set of circumstances with the track being at altitude and the riders with their bike and body dialed really shine through at this track. One rider to do just that was FXR athlete Grant Harlan. Grant has shown a lot of good races so far in 2020 and Colorado was no different going 20-11 for 15th overall! In the 450 class FXR also had Broc Tickle with some bad luck in moto 2 resulting in (18th) overall, Jeremy Smith (21st), Tristan Lane (30th), Jerry Lorenz (31st), Nathan Laporte (33rd), and Jeff Walker in (40th). The 250 class saw Maxwell Sanford in (32nd), and Otto Berton in (38th).
The series will wrap up next weekend for the final round in Pala, California for Round 9 of the series on October 10, 2020.
Brock Tickle came back from in CO from an injury at Spring Creek 2 weeks back.
