2020 Thunder Valley Motocross | Kickstart



Almost over. The 2020 Lucas Oil Pro Motocross Championship is in its closing stages and last weekend we made the trip to Colorado for the 2020 Thunder Valley Motocross. The Rocky Mountain round is one of our favorites on the schedule, thanks to Denver’s excellent offerings and a track that’s just as scenic as it is exciting, but this year’s visit was much later than normal (there’s a big difference in the weather between June and October) and made for a much different vibe.

Instead of the usual excitement that comes from being early in the series and out of California, riders and teams were focused on getting through round eight of the championship without issue, especially now that both title fights come down to the wire. It was an eventful day in both classes, as a new overall winner made things interesting in the 250 Class and the home state hero took a popular win in the 450 Class, but it’s obvious that everyone is ready for the long and stressful year to come to an end. 

There’s a lot going on in the pits and behind the scenes right now. Teams and OEMs are working to set their budgets and rosters for 2021, despite the uncertainty of some sponsors or a Supercross schedule, and everyone is trying to secure a ride or a job before the long offseason starts. 

Enough introduction writing. You’ve got 69 (nice) photos to look at and a few thousand words to read.
