As cliche as it sounds, we’ll never forget this year’s trip to Morgantown for the 2022 High Point Motocross, because excellent weather, an immaculately prepped track, and action through every lap made round four of the Lucas Oil Pro Motocross Championship feel like a perfect day at the races. 

Notes from the weekend on the WV-PA border…

– Eli Tomac’s post-race comments are really, really good. The Monster Energy/Star Racing/Yamaha rider told us that his run in Moto One came down to line choices and getting trapped behind guys, an explanation that notes the importance of starts against the current field. His push from sixth to first in Moto Two was impressive, as he hammered to catch-pass-drop all of his title rivals. Standing by the track made us think that wasn’t “all-out” Eli, though, which piques our interests ahead of RedBud and Southwick.

– Chase Sexton is a legit championship contender. The Team Honda HRC rider put any remaining talk of the Thunder Valley crash to rest when he got the holeshot and led every lap of 450 Moto One. His efforts to stay with Tomac in 450 Moto Two were admirable and the second place result kept him losing points to anyone. Sexton told us that these next four races will require a big push and more wins, but that he’s ready for the challenge.

– Full disclosure: we didn’t know Jason Anderson was in the mix for the podium until he pulled into the parc ferme area after 450 Moto Two. The Monster Energy Kawasaki rider was very fast at round four, as he again clicked off the quickest lap in the closing moments of the morning’s practice session and rallied to 3-5 finishes, but the Tomac-Sexton-Roczen-Dungey battle took our full attention. Anderson admitted that he had nothing for that group in our post-race talk, but a fourth-place rank in the championship keeps him in the thick of things.
