This year they had Moto X racing.. a cross between Supercross and Arenacross.. 16 qualifiers run in 4, 6 lap heats, winner only going to the final. Then two LCQs, also 6 laps with winners only to the final.

Heat winners
Kdub
Mike Byrne
RC
Reed

LCQ winners
Langston
DV

Final
gold: RC (by a long way)
silver: Langston
bronze: Kdub
4th Reed
5th Byrne
6th DV


Pastrana was in the heat race with Byrn but was caught sleeping at the gate in neutral.. Still looked fast enough to win but it was obvious he hasn't been racing with people. He seems to have forgotten the diffenence between the fast line and the racing line. Twice he was blocked. In his LCQ, determined not to be too slow, he jumped the start and got hung in the gate and started out 5th, the only reason he didn't come to the first corner last was that Sorby jumped and got hung in the gate too.

The final was RC from start to finish, classic GOAT.. Reed was a close second and stayed right on him for about 4 laps then faded badly. langston was gaining on RC, but the last couple laps RC was showboating, doing tail whips, waving to the crowd and did one real nice no foot can-can.

Let's not forget that Pastrana handicapped himself by bringing a 250F to the gate. I'm not real sure what he was thinking.

No suprise that RC won... i was surprised to see Reed fade so badly since the course was essentially an outdoor sx track... I guess he just isn't in race shape yet w/ the sx season still being several months away...

are you sure I thought he was on a 450
It was mentioned just prior to his heat. They said he was on a 250, at first I though that he was on a 2 stroke, then I looked at it.

I think it was only 6 laps too.. CR came in 4th of the 6 in the final.

Langston stayed pretty close to RC.......

And Reed fell asleep and let K-Dub stuff him into that turn .... Great ride by all the medal winners.....
