With Jason Anderson taking out the first 450SX main event of the season we had a look to see if in fact he was the fastest rider around the track. When looking at average lap times the Husqvarna rider was out in front with an average time of 1:03:177 pipping Ryan Dungey in second with an average of 1:03:542 and Ken Roczen in third 1:03:564. Dungey’s time was made all the more impressive considering he crashed during the main event.

Looking at overall fastest lap times things become a little different with Eli Tomac taking the crown clocking in at 1:01:954. Despite recording the fastest time Tomac was unable to land a podium finish for Kawasaki. Race winner Anderson scored second with an average of 1:02:169 and Cole Seely grabbed third 1:02:169.

As we extend our research onto the 250SX times we can quickly see that Copper Webb recorded not only the fastest lap time in his class but for both groups of riders. His time of 1:01:392 beat Tomac’s record in the 450’s while Jessy Nelson similarly recorded a faster overall time in the 250’s with a 1:01:397. Jimmy Decotis slotted into third place with a time of 1:02:256.

Webb’s dominance can be seen in the average lap times recorded sitting seven tenths faster than second placed Nelson. His average time of 1:03:416 was just slower than Anderson in the 450 class. While Nelson had the second fastest average he was closely followed by Zach Osborne and Jimmy ‘The Rippa’ Decotis.
