PhotoWith heavy rain, today's round of the 2006 Hitachi WMA Pro National Motocross Championship was reduced to one moto, but what the race was lacking in length, it made up for in action. When the gate dropped, it was Yamaha-mounted Sherri Cruse out front, before she was displaced by Tarah Geiger, who was also on a Yamaha and pitting out of the Motoworld Yamaha rig along with her teammate, Sarah Whitmore, this weekend.

After a crash by Gieger, yet another Yamaha-mounted rider, Alisa Nix, took over the lead. Geiger got back around her when Alisa went wide at the bottom of the downhill, but Tarah fell once again and handing the lead back to Nix.

In the meantime, Unbound / Moto XXX / Honda's Jessica Patterson was making forward progress, and with a couple laps to go, Nix went down hard, leaving Patterson in the lead. Sarah Whitmore was also making forward progress of her own, and made it up to third, while Nix remounted to finish fourth.

The final round of the 2006 Hitachi WMA Pro National Motocross Championship is in two weeks in Steel City. For a 15-photo gallery from the race, click here.
