Thor was well represented in the 450 class with four riders posting top-10 overall results. At his first race since injuring his hand at Hangtown, Tyla Rattray narrowly missed the podium with a 4-5 moto result for fourth overall. Thor’s Broc Tickle also put together a solid effort in sixth with a 5-9 moto finish for the day, while Cole Thompson scored his first top-10 finish of the season with a 7-8 for seventh overall. After a great first moto where he finished second, Jake Weimer recovered from multiple crashes in the second moto to finish 10th overall with a 2-20.
