2022 Thunder Valley Motocross National Results, Standings + Video

Late in the final lap of the second moto at the 2022 Thunder Valley Motocross National, race leader Chase Sexton suffered a minor entering a deep rut, handing the Moto 2 and overall win to Ken Roczen. Sexton had taken the lead from Roczen at the halfway point, and maintained a comfortable margin over Roczen until the fall. Roczen was fresh from an epic battle with hometown hero Eli Tomac for P2, with Roczen pulling away after a Tomac blew through a rut while attempting a pass on Roczen at the redesigned Thunder Valley MX Park circuit. Sexton’s fall took the overall win from crowd-favorite Tomac and transferred it to Roczen, with Sexton retaining his P3 overall.

Tomac won the first moto, passing Roczen on Lap 11 of 16. Anderson rounded out the Moto 1 podium. Anderson fell in the second moto, eventually finishing in P6 in the race and P4 overall. Antonio Cairoli had his best day of the season—his 5-4 finishes put him in P5 overall, well clear of Dungey in P6. After finishing in the Top 5 in the first four Motos of the season, Christian Craig suffered falls that resulted in a 10-12 and P12 overall.

Roczen gained seven points on 2022 Lucas Oil AMA Pro Motocross National Championship Series leader Sexton, with Roczen now five points behind Sexton. Tomac moves past Anderson to take over P3 in the series, nine points ahead of Anderson and behind Roczen. Despite his difficult day, Craig retains P5 in the series standings, though just three points ahead of Cairoli and Ryan Dungey.

The next race is in a week—the High Point National at High Point Raceway in Mount Morris, Penn. Check our 2022 Motocross TV Schedule for cable and streaming coverage times.
