    “The first night was great — the vibes were awesome. [On> the second day, I was dealing with being tired and a bit of jetlag, so that was pretty difficult; I wasn’t on my game as much as Saturday, but still so fun,” Jett Lawrence stated.

    His brother, Hunter, also had his own win and only finished off the podium in one race, making him second overall. Hunter made his race debut on the CRF450RWE.

    It was a busy, busy, long, tiring three days, really. I’m happy it’s done, happy we’re walking away healthy. We’ve got a lot more information on the bike; it definitely doesn’t feel like a 250, with how fast things happen and come at you, especially out of berms, right into something — there’s so much inertia. We’ll keep improving towards the start of the season, and then hopefully keep ramping it up throughout the year,” Hunter Lawrence said.

    Meanwhile, Shimoda dominated the 250 class after winning four races with the CRF250R.

    “Overall, we took the win, so I’m stoked. Obviously, I did find some stuff that I need to work on, but I’m super-stoked on how everything is going — smooth, steady progress. I honestly just enjoyed these two days. I was confident with my pace; I feel like my riding was good, and my starts were good too. But with having just five-minute races, once things didn’t go well in the first two laps, it’s hard to regroup and pass all those guys. But winning four out of six motos, I think I had good focus. I’m really happy with my effort,” the Japanese racer stated.
