Horner on his Fasst Co. Honda rounded out the top 10 overall with Pro II riders Kai Aiello on his 3 Bros./Hatch Racing Husqvarna and FMF/RPM Racing KTM's JP Alvarez 11th and 12th overall, respectively. After missing four rounds due to a violently devastating non-racing crash, CST Tires/Fly Racing KTM's Brandy Richards lined up for her first race since the accident and picked up right where she'd left off. The three-time Pro Women's champ shared, "I've been on the bike for about a month now. [It felt] a lot better than I thought [it might]. The longest moto I've done practicing is like a 45-minute moto and my legs were pretty tired after that, so I was a little worried about the last half-hour, but I actually felt really good. I tried to sprint the first couple laps because I knew my legs eventually would get tired. So I sprinted, then found a good pace that I could [maintain] the rest of the race." It's a good first step as she rebuilds toward the goal of com - peting for the U.S. ISDE team in Argentina in November. 3 Bros./Hatch Racing Gas- Gas rider Ava Silvestri finished second for the sixth time this season, but that consistency now sees her as the Pro Wom - en's points leader, unofficially, over the absent Mikayla Nielsen, 171-166. FMF/RPM Racing KTM's Kaitlyn Jacobs is third at 135 after finishing third on the day, with Richards fourth with 90 points. The series resumes with round eight in Preston, Idaho, on August 19-20.
