Monster Energy Kawasaki Team Green’s Colt Nichols Wins 250 Pro Sport at Mammoth

Irvine, Calif. (June 30, 2013) – Saturday at Monster Energy Mammoth Motocross featured some of the best racing all week as the 250 classes took to the mountain. Monster Energy Kawasaki Team Green’s Colt Nichols had a breakthrough ride to capture his first “big bear” and championship in 250 Pro Sport. Nichols put on a clinic in the first moto by passing nearly the entire field to come from last place to second by the checkered flag. In Moto 2, the Oklahoma native made it easy on himself by grabbing the holeshot and checking out by more than 20 seconds. In the 250 B class, Pro Circuit Team Green riders Darian Sanayei and Zac Commans battled upfront and finished third and fourth respectively.
