CADEN DUDNEY- 65 (10-11)
Caden Dudney had a couple of impressive performances at the Loretta Lynn Amateur National Motocross Championship, finishing a few races on the podium although he wasn’t able to replicate his title performance from 2019. Nonetheless, the Texan was hopeful of getting his hands on a number one plate at the Baja Brawl just as he did last year in the 65cc (7-9) class, showcasing some incredible wet weather speed on his way to the championship. Dudney’s consistency at the Brawl in 2020 was one of the main factors to his success, finishing eight out of nine motos that he contested inside of the top five. The Fly Racing backed rider entered both the 65cc (10-11) and 65cc (7-11) classes while also competing in the 85cc (9-11) Limited division, achieving overall podium finishes in all three. Dudney went 2-7-2 for 2nd overall in the 85cc class and showcased some solid speed on the bigger bike, but it was clear to see that he still favors the smaller bike in terms of raw speed. He won a total of three motos between the two 65cc classes and really came on strong towards the end of the weekend as the track really got rough and gnarly. In the 65cc (7-11) class, Dudney put together 5-2-1 moto scores for 2nd overall and he got the job done in the 65cc (10-11) class, coming out on top at the end of the three moto format. Despite a 5th place finish in moto one, the KTM rider bounced back in the second and third motos with a pair of race wins in order to clinch the title, leading every single lap in dominant fashion.
