2018 BUDDS CREEK MOTOCROSS | COMPLETE COVERAGE

If asked to name one obstacle from Budds Creek, we’d be willing to bet nearly every answer would be Henry Hill. It earned its name when Doug Henry’s feet came off the pegs as he approached the face and wound up jumping to the bottom of the massive downhill, crashing out of the race. Coming down the hill and into the off-camber corner at the bottom is the ultimate game of chicken, which got us wondering how fast they could go entering the corner without losing control. We headed out with our Bushnell radar gun and clocked the 250 class racers to see who could get off the gas and onto the brakes the latest.
