Hughes Victorious at Lake Elsinore Grand Prix

| November 14, 2005
 Suzuki Off-Road’s Ryan Hughes, riding an RM-Z450, came from behind to win the Lake Elsinore Grand Prix in Lake Elsinore, California, yesterday. Early in the race, Hughes plowed through a berm and tumbled down the side of a hill. He spent the rest of the race playing catch-up and eventually took over the lead and rode off to victory.

Second place went to Kawasaki Team Green’s Ricky Deitrich, who rode a KX450F. Third place went to Yamaha-mounted Mark Tilley, who was followed across the finish line by Suzuki rider Michael LaPaglia and Kawasaki pilot Justin Soule.
