Hambone Watch, Round 6: Grand Prix of Japan

Our man on the FIM World Motocross Championship circuit, Team Swift Suzuki's Sean Hamblin, had a hell of a first moto, finishing in 8th place on the track in Sugo. But Sean had a tougher time in moto2, carding a 27th place finish after running as high as 11th, according to the FIM lap charts here. Hamblin still took away 13 championship points, and has climbed back into the top 20 in the championship standings, now at 18th place.

The story of the day, though, belongs to American Mike Brown, who took the outright second moto win in the MX1 class, which combined with his 4th place finish in the first moto gave him second overall on the day. Good job, or I should say "heckuva job, Brownie!"
