The California native went on to finish 6th overall with five top 5 finishes, just one point behind his teammate, Davi Millsaps, which is a testament to his new team and training regimen. Baggett is quickly becoming one of the premier division’s top young riders.

 

2018 Season Recap:

Blake continued his rise to the top of the 450SX division in 2018 by posting five podiums, and a very strong stat of 16 top 10 finishes in the 2018 Monster Energy Supercross Championship. Baggett led some laps in 2018 and was beginning to look like he was knocking on the door of his first career 450SX victory when he suffered a wrist injury at the Atlanta round. Quick to recover, Blake finished off the championship on the podium at the Las Vegas Finals.
