Byron's sure to be hunched over a laptop after the checkers are flown, caught in his own little version of heaven. Whether on dirt, street or a combination of both, MotoUSA's newest addition knows the only thing better than actually riding is telling the story of how things went down.

250 SX West

Monster Energy Pro Circuit Kawasaki’s Dean Wilson took the 250 SX West win in Las Vegas, beating Yamaha’s Cooper Webb. Wilson’s teammate Justin Hill rounded out the podium in third. Rockstar Energy’s Jason Anderson walks away with the 2014 250 SX West title, however, the KTM rider finishing sixth and retaining a five point advantage over Troy Lee Designs’ Cole Seely in second overall.

Anderson came into the round with an eight point lead over Seely in the championship standings, and were the primary contenders for this year’s title. The two have dominated previous 250 SX West rounds this season but a bad start in Vegas put Seely back in eighth and Anderson in ninth. Webb scored the holeshot and led through the initial laps followed by Wilson and Hill in third.

Things remained relatively quiet out front in the early stages of the race, but Seely was pushing to move up the ranks in order to close the points gap to Anderson. The KTM ace held to Seely’s rear tire until both had moved into fifth and sixth respectively as the race reached mid-point. Seely continued to drive ahead but could only make up one additional position, passing his teammate Malcolm Stewart in the final laps for fourth.

Webb, meanwhile, set up a nice gap early in the race but Wilson was able to chip that down to nothing, passing the Yamaha rider for the lead with seven laps remaining. Webb answered back a lap later but his lead proved short lived as Wilson retaliated soon after, holding the front to the finish.

“This is where we should have been all season,” said Wilson. “I really wanted the championship and I showed that I was the guy to beat. It didn’t work out but I’m happy to take another win and carry this momentum into outdoors.”

GEICO Honda’s Zach Osborne finished in seventh behind Anderson, followed by Seely’s teammates Shane Mcelrath and Jessy Nelson in eighth and ninth, respectively.

GEICO Honda’s Justin Bogle, was battling for a top-five position until the final laps when he lost his machine and went down, earning a 17-place finishing position in the Shootout.
