Gallery: 2021 Pro Watercross Liqui-Moly Tour – Rounds 2 & 3


Round Two of the 2021 Pro Watercross Liqui-Moly Tour served up a little bit of everything – from sunshine, blue skies and a challenging, technical course on Saturday, made even more interesting by a steady, regular rhythm of 3-4 foot rollers pushing the tide steadily up the beach to lap at the EZ-ups to Sunday’s grey overcast skies, washing-machine chop and simplified course set-up to accommodate the rough conditions.

But through all that mother nature could throw at the Pro Watercross racers and staff over the May 1-2 weekend at St. Augustine’s Vilano Beach, they came right back with hard-charging racing to keep up the momentum set for the season at the Sebring Season opener.

Saturday was packed with Pro races, as the race staff churned through all three Pro Show motos, with Amateur Moto 1 races scattered between the Pro rounds, and many of the battle lines drawn at Sebring were revisited and some of the seasons top battles began to take shape as racers vie for those all-important tour points, not to mention the bragging rights and purse money for a weekend overall podium spot.

Saturday night’s shift in weather and surf not only sent riders scrambling to make adjustments to skis and strategies, but had race officials scrambling after the evening’s rough tides tore down the start tower, and the heavy chop not only called for a simplified course layout, but a “line up the best you can” rolling start that tested the skill, stamina and staying-power of Veteran racers and beginner and Youth classes equally.

St. Augustine’s results built on the successes and struggles of Sebring’s Round One, and with the completion of the Mother’s Day Round Three this past weekend in Panama City Beach, the Pro Watercross National Tour is officially at its halfway mark. With a few down – weeks before the tour picks up its second half on June 5-6 in South Padre Island, Texas, The Watercraft Journal provides the following mid-season roundup of contenders in each class.
