Arlington, TX - Supercross Race Recap 

 

250 –

 

Dallas was the first round of the much anticipated east coast 250 series.

The day started great with Fox Monster Pro Circuit Kawasaki rider Martin Davalos setting the faster qualifying time and Austin Forkner setting the 8th fastest time.

Qualifying set the tone going in the night event with Austin Forkner taking the win in the first heat race and Davalos taking the win in heat 2. Both riders put in dominating performances.

As the main event started, Davalos had a great jump and looked to be in line for the holeshot heading into the first turn. As the riders started to brake for left hander, Martin was hit from behind causing a chaotic first turn crash. Davalos was thrown across the track taking several riders with him along the way. Luckily, he was not seriously hurt and will be ready to race at Tampa.

Austin Forkner was able to miss the first turn carnage and start the main near the front of the pack. A mid race collision with Zack Osbourne put Austin on the ground. Austin remounted and charged through the pack, and eventually finishing 7th.

Unfortunately, the Dallas Supercorss marked the first round that Ken Roczen had to sit out with a hand injury he sustained at the San Diego round last week. Ken had  surgery to repair his hand on Friday. Surgery went well with Ken already starting therapy this week. No timeline on his return just yet.

Dallas also marked Chad Reed’s 227th main event start. A number that tied him for all time SX starts with Mike LaRocco. Chad looks to take the all-time starts lead with his 228th start in Tampa this coming weekend.

250 –

Both Fox Monster Pro-Circuit Kawasaki riders Joey Savatgy and Adam Cianciarulo debuted our military inspired San Diego 180 SE kits for the San Diego race.

Once again, Joey and Adam got off to great starts in the main event. Joey with the holeshot and Adam in third. Adam quickly worked his way past Justin Hill to get into second, with his sights set on Savatgy in the lead. Adam put some great laps together to close in on Joey and make his move for the lead in the right hander, just before the triple.  

Justin Hill was also on the move, passing Joey for seond and setting his sights on Adam in first. The two had a great battle for the lead with Justin eventually taking the win.

Adam finished second with Joey in fourth. Both riders making up points on points leader Aaron Plessinger who finshed 7th.

The west coast guys take a break now as the east coast will kick their season off in Dallas this weekend.

 

450 –

Round 6 of the AMA Supercross series brought the riders to San Diego. Ken Roczen paid homage to the armed forces with a set of custom Camo Preest Flexair Racwear. Ken’s gear may have been the highlight of his night.

As the main event statrted, Ken got tangled with a couple riders going in to the first turn and went down. As he picked himself up and started to work his was through the pack he became engaged in a heated battle with Cooper Webb… Both riders not wiling to give an inch. The final move came with Ken getting more traction than he anticipated, trying to dive under Copper in a left hand turn. His bike rocketed out of his grasp and into Webb. The ensuing crash had Ken’s right arm get caught in the swingarm and rear wheel of Webb’s bike, injuring his hand and bringing his night of racing to an end.

Ken will most likely miss a couple of rounds with a hand injury. We are hoping for a speedy recovery and hope to see Ken back to racing soon.

Oakland, CA - Supercross Race Recap

250 –

 

Fox had another strong showing from Monster Pro-Circuit Kawasaki rider Joey Savatgy. Joey got out of the gate strong, running second for the majority of the race. The closing laps saw Joey slip back to third as Justin Hill was able to pass for second. Joey fought back to pass Justin and land in 2nd place on the podium for the night, and retain his second position in the point standings.

Adam Cianciarulo had a tough start in the main event, going off the track in the first turn. Adam battled his way through the pack to finish in 7th, leaving Oakland 4th in the championship points standings.

 

450 –

 

In what turned out to be one of the best races to date, Ken Roczen came so close to capturing his first win of the season at Oakland SX.

The track turned out to be the most demanding and technical we have seen this year. Ken got off to a great start, behind his teammate Cole Seely. For a moment, it looked like it was going to be a factory Honda sweep of the top two podium spots. Seely ended up going down in one of the technical rhythm sections with Ken taking over the lead. Ken put in great ride to hold the lead for the majority of the race. As the race came to its closing stages, points leader Jason Anderson was on the move, closing to within striking distance with two laps to go.

What ensued was an epic battle to the finish. Ken and Jason swapped the lead several times in the last two laps, coming down to the last rhythm section where Ken made a small mistake that allowed Jason to pass for the win.

Ken’s great ride moved him up to 2nd in the points standing as the series heads to San Diego.

Glendale AZ - Supercross Race Recap

250SX CLASS

Adam Cianciarulo #92

Continuing his impressive season, Adam Cianciarulo entered the main in the third qualifying spot. He started the main event in sixth, and from there methodically picked off riders. By the sixth lap, he found himself riding in fourth and was able to take advantage of a mistake by Joey Savatgy to secure third, where he would finish the race.

Joey Savatgy #17

Joey Savatgy started the main event with an incredible holeshot from the outside starting gate. He stayed with the front pack for several laps and was keeping pace in third, but a late mistake in the final few laps would lose him a few spots. He recovered quickly and battle back, ending the night in fourth.

Adam and Joey are sitting 3rd and 4th in the Championship as they head to Oakland.  

 

450SX CLASS

Ken Roczen #94

The 450 class saw Ken Roczen put in an excellent rebound ride after a tough night at the A2 Triple Crown event. Working his way past title contenders Jason Anderson and Marvin Musquin to finish third on the night and gain valuable championship points. Ken leaves Phoenix in 3rd place in the points, just 12 back from the leader, Jason Anderson.

Chad Reed #22

In Glendale, Chad Reed found himself in the LCQ for the second week in a row as he continues to fight through his ankle injury. The dramatic LCQ saw Reed exit the first turn in third. After losing some ground, he would fight back to second; the crowd loved it. Reed would finish 19th in the main. His results aren’t there yet, but there's no quit in #22. Chad dawned a custom set of 360 Preme racewear to celebrate Australia day.

Anaheim 2 - Supercross Race Recap

Anaheim 2 marked the first round of the Triple Crown format for the 2018 Supercross series. The Triple Crown features a unique 3 main event format that would see good starts being more critical than the traditional single main event SX format. Shorter main events meant less time to come through the pack.

 

250 SX –

The 250 class saw both Monster Pro-Circuit Kawasaki Fox riders Joey Savatgy and Adam Cianciarulo getting great starts in all 3 main events. Savatgy would go on to win 2 of the 3 mains giving him the overall Triple Crown victory for the night. Joey’s strong performance had him leave Anaheim tied for the Championship points lead.

 

450 SX –

In a night where starts were critical, Ken Roczen struggled to get off the line in the first two main events. A good start and a solid ride in the third main saw Ken finish in 4th place. Ken leaves A2 in 4th place in the overall championship.

 

Still riding himself into race shape after a preseason injury, Chad Reed won the last chance qualifier during the day to get into the night program. Gutty rides in the 3 mains saw Chad come him in 14th overall for the night.

The Vue goggle features unmatched field of vision, an injection molded Polycarbonate lens and our exclusive TruLock quick change lens system. Now, you can see the same possibilities as Ken Roczen.

46th ANNUAL AMATEUR MX WINTER OLYMPICS

46th Annual Winter Olympics

Gatorback Cycle Park

Gainesville, FL.

November 21-25th, 2017

 

The 46th Annual running of the Winter Olympics kicked off this past week at the iconic Gatorback Cycle Park. This unique event features 2 race tracks, Supercross during the first half of the week, followed by the outdoor Motocross portion of the event.  At the end of the week these scores are combined to crown the overall Olympiad.  The unpredictable Florida weather hindered the schedule this week, cancelling racing for the entire day of Thanksgiving, ultimately causing the promotors to cut LCQ’s out of the event, making for a cut-throat make-it-or-break-it sense of urgency each moto.

In the A/Pro classes, Garrett Marchbanks won the 450 Pro Sport in both SX and MX, this also being his debut race in the A class!  Brazilian, Enzo Lopes, was also on fire in the first half of the week with a 250 Pro Sport win in SX, yet Enzo having a bad get-off ended up unable to finish out the week.  In the B class and still new to the 250f transition, Stilez Robertson was killing it with a 250 B Limited SX championship, along with a handful of podium finishes.  Oklahoma’s Jesse Flock was also a contender in the B class all week with a 450 B Limited SX title.  JJ Jarvis was riding great in the Girls and Women’s classes as well, taking the gold in SX and MX in the Girls Sr. class, and just missing the top spot in the Women’s 14+ with 2 second place finishes, though she was chipping away at the leader each lap, but ran out of time during the reduced number of laps due to the rain delay during the week.  In the SuperMini class, Jeremy Ryan claimed the SuperMini 2 (13-16) class title in the MX half of the week.  John Grewe took a permanent residency on the podium this week!  John won 10 of his 12 motos, wrapping up all 4 Overall Olympiad titles in the 35+, 40+, 45+, and 50+.  At the end of the week John was given the Vet Masters Award, with the only blemish on his record was having the 35+ SX gold medal taken by RedDog Timmy Ferry.

Congratulations to all finishers and champions!  Below is a list of Fox team top 3 results, along with a link to full event results.
