Super Spoiler: San Diego
A brief summary of the action from San Diego
It seems that the Monster Energy AMA Supercross series gets more interesting with each passing round, and San Diego was no exception.
In the Lites main, Vince Friese nabbed the holeshot, but Dean Wilson wasted no time in taking the lead away. Wilson proceeded to check out, and led every single lap of the race en route to his second victory of the year. Behind him, carnage. Musquin went down after colliding with Tomac, who bobbled on a reverse dragon’s back, and over the next few laps, it seemed like there were riders down in just about every section. Jason Anderson, Martin Davalos, Marvin Musquin, Eli Tomac, and a host of other riders all hit the dirt. Tomac’s crash was especially costly, as it resulted in a DNF. The crash came when Tomac was charging through the whoops in third place. The result? A complete shakeup in the points, with Wilson as the series’ new points leader. Cole Seely took second, with Matt Moss rounding out the podium.
When the gate dropped for the supercross main, Metcalfe rocketed out of the gate to take the holeshot. Behind him were Jake Weimer, Ryan Villopoto, Chad Reed, James Stewart, Ryan Dungey and Kevin Windham. Several laps into the race, Villopoto had moved into the lead, followed by Reed. Reed kept RV in sight, but wasn’t close enough to challenge. Then, in the closing stages of the race, the two ran into lapped traffic and Reed started reeling Villopoto in. Reed was able to make a move stick, only to see RV get him back with one lap to go. RV held onto the lead for the win, followed by Reed, Dungey, Metcalfe, and Josh Hansen.
James Stewart ran as high as third, but he went down in the whoops and became entangled in his bike. He lost a lot of time before remounting, and could only charge back to fifteenth. Windham was riding great, and had worked his way into fourth before going down in the whoops and finishing in sixteenth. Jake Weimer had multiple crashes and pulled out after completing nine laps.
Stay tuned, a full race report will be posted soon.
