The Others...SD

When Monster Energy Supercross roles in to San Diego, it brings a special feeling. Round 6 would traditionally serve as a military appreciation. This round is awesome! From the city feels of Petco Park to the one off gear and graphics, the riders, crews and teams do justice to the cause. 

I’d like to break it down like normal but have to go all out and say JGR Suzuki’s Justin Hill may have got his groove back. Gone from last season and last weeks podium may have lit the fire. He’d be the fastest qualifier among the 250 class, win his heat and go on to a well deserved Main Event victory. The Pro Circuit Kawasaki of Adam Cianciarulo made him work for it on his way to second, while rookie Chase Sexton put his Geico Honda on the box in third.

Another guy ready to prove himself is Rockstar Husqvarna’s Jason Anderson. The haters are still out there and I’d be lying if a part of me didn’t think that we’re yet to see a “throw away” round from the number 21. Good news for him, the competition hasn’t been helping themselves any with their championship fights. Eli Tomac was the 450 class fastest qualifier aboard his Monster Energy Kawasaki but come Main Event time would find himself last on the result sheet. The speed is there, the results have not been. A pair of KTM’s in the names of Marvin Musquin and Blake Baggett would finish second and third respectively. 

Redemption. Making just one Main Event can give you that feeling of belonging. Adam Enticknap belongs in Mains. After making the first three, he’s miss two in a row. The 722 would put himself back in the Main Event and go on to finish 16th at Round 6. We’ve also got to give a big shout out to Tyler Bowers. Bowers got the deck very hard last week and any normal human being would have at the least taken a week off to regroup. The number 69 would finish 14th on the night.

Rider: Adam Enticknap

Sometimes shit just hits the fan. San Diego provided great racing, it also claimed a good amount of riders to the injured list. Some worse than others as we wish this list of guys a healthy and speedy recovery: Jake Weimer (wrist), Ken Roczen (hand), Alex Ray (knee), Justin Bogle (arm), Jesse Pettis (shoulder), Justin Hoeft (both legs), Dakota Tedder(leg), Connor Pearson (unknown).
