This past weekend marked the start of the 2019 Supercross series. The stage was set in Anaheim, California to see what the New Year would bring the top supercross riders in the world.

In the 450 Class, we would see Ken Roczen and Chad Reed lining up, as well as Adam Cianciarulo and Garrett Marchbanks lining up in the 250 class.

Team Geico Honda rider’s RJ Hampshire and Cameron McAdoo would also be there in the Fox V3 helmet.

There was a chance of rain that did materialize during the second qualifying session of the day, and eventually, let up and lead into what appeared to be a dry night of racing, but it wouldn’t last long. The rain started to come down as the 450 riders lined up in their heat races.

In the 450 class, Ken Roczen got out to a great start in his heat race and would go on to win. Chad Reed would have to work his way through the LCQ to get into the main.

In the 450 Main, Ken was off to a good start and worked his way to the front of the pack. He would go on to finish 2nd and escape the rain at A1, earning valuable points towards the championship. Chad Reed got stuck in a first run pile up and would eventually work his way to 9th. A great finish considering the conditions.

In the 250 class, Adam got a good start in his heat and worked his way to the front to take the win. Garrett Marchbanks would finish 6th and transfer directly to the main in his supercross debut. RJ Hampshire won his heat race and transferred directly to the main.

In the 250 Main, AC appeared to have the holeshot but lost control going into the first turn and nearly crashed. He eventually worked his way back to the front of the pack. However, a mid-race collision with RJ Hampshire would push him back. He put on another charge and finished the race in 5th. RJ finished in 4th, Garrett Marchbanks in 6th and Cameron McAdoo in 11th.

On to Phoenix this weekend!
