Minnesota Supercross Race Wrap Up

EE0A6322

Adam Cianciarulo made his return to racing after several years of unfortunate injuries that have set him back. It was great to see Adam get a race under his belt and prove he is still a very competitive force to be reckoned with.

EE0A6397

It is clear that Zach Osborne has stepped up his training. Riding much more aggressive and making passes early on like this one on RJ Hampshire. Zach is down in Clermont, Florida with Aldon Baker, Ryan Dungey, Marvin Musquin, and Jason Anderson. Not a bad group of people to train with.

EE0A6548

Chad Reed did not have the weekend he might have wanted. Reedy suffered a mid race crash that slammed him hard into the dirt. Chad mentioned that he had also been suffering some minor knee problems entering the Minnesota round.

EE0A6845

Alex Martin on a new team this year, got off to a bumpy start with a 2nd lap crash over the dragon’s back.

EE0A6795

It has been a while since Pro Circuit Kawasaki has been this strong in both the east and west. Can they make it a green sweep this year? Only time will tell and there are plenty of races to be had before you can jump to conclusions. There is a stacked field of riders hungry for the championship in 250 East.

EE0A6987

Jordon Smith chasing down Zach Osborne. Jordon would go onto pass him shortly after a right turn tip over in the deep ruts of Minnesota soil.

EE0A7229

With several riders already side lined it was nice to see Justin “BAM BAM” Barcia back at the races and in the mix.

EE0A6893

Jordon Smith trains at MTF in Cairo, Georgia with Colleen Millsaps. The North Carolina native came out swinging by rocket shipping his KTM 250SXF out front early on in Minnesota.

EE0A7108

Eli Tomac leading Ryan Dungey. Eli is chipping away at Ryan’s points lead but consistency is key and Ryan Dungey is a professor at landing on the box each weekend. Could it go all the way down to Las Vegas?

DI6A6297

With his first 450 victory last weekend, Marvin Musquin came into Minnesota cool, calm, and very confident. He made the pass on Dungey and made it stick by even getting a comfortable gap against his Red Bull KTM team mate.

EE0A7174

Jason Anderson on the gas in the deep sand section aboard his Factory Rockstar Racing Husqvarna FC450.

EE0A7073

First turn madness. Look how deep inside Eli tomac is and how far up the track his eyes are focused on.

EE0A7050

A man on a mission. Eli Tomac is proving he can win and win….and win again. Ryan Dungey will have to answer back if he wants to keep the championship points spread he has. The rougher and nastier the track, it seems it fits Eli’s riding style more.
