2019 DENVER SUPERCROSS RESULTS: 250 QUALIFYING

Pro Circuit Kawasaki’s Adam Cianciarulo came to Denver with the weight of a whole season on his back and only the thin comfort of a 5-point lead. He was being stalked by Star Yamaha’s Dylan Ferrandis, who turned his winless streak into a two-race run with consecutive wins in Seattle and Houston. Colt Nichols, also riding for Star Yamaha, had his own pressure to prove his season-opening win at Anaheim One was no fluke. There are two races left, including this one, so stage is set for an epic run to the finish in what has been a wild season.

250 HEAT ONE

Cameron McAdoo was the first man to the turn, but Colt Nichols came out ahead. Jimmy Decotis came on strong in the next few laps. He closed on Nichols, but never got close enough to really make a challenge. Behind those two it was close between McAdoo, Sean Cantrell and Robby Wageman. Eventually, Wageman passed Cantrell  for fourth. Bradley Lionnet also passed Contrell. Nichols got the win and clearly felt good about it. “I just feel great. I’m trying to enjoy this process a little more.”

250 HEAT TWO

 

Heat two had both title contenders, perhaps to give a preview of the main event. Dylan Ferrandis and Adam Cianciarulo came off the line behind RJ Hampshire. Ferrandis  made a mistake on the second lap and Cianciarulo passed him, then immediately closed on Hampshire. Cianciarulo later passed Hampshire in the same corner and began to pull away. Ferrandis had a much harder time with Hampshire. He made a few attempts to get past the Honda rider, but failed to close the deal by the end of the race.

250 LAST CHANCE QUALIFIER

Garrett Marchbanks blew a motor in his heat, and the Pro Circuit Kawasaki team had to install a back-up motor in very little time. It was all very reminiscent of Eli Tomac at Nashville. Marchbanks made it into the Last Chance Qualifier and had very little trouble winning the race over Chris Blose, Enzo Lopes and Blaine Silverira.

250 COMBINED QUALIFYING

After the snow stopped, all the 250 riders stepped it up. Colt Nichols, Dylan Ferrandis and Adam Cianciarulo all leapfrogged each other with faster and faster times. Finally, it was red-plate holder Cianciarulo who finished on top of the board. All the riders were close, though, and the laps times were unusually short, meaning the heats and races will see more laps than normal.
