2020 ANAHEIM 2 RESULTS: 450 QUALIFYING UPDATED

Angel Stadium in Anaheim played host to Monster Energy Supercross for the second time in the young 2020 season this weekend, and the 450 field is as thick as ever. Previous winners Justin Barcia and Ken Roczen are facing off again, but the men up front after all the qualifying was complete were once again the Kawasaki guys, just as we have seen in the previous rounds. Adam Cianciarulo and Eli Tomac were the fastest on a track that had especially difficult whoop section. Martin Davalos was fastest in the first session, but dropped back to ninth when time ran out in session two. Davalos, who rode extremely in off-season Euro Supercrosses, has yet to show what he can do stateside in the 450 class. At A2, the Ecuadorian rider might change that.

450 HEAT 1

Eli Tomac and Cooper Webb were up front from the start of heat one. There was a pile up in the first turn that took out several riders including Justin Brayton. First Tomac was leading, then Webb was in front, then Tomac was in front again. Dean Wilson was a solid third ahead of Justin Barcia and Tyler Bowers. Before long, Brayton managed to get himself back up into a transfer spot with Chad Reed right behind him. Tomac stretched it out on every lap with Webb riding a lonely second place. Wilson, in the meantime, had his hands full with Barcia. In the later laps, most of the action was watching Brayton pick off a few more spots, eventually coming to a stop behind Benny Bloss in seventh. Tomac won, looking like his old self. On the final lap, Justin Hill passed Reed for the final transfer.

450 HEAT TWO

Adam Cianciarulo and Zach Osborne were side by side through the first turn with Cianciarulo eventually taking over. Osborne then got bumped around and let Ken Roczen, Jason Anderson and Justin Bogle past.  Malcolm Stewart and Aaron Plessinger were having a battle for sixth, with Stewart showing amazing speed in the whoops. Up front, Cianciarulo and Roczen were hammering each other for the lead, with Anderson slowly slipping back. Halfway through the race, Roczen took over but Cianciarulo didn’t give up. For a full lap, it was unclear which way it would go, but eventually Roczen began to open it up. While that was going on, Stewart was up solidly in fourth with Martin Davalos in  fifth. Roczen won over Cianciarulo by two seconds.

450 LCQ

All eyes were on Chad Reed in the last chance qualifier, but it was Jason Clermont in front initially. Near the end of the fist lap Clermont went down and gave it to Ryan Breece. Reed got a poor start, but got up to second very quickly, and then he took the lead at the halfway point of the short race. Kyle Cunningham looked good in third until he fell with two laps to go. At the flag, it was  Reed, Blose, Breece and Alex Ray. It would be Reed’s 252nd main event.
