ANAHEIM 1 250 UPDATED RESULTS: JUSTIN COOPER STRIKES FIRST!

The first Supercross of the 2020 season is in the books now and it was eventful. In the 250 class, three riders separated themselves from everyone else: Pro Circuit Kawasaki’s Austin Forkner and Star Yamaha teammates Justin Cooper and Dylan Ferrandis. Ferrandis was fast all night at Anaheim, setting fastest lap and winning his heat, but after the gate dropped in the main event, he found all his fastest rivals in front of him. Justin Cooper got in front early, with Austin Forkner passing him for the lead on the first lap. Then the  two of them pulled a slight lead over Christian Craig while Ferrandis worked his way up. On lap eight, Ferrandis moved into third, but he had a good seven seconds to make up before he could join the Forkner/Cooper battle in front. With four laps to go, Forkner fell and remounted, but was apparently disoriented and entered the wrong section of the track, cutting off a turn. After that, the running order was Cooper, Ferrandis, Forkner, Christian Craig and Michael Mosiman. That’s how they finished, prior to any intervention from the referee. After a short debate, Forkner’s finish was adjusted to fifth place. For extended coverage of Anaheim 1, click here.

The first heat got underway with Alex Martin in front. It wasn’t long before both Austin Forkner and Justin Cooper were on him, pushing hard. They came together with Forkner getting the worse end of the deal and going down. In the very next section, Cooper passed Martin for the lead and then pulled away. Forkner recovered to earn third ahead of  Derek Drake. Back in ninth place, Derek Kelley and Mitchell Falk battled for the final transfer spot with Kelley coming out on top.

The second heat of 2020 got under way with Christian Craig getting the holeshot. The only bad news for him was that Dylan Ferrandis got an uncharacteristically good start. Ferrandis quickly took the lead and was unchallenged all the way to the finish. Martin Castelo and Mitchell Oldenburg came together while running near the front, and the two would spend the rest of the race battling for the final transfer spot. Cameron McAdoo and Brandon Hartranft worked their way forward throughout the race and ended up third and fourth.

250 LCQ

Michael Mosiman got a huge holeshot in the Last Chance Qualifier, trying to vindicate himself for his heat race crash. He checked out, leaving Mitchell Falk for hold off the rest of the pack in second. Eventually, Falk got a little breathing room. In the end, Logan Karnow was third, and Chris Howell  earned a place in the main event by bumping Taichi Koga out of the way in the last turn.
