AMA Supercross Round 8 - Georgia Dome - Atlanta Georgia

450 Main Event:

A super tough weekend for early series leader and FOX MX rider Ken Roczen. Unfortunately Kenny took a nasty spill early on which resulted in him flying off the track and hitting a wall before crashing hard. How Roczen didn’t break a bone remains a mystery, but all we can put it down to is his protective gear and his FOX Instinct boots!

Kenny Emerged in pain but continued on to race the main event. A poor start though saw him buried in the pack and a number of laps into the main while trying to work his way back up through the field Roczen came unstuck again through the whoops and was ejected from his RM-Z 450 in another spectacular crash. Again Kenny got up, shook himself off and finished the race in 18th. Such a gritty ride and a true indication of just what riders go through when chasing a championship win.

On the other side of the coin Chad Reed came out of the gates swinging! Although heading into the first corner a few spots down, his inside line saw him take the holeshot on the turn exit and launch into an early lead. From there Reed didn’t put a foot wrong as he lead the entire 20 laps, even lapping Davi Millsaps who finished in 12th place.

Dungey and Canard Rounded out the podium and Canard moves just in front of Roczen into second in the championship.

250 Main Event:

Martin Davalos blasted out of the gate on his Husky for the holeshot, Bogle drifted wide on the exit of the turn and shut the door on Jeremy Martin. Martin dropped back to around 10th after the first straight and definitely had his work cut out for him!

Davalos seemed to lose rhythm as the pack closed in on him and a four way battle emerged for the lead. Martin was on the charge though and picked his way through the four riders to take his second AMA supercross win of his career.

Davalos could not hold the others off and was slowly picked off by series leader Marvin Musquin and Justin Bogle. Martin now moves to 4 points behind Marvin with Bogle only 1 point behind in 3rd place. With the top 3 riders looking on point, the east coast championship is starting to heat up heading into Atlanta #2 At the Georgia Dome. Get ready for all of the old school bikes and gear as it is 90’s theme!

Can Martin build on this week and hunt down Musquin?
