MotoSport.com/TiLUBE/Foremost Insurance SX Round 2 Race Report
RIVERSIDE, CA (January 16, 2012) While some people in Phoenix were glued to their television watching the San Francisco 49rs compete against the New Orleans Saints, Chase Field was packed with Supercross fans for the second round of the AMA Monster Energy Supercross Series.
MotoSport.com/TiLUBE/Foremost Insurance riders Chris Blose and Nick Wey arrived healthy, ready to do battle and improve on last weekend’s results.
In Supercross class heat race one, Wey got hit hard coming into the first turn but stayed upright aboard his Kawasaki 450. Unfortunately, he was not able to recover well enough to qualify directly to the main event. Blose had a good start in heat race two, rode a steady and consistent eight laps, and qualified directly to the main event. In the LCQ, Wey got a great start and was cleanly out front by the third corner. With six laps ahead of him Wey focused on riding a perfect race and did so en route to the LCQ win and spot in the main event.
When the gate dropped for the main event, both Wey and Blose charged into the first turn and found themselves about mid pack. As the first lap started to unfold, Wey slowed to avoid hitting an out of control rider. Unfortunately the rider behind Wey did not do the same, resulting in both riders going down. Wey attempted to return to the race but his motorcycle was too damaged to continue. Blose was able to make it through the first lap unscathed and in sixth position. On lap 10, while battling with Josh Hansen, Blose got pushed off the track and lost a lot of time, reentering in 15th position. Blose went on to finish 15th on the evening and Wey was awarded 19th.
“Another tough night,” said Wey following the race. “I felt that I made improvements this weekend. I am a little sore and bruised up but will for sure be ready to give it my all at Dodger Stadium next weekend.”
“I had a good start in the main and really wanted to be top ten for my hometown fans,” said Blose. “This week I am going to focus on my intensity for next weekend’s battle in Los Angeles.”
Next Saturday night the series travels to historic Dodger Stadium in Los Angeles for the third round of the Monster Energy AMA Supercross Series.
