On Social: Anaheim 2

The deal of the day on 24MX.

All Results: Anaheim 2.

The third round of the 2019 Monster Energy Supercross series, Anaheim 2, is now in the record books and opinions are being shared on the countless social-media channels. What did the riders have to say about their own races though? Social-media posts from the top twenty 450SX riders from the main event have been pulled out and placed in an easy-to-view-format below, so that you know exactly how everyone feels.

Cooper Webb

The craziness continues. Cooper Webb was undoubtedly the best rider at the third round of 2019 Monster Energy Supercross and claimed his first 450SX victory in an impressive fashion. Webb has faced plenty of adversity over the last two years, which caused some to give up hope, but has finally returned to the top and summed up that feeling with a short and sweet post.

Marvin Musquin

It is easy for Marvin Musquin to get judged unfairly at the moment, as most forget that he entered the current term underprepared and nursing a knee injury. The way that he has improved across the first three rounds has been truly remarkable, bearing that in mind, so how will he fare when he reaches one hundred percent? It’s interesting to think about.

Ken Roczen

Although Ken Roczen fell off of the podium at the third round of 2019 Monster Energy Supercross, it was still a productive day and one that enabled him to double his series lead. Following a crash in the second main event, when he was charging towards the front, things could have really unravelled, yet he kept a cool head and salvaged important points.

Dean Wilson

Although the last two rounds have not been quite as spectacular for Dean Wilson, he is having a solid time of it and is just eleven points out of the series lead at this point! Who saw that coming? Wilson appeared to be in the thick of the battles all-night long at A2 and couldn’t shake Chad Reed off in mains one and three. ’15’ entered the top five in the end though!

Cole Seely

Cole Seely has not exactly stolen headlines through the first three rounds of 2019 Monster Energy Supercross, but there have been flashes of brilliance at points that are certainly encouraging. There were more of those in Anaheim, although he struggled to seal the deal. That is to be expected after such a long hiatus though.

Aaron Plessinger

Anaheim 2 was another promising event for Aaron Plessinger, who is quickly becoming a fan favourite in the 450SX division. It just seems like he needs to work on his starts now, but that will come and he will continue to improve with more bike time too. Remember that he missed time with a back injury in the off-season!

Joey Savatgy

Joey Savatgy was seemingly disappointed with his eighth-place finish at Anaheim 2, but he was not even racing seven days ago. This was a huge step in the right direction for the Monster Energy Kawasaki pilot, who has had a horrid start to the campaign, but he seemingly wants so much more…

Vince Friese

Vince Friese is one of the riders who most expect to excel at Triple-Crown events, yet Anaheim 2 did not really go as planned. Friese was consistent though and has identified his greatest issue: Starts. Interestingly, that is exactly what is holding Justin Brayton back too.

Justin Bogle

Although this MX Vice interview with Justin Bogle was completed prior to the third round, there are so many points that still apply. It is a step-by-step process for Bogle, who came in so underprepared, and Anaheim 2 was another consistent outing for him. It’ll take time for him to edge closer to the top ten.

Alex Ray

Alex Ray has picked up where he left off a year ago, despite the fact that he is on a different bike and racing in a field that is arguably much deeper. Now, admittedly, Anaheim 2 did not go too well for him, but just making mains consistently is a massive step forward from where he was two years ago.
