16° Monster Energy AMA Supercross Series 2013 – Salt Lake City

SX 250

Unbelievable at Rice-Eccles Stadium, Salt Lake city: Roczen does not make it to the Main Event and complicates his quest for the Championship in the Season Finale in Las Vegas. However Tomac does not take full advantage, he could re-take the championship lead, but finishes only in 6th, cutting his delay from Roczen to 5 points only. Roczen is out of Heat 1for a mechanical (engine) and in the LCQ he falls again and finishes 3rd. In the Main event Tomac has a good start, 2nd behind Zach Osborne with the holeshot and tries to control, however the stress and weight of the great opportunity for him with Roczen out get him: in the second lap he makes a rookie mistake with Anderson passing him and right after Osborne too. But Tomac’s hard night is not over yet, in the 5th lap Davalos (Pro Circuit – Kawasaki) passes him and with half race to go Tomac finds himself in 9th. He tries to race his way back to a better position and finishes 6th. Anderson for his maiden SX win with Seely and Davalos on the podium

SX 450

The Red Devil takes 3rd AMA Supercross Title in a row. The season started slowly, but then Villopoto has shown all of his immense talent. With six wins, two second places he was able to reduce the gap from Millsaps, which at a certain point seemed impossible to make up and wins the title with one race to go. Race report: Dungey for the holeshot with Villopoto and Millsaps following; Villopoto knows it’s his day and after two turns is leading and putting more seconds between him and Millsaps who need two more laps to pass Dungey. Villopoto seems calm and firmly in control of the race but with 4 laps to go the race is open again with the riders delayed by a lap slowing him down until the chasers are on him; the race is now full of suspense and Millsaps closes in at every section. Villopoto does not give up and shows why he’s the reigning Champion finishing 1st and claims his 3rd AMA SX Championship.
