Monster Energy AMA Supercross arrives in St. Louis, Missouri, with the respective title races headed in opposite directions. Rockstar Energy Husqvarna’s Jason Anderson has held a firm grip on the 450SX points lead for a number of weeks, and despite a season-worst seven place finish at Daytona last Saturday, he’s still 40 points clear of training partner, Marvin Musquin.
Meanwhile, in the 250SX East Region, things are heating up. With his win in Daytona, Troy Lee Designs/Red Bull KTM’s Jordon Smith has made the championship a three-rider sprint to the finish. Monster Energy/Pro Circuit Kawasaki youngster Austin Forkner is now tied with defending champion Zach Osborne at the top of the points after his third consecutive podium last Saturday.
We’re back in a more “traditional” supercross setting following the more outdoor-style Daytona. The over/under bridge is back and it splits the start reminiscent of 2005. Check out the track map below for the full layout, and read Jason Thomas’ excellent column breaking down the track from earlier this week.
In other news, French rider Thomas Ramette got the surprise call to fill in at Monster Energy/Yamalube/Star Racing Yamaha. The team is without Dylan Ferrandis and Colt Nichols for the remainder of supercross. In other injury news, the 250 Class continues to lose top riders, as both RJ Hampshire and Jimmy Decotis are out for the remainder of supercross due to crashes in Daytona.
