Oakland SX Race Recap
For the 4th round of the 2019 Supercross Series, we headed to the California Bay for the Oakland Supercross. When the dust settled, we had a new points leader.
Ken Roczen #94
After a clean start, Ken rolled to a 2nd place finish in Heat Race Two. In the main, he didn’t have the best start. From mid-pack, he worked his way towards the front and soon found himself in 2nd. However, he would fade in the closing laps and finish 4th. The last couple passes would cost him the point lead, and he will head to San Diego two points behind the new leader, Cooper Webb.
Chad Reed #22
A great start landed Chad in the lead group of Heat Race Two. He road in control and finish 4th to qualify for the main. Sadly, Chad didn’t get the same start in the main. Working from deep in the pack, he was fast enough to move up to the 9th position.
Adam Cianciarulo #92
After a poor start, Adam found himself deep in the pack in Heat Race Two, but he worked back to finish in 3rd. For the main, Adam didn’t grab the holeshot but managed to pass two riders in the first rhythm (McAdoo & Nichols) to take the lead. After that impressive pass, he controlled most of the race and kept Nichols at bay just enough to keep a true pass attempt from happening. Adam had his share of close calls due to the pressure from Nichols but maintained his compose and took his second win of the season.
Garrett Marchbanks #61
Garrett was looking forward to Oakland after a tough night at A2. He finished 7th in Heat Race Two and had a solid ride in the main to finish 8th.
Cameron McAdoo #44
After a good start, Cameron took the lead and led Heat Race One for 3 laps. However, he would settle for 2nd after a decisive pass from Decotis with only two laps left. In the main, Cameron was 1st at turn-two but was rapidly passed by AC. He had a strong ride and finish 6th.
Rj Hampshire #31
Rj emerged from the first turn in the lead and set the pace through the opening laps. A mistake would see him finish 4th in Heat Race Two. In the main, Rj had a decent start - 4th after the first lap. However, he had a tough final and finished 13th.
