Anaheim, CA- At the first round of the Monster Energy Supercross, nerves were high and the questions lingered in the air. Suzuki team riders Bobby Kiniry, Shane Sewell and Ben Evans all put in good showings in the chilly California night.

Kiniry and Evans both qualified for the Lites main event but didn’t have the greatest luck once the gate dropped. Like, they had really, really bad luck. At the end of lap one, they were actually last and next to last after a first turn crash and their work was cut out for them. Kiniry soldiered on all the way up to 13th and Evans had a few more encounters with the ground and eventually ended up 18th.

Sewell wasn’t able to make the 450 main event but put in a good showing on his way to missing the final by only four spots. It was a great ride considering that Shane only had a day on the bike after being a late fill-in for this race.

“It’s the first round and oftentimes, things get a little buck-wild out there. I’m glad our guys our safe and they put in a good showing” said team manager Forrest Butler “We’ll have our rock, Jason Thomas  back for round two this weekend and that will help.”

Speaking of JT$, the Suzuki team would like to congratulate “The Rolling Tank” on his German SX championship which he clinched over the weekend. Great job JT, now come back here and try to win this championship if you think you’re so good.
