Monster Energy AMA Supercross returned to Anaheim on Saturday night for the third and final stop to Angel Stadium and Round 5 of 17. Monster Energy/Pro Circuit/Kawasaki’s Martin Davalos accomplished his best finish of the season landing in second in the 250SX main event. After a heat race win, Davalos got a great start in the main event and chased the leader for the entire 15 laps to score his second podium of the season. Monster Energy Kawasaki’s Villopoto overcame a pile up on the first lap to finish eighth and remain in the championship hunt. Teammate Jake Weimer was also caught up in a first lap crash and was unable to finish the main event, while Tyla Rattray encountered problems and was unable to qualify for the main event.

Round three of the Monster Energy AMA Supercross, an FIM World Championship series returned to Angel Stadium of Anaheim in sunny Southern California for the second time this season. Honda riders enjoyed the limelight once more with Team Honda Muscle Milk’s Trey Canard finishing in second place, putting him within 3 points of the series leader. Last weeks winner Justin Barcia crashed early in the main event and was unable to finish the race. Muscle Milk-sponsored GEICO Honda’s Eli Tomac nailed down his third consecutive victory in the 250 Supercross class, while fan favorite Kevin Windham shocked the industry and his many fans by announcing his retirement during the opening ceremonies, ending his 19th pro season.
Round three of the Monster Energy Supercross series went very well for the Troy Lee Designs/Lucas Oil/Honda squad. All three riders had flashes of brilliance at times, and team leader Cole Seely led much of the main event before finishing third.
The first heat race looked good for holeshot artist Jessy Nelson. After another one of his patented starts he slid into the second position and looked to be holding it comfortably. But a mistimed jump in a rhythm section sent him to the ground, and ultimately to the LCQ.

Round two of the west coast supercross series blasted off Saturday night in the cold desert of Phoenix, Arizona. The track was a mix of slick, hard pack soil and soft, rutty turns. It made for a very technical course and the Troy Lee Designs riders were up for the challenge.
