WATCH THE 2021 HOUSTON SUPERCROSS 2 450 MAIN IN UNDER 3 MINUTES
The shifting tides of Houston giveth and taketh. On Saturday, Eli Tomac couldn’t crack the top ten, but on Tuesday he got a better start than normal, benefitted from crashes that took out Adam Cianciarulo and impressive Chase Sexton and looked like the Eli we expected to see last Saturday. Now, we wait for this coming Saturday to see if Justin Barcia can bounce back from breaking his shifter against a Tuff Block and having to race the 450 main in first gear. Or if Adam Cianciarulo can turn all of that blazing speed into a victory instead of a crash. Or how Sexton feels after his hard hit. Or, if Dylan Ferrandis can keep surviving as many close calls as he did at Houston 2. But, no matter the ups and down of the big title contenders, 36-year old Justin Brayton, riding for the Australian Muc-Off Honda team, put himself on the podium. That’s a special moment.
