SALT LAKE CITY SUPERCROSS 1: THE 250 EAST GETS A NEW WINNER & JAPAN A HERO
Pro Circuit Kawasaki’s Jo Shimoda makes history by being the first Japanese rider to win an AMA 250 Supercross. Not to mention the history made in Salt Lake by having a Last Chance Qualifier where only 5 riders finish it, out the 7 that started. Right off the bat, the video starts with Christian Craig’s qualifying crash that ended his hopes of winning the 250 East crown and ends with Colt Nichols getting enough points to easily win the 250 East title next Saturday.
SALT LAKE CITY SUPERCROSS 1: MARVIN DOESN’T CRACK UNDER THE PRESSURE
Movin’ Marv finally scored the “W” that he need to get that “courtesy year” added to his KTM contract for 2022. Musquin has struggled in 2021 with crashes and a big concussion and when you add that on top of the fact that he sat out the 2020 season after a knee operation, his win was well deserved and applauded. As for Cooper Webb, he does what he does late in a moto. Cooper took advantage of every other rider’s mistakes to get in the position to take the win, but Marvin didn’t make any mistakes. As for Ken Roczen, he does what he does late in a moto. Ken had a repeat of last week’s Salt Lake City 2 Supercross. He had a big lead, but couldn’t keep his bike on two wheels. Malcolm Stewart got his first-ever 450 class podium and was the happiest an in the stadium.
