THE AFTERMATH | 2018 OAKLAND SUPERCROSS
Monster Energy Supercross, an FIM World Championship, hosted Round 5 of the 2018 season in front of a crowd of 48,146 fans inside Oakland-Alameda County Coliseum. The track was the most challenging terrain this season. The riders made lots of mistakes by cross rutting and getting off balance. Just about every rider that was interviewed were happy to say that they got through this race healthy. Below is how the race went through photos and captions. Enjoy.
Marviun Musquin enters through the podium in his Thor Racing custom “Cat” gear.
Chase Sexton would cross the line in 3rd.
Justin Barcia was on another level in Oakland. He was the fastest 450 qualifier with a lap time of 51.789. He also won his heat race by jumping straight to the front. Second place was his factory Yamaha teammate, Cooper Webb.
After all the heats were through, it was time for the LCQ’s. Unfortunately, we would see front runner Mitchell Harrison (#30) on the line. But no worries, he clinched it easily. He would qualify alongside Justin Starling, Julio Zambrano and Chase Marqueir.
The Oakland Supercross event was very fast paced throughout the evening/night program. Before we knew it, the 250 guys were already lined up for their final race of the evening. This is a shot of the mechanics awaiting their que to load the gates.
Back to the front of the pack. Eventually, Christian Craig would make the pass on Alex Martin and take the lead. After about five minutes into the 250 main, he would jump off the track accidentally and fall back to 4th giving Aaron Plessinger the lead.
