THE AFTERMATH: ANAHEIM II
Musquin and his lite up Leatt neck brace in opening ceremonies.
We didn’t see much of Jason Anderson in Anaheim because he got DQ’ed after his run in with Vince Friese (Friese is always considered guilty, even when he isn’t because of his past record for dirty riding). Check out what happened between the two by clicking HERE.
Ryan Dungey pleasing the crowd during opening ceremonies.
Aaron Plessinger means business. In the first heat he pinched off Shane Mcelrath in the first corner and went on to win.
Shane rode with more caution in A2. He did what he needed to do and got his KTM/Troy Lee Designs 250SXF on the podium.
In Dungey’s heat race, something went wrong with his throttle and he had to pull off. In his semi, he started on the very outside gate. He got off to a bad start, but worked his way up to third behind Marvin Musquin and Broc Tickle.
Josh Grant got off to a good start in 4th. A few guys got around him ending up in 6th. Not a bad night for Grant.
In 450 main event, Marvin kept an eye on his teammate Dungey. He closed up the gap later in the race. Marvin wants to win.

Justin Hill has found his stride. He was the fastest 250 rider all day.
All smiles for Hill.
Tommy Hahn finished 17th on the night.
This was the first race that Ken Roczen got off to a bad start. He started in 7th and worked up to 3rd by lap five. His teammate Cole Seely wasn’t making it easy for Roczen. Roczen started switching up his lines. In a rhythm section, is looked as if Roczen hit a small kicker which bottomed out his rear shock. It pogoed up, sling-shotting him off the bike. Roczen is known for setting up his shock with minimal rebound. The same thing happened to him at Monster Cup. Kenny ended up with a dislocated wrist, dislocated elbow and compounded radius bone in his wrist. Click HERE to watch the crash.
