2020 Atlanta Supercross_450 Main Start Ken Roczen-8248


The 450SX class is shaping up to be an exciting one at the 2020 Atlanta Supercross. Eli Tomac has been a new man in the 2020 Monster Energy Supercross series, he’s more consistent now, he’s getting better starts and he currently has the points lead coming into round nine. Ken Roczen has been quick as well and with two wins this season and only a seven-point deficit between he and Eli, Ken is right there and in the fight for the title. Cooper Webb had a big get off last weekend in Arlington which resulted in a hematoma and bone bruising on his pelvis and sacrum, but after rehabbing it all week long, Cooper Webb is back on the bike again in Atlanta and he’s going to give it his all.

Ken Roczen grabbed the holeshot with Eli Tomac and Cooper Webb buried back in the pack. Martin Davalos, Vince Friese and Justin Hill ran in second, third and forth early. On lap two Jason Anderson and Justin Barcia passed Tomac, but then Tomac passed Barcia right back in the next corner. Then, Eli Tomac went in for a super aggressive move on Blake Baggett and he took both himself and Baggett out. That dropped Tomac back to 14th. At the halfway point, it was Ken Roczen who had the lead with Martin Davalos and Justin Hill rounding out the podium with Vince Friese in fourth. Finally, with just six and half minutes to go, Justin Barcia was able to pass both Vince Friese and Justin Hill to get into third. Then, Jason Anderson bobbled coming into the turn before the whoops and he took out Vince Friese and Dean Wilson at the same time allowing Cooper Webb to move into fifth and Tomac to move into seventh. Cooper Webb had Anderson all over him until Jason took the inside in the corner before the sand and he pushed Cooper out of the way. Then, Jason Anderson got passed Hill, but Justin Hill pushed him wide which caused Jason to miss the triple in the rhythm section and allow Cooper and Eli to pass Anderson. Then, Cooper and Eli both passed Justin Hill to get into fourth and fifth. Then, on the final lap Cooper Webb and Eli Tomac both passed Martin Davalos on the last lap and Cooper grabbed third place and Tomac fourth. Click here for the updated point standings.
