MONSTER ENERGY AMA SUPERCROSS 2016 - TORONTO

Mar 142016

Tomac endures Toronto for top five finishMonster Energy AMA Supercross has now had three different winners in the last four rounds as the tenth fixture of the season saw Ken Roczen walk the top step of the box at the Rogers Centre and with more than 50,000 spectators in attendance in Toronto. Monster Energy Kawasaki’s Eli Tomac could not repeat his sensational performance from Daytona last Saturday in the sole non-American meeting on the SX calendar; the 23 year old ran to fifth in what was a crash-strewn 450SX Main Event. The crowd were shocked only a few seconds into the tenth Main of seventeen in the 2016 series as Yamaha’s Chad Reed clipped the rear wheel of another rider and ‘cartwheeled’ on the start straight and before entry into the first turn. The Australian, who won the inaugural supercross in Toronto in 2008, escaped serious injury but was out of the running. Justin Bogle, vying for the lead, then made a mistake in the first rhythm section and collected a host of riders with his fall, including the likes of Anaheim 1 victor Jason Anderson. Carnage ensued but Tomac, champion Ryan Dungey, KTM teammate Marvin Musquin and Roczen were able to emerge unscathed. Dungey made a rare mistake and lost the front end of the 450SX-F that handed the initiative to Roczen as Tomac faded slightly.
