Supercross Round Four: Anaheim

Jan 312022

Monster Energy athletes swept the fucking podium for the 450 class at Anaheim’s Angels Stadium.

Missed it? Here’s the recap:



450 Class 1st Place: Eli Tomac (Monster Energy/Star Racing/Yamaha) extending his lead in overall point standings.


450 Class 2nd Place: Chase Sexton (Honda)


450 Class 3rd Place: Jason Anderson (Monster Energy/Kawasaki)


450 Class 4th Place: Dylan Ferrandis (Monster Energy/Star Racing/Yamaha)


After his first-place victory, Eli Tomac couldn’t be more revved for more wins in the future. “This is a testament to what we have going on at Monster Energy/Star Racing/Yamaha, and the group of people behind me. We’ve been inching forward every week, getting closer and closer. And we finally went out and got the top spot. I had so much fun out there tonight and I couldn’t be happier with our finish.”


Chase Sexton, who put up the fastest timed qualifying lap of the day (1:03.04), felt strong in the main event. “Overall I’m feeling more comfortable. I’ve taken it back to when I was a kid, and just having fun with it. Before I felt like I was holding on for dear life. Now I’m comfy with it. It’s always been a dream of mine to be in this position. Last year was a struggle for me. This year I feel like a whole different rider.”



250 West 1st Place: Christian Craig (Monster Energy/Star Racing/Yamaha)


For the 250 class, Monster Energy/Star Racing/Yamaha’s Christian Craig reclaimed first, after placing third last week in San Diego.  By winning Round 4, Craig holds 11 points over the rest of the 250 class.


Craig, who not only won four heat races in a row but also was the fastest qualifier four straight times, took advantage of his No. 1 gate pick and launched his YZ250F upfront immediately, pursuing race leader Michael Mosiman. With a 2.29 second lead, Mosiman looked to be in charge, unless you looked at Craig’s lap times – which were a full 6/10ths of a second faster during the pursuit.


“That was so much fun, I’d never really done that before (in regards to his battle with Mosiman). I heard the crowd every time I got close. Eventually made the pass stick and tried to ride away with it. Definitely a lot of fun tonight.”
