Race Report: AMA Supercross Anahiem I
// January 7th, 2014 // Supercross
The opening round of the 2014 AMA Supercross season was a little rough. I had some trouble in qualifying both with the bike and with myself, I transferred 19th into the night program. In my heat race I hit a neutral right outside of the gate, I rounded the first turn in dead last. While working my way through the pack I ran into the rear tire of another racer in the whoops, I went down hard and was unable to finish the race. I pulled some muscles in my back in the crash making it very hard for me to ride the rest of the night.
We got my bike back together and I lined up ALmost last for the LCQ. I got off to a 4th place start and rode their for the entire race securing myself a transfer into the main event. I had bike trouble and could not get my bike fired on the starting line, I couldn’t get out for the parade lap and after bump starting my bike i made it to the line only 12 seconds before the gate dropped. Needless to stay I got a horrible start. I tried to ride constant laps in there main but the pain in my back made it very difficult to put in fast laps. I ended up finishing in 20th. Im glad to get though the first round without any serious injury and am looking forward the rest of the series.
