This Week in Monster Energy Supercross: Race 11 in Detroit, MI

Monster Energy Supercross_031816

450SX Class

  • It’s in the Start: In each of his three wins this season, Ken Roczen has started either first or second.
  • Best Ever: Ryan Dungey posted his 26th straight podium result in Toronto, setting a new all-time consecutive podium record. Coincidentally, the third-place finish was Dungey’s worst of 2016.
  • Shut Out: For the first time this season Dungey has gone consecutive races without leading a single lap. He still has 20 more laps led than Roczen, who is second on the stats sheet.
  • Front Runner: While four riders have finished inside the top 10 at every race this season, only Dungey has also finished inside the top five each time. He’s also the only rider with a top-10 start in every Main Event thus far.
  • Flying Frenchman: Marvin Musquin posted his third consecutive podium finish in Toronto. His string of strong results is a direct result of his improved starts, which have been fifth or better the last three weeks. Any time he’s started fifth or better, Musquin has been on the podium.
  • Mr. Resilient: Jason Anderson has passed more riders on the track than anyone else this season, averaging an improvement of 4.3 positions a race. After crashing on the first lap in Toronto Anderson had his worst start of the season in 18th, but still broke into the top 10 to finish ninth.
  • Add Another to the List: Justin Bogle became the 20th different rider this season to transfer directly into the Main Event from his Heat Race.

Eastern Regional 250SX Class

  • Three-for-Three: The Eastern Region has three different winners through its first three races.
  • Upward Trend: Justin Hill has improved his finishing position in each race, leading up to his win last weekend. He’s the only rider in the top 10 to do so.
  • Never Quit: Jeremy Martin passed 17 riders in Toronto to earn an impressive runner-up finish after being involved in a first-turn crash. It was the most riders any single competitor has passed in a Main Event this season.
  • First Time: With his second-place finish Martin took over the points lead. He will carry the red number plate for the first time. Currently, Yamalube/Star Racing Yamaha leads both the Eastern and Western Regional Championships.
  • Built to Endure: Occupying the top two spots in the point standings, Martin and Hill have passed an average of 8.3 and 7.6 riders, respectively, in three Main Events.
  • Six Pack: Matt Bisceglia’s third-place finish in Toronto made him the sixth different rider to finish on the podium in the first three races.
  • Back in Action: Former points leader Martin Davalos will return to the track in Detroit after missing the last race, which dropped him to fourth in points.
