On January 3rd, the first gate dropped on the 2015 Supercross
season, and surprises jumped out of the gate with the racers. The
250cc class had aggressive riding from the beginning, with Pro Circuit
Kawasaki’s Tyler Bowers and Rockstar Husqvarna’s Zach Osborne
getting together in heat number one. Star Racing Yamaha’s Cooper
Webb and Motorsports Josh Hansen rubbed elbows later in the program. Troy Lee Designs’ KTM rider Jessy Nelson checked out in the
main event, taking home his first career 250cc Supercross win, with
Zach Osborne and Tyler Bowers rounding out the podium. In the
premier class, RCH Suzuki rider Ken Roczen
smoked everyone, getting the lead early
and leaving the rest of the field
to fight for second place. Jason
Anderson put his Rockstar
Husqvarna on the podium
in second place, and Trey
Canard edged out Ryan
Dungey to put his Honda
on the podium in third
place. The 2015 season
looks to be very exciting.
