Report | (Atlanta) Supercross 2012

Here we are in late February, and the Supercross troop has completed its West Coast swing and has moved east. The visit to the Georgia Dome in Atlanta is constantly one of the royal gems of the arrangement, and 2012’s visit was no special case, with a sold out horde of more than 71,000 fans, and some incredible hustling activity. The turns and turns of a full season are dependably past forecast, however Ryan Villopoto has been the man to beat so far in 2012. Would he expand his lead here in Atlana? Or on the other hand did one of the others in the field have what it took to begin a rally? We found our solutions and additionally amid a fabulous headliner that had the rat swarm on its feet and asking for additional.

The East Lites title got going a week ago in Dallas, and the current year’s yield of racers would seem to have all that it takes for an energizing season. As the entryway dropped and the garish dirtbike head protectors all shot down the straightaway, it was by and by Justin Barcia with the holeshot! That obviously was terrible news for the field: Barcia sloped it up, got a pleasant lead, and traveled without test to his second triumph of the season in the same number of weeks. With a pleasant arrangement lead and certainty to boot, he resembles a sure thing to be there toward the end-yet it’s Supercross; and ANYTHING can occur as the season advances. Decent to see Blake Baggett bounce back from his nightmarish begin in Dallas a week ago to take second here, with Honda’s Justin Bogle adjusting the platform.

The 450’s at that point got the SX party shaking going all out. As the entryway dropped for the headliner of the night, the world’s best flew down the track with Cole Seely, on credit to the Team Honda Muscle Milk squad from Troy Lee Designs Lucas Oil Honda. Cole snatched the begin, trailed by Ryan Dungey (Red Bull/KTM), and continued to not simply lead the race, but rather pull away a bit at a certain point. Season pioneer and protecting champ Ryan Villopoto got off to a foreboding begin (mid-pack), as did James Stewart-both would need to battle their way to the front as the race wore on. Dungey exploited his strong begin, shadowing Seely for the initial 6 laps or something like that, searching for an opening. He would discover it and lead the pack over, never yielding and getting a genuinely necessary win! To no genuine surpise, RV2 and Bubba Stewart would feature their speed and mastery on a dirtbike, filtering through the field and running down the pioneers. In spite of the fact that Dungey turned out to be too far out ahead, they would assume control second and third individually making a power platform. Davi Millsaps (Toyota/JGRMX/Yamaha) completed in fourth, and Justin Brayton (Team Honda Muscle Milk) got by his impermanent colleague Seely with two laps to go for fifth.
