Pro Circuit Leads Into Dodger Stadium

Supercross Round 3

Monster Energy Pro Circuit Kawasaki looks to carry the momentum from the first two successful rounds to a brand new stop for Monster Energy Supercross, an FIM Championship at Dodger Stadium in Los Angeles.

Josh Hansen returns to his hometown to go after his third consecutive win, while teammate Broc Tickle is eager to collect his first win of the season. Tyla Rattray comes into Los Angeles hungry for another podium finish in his first season of supercross competition.

With his season already seeing great success, winning in Los Angeles would be even more special to Hansen. The hometown race for Hansen will bring out family and friends from the area to watch him go after win number three.

Josh Hansen (2011 Kawasaki KX 250 F) says: "It’s going to be really special having family come out that doesn’t normally get to come, like my grandma," comments the SC Lites points leader. "I have been feeling really good and want to do well for all the people that are going to make it out and cheer me on."

Having a good first season with his new team, Tickle has been one of Hansen’s toughest competitors. He was close to his first win of the season in Phoenix and hopes the race at Dodger Stadium is his time to stand on top of the podium.

Broc Tickle (2011 Kawasaki KX 250 F) says: "It’s a little frustrating since I know I’ve got the speed to win, but I just need to stay patient and the wins will start coming," explains the fast starter. "I’ve been sick and my main focus is to get healthy and hopefully things will start going my way."

Rattray comes off his first heat-race win in Phoenix and looks to bring what he’s learned over the past two rounds into Los Angeles. After nursing a practice injury back to health, Rattray is confident that he can continue to show speed and make a return to the podium.

Tyla Rattray (2011 Kawasaki KX 250 F) says: "It was tough going through Phoenix with a hurt wrist, but if I could finish sixth with a hurt wrist, I know I can get back on the podium when I’m healthy. Supercross is really tough, but I’m enjoying it."

Hansen enters the third round of the AMA Supercross Lites Western Region with a six-point lead over teammate Tickle. Rattray sits in third, just nine points down from Tickle as the team visits Los Angeles for the inaugural race at Dodger Stadium.
