2013 Toronto AMA Supercross

Arriving in Toronto, Canada, with his biggest lead of the season in the Monster Energy AMA Supercross 250SX East standings, GEICO Honda’s Wil Hahn is more motivated than ever to return to the top of the podium to keep his advantage growing during the 2013 schedule’s stretch run.

Hahn leads second-place Marvin Musquin by nine points in the 250SX East standings and is targeting specific parts of his game this week at Rogers Centre in order to add to the two wins he already has earned.

Wil Hahn (GEICO Honda CRF250R Supercross) says: “I’m feeling good and feeling confident. I just need to concentrate on my starts during training to get them a little better. I’ve had to work my way through the field to get on the podium the last couple of weeks. If I would have had better starts I could have used that energy to contend for the win.”

Hahn, who has finished every race on the podium this year, said he’s also going to try and bring more swagger to his raceday approach.

Wil Hahn says: “I rode defensively last week and I don’t need to ride like that. I earned the red plate by riding aggressively and I want to return to that in Toronto.

“I know what to expect from that track because I rode Toronto last year on a 450. The dirt is soft and can be a lot of fun. I’m looking forward to getting back out there.”

Teammate Zach Bell is still focused on making progress during his rookie season.

Zach Bell (GEICO Honda CRF250R Supercross) says: “I’ve never been to Toronto so it will be a new experience for me,” Bell said. “Hopefully we’ll be able to get in some good practice this week because I missed all of the lead-up to Indianapolis fighting the flu.

“We’re just looking to get better and earn a spot on the podium in Canada.”

Eli Tomac, who had been riding a 450 the past few weeks, will step aside in order to rest and focus on the 250SX West title chase, which resumes in April.

Practice for the Monster Energy AMA Supercross event at Rogers Centre gets under way at 12:30 p.m. EST with opening ceremonies starting at 7 p.m. SPEED TV will air the event live at 7:30 p.m. EDT.
