Monster Energy/Pro Circuit/Kawasaki rider Jake Weimer stood on the top step of the podium for the second consecutive year as he dominated the supercross lites class at the season opener in Anaheim (1), California.
The season opener at Anaheim is the Super Bowl of supercross as everyone is excited for the new season. With that excitement comes added pressure, but that didn’t seem to affect Weimer at all. He paced both practice sessions, easily won his heat race, rocketed to the main event holeshot and led wire-to-wire for his fifth career supercross lites win.
America has once again claimed the top spot at the world’s biggest motocross race, winning one of the most competitive Red Bull FIM Motocross of Nations in history, the American Motorcyclist Association (AMA) reports.
Hopes for another AMA Team USA win at the Motocross of Nations, held this year in Franciacorta, Italy, were slim heading into the last moto. The U.S. squad of Ryan Dungey, Ivan Tedesco and Jake Weimer was third in team points heading into the final race, but an inspired performance — and a little luck — put them firmly in the lead when the dust settled.
