After a thriller of a match at Anaheim II, the 2012 AMA Supercross series now moves on to the Qualcomm Stadium, San Diego for the sixth race of this season. While Villopoto became the first repeated winner of this season, it is expected that Dungey, Musquin, Eli Tomac and Cole Seely will deliver a great performance at San Diego before heading towards the indoor domed stadiums of the east for the upcoming weekends.
The 2012 AMA Supercross series will now head to the Qualcomm Stadium, San Diego for the sixth round. During the fifth race at Anaheim II, we saw this season’s first repeat winner when Ryan Villopoto showed great efforts and acquired the checkers. The top four riders are only few points away from each other in the points table and it is quite obvious that every single event from now on will be a high voltage action.
It has been noticed several times in this season that whichever out of the top four riders (Ryan Villopoto, Chad Reed, James Stewart and Ryan Dungey) hits the holeshot during the main event, walks away as the winner. At Anaheim II, Villopoto won for the second time in this season after battling for a short duration with Chad Reed who was able to gain an early lead in the opening lap. In this season, Reed mostly had a bad kick off but was able to gain the lead and ensure a win. However at Anaheim II, it was the first such win of Villopoto.
As the sixth race kicks off in San Diego this Saturday, there are a few things to look upon before the season heads to Dallas. Eli Tomac has shown great performance in this season so far and will go into San Diego as a dominant rider who has a prominent lead in the points table. However, it wouldn't be at all surprising if he quits from the San Diego race and prepares for the Dallas as he already has a great lead in the points tally. Another rider who is to be looked out for is Musquin, who has showed great speed in this season so far but needs to get a perfect start in the race. Only Cole Seely, Tomac and Wilson have shown speeds required to keep pace with Musquin. So if the three riders face trouble, then it might result into a win for Musquin at San Diego.
In the main event of the Supercross class, it is expected that now it might be the turn for Dungey to pull off a victory. He has been showing great efforts in this season and hopefully he might get on to the podium at San Diego. The Qualcomm Stadium, San Diego is believed to be doozy and the top contenders in both the classes will try to deliver their best performance so as to make their visit at the western coast a memorable one before heading towards the indoor domed stadiums of the east for the upcoming weekends.
