Last Saturday night, the famous CenturyLink Field stadium of Seattle was the center of attraction worldwide. The stadium played host to the 15th round of the 2012 AMA Supercross Series, a part of the FIM World Championship. The match also marked the return of the Eastern Regional Supercross Lites Class Series of this season. It was a night full of celebrations for the Star/Valli Racing Yamaha’s racing team as one of its ace riders, Ryan Sipes, registered a thrilling win in the Supercross Lites West Class Series. Red Bull KTM’s Marvin Musquin too had an impressive run and finished second in the race while team GEICO Honda’s Eli Tomac acquired the final position in the race podium.
When the gates opened for the main event, Dean Wilson of team Monster Pro Circuit Kawasaki was the first rider to come out. He gained amazing speed and acquired the Nuclear Cowboyz Holeshot award in no time. Riding just behind Wilson was Ryan Sipes of team Star/Valli Racing Yamaha who was continuously in a tow to overtake him. Sipes then quickly gained superb speed and showed some great skills to go pass Wilson and acquire the leading position in the match. Sipes then rode beautifully with complete focus and was able to maintain the first position till the end of the race. He was the first to acquire the checked flag and the top position in the podium.
Marvin Musquin of team Red Bull KTM delivered an amazing performance and was another rider who overtook Wilson to gain the second position.
