Supercross kicks off the season at Anaheim Stadium
A crowd of over 45,000 packed Anaheim Stadium on Saturday evening to witness the 2013 Monster Energy Supercross season opener. Davi Millsaps enjoyed his first 450SX victory since 2010 as he domintated one of the best Supercross starting lineups ever. Millsaps was joined on the podium by Trey Canard who seemed thrilled to finish second after a long recovery from a season ending injury in 2012. Third place went to Ryan Dungey who finished highest amongst the pre-race favorites. Chad Reed finished in fourth and James Stewart finished in eighth after suffering an injury earlier in the day. Defending champion Ryan Villopoto made it to the main event but was squeezed at the starting line and later fell and ended up in 16th place. In the 250SX class, defending champ Eli Tomac took home the hardware and was joined on the podium by Ken Roczen and Cole Seely.
Prior to the races, thousands of fans had the chance for photo opportunities and autographs with many of the riders. There were also vendor and sponsor booths with lots of give-aways and products. Monster Energy kept the pits rocking with a giant party deck and a DJ cranking the tunes.
Supercross returns to Anaheim Stadium on January 19 and February 2. Get your tickets early as this event often sells out.
