Ryan Dungey takes second place in season-opening round

ANAHEIM, Calif. (INTELLIHUB) — The 2017 AMA Monster Supercross kicked off on Jan. 7 with a bang.

During the 450 Main Event No. 94, Ken Roczen (Honda) rode his bike like the wind Saturday night at Angel Stadium in the Round 1 opener.

The unofficial results were as follows for the 450 Main:

1. Ken Roczen
2. Ryan Dungey
3. Marvin Musquin
4. Jason Anderson
5. Eli Tomac
6. Cole Seely
7. Davi Millsaps
8. Weston Peick
9. Josh Grant
10. Cooper Webb

“The 450SX Main would run to 20 minutes plus one lap, and the 250SX Main would run to 15 minutes plus one lap. The heats, semis and LCQs were also timed,” reports FoxSports.com.

UltimateMotorcycling.com reported:

“My first race went good,” said Roczen. “It seems like they do this each year at Anaheim 1, but they tamed the track down, which is probably a good thing. I got two good starts and pretty much just focused on myself. I tried to not make any mistakes, as it got really rough and the dirt was hard underneath. Overall, I am really happy with how the day went. We’ve got to keep our head on our shoulders and look forward to the next weekend. It feels great to celebrate our first win, but there are many more races to go.”

Rain was a concern for riders and spectators alike, but all turned out well and track conditions were nice.
