Monster Energy/Pro Circuit/Kawasaki’s Tyler Bowers Finishes Runner-up in Anaheim

1/19/2015

 

 

Irvine, Calif. (January 19, 2015) – Monster Energy AMA Supercross returned to Angel Stadium in Anaheim on Saturday for Round 3 that saw the championship in the 250SX Western Region heat up. Monster Energy/Pro Circuit/Kawasaki’s Tyler Bowers worked his way from a bad start to lead in the main event, but was bumped to finish second after a last lap battle.

 

So Close
Bowers had stayed consistent in the first two rounds and was ready for a breakthrough race in Anaheim. He posted top times throughout qualifying and finished runner-up in his heat race. When the gate dropped for the main event, Bowers got pinched back around the first turn but was able to work some magic on the first lap and got inside the top-10. He inherited the lead on Lap 6 and had a sizeable gap until the last lap where he came together for the lead and got pushed off the track. He recovered to finish second and sits second in the championship by only four points.
 
“It was a hard pill to swallow,” said Bowers. “But we could be in a worse spot. I got a terrible start and pulled some Houdini moves to get to the front quickly. I got handed the lead and rode by myself for most of the race, which I think hurt me. It was good to be up front and now I just need to work on keeping the pace up once I get there. We’ll get them next weekend.”

 

North-bound
The Monster Energy AMA Supercross season heads to Raider Nation in Northern California next Saturday for Round 4 at O.Co Coliseum in Oakland. Bowers will look to make up his four-point deficit while Millsaps continues to climb up the top-10 in the championship standings.

Bowers Just Misses Podium at Phoenix AZ Supercross

1/12/2015

 

 

Irvine, Calif. (January 12, 2015) – Round 2 of the Monster Energy AMA Supercross, an FIM Championship brought Monster Energy Kawasaki to Chase Field in Phoenix, where Kawasaki flirted with the podium all evening. Monster Energy/Pro Circuit/Kawasaki’s Tyler Bowers continued to show he’s a championship contender as he finished runner-up in his heat race and recovered from a bad start in the main event to finish fourth.

 

Consistency 
Starting off the season with a podium in Anaheim left Bowers wanting more in Phoenix. He got a great start in his heat race and quickly took the lead. Bowers battled intensely, trading places back and forth and ultimately finished a close second. In the main event, Bowers was buried in the pack around the first turn and crossed the line in 10th on lap one.  Striving for the podium, he picked off riders each lap to finish with an impressive fourth place result. Bowers sits third in the points standings, just one point out of second and seven points out of the lead.
 
“I wasted my good start in my heat race,” joked Bowers. “The first couple laps were pretty hectic, and I was just trying to stay out of trouble and keep moving forward. With a good start I know I can win races, so I’ll continue to work on those this week and we’ll be ready for A2.”

 

Not Your Typical PHX 
Typically the track at Chase Field features very dry and slick desert soil where throttle control and traction are the keys. This year however, the dirt had much more moisture in it, due to the weather in Phoenix, which provided soft and rutted conditions.

 

Fitness 
The softer dirt resulted in a course that continued to develop and change all the way to the last checkered flag of the night. As the track changed, it became extremely technical and was both physically and mentally demanding.

 

Anaheim, Again 
With two rounds complete, Monster Energy Supercross heads back to Angel Stadium for Round 3 on January 17th. The opening round didn’t go as planned for riders like Millsaps and Alldredge and they will look to turn that around and build off their finish in Phoenix.
