A1 first practice report: Miscellaneous Supercross
A1 1St practice/qualifying report:
Due to the rain, free practice was cancelled which forced the riders into an urgent situation; use this session to learn the track. If something happens during the session, they quickly became a spectator. The track was covered during the rain which caused lime on jump faces making it a dusty session. Ken Roczen was so good, and definitely the fastest with ease. Trey took a serious crash in the rhythm section, but is alright. Dean Wilson looked good and hit a triple triple that I didn't see anyone else hit, although lap time didn't show him any love.
For me the real action was in the 450 B practice where Jimmy Albertson, Nick Schmidt and Adam Enticknap all looked fast. My co-worker at WPS Kyle Gills had a huge crash, but re-mounted and turned in some good lap times. This track is tricky, it looked like perfect grip but had hidden slick spots where water either leaked onto or wasn't covered the last couple days. When the night moisture rolls in, watch for guys to lose their front wheels quite a bit.
In the 250 class Plessinger had the fastest time, but Justin Hill looked more consistent. If I had to bet right now he would be my favorite. In the 250 B session Fly Racing Rookie Bradley Taft looked smooth and fast. His time would have put him right around the 10th spot in the A session and he seems to have more in the tank. Get him on your Fantasy teams.
