Wilson, Osborne & Barcia Top Qualifying At Anaheim One Supercross 2014

The 2014 Monster Energy Supercross season has finally begun inside Angels Stadium, and as cliché as it sounds, the bar has been raised yet again by the sport’s fastest riders. Timed qualifying throughout the afternoon has given us an idea of what to expect when the gate drops on the first heat of the night (the 450 class) at 7:30 PM Pacific Time, and we must say that this year’s racing will be some of the best in the sport’s history.

250 Timed Qualifying

Rockstar Energy Racing KTM’s Jason Anderson set an incredibly fast pace in the first timed session of the day, and was nearly a full second quicker than his nearest competition, Cole Seely, on the clock. The pack closed the gap in the second outing, and the top-five were within around a half-second of one another. The session began with Anderson jumping to the front early, but Troy Lee Designs/Lucas Oil/Honda’s Cole Seely and Malcolm Stewart, GEICO Honda’s Zach Osborne, and Monster Energy/Pro Circuit/Kawasaki’s Dean Wilson all had the moment at the top. In the waning moments, both Wilson and Osborne posted a lap time of 58.187, a first for Monster Energy Supercross.

450 Timed Qualifying

The title favorites of the 450 class wasted no time finding their place in the order during timed qualifying, and the top-three were separated by only .107 seconds of one another. Red Bull KTM’s Ken Roczen ran the charts for the majority of the session, but Team Honda Muscle Milk’s Justin Barcia topped the rookie on his sixth lap. Roczen fired back on his final lap and posted what would be the fourth-fastest time of the qualifier, but it was not enough to take back the spot. Yoshimura Suzuki’s James Stewart was quickest in the day’s first practice, but only logged three laps in practice two. However, his time was still fast enough for third overall. Defending champion Ryan Villopoto was fourth overall on the charts, edging rival Ryan Dungey by a mere .240 seconds.
