Responses often start to discover when the collection strikes past two rounds, but the solutions in 2019 are nonetheless visible on numerous surprises on Saturday night time at Glendale SX 2019.
Within the 450SX class, Rocky Mountain ATV / MC / WPS / KTM Blake Baggett stunned everyone when he fought from behind to move defensive Champ, Rockstar / Husqvarna Jason Anderson and gained the primary 450 events.

After eight rounds of books we collected some quotes to get the riders' ideas concerning the Glendale SX 2019.
Blake Baggett: (First 450's) “It's just good to be able to feel good enough to run behind Jason [Anderson] and you know I have weekends where I can run with these guys, and some weekends just leave me in the dust, so It feels good to finally get the whole program together and be able to run with these guys.

Colt Nichols: (2nd Place 250)“ The bike was great. It felt really, really good all day. We made a few changes to the suspension before the night program and it helped a lot. The song was just so dry, and you had to be really, really patient. I tried not to rush everything, but sometimes I rushed it up and made a few small mistakes. However, it is fine. I still saved a second, so I'm really happy to leave the points lead and prepare for next weekend. ”
Ken Roczen: (3rd in 450)” When you're a pacesetter and a pink flag comes out, it's by no means too enjoyable. I really wasn't positive if I was going to restart the gate or start a gradual start. Luckily, they stated a staggered begin. It’s robust as a result of first you never need to see anyone. It was wild. I hope in Malcolm's condition. Before I pulled a very good holeshot. I targeted a lot originally, because the heat competition didn't go properly for me. I made the modifications and I swung. I'm not going to let that heat contest down, so I knew I had to turn around all night time. So we got here out waving there, led the great rounds and made a reasonably good velocity. I was very targeted and tried to hit my mark. I pulled that entire race till the purple flag, so in fact it was bouncing, however it was the same for everybody. “
Shane McElrath: (3rd in 250) “Tonight was a really tough song. It needed a lot of attention, a lot of patience and it was really hard to be consistent. Hair was probably the hardest part. They weren't so big, but from the third practice they started to take the black marks on them. Since then, the track crew could not do anything with them. They always kept their shape from the first practice through the most important event. It was really difficult because they needed a lot of body position and technology. I had a few mistakes there that really cost a lot. It was like riding a test track. This week we had rain, so the test tracks were really good, but we should have ridden the test track dry to prepare for it. ”
So Tomac: (fourth in 450)” I used to be positive I got here to the weekend and felt good. The monitor was large and totally different from a lot of the collection's tracks. It's by no means excellent to go to LCQ, however we've completed it and stayed targeted on the Major Event. We are specializing in the start this week and we are in search of this follow subsequent weekend. We are nonetheless at third factors and in a very good position, so we'll turn to a different Anaheim evasion. ”

I needed to do the identical factor on the top, and I acquired an enormous begin once more and was leading at first, however then I acquired the third one. I was behind [Jason] Anderson and we have been quite pleased about driving till they blushed it unfortunately to Malcolm Stewart who went down. Hope he's okay. We restarted where we have been, what was good because I assumed we had to start the whole competition. Sadly, I had too many errors within the first two rounds, and it value me two factors and I lost too much land for other associates. The fifth place shouldn’t be too dangerous, considering every part that happened in the primary. I’ve an enchancment on driving and biking, every little thing labored high quality. ”

All in all, the workforce at present worked actually fun once I cycled this tough monitor. It was really arduous packed, actually slippery. The workforce went over and continued and did a superb job on the bike. The music was just troublesome for me. So I transfer this week. Works with a few things and then again to Anaheim.

At the Principal Occasion we didn't get a great begin again, a couple of go and then the purple flag got here out. It was type of wild – it's flasters about you and you're unsure what to do. So I went again and sadly for a couple of mistakes, blended back, a number of guys and I simply rode every part properly tonight.
