When the series started back up a couple of weeks ago the AMA decided they would finish up in Utah. On Wednesday they reused the track but ran it backwards. No audience, same location for many races. But we get to see racing.        Bigok

The elevation where they are at is 4,600 feet. That does change the engine power and the fitness of the riders is more critical. Theoretically Realistically, Tomac has an advantage because he lives in Cortez, CO which is 6,000 ft. It is evident in all the races the last few years that Tomac doesn't fade and stays strong at the end of the races.

I still want Webb to win the last two races and Tomac to have mechanical problems.                Bigsmile

So they run Utah every race.  Thanks.  I did not know that.  I hope Tomac can get it this year but we will see.  Mainly because I like the Kawi  Thumbsup

Yesterday they changed the race track. Roczen was his old self and finally won. Webb second and Tomac third. There are TWO more races to go. One on Wednesday and the final on Sunday. Looks like Tomac will take it. All he has to do is cruise around and finish the race.

Thanks for the update.  I keep forgetting about Sunday and a Wednesday racing.

Will they run outdoor this summer?

Webb won again last night. Tomac had to come through the pack after a terrible start for second. The last race will be this Sunday but unless Tomac has some terrible luck he will be the 2020 Supercross champ. Too bad Webb had that one really bad race before the Coronavirus break. Otherwise, he would have repeated as champ this year.

Thanks for the update.  I think Web was really sick in January when the season started if I remember it correctly.

I finally watched the recording of Wednesday's race tonight(Friday). Webb won again but Tomac came in 2nd. Final race tis Sunday. Roczen is out of it and the only way Webb can repeat as champ is for Tomac to have a real lousy race. Too bad Webb had that one DNF race early on. He would have repeated as champ.

Watching the final races now. The 250s are about ready to start. The 450s next. In the 450s all Tomac has to do is take 19th or better.      He can do that in his sleep.

Anderson was going to win the race but his seat broke off in the last couple of laps. He hadn't won a supercross since 2018 when he won the championship. Osborn was right behind and won the race. Good for him as it was his first 450 class win. Tomac cruised to fifth place for the title. Webb ended up right behind Roczen for 2nd in the series and Roczen ended up 3rd for the series. Both of them were not on their game for this last race.

Next year should be good with many riders that could win races.

I think Osborn has a training facility not far from where I live.  It’s called Club MX in South Carolina.  I 6hink a few other top riders train with him.  Good to see another local do well.
