Monster Energy Pro Circuit Kawasaki Puts Anaheim in Rear View After Tough Night

2020-01-20 01:10
Monster Energy Pro Circuit Kawasaki’s Austin Forkner had a good night going for him at Angel Stadium during Round 3 of the Monster Energy Supercross series, though the end result of 17th wasn’t what he had hoped for. With seven rounds left, Forkner has plenty of time to bounce back and make a run at the points leader.

After taking the heat race win in dominating fashion, Forkner was confident he could translate that speed to the main event. He managed to squeeze through the first turn and start the main event in third. While holding a good pace for a majority of the race, Forkner caught an edge of one of the whoops and went down. He didn’t give up and remounted to finish out the race, resulting in a 17th for the night. He is currently fourth in the standings, 22 points out of the lead.

“It was a tough one to take tonight after being in good position the whole race,” said Forkner. “The track was changing a lot during the race, getting slippery and the whoops broke down a lot more than we expected. Moving forward, I know I will do everything in my power to make sure I’m getting maximum points and go after that red plate. Next week will be interesting with the Triple Crown so we’ll see how that changes things up.”
