2012 Monster Energy AMA Supercross Series – Seattle Preview
The 2012 Monster Energy Supercross Championships are rapidly coming to a close, but before they do, riders will revisit the western United States for the last three rounds of the series. This weekend, the tour heads to the home of coffee drinkers and grunge music: Seattle, Washington.
Ryan Villopoto already secured the Supercross Class title a record breaking four rounds early, so he is really just out to prove a point at the moment. And prove he did last weekend, taking an uncontested win in New Orleans.
With so many riders getting hurt this season, it has been any guess as to who could wind up on the podium at the remaining rounds, and the Big Easy nearly had two big surprises. Josh Grant made his triumphant return to the box, taking home a very solid second place finish. But the big surprise was Mike Alessi. The MotoConepts rider was running in third place for almost the entire race until he came upon some lapped traffic.
