Justin Hill

Having nearly taken the win last weekend in San Diego, Justin Hill was more than ready to takeover this weekend. He and his KX250F had no problem setting the fastest time during qualifying. After a top three finish in Heat 1, the Main Event was looking better and better for number 46. He charged through the pack in the main and in Turn 1 he snagged the lead. Maintaining his position, he captured his first win of the season!

"The weekend ended great. It's funny because I started the day feeling off, but when the main comes around and there's points on the line, it's go time. I let it all hang out on the track and I was able to do it confidently. When I took over the lead I didn't expect to get it at that time, it came faster than I thought and I just went with it. I'm excited about the rest of the season and about right now."

Austin Forkner

Demonstrating constant improvement, Austin Forkner arrived in Southern California fit for battle. In Heat 2 he grabbed the lead and rode aggressively to maintain his spot. Keeping an impressive pace, the rookie Supercross rider experienced his first heat win! Austin blasted past the competition in the main and took the holeshot. Staying solid all day, he finished just outside of the top three and remains eager and enthusiastic for a podium finish!

"I was charging pretty hard in the first lap. I was stood up a couple times and then made a mistake in the whoops and went back to fourth. Most of the race all happened in the first couple laps for me. If I was able to get the first few laps clean I would have had a better result. After I started riding smoother, I was able to match the pace of the riders in front of me and I feel really confident moving forward."

Fueled by the day's achievements, Justin Hill entered the main with his sights on the podium. While riding among the leaders throughout the race, he waited until the final laps to really make his move. Making valuable passes, he pushed his way to the front of line, just seconds behind the leader. Justin crossed the checkers in second and found himself on the podium for the first time this season.

"My KX250F was fastest through qualifying and I won my heat. I didn't get a great start in the main but pushed for the entire race and earned second. It feels great to be back on the podium and after tonight, I know I can win."

Austin Forkner

Austin Forkner entered Petco Park ready for anything that may be thrown at him. He displayed great riding in qualifying and during the second heat race. In the heat, he took the holeshot and rode among the top three throughout the race. Austin finished the heat in third and was fired up for the main. In the night's main event, he fought to maintain his position. Never giving up, Austin Forkner crossed the checkers in fifth and remains motivated for the next round.

"We got a lot faster as the day went on. A few changes to the bike throughout the day lead to being able to loosen up and ride better. In the heat we got the holeshot and raced really hard for third. In the Main Event we had a great start but tangled with another rider and dropped back to eighth. I felt a little tight but made some solid passes and overall rode well. The lap times were competitive and we're making progress, so we are happy so far."

rider image

The Monster Energy/Pro Circuit/Kawasaki team kicked off 2017 at the Angel Stadium of Anaheim for round one of the Monster Energy Supercross Championship this past Saturday. The team entered A1 ready for action and were determined to stay ahead of the pack. Exiting round one, Justin Hill finished in 5th and Austin Forkner in 8th.

Justin Hill

Back for the 2017 season, Justin Hill came into A1 aboard his KX250F equipped for battle. Justin quickly progressed into the heat races after a strong performance during qualifying. During the first heat, he demonstrated great speed and spend most of the race among the leaders. Finishing in an impressive 3rd, it was time to prepare for the main event. He rode smooth and steady throughout the main and crossed the checkers in 5th.

"I felt really good all day. My practice times were pretty good and qualifying went well, but at the end of the day I still have some work to do. I need to improve my fitness and to make my riding more fluid so it's easier to race at the pace I'm capable of. It's difficult when I know I have the speed and the bike to be at the front but I come home fifth. I'll take this as motivation, go home and put the work in."

Austin Forkner

After a very successful rookie year in the Lucas Oil Pro Motocross Championship, Austin Forkner is looking to continue his success into Supercross. The young rider demonstrated the traits of a strong rider throughout the day's qualifying and heat races. Set to lead the pack in the main, he began to charge through the track. He went down in the whoops, but he did not stay down for long. Determined to return to the front, he got back on his bike and began to make his way back to the front. Austin finished the night in 8th and remains hungry to lead in San Diego.

"My first Monster Energy Supercross went pretty well. I crossed the line second in my heat which was good experience for me. In the main I didn't get the start I wanted but was moving forward pretty quickly. A few laps in I was passed in the whoops and had to let off to avoid a collision, which put me in the dirt. I got up, got back in the race and worked my way forward. I threw down the fastest lap of the race and was right on pace with the leaders until the checkers, so all in all I'm pretty happy with my performance."
