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

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 postion 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 the red plate. Next week will be interesting with the Triple Crown so we'll see how that changes things up."

Monster Energy/Pro Circuit/Kawasaki's Forkner Returns to Top Step of the Podium with Home State Win

Monster Energy/Pro Circuit/Kawasaki's Austin Forkner proved he was back and capable of winning with a dominating performance in front of his home state inside The Dome at America's Center, earning his second straight main event holeshot and taking the wire-to-wire win. Teammate Cameron McAdoo posted fast times in practice, but after going down in the second timed qualifying session it was decided that he should sit out for the night to focus on returning next weekend.

Forkner had a chip on his shoulder coming into the second round after he was forced to relinquish his podium last week due to a mistake on the track. As Team Owner Mitch Payton pointed out, Forkner was shaking off some rust but showed improvements every time he was on the track.

With a race under his belt, Forkner was determined to prove he was ready to get back to the top and did so by winning his heat race, then going on to grab the main event holeshot and leading all 18 laps. He moved into second in the championship standings, five points back from the leader.

"I'm really happy to get back up here (on the podium)," said Forkner. "I started to ride tight halfway after I got to think about it. It's been a long time coming with physically healing from the knee and mentally getting back knowing I can win. I could hear the fans and they pushed me through. I love being able to win in front of my home crowd."

Monster Energy/Pro Circuit/Kawasaki's Forkner and McAdoo Match 2019 Finishes in Anaheim

Monster Energy/Pro Circuit/Kawasaki's Austin Forkner and Cameron McAdoo made it through the opening round with positive takeaways after finishing fifth and sixth, respectively, at Angel Stadium. The first round of the season always brings nerves and uncertainty, but the duo still managed to show speed on the very technical track. In the end, the pair ended up with the same finishing positions as their counterparts in 2019, which still resulted in a championship fight.

After two seasons competing on the east coast, Forkner made his return to Anaheim where he made his professional supercross debut. The rider from Missouri was ready to get back out on the track after taking the whole summer off to rehab a knee injury. With no main event gate drops since April 27, 2019, you wouldn't have known it with Forkner nearly taking the holeshot in the main event.

He quickly made his move into the lead and kept the pressure from second at bay. With roughly five minutes left in the race, Forkner went into a Tuff Block and was forced off his bike. He rejoined the race in third where he would finish, but was eventually docked two positions for cutting the track and finished the night in fifth.

"It was a split-second decision to be as safe as possible," said Forkner. "That's what they always tell us to rejoin safely and with me pointed backward and slightly left, I thought that after the next rider went by I would be fine. I didn't gain any position by doing what I did. It's a bummer they (the officials) didn't feel the same way. After knowing I was able to put a good pace out front, I'm more fired up than ever to get back out there next weekend."

Cameron McAdoo

McAdoo was making his team debut in Anaheim and was excited to start racing aboard his new Kawasaki KX250 machine. McAdoo didn't get the start he wanted in the Main Event but raced into the top 10 after the first lap. By Lap 5 he was in sixth position, keeping pace to come across with a solid result in his first outing with the team.

"After so much preparation, it's nice to finally get on the track and get a finish under my belt," said McAdoo. "We took away a lot of good from this round that I'm hoping we can work on this week to go after an even better result. I would love to be challenging for the podium and proving to these guys that I am able to run up front."
