Vans Moto Athletes Tyla Rattray and Martin Davalos lined up for another exciting round of 2013 Monster Energy Supercross this past Saturday at Angel Stadium in Anaheim, Calif. Teammate Blake Baggett sat the night out in order to recover from an injury sustained at a previous round.
Rattray was quiet during the first two rounds of the series, but is finally starting to move up the ranks of the extremely stacked 250SX West class. His eighth-place finish propelled him from seventh overall to now being tied for fifth overall in 250SX West point standings.
Martin Davalos >> Pushing Through
After earning his first podium finish of the season last Saturday in Phoenix, Davalos was confident he could keep the momentum going in Anaheim. He ripped a holeshot in his heat race, but was eventually relegated to the third-place spot by the time the checkered flag waved. After taking some time to figure out the flow of the tricky track, he lined up for the 250SX West Main Event with the hopes of repeating his podium success. Unfortunately, he was involved in an incident early in the race that plagued his plan for victory. After the incident, he remounted and fought through the pack to finish 12th. He is now focused on a return to the podium at this Saturday’s race in Oakland.
