It proved to be a difficult night for Team Rocky Mountain ATV/MC -KTM-WPS for the first Triple Crown Event of the season as round 3 returned to Angels Stadium in Anaheim, CA this past Saturday night.
As the gates dropped for the first main event, Blake Baggett shot off the line, rounding the first turn buried deep in the pack. With triple crown races being shorter, Blake started right in on working his way up through the field. However, as luck would have it, a tough block cover would get caught in his rear wheel while making a pass for 10th place, ultimately hindering his race. After a long delay, Blake recovered to finish at the end of the field, costing him any shot at a decent overall finish.
The inclement weather didn’t stop racing fans as the first round of the 2019 Supercross season opener kicked off, taking over Angel Stadium of Anaheim CA this past Saturday night. It was a difficult night for SoCal SuperTrucks Supported riders Blake Baggett and Justin Bogle, as they started off the new season.

Blake Baggett came into the 2019 season ready and showing he will be a serious force this year as he put in a lighting fast lap in the closing minutes of practice to earn himself the top qualifier spot. He continued the pace into his heat race, rounding the first turn with the holeshot. He kept the momentum and hit his lines finishing 3rd to transfer straight to the main event.
SoCal SuperTrucks backed Team Rocky Mountain ATV/MC-KTM-WPS came into round 10 of Lucas Oil Pro Motocross facing extremely inclement weather conditions which some may have seen as a major obstacle to overcome right out the gate. Contrary to that notion, the team was barely affected by the muddy conditions created by the downpour.
