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.
It was a historic night for SoCal SuperTrucks backed Team Rocky Mountain ATV/MC -KTM-WPS inside the State Farm Stadium in Glendale, AZ as Blake Baggett took the 450SX win at round two of the 2019 Supercross season. This marks both Blake’s and the team’s first win in the premier 450SX class of Supercross.

The technical Glendale track befit Blake Baggett’s style, and it was clear during his heat race. With a great start, he rounded the first turn in 4th place. Riding fast, and hitting his lines, he held onto that position the entire race, and crossed the finish to transfer straight to the main.
This past Saturday night marked the start of the 2018 Monster Energy Supercross season at Angel Stadium in Anaheim, CA. The excitement and anticipation were high as the day lead up to the first gate drop of the year for team riders Blake Baggett, Benny Bloss, and Dakota Alix.
