2022 Minneapolis Supercross Recap

Jason Anderson took advantage of a Chase Sexton crash and led the remaining seven rounds to secure his third win of the 2022 Monster Energy Supercross series on Saturday in Minneapolis, MN.

The Round 7 victory for Anderson puts the 2018 Supercross Champion within three points of leader Eli Tomac, who failed to make the podium for the first time since Round 2. Tomac got tangled up with Dylan Ferrandis at the base of the triple jump on the opening lap dumping him off his bike. Tomac worked his way to sixth from the back of the pack salvaging the necessary points to hold on to the Red Plate for another week. The win marks the second straight for Anderson as he continues to ride lights out this season on his new team and Kawasaki ride.

Sexton, who led the opening 17 laps was tossed off his bike coming out of a turn as the clock expired and was unable to finish the final two laps. Sexton went from a sure win to 16th and lost valuable ground in the Championship hunt dropping from third to sixth in the standings. No word on his injuries but he was seen struggling to get up as riders circumvented around him.

Elsewhere, defending Champion Cooper Webb got back on the box for the first time since his opening round second-place finish. Webb has struggled this year to regain his championship form but with the start of the East Coast leg of the series with a second-place, the change in dirt composition from the West Coast might be what he needs to ride up front. Veteran Marvin Musquin rounded out the podium for his first Top 3 this year.

Forkner, who has battled crashes in recent years taking him out of contention, rode steady for second and Cameron McAdoo took third. Jeremy Martin took fourth to begin his final year in the 250 class as RJ Hampshire rounded out the Top 5.
