250SX Main Event Winner - Dylan Ferrandis


Wow now that was an event! My first pro motocross event with camera in hand was a crazy experience. The week before here shooting at Century Link with Monster Jam was rad, but this Supercross was a whole other energy beast! Imagine 20+ bikes at the starting line all ready like ravage bulls ready to be let loose to get in front and stay there, that's if you can make it through the first turn without stalling or crashing. 

  Once they get around that first bend it's an all-out rev fest of tight maneuvers, timely braking and perfectly executed throttling in trying to win either the heat or finals races or place high enough to gain points. There was two different group categories of racing. Basically the difference from the 450SX and 250SX divisions is engine size. The 250SX has 30% less power than the 450SX. Best explained more in this video: 
 One thing I noticed with all the riders they are like horse racing jockeys. Smaller guys on powerful machines. Guess my 210lb frame would be slow on these motorbikes ha. 
 Overall from the 630-7:04pm introductions to the ending final heats before 10pm it was non stop action from the free shirts getting tossed into the crowd 
  to Monster Energy girls with flame torches 
 to all the high flying racing action 
 it was entertainment for all from the old to especially the young! Oh and from a photographers standpoint it was action overload where at times I didn't know where I should be looking and shooting ha ha!! The biggest excitements came in the 2 last finals where in the 250SX Main Event the winner was driver Dylan Ferrandis who held off Adam Cianciarulo at the end for the win. 
  The 450SX Main Event Winner was Marvin Musquin but not without controversy. 
  Into his second lap he failed to acknowledge a red cross flag and jumped by a brutal crash where driver Chad Reed lost control fell off his bike and got landed on by another driver and had eight broken ribs, a broken scapula, and a collapse lung. They gave Musquin the win, but docked some big points off his yearly total that will probably affect his current 2nd place standings behind leader Cooper Webb. Here's the highlights: 

Thanks to Paul, Sean and all the Supercross people for the great hospitality! Already ready for the next Supercross to Seattle in 2020!!! Stay updated at: www.supercrosslive.com
