Troy Lee Designs GasGas Michael Mosiman grabbed a mixed bag of results at last nights Glendale Supercross, finishing ninth overall on the night.
Coming off a two-race podium streak, Michael Mosiman was hoping to keep the ball rolling this weekend but luck wasn’t on his side from the get go. In the first race, Mosiman came together with another rider in the first turn and got trapped under his bike. Eventually remounting in dead last, he made an impressive charge from 22nd up to 14th halfway into the race, and he was able to squeak into the top-10 with another big push late in the race.
Rebounding in the second main, Mosiman turned a ninth-place start into a stellar ride as he charged his way into podium contention. Overtaking second on lap eight, Mosiman put in some solid laps to challenge the leader late in the race, finishing only 1.384 seconds away from the win in race two. Mosiman got off to a promising start in the last Main Event, jumping into a top-five battle right off the start.
Running fourth, he chased down the podium battle late in the race but he took another spill that ultimately caused him to drop to the back of the pack with only three laps to go. He fought hard to come back to 15th in that race, giving him ninth overall on the night.
“What a wild ride that was!” explained Mosiman. “Three races and three different experiences. I rode really well and I had a lot of great things happen but some things didn’t go my way. We’re going to move forward and continue to do the things we’ve done well, learn from what we haven’t and move onto Anaheim and see if I can’t get another win. I totally believe I can, so we’re going to take this week to do a little bit of healing and go knock it out of the park!”
