Oakland Race Report


ODI riders took on the muddy conditions at Oakland Stadium this last weekend as the Monster Energy Supercross tour made it’s final stop in California for the fifth round.  Rain throughout the day made the track wet and it didn’t take long for the ruts to get deep.

Broc Tickle finished just outside of the top ten with an eleventh place finish in the main event.

Justin Bogle made his return to the series after missing last weekends race in Phoenix.  Justin had a hard crash the week before and decided to take the extra week to heal up and prepare to do battle.  Unfortunately, the Oakland round also claimed him a victim and Justin left Oakland with a 22nd place finish.

In the 250 class Shane McElrath relinquished the red plate to Justin Hill after Justin’s 3rd race win.  Shane gave a valiant effort and explained on the podium that he wants to be the Ryan Dungey of the 250 class.  Meaning that if his worst night is still a podium finish he knows he’ll stay in the Championship hunt.  Look for Shane to be a little more aggressive next week in Dallas as he looks to regain the red plate heading into the break.
