Bowers is Still in the Hunt for a 250 SX Crown - Oakland Recap

1/27/2015

 

 

Irvine, Calif. (January 26, 2015) ­– Monster Energy AMA Supercross, an FIM World Championship made its first visit of the season to the Bay Area for Round 4 on Saturday at O.co Coliseum in Oakland. Tyler Bowers pushed forward to finish just off the podium in fourth place..

 

 

Still in the Hunt
 
Bowers maintained second place in the championship as they hit the halfway mark of the Western Region. He qualified fifth and cruised into the main event with a fourth place in his heat race. Bowers did not get the start he was looking for in the main event and rounded the first lap in ninth. Each lap he picked off riders and moved into a podium position by the midway point of the 15-lap main event. He pushed the limits of the deteriorating track and had to settle for fourth place at the checkered flag. Bowers sits eight points behind in the championship.
 
“I should have been on the podium tonight,” said Bowers. “Once again my start in the main event did not help. I moved as quick as I could to catch the leaders and made a few mistakes towards the end that cost me a podium and points. We’ve got two more rounds before the break and I’d like to have the red plate before then.”

 

 

Third Time’s the Charm
 
Monster Energy Supercross returns to Angel Stadium in Anaheim for the third and final time of the season for Round 5 on Saturday, January 31st. Bowers finished third at Anaheim 1, second at Anaheim 2, and looks to take the final step up to the top of the box at Anaheim 3.

Monster Energy/Pro Circuit/Kawasaki’s Tyler Bowers Finishes Runner-up in Anaheim

1/19/2015

 

 

Irvine, Calif. (January 19, 2015) – Monster Energy AMA Supercross returned to Angel Stadium in Anaheim on Saturday for Round 3 that saw the championship in the 250SX Western Region heat up. Monster Energy/Pro Circuit/Kawasaki’s Tyler Bowers worked his way from a bad start to lead in the main event, but was bumped to finish second after a last lap battle.

 

So Close
Bowers had stayed consistent in the first two rounds and was ready for a breakthrough race in Anaheim. He posted top times throughout qualifying and finished runner-up in his heat race. When the gate dropped for the main event, Bowers got pinched back around the first turn but was able to work some magic on the first lap and got inside the top-10. He inherited the lead on Lap 6 and had a sizeable gap until the last lap where he came together for the lead and got pushed off the track. He recovered to finish second and sits second in the championship by only four points.
 
“It was a hard pill to swallow,” said Bowers. “But we could be in a worse spot. I got a terrible start and pulled some Houdini moves to get to the front quickly. I got handed the lead and rode by myself for most of the race, which I think hurt me. It was good to be up front and now I just need to work on keeping the pace up once I get there. We’ll get them next weekend.”

 

North-bound
The Monster Energy AMA Supercross season heads to Raider Nation in Northern California next Saturday for Round 4 at O.Co Coliseum in Oakland. Bowers will look to make up his four-point deficit while Millsaps continues to climb up the top-10 in the championship standings.
