MATT BISCEGLIA: BACK IN BUSINESS

After a head injury at Anaheim 2 left Matt Bisceglia sidelined for nearly 2 weeks, the pressure was on to stay in the hunt and return to the action with a vengeance.  The elevated, BMX-style starting gate meant that a bad start would make for an incredibly difficult main event, but Bisceglia had his eye on the prize. “I couldn’t ask for much more from Matt Bisceglia last night.  After taking two weeks off with his hard wreck he had from A2, Matt still came in showing where he belongs with two holeshots and pushed the pace up front in the main. Great work Matt!”, his trainer Tyler Kalisiak commented immediately after the main. With 45,000 fans on their feet and the pyrotechnics blazing, Matt ripped an monster holeshot, ripping out of the gate holding a tight inside while carrying an insane amount of momentum, feet on the pegs as he dropped into the deep outside rut in Corner Two.  After logging nearly 6 laps and encountering a red flag, full restart, he finished strong with a 5th in the restart-Main and let his competitors know he’s back in business.

MALCOLM STEWART: GRINDMODE

It’s no secret that ALiAS / GEICO Honda rider Malcolm Stewart is on the grind right now.  Steadily, he stalked his way from tough luck at Anaheim 1 all the way to the top of the podium in Oakland. Drawing inspiration from his older brother James, it’s clear Malcolm is riding inspired and coming into his own as a championship contender. Malcolm topped the practice lap times for almost the entire session, setting a blistering pace on the most technical Anaheim layout we’ve seen yet. Lining up against 250 West points leader Cooper Webb, it was Bisceglia with the holeshot followed by Stewart and Webb.  In a bar-to-bar dragrace against his teammate, Stewart pulled into the lead and took the checkers in 250SX Heat 1.  Amidst the chaos of the main, he managed to walk away with a 17th, scoring 4 points but walking away unscathed and ready for another week of Monster Energy Supercross.
