A Look Back at Supercross 2019

Supercross Celebration, FIM World Championships, Justin BarciaA Look Back at Supercross 2019

The 17-race 2019 Supercross season was filled with milestones and incredible moments.

Justin Barcia started the year with a popular victory in 450SX, winning the first Anaheim race of the season – and his first win since 2013. Blake Baggett then rode to his first career win in the second race of the season.

After the first two races, the year was dominated by three riders: Eli Tomac, Marvin Musquin and Cooper Webb. Tomac and Musquin, who are veterans of the sport, and 24-year-old rookie Webb, dominated the final 15 races of the season, all of which were won by one of these three riders.

Webb rode to his first career 450SX win in the first Triple Crown race of the season at Anaheim 2, and followed it with a victory the next week in Oakland. Tomac went on to earn his first win of the year at San Diego, but it was Webb who continued to establish his early season dominance with victories in Minneapolis and Arlington, Texas.

By the midway point of the season, Webb had a 13-point advantage over second place in the point standings.  Tomac and Musquin, however, went on to make their moves, winning four of the next five races with Tomac taking wins in Detroit and Daytona, while Musquin claimed victories in Indianapolis and Seattle. Webb continued to maintain the points lead with his win at Atlanta which was followed by another Triple Crown victory in Houston.

Tomac closed the year with three wins in the final four events, however Webb’s advantage was too large as he went into the final race needing just a 20th place finish to earn the title. He finished third, and walked away as the champion in his first full-time season.

January starts the 2020 season again for the Supercross riders, who once again kick off the year in Anaheim, California on January 4.
