Boston Native Jimmy Decotis: Making A Name For Himself In Monster Energy Supercross

A Boston native is having great success at Monster Energy Supercross this season.

Recap of the first 4 Monster Energy Supercross Events

The 2017 Supercross season kicked off on January 7, in Anaheim California. Where Ken Roczen was out to pick up where he left off from the Monster Energy Cup in Las Vegas, which was held on October 14, 2016. Roczen had a chance to win $1 million dollars if he won all three races but instead he just took home the championship trophy by winning two. Rozcen was also looking to pick up from were he left off from the outdoor season where he won the championship.

This year Monster Energy decided to change the format a bit and make the races timed instead of lap based.

Jimmy Decotis

Jimmy is a native from Peabody Ma. He recently turned pro back in 2009. He was a privateer which means he had to get to the races and buy all of his own gear, and bike all out of his own pocket. He is now riding with Team Honda CRF.

It is nice to see native of Boston doing well in this sport. Most of the athletes are from either out west, or down south. I think it is just because the sport is just not as big here as it is there. I know I have been rooting for him in these past 4 races.

Anaheim 1 Results, January, 7

The opening night was at the LA Angels stadium in Anaheim. Many if the guys from the 250 class of last year has moved up into the 450 like Cooper Webb and Malcolm Stewart the younger brother of the great James Stewart. So this is the perfect time for guys like Jimmy to take his shot at the 250 Championship.

Then in the 450 Ryan Dungey is looking to win his third Championship in a row, the last on to do it was Ryan Villopoto. But he will have to try to keep the mighty Ken Rozcen at bay, and Eli Tomac who is just itching to cause problem is the standings this year.

In the 450 main Tomac may have actually had a jet powered bike because he took HoleShot and never looked back or let up. At one point he had a 18 second lead on Dungey. The real battle was between two greats in two-time champ Chad Reed and Ryan Dungey. The two went back forth, for almost the whole race. Reed would make the pass then Dungey would take it back. In the end Reed was able to make a great pass on Dungey towards the end of the race.
