Monster Energy Supercross: Craziness Ensued In Seattle As Ryan Dungey Continues To Struggle

Published

Marvin Musquin Wins Second Race Of Season

450 Class:

Saturday’s race seemed to be the one for Ryan Dungey although he did not have a great heat race. He needed this one and before the race he cleared the air with fellow rider Chad Reed. And so it seemed that with a clear conscience he was going to come out hot. Unfortunately it did not happen that way in the main. Dungey had an okay start and got stuck behind Cooper Webb cut the first corner a bit to tight and pulled the tough block onto the track blocking Dungey’s path. Dungey fell off his bike and then had to try to get it restarted. Luckily for Ryan Eli Tomac also had a bad start. Now once again Dungey and Tomac had to pick off riders one by one. Dungey was able to make it up to 4 and Tomac managed 2. While Dungey’s teammate Marvin Musquin led every lap of the race. Eli Tomac will now head into the off-week with the red plate as Salt Lake City is next up in two weeks.

“It means a lot to get this win,” said Musquin. “We’ve been working hard and today was a good day. The track was really tough and technical, and you could easily make mistakes. I didn’t have the greatest start so I don’t know how I pulled it off, but I got into the lead pretty quick and just tried to ride consistent.”

I cannot wait until the final round in Vegas.

250 Class:

With heading back out west that means the 250 changes back to the west as well. Justin Hill was the points leader heading into Saturday. This was an eventful main as the race was red flagged when Chase Marquier and Noah McConahy crashed. A red flag means a complete restart of the race. On the restart Martin Davalos grabbed the hole shot with Boston native Jimmy Decotis close behind, followed by Aaron Plessinger. Plessinger was able to get by both Decotis and Davalos to take the lead. Then Decotis was in a battle for third with Mitchell Oldenburg. The two went back and forth for a lap or two but Oldenburg was able to make the pass. Plessinger was able to hold off Davalosfor the victory and grab his first win of the season.

State of Trifecta Network

The last two months have been a whirlwind. There are no words that can truly describe what has happened to us as a website.

We went from a site that was getting an average of 2-3k viewers a week to getting that in a single day on average since the start of June. Since the start of June, we have been a credentialed member of the media to several of the teams in the area and look to increase that in the Fall.

Ultimately everything we create is meant to be read/consumed by our readers, you.  Often it is tough to get a vibe on what is or isn’t working in terms of content. That is why we would greatly appreciate if you guys give your thoughts in the comment section of this post to help us curate better content.

One thing we are looking forward to in the Fall is more reader/writer interactions. We will start doing Q and A’s related to all the Boston sports teams as well as a live Fantasy Football podcast where we will take your lineup questions.

The launch of the Fantasy podcast has yet to be decided, but expect it ahead of week 1 of the NFL season with a draft podcast. We will also be launching a Fantasy Football league to run alongside it if interested in joining fill out the contact form below with your information.

Trifecta Network is a growing platform, we will always be free and made for our readers. We appreciate your readership and want to build the best product we can to ensure the best Boston sports experience in the city.

You may have noticed more video content on the site, it is an area we are looking to improve, but not focus solely on. Many sports sites are going away from traditional writing, a move that I believe is a mistake.

If you ever have any thoughts or comments please feel free to reach out to us.
