Monster Energy Supercross: Ryan Dungey Continues to Struggle As Eli Tomac Wins Fourth Straight Race In Detroit

Published

on

Eli Tomac Is Unstoppable

450 Class:

Marvin Musquin had one of his best starts of the season as he grabbed the holeshot with Eli Tomac close behind. Once again Ryan Dungey had a bad start as he got stuck in the first turn pile up. He was 11 after the start and 7th after the first lap. Dungey would have to fight his way through the pack if he wanted to keep the point lead. With Marvin Musquin out front the hope was that he would be able to slow down Tomac and allow Dungey to catch up. That did not happen as Tomac passed Musquin and quickly put space between the two. Dungey was able to fight and get on the podium with a third place finish.

This was Tomac’s fourth-straight win as he is unstoppable right now. He is just feeling it right now.

“I’m putting myself in a good position in the main event. I didn’t do that in the heat race, but got my act together for the main and was able to capitalize,” said Tomac. “I felt very fortunate for having that ninth gate pick. I just felt good and comfortable. This is what we wanted tonight on this sketchy surface and I was able to attack it. It was another really good night of racing.”

Ryan Dungey has had some tough starts of late which has allowed Tomac to put space between the two in the races and make up points in the standings.

“I think the hardest thing is where we’ve been during the first lap over the past few races,” said Dungey. “I can’t do anything back there. Eli is out front and I’m not able to do anything. But we did charge hard for third. We have to put ourselves in a better position at the start but we’ll work through it. We need to start turning it up here over the next few races.”

250 Class:

Going into Detroit Zach Osborne held the red plate as the points leader. Osborne had a decent start but he was cut off from a rider cutting across to the inside and a big pileup ensued and Osborne went down as Adam Cianciarulo took the holeshot with Dylan Ferradis close behind. Osborne then had to return to the mechanics area for some repairs where he had his front tire replaces. Once he rejoined the race he was 22 and 2 laps back. Then about halfway through lap on Ferrandis made the pass on Cianciarulo. Shortly after Cianciarulo and Ferrandis made a mistake and Joey Savatgy jumped into the lead. Nest Cianciarulo went down allowing Jordon Smith and Ferrandis to get past. A bit later Savatgy went down and Ferrandis took over first. The Frenchman held the lead for another few laps until Smith and Savatgy took it back. The two battled intensely making contact two or three times, but Smith was able to pull out the victory

Since Osborne had that crash and finished in the bottom Savatgy will now bear the red plate as they head to St. Louis for round 13

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.
