LS2 Race Report: Glendale SX 2022

Updated: Feb 8, 2022


KYLE CHISHOLM

Kyle Chisholm has been on a tear as of late coming into the fifth round of Monster Energy Supercross. His speed is somehow improving week after week and he was ready to keep the ball rolling in Arizona. When practice began, Kyle took his time finding the race lines as he always does. The crafty veteran knows just how the track will develop and when it comes race time he comes alive. Kyle put in typical qualifying times as practice finished up and due to the triple crown format he was headed for the LCQ. Calmly and boldly, Kyle launched off the gate, made his way into the lead and again cruised to the win for his 3rd LCQ win in a row. Kyle did what he does best when Main Event time came as he just slowly chewed away at the guys in front of him. He would end up a very commendable 17th overall on the night.



CADE CLASON

Cade Clason has been on a steady track of improvement this season and he is really beginning to turn some heads. His finishes have been a direct reflection of his riding as his speed and more importantly, confidence are steadily building. Cade uncorked the main lines right away when practice began and used the rest of the sessions to improve his comfort. He headed to the LCQ ready to fight his way into the show. When the gate dropped, he found himself outside of qualifying position by the first corner. He remained calm as he knew he had the speed to move forward. He did just that and punched his ticket to the show. In the Main, Cade got a poor jump off the line but managed to put in 20 min plus of consistent fast laps. He would finish up 21st overall in Glendale.



JOAN CROs

Joan Cros, like his teammate, Pauli, has been a consistent force in Supercross and has continued to prove it all season. Staying on two wheels is one of his best attributes. Combine that with his fantastic starts and you're bound to find yourself getting better and better results. Joan took his time learning the track when practice began but once again had impressive speed. He easily qualified inside the top 30 and was ready to do battle in Arizona. When the gate finally dropped for his Heat race, Joan launched off the gate in typical fashion. He was pinched off quickly going into the first corner but he did his best to minimize the damage. He was just outside the top ten and would do his best to move forward, but would be forced to settle with calling it a night just a bit too early. On to A3.


BUBBA PAULI

Bubba Pauli just clicked off his 100th race in a row last weekend in Anaheim and he was ready to start his quest to 200 when the day began in Glendale. Bubba’s unmatched consistency and reliability as a face in the sport was recognized this week and it was a nice little confidence boost for him as well. When the practice sessions began, Bubba looked fiery as he charged the track with a purpose. His goal was to get in to the show and due to the triple crown format, they only guarantee the top 18 in qualifying times to the night show and the rest go to the dreaded LCQ. Bubba did all he could but unfortunately would come up just short and he would head to the LCQ. When this race began, he was pinched off quickly but never gave up. Bubba put in the work all the way to the end and would be forced to call it a night with dignity.
