Press Release from Yamaha: As Yogi Berra once said, “It’s déjà vu all over again” with the 2017 Monster Energy Supercross Championship returning to (speaking of baseball) Angel Stadium of Anaheim this Saturday for Round Three of the series.
The Monster Energy/Yamalube/Chaparral/Yamaha Financial Services/Yamaha Factory Racing Team and its riders–two-time Supercross Champion Chad Reed (#22) and two-time 250 West Supercross Champion Cooper Webb (#2)–will be working hard to ensure that it’s not completely déjà vu, and that they will come away from “A2” with much better results than they had at “A1” to start the 2017 season.
Chad commented, “The year sure hasn’t started as planned for me. I’ve run into some issues at both of the first two rounds, so I’m looking to turn things around, starting this weekend at A2.”
“I’m really looking forward to Anaheim 2,” Cooper said. “With it being the third round, and being at Anaheim once again, we’ve been there once, so it’s going to be good to go back there and have a little better feel for it, to know the dirt and know the stadium. I feel like I’ve made a lot of progress this week with the bike, and also, my attitude and my confidence. I’m anxious to get another race under my belt and try to improve and rebound from last weekend.”
