Results: AMA motocross Fox Raceway round 1 qualifying
Adam Cianciarulo went fastest at in the 450 class at Pala to start his outdoor season in style but it was Alessandro Lupino who shocked the AMA regulars to go fifth fastest in his first ever AMA National riding a stock bike with just his own pipe and suspension bolted on!
In fact, Cianciarulo was the only American in the top five of their US National championship with former GP men Musquin, Roczen, Ferrandis second through fourth and Lupino still a GP rider in fifth. Supercross champ, Cooper Webb, was back in ninth with Eli Tomac back in tenth. It wasn’t a good session for the British riders either with Dean Wilson 15th and Max Anstie 17th – but it could all change in the races with the times very close!
In the 250 class young Aussie, Jett Lawrence, went quickest from Forkner and Cooper with big brother Hunter fast in fourth and former champ, Jeremy Martin, fifth as the big five and pre-season title favourites immediately jumped to the top of the timesheets.
