Supercross News
Justin Hill hits top form in San Diego


Posted: Tuesday, 13th February, 2018 : 7:41 AM - - 860 Reads




Defending 250SX West class champions Justin Hill has got his first runs on the board for 2018 with an imprssive win at Monster Energy Supercross sixth round in San Diego on Saturday night.

The Autotrader Yoshimura Suzuki Factory Racing Team rider logged the fastest lap time in qualifying, won his heat race, and meticulously picked apart the competition in winning the 250 Main Event in front of 41,237 fans.

Hill rode with speed and confidence from the very first lap of practice, jumping rhythm sections on his RM-Z250 that only a few of the 450 riders were clearing. The reigning champion clicked-off the fastest 250 qualifying lap and used the first gate choice in his heat race to clear the field and win in convincing fashion. The Oregon native started the Main Event in third place and methodically paced leader Adam Cianciarulo for 11 laps. Hill passed for the lead and stormed away for the win and is now only 12 points out of third place in the standings.


A good jump helped propel Hill to his first win of 2018.
 
“Perfect days don’t come very often, so I’m basking in the goodness of going 1-1-1…fastest qualifier, heat win and Main Event win," a greatful Hill reflected. "Everything was clicking with the team and my RM-Z250. I was ripping the whoops and rhythms in practice, doing what I needed to do to get the top qualifying time. We watched film after practice and decided to leave the bike alone, because it was working really well.

“My strategy in the Main Event was to calculate everything around me," Hill continued. "At one point I thought I could trail him [Adam Cianciarulo] and execute a wham-bam pass towards the end. Then I realised there were some people behind us that were riding well, and if we tangled it could jeopardise the win. I started increasing my intensity and pressing harder. I knew I had the speed. For the most part I was trying to be calm about picking up the pace and not do anything rash. I had good runs through the whoops and knew where I could gain. The pass was made before the whoops so I could pull away in the sand section. I had a couple ideas on accident avoidance in order to stay ahead. Once I got a small gap I tried to get back into a zone click away good laps.”

Hill now takes a four week break as the 250 East series starts at Arlington Texas next week.
