2021 Orlando One Supercross | Race Highlights
The 2021 Monster Energy Supercross Series will go down as one of the best years in the sport’s history thanks to days like the 2021 Orlando One Supercross. After six races in climate controlled venues, riders were thrown an added obstacle when a morning storm soaked the track at Camping World Stadium. Although the race wasn’t the mudder that many feared, the track was far from a perfect and forced riders had to manage their pace on the slick Florida clay, follow the few shallow grooves cut into the surface, make the most of the passing opportunities, and avoid mistakes during long motos.
Cooper Webb and Jett Lawrence came out on top in their respective Main Events. For Webb, this was a much-needed victory and he shrank Ken Roczen’s advantage in the 450 Class championship points. For Lawrence, this was a nice last boost of confidence going into the 250 East Coast’s extended break, while Colt Nichols and Christian Craig continued a run of podium finishes in their pursuit for the regional title.
