Can you believe it’s almost over? After months of traveling around the country, full weeks spent in cities like Houston, Indianapolis, Orlando, Arlington, and Atlanta, the 2021 Monster Energy Supercross Series is in its final days. We’re closing out an incredible tour in a place that feels like SX’s second home, and the first race of two at Rice-Eccles Stadium will go down as one of the year’s best.

Going into Saturday night’s Main Events, we expected at least one title to be awarded a round early. Christian Craig’s absence due to a broken leg gave Colt Nichols a clear path to the 250 East Coast region championship, but the Main Event went to Jo Shimoda, a first-time winner and the only person that could keep the number one plate in the box. Cooper Webb’s Heat Race pace made him a favorite for the Main Event until Ken Roczen got to the early lead and sped away from the rest of the pack. Just when it seemed like things were set, Roczen slid out and gave Marvin Musquin a clear run to the checkered flag.

There’s a lot to go over from round sixteen, so here’s Kickstart.
