The Anaheim 1 Supercross is almost here and it’s ready to kick off the 2023 Monster Energy Supercross season this upcoming Saturday, January 7th, at Angel Stadium in Anaheim, California.
This Saturday will be the 80th time that Supercross has raced in the Angel Stadium, which is the most races of any venue by far. It’s also the 32nd time that Anaheim has been the season opener in 50 years of Supercross. Of the riders racing the 450 class weekend, there are four riders who’ve won this race before. Ken Roczen has won four times, Justin Barcia has won twice, while Marvin Musquin and Jason Anderson have each one win at the A1 Supercross. Although the first race is important, we should point out that Cooper Webb and Eli Tomac, both two-time 450SX Champions, haven’t won A1 before. Only 17 of the 49 previous 450 season-opener winners have gone on to win the title and the last time this happened was with Ryan Villopoto in 2012.
