The inaugural FIM World Supercross Championship in Abu Dhabi at Etihad Arena was a thrilling spectacle, leaving fans on the edge of their seats with a night of high-octane action, unexpected twists, and a fair share of controversy.

The WSX main event delivered all the drama and intensity that fans had hoped for. In an incredible display of skill and determination, Joey Savatgy, riding for Rick Ware Racing, emerged as the victor. Savatgy’s performance in the bar-banging main event was nothing short of spectacular, as he battled his way to the top step of the podium. He showcased his resilience by finishing with a remarkable 1-4-2 record throughout the night, demonstrating that consistency and unwavering determination pay off in the world of Supercross.

Following closely behind Savatgy was Dean Wilson of Fire Power Honda, who put on an impressive performance throughout the event. Despite the intense competition and challenging track conditions, Wilson’s skills and commitment secured him a well-deserved second place in the overall standings.

Motoconcept’s Vince Friese also made a significant impact on the event, earning his place on the podium with tenacity and his aggressive riding style. Friese’s presence added an extra layer of excitement to the competition, making it a night to remember for Supercross fans.

Defending WSX Champion Ken Roczen faced a particularly tough battle as he aimed to retain his title. Throughout the night, Roczen had to overcome the significant disadvantage of starting from the back row in each of the three finals. Despite the odds stacked against him, Roczen’s determination and unwavering spirit were evident as he fought his way back through the pack in each race. His resilience made for an inspiring performance, even if he didn’t manage to secure a spot on the podium with 4th overall on the night.
