SUPERCROSS

 

Monster Energy’s Eli Tomac does it again! The 450cc class point leader comes from behind once again to win the Detroit main event, while Monster Energy’s Cameron McAdoo takes 2nd in the 250cc race and remains 2nd overall in 250cc class points. In front of a packed house at Detroit’s Ford Field, Eli Tomac made it three wins in a row on the Monster Energy AMA Supercross tour, overcoming a mediocre start and passing Jason Anderson at the main event’s midway point - never looking back en route to the decisive victory. The premier 450cc class win for Tomac, the 42nd of his career, moved him past Monster Energy-backed Ryan Villopoto and into 5th place on the all-time supercross victory list. In 250cc class racing in Detroit, Monster Energy/Pro Circuit/Kawasaki’s Cameron McAdoo continued to shine on the podium, placing 2nd and staying within overall point striking distance of Eastern Supercross (ESX) point leader.

OFFROAD

 

What started as a PR event to promote a Nevada casino’s deer hunt, became one of the crown jewels of off-road racing in the U.S. The Mint 400 was lost for a period of time, but it was resurrected and still runs flat-out across the arid Nevada desert – with Monster Energy racers making ‘The Mint’ a Must-Hit on their list of yearly off-road racing competitions.

 

This year’s glitzy Mint 400 featured hundreds of entries over more than 50 classes, with the premier four-wheel classes (Trophy and Unlimited Trucks, UTVs) stacked with familiar Monster Energy drivers. Topping the field in the UTV Pro Turbo class, with the overall victory, was Monster Energy’s Dustin Jones (S3 Powersports/Can-Am). Jones nailed 1st place in the Limited UTV Pro Turbo class. Monster Energy’s Baja great Cameron Steele would run his Can-Am UTV to a respectable 4th place in the Pro Unlimited class.

 

In the Truck class, the Terrible Herbst/Monster Energy duo of Tim Herbst and Thor Herbst locked down runner-up 2nd place finishes at the Mint 400 in the Unlimited Truck and Unlimited Truck SPEC classes, respectively.

MMA

 

Mister Wonderful does it again! Monster Energy’s Phil Davis earns a dominant victory over Julius Anglickas at Bellator 276 on Saturday night. In the co-main event bout contested in the Light Heavyweight division, the 37-year-old from Harrisburg, Pennsylvania, went the distance for a unanimous decision victory after three rounds.
  
“Mr. Wonderful” Davis (24-6 MMA, 11-3 BMMA) stepped into the Octagon as the former Bellator Light Heavyweight Champion and No. 2-ranked fighter in the 205-pound division. In his most recent fight, Davis defeated Yoel Romero at Bellator 266 in September 2021. His opponent, Russian Julius Anglickas (10-3) was coming off a loss after challenging current Bellator Light Heavyweight Champion Vadim Nemkov at Bellator 268 in October 2021.

SKIING

 

He’s officially on a roll! Monster Energy team rider Birk Ruud claims first place in Men’s Freeski Slopestyle at the FIS World Cup in Tignes, France this weekend. In the event sanctioned by the International Ski Federation (FIS), the 21-year-old from Baerum, Norway, took home the win only weeks after earning a gold medal at the 2022 Winter Olympics in Beijing.
 
From March 10-12, 2022, the high-altitude ski resort in the French Alps hosted some of the best slopestyle skiers on the circuit. As the penultimate slopestyle event of the 2021/22 FIS Freeski World Cup season, Tignes provided a chance to earn points toward this season’s Crystal Globe trophies. With a 42-year history of hosting World Cup events, the resort near the Italian border provided the perfect backdrop for world-class riding.
