Zach Osborne victorious at Toronto SX
- Press Release -
The Rockstar Energy Husqvarna Factory Racing Team went international for the ninth round of AMA Supercross, held at the Rogers Centre in Toronto, Ontario on Saturday. Zach Osborne excited the crowd with his second victory of the season in the 250SX East class. He currently has a comfortable lead in 250 rider point standings. Teammate Dean Wilson earned another top-10 finish in the 450 class, while Jason Anderson suffered from a flat front tire.
Zach Osborne displayed impressive speed the entire day. After qualifying first aboard his Husqvarna FC 250, he started in the top-10 in his heat and came through the pack to finish third and earn a transfer position to the main. In the main, he pulled a top-five start and navigated his Husqvarna FC250 into third by the end of the first lap. He stayed on the gas and put in some impressive laps before making the pass for the lead in lap seven. He soon started pulling away, and held on for the win and a nearly 10 second lead. He is currently leading in 250SX East rider point standings.
“Collectively, it was a great day for us,” said Osborne. “I was fastest in every session. I didn’t get a great start in my heat race. I spun a little bit behind the gate and ended up third. I got off to a good start in the main and was right in the mix, around third or fourth, and just kind of let the race play out in front of me. I took the lead and never looked back. It’s pretty unreal.”
