In the 250SX class Josh Cachia showed he had the speed needed to be competitive with the best SX riders in the world, however getting tangled up with other riders in both his heat and the LCQ cost Cachia a spot in the main event, while Mosig battled nerves which forced him to ride a tight throughout the night.
After sitting in a qualifying position in his heat race, Cachia was taken high by Travis Baker mid way through the race with both riders hitting the deck forcing both to head to the LCQ.
Cachia once again found the ground in the LCQ as all the riders piled into the second turn, leaving him no choice but to look towards round two at Phoenix next weekend.
Everything was going to plan, I got a good start, I was sitting in about 5th position I think, I was keeping my own." Cachia explained.
"I Made some little mistake's and a couple of dudes started to get by me. Then a guy tried to pull off an impossible pass that resulted in taking us both down, and that was that." added the disappointed JStar/JDR KTM rider.
For Kade Mosig both the day and the night program was a huge learning experience. Riding in front of a packed house at Anaheim against the worlds best riders played on his mind a little, with the Australian Pro Lites Supercross Championship third place finisher riding tight and nervous during his first AMA race.
"My nerves have been pretty high, I have just been trying to control them all day," said Mosig at the end of the night, " Just getting out on the track was such a good experience as you are lined up against the best riders in the world.
Obviously my pace isn't quite there yet, I was riding really really tight. I think I have a lot of things to work on, but I am here for the experience and it is a starting point for me really.
I am here to better my riding as a racer and from here on in trying to work mainly on my progress. Mosig concluded.
