Shane McElrath put forth three solid rides in the 250SX West division of the AMA Monster Energy Supercross championship at Angel Stadium, Anaheim, CA, last weekend to claim his first victory of the season with 3-2-1 finishes.

The Troy Lee Designs/Red Bull/KTM Factory Racing rider was satisfied to see his hard work in the off season pay off after he admitted being unable to find his groove and bike setup in a racing situation in the previous two rounds.

McElrath maintained a solid pace throughout the evening, consistently placing his KTM 250 SX-F atop the podium in each of the three Main Events. Beginning with a third-place finish in Main Event 1, McElrath continued to progress with each race and by the final race, McElrath was able to battle his way to victory with a strong finish to the night.

‰ÛÏWe‰Ûªve been learning a lot throughout the season so far," McElrath explained. "I mean, we had a really good off-season but you can‰Ûªt really do bike setup without going to the races and that‰Ûªs my comfort ‰ÛÒ that‰Ûªs really what we‰Ûªve been searching for. The last two weekends have been upsetting because of the way I‰Ûªve been riding but we‰Ûªve just kept pushing ‰ÛÒ perseverance produces hope, so this is good for us.‰Û
