You know you're hot when it's news when you lose. So Damon Bradshaw didn't. Bradshaw, 19, "The Beast from the East" from Mooresville, N.C., has owned the west with three consecutive victories, at Houston, Seattle and Anaheim. Add the Coors Light Challenge at San Diego Jack Murphy Stadium to the growing list of conquests. The current AMA Camel Supercross leader added to his points lead with a convincing victory over Kawasaki's Mike Kiedrowski and Honda's Jean-Michel Bayle in front of 36,796.
