In front of a sold-out crowd at Angel Stadium in Anaheim, Calif., Monster Energy Supercross kicked off its 2017 season Saturday night with an action-packed event.

While much of the focus was on who would make the first statement in a stacked 450SX Class, the 250SX riders were not to be outdone. We saw close battles throughout the night, dramatic crashes and another first time winner in front of the Anaheim faithful.

Enjoy the highlights from the Anaheim season opener.

Round 2 from San Diego, Calif., will air next Saturday (1/14) at 10 p.m. ET / 7 p.m. PT on FS1.
