AMA Supercross January 10, 2015 | Phoenix, AZ Results’s Weston Peick was the top Yamaha rider, finishing fourth aboard his YZ450F in a competitive 22-bike field, with teammate Justin Barcia finishing just outside the top 10 after rebounding from a poor start. Peick is now fifth in points in the 450SX class after two of 17 rounds.

In the 450SX class, Barcia finished third in the first heat to transfer to the main event, although Peick had to qualify through one of the semis, which he won. Then in the 20-lap main event, Peick made a terrific start, getting through the first corner behind Ken Roczen, Eli Tomac and Ryan Dungey. He then moved into third on the second lap and maintained a podium position until he rolled an ankle casing a jump on lap 17, which ultimately allowed Dungey to pass. Despite the injury, Peick finished his best-ever fourth place. However Barcia didn’t fare as well, pulling a wheelie at the start and then battling forward from the back of the pack to finish 11th. “I have been working really hard during the off season and was stoked to get such an awesome start,” Peick said. “After passing Dungey early I just rode my own race and stayed consistent. If it wasn’t for rolling my ankle I think I would have had a podium finish.”
