Hansen has Heart: Anaheim 2 Supercross

Hot 100 grabbed the holeshot and held off challenges from Ken Roczen (194) and Eli Tomac (19), who would both end up on the podium with him.  Hansen swept Anaheim in 2011, winning both A1 and A2.
It was Josh Hansen's turn to have a tough night of racing.  After he set fastest lap in 250 practice, he crashed hard in the whoops, breaking bones and fingers in his left hand.  Lesser men would have called it a night (and maybe a championship), but Hansen gutted it out and pushed his bike to the starting line for his heat (which he won) and the 250 main (which he also won, after dispatching a challenge from Eli Tomac).  Hansen WANTS IT.
