Qualifying easily into the main event Bowers had time to rest before the main event; where unfortunately he would start near the end of the pack. However, Tyler was soon picking off riders, and as the last lap ended; just narrowly missed passing Tye Simmonds for tenth overall. "I felt smooth and strong, but it was also a long race due to the injuries that I suffered at Salt Lake City. The track was a lot of fun, and I enjoyed it. I tried to pass my way into tenth in the last corner of the last lap but just missed out" commented Tyler.
