2019 SAN DIEGO SUPERCROSS | BEST IN THE PITS
Cooper Webb ran the red plate for the first time in his 450 career in San Diego. He left San Diego without it.
So far the 2019 Supercross season has been an exciting roller coaster ride and we are loving it! Round five was held inside Petco Park. MXA is in San Diego to document all of the excitement that went on at round 5. While we were waiting for the racing to start, we hit the pits to get up close and personal with all of the cool Military appreciation themed bikes.
The Pro Circuit team went all out as well. Even Adam Cianciarulo’s numbers are military themed.
Up close on Justin Hill’s shiny JGR Suzuki RM-Z450.
Cole Seely’s HRC Honda is looking really cool too.
Eli Tomac’s Kawasaki has the Air Force theme to it and it’s rightly so because Eli’s brother, Greg is a pilot in the Air Force. The Tomac brothers definitely have the “need for speed.”
Justin Brayton’s Bullfrog /Smartop/ MotoConcepts Honda CRF450 had red camo.
Many teams have brought two different bikes for their riders. One for the rain and one if the rain isn’t bad. The Smartop Honda team used their practice bikes when it poure down rain. This is Brayton’s race bike. You can tell by the hydraulic clutch.
Michael Mosiman’s Rockstar Husqvarna FC250.
Blake Baggett’s Rocky Mountain ATV/MC-KTM-WPS 450SXF.
Justin Barcia’s YZ450 was ready to play in the mud. But in the end, he ended up not finishing the San Diego race.
The AJE Motorsports Gas Monkey Energy Husqvarna graphics stand out! Chris Blose was their only rider at San Diego. His teammates Justin Starling and Dylan Merriam both were injured. Starling expects to return for the first East/West showdown at the Atlanta Supercross and Dylan is unsure when he will return.
Dylan Ferrandis’ Monster Energy Star Racing Yamaha bike had a cool color mix.
Colt Nichols will ran the red plate for the four races in a row. He will not be wearing it next week because the 250 West goes on a break and the 250 East start in Minneapolis.
Marvin Musquin’s bike is ready.
