2020 ANAHEIM 1 SUPERCROSS | PRESS DAY
2020 ANAHEIM 1 MONSTER ENERGY SUPERCROSS | PRESS DAY
The Friday before the 2020 Anaheim 1 Supercross, Press Day was held. It is generally always the same. Crowed, busy and a ridiculous hype around the season opener. However, this year was a bit different. They brought up all the team managers in front of the media as we got to ask them questions. It was nice have a different perspective coming into a new year of racing instead of the usual rider comments.
This press day was also an emotional one. This year will be Chad Reed‘s 18th season racing professionally on U.S. turf. It will also be his last. After Ricky Carmichael praised Chad for his amazing, long career, Ricky asked him a simple question that opened up a lot of emotions for Chad. Ricky asked ,”what’s going through your head right now.” Not long into his answer Chad’s eyes started filling up with tears. He had as an amazing ride, although he said it was time to move on to something different. He now has a passion for racing cars, which will be his next endeavor in life.
The rest of the day was business as usual. The top 450 SX riders talked about training in the off season, how they liked their bikes and what their goals were for 2020. Duh guys, to win of course. After all the riders talked, they got out onto the track to spin some laps for the media.
