2020 SAN DIEGO SUPERCROSS | BEST IN THE PITS GALLERY: MILITARY APPRECIATION DETAILS

The 2020 San Diego Supercross is getting set to go and the mechanics and crew members have the bikes and rigs all shined up and ready for the military appreciation weekend at round six of the 2020 Monster Energy Supercross series. Before press day riding gets under way, MXA’s Daryl Ecklund made a trip through the SX pits in downtown San Diego to check out all the cool military themed graphics and to get up close and personal with the bikes and teams as they prepare for the big show. In this artcle, we added our favorite photos from the pits and our favorite photos of Ken Roczen, Josh Hansen, Adam Cianciarulo and more during press day. To get the TV schedule, parking information and more, check out our pre-race report by clicking here.

Zach Osborne 2020 San Diego Supercross-4857Zach Osborne’s bike under the Rockstar Husqvarna tent. Notice the tree in the middle of the pits? Instead of the teams pitting in a big open parking lot like they do at most stadium, the rigs park in a regular downtown parking lot in San Diego. The lot has trees and curbs all throughout. This makes parking much more difficult for the drivers.

The truck drivers are no joke when it comes to setting up camp for the weekend. Some teams have nail guns that easily shoot through the asphalt to stake down the awnings and banners.

This is one way to be efficient. Lots of teams and riders are using electric scooters to move around the pits with ease. The scooters are extra nice in San Diego because the pits are so far from the stadium.
