Press day was bigger than usual due to both the East and the West 250 riders.
The 2019 Supercross series makes its way to Atlanta, Georgia to be hosted inside Mercedes Benz Stadium for the ninth round of the series. The Atlanta round is somewhat special due to it being the first of two 250 East/West Shootouts. This will be the first round of the year that both the West and East riders face off. It is even more interesting that the two riders with the points lead on both coasts are teammates. How will is go down? Will there be team tactics? Or will they both go for the win to see who is the better rider. Our photog, Brian Converse checked out press day and captured some cool shots from behind his lens.
