Christian Craig was supposed to race the 250 West Coast series, but he was injured before it started. Craig is now healthy and ready to race 250 East. He rode press day in Minneapolis.
We are getting geared up for the sixth round of the 2019 Monster Energy Supercross series in Minneapolis, Minnesota. The race is held inside U.S. Bank Stadium where the Minnesota Vikings play. This is the same stadium that the Philadelphia Eagles played the New England Patriots last year in the Super Bowl–but who cares.
We are excited heading east as we finally get covered stadiums equaling good track conditions. Although the temperature outside today in Minneapolis was zero or below for press day. We had our photog Brian Converse cover what was going on and who was getting some seat time on the track. This race will also be the first 250 East Coast round. The 250 East class is stacked with many top riders. Below is a link to the entry list to this weekends riders. .
