It rained Thursday night and the clouds were still around Friday morning in Anaheim.
WE BRING YOU BEHIND THE SCENES OF THE MONSTER ENERGY SUPERCROSS IN ANAHEIM
The third round of the 2020 AMA Monster Energy Supercross series is upon us this Saturday. We got down to Angels stadium early Friday morning the day before the race to see what was going on. With the semi trucks having to again drive from St. Louis to Anaheim it was a long week for the drivers. The factory team semi trucks were still pulling in and getting unloaded when we arrived. Many of the teams were just getting setup and pulling their bikes out. We take you on a first hand look behind the scenes on what goes on in the pits the day before the Anaheim 2 Supercross.
The BMX freestyle jumps were covered due to the Thursday night rain to keep them dry. Not to long after this shot they undercover the jumps and started riding.
