2022 ANAHEIM 3 SUPERCROSS PRE-RACE REPORT: NO LIVE TV BROADCAST
Anaheim 3 Supercross is up next and it’s set to be another exciting one. Although Eli Tomac broke the streak of new 450SX Main Event winners each weekend by winning both A2 and Glendale, there’s still a few riders who are capable of winning this Saturday to shake things up again.
Sadly, Round 6 at Anaheim won’t be on LIVE TV. With the NBC Sports Channel going away and all of it’s programs be shifted around (mostly to the Peacock Premium online streaming service), things got a little messy for linear viewing of Supercross in 2022. Now we have Supercross being shown on three different networks (CNBC, USA and NBC) throughout the season. See below to learn more about Peacock and to check the streaming schedule for this weekend.

JUSTIN COOPER | BROKEN FOOT
Justin Cooper stated: “Hey guys unfortunately I had a crash yesterday at the track. I got a little bit off line in a rhythm and didn’t get the lift for the next triple and cased it pretty hard which was fine. Almost had it saved and when I finally laid it down my foot got pinched under the footpeg. That being said it turns out i have broken and dislocated 4 metatarsals and have some fractures in the center of my foot as well. Will most likely get surgery early next week. Not the way I wanted to start the year off, everything has been going really good until this. This is called a Lisfranc injury and will probably put me off the bike for about 6 months. Tough pill to swallow but this is part of life and you have these obstacles. How you overcome these difficulties is what defines you. I’ll keep you guys updated once I know more, it’s all very fresh so just giving a quick update on what I know so far. I will be missing all of SX, hopefully will be good to go for MX”
COLT NICHOLS | INJURED BOTH ARMS
Colt Nichols posted via instagram: “It’s been a tough week, but I wanted to share a quick update with everyone. Unfortunately, my season was over before it started with my crash in the heat race last Saturday. I ended up breaking both arms and had surgery as well as a quick little skin graft to help with the burns on my back from when the bike landed on me. I should be heading home any day to begin the recovery process.
Life doesn’t always make sense, but we must get back up and keep going. Just like my championship post said last May — To Hell And Back — because I’ve overcome far too much to stop now. Appreciate all the messages and support more than you can imagine.”
