Chad Reed throws a Nac-Nac in Daytona during press day.
The tenth round of the AMA Monster Energy Supercross is in Daytona, Florida. We are now more than half way through the season and Cooper Webb has won half of the races in the 450 class. Ken Roczen sits second, 13 points behind Webb. Roczen seems super calm, cool and collected so far this season. Maybe Kenny is just waiting for Webb to make a mistake? Marvin Musquin sits third in points and is only four points behind Roczen. And you can never count out Eli Tomac who is sits fourth, 22 points from leading the championship. We had our photographer, Brain Converse cover press day in Daytona. Riders like the GOAT Ricky Carmichael, Austin Forkner, Eli Tomac and last year’s winner Justin Brayton were throwing down laps to get some time on the track.

Remember Ryan Sipes? He made a transition from Supercross to off-road. Now he has the goal of becoming the best all-around rider on two-wheels. Ryan is racing three different disciplines in six days, Daytona Supercross, the Wild Boar GNCC off-road race and the Daytona TT Flat track race.
Sipes will be racing a KTM in Daytona with the number 264. This bike is not a full-factory by any means. He is just a Red Bull rider.
We got to chat with Martin Davalos during press day.
