2019 MONSTER ENERGY CUP SUPERCROSS | BEST IN THE PITS GALLERY

The 2019 Monster Energy Cup Supercross is here and we are getting ready for an exciting day of racing. The Monster Cup was starting to feel a little slim on riders when you think about guys like Cooper Webb, Jason Anderson Ken Roczen, Zach Osborne and Marvin Musquin not competing. But with riders like Chad Reed, Jeremy Martin and Malcolm Stewart coming back from injury, Adam Cianciarulo making his 450 Supercross debut, MXGP rider Tim Gajser coming back to race Monster Cup for the second time, Mike Alessi racing on a two-stroke, the unique track design, the joker lane, the Amateur All-Stars and Superminis, it’s shaping up to be one exciting night of racing. MXA’s Travis Fant is in Las Vegas at the Sam Boyd Stadium and he walked around the pits and grabbed these photos of the bikes while they still look nice and fresh before the gate drops.
