FACES OF SUPERCROSS | 2019 DAYTONA SUPERCROSS
Ricky Carmichael has been quoted saying that the 2019 Monster Energy Supercross season has been the best season of racing ever in the 450 class. There have been so many surprises and exciting moments this year and now with another wild card event like Daytona, we can’t wait to see what will happen next. The Daytona Supercross track is completely different from any other track in the series and our photographer Brian Converse was on the scene during the track walk to grab photos of the top riders before they gear up for qualifying.

Ryan Sipes hangs out at the riders meeting. He has a big week ahead of him. He’s racing Supercross on Saturday, the Wild Boar GNCC off-road race on Sunday and the Daytona TT flat track race later in the week.
Trey Canard is in Florida with the Factory HRC Honda team. During the week he has been helping the team with testing bikes and when he’s at the races his purpose is to be a helping hand to Cole Seely and Ken Roczen. He looks for lines on the track that could help the Honda riders, and he watches the bikes to see if he thinks they need to make any changes.
