PRESS DAY GALLERY | 2019 HANGTOWN NATIONAL
HANGTOWN MOTOCROSS CLASSIC PRESS DAY GALLERY
The 2019 Hangtown Press Day was originally scheduled for Thursday afternoon, but Mother Nature had other plans. With the rain that Sacramento experienced this week, the conditions on the track were muddy. Although Press Day was pushed back until Friday, the Amateur racing wasn’t canceled and they continued to race in the mud on Thursday and Friday. The Dirt Diggers crew got the equipment out and groomed the track before the 450 Pros began their 30-minute session. It started out soft, muddy and flat for the 450s, but within a few laps the whole thing was a rutted mess. The track was even tougher for the 250 session, but the riders pressed on. With lots of great riders, a challenging track and more rain in the forecast, the opening round of the 2019 Pro Motocross series should be interesting.
