PRESS DAY | SEATTLE SUPERCROSS
2019 SEATTLE SUPERCROSS PRESS DAY INSIDE CENTURY LINK STADIUM
The 2019 Supercross series is in the Pacific Northwest this weekend for round twelve of the Monster Energy Supercross season in Seattle, Washington. The Seattle track is known for being muddy, soft and rutted, but so far the conditions are dry at the Seattle Seahawks CenturyLink field. MXA is on the scene to capture photos and videos and keep you updated with news and results. Ken Roczen, Chad Reed, Justin Brayton, Cole Seely and more were on the track spinning laps for press day and our cameras were out to catch all of the action. For the RAW practice video click here.
Ken Roczen has had two rough weekends in a row. After finishing eighth at the last two rounds Ken stated this in a Honda press release. “I had some struggles during the week and over the past couple of weeks that have really held me back and have made it so I can’t ride and train to my full potential. I’m trying to figure out what’s going on and hopefully get some answers soon. I’ve just been getting tired and I’m not sure why. Right now I’m just trying to focus on getting my body and everything aligned so that I can fight back and ride like I was during the beginning of the season.”
Justin Brayton is getting closer to the end of his season. While most of the Supercross riders also race in the Pro Motocross series, Justin Brayton has switched up his schedule for the last three years. Now Justin races Supercross in America then he takes the summer off and then races the Australian Supercross Championship in the fall along with multiple European off-season SX events in between the two.
Ken Roczen was having some fun and throwing some massive whips in press day.
Jimmy Decotis was looking fast and he also had some fun.
Up close on the rolling sand whoops. Many riders and fans have voiced their opinions about having sand on a Supercross track, but it seems like the Dirt Wurx crew did an awesome job with this section. Because the sand is only in a straightaway and not in a turn, we shouldn’t experience the problem everyone complains about, which is a one-lined section.
MXA‘s assistant editor Josh Mosiman was caught talking on the phone before filming his first raw press day practice video. Check out the video here.
