Justin Barcia 2022 Anaheim 1 Supercross-9441


The 2022 Monster Energy Supercross season is about to get under way and we caught the riders in their final day of practice before the lights turn on, the fireworks go off and the gate drops for the 2022 season. Eli Tomac was looking fast on his new Star Racing Yamaha Yz450F and immediately out of the gate, he and Cooper Webb were riding together, flexing their skills. Cooper started first and Eli passed him on lap two. Most riders would take it easy and let their competition go after they passed them on the opening laps of press day, but Cooper Webb isn’t most riders. He trailed Eli for the next 4-5 laps until finally pulling off to talk to his mechanic Carlos. Justin Barcia also looked froggy as usual as well as Ken Roczen, Jason Anderson and Aaron Plessinger.
