Supercross Pros respond to coronavirus on social media

SUPERCROSS POSTPONED: THE RIDERS RESPOND TO THE CHAOS OF THE CORONAVIRUS AND THE POSTPONED 2020 SUPERCROSS SEASON

The Coronavirus has caused mass chaos around the world and as we learn more about the virus, we are still saddened that the 2020 Monster Energy Supercross season has been postponed, but we understand more the necessity of it. The top Pros of Supercross have taken to social media to share their thoughts on the whole situation and share with their fans photos and videos of them from previous racing and from current training amidst the pandemic. In this article Adam Cianciarulo shares a photo from his first day riding since his broken collarbone in Arlington, Ken Roczen shares his concerns about rescheduling the series, Chad Reed shares his opinion on it while his wife Elli stirs up some exciting rumors about her husband possibly racing again? It’s hard to think that Chad would compete again in 2021, but at the same time, it’s hard to imagine Supercross without him. Other riders also weigh in on the COVID-19/Coronavirus situation via social media.

So bummed not to get to race this weekend in one of my favorite cities and stadiums
Though I don’t share the same fears, I respect felds position .
It hit home when I was cancelling the rest of the seasons flights and hotels
Surreal feeling for sure, but I’m excited to keep working away on my riding and fitness
Let’s hope we’re back racing SOON!”

Chad Reed's wife hints at one more seasonChad Reed’s wife Ellie posted: (@mrstwotwo) “I’m sorry to say at this rate we may never get to retire. I will admit I cried last week after missing Daytona because I was processing the emotions knowing that the count down was on till it was all over and 22 retires…. then the world shuts down and we are like wtf we don’t want to go out like this – we’re just warming up…. “one last ride again?” 😂🤷🏽‍♀️🙈hopefully this all passes quickly and we can resume racing soon! This is disappointing for everyone but just know we are so thankful for all the 22 fans !! Your love and support on this tour has made it amazing!! @crtwotwo will be on track as soon as they let them race again!
Listening to podcasts is still acceptable and safe so go check that out. 3rd episode came out yesterday! @justkeeptalkingpodcast 🎙❤️”

Looking forward to my hometown race in Indianapolis. That is, if we get to race. Either way it’s going to be pretty crazy if there’s no spectators. Corona is taking over.”
