The 2019 Monster Energy Supercross season is in Indianapolis, Indiana for round eleven of the season. Our photographer Brian Converse was on the scene to grab some photos and videos while the top guys got some extra seat time in on the track.
Every city and stadium has different dirt which means the traction and ruts develop differently at each venue. It’s a great advantage to the riders who get to ride the track on press day because they get to learn the jumps and get a feel for the dirt before they race on it. Press day is a great opportunity for riders to try to make adjustments to their bike and look at lines on the track without the pressure of race day. The JGR Suzuki team, Smartop Bullfrog Spas Motoconcepts Honda team, Geico Honda team and H.E.P. Suzuki teams were in Indianapolis early to get some extra time on the track. So far it’s shaping up nicely and we are excited to see the battles that will go on when the gate drops!
Chase Sexton is in Indianapolis a day early to ride in the press day. He is currently tied with Justin Cooper for second place in the 250 East point standings, 23 points behind Austin Forkner.
Chad Reed is still wearing the censored logos on his visor. If you haven’t heard about the ban that the AMA put on promoting CBD products click here to learn what it’s all about.
Alex Martin has been quick this season, but he hasn’t been able to get on the podium yet. After a fifth place in Daytona he will surely be striving for the podium this Saturday.
Justin Brayton sits eighth in the 450 Championship point standings. He’s 10 points behind Chad Reed who is seventh and 22 points behind Dean Wilson who is sixth.
Chad Reed turned 37 years old today, can you believe that? Every year he says that it might be his last, but from the outside looking in it seems like he isn’t stopping anytime soon.
