Everything is set for the 2014 Monster Energy Cup in Las Vegas, Nevada, and riders have just cleared the course from this morning’s track walk. This year’s course should make for exciting racing, as it looks to be very fast but with obstacles that will set the field apart as the laps click off. So much action is packed in the nine hours we have today at Sam Boyd Stadium, since the pits and parking lot have become one massive festival that builds excitement for the racing. Watch as the field is set for tonight’s action with timed qualifying sessions, the first of which have just hit the track.
Turn your television to FOX SPORTS 2 for the night's racing as it unfolds 9:00PM ET/6:00PM PT. Be sure to check your local listings for complete details on FOX SPORTS 2. The race will be aired again in its entirety on Sunday afternoon at 1:00PM ET/10:00AM PT on FOX SPORTS 1. Alright, let's get to the real preview, where we've complied the top picks for the weekend off of the small list of "confirmed" riders on the Monster Energy Cup website.
It's worth noting Ken Roczen and Ryan Villopoto are not competing at all. Sorry that some of the photos are months old, but seeing everyone in new threads on new bikes makes this weekend even better.
Best believe we will be at the track all weekend, and you can catch what we see through our Instagram account @twmxdotcom…
