Monday Kickstart – Las Vegas SX

The 2011 Monster Energy Supercross Series came to a close Saturday night at Sam Boyd Stadium in Las Vegas, Nevada, and thousands of fans in attendance got to witness what went down in Sin City. Here’s what you probably didn’t get to see, though…

At the final round of the 2011 Monster Energy Supercross season no one could have predicted what was about to unfold throughout the night. The tight championship battles led to increased excitement, and also a sold out Sam Boyd Stadium.

As the riders exit the stadium, they go around a long flat left handed turn that eventually comes back into the stadium, which is know as “Monster Alley.” The high-speed straight goes straight into a single jump that riders air out.

High winds and high heat made it hard for the Dirt Wurx crew to keep water on the track. As the wind picked up, and as the riders hit the track, it quickly turned into a dust bowl early on in the day. When it came down to the night show, the winds eventually died off a little, and it made for some great racing.

In the outdoor series, Fox tattoos are a common appearance throughout the pits. However, it’s not often that we see an Alpinestars tattoo…
