Monday Kickstart Presented by One Industries – Atlanta SX

The eighth round of the Monster Energy AMA Supercross series descended into the south this weekend in Atlanta, Georgia, and we were all witness to the best racing yet this season. Check out some of the stuff you may have missed below, including lots of pit photos, promo girls, and even the Volcom/RV2 contest winner…

5.	As you can imagine, a media melee broke out after the Supercross main event. Racing has been great all season, but it definitely skyrocketed to new levels in front of a live television audience. Each and every heat race (as well as the Lites main) served up great racing, but the 450 main event provided a crescendo to the action. Reedy and Stewie battled for 19 laps, and it boiled over on the final lap when the two crashed.

The PK Ripper in Hunter Hewitt’s pit was pretty dope. If we actually trained, we would definitely consider this set-up.

Until Kyle Chisholm recovers from his injuries that he suffered in Houston, Antonio Balbi will be his replacement. Balbi was on his way back to Brazil when he got the call from David Vuillemin to ride for MotoConcepts. Atlanta was his debut for the Yamaha team, and he finished the main with a 19th overall.

Matt Lemoine has been a Skullcandy rider for a few years now and usually has a pretty sweet custom-painted lid to prove it.
