Monday Kickstart – St. Louis

One of the most exciting Monster Energy Supercross series in recent memory is quickly coming to a close, and the action at round 14 in St. Louis didn’t disappoint. James Stewart finally got another win after a winless streak since Anahiem II, Barcia took home his third win of the season, and much more. For all that went down both on the track and in the pits, though, check out this week’s Monday Kickstart. Enjoy!

Most of the riders had nothing but good to say about the track in St. Louis. According to the track map, though, it was slightly different than what was originally planned. The old track map had the track cutting across the start line a couple times, but as you can see that wasn’t the case in the final product.

There were also some rollers in the first turn that got removed and another section was changed before the start of the final qualifying practice.
Following the first practice session, a few riders voiced their opinions about one section in particular where a roller before a double was causing a lot of riders trouble. Here, Ryan Villopoto and Chris Blose talk about their concerns with FIM official John Gallager.

St. Louis was also the track last year that caused Villopoto to get thrown violently over the bars and ultimately end his season with a badly broken leg.
The roller leading up to the double ended up getting almost removed completely before the final SX class practice session hit the track. Here, Short and Blose look on while the Dirt Wurx crew does their thing.

With nearly a 10-minute break while the track crew made the change to the track before the final practice, Kevin Windham decided to dial in his opening ceremonies transfer section. We showed you a sequence of the one he did in Texas last week, but here’s another of the one he pulled off in St. Louis.

While K-Dub’s transfer is impressive in the previous sequence, it’s almost child’s play when compared to what he actually does when the show begins. With the lights off, and lit by nothing but a couple spotlights, Windham hit the same jump.
