Mach 1 Yamaha’s Heath Voss and Eric Nye participated in a media day yesterday at San Francisco’s Pacific Bell Park to promote the 2004 race. A host of local television station’s turned out for the event that gave the media an opportunity to film Voss and Nye jumping the enormous triple. In addition, several reporters participated in the Motorcycle Safety Foundation’s ‘Dirt Bike School.’ Suzuki provided the bikes and class began.
At the end of the day, reporters were more than surprised at the athleticism required by supercross riders.
“I can’t believe the skills these guys have,” said Vernon Glenn, reporter for San Francisco’s KRON-4. “It’s hard enough to ride the bike, let alone jump so high.”
