T-Minus 2 Days to A1 SX

Feld Motorsports never fails in teasing us one final time before Anaheim I, just as we think we cannot take the anticipation any longer. We cannot wait for the gate drop at the first round of the Monster Energy AMA Supercross Series, and we are betting that neither can you.
After hearing from the top 450 riders at the press conference, we think it’s safe to say we are not alone in our low-running patience. For each question asked, Chad Reed, Ryan Villopoto, James Stewart, and Justin Barcia volunteered a short-fused answer that ultimately translated to, “let’s stop talking, and start racing.” We couldn’t agree more.

Feld Motorsports asked Justin Barcia, Chad Reed, and James Stewart to join reigning champ Ryan Villopoto in fielding questions from Jeff Emig, Ralph Sheheen, and the attending media at Thursday’s press conference.

Dave Prater of Feld Motorsports presented Ryan Villopoto with his championship ring earned during the 2012 season to the clear delight of his competitors in attendance.

Perhaps the most rewarding part of the afternoon came with the quick track demo. It was great to see guys like Josh Hill (above), Josh Grant, and Trey Canard back on the track. We hope the sidelines stay empty throughout this 2013 season, and these guys have a full, healthy series.
