he 2018 supercross season kicked off last weekend and among all the hype and new riders, bikes, and gear, one of the coolest things in the pits was Bob Hannah, in town to see the race. We caught up with Bob to get some insight from him on what he thought of the racers at the opening round, and what he expects to see more of this season. Hannah speaks from experience that includes three Supercross championships (1977, 1978, and 1979). Hannah brings a very unique perspective to this because at the end of his third championship year he, like Ken Roczen last year, had an injury that threatened to completely end his racing career. Hannah’s injury was a badly broken leg from a water skiing accident, but like Roczen, Hannah returned to racing. Before we get into injuries and recoveries and the sport, we have some more general observations on the racers in the 450 class and how their 2018 supercross season started off.
