VIDEO Talking Supercross – What Is New For 2018?

One question, 7 top Supercross racers’ answers

The most anticipated Supercross race of the year is A1, and when we, the press, show up the day before we get a small window to ask a few questions of the riders who’ve been invited to press day. As our introductory question we figured asking what’s different for 2018 might elicit a few more unique answers than would the typical, “How’s training? How’s the bike? How’s the team?” questions. We grabbed Monster Energy/Knich/Yamaha Factory Racing’s Justin Barcia and Cooper Webb, CR22 Racing’s Chad Reed, Red Bull KTM’s Marvin Musquin, Autotrader/Yoshimura/Suzuki Factory Racing’s Westin Peick, Monster Energy Kawasaki’s Josh Grant, and Team Honda HRC’s Ken Roczen. Some have a lot of changes to their 2018 program, whereas some don’t have very many at all. Reed’s team is another self-supported owner-racer program on Husqvarnas, while Barcia is back on a Yamaha that is all new for 2018. Other than missing a teammate (Ryan Dungey) Marvin’s program seems to be the least changed. Enjoy!
