With the 2014 Monster Energy Supercross title likely getting wrapped up this weekend, it’s time to review the respective championship efforts of the top five riders this season.
Felipe Massa admits he’s been frustrated by the bad luck that has cost him a lot of points in the early races of the season.
In China he was wet set in sixth when there was a delay at his first pit stop after it was realized that the crew was trying to fit the left rear tire on the right, and vice versa.
Cal Crutchlow will not be fit in time to represent Ducati Team in Argentina as he continues to recover from his accident in Austin and subsequent surgery.
After Crutchlow’s crash in the race at Austin, the British rider had initially been diagnosed with a dislocated right little finger, but further checks at a specialized centre in San Diego revealed that he had also suffered a tiny fracture of the finger and as a result it was decided that he should undergo a small operation to insert a stabilizing pin.
This weekend will mark the first time that the Monster Energy Supercross series will race at MetLife Stadium in East Rutherford, NJ.
Ryan Villopoto will attempt to capture his fourth consecutive 450SX Class Championship at the MetLife Stadium, which is home to the New York Giants and the New York Jets of the National Football League (NFL).
