Round 2 or 6 of Monster Energy AMA Supercross was held this past weekend in Oakland. And while there were a TON of great quotes during the press conference and such, we went deeper. And got things riders 100000000 PERCENT DID NOT SAY.
Without further ado, these are things that definitely WERE NOT said by the riders or personnel after the second round of the 2023 Monster Energy Supercross Championship, but we all know they were thinking it.
Will Christien: “The producer throws it to me when there hasn’t been any passing on the track in a while, because as sure as a bear shits in the woods, when I start talking, something epic will happen.”
First Corner: “With no sand this weekend, it was my job to cause chaos and make people crash. Job done.”
Jason Anderson: “A couple of riders after the race told me I should have slowed down a smidge and let Barcia catch me, that way he’d be on probation for the rest of the season too, and every rider out there would have appreciated that.”
AMA Official: “We deliberately don’t make consistent decisions regarding penalties for aggressive riding. Makes it more fun when people don’t have a clue what we’ll do next.”
Chase Sexton: “I’m a little bit frustrated.”
TV Producer: “Not sure if anyone noticed, but we did these interviews with the riders today, which we tried to subtly add into the broadcast. Also, once Jett finishes, the race is completely over.”
Mitch Payton: “On a frustration scale with regards to getting riders out on the track, on a scale of 1-10, I’m probably about a Chase Sexton.”
Adam Cianciarulo: “I literally couldn’t have pulled over off the track far enough. But I fully respect he had to take me out seeing as I’ve been such a podium threat this year.”
Cameron McAdoo: “It’s been agreed upon that this year, Jett wins, RJ comes second and I come third. Things got a bit hectic in the triple crown, but other than that, we’ve been sticking to the rules. Then Pierce comes along and tries to mess with the formula, so I had to just show him who’s boss.”
Truck Drivers: “It was awesome driving from Tampa to Oakland this week, and now we head back to Dallas before carrying on to Daytona. I love the people who came up with this schedule, it’s just so considerate to our families.”
