Round 2 or 3 of Monster Energy AMA Supercross was held this weekend in San Diego. And while there was 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 third round of the 2023 Monster Energy Supercross Championship, but we all know they were thinking it.
Jason Anderson: “The good thing about taking out Barcia’s front wheel, is that I know he’ll just accept it as a racing incident, move on, and won’t even think about possible retaliation.”
Eli Tomac: “I’m not sure, and maybe Leigh Diffey can clarify for me, but I think I might be getting close to the number of SX race wins that Ricky Carmichael had.”
Random 250 rider: “These race starts are super chilled and relaxed, I just cruise through the first turn with zero effort.”
Ken Roczen: “Yeah, so I stalled. Should probably work on this whole kickstarting deal.”
Cooper Webb: “Knowing that all the media personnel were behind me, and hadn’t written off my A1 result as a fluke – because I did the same at 2022 A1 – gave me a massive boost. I probably would have dropped way back without their confidence in me.”
SX Graphics guy: “So am I re-doing all of these round four clips into round three, or we leaving it as round three, now?”
Muc-Off/ClubMX Yamaha Manager: “I wasn’t at all excited after the first lap. I was zen-like calm. And don’t bother watching the team VLOG this week, nothing interesting will be included.”
Aaron Plessinger: “Track needed more watering.”
Dylan Ferrandis: “If everyone else could just stop working on their starts, that would be great.”
Levi Kitchen: “I was too busy wondering HTF the Bengals are gonna win the Super Bowl, and then boom…. I crashed in the first corner.”
