His insatiable thirst for life is only surpassed by his monthly fuel bill. Whether rocketing on land, flying through the air, or jumping the seas, our Road Test Editor does it all and has the scars to prove it.

In anticipation of this weekend’s Monster Energy Supercross taking place inside San Diego’s Qualcomm Stadium a press conference was held with a few of the series’ top riders. The San Manuel Yamaha team of James Stewart and Kyle Regal showed up to chat as did the KTM squad of Andrew Short and Ken Roczen. We snapped off a few images of them in action today and make sure to tune into this weekend’s race as forecasters are calling for heavy rain which will make things interesting when racing gets underway Saturday night.
