2011 AMA Supercross San Diego Press Day

Friday, February 18, 2011
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.
