You already know while you drive all night time you are typically just a little scatterbrained the subsequent day or in order you attempt to get caught up in your sleep? Effectively, I wakened this morning considering I had till 6pm to do issues round right here. I even deliberate on going for a mountain bike journey with my previous pal Jeff Hines the MX announcer over at Graham Swamp. We’ve been attempting to time a journey for a bunch of years now and in the present day was lastly the day.

It seems in the present day will not be Thursday…in any respect. It’s the truth is Friday and meaning it’s the busiest day of my keep down right here in Florida. Oops.

I’ve to get my podcast interview completed with the Week #9 honouree, Honda Canada GDR Fox Racing’s Dylan Wright, it’s Media Day over a the Speedway, then the Meet and Greet, then the Arenacross on the Ocean Middle. No, it’s not a break day by a protracted shot!

Luckily, I woke as much as some rain which suggests the MTB was doubtless going to be cancelled anyway, however I haven’t heard the ultimate phrase from Jeff.

As you’re studying this now, I doubtless did the podcast interview with Dylan behind the van within the parking zone on the Speedway earlier than driving over to the Ocean Middle. This media stuff isn’t as straightforward because it appears to be like, children! Haha

[Edit: We were able to get the interview done as he was driving to the track this morning.]

Anyway, I’m certain you’d like me to whine and moan some extra, however I gained’t.

I noticed Dylan on the Toronto Bike Present only a couple weeks in the past, however I didn’t need to interview him there as a result of I knew his week was coming rapidly. He’s been busy making appearances in TO and once more in Montreal earlier than heading again right down to Florida to proceed on the point of defend his Canadian 450 MX title…once more.

He didn’t lose a moto all of 2022, so when his closest rival, Purple Bull KTM Canada’s #15 Jess Pettis, managed to beat him at Spherical 1 in Edmonton final summer time, it was a fairly large deal. Dylan managed to win the general, so meaning he’s gone 2 full years undefeated heading into 2024.

Right here’s a take a look at his 2023 outcomes:

Ones throughout the board…once more.

Due to Dylan’s dominance the previous few years, groups are scrambling to discover a rider who can probably compete at his degree. Sadly for different groups, meaning they would wish to drag somebody away from what is probably going an already very profitable contract or possibility wherever they’re at the moment using. So as to proceed to get the help from their present producers and staff sponsors, they’re within the troublesome place to try to discover somebody to suit this position. It’s not straightforward. Each staff in Canada with riders is aware of they’re almost definitely combating for second place proper now.

It was cool to have the ability to attend the inaugural Cash Moto Showdown at Pax Trax in Bunnell, Florida, on Wednesday. I drove all night time to be at this one and I’m paying for it in the present day.

Daytona Supercross Media Day

So, I made it in time to catch everybody hitting the observe to journey, however I used to be late getting there for the interview portion. Folks don’t plan to fail…

Once you’re watching opening ceremonies Saturday, look ahead to the cheer outcomes to appear to be this:

third place:

#94 Ken Roczen

2nd place:

#7 Aaron Plessinger

1st place:

#3 Eli Tomac

Don’t ask me why, however I all the time take note of the foolish issues like crowd response. Eli is all the time the group favorite. Aaron is normally a really shut 2nd and Ken Roczen takes third. Once they introduce Aaron, you suppose he’s for certain going to be the winner however then Eli comes out they usually blow the roof off the dump! Test it out Saturday.

#21 Jason Anderson.

There’s a wall leap proper earlier than the mechanics space that’s proceeded by a 180 right-hand nook adopted by little, huge, little obstacles. Doubling the primary two after which leaping up onto the highest of the wall leap is unquestionably STEWABLE! A number of of us stood there watching and it appeared like #38 Haiden Deegan was tempted by it within the 250 class after which #21 Jason Anderson appeared like he was measuring it up, as was #2 Cooper Webb.

I used to be speaking to our previous pal Josh Hill and he didn’t disagree after I stated I assumed he would do it. He talked about that perhaps they wouldn’t do it in the present day as a result of then the observe crew would go forward and alter it in order that they couldn’t on Saturday.

I stood there recording Deegan and Anderson time and again in case they went for it, however I by no means noticed anybody strive it. Look ahead to it tomorrow. I’ll submit some video up on our Instagram web page.
