This is—without a doubt—the best mullet in supercross history. Don’t @ me.
It’s President’s Day, so it makes sense to bring up this hotly debated topic: which riders would you put on your Mount Rushmore?
This is a satirical look at some of the bigger (and smaller) talking points from the weekend’s action based on what viewers from around the world are commenting on. Please don’t take it too seriously.
Sometimes Steve gets a glimmer of free time and goes down the industry rabbit hole known as the Cycle News archives. He emerges like a rabid basset eating cargo shorts. His latest masterpiece? An in-depth story on Eddie Hicks, known within some industry circles as the fastest minicycle racer ever, yet someone who never really made it as a pro.

You know your wife's friend up the street that loves the drama and lives for the negative? She actually finds a positive feeling in finding out something is going sideways for others? Or, further, invents unfortunate scenarios of people screwing her over "for no reason"? Yeah, well, those people can't be helped. To solve their problems would be to give them the worst problem ever, which is not having any sort of problems to get attention. I've developed an easy test to determine if someone is really having issues or if they're just creating bad juju to get attention. Use that "for no reason" quote above. If someone claims the deck is so stacked against them that their boss/spouse/significant other/kid's teacher/neighbor just has it out for them "for no reason" then you know they're making it up. No one is born that unlucky. This person either created that luck, or, more likely, went and pretended to have that luck, for attention. Some people just get bored and feed off this kind of stress. Joey Savatgy is not one of those people. He's just keeping his head down and trying to win. The stress finds him because he's trying to do the hardest thing of all--win championships. Once again he finds himself in a high-stress scenario.

Let’s enjoy James Stewart doing cool shit on a dirt bike—or at least five cool things.
Again, I'm happy that so many people are watching Monster Energy Supercross and sharing opinions and ideas. But we can't accept that all opinions are just opinions are are therefore correct. This week's ridiculous theory is that Jason Anderson started the first turn crash in San Diego PURPOSELY to put Eli Tomac and Ken Roczen down. Let's just make a rule right now: no rider purposely starts a first turn crash. Never.
We've had some great racing and a little drama early in this Monster Energy Supercross season and most people dig it. Some opinions, though... you know how social media works. You know how ridiculous the internet can be. Here's the worst theory we heard last week: Jason Anderson purposely high-fived Ken Roczen to hurt his arm???
Before the season, we end up with a treasure trove of rider headshots from every team photo shoot. They will be used a lot throughout the season. One photo this year haunts our photo server, our desktops, and our dreams.
