But for German rider Ken Roczen and the Team Honda HRC crew, the season started long ago. Take a peek at a couple of the countless hours of training and testing the team is bringing into round one.
The 2021 AMA Supercross season kicks off this weekend in Houston, Texas.
Over 17 weeks from January through to May and a million-dollar All-Star Race to wrap it up, supercross in the United States attracts some of the largest and most impressive crowds inside the most recognisable and prestigious stadiums in North America to race in front of nearly one million live fans and broadcast to millions more worldwide.
Founded in the 1970s, it’s a simple concept …. the track takes all the exciting obstacles of outdoor riding – jumps, turns, and bumps – amplifies them, and puts them in easy view of spectators.
Sit back and enjoy this video as preparation continues for Roczen
