2023 Anaheim One Supercross Recap on the Pro Taper Kickstart Podcast



Presented by Pro Taper

It’s raining again in Southern California, so Alex Ray used a dry Monday to get in one last day of practice at the Yamaha Supercross track before the skies opened up again. That said, the Pro Taper Kickstart Podcast is a Tuesday edition today! Hear all of the things we saw and learned at Anaheim One…which was the best race of the year!

    My crew here in Indiana was so pumped watching ARay in that lcq… we all watch all the swapmoto stuff so the Fam is familiar with everyone. I said “damn I thought ARay was gonna go for it and might blast the guy for the final spot and take them both out , and my 15 yr old daughter said well at least he didn’t get sketchy and crash lol”. She didn’t realize the coincidence until I showed her my ARay hoodie lol.

  2. Love the podcast- keen to see if ARay takes up the Hannah Ray challenge to get his $500 haha – love the sketchiness boys and keep up the great work and can’t wait to see ARay make a bunch of mains this year

    When the video freezes like on this episode you should just have a photo of Sam on the screen instead of the 4 of you.

    A1 was epic good puss shit Aray keep pushing,
    But hell my wife and I were in a wild section made it hard to watch the 250 main people throwing beer cans doing shoeys in some random girls boot and fights happening but other than that A1 was epic

    Hopefully that dude going to the Bahamas don’t whip out RDX 2.2 all red, sorry A Ray.
    Thanks for all the great content. I look forward to running crane and listening to you guys every week

    Love the chill environment. Glad to see ARay keep it on two wheels and live to fight another day. Good luck in Oakland

    For the upcoming jet ski race at Oakland SX, I’d like to advise Team A-Ray/SML to seek a sponsorship from Body Glove to ensure Alex is fitted properly with a wetsuit and life vest just in case things get sketchy in the dirt lake.

    Good luck this weekend ARay! Not sure if you should be taking your practice bike or an ark… you shoulda taken a 2022 yz450f because those things are BOATS. Great job on the pod guys and it was nice that Anton didn’t cut out the whole time being in studio lol!

    Man I was looking forward to have A rays jersey covered in mud but it’s canceled now.

    You should bring Louise to the Press Conference. Louise from Swap Moto Live this one is for Eli, who has worse farts, Eli or Nastasia?

  13. Jason Sirotek January 13, 2023

    Hey so since Oakland got scrubbed y’all should dump a muddy Starbucks coffee all over the ARay jersey live on show! I think that’d be PUSS AF!
