San Fran is Gonna Be a Mudder! | Inside SML Ep.2



Presented by O’Neal 

The SML team is in San Francisco for round two of the Monster Energy Supercross Series, held inside Oracle Park, home of the MLS’s Giants. Sadly, the weather has not been – and is not scheduled to be – kind to Saturday’s event as rainfall earlier in the week has already left the track a soggy mess. Heavy rain is predicted to fall at a couple of different times on race day, with a significant chance of precipitation throughout the daylight hours. The normal afternoon free practice sessions have been canceled, and the schedule pushed back two hours to 1:00 p.m. 

While the thought of a mud race strikes fear into the hearts of some but excitement into others, one thing is for sure: the better prepared for the wet conditions teams and riders are, the better their chances of success are. We worked the indoor pit area outside Oracle Stadium today to find out just how everyone is preparing for a sloppy day in the Bay Area. “It’s all in your attitude,” Ken Roczen told us. “I can’t wait! It’s the same for all of us, so you might as well have a good time.”
