ThrowBack: 2011 Monster Energy Supercross Press Day Video By GoPro Featuring Weston Peick, Austin Stroupe, And Jarred Browne

With me hopping on an airplane tomorrow night to head to Oakland for round #5 of the 2020 Monster Energy Supercross Series to do my usual thing for GoPro, it got me thinking about the past times I’ve been there on two wheels myself.

In 2011 I was riding for the Rock River Yamaha Team for the 1st of 2 years and got the call to ride press day a couple days before the race.

This was my 2nd year rocking a GoPro whenever they asked me to. I was blown away the first time I rode my personal Sx track in 2010 wearing one and saw how the footage looked. So anytime they asked if I wanted to race with one I was fully down. It’s paid off!

With GoPro HQ being not too far from Oakland some of the boys were on hand to shoot and edit a really cool video with Myself opening it up, followed by Weston Peick, & Austin Stroupe.

As far as the race goes, I was 16th fastest in the 450 class after session 1 but did a classic head plant in the larger than normal whoops (which were my strong point with being 6 foot 3 inches) and my head was ringing too much to line up that night.

But hey! At least there’s a cool video from press day.

It still amazes me the life a dirt bike has provided for me.
