Anderson – no Monster Cup
Jason Anderson has pulled out of the Monster Cup and also explained why he didn’t line up for the Red Bull Straight Rhythm.
After a month in Holland riding the sand, Anderson says he didn’t feel comfortable enough on the two-stroke after just two days on the bike and feels he now needs a rest instead of ramping up his supercross prep this week for Monster Cup.
“Right now I need to let my body rest and get ready for the long season we have coming up for supercross and motocross,” explained the 2019 team USA MXoN member.

Just updating everyone about the Red Bull Straight Rhythm and the upcoming Monster Cup. Everyone knows that after the last Outdoor National Zach and I went to Europe for a month to train for the MXON and our Country. My plan was to come back and do the 2Stroke Red Bull Straight Rhythm first. Truth is after only two days on the bike after riding in deep sand for a month I just didn’t feel comfortable and choose to not race. I apologize to all my fans who showed up to see me ride but switching to a 2stroke after riding a 4stroke is harder than what you think it might be. Because I’ve been going wide open and not having much time to prepare, not to mention I haven’t had any off season preparing for all these events the Team and I feel it is in my best interest that I not race the Monster Cup. I wish I could have been able to race and apologize to all my fans who were hoping to see me race at these events. Right now I need to let my body rest and get ready for the long season we have coming up for SX and MX. Want to thank my team and my mechanic C-Low for all the support and hard work they put in all the time -Jason
