2022 450 AMA Supercross pre-season press conference reaction

The 2022 450 AMA supercross pre-season press conference is in the books. Here are some quick takeaways from being at the presser:

Cooper Webb seems very confident with his new bike and extra motivated to show he can win without Aldon Baker.

A suited up Ken Roczen said he has been back to Europe working on his health and fitness with people he worked with back in GP’s, and felt great, until a sickness in December has got in the way of some prep.

Eli Tomac is enjoying riding with more people and at different tracks with the Star Racing crew feeling he maybe too isolated previously.

Adam Cianciarulo only rode again on Monday after his injury and doesn’t seem sure how it will go on Saturday but says all he can do is give his best.

Dylan Ferrandis says he is enjoying riding at Ricky Carmichael’s farm (that Star Racing have purchased) after growing up watching RC from afar in France and has ridden with Tomac a handful of times.

Chase Sexton looks very focused and confident believing he won’t be chasing bike set-up now in his second year on the 450.

Jason Anderson said it took him a while to get adjusted to the aluminium frame after so long on the steel frame and Husky but he is enjoying his new environment.

Justin Brayton thinks 2022 will be his last year as a full-time professional.
