Jason Anderson – I feel really good
After a steady but slightly unspectacular year last season that left 2018 supercross champion, Jason Anderson, in a respectable fourth place in the supercross standings but with no races wins, the easy going American says he is feeling better than he did in 2020 after a winter training program without esteemed trainer, Aldon Baker.
“I feel really good,” commented Anderson in the press conference. “I had help from my guy that’s helping me out with Darren Stockden. At the practice track I have been riding on my own as far as my motos but we are still at the track with Barcia and the Gas Gas guy. We don’t really do motos together but we are always on the track at the same time and make sure we are riding at the same track and can maybe spy at each other on the track. I feel really good. This is my first off-season without Aldon so we will see where we are but I’m enjoying myself and having fun and that usually makes my riding and everything better.”
On shutting up the naysayers and getting back to his 2018 championship level Anderson said: “I won it 2018 and i haven’t won since so I guess they have some facts to back their argument but I’m hoping to get to that level and be winning and stuff like that but it’s tough because you have these younger guys coming up and the level just keeps getting gnarlier and gnarlier every year. No-one is making it easier on me or the other guys and the competition is deep. Even compared to last year coming into the first round, I feel better, but at the same time there are a lot of guys that are firing on all cylinders so we will see how it goes, but I would definitely like to get back on that level and hopefully be back winning.”
And Anderson does indeed look ready for 2021 if this video is anything to by!
