Supercross Kickoff! 5

Press Day at the season-opener of the Monster Energy Supercross series at Anaheim? It's all about checking out new equipment, watching the riders nervously fidget at the press conference, and okay, checking out which girls Monster brought out for the event. Hi, Mercedes.

Yep, some business gets handled, like going over last year's attendance figures, this year's TV package, and Feld Motorsports giving the Asterisk Mobile Medical crew a check for $100,000. Nice!

Oh yeah, Ryan Villopoto also scored his second straight Championship ring for winning the big-bore class. That's him you're listening to here.

    The shot of Canard whipping it with Hill whipping it the opposite way in the background is great!
