MX Vice Magazine: Issue 2

Featured

It feels like only yesterday we were celebrating the first issue of the MX Vice magazine, but the second issue is already here! After being read more than fifteen-thousand times, the first issue is unofficially the UK’s most read motocross magazine. The second issue has been extended, and with a new editor onboard in the guise of Lewis Phillips, we expect this issue to break last month’s great stats!

Have a read, and let us know what you think in the comments box below. So, grab yourself a cuppa, sit down and enjoy -you deserve it.

Huge amount of respect goes to the MX Vice team and Jon Bolton for turning this around so quickly!

Mark Hucklebridge Auction!

Featured

Following the devastating news that Mark Hucklebridge’s cancer has returned, Carly Rathmell and MX Vice have got together to help raise money for the new Cancer Research Unit at the Royal United Hospital in Bath. The RUH has treated Mark twice before; he will undergo chemotherapy in the next month, after he has attempted the Bath Half Marathon.

Mark Hucklebridge has given so much to motocross, the sport that we all adore. Everyone we speak to either knows of Mark, has been been helped by him or has one funny story about him! Now is the time to see what the motocross community can do, and help Emma and Mark raise money for the Cancer Research Unit.

MX Vice will hold a continuous auction throughout 2014 to raise money for this cause. We have a Ryan Villopoto shirt donated by Rad Ad Hartwell from Thor/Madison, with a frame donated by the Burfield Digital Agency. RaceFX, Ducksmart, CCM Racing, Carly Rathmell/MRS Ltd have all said they will donate, also, so far.

If you wish to donate money please use the link above, if you would like to provide product for us to auction please contact Carly Rathmell here: carly.rathmell@btinternet.com or Elliot and Lewis at MX Vice.

The State Farm Stadium in Glendale, Arizona, is known for being one of the best venues on the Monster Energy Supercross calendar. The huge floor really allows Dirt Wurx to open things up and produce an interesting track. Is the layout this weekend as good as previous years? Ken Roczen’s GoPro footage from practice has been released, so take a look. This is definitely the longest track that the riders have hit thus far.

Justin Cooper has been remarkably consistent in the 250SX West class thus far – he has not dropped outside of the top two in a main event yet. Cooper suffered his first hiccup in the first timed qualifying session in Glendale this morning, however, as he crashed very hard going into the sand section and was slow to get up. The crash can be viewed in the social-media clip below.

Fortunately, Cooper did eventually return to his YZ250F and hit the track again. It took him a while to blow the cobwebs off, understandably, but he served notice that he is just fine by setting his fastest time of the session on the final lap. That put him second in the group behind his teammate, Dylan Ferrandis. Qualifying results will be confirmed following the second session in an hour.

The State Fair Stadium in Glendale, Arizona, is still relatively new to the Monster Energy Supercross calendar, yet it already has a reputation for producing great racing and tracks. It seems as though this weekend will be no different – a technical track lies ahead with some unique obstacles. There is a big double after the finish, a little double into the sand section and more. The whoops seem pretty big too and should not collapse like they have done in recent weeks. The animated video below will give everyone a better idea of what to expect.

2020 Monster Energy Supercross hits Glendale, Arizona, for the fourth round of seventeen this weekend! The State Fair Stadium is going to host the first Triple Crown event of the season, which means that it’s going to be a chaotic night of racing. The track looks like it will encourage that as well! MX Vice caught up with Cooper Webb, Ken Roczen, Blake Baggett and Justin Bogle ahead of the fourth round to get their thoughts on the season so far and the Triple Crown format. This video includes a first look at those riders spinning laps around the football stadium too.

Watching It: Glendale

Subscribe to MX Vice on YouTube.

Glendale is the next stop on the 2020 Monster Energy Supercross tour and also the venue for the first Triple Crown event of the year! The exciting format has produced some riveting action in the past and there is no reason to think that this weekend is going to be any different. Seriously, who knows what is going to happen? Details on how to watch can be found below.

International

The fourth round of 2020 Monster Energy Supercross will be held in Glendale, Arizona, so the time difference is slightly kinder to international viewers. Seven hours is the gap to those viewers in the United Kingdom, which means the evening programme is going to kick off at 02:00 on Sunday morning in the UK and 03:00 in mainland Europe. The ‘Race Day Live’ programme that covers timed qualifying will begin at 19:00 in the UK and 20:00 in mainland Europe. The best news is that the first main event is going to take off at 02:12 in the United Kingdom, because of the Triple Crown format.

How can one watch all of that action? Unfortunately, payment is required on HERE but the service is flawless. For the price one can get all of timed qualifying, the races, archive footage, bonus videos and more. It is a pretty sweet deal and worth it for the hardcore fans. Watching it live is not a requirement either – wake up the next morning and the footage will be ready to watch. It is all lined up perfectly for Monster Energy Supercross fans! If there are any questions about any of the above, contact us on social media (motocrossvice on Twitter).

United States

There is bad news for American viewers, as the NBC Sports Network will not carry live coverage for the first time this year and therefore those who need to watch it on television will get it at 14:00 EST/11:00 PST on Sunday. It’s worth noting that the whole programme will also be available live for American viewers on the NBC Sports Gold app (HERE) at a price. The fact that a lot of you would have used that in the past means that it needs no explanation. It’s effectively the same as the ‘Supercross Video Pass’ that international viewers can access, just for those actually inside of the USA. Simple! The ‘Race Day Live’ programme is only available on NBC Sports Gold for those in the USA and it is in the aforementioned package.

Time is flying by! The fourth round of 2020 Monster Energy Supercross will take place inside of State Farm Stadium in Arizona this weekend and it is the first Triple Crown event of the season. How exciting! Now, this format is not the greatest for all of the who follow the circus as there are now just twenty-two spots in the night show as opposed to forty. There are a couple of guys who have not made the trip, bearing that in mind, so there are less entries than normal in both 450SX and 250SX West. This is just a four-hour drive from Anaheim, so is it a concern that some have steered clear of the event?
