The broadcast team for 2021 Monster Energy Supercross has come under fire in recent weeks, hence why a change that has been made for Salt Lake City 1 should pique interest. Daniel Blair will take the seat that’s been shared by Todd Harris and Leigh Diffey this year, and sit alongside Ricky Carmichael as the play-by-play commentator at SLC 1.
Seeing as Blair will be handling his on-track duties, which are an integral part of the race broadcast, Jeremy Albrecht (former team manager of the JGR team) will jump in as a pit reporter and make his on-screen debut. Another interesting change for the broadcast of the penultimate round. One would think that these changes are being trialled for 2022 Monster Energy Supercross; it would not be a surprise to see this become the norm. Official communication from Feld Entertainment is below.
