Race Control: Phoenix

Monster Energy Supercross has vacated Southern California, jumped on Interstate 10 and settled down in Arizona for round four of seventeen. The University of Phoenix Stadium, based in Glendale, will play host to a round of the series for the second time on Saturday. Just a few hours lie between us and the start of the action, so use that time wisely and digest all of the information that sits in this regular Race Control feature.

Useful Information

– The way that one views the Monster Energy Supercross series has changed completely, now that Ken Roczen is sat on the sidelines with a horrific arm injury. Seeing as so much has changed, and will continue to do so, you’ll undoubtedly want to follow the action all day and night on Saturday 28th January. We can help with that, as we are at the University of Phoenix Stadium and poised to provide extensive coverage.

– In order to catch all of that content, it is vital that you follow our social media channels and log onto this site regularly. You can follow us on Twitter (@motocrossvice), Instagram (@mxvice) and SnapChat (mxvice). Presumably you are already one of our followers on Facebook? If not, like the page named MXVice.com.

– The weather really is not an issue this weekend, thankfully, as the University of Phoenix Stadium has a retractable roof. No precipitation is forecast for race day anyway, so the regular schedule will be in play for the first time this year. That means that everyone will have an extra practice session!

– The extremely popular Race Day Live show will be on for three hours on Saturday, starting at 12.50pm (local time). You’ll be able to watch practice and qualifying live from that point on, no matter where you are in the world, as long as you have this link. The action will not stop there, as international fans have a chance to watch the night show live thanks to the pay-per-view service. Those in America and Canada will have to catch the main events live on Fox Sports 1 (at 21:00 EST).

– All of the information that we have handed to you here will be useless if you ignore this bullet point. Instead of being eight hours behind, like we have been the last three weeks, we are just seven hours behind the United Kingdom here in Arizona. That means that, if you are in the UK, the qualifying stream will start at 19:50. Take note!
