GEICO Honda's Christian Craig was originally slated to contest the Western Regional 250 Supercross Championship, but a testing crash left him with a badly broken bone in his right thumb and revised plans to race on the East. Cleared to ride only a week before the Minneapolis series kickoff, Craig showed up at US Bank Stadium hoping to salvage some points, even though he was in a lot of pain. This telling podcast documents Craig's day in Minneapolis, and also offers tons of insight as to what goes into being a top racer in our sport. We spoke with his team owner Jeff Majkrzak, team R&D manager Christian Kibby, his mechanic Ricki Rock, KYB suspension tech John Yamada, and more! The day's end result was not what anyone was hoping for, but we still learned a lot shadowing our long-time friend throughout the day.
