Jason Weigandt chats with Adam Bailey and Ryan Sanderson of AME Management—producers of the Monster Energy AUS-X Open Supercross—to get a candid tale of all the obstacles, costs, headaches, and rewards of running a big-time race. It's not easy and not cheap, but when the fans show up and the lights come on, it's all worth it. From fears of trucks falling through the Marvel Stadium floor, to the price tag to bring American riders to Australia, to the feelings of seeing their dream finally become reality, Adam and Sando break it all down here.

Inside the February issue of Racer X magazine: Red Bull KTM’s Cooper Webb is the 2019 Racer X Rider of the Year. The legendary Paris Supercross may have lacked some star power, but that may not have been a bad thing. Racer X’s Trent Lopez hit the gym, pounded out laps, and entered the brutal Ironman GNCC, just to see if he could do it. (He could.) Steve Matthes and Kris Keefer entered the Dubya USA World Vet Motocross Championships at Glen Helen, then sat down for a chat about their weekend. All these stories and much more.
