Halfway through the 2022 Monster Energy AMA Supercross Championship, things have been intense to say the least. Don’t know if it’s something in the water, or a general unrest in the paddock, but we’ve seen some incidents happen between riders that have been both violent and intense. I have some theories on this I’ll share later on, but for now, just know that the AMA has had their hands full figuring out what kind of discipline to hand out to some of these guys.
