The Holeshot - Published 2/16/23
With the holiday season in the rear view mirror and a fresh 12-pack of months ahead, January typically brings a breath of fresh air. For most, this time is full of optimism and new beginnings, but I can’t say that’s true for us here at Noon Goons. For us, January is typically hell as we hustle to put the finishing touches on the new collection we show mid-month at Paris Fashion Week. With stress levels high during this critical time of the year there is one thing I look forward to that helps clear my head for at least one night: Supercross.
Supercross is the worlds best motorcycle racing series that kicks off the first weekend of every January right here in Anaheim, California just 30 minutes from Noon Goons Downtown, Los Angeles headquarters. It’s quite impressive to enter Angel stadium, a place familiar for baseball games, be transformed to a full on dirtbike track, with every square inch covered with dirt making whoops, jumps, 180-degree turns, and fast rhythm sections.
Here, take a look at some behind the scenes action going on in the pits of each factory team to see some of what it takes to make it to the Main Event of racing, Enjoy!
We are looking to connect and create community. If you are in the Southern California area and are interested in learning to ride or want to come meet up for a local track day, feel free to contact us firstname.lastname@example.org.
