(January 29, 2020) While waiting for his injury to heal, NHL player Colton Parayko of the St. Louis Blues, got a behind-the-scenes tour of Supercross at The Dome at America's Center in St. Louis, MO. During last years Stanley Cup Final, the St. Louis Blues defeated the Boston Bruins and won the Stanley Cup, which Colton was a part of.
Colton grew up on a farm and used to ride dirt bikes out in the field with his brother and eventually built some jumps which he really enjoyed and was amazed at how big they are on the Supercross track. He broke his wrist riding when he was young and said, "That was when he had to choose between dirt bikes or hockey, and I chose hockey". Seemed like it worked out pretty well for him.
Supercross racer Bubba Pauli brought Colton down on the track and spoke to him about what he looks for when he goes on track walk, how fast they go and how amazing the opening ceremonies are.
