Anaheim 2 SX | Photo Report

January 24, 2017

 

Welcome back to Anaheim. Round 3 of the Monster Energy AMA Supercross returned for another weekend to Anaheim, CA where we had crazy amounts of rain that forced track workers to cover the surface with tarps. Fortunately the rains let up for race day and it was business as usual. Kudos to the crew maintaining track for making it happen. Our guys had a rough day and I’m sure they are all ready to take on Phoenix and leave this round behind them. The one thing we never like to see is guys getting hurt and we want to extend our well wishes to Ken Roczen for a speedy recovery from his nasty crash that will leave him sidelined for the rest of the season. All the best to you Kenny.

Let’s take a look at the FXR athletes that were there competing at A2.

Don’t step too far off the track or you are into some serious bog conditions. Track workers managed to keep the rain off the track but trackside could be “no man’s land”. | Browndog Wilson photo

Always nice to see this after a race instead of punches and drama. Ray and Albertson congratulate each other after the race. | Krystyn Slack photo
