Supercross Preview

Who’s Lining up in 2017 | January 5, 2017

 

by Dawn McClintock

Happy New Year all. The start of a new year always marks the beginning of that next crazy season of supercross. We have all been starved of our two-wheel addiction over the winter and with only one day remaining, we will have our fix and that gate will finally drop tomorrow at Anaheim 1. All the big factory deals have long been signed and there’s always a mystery or two right up to the week of supercross on who will be riding, what they are riding and who is sitting on the bench with injury. It will be interesting to see some of the big name players who have been left to sort out their own program this season and it will take some getting used to, seeing some of the top pro guys who have switched over to a different bike.

Here is a quick lap at the new A1.

 

This year will mark FXR’s best showing for supercross…ever! To date we have had a handful of privateers giving their all, round-in/round-out, but this year our list is long and jammed with talent. For all the supercross fans heading to any venues, take some time to go say hi to some of our athletes down in the pit before race time. As the list continues to grow, let’s take a look at the FXR line up for supercross so far.
