Atlanta SX | Photo Report

February 28, 2017

The Georgia Dome hosted it’s last ever supercross event before it shuts it’s doors completely and we will see a new facility, the Mercedes-Benz Stadium replacing the old dome for next season in Atlanta. Many bittersweet feelings about it’s closing after so many key victories happened under that roof. This weekend there was a few more firsts to add to the moto history book and FXR saw another record turn out for our riders making the evening program. Here are some shots from Round 8 of the Monster Energy AMA Supercross from Atlanta, GA.
