Minneapolis SX | Photo Report

February 22, 2017

Here we are already at the first eastern round of the Monster Energy AMA Supercross. Minneapolis, Minnesota marks the first stop of the eastern leg of the series and a fresh new pack of riders for the 250 class. Last week we ran a lineup of all the FXR riders slotted to race the eastern rounds and we kept both BrownDog Wilson and Krystyn Slack on their toes trying to keep track of all of our guys. In total we ended up having 11 riders qualify for the evening program. Great job guys! It’s a long photo report, so go make yourself a coffee and kick back. Here’s a look at a few of the riders that rode in¬†Minneapolis.
