Detroit SX | Photo Report

March 29, 2017

 

Another round in the books and was it just me or was that 250 main a real nail biter? The Monster Energy AMA Supercross touched down in Detroit, MI this past weekend and it didn’t disappoint. The points chase is coming down to the wire and if we see the next few rounds like we did this past weekend it’s going to be anyone’s game. This weekend also had another large showing of FXR athletes and after the introduction of our limited edition Mission gear, the contest Steve Mathes is running over at PulpMX called The “Lit-Kit” Award went to none other than our own Alex Ray who sported the new gear at the Indianapolis SX. We are super proud of the exposure the riders have been giving it and the overwhelming response we have been getting from people who want it for themselves. Let’s take a look at a few more lit-kits from round 12.
