Just like that the supercross season has finished up and some crazy stuff shook down in the final round at Las Vegas, and when I say crazy, has anyone else ever witnessed a race like that, ever? The hunt for the win gave way for both 250 and 450 classes to have drama right down to the final checkers. What a great showing our FXR athletes gave this supercross season and kudos to those privateers for slugging it out week in, week out. Congratulations to all of them for their hard fought season! Here is a snapshot from the final Vegas round with some of our riders. Let’s bring on the great outdoors!
What can you say about Alex Ray. He’s been in this for the long haul and he topped his finishes in Vegas with a 16th. Way to go Alex!
Cade Clason also slugged it out through the entire series. He didn’t have quite the results he was hoping for in Vegas.
