RedBud MX National | Photo Report

July 4, 2017

A very happy Independence Day to our FXR family south of the border and patriotism runs about as deep as it gets at the RedBud National. The one race of the year that is a must see for fans and for people watchers alike. The spectacle of the entire event is really something to experience in person if you haven’t already. You might want to crack a cold one and have a seat because this one is a long one. FXR had a record 21 athletes line up to try and qualify at RedBud so we have quite a few photos to slide through. Take a look at some of the action from the weekend.
