Henry Miller in Print

Speaking of Henry Miller, I couldn’t help notice when I came back from the post office and cracked open my fresh copy of Racer X Illustrated that there was a feature interview on Henry. Go grab the latest issue and have a read on Miller’s breakout season this past summer. It’s a good one.

FXR in Italy

All industry types headed to Milan for the big annual EICMA Motorshow to show off their wares and rub shoulders with other industry folk. The North American FXR crew joined forces with the European FXR crew and had the booth set up looking pretty slick. They were showing off our new 2018 line for everyone to see and you can bet there will be some new exciting FXR things evolve for next year from the connections made at the show. Here’s a few angles of the booth provided by Brand Manager, Andy White. Well done guys!

Shelby Turner at EnduroCross

Well I figured I’d save the best for last. Shelby Turner has long been a competitor in the EnduroCross series in the US and this year she did something she or no other woman has done before. She podium in the guys Amateur A main. Another one for the history books for Shelby as she continues to kill it in the off-road/enduro scene. With one round remaining, Shelby is currently leading the Women’s class. Congrats to you Shelby on a well deserved spot on the box. Here are a few photos from last weekend’s round in Boise, ID taken by MJSmotophotos.
