Round 1 Anaheim Supercross | Photo Report

January 10, 2018

by Dawn McClintock

The gate officially did drop this past Saturday in Anaheim and boy has it been a long wait for this day to arrive. The FXR stable was pretty full and our riders were ready to take on A1. The most anticipated race of the year also meant a new twist for FXR. This was the first time we have launched both moto and snow line at live events simultaneously. A1 Supercross and at Shakopee SnoCross were the venues for our athletes to go out and showcase our brand new Limited Edition Helium line up. This is a preview of our future style for the FXR 2019 program. The response was huge and the consensus was that this gear stood out. Well that’s what we are going for and you can order your own on the site while quantities last. Check it out here.

Moving on to the race action at A1, here are some images from round one.
