Round 2 Houston Supercross | Photo Report

January 16, 2018

by Dawn McClintock

We are just starting the season with Round 2 of the Monster Energy Supercross series and we’ve already got a number of top riders out with injury. Sometimes the cards are just stacked against a rider and the points chase and those fantasy SX league pics go right out the window for some. For other guys like Malcolm Stewart it becomes an “opportunity knocks” kind of situation. For the FXR athletes, this weekend provided an opportunity for three guys to get into the main. Let’s take a look at some of the photos from Houston, TX.
