We are closing in on the final rounds of the Monster Energy AMA Supercross and this past weekend we had an early start to the day for a change. This round was just outside of Boston, MA and what a gnarly track got served up for this race! The weather cooperated this time around and we saw some pretty incredible racing at Gilette Stadium. Special props go out to JGR Suzuki rider Kyle Peters who wrecked his ACL/MCL the week previous. He soldiered through what must have been incredible pain to take a spot on the 250 podium taking 3rd place. Huge respect and congratulations to Kyle and team for a well earned finish. Lets take a look at some of the action from round 15.
