Plenty of action here at Washougal. This stop on the circuit meant it was time for the much anticipated 125 All Star race. With a long list of riders that included some familiar names, we knew this was going to be a big hit. Mike Brown said that it was probably one of the most fun races he’s competed in and despite not making it on the top of the box, he gave guys a run for their money. Our list of FXR riders for the main races however was pretty short given a larger portion of our pro guys show up at mainly eastern rounds. Here is a look at some of the race day images from round nine.
