There certainly wasn’t a lack of action at round 13 in St. Louis. Whether it was Jordon Smith’s exciting win the 250SX East class, or the Chad Reed/ Ryan Dungey incident, the fans definitely got there money’s worth in the gateway city. If we’ve learned one thing during the 2017 Monster Energy Supercross Series, it’s that the only thing we can expect is the expected. With just four rounds remaining, Dungey has just a four point lead over the fast closing Eli Tomac. With rain and cool temperatures expected in Seattle this weekend, anything is possible. Until then, here is what went down in St. Louis.

stl baggett
Blake Baggett had another good race in St Louis and finished up in 7th.
stl barcia
Although Justin Barcia doesn’t have many friends on the race track, he definitely has style and the fans love it.
stl bogle
We love this shot of Justin Bogle navigating a deep rut over the St Louis step-up.
stl doctor
In between races the people that help make Supercross work are all smiles.
stl dungey
With just four rounds remaining and four points between he and Tomac, will Dungey be able to hold on to the points lead and take home the 2017 SX Championship.
stl grant
In St Louis, Josh Grant had his best race of the series with a strong 5th place finish.
stl kjsc
This young KJSC rider was all smiles on press day.
stl musquin
Marvin Musquin floats over the difficult step-up with the greatest of ease.
stl podium
The 450SX podiums have looked the same for the past few weeks.
stl reed head
We’re sure the entire SX world would love to know what Chad Reed was thinking in St Louis.
stl reed
With so much negative press after round 13, it will be interesting to see how Reed responds in the final four races.
stl savatgy
With a few weeks off for the 250SX East riders, Joey Savatgy is the holder of the points lead and the red plate that goes with it.
stl seely
Cole Seely had another solid ride in St Louis, but finished just outside the top five.
stl start
There isn’t much room in the first turn of a SX start.
stl teammates
Ryan Dungey and his teammate Marvin Musquin survey the race track just prior to practice.
stl tomac
Eli Tomac just can’t do anything wrong right now in SX as he just keeps on winning.
