FXR Racing Presents Behind the Lens From Anaheim 2


As the 2017 Monster Energy Supercross Series made it’s way to Angel Stadium in Anaheim, CA for the final time this year, fans quickly learned that it’s best to expect the expected. Whether it was the drama between Jason Anderson and Vince Friese, or Ken Roczen’s massive crash in the main event, the series definitely changed on Saturday night. Sadly, these unfortunate incidents slightly over shadowed the great rides by Justin Hill and Ryan Dungey as they took their first wins of the season. With Ken Roczen now out for a few months, the series moves to Phoenix and the first indoor race of 2017. As she’s been since the 2017 series kicked off a few weeks ago, Freestyle Photocross’s Krystyn Slack was on hand at round three and sent us these incredible photos.

a2 250 podium

The big smile on Justin Hill’s face pretty much tells the story of where he finished on Saturday night.

a2 250 start

The first turn in Supercross doesn’t provide the riders with a lot of room.

a2 450 podium

When you’re as talented as Miss Supercross, you don’t need a jacket.

a2 450 start

For the first time in 2017, Cooper Webb was able to get a great jump off the gate in the main event.

a2 dungey

However, 22 laps later it was Ryan Dungey taking the win.

a2 forkner1

Rookie 250 rider Austin Forkner is going about his season in a very mature way. Each weekend he’s staying out of trouble and his results are improving. Without a doubt, a win isn’t too far off in his future.

a2 friese

Vince Friese has the talent and speed to be a regular top 15 guy in 450 class. It’s too bad though that his past actions have put such a large target on his back.

a2 hill finish

Justin Hill shows us the thrill of victory at Anaheim 2.

a2 hill1

After having the speed to win at the opening two rounds of the series, Justin Hill finally put it all together at Angel Stadium.

a2 mclerath

Even though he didn’t win for the first time this season, Shane McElrath still left Anaheim with the 250SX West points lead.

a2 millsaps

At Anaheim 2, Davi Millsaps didn’t get off to a great start in the main event. But he charged hard and managed to get back up to 9th on the technical track.

a2 musquin

After finishing third at the first two rounds, Marvin Musquin made a late pass on Cole Seely to finish behind his teammate in second.

a2 opening ceremonies

At round three, the Monster Energy girls went from throwing t-shirts to throwing fire.

a2 reed

Chad Reed is without a doubt the most popular rider in the paddock.

a2 reed1

For the third week in a row Reed had to battle his way forward after a bad start. In the coming weeks, he has to find a way to get off the gate better in the main event if he wants a top 5 finish.

a2 roczen friese

Ken Roczen was trying to find a way past Seely for second in the main event before disaster struck. Sadly, the German star is now out for the rest of the series, and perhaps the remainder of 2017.

a2 roczen1

Regardless of what level of rider you are, things can change very quickly in this sport.

a2 roczen2

It’s very sad to see a season that started off with so much promise, come to such a sudden end for Ken Roczen. Hopefully Team 94 can heal up fast and be back sooner than later.

a2 ryan dungey

Will this once again be Dungey’s year in Supercross?

a2 seely

Cole Seely had his best race thus far in 2017, finishing up with a solid third overall in Anaheim.

a2 stewart

It was great to see at least one of the Stewarts back in SX.

a2 whoops

After yet another week of rain in California, the track crew did an incredible job getting the Anaheim 2 track ready to race. Now it’s onto Phoenix and the first indoor event of 2017.
