Last year’s mud-fest was forecasted to happen again this year, but thankfully the weather gods held the moisture away and we finally had ourselves a dry Supercross in the PNW.
The Frenchmen won both the 250SX and the 450SX with, #34 Dylan Ferrandis and #25 Marvin Musquin respectively. Musquin’s win came with controversy as he was jumping on a red cross flag after #22 Chad Reed ended up breaking 8 ribs and collapsing a lung in a nasty crash. Musquin ended up being penalized 7 points.
The 250SX LCQ took out some riders, including Gage Schehr, who went down hard, but managed to walk to the medical cart on his own. However, up close on camera, he did not look so good! The race ended up being red-flagged and on the rerack, local Ravensdale, Washington native, Carson Brown, went down hard and flipped off his bike. Here is to hoping everyone heals quickly!

Onward to Houston!
