The second Supercross round in Salt Lake City, Utah (12th round on the SX schedule) is on its way. The first round in Salt Lake went fairly smoothly for it being the first of its kind. The biggest hiccup was out of FELD’s hands as the riots took over the live SUpercross coverage on TV. Supercross fans were not happy at all. Luckily they reran the race on TV no too long after.   We made our way through the pits to see what was going on. The bikes were all cleaned up with new plastics and graphics from last Sunday’s race just three days prior. Here is what we found in the pits here at Rice Eccles Stadium for round 12 of the AMA Monster Energy Supercross series.
