Snocross and the sunny slopes of the Grand Geneva Ski Hill were finally reunited over the weekend after a two year break from this much loved venue. When we think of Lake Geneva, Wisconsin, we think of sunny weather, mild temps, and the big three day finale. This year, we still had three days of action-packed racing, but Geneva is actually the second to last stop on the tour this time. While we did get a balmy 60 degree, sunny day on Sunday, we had to tough it through the rain first.

As expected, the track at Geneva was as challenging and extravagant as ever, with three huge uphills/downhills, tight corners, and ever-changing whoop sections. Warmer temperatures made for wet and heavy roost and challenging visibility at times. Nonetheless, FXR athletes continued to prove their strength, taking home 52 total medals over the weekend.


Gvanni D’Antonio #990 started off the weekend strong, going 2-1 in his heat races and taking 2nd in Friday’s Stock 200 final.
