We shift things over to the east for our 250 riders this week and a flood of new talent hit the track last Saturday. We have gone from the extreme rain in San Diego at round 5, straight to the frozen tundra of Minneapolis, Minnesota this past weekend. We saw a departure from our 450 rider Ronnie Stewart who was still healing from his caustic burns from the previous round and we will welcome him back this coming weekend at Arlington, TX. Plenty of fresh FXR kits were easy to pick out at Minneapolis and here are a few shots from round 6.

Part of the CTR Motorsports team, Josh Osby made his debut in Minneapolis.
An old familiar face opted to line up in the 250 East class this year. Welcome back Kyle Cunningham.
Another familiar face also took to the 250 East class this season. Henry Miller was home town favourite and scored a bit of TV time on press day.
