The rain came pouring down. That was the scene at this year's round at Spring Creek MX Park in Millville, MN where they saw large volumes of rain come down and turn the track into one mucky mess. They ended up cancelling part of practice and cutting back time on another practice session. Not a fun day out there for many riders who had bikes blowing up and visibility issues but then we had Henry Miller who persevered through the conditions to claim his career best finish in moto one taking 5th on his home track! Not the most ideal weather to launch a sneak peek of our 2020 gear but Henry Miller, Kyle Cunningham and Jerry Robin got the chance to show it off this weekend. Let's take a look at the mudder in Millville.

And the water continued to flow.
