In the pits: Below are various pictures taken in our pit area at the US Open. The BBR trailer shared a pit area with the Maxxis Tires Funmover; supercross fans could walk in and inspect BBR's custom work, aftermarket parts and aluminum-framed bikes.
The BBR pit area attracted visitors all weekend.
On the track: The track built for the US Open in the MGM Grand's Garden Arena was tamed down for the small wheeled BBR minibikes. Fun was had by all, however, as magazine editors from Motocross Action, Cycle News, Dirt Bike, MX Racer, Dirt Rider, Cycle World and MX West settled sibling rivalries aboard BBR 150s.
