The Scene

Fifth Gear Tapped | 2017 Adelanto Grand Prix

For the second year in a row, the Fasthouse crew made the trek up to the high desert for the District 37 Adelanto Grand Prix hosted by SoCal MC. After dominating the pro race last year, Blayne Thompson came into the event ready to defend his King of Adelanto title. Unfortunately, after taking over the lead and opening up a sizeable gap over the field, Saturday's pro race was red flagged due to an injured rider. With the sun quickly dropping, the officials made the decision to restart the race first thing Sunday morning. Even with the restart, though, Blayne managed to hold off challenges from the competition to once again take home the Adelanto crown and lion's share of the huge pro purse. Behind him, Willy Simons Jr. rode his ass off aboard his trusty YZ250 two-stroke to take home the win in the Pro 2 Class. With a ton of rad shots to share, we decided to put together a Fasthouse Story photo feature. CLICK HERE to check it out.
