Bryce Vallee Ride Day
Pro racer Bryce Vallee suffered a list of injures after a vicious crash during the second round of the Muscle Milk TWMX Spring Cup, and the industry came together this past Saturday to raise money for the number “90′s” staggering hospital bills. The ride day was held at Riverside, CA’s Milestone MX Park and brought out both casual rider and professional alike. Our friend Steve Emter was on hand to document the thoughtful event.
The setup for the Bryce Vallee ride day started early before the crowds started to arrive at Milestone MX for the benefit.
The Brett Downey Foundation had a booth set up selling food as well as raffle tickets to help raise money.
