Riders had to pass through a small door and a tunnel to enter staging at Rice-Eccles Stadium.
The stadium is located on campus at the University of Utah, and is one of the most scenic areas the tour visits.
The Utah soil was somewhat rocky and required throttle control to avoid spinning on the marbles. While it was not overly technical or creative, riders complained about the transitions between and into the jumps being different than what they are used to.
Some years ago, Ricky Carmichael and Feld presented this helmet to the stadium staff. It is encased below a collage of photographs of Supercross events that have taken place at the venue over the years. Supercross made its first appearance to SLC in 2001 but it was dropped from the schedule for a handful of seasons before returning just years ago.
We want nothing to do with this monster.
Troy Lee Designs/Lucas Oil/ Honda busted out these small space heaters to warm the cases on their race bikes just before first practice, as it makes the bikes easier to start.
With the heat and humidity of the summer just weeks away, trainer Charles Dao has altered his athlete's programs by working in Icon Sports Alliance's hot yoga room.
