>Say hallelujah, brother! The motocross aficionados have put their blessings on the 2016
Supercross season, which has finally
been put in the vaults, and now the
torch gets passed to “blood of my
blood”—outdoor motocross. The 48th
annual Hangtown motocross opener
has hosted 20 opening rounds, the first
coming in 1974 at the old Placerville
venue, which was named during the
California gold rush.

(passing #1 both motos) and then walked the dog.
