At the 2017 Budds Creek Motocross National, Troy Lee Designs/Red Bull/GoPro/KTM’s Shane McElrath put in a great ride, ultimately finishing on the podium for the first time this outdoor season. However, the celebration was cut short in an ironic twist of fate, as McElrath’s podium champagne bottle burst while in his hands. The TLD rider was left with several large cuts on both hands, which obviously resulted in an unwanted early vacation. That’s all in the past now, though, as he’s back in the saddle and ready to defend his 2016 Red Bull Straight Rhythm title this weekend in Pomona, CA.
