Shane McElrath on his 450 SX Debut

After sitting out the first part of the season due to injury, SmarTop/Bullfrog Spas/Motoconcepts’ Shane McElrath made his 450 debut at the 7th round of the Monster Energy Supercross series in Orlando. With a very impressive heat race, claiming a second behind Eli Tomac, Shane went on to finish his first 450 main in 17th.

We caught up with him at Tyla Rattray’s new training facility to discuss his transition and first race aboard the new machine.

Hailing all the way from Somerset, Kentucky, Blake became engrained in the vurb crew because he came and crushed 14 White Claws, in one sitting, with Wes at Millcreek. After that, we realized his photos were really, really good.... so we decided to make him a video guy? Genius on our part. Blake is currently heading up our Maroon Program. He's Red Program in video, but black belt in photo, so we're pretty sure you get maroon when you mix the two. But we probably should've asked Jeeves to make sure.
The best thing about Blake is he accepts payment in beard oil.
