Last week we kicked off the Fox Fifty by asking you to vote on who you thought were the five fastest riders of all time from Ohio. You can check out the results right here. For this week, we head out west to Arizona, the home of the Phoenix Supercross, Arizona Cycle Park, and a whole big rig full of fast Blose family members. You can vote for your five fastest, and we will tally them up and post them here next week. (And if we missed anyone you would like us to mention, please email us at:
