2017 Season Recap:

Bloss entered his sophomore season riding for the Rocky Mountain ATV/MC-KTM/WPS team and looked to be a solid contender but a dislocated shoulder at the first round in Anaheim ended his 2017 championship run. “The Boss” has the potential to turn some heads in 2018 and will be one to watch.
