Troy Lee Designs / Lucas Oil / Honda is pleased to announce that Malcolm Stewart has signed with the team for the 2014 season.
There was a sense of anticipation in the air for the riders that had not the chance to try Swift Current’s new track lay out for the second CMRC race held in Swift Current for 2013. The club did a great job prepping the track with ample grooming and watering during the preceding days. There were many comments regarding how well the track flowed and how the jumps had improved take offs and landings over the previous track. One of the awesome features Swift Current has with their track is you can watch your favorite rider for almost the entire lap with exception of one little corner off to left. Which is just perfect. Because the crowd was always watching with great expectation to see who got past who when they disappeared behind the hill on their left. It added just the right amount of excitement to make the racing that much better for the spectators. There is only one thing the track needs. That is a barbed wire fence and turret with a Gatling gun between the pit area and spectator parking so Randy Maffenbeier can finally keep the competitors from pitting in the spectator parking! One day Randy. One day.
Strang's motocross park near Port Elgin, New Brunswick played host to the 2nd last round of the CMRC Atlantic Fall Series. A forecast of rain for the weekend hurt the turnout as the number of riders was down by about a 100. The rains stayed away until the last couple of motos on the day and those 200 plus racers that did show up put on a great show. The track was in amazing shape with riders blasting the sandy berms. Here are a few photos of how the day unfolded. Be sure to check out the final race of the Atlantic CMRC Fall Series at Riverglade MX on September 14th.
As I stood up on top of one of the table tops early in the morning with the rumblings of the 8oclock riders meeting in the distance. I wondered why the CMRC discontinued Regina’s track as one of the stops on the CMRC Pro National circuit. As I panned the track I saw many elevation changes, bowl turns, step ups, step downs, table tops, doubles, triples and uphill turns. Regina’s track is pretty awesome.
The final round of the 2013 AMA Pro Motocross Championships took place this past weekend at the Red Bull Lake Elsinore National in sunny Southern California.
SPOKANE, WA (August 24, 2013) –This past weekend in Lake Elsinore, California, fans and race teams entered the pits for the last time this year as the 2013 Lucas Oil Pro Motocross Championship came to an end. Smartop by MotoConcepts rider Mike Alessi (#800/450) was fired up and ready to race after taking a weekend off from Salt Lake due to his injury at Unadilla. Through extensive therapy and rehabilitation, Alessi was able to ride at Press day on Thursday and said he felt really good about his bike set up and the condition his shoulder was in. Eager to finish the season off with a bang, Alessi and the MotoConcepts crew were motivated as ever to go racing and have some fun.
The Red Bull KTM Factory Team wrapped up a successful US Pro MX championships season at Lake Elsinore in California on Saturday with all three factory riders on the overall end-of-season podium. Ryan Dungey finished overall second in the 450-class and Ken Roczen and Marvin Musquin, the team’s two European riders finishing 2-3 in the 250 class competition.
Monster Energy rider Ryan Villopoto closed out a stellar 2013 season in true champion style, earning his eighth overall victory in the triple-digit heat at Round 12 of the Lucas Oil Pro Motocross Championship in Lake Elsinore, Calif. After clinching the 450 Class championship last week in Utah, he didn’t need the win, but in typical Villopoto-fashion took control of both motos early and easily grabbed his seventh moto sweep of the season.
Many roadracing fans will know the name Brett McCormick, but moto fans may not. McCormick is one of the fastest roadracers to come out of Canada and the Saskatchewan native even had the chance to race in Europe for the Effenbert Liberty Ducati team in the 2012 Superbike World Championship season. Oh, and did I mention that he broke his neck that same year and came back to race? Well, he has been out ripping on his local MX track lately, as it turns out, he is pretty damn fast on the moto track too.
