A cool and very unique idea popped into our heads a month ago: what if we could get as many top National riders on the same track on the same day? What if that track was Glen Helen? And what if we could rent a helicopter and shoot video footage documenting the happenings? A hundred phone calls and thousands of dollars we made it happen.
Ryan Dungey, Ken Roczen, Justin Barcia, Justin Bogle, Josh Grant, Blake Baggett, Broc Tickle, Nick Wey, Kyle Cunningham, Kyle Peters, Ryan Sipes, Mike Alessi, Tyla Rattray, Jake Weimer, Kyle Chisholm, Ivan Tedesco, Jason Anderson, Blake Wharton, Wil Hahn, Davi Millsaps, Tarah Geiger, Ryan Hughes, Hunter Hewitt, Scott Champion, Vince Friese, Kevin Rookstool, AJ Catanzaro, Tevin Tapia and more spun laps all day long in preparation for this weekend’s opening round of the Lucas Oil Nationals.
