DUSTY KLATT RETIRES: TWO-TIME CANADIAN 450 CHAMPION

“I would just like to give out a big thanks to everyone in my life who helped me along this awesome journey and dream…a path in life that I took to the fullest. I’d like to thank Andy white and the KTM Canada Team for helping me in my final years of racing, my long relationship with Red Bull, Oakley, Fox, Joe at SSS, Andrew and PRC, Jason Mitchell for all of my years at Blackfoot, HAF Skate and Tattoo, Devinci, Macneil BMX, my personal trainers, Mia and Todd for their help off the bike and their positive outlook on everything, and last but not least, my family and all of my true supporters and fans who have been behind me over all the years. It’s been a blast! If I missed anyone, you all know who you are, and you’ve all helped make a difference.

“So where do I go from here you may ask? I’m starting a new chapter in my life as I work towards getting my welding apprenticeship. I like using my hands, as I do in my art, and I’ll be putting in the hard work this sport has always required. I have an amazing little family that I need to take care of and I want to be able to give them every opportunity in life they dream about. Thank you Canadian motocross: I built a career I could only have dreamt about and it was a great time. See you at the races.”

RECESSION NEWS! DAVID KNIGHT SAYS THAT HE CAN’T AFFORD TO GO TO THE ISDT

David Knight.

“It’s been a long and very difficult decision for me to withdraw from this years ISDE which is the centenary of the event. Financially I can just not afford to do it. Running my own team this year with the help of my sponsors has been tough going especially doing 3 races in South America and the X-Games in the USA. It’s very tough for everyone at the moment but especially for small teams so after a long hard think and looking at it financially, I can not afford to go. It’s the only choice I have but it’s not easy to take, as the ISDE is very close to my heart and being the only British rider in 99 years to win the event outright, makes it even harder.

“I’d like to thank the ACU for the opportunity and team manager Dusty for understanding my decision. Good luck to both Great Britain trophy and junior teams and hopefully I’ll be in a better situation next year to compete.”

                                         
THE MOST IMPORTANT LISTS IN MOTOCROSS: VILLOPOTO & TOMAC NOTCH 2013 TO THEIR CREDIT

Ryan Villopoto earned his second 450 AMA National Championship in 2013 and added to his three straight 250 crowns (2006-2008). He has won 5 outdoor crowns and 3 AMA 450 Supercross titles (2011-2013). Villopoto also won the 2007 250 East Supercross titles, but the 250 East/West are regional championships and do not count as an AMA National Championship.

As for Eli Tomac he notched his first-ever AMA National Championship (although he did win the 250 West Supercross title in 2012). Tomac is free to race the 250 Nationals as long as he wants, but has to move out of the 250 East/West series. Since he plans to race 450 Supercross in 2014, he will also race the 450 outdoor Nationals.

Here are the lists of the men that Tomac and Villopoto share a kinship with.

MEMORIES OF THE WAY WE WERE: DO YOU REMEMBER THIS TEAM?

It is common to look back at race teams from the past with misty eyes and warm thoughts, but Team Tamm left a bad taste in the mouth of many people in the motocross community. It had good riders, but was poorly managed.
