     DAVI MAKES IT OFFICIAL: NO NATS

Davi Millsaps.

Amid internet rumors, Davi Millsaps made it official. Las Vegas will be his last race of the 2013 season. “I will not be racing the outdoors. My knee is pretty beat up and I figure it’s best to get it fixed now and miss the outdoors, rather than maybe have knee replacement surgery later on and be out a whole year.”

Mike Brown topped the podium at the opening round of the AMA EnduroCross Series in the Orleans Arena, Las Vegas. Reigning AMA EnduroCross Champion Taddy Blazusiak finished second overall.The AMA EnduroCross Series added a new element to its night show line-up for the 2013 season where the twelve riders that qualify for the main event ride in hot laps with the fastest person getting first gate pick. Brown again took the honor of holding the top spot after turning a 40.1. Blazusiak earned the second choice spot with a time of 40.2. The two riders choose the two inside gates for the start of the main event. Just as predicted, they rounded the first corner in that order with Brown taking the holeshot and Blazusiak in second. They locked into those positions throughout the 12-lap main event. Colton Haaker rounded off the podium.

Mike Brown said, “It feels so great to get my first win tonight. I’ve been training hard and working toward this goal for a few years now and everything finally feels right. I am extremely grateful to my team that has been behind me this season and built me a great bike. I hope to carry my momentum into the next round and work toward a championship.”

     “HI GUYS, WELCOME TO AGUEDA, PORTUGAL, OMG, LOL, AS IF, WHATEVER”

     HOW THEY DO THINGS IN AUSTRALIA…AND WHY THEY SHOULD STOP

Billy Mackenzie.       Photo: CDR Yamaha

At last weekend’s Australian National Championship round, Billy Mackenzie’s 2-2 took the overall victory in front of Todd Waters’ 5-1. At least, you would have thought so and we are pretty sure than the fans thought that Mackenzie’s solid performance was good enough also. But, it wasn’t. Since Waters was the fastest qualifier, the Aussie organization gave him 5 extra points on the day’s score (and with those points he took the overall for the day). In truth, we don’t care how the Aussies run their races, they have traditionally experimented with different formats, but this seems wrong on so ma ny levels.

Billy Mackenzie won the race on points, moto finishes and in the eyes of the world. Billy should have stood on the top step of the podium. Yes, Waters did win the points for Super Pole…and those points should be added to his season total?not to the day’s moto scores? The fans of any sport deserve to be able to watch the race and determine the winner on face value?not on a math equation. Waters deserves the 5 extra points, but he didn’t win at Murray Bridge.

     CURRENT MOTOCROSS NEWS… WHAT’S NEW? SAME-OLD SAME-OLD

Blake Baggett.

Coming back: With three weeks until the AMA Nationals start, it is hoped that Jimmy Albertson, Michael Byrne, Josh Grant (see below), Les Smith, James Stewart, Gannon Audette, Blake Baggett, Darryn Durham, Justin Bogle, Zach Bell, Jessy Nelson, Alex Martin, Kyle Peters, Jeremy Martin, Nico Izzi and Justin Hill will all be ready.


Kyle Chisholm.

Need more time: Not ready for the National opener on May 18 will be Matt Goerke, Davi Millsaps, Kyle Chisholm and Matt Lemoine.


Valentin Teillet.

Valentin Teillet: Even though he finished on the 250 podium in Bulgaria, Valentin Teillet has decided to pull out of the 250 World Championships to have his shoulder operated on. His Bud Kawasaki team will replace him with relative unknown Jason Clermont.


Pascal Rauchenecker.

Pascal Rauchenecker: Standing Construct KTM 250 GP rider Pascal Rauchenecker will miss the next couple GPs to have his shoulder worked on. The KTM rider was the highest-ranked Austrian on the GP circuit, but won’t return to action until June.


Julien Lieber.

Julien Lieber:
Team Rockstar Suzuki’s young hope Julien Lieber tore his ACL at the Bulgarian GP and has already had surgery. Lieber will miss the rest of the 250 World Championships. Max Anstie will be the sole Rockstar Suzuki rider this weekend in Portugal, but Suzuki will probably find a replacement for Lieber by the next round.


Steven Frossard.

Steven Frossard: Steven Frossard will miss the month of May to allow the fractured metatarsal in his left foot to fully heal. This means the Frenchman will sit out Grand Prix events in Portugal and Brazil, but anticipates being ready for his home event at Ernee, France, on June 9th.


Xavier Boog.

Grand Prix turnout: After the poor rider turnout at the last Grand Prix (where they had trouble finding 20 riders for the 450 class), Youthstream fired off a press release this week saying that they had 31 riders for the 450 class and 29 in the 250 class for the Portugese Grand Prix. But, let’s wait and see! A quick perusal of the results revealed that they only had 22 riders in the 450 class and 25 in the 250 class. Why would they send out a press release that is all hokum? They knew that Julien Lieber, Steven Frossard, Pascal Rauchenecker and Xavier Boog were injured and that several of the local Portuguese riders would never make the 108% time cut, but they counted them anyway.

     TROY LEE DESIGN GP AIR GEAR TEASER: THEY CALL IT P-51, BUT WE ARE PRETTY SURE THEY MEANT P-40

     USED IT ABUSED IT, TESTED IT: GET C1 WIRELESS HOUR METER

The GET meter is easy to use because it doesn’t use spark plug impulses to measure rpm, but instead uses engine vibration…or more accurately the wave frequency of the engine’s combustion stroke. Thus, it doesn’t need any wires. Instead it attaches with two-sided tape to the frame.

VERDICT: We liked that the Get C1 kept total time and had a resettable partial time feature (sort of like the trip meter on your car), but we didn’t love it for two reasons: (1) It doesn’t display engine time when the bike isn’t vibrating. (2) GET supplies their hour meter with a non-replaceable three-year battery?after three years, you buy a new one?hour meter, not battery. $69.95?www.procircuit.com or (751) 738-8050.

    
ASK THE MXPERTS: BACKFIRE BLOW BACK

Dear MXA,
    Does removing the backfire screen improve performance? I read on the internet that removing the backfire screen is a complete waste of time and that there is zero horsepower gain. I have a KX450F.

Removing the backfire screen improves throttle response and every factory team does it. If you have ever seen a Kawasaki or Honda backfire screen you’ll understand why. They have double layers of wire mesh restricting air flow. However, throttle response cannot be measured on a dyno, so there is no horsepower gain.

     WHO HAS THE MOST HOLESHOTS? BONUS MONEY?

Last week we ran this photo of Tom White from California Speedway on his KTM RC8. We said it was the first time in 40 years that Tom had ridden on a road race track.


This week we found a photo of the last time Tom was on a road race bike. This is Tom at Laguna Seca in 1973 on a Norton.
