BLAKE BAGGETT’S USADA LETTER FROM COLORADO: CLEAN AS A WHISTLE

BLAKEBAGGETTLetterKudos to Blake for being open and forthcoming. According to sanctioning body MX Sports, every rider tested at Thunder Valley, 12 in all, passed their USADA tests — surprisingly, even James Stewart, who theoretically should have failed based on the prescription medicine he said he was taking when he failed his Supercross WADA test.

REAL TRUE-TO-LIFE RUMORS, BUT NOT NECESSARILY TRUE

MysteryMan
Who da man? And, where’s he going?

The silly season is silly, but it is human nature to try to be the first to know something, even if its not true. What is true is that it doesn’t matter who signs with who in the summer of 2014—all that really matters is who lines up on what at the start of the 2015 season.

FSDtomac
Eli Tomac:
Eli has done himself a world of good over the last four races and since this is the last year of the Geico contract—he is suddenly the hot commodity. He didn’t like his CRF450 during the Supercross season, does he like it enough now to stay in red? Eli could write his own ticket at this point in his career. Perhaps green would offer the most green.

FSDDAVi
Davi Millsaps:
Davi has been taking flak for hiding out during the 2014 National season, but, in what can be considered to be the biggest gamble of 2015, he is at the top of the list at Team Kawasaki.

FSDanderson
Husqvarna:
With Husky getting ready for the 2014 season there may be four new job openings in the sport. It looks like Jason Anderson (shown above), Zach Osborne and Martin Davalos have filled three of them. We’d be looking at Weston Peick if we were Husqvarna.

FSDbarcia
Justin Barcia:
Although he nursing an injury right now, he will be at Joe Gibbs Yamaha in 2015.

FSDroczen
Ken Roczen:
Kenny hasn’t said a word about it, but he’s leaving KTM to go to RCH Suzuki (and perhaps taking the number one plate with him).

fsdvillopoto
Ryan Villopoto:
No one knows what he is going to do, and based on past evidence perhaps Ryan doesn’t either. He could fulfill the option year on his Team Kawasaki contract for 2015, he could race Supercross-only in 2015, he could go to Europe for Kawasaki (since Gautier Paulin will leave Kawasaki for the Honda GP team next year) or RV could quit. Given that he sold his Florida training compound and fired trainer Aldon Baker all signs point to…oh, who knows what they point to?

FSDwilson
Dean Wilson:
  Deano will join Ryan Dungey at Team KTM (in the 450 class). Word on the street is that Dean’s Pro Circuit teammate Justin Hill will join him there (theoretically to ride the 250 class with Marvin Musquin—who KTM has not signed for 2015 yet).

FSDseely
Cole Seely:
Cole will join Trey Canard at Team Honda — leaving no room at the inn for anyone else. Also there are strong rumors that Seely’s current Troy Lee Design’s team will switch to KTMs for 2015.

FSDtonus1
Arnaud Tonus:
Tonus will join the Pro Circuit Kawasaki team in 2015. The GP rider will have to live through the 250 East Supercross series (which is all that any American team expects of a European transplant in his first year) so that he will be healthy enough to be a player in the 250 Nationals.

FSDwebb
Martin & Webb:
They already re-upped at Star Yamaha for 2015.

FSDreed
Chad Reed:
We would expect Chad to give it one last try in Supercross before calling it quits. We don’t expect him to race the Nationals ever again.

IVAVretire7
Ivan Tedesco:
Ivan announced his retirement on Friday — effective immediately.

Fontanesi
Chiara Fontanesi:
Chiara Fontansesi repeated as the WMX Women’s World Champion by five points over Aussie Meghan Rutledge. Livia Lancelot,  Steffi Laier and Nancy van De Ven rounded out the top five
