IS JAMES IS ON THE CHOPPING BLOCK OR HOME FREE?

We are still waiting to hear the full consequences from James Stewart’s taking of a banned substance on WADA’s long anti-drug list. If it was an honest mistake and James does have a serious case of attention deficit hyperactivity disorder (ADHD), then we believe the FIM will understand. In this case, it would be considered an honest mistake. Although it can be labeled as a simple paperwork error—ignorance of the law is no defense — and there will be some kind of sanction. The “prescribed” medication can, and has been used, as a performance enhancer in other sports — and those athletes suffered the consequences. Stewart’s defense rest on his doctor’s prescription and his own malfeasance in not filing for the required waiver. If, however, the FIM concludes that he has no long-term history of taking this drug for medical reasons, the dosage is higher than considered typical or the missing paperwork was an effort to conceal facts, the FIM hammer will come down.

RED BULL STRAIGHT RHYTHM WILL RETURN OCTOBER 4TH

Screen shot 2014-06-23 at 10.50.22 AM

Press Release:  After a highly successful proof-of-concept late last year, Red Bull Straight Rhythm will return on October 4th as a full competition at Auto Club Raceway at Fairplex. An evolution of the sport of Supercross, the event will feature an “unwound” track, where there are no turns, just a 1/2 mile-long straight rhythm section. Tickets will be available for purchase starting in July at www.redbull.com/straightrhythm.

The innovative format will pit a field of 32 riders against each other in a head-to-head best-of-three bracket format. By isolating just the whoops, triples, doubles, table tops and step on/offs, riders must focus exclusively on reading the terrain directly in front of them and correctly judging their speed for precise distance and control. Full rider list to follow, but some of the world’s top supercross/motocross riders are expected to compete. The 2013 proof-of-concept featured riders James Stewart, Ryan Dungey, Marvin Musquin, Malcolm Stewart, Cole Seely, Justin Bogle and Jesse Nelson riding the unique course in a non-competitive format.

“It’s all about rhythm, so if you mess up once, you’ve got a half-mile to get it back, but you almost have to be perfect,” said James Stewart. “One mistake and it’s a wrap.” Red Bull Straight Rhythm will air on NBC in 2014 as part of the Red Bull Signature Series, the most progressive action sports property in the world. For more information, please visit www.redbullsignatureseries.com. Full rider list and ticket info available soon.

Screenshot_2014-06-18-22-21-12 Former National racer Denny Stephenson got quite heated about WADA’s drug enforcing. Here is a quote from Denny,”I”m going to make this real clear. Motocrossers are the baddest athletes on the planet. I love football. How many people die playing football a year? A professional motocrosser races 28 weekends at minimum a year. 28 weekends on the road. No home games. The sport has been scientifically proven to be the second physically demanding to soccer.  Do what you can to survive and be your best. Your career is short. The thrill is second to none. Adderall? Don’t make me laugh. My rant is done. And oh yea. I like Batman. Haha.” #superheroes

MXA FITNESS TIP OF THE WEEK

saturated-fats-haha-good-one-howard_o_1006865

Is all Fat bad?  The misconception about fats is that all fats have been classified as unhealthy and some of them are really unhealthy. Anything fried, processed, or off the dollar menu gives “fat” its bad reputation. But there are healthy fats. Healthy fats, such as monounsaturated and polyunsaturated, are one of the three classes of nutrients that your body needs on a daily basis. When choosing foods with “fat” in them, it is important to make healthy fat choices in your daily diet such as: olive oil, salmon, avocados, nuts, seeds and peanut butter.
