RAMSEY TAKES PONTIAC, PASTRANA THE CROWN-APRIL 7

Nathan Ramsey secured his second win of the 125 East Coast Supercross Series at Pontiac, Michigan, by beating his archrival Travis Pastrana. Ramsey had a wild night with near crashes that had him running beside his bike and hopping back on wild west style. Travis Pastrana rode like a champion. He took no risks, finished comfortably behind Nathan Ramsey and won his first 125 East Coast Supercross crown. Of course this was all after he clipped a hay bail in the whoops in practice and gave all the guys at …

LANGSTON BLOWS IT BIG–MARCH 24,

Imagine the embarassment of winning your first 125 Supercross race,only to fall down while showing off to the crowd. South African Grant Langston had the win in the in bag. It would have been the 125 World Champions first-ever 125 West win. But…and it’s a big but, he did a one-hander over a small double and cased the landing. By the time he got back up he had been passed by Travis Preston, Greg Schnell and Rodrig Thain. Team Suzuki’s Danny Smith missed the race with a broken hand, and that relieved al…

TRAVIS DOES THE MATH–MARCH 5

Nathan Ramsey, who is the current 125 East points leader, got the holeshot on his Yamaha YZ250F and led for two laps before Travis Pastrana went sailing by. Pastrana, who fell at the start of last weeks race in Atlanta, needed to win in order to keep his hopes of the 125 East title alive. Ramsey, who needed to finish second to keep the points margin between Travis and himself as large as possible, gave up second place in the New Orleans race when he made a mistake. Ramseys mistake allowed Mike Brown to …

NEW ORLEANS TO RICKY–MARCH 5

Three things happened at New Orleans: (1) Ricky Carmichael won his fifth race in a row (sixth win this season). (2) Jeremy McGrath failed to make the podium for the first time in the 2001 season (finishing fourth). (3) New Orleans had the smallest crowd of the year (only 36,565 spectators). McGrath holeshot the 250 main, but just like last week was passed by Ricky Carmichael (although Jeremy led longer than the three feet he led last week). Jeremy ran second until the midway point when he cross-rutted a…

AMA SUPERCROSS SERIES #6-INDY: 250’S-FEB 11

Carmichael has now won three in a row and pulled out a six point lead in the points standing over Jeremy McGrath! Don’t count Jeremy out yet. While Carmichael got the holeshot and checked out, McGrath got stuck behind Timmy Ferry for a few laps on the tight single line track. McGrath still finished second and has so far been super consistent, never finishing off the podium. We’re glad to see Ezra Lusk back in action after his terrible chain induced crash in the middle of the whoops at last week’s Anahei…

AMA SUPERCROSS SERIES #6: INDY-125’S-FEB 11

It’s a shame that Travis Pastrana couldn’t stay in the 250 class and battle with the big boys. After his relatively easy victory at the opening round of the 125 East Coast this past weekend in Indianapolis, it is obvious that he has a little advantage on the rest of his 125 comrades. Travis’ victory wasn’t start to finish as Yamaha of Troy’s Nathan Ramsey was credited with the holeshot, although both Team Pro Circuit’s Mike Brown and Travis Pastrana went by Ramsey on the first lap. In the end Ramsey pas…

EA SPORTS SUPERCROSS ROUND #5–250’S

Edison International Field Anaheim, California Ricky Carmichael did what McGrath was unable to do at Round #4, that is come from behind to win. McGrath started the main event with the lead while Carmichael started in tenth. For the first ten laps Ezra Lusk and Kevin Windham hounded McGrath while Carmichael worked his way through the pack. Then things started to happen. Carmichael got past Windham (who rode his best supercross of 2001 and actually hung with McGrath and Carmichael the whole race) and then…

EA SPORTS SUPERCROSS ROUND #5–125’S

Edison International Field Anaheim, California All hail Ernesto Fonseca. He may have struggled last year, but he is at the top of the class in 2001. Ernesto and his YZ250F once again dominated the competition. Sure Danny Smith kept him honest by staying close enough to capitalize on a major mistake, but that was about it. The biggest move of the night came on lap fourteen when Greg Schnell pushed his way past Rodrig Thain for the last spot atop the podium. Greg has been struggling all year long and it w…

AMA SUPERCROSS SERIES: ROUND 4–125’S

Phoenix, Arizona January 27, 2001 If taking out your teammate in the first turn is the way to success, Ernesto Fonseca is on his way up and Justin Buckelew is on his way down. Buckelew did show a lot of heart by picking himself off the ground (he flew at least ten feet in the air over the start berm) and getting back in the thick of things to finish eleventh. Grant Langston is the future. Whereas Fonseca rides around and makes everything look easy, Langston gives it everything he has lap after lap with …

AMA SUPERCROSS ROUND #4—250’S

Phoenix, Arizona January 27, 2001 Round three in the battle of the century didn’t happen. Both McGrath and Carmichael won their heats (Carmichael easily, while McGrath had a little pressure from Lusk before he crashed). In the main event Carmichael would get the lead and never look back. McGrath on the other hand had to come from behind and work his way up to second after getting a bad start. Their 1-2 finish has them once again tied for the points lead. LaRocco in typical hard charging fashion, worked …

EA SPORTS SUPERCROSS ROUND #3–250’S-JAN 21

This is what it’s all about! You thought we were wrong when we said McGrath has had no competition for seven years. What do you think now? McGrath has all that he can handle in Ricky Carmichael and we are happy to finally see him give it everything he’s got to win main events. This weekend’s battle was of epic proportions as Carmichael stalked McGrath lap after lap waiting for the mistake that would let him go by. Mistakes did happen, but McGrath either recovered fast enough to block Carmichael or Ricky…

EA SPORTS SUPERCROSS ROUND #3–125’S–JAN 21

It is a cheater bike, no wait a minute, it’s not a cheater. If you heard this from the crowd around you this weekend at Anaheim they must have been getting footlong hotdogs as Ernesto stalled his bike in the whoops during his heat race. It must be scary being Ernesto. He lives in mortal fear of stalling the YZ250F every weekend. Sure, this time it only happened in a heat race and he went on to win the main event, but what happens next week if he stalls it in the main event at Pheonix? The 125 race actio…

GENOVA SUPERCROSS–DEC 3

Tortelli takes the last SX win before the millennium! Not much news has actually surfaced from the Genova Supercross held in Italy this weekend, other than that Larry Ward raced on a Honda. We do however, know who won and who didn’t. Results 1. Sebastien Tortelli 2. Ezra Lusk 3. Larry Ward 4. Nick Wey 5. Steve Lamson 6. Greg Schnell 7. Robbie Skaggs 11. Shae Bentley 13. Mickael Pichon

WORLD SUPERCROSS, ROUND TWO–NOV 27

Thanks to the cancellation of the Italian round of the World Supercross Series, the Leipzig round was the second and final round. Sure people make fun of one-day World Championships, but what about two day Championships? The big news from Leipzig was that round one winner David Vuillemin wasn’t coming. After battling with Visa problems getting back into US David wasn’t about to leave the States now that he has finally gotten in. Leipzig was Greg Albertyn’s last race. The likeable South African will stil…

NICK WEY WINS THE BARCELONA SUPERCROSS–NOV 19

This news may be a little late getting in, but we were happy to hear that last week our buddy Nick Wey at Yamaha of Troy took home the victory at the Barcelona Supercross. The list of racers competing included Steve Lamson, Mike LaRocco and Mickael Pichon. Did we mention Nick was racing a YZ250? When it comes time for the 2001 EA Supercross series Nick will race the 125 East supercross series. Nick didn’t dominate the competition, but his 4-4-1 moto finishes were consistent enough to stand atop the podi…

VULLIE KEEPS ON WINNING, JEREMY LOSES–OCT 30

David Vuillemin won all three nights of the Paris Supercross (the real Paris Supercross–not the one held a week earlier). Vuillemin won every heat race and main event he entered at Bercy (nine in all). Add this to the faux-Paris Supercross that Vuillemin won the week before and David has taken over from Larry Ward as the King of the Winter races. The overall winner of the three nights at Paris Supercross is crowned the King of Bercy–David Vuillemin is his Royal Highness! French riders swept the Paris …

IF IT’S PARIS IT MUST BE A SUPERCROSS-OCTOBER 21

Don’t confuse this Paris Supercross with the real Paris Supercross, although this round of the Paris Supercross is part of the FIM World Supercross Championship and the “real” Paris Supercross is not. The “original” Paris Supercross will be held next weekend at Bercy Stadium. David Vuillemin won round one of the FIM World Supercross Championships, with a holeshot to checkered flag victory. Vuillemin won last years race at Stade de France stadium in Paris last year also. Surprisingly, Vuillemin will not …

RICKY WINS THE LAS VEGAS U.S. OPEN-OCTOBER 16

Turn out the lights, the party’s over. And if the U.S. Open in Las Vegas is any example of how Ricky Carmichael plans to ride in the 2001 Supercross series, the season is over. The two-day format had every rider, save for Carmichael struggling to put two good races together. Ricky holeshot every race and ran away with both Saturday and Sunday’s races. Mike LaRocco was second on Saturday and Kevin Windham was second on Sunday. LaRocket and Windham, in his first ever Team Suzuki ride, were not close to Ri…

MCGRATH LOSES SHEFFIELD SUPERCROSS-OCTOBER 16

It’s not often that Jeremy McGrath loses, but when he does there is always a story. For four years Jeremy McGrath has gone to the Sheffield Supercross and for three years he went home victorious. What happened in 2000? A midpack start and an early soil sample in the whoops after a collision with one of his British competitors, put him behind. In the few seconds it took Jeremy to get up, get his works YZ250 started and his head cleared, Mike Brown was long gone.   Results 1. Mike Brown…USA 2. Jere…
