MOTOCROSS ACTION MID-WEEK REPORT

#WHIPITWEDNESDAY

Rider: Ryder DiFrancesco
Track: Glen Helen
Photographer: Trevor Nelson

TWO-STROKE SPOTLIGHT: DENNIS REDDING’S 1987 CR500

“I have attached some photos of my “daily driver” 1987 CR500. I run a FMF Gnarly pipe and power core silencer, Excel wheels and powder coated hubs. The suspension is Race Tech gold valves in the rear with an Eibach spring. Front forks are either rebuilt stock with correct springs or I alternate to 2007 Pro Circuit A kit, although the stock stuff is more compliant.” –Dennis Redding.

HAVE YOU SEEN THE JUNE ISSUE OF MXA? YOU SHOULD, YOU REALLY SHOULD

What’s in the newest issue of MXA? There is an five bike 125 two-stroke shootout with accurate weights, prices and dyno charts. We also shootout the stock 2021 Honda CRF450 against the $13,400 Honda CRF450 Works Edition. We find a way to test of a 2021 GasGas 350 four-stroke, even though GasGas doesn’t make an MC 350 test (the trick is to start with a 2021 GasGas EX 350 cross-country). And those are just some of bike tests! We also have an emotional tribute to Marty and Nancy Smith by former Honda teammate Warren Reid, who’s stepdad was also Marty’s factory Honda mechanic. Great job Warren! And, much more!
