MXA INTERVIEWS THE FLYING ECUADORIAN: MARTIN DAVALOS

Martin will be one of the favorites to win the 250 East Supercross opener in Dallas. By Eric Johnson   Mitch Payton. Monster Energy/Pro Circuit/Kawasaki Race Shop. Corona, California. Thursday, February 13, 2014 at 7:00 P.M.   ?I think Martin is ready. I was behind him last year when he won five heat races and almost won two main events. He could have won the Phoenix and Dallas mains but he didn?t finish it off. It was close, but not quite enough. I still really believe in him. I?ve believed i…

MOTOCROSS ACTION’S MID-WEEK REPORT BY JOHN BASHER (2/12/14)

INJURY REPORT: KEN ROCZEN BREAKS HIS ARM-WILL NOW RACE THE 250 EAST SUPERCROSS SERIES

Please note that this is a 2011 story and has nothing to do with the current Ken Roczen rumors in December of 2014. You would have figured that out by the #70 on his bike, the reference to the 250 class and the fact it says he broke his arm on December 26 (when it is only December 19, 2013). Ken Roczen will sit out A1, A2, Dodger Stadium, Phoenix, Oakland and San Diego. KTM Motorsports announced today that Red Bull/KTM Factory team rider Ken Roczen broke his left arm in a practice crash while training a…

WE RIDE DEAN WILSON’S PRO CIRCUIT KAWASAKI KX250F

Pro Circuit /Kawasaki rider Dean Wilson had a fruitful freshman season in 2010. Although he didn?t win a title, the Scotch-Canadian-American won races and put himself in a position to win championships both indoors and in the Nationals. And, perhaps if Wilson hadn?t missed Supercross races due to a hangup caused by an expired work visa in Canada, he might have emerged with the 2010 AMA 250 East crown. Wilson chalked up his first pro season to experience. And, aside from a few costly rookie mistakes (e.g…

Can he follow up his freshman 450 season with another tremendous year and be number one all year long in 2012? It’s a tall order to fill, but RD will tell you that he’s up for the challenge. THE ANALYSIS: WHO’S GOING TO WIN A1?     After scouring online message boards, I?ve learned some interesting news. Many people already know who is going to finish in the top five at Anaheim…
