MOTOCROSS ACTION’S MID-WEEK REPORT BY JOHN BASHER (11/6/13)

PHOTO OF THE WEEK       What will you be doing when you’re 50 years old? Maybe you’ve already reached that benchmark. Good for you. Start drinking Ensure!     Doug Dubach is the latest edition to the 50 class, which means tens years of tormenting the world’s best +50 crowd. That’s exactly what he did this weekend when Dr. D walked away with his first over-50 World Vet Championship. It marked his 22nd World Vet title. By the way, he hammered the +40 class on Saturday, s…

REM GLEN HELEN MOTOCROSS RACE REPORT: NICK WEY RUNS INTO A BUZZ SAW NAMED JUSTIN JONES

Photos by Dan Alamangos and Ernie Becker Justin Jones slides on his heel during the 450 Pro race. Well aware that the rest of the nation is scorching hot, SoCal’s motocross racers have enjoyed the most pleasant summer in years. Although the REM motocross racers have had to endure a few 100-plus degree days, for the most part they have been racing in balmy temps for the last four races. The unseasonably cool temperatures have had a reverse effect on the competition ? as the riders aren?t riding to conser…

MOTOCROSS ACTION’S MID-WEEK REPORT BY JOHN BASHER (7/10/13)

PHOTO OF THE WEEK     In the words of freelance photographer, Scott Mallonee, who shot Red Bud for the first time ever (and the above photo), “Man-O-man, what a party! The other Nationals pale in comparison. The crowd was boisterous and full of beans, made for lots of good venue shooting.” MINI-VIEW: ANDREW SHORT By […]

MOTOCROSS ACTION’S MID-WEEK REPORT (11/13/12)

By John Basher PHOTO OF THE WEEK     Daryl Ecklund does his best to move tectonic plates. Read below for more information on the 2013 TM 250MX. MINI-VIEW: MIKE LaROCCO     Mike LaRocco was my favorite rider when I first became interested in motocross. He was a bulldog on a bike, getting the worst starts possible and ripping through the pack. ?The Rock? wasn?t flashy by any means, and he was reserved off the track. Maybe that’s why I liked him so much. I?d stand in an autogr…

PHOTO GALLERY: NICK WEY PREPARES FOR THE 2012 SUPERCROSS SERIES ON HIS KAWASAKI

Sometimes it’s good to roll the dice and take a chance.

Despite being overcast, the conditions were excellent. Check out this photo gallery from the fruits of their effort. Simply click on the image above to view the shots.

WORLD NEWS: KYLE CHISHOLM IS THE KING OF PARIS: MCCOY WINS ANOTHER MUDDER IN AUSTRALIA: BOWERS TAKES DES MOINES

Eli Tomac has proven, since the Monster Cup, that he is proficient on a CRF450. Photo: Adam Duckworth There were three noteworthy off-season races this weekend. The 29th running of the Paris Supercross, round two of the Australian Supercross Championship and the opening round of the AMA Arenacross series. Paris, more of an Arenacross than a Supercross, is typically a battle between the American hired guns and the local French heroes, while the Aussie Supercross series has been marred by torrential downp…

MONSTER MILLION, OOPS, MONSTER CUP RESULTS; RV GOES BANK IN A BIG WAY

As with all one million dollar winners, Ryan Villopoto (center) will most likely have to choose between a smaller immediate cash payout or 50 grand a year for as long as he lives. ?It’s pretty unreal,? exclaimed 2011 Monster Energy Cup Supercross/motocross winner Ryan Villopoto. “I?m happy we were able to pull it off. To back it up next year would be hard, so if we do, it would be great. I can?t thank my team enough for this amazing victory.? In moto one, Villopoto jumped out to an early lead with the h…

MOTOCROSS ACTION’S MID-WEEK REPORT (03/30/11)

By John Basher   PHOTO OF THE WEEK     I thought that it was going to be a challenge picking the photo of the week. It was, until James Stewart decided to impersonate a police officer and pull over three off-duty cops. Oops. Bubba was booked, had his mug shot taken, and made big news. It’s a big no-no to impersonate a police officer and ranks as a felony. Above is his police photo.     What does this all mean for Stewart? Jail time? Community service? A depleting fan b…

GLEN HELEN PRACTICE DAY PHOTOS:

Ryan Dungey was flying at Glen Helen. He’s aiming for his fourth championship in as many tries. Kyle Cunningham had a great race on the Valli Motorsports YZ450F at Las Vegas. He was out at Glen Helen putting the Valli Motorsports YZ450F through its paces. He looked very good. Usually back in Georgia, it was nice to see Martin Davalos spinning laps out west. Here, he flies over the massive soon-to-be USGP finish line jump. Jessica Patterson switched brands during the off-season. She’s aiming to take back…

TiLUBE/BROWN MOTORSPORTS ST. LOUIS RACE REPORT

   In St. Louis, Mo. this past weekend, 59000+ fans were in attendance to watch the 14th round of the Monster Energy AMA Supercross series.     This weekend’s event was held at the Edward Jones Dome in downtown St. Louis. This city, known for its famous Arch or ?Gateway to the West?, always seems to throw the racers a curve ball. The most famous of which would be Jeff Emig’s win over the seemingly unbeatable Jeremy McGrath in 1996. That would be Emig’s only win and McGrath’s onl…
