MOTOCROSS ACTION’S MID-WEEK REPORT: TOMMY HAHN, GARY JONES, CODY WEBB, SEAN COLLIER, TROY LEE & JANTZ GRODZICKI

By John Basher REST IN PEACE, JANTZ GRODZICKI     I never met Christopher ?Jantz? Grodzicki. It doesn?t matter.

WE RIDE LANCE VINCENT’S MUNN RACING KTM 250SXF… SADLY BECAUSE LANCE HASN’T BEEN ABLE TO RACE MUCH THIS YEAR

It is often said that the only difference between funding a race team and throwing money in a bonfire is that you?ll actually stay warm if you burn the money. That comparison isn?t far off. Fielding a professional motocross race team is a money pit. There’s a gross misunderstanding about the expenses needed to even get to a single race.
