MXA’S LAST WEEK IN REVIEW: WHAT YOU MISSED LAST WEEK IF YOU WERE IN QUANTANAMO

HISTORY AS IT HAPPENS! PHOTO MOMENTOS OF KTM’s BIG NIGHT Ryan Dungey spanning the gap on his way to KTM’s first-ever Supercross victory. They said it couldn’t be done? Who said that? Well, Roger DeCoster for one (when he was at Honda and Suzuki). The slippery Phoenix dirt required maximum throttle control?that’s where Ryan is the best. “Pop, pop, fizz, fizz! Oh what a relief it is!” There were a lot of naysayers when Ryan Dungey passed up Joe Gibbs and Team Honda for KTM?but none now. The first man to m…

PHOENIX SUPERCROSS RESULTS: DUNGEY MAKES HISTORY…IN AMERICA AND AUSTRIA

Ryan Dungey on the top step of the podium.                           Photo: Hoppenworld The quick and dirty summation: 1. Ryan Dungey took the lead on lap one and was never headed. He was aided by bad starts by Reed, and Stewart, plus a Millsaps crash that blocked Villopoto. Dungey’s win was the first-ever for KTM in the 450 class…and the stamp of approval for next year’s fuel-injected KTM 450SXF. 2. Kevin Windham ran in the front three …

MOTOCROSS ACTION’S MID-WEEK REPORT: (01/15/12)

MXA INTERVIEW: COLE SEELY How to win? “McDonalds drive-throughs and a lot of couch time.” Before getting his Troy Lee Designs gig (and an exclusive contract to ride the bikes), Cole Seely was known to don an orange helmet and throw down some crazy whips for MXA’s cameras. The MXA gang likes to see Cole do well at the races, and you can’t get a better start to the season than getting the “W” and maximum points at the first round. We called Cole to get his perspective on how he did it. MXA: Can you give u…

SUPERCROSS NATIONAL NUMBERS: EVERY NATIONAL MOTOCROSS NUMBER THAT HAS RACED THI SYEAR

Two-digit numbers are a snap, but can you identify three-digit AMA riders? We help you below. It is easy to find out who’s number 7 (James Stewart) or 41 (Trey Canard) or even 95 (Chris Plouffe), but have you ever tried to find out who is AMA National number 997? The answer is Linus Sandahl. To make life easier, MXA has compiled a complete list of active AMA National numbers for 2012 (through the Phoenix Supercross).

ANAHEIM 1 RESULTS: VILLOPOTO & SEELY ARE FLAWLESS-EVERYONE ELSE? NOT SO MUCH

Ryan Dungey ended all the questions about his switch to KTM with a podium position at A1. Photo: Hoppenworld Ryan Villopoto won Anaheim 1 in front of 45,050 fans and 19 dejected chasers. ?Villopoto made us look silly out here tonight,? said Chad Reed. ?I am just happy to get second place tonight in this field of riders.? Ryan Dungey finished third, but it was not without drama. Dungey crashed early in the race while running third behind Villopoto and Reed. James Stewart passed Dungey, Ryan fought back a…

WELCOME TO A1’s PITS: MXA TAKES YOU BEHIND THE SCENES AT ANAHEIM STADIUM

With Trey Canard once again sidelined by injury, it was pretty quiet over at the factory Honda pit. Joining Trey on the limping list was Honda’s Director of Racing Gary Martini who recently broke his femur while out riding his mountain bike. Still without a factory team, but supporting a handful of satellite squads, there was plenty of Yamaha personnel found over at the new Valli/Star team pit, including: (L-R) Bob Oliver, who has been a factory Yamaha mechanic since the ’80’s, Alan Olson, who was …
