DEBBI TAMIETTI’S GLEN HELEN PHOTO GALLERY
Glen Helen uses fire hoses to water the parts of its tracks that the water truck can’t reach. And occasionally the hoses fail. Here, Jody Weisel double-folds the hose so that the end will stop flailing around until he can get to the valve. He learned this trick building AMA National tracks at Saddleback and Glen Helen.
This is how you blow up a berm. Randel Fout (52) has perfect form (and no fingers on the clutch or the brakes) as he powers his KTM 350SXF out of a banked right-hander. Yes, those are Showa TAC A-Kit air forks on the front.
When there is only one 2016 TM 450FI-MX in the country you’d think MXA would be careful with it. Nope, five different MXA test riders spent time in the saddle. Here, Mark Hall spends some time out of the saddle.
Broadi Davis (126) can’t whip his YZ250F any farther than this. Well, he could whip it another inch, but then his rear tire would hit the bank and he’d be whipping it in a completely different direction.
