THEY ARE ON THE LINE TOGETHER, BUT THEY AREN’T ON THE SAME RACE


As the AMA XNUMX Supercross season reaches its “almost halfway” point this weekend in Atlanta, it is a good time to see where riders stand with XNUMX races done and XNUMX to go. First, only XNUMX riders have earned points in the XNUMX class so far. With XNUMX points up for grabs at each race, there are XNUMX points left for any rider who can sweep the boards. However, for every XNUMX-point increment that a rider falls behind the points leader, he is one full race out of the lead. Here are the riders who are one, two, three, four and five races behind the points leader.

Eli Tomac is XNUMX points behind points leader Ryan Dungey. That is as close as you can get to being one full race behind — without being in the hole.

ON THE SAME RACE
When the XNUMX riders line up for the main event in Atlanta only Ryan Dungey, Marvin Musquin and Eli Tomac are racing on the same race.

EEN RAS ACHTER (MEER DAN 25 PUNTEN UIT DE LEIDING)
Cole Seely is XNUMX points behind Dungey—thus, even if Dungey DNF’ed Atlanta, he would still be one point in front of Seely. Jason Anderson is XNUMX points back (largely because he was disqualified from one race for shoving Vince Freise in the tunnel). Although XNUMX points is a long way back, Jason isn’t two races behind yet.

TWEE WEDSTRIJDEN (MEER DAN 50 PUNTEN UIT DE LEIDING)
Davi Millsaps is XNUMX points behind Dungey. He would have to win two races, while Ryan didn’t make either main event to get within one point of Ryan. Davi does join Musquin, Tomac, Seely and Anderson as the only riders within XNUMX points of Dungey.

Cooper Webb is currently XNUMXth in points, but will fall out of the top ten after this weekend (see story below)..

THREE RACES BEHIND (MORE THAN XNUMX POINTS OUT OF THE LEAD)
Dean Wilson with XNUMX AMA points, Cooper Webb with XNUMX AMA points, Chad Reed with XNUMX AMA points, Broc Tickle with XNUMX AMA points, Blake Baggett with XNUMX AMA points, Josh Grant with XNUMX AMA points, Jake Weimer with XNUMX AMA points and Ken Roczen with XNUMX AMA points are all three full races behind the points leader.

FOUR RACES BEHIND (MORE THAN XNUMX POINTS OUT OF THE LEAD)
Since Ryan Dungey has XNUMX AMA points, any rider with less than XNUMX points is four full races out of the lead. This list includes Justin Brayton (XNUMX points), Vince Friese (XNUMX points), Weston Peick (XNUMX points), Malcolm Stewart (XNUMX points), Justin Bogle (XNUMX points) and Trey Canard (XNUMX points).

FIVE RACES OR MORE BEHIND (MORE THAN XNUMX POINTS OUT OF THE LEAD)
The remaining XNUMX riders who have earned points in the XNUMX Supercross series are five races behind Dungey.

COOPER WEEB TO MISS ATLANTA SUPERCROSS, BUT SHOULD BE BACK SOON

After spending time with his doctor and getting an MRI on Tuesday, it has been determined that Cooper Webb’s shoulder has not suffered any broken bones or dislocations—just deep bruising. He will sit out Atlanta, but hopes to be back for Toronto or Daytona. On a side note, Benny Blose also suffered a shoulder injury in Minneapolis, but his was more serious and he will not return to the Supercross series this seaosn. Foto: Brian Converse

WHAT MXA WAS UP TO WEDNESDAY AT MILESTONE

In what has been a busy week for the MXA wrecking crew we schedule four tests for Wednesday at Milestone MX Park, but lucky a test with WP ell through, so Jody and Dennis were able to split off and work on two test, while Daryl Ecklund and Johnny Jelderda spent their time testing the injured Tyler Bower’s XNUMXFifty Yamaha YZXNUMXF on the Milestone Supercross track.

Tyler Bowers even came out to spend the day watching someone else ride his race bike. Tyler suffered a broken femur in a crash that rounded-up Jeremy Martin also. Tyler looks good and was getting around with no ill effects showing.

Dave Dye, former AMA National tech inspector, turned the wrenches for the MXA guys on the XNUMXFifty Yamaha. It wasn’t his first time and it probably won’t be the last time.

Those XNUMXFifty mechanics know how to live. With an injured rider, the days of health food and Kale are behind them.

After spending a couple months on the kickstart version, we have switched to the optional XNUMX Honda CRFXNUMX electric starter kit.

The new CRFXNUMX clutch perch has a mechanism on it that requires the clutch lever to be pulled in before the Honda’s electric starter will kick over. However, the bike doesn’t have to be in neutral. We haven’t had any issues with the electric starter since we started testing it.

Although MXA is scheduled to test suspension at Glen Helen on Thursday with the Honda R&D department, we had our pick of SDI forks on Wednesday.

While we were fiddling with the electric starter, we decided to test a Pro Circuit XNUMX CRFXNUMX exhaust system. We had already dyno’ed it, but wanted to run back-to-back tests against the stock system (top) before racing it this weekend.

The Pro Circuit pipes were a breeze to install. Everything line-up and the fit was perfect.

GEHEUGEN VAN DE MANIER WAAR WE ZIJN

If you are even remotely familiar with Montesa motocross bike, you know that their model designations start with “V” as in VR, VA, VB, VG, etc? Ever wonder what the “V” stands for? The answer is the man above. Finnish star Kalevi Vehkonnen was Montesa’s best performing GP rider in the early XNUMXs, so Montesa named their bikes “Vehkonnen Replicas” or VR for short. And, even after Kalevi left Montesa, all future designations started with a “V.”

CLASSIC MOTOCROSS ADS FROM THE GOOD OLD DAYS

You Don’t see a lot of factory riders today doing ads for an aftermarket company that does their suspension, but Rick Johnson and Broc Glover had a good time doing this XNUMX ad for Sinons/Ohlins.
