REM MOTOCROSS RACE REPORT: STILEZ STYLES, OTSUKA WINS & A SHARP CRASH SEQUENCE
PHOTOS BY DEBBI TAMIETTI & JON ORTNER
After the World Vet Motocross Championship, REM Motocross took a week off to let its riders lick their wounds and/or celebrate. REM came back this past weekend to run a super efficient program that gave everyone long motos, a tough track and a program that got them on their way home by 2:00 p.m. It was 85-degrees at Glen Helen on race day, but no one seemed to complain (since there is weatherman talk of rain next Wednesday and Thursday—which could mean perfect track conditions for next Saturday’s race).
Before looking at this week’s photo gallery by Jon Ortner and Debbi Tamietti, you should know that Debbi has a new photo gallery web page where she is beginning to store all of her race photos. Debbi has always sent photos from the races she shoots to any rider who asks her for photos of them racing. And, she has done it for free. But, it has become a very time consuming task, so she decided to put all the photos she shoots up on her new website at debbitamietti.smugmug.com.
She has posted all the photos she shot at the World Vet Motocross Championship on Sunday November 3, and at the last couple REM races. If you were at any of those races, go to the galleries and find any photo that you want. Debbi Isn’t trying to make money from her website, because she has always given her photos away for free, but if you download a photo from her site the digital photo will cost $1—yes, you read that right—one dollar. And she has options where you can order bigger prints and products.
The actual line for this corner starts where number 23 is, but Mike Monaghan doesn’t like to be confined by convention, so he went around the outside, left the track for a few feet then launched down the hill. Photo: Jon Ortner
