MXA’S WEEKEND NEWS ROUND-UP: SUPERCROSS IS OVER, MOTOCROSS IS CONFUSED & THE GP’S ARE DELAYED

 

HAVE YOU SEEN THE AUGUST 2020 ISSUE OF MXA? YOU SHOULD SUBSCRIBE BECAUSE IT IS THE BEST DEAL IN  MOTOCROSS

In this issue, out this week, we testa full race Pro Circuit Yamaha YZ125 that we built for the World Two-Stroke Championships. We also had Doug Dubacj sheparad our GYTR-kitted YZ450F through its hop-up phase. Unwilling to leave well enough alone we herded up a bunch of kids to help us test a Stacyc electric balance bike, ask a kid to let us ride his full-race Supermini and not only resurrected a 2005 Honda CR125, but blew it up, while we were at it. If that wasn’t enough we interview Rocket Rex Staten to prove that we weren’t afraid of him.
