THIS WEEK IN MXA: FIRSTHAND EXPERIENCES FROM THE 2021 WORLD 2-STROKE CHAMPIONSHIP
The MXA wrecking crew had eight two-strokes dolled up for the 2021 Wiseco World Two-Stroke Championship at Glen Helen and we had a great time racing and covering the event. It was a blast from the past hearing nothing but two-strokes sing on the long and challenging track. Unfortunately, the day wasn’t without it’s struggles though. On the second lap of practice Josh Grant and MXA’s Josh Mosiman tangled mid-air and both went down hard. Mosiman was sore, but able to race the rest of the day. Grant unfortunately suffered six broken ribs and a punctured lung. While everyone else prepared for Moto 1, Grant went to the hospital. Luckily his condition got better throughout the day and he was able to go home in the evening. With Josh Grant out and his Twisted Development built YZ300 out of commission, Robbie Wageman (who originally came only to support his brother and friends) asked to fill-in for Grant. The bike wasn’t in great shape either, but the Twisted Development crew was able to put some JB weld on the cases and straighten out the rest of the bike enough for Robbie to race and win on the borrowed bike after only riding one lap of practice. In our latest ‘This Week in MXA’ video, Josh sits down after a long day of racing to explain his side of the story and give some insight to the rest of his race day on which he earned a total of $1550 in Pro purse money.
