WHAT THE MXA WRECKING CREW WAS UP TO THIS WEEK
On Tuesday the MXA wrecking crew drove north to Zaca Station MX Park for the new Shoei helmet intro, while there MXA’s Daryl Ecklund took the opportunity to wring out the 2018 Yamaha YZ125 two-stroke (while Spencer Owens warm up on his Canon).
On Thursday the whole MXA gang convened at Glen Helen Raceway for the first test rides on the 2018 KTM 125SX and 250SX two-stroke. We got there at 6:45 a.m. (before the track opened to the public) and didn’t leave until 3;00 p.m. It was a busy day.
KTM’s David O’Connor fiddles with a 2018 KTM 150SX, while Jody Weisel tries to figure out how to use a fork pump with one hand (note the cast on his left arm). Meanwhile Dennis Stapleton and Husqvarna’s Anthony Da Graca compare callouses.
