Since graduating from college in December, I have been neglecting my blogs and websites that are suppose to update everyone on motocross and supercross. I apologize and I am going to make an effort to improve this blog.

As you all know Motocross 2013 has started. Round 4 is coming up, and it is in my home state of Pennsylvania. High Point MX is coming up this Saturday, and unfortunately I have to work :( it saddens me that I won't be able to attend. Especially this year since there is no Steel City, but no worries I will have the television on so while at work I can manage to watch the races live thanks to NBC sports and Fuel TV.

So far the the first 3 rounds have been dominated by the Ryan's, mostly RV2, but last weekend at the new Muddy Creek National in Tennessee RD1 managed to pull of a 3-1 for the overall win, while RV2 who had a crash on the first lap, managed a 1-4 for 3rd overall. Others that have been in the mix-up are Justin Barcia, James Stewart, Mike Alessi and Trey Canard. While they haven't all been able to challenge the Ryan's, Barcia has came the closest. Barcia has been consistently in the top 5, and last weekend finished 2nd overall in front of RV2.

It's crazy to think of Bam-Bam up in the 450 class racing against some of his idols, and banging bars with the the veteran guys of the class. I remember him coming up through the amateurs and getting his ride with Geico Honda.

Then on to my favorite ride, "Speedy Reedy," where the heck has he been?! I'm not to sure what's going on with him, but Reed needs to pick it up that is for sure.

The 250's are definitely entertaining to watch as well. This class is definitely stacked for 2013 with people like Tomac, Roczen, Musquin, Baggett and Osborne even getting into the mix in the first and second rounds of the outdoors. Roczen and Tomac seem to be battling it out every weekend for podium spots or the win. Baggett seemed strong the first round but has faded off a bit, is his wrist causing him to have problems? If I remember correctly, Barcia won his lites championship while suffering  from a broken wrist... (my opinion totally) something else could be going on, and I do know its not easy to ride while suffering from an injury. I'm just speculating some of the riders and why they say they are not always 100% to race.

Well that's all for now.. meanwhile here are some pictures from High Point over the years I have been there.

what happened to Pourcel? 

Dungey in the lites class.

As you all can tell, I'm a bit of a Reed fan.. Always have been and always will be <3

Motorcycle Hall of Fame Museum

While most were watching Dungey dominate outdoors Saturday afternoon, I spent mine walking through the Motorcycle Hall of Fame Museum and let me tell you that it did nottttt disappoint me at all! In fact I enjoyed myself the whole way through the place. I thought before going that I was only going to enjoy the motocross and supercross sections, but I ended up finding all of the exhibits interesting! It is seriously a great place if you love any kind of motorcycles. My family and I spent probably 3 hours walking around (and it really isn't that big) but we were so intrigued by all the bikes, facts and memorabilia that we couldn't pass anything up without reading what it was. Not to mention we also spent another hour in the gift shop section. The man working at the front counter was also so nice and willing to help. I have nothing bad to say about any of this trip except don't stay at a hotel by the Columbus Airport. It was cool seeing the airplanes land and take off but there is seriously NOTHING to do around there and you have to drive on the highway the whole time, so going out and driving back was not an option therefore we spent most of our evening on the patio or at the lounge enjoying our weekend get-away. Ok, back to more about the motorcycle hall of fame... I think they could update the motorcross/supercross section, but that's just what I think because they could add a lot more people. I was thinking Carmichael, Stewart, and Reed would have some little part since they have done things in the MX/SX industry that I think could/should get recognized. They have McGrath, which I was in love with, but I thought it would be a little different. However, I am not complaining just stating a thought I had. I loved every single section we walked through, there is an upstairs and a downstairs to the building and a patio out the back incase you want to enjoy yourself half way through the museum. Although it was rainy and gloomy when we went (glad we picked an indoor activity) we made the best out of it. OH! and downstairs they have a little questionnaire and if you fill it out and take it back upstairs with you to the front desk, you receive a free sticker (normally costs like $3) I was happy with that and the guy even sold us key chains that had not been marked or put up for sale yet :) 

Here are some pictures I took in the Motorcross/Supercross section :)

The start of outdoors has started, hangtown classic is underway with practices and qualifying times are being taken for the afternoon motos to start. I know I'm excited and ready for the outdoor action to begin! It seems like forever since last season and now with the changes that have all taken place over the past supercross season it will be great to see the battles shaping out for the nationals.

Catch all the action on FUEL TV today at 4 pm est. and then second motos at 12 am est. time.

Only one week away

Only one more week to wait for the MX Nationals to start! Personally I am still bummed out that TwoTwo motorsports will not be in attendance at the races, but things happen and he will be back next year. I was excited to hear the news about Stewart racing outdoors, and looking comfortable on his new suzuki. The guy hasn't looked like himself racing in quiet awhile... It will be good to see if the old "bubba" has came back and ready to battle and maybe even win a championship!

Even without two other contenders, Villopoto and Reed, this outdoors season should be one to remember. Short, Brayton, Millsaps, Weimer and now Rattray will have a chance to prove themselves and hopefully battle at the front of the group with Dungey and Stewart. I know it sounds like I am automatically putting Dungey and Stewart at the top, but I want Short, Brayton, etc... to battle and even win races this season but it just seems practical that Dungey and Stewart will be up front and battling like they have before.

I for one will be glued to live timing and then the television on May 19th to watch the start of the 2012 MX Nationals! Be sure you are too!

Bring on the Nationals

Supercross is now over after an exciting Vegas finale this past weekend. Now with only 11 days remaining, the motocross nationals are set to being May 19 at Hangtown in California. It is going to be an exciting outdoor season for the fans and riders, except for those still hurt like Reed, Villopoto and Canard. With that being said it looks like Millsaps, Short, Brayton and Weimer may have a chance to battle up front and make it on to the podium. Although big news has been surfacing this past week as James Stewart heads to Yoshimira Suzuki and Tyla Rattray fills-in for Villopoto, so it looks like Dungey is going to have some competition this summer and hopefully there are some great battles during the races!

This week, with it being the riders only week off for about another month, is full of testing and preparing not only themselves but the team and their bikes setup for outdoors. Supercross and Motocross are different and yet alike in someways, but as for their setup the bikes suspension for outdoors needs to be adjusted a lot more because of the different terrain that the riders deal with each week. The riders that come out to Hangtown and show top results are usually the teams that have put in the time and have been able to test a lot longer than the other riders. Usually during the last couple weeks of supercross the riders begin testing their outdoor settings and dialing in with their bike, unless they happen to be in a battle for the championship then that leaves little time for the team to test outdoors because they want them to be completely focused on the championship and winning it. However, this year no team should have an excuse for late testing (unless your Stewart who just switched teams, again) because Villopoto had the championship clenched 4 rounds early, Barcia had won the east coast championship early, and well Tomac might have a little excuse but he did win the championship 2 weeks early. What it may be though, racing is racing and the riders know what they have to do to be prepared for outdoors!
