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!
