Interview: AMA Women's Motocross Champion Jessica Patterson

Jessica Patterson is the 2010 AMA Women's National Motocross Champion. Here is Supercross.com's latest interview with JP$.

Jessica, congratulations on your 2010 AMA Women's National MX Championship. You walked away with some amazing trophies from this summer's race wins .... where do you put all those great awards, and what does it mean to you when you see them?

Thanks Annj. I usually go straight to my parents house and drop them all off and let my mom decorate the house with them. But recently she told me that I have started to bring home too many, and to figure out where to put them at my place because her place is now full.

Her suggestion to me was to rent a storage unit if I didn?t want to keep them all over the house. They are all just hanging out at her house right now, and eventually when I decide where I want to move, then I will take them with me and start the decorating.

To see the trophies is pretty cool. It is what I have been working so hard for, and after struggling for for two years and now coming back and winning the championship in 2010, it makes it that much better. Seeing that I have all those number 1 trophies from each race except for two, it reminds me of how good of a year it really was, so it makes me really happy and makes me want to keep pushing.

Monster Energy Cup Supercross Motocross Race Report

It's the first ever Monster Energy Cup, Sam Boyd Stadium in Las Vegas. It's the race everyone's been talking about. Why? A few reasons - first - a million dollars to any rider that can win all the motos. Second reason - new race format - three motos! Three ten lap main events! Third - unique race track. Although very similar to a supercross race, promoter Feld Motor Sports hired two of the biggest names in Supercross and Motocross to help build the track, and to help make it part 'motocross'. Those two big names would be Ricky Carmichael, and Jeremy McGrath. Another reason - new rules! Or lack thereof. The teams and riders get to use two-way radios to communicate while the races are going on, ala NASCAR. Ryan Villopoto has won the 2011 Monster Energy Cup event in Las Vegas, and the 1 million dollar prize money that goes with it!

Supercross.com has published three preview articles since we've arrived here in Vegas for the Monster Energy Cup hybrid Motocross / Supercross.

1. Press Conference on Thursday. 2. Amanda blog and has video of Thursday's activities in Vegas. 3. Video with riders and others explaining how they would blow a milion bucks should they win the Monster Million Dollars tonight.

There is another component that makes this race special. It's Las Vegas. You only need to look back at last May's Supercross Season Finale where Ryan Villopoto clinched his first ever AMA Supercross Series Championship. And Kenny Roczen won his first ever AMA main event in the 250 West Lites class. And more.

All of today's action from Sam Boyd Stadium and this first ever Monster Energy Cup Motocross / Supercross will be below. Who's racing? How about 2011 AMA Supercross Series Champion Ryan Villopoto? (Ryan also won the 2011 AMA Motocross Championship, and was part of the winning USA team in the Motocross of Nations in France last month.) How about Ryan Dungey, also a AMA Supercross Series and MX Series Champion (2010), making his debut for the KTM Red Bull team. West Supercross Champs Broc Tickle and Jake Weimer, one of the youngest riders on the racing circuit today, Kevin Windham. Justin Brayton is making his American Honda Muscle Milk team debut. Two time world Motocross Champion in the MX2 class Marvin Musquin, racing on the 350 KTM. And there are plenty more riders ...

RJ Says: 1985 LA Coliseum Supercross video - part 1

Where supercross started - the fabled Los Angeles Coliseum in 1972. This video is from 1985 at the L. A. Coliseum Supercross.

This video is part 1 of 2. I wanted to get it up for you as quickly as possible. In this video, for better or worse, you'll see a lot of me (I'm number 5 on a Yamaha). But in the second video that's coming, you'll see a lot more of my friends in the race like David Bailey, Bob Hannah, Jeff Ward, Goat Breker, Broc Glover, Ron Lechien, Johnny O'Mara, and others.

I think in 1985, we ran two 'main events' at each supercross. Part of what you see here (if my memory is correct) is me winning the first 'main event'.

And stay tuned for the second video! Both videos have the fabled Peristyle uphill / downhill. And especially in the second video coming late next week, with guys like Jeff Ward, David Bailey, Bob Hannah, Broc Glover, Ron Lechien, Johnny O'Mara and myself - you'll see riders with about 33 AMA Supercross and Motocross titles combined!

Hope you enjoy the videos ...

DC Moto TF Ride Day with Josh Hill

In the 2010 AMA Supercross Championship series, Josh Hill consistently found himself on the podium. He ended the season sixth overall in points, in which he finished second in 5 of the 17 Main Events. In July, Josh spent time preparing for the 'Speed and Style' event for X Games 16. His practice session went from 'landing a backflip on his first attempt' to 'under rotating the next time around.' This horrific crash sent Josh to the hospital with a list of injuries and a whole new respect for the sport of Freestyle Motocross. I caught up with Josh, at Pala Raceway for the DC Moto TF Ride day, where he talked about his rehabilitation, his plans for Supercross 2011, and more!

Angela: Hey Josh, you are looking good. How are you feeling?

Josh: Yeah I am getting better, everything is starting to heal up and I am getting to where I can function normally again. So it is getting better, but I need to focus on getting my body stronger. That is my main thing right now.

Honda World Motocross takes first win with 2012 CRF450R

Competing at the Sugo round of the Japanese National Motocross Championship, Honda World MX team riders Rui Gon�alves and Evgeny Bobryshev had their first opportunity to familiarise themselves with the machinery they will be using to contest the 2012 MX1 World Motocross Championships - and they would start just as they mean to go on, putting their Honda CRF450R machines on the top steps of the podium.

After just a half day with the new bike, prior to the Sugo race, Rui Gon�alves and Evgeny Bobryshev ventured into the competitive environment - the ideal scenario to put the new machine through its paces. Gon�alves would earn overall glory on the day with two solid performances. After finishing third in the first moto, he would go on to win the second in dominant style - earning himself the overall victory. Team-mate Bobryshev would post a consistent performance, finishing second in both heats, despite a few small mistakes. Home star Narita-san would provide the stiffest competition, taking the win in the first moto before both Honda World Motocross riders really found their stride and eclipsed him in the second running.

The Sugo race came at the beginning of a five-day testing programme in Japan for the Honda World Motocross Team. Engineers from the team are working in close unison with engineers from Honda Japan as they evaluate the new prototype Honda CRF450R that will be used in the 2012 MX1 World Championship season.

Rui Gon�alves, Honda World Motocross: "It feels good to take the win on my first outing with the new bike. It was the first time I have ridden properly since the Motocross of Nations - as I have only been practicing since then, so I was riding a bit tight at first. But in the second moto I let things flow a bit more and got the result. We are all working really hard out here to evaluate the new package and so far things are going really well."

Evgeny Bobryshev, Honda World Motocross: "Honestly my racing performance was not so good. I got arm-pump in the first race and had a few problems in the second, twisting my knee, twice! The racing schedule is pretty tight in the Japanese championship and you don?t really have time to bed yourself in properly. Despite this it was real important to test the new bike and we are all really happy with what we have; it is something special. Over the next few days we will learn even more about it."

Roger Harvey, Off-road Manager, Honda Motor Europe: "We are pretty happy with the result from this event, but to be honest it was not all about results. We wanted to get some time under our belts with the new bike and we have started things off on the right foot. The next few days of testing will be equally as important and with help from Honda Japan, we are positive that we will find a strong direction with the new package."

RJ SAYS: Hidden Supercross Treasures

This 2010 Supercross season has gone exactly as no one expected. Everyone figured it was going to be a battle between the same two supercross 'titans' as last season - James Stewart and Chad Reed. Last year after 17 races they were the top two, with James the champion by four points over Chad.

To everyone's surprise, even their own, both are currently not racing - injured. They are watching what is essentially a 450 Supercross 'rookie' have a phenomenal year so far (Ryan Dungey).

A hidden treasure is not Ryan Dungey doing so well. I felt, as many others did, that he would have a great year. Based on the following: he's done well & won on a 450 before this season, all the confidence he had coming into this season from winning two championships in 2009 (the 250 West Lites Supercross, and the 250 AMA Outdoor Motocross) and his tremendous riding on a 450 for Team USA at the recent Motocross des Nations in Italy in October.

Women's AMA Motocross National Championship numbers for 2011 season

Beginning last season, MX Sports Pro Racing implemented a new numbering system for the Women's AMA National Motocross championship. In years past, riders selected their numbers based on availability and order of selection was determined by where a rider finished in the standings the previous season. While the champion was designated to wear the number one plate, all other competitors were permitted to select any number that was available.

The 2010 campaign marked the debut of a new numbering system that determines a rider's number by where she finished the previous season. As a result, one's finishing position in the championship would serve as her number for the following season.

While Women's MX Champion Jessica Patterson will enter 2011 with the #1 plate on her bike, jersey and helmet, below is a list of the remaining numbers for next season's MotorcycleUSA Women's Motocross Championship in accordance to each woman's position in the final standings for 2010:

RJ Says: Moving to Pro 4 Off-Road Truck Racing in 2011

Last year I won the TORC Pro 2 Off-Road Truck racing championship. This year I'm moving to the Pro 4 class.

What's the difference between Pro 2 and Pro 4? Pro 2 is two wheel drive. Pro 4 is four wheel drive.

With Pro 4 you can drive more aggressively - you can get on the gas more, because you have much more traction with all four wheels.

Also in 2011, I'm with a new team - Menzies. Plus I have help from Dodge, and Red Bull.

In this video below, this is one of the first times I started testing for 2011. It's a track at Glen Helen Raceway! (Home of the US MX GP)

Since 1990, the [...]

Red Bull Teka KTM factory motocross rider Steffi Laier "Ready to Race" in 2011

When Steffi Laier, Red Bull Teka KTM factory rider and two-time Women's MX World Champion takes to the track in the pre-season MX races in Valence, France, this weekend it will be her first competitive ride for 2011. Steffi has been training hard on the bike since mid December and in Valence tests herself against a field of male riders.

At the French pre-season special, she faces off with a strong lineup of riders including those from the Nestaan JM Racing KTM squad led by Joel Roelants, Yentel Martens and young talents like 125 European champion Jordi Tixier of France and Austrian Pascal Rauchenecker. Also in the field are other KTM riders like British rider Nathan Parker (PROPPA-COM KTM and French riders Loïc Leonce (B G R KTM) and Loïc Larrieu (WOLFF KTM). But these and other top riders hold no fear for Steffi who his very well known for her toughness, skill and courage when attacking any MX track.

Behind the scenes: Team USA for 2010 Motocross of Nations - together for the first time

I was back out at Pala Raceway for something very special. I had already been there for four days for the Finale of the 2010 AMA MX season and the Awards Banquet.

But, as I mentioned, this was something special - the first official get together of Team USA for the 2010 Motocross of Nations. Team Manager Roger De Coster, racers Ryan Dungey, Andrew Short, Trey Canard, and all the support staff needed for an effort like this.


Ryan Dungey, Roger De Coster, Trey Canard, Andrew Short and Mitch Payton

I felt very privileged to be invited to such an event. I soon came to realize that the most unique and moving part of the day was seeing the look of real happiness, the feeling of true honor, and the comraderie for each person involved, as 'The Team' came together for the first time. It was contagious. They seem to be a real 'team' already, working together well, and have great things to say about each other. Again, it was contagious!

Supercross 2011: Kyle Regal discusses move to L & M Racing Yamaha

Moving up from the Lites class to the full time 17 rounds in the premier 450 Supercross class is a big step for any racer. Making it a double whammy, Kyle Regal is also going from Privateer Status to a full Factory Sam Manuel L & M Yamaha ride.

Kyle rode a few 450 Supercross rounds last season, when he wasn?t racing in the Supercross East Coast Lites, but it was this summer Kyle really gained momentum on the 450, finishing ninth in the series final standings.

David Vuillemin Talks About Why He Left as Team Manager of MotoConcepts

David Vuillemin spoke with Supercross.com about why he left as team manager of the MotoConcepts supercross / motocross race team. Here's what DV had to say...

You recently left your position at MotoConcepts as the Team Manager, why did you make that decision?

I was ready to work with their "future rider" (Editor's note: We believe the rider is Mike Alessi) in our program and help him improve his supercross skills and become a top 5 contender again. We would budge on the brand of the bike (Suzuki) and some other wishes the rider wanted. But I still wanted to have some control and some say on the program to continue our good work we've been doing for a year. Everything was agreed around Pala National to go ahead and do the deal, but it didn't go thru after all. The rider and the family wanted way more control on everything. At that point, I told Mike Genova (Team Owner) if he wanted to give them all the control, I could not stay in the position just to wear a team shirt and watch someone else run the team. The deal was then off the table, and we started looking at other options by sending offers to a few other riders, but after the Monster Cup, Sunday night, Mike Genova decided to go back and give the rider and his family what they wanted.

R4TC: 2010 Ride for the Cure at Cahuilla Motocross Park

I haven't hit the track much in 2010, but knowing that the 4th Annual Motocross Ride for the Cure Event was coming, I dusted off the KTM, dropped it off at Malcolm Motorsports for some fine tuning, hit Milestone Motocross Track for a handful of warm ups and I was ready to enjoy the funnest event of the year hosted by motocross enthusiast herself, Laurie Carey, who is constantly raising the bar for fundraising, support, education and interaction for Breast Cancer Awareness!

The morning started off amazing, perfect day to moto! The sky's were bright blue and littered with dark fluffy rain clouds! Dropping rain in perfect track watering patterns, the day was in full swing and the pits were packed! Tons of Factory support lined up for the event, they even had a never ending Freestyle show in the works! Mike Metzger, the God Father of FMX was doing his thing and dozens of other talented riders busting out tricks for the fans.

I pretty much settled into a pack rat of MXGirls, WMA Pro Rider Elizabeth Bash, Race Techs Michelle Marshall, and Mission Motorsports Brooklyn McClendon. We had a blast mixing it up on the main and vet tracks, sporting our decorated "Ride for the Cure" Bra's and having a blast spinning laps, saving boobies!

In the end I was amazed at the growth this event has accumulated over the years, by far the most impressive outcome I've seen. I'm looking forward to next year's event, but more importantly, it's touching to see all the work Laurie Carey puts into the Support and Awareness of Breast Cancer.

RJ Says: Bercy Supercross

I have raced at the Bercy Supercross. In 1984, we actually raced it twice. The first race was right after the Daytona Supercross in March, and then we raced again at Bercy in December.

The very first year was cool. But the track was an unknown. When we (the top American Supercross racers) got there, we realized they (the organizers) didn't know fully how to put on a supercross. The track was so narrow, it was hard to pass, it was a 'European' supercross.

But also that first year, I realized how awesome a 'show' can be. Their show was awesome in Bercy! All of us were surprised at how great it was!

My very first thought though, the first time I got to Bercy: "Wow, this is a small track!" But I raced there again in 1985, 1986, 1987, 1988, and 1989. I've also gone another time after I retired from professional supercross and motocross racing.
