Darryn Durham Injures Wrist at Supercross Test Track

Darryn Durham injures wrist at Kawasaki Test Track
Darryn Durham practicing at the Kawasaki test track on Friday.

Monster Energy/Pro Circuit/Kawasaki rider Darryn Durham sustained a wrist injury following a practice crash Friday at the Kawasaki test track. The newest Pro Circuit Race Team member was taken to the hospital immediately following the accident, where the doctor informed him he had a slight fracture of the wrist.

The Pennsylvania native had surgery that night to insert a screw in his wrist, which should help speed up the recovery process. Expected to be in a cast for four weeks, Durham is optimistic he will be ready in time for the start of the Monster Energy AMA Supercross season.

Once again, the month of July has been brutal for us, weather-wise? temperatures in the mid- to upper-90?s, with the heat index pushing us up into the 100?s and even 110?s for about the past three weeks.

2nd Annual DC Moto TF Ride Day and Invitational Poker Tournament

Supercross 2011 is right around the corner! So much is going on, both publicly, but also behind the scenes. One public and noteworthy item - DC Shoes has a new three year contract with Monster Energy Supercross!

I was invited to the 2nd Annual DC Moto TF Ride Day and Invitational Poker Tournament at Pala Raceway. It was a full day's 'work' for the DC Athletes; group photos, action shots, interviews, and lots of MX riding at Pala. And there was good game of Poker to raise money for Road 2 Recovery. The list of Athletes sponsored by the DC Shoes brand is a very impressive group making this Supercross assignment unique fun for me!

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.

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!

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.

2012 AMA Motocross Schedule released

Officially called the 2012 Lucas Oil AMA Pro MX Championship Series, the 2012 event schedule is out, courtesy MX Sports. Here is the official info below:

  • May 19 - Hangtown Motocross Classic* - Sacramento, Calif.
  • May 26 - Freestone Raceway* - Wortham, Texas
  • June 2 - Thunder Valley Motocross* - Lakewood, Colo.
  • June 9 - High Point Raceway - Mt. Morris, Pa.
  • June 16 - Budds Creek Motocross - Mechanicsville, Md.
  • July 7 - RedBud* - Buchanan, Mich.
  • July 14 - Spring Creek Motocross* - Millville, Minn.
  • July 21 - Washougal MX Park - Washougal, Wash.
  • August 11 - Moto-X 338* - Southwick, Mass.
  • August 18 - Unadilla - New Berlin, N.Y.
  • September 1 - Steel City Raceway* - Delmont, Pa.
  • September 8 - TBA* - Southern Calif.


Just weeks after celebrating the conclusion of an epic 40th season of professional motocross racing, MX Sports Pro Racing and partners, Alli Sports, are pleased to announce the 2012 schedule for the Lucas Oil AMA Pro Motocross Championship. The series will begin on Saturday, May 19, near Sacramento, Calif., at the Hangtown Classic, which is the longest-running event on the schedule. The series will conclude on September 8 in Southern California, at the championship's newest stop (to be announced at a later date).

Throughout the summer, the 12 round series will visit such highly regarded motocross circuits as High Point, in Pennsylvania, RedBud, in Michigan, Washougal, in Washington, and New York's legendary Unadilla.

"We are very fortunate to have so many great, iconic motocross tracks as part of the Lucas Oil AMA Pro Motocross Championship-tracks that challenge the racers and have strong, loyal fan bases that come out to see these races. This series is the pinnacle of professional motocross, and the growth we've seen in the last three years for both the live audiences and television viewers watching from all over the world has been outstanding" said MX Sports Pro Racing President Davey Coombs.

Not only does the Lucas Oil AMA Pro Motocross Championship include the best tracks in the sport, it also features the fastest riders on the planet, as well as an expanded television package with NBC Sports Group. Add in a global television package that allows fans from all over the world to tune in, plus live event streaming on allisports, and the result is an unprecedented audience for motocross racing.

Monster Energy Kawasaki's Ryan Villopoto will defend his #1 plate against no less than three former 450 Class Champions in 2012. Besides the man he wrestled the 2011 title from, Red Bull KTM's Ryan Dungey, as well as a hugely-popular Australian star in TwoTwo Motorsports' Chad Reed, Villopoto must also contend with James Stewart, who is returning to outdoor motocross for the first time since his perfect 2008 season as a member of the Joe Gibbs Racing/Toyota/Yamaha team. There will also be challenges from such formidable programs as Team Honda Muscle Milk, the Yoshimura Suzuki factory team, MotoConcepts/Alessi Racing, the new L & MC Racing Honda team spearheaded by legend Jeremy McGrath, and more.

In the 250 Class, newly-crowned champion, and Monster Energy/Pro Circuit/Kawasaki rider, Dean Wilson will not only have to defend his title against the best young riders in America, he will also be pursued by the two most recent MX2 World Champions. Frenchman Marvin Musquin and German sensation Ken Roczen have each earned Grand Prix titles on 250cc motorcycles, and will now join forces at Red Bull KTM to challenge Wilson for the most-coveted outdoor title in the sport, a Lucas Oil AMA Pro Motocross Championship. Add in the formidable GEICO Honda team, DNA Shred Stix/Star Racing Yamaha, Rockstar Energy Suzuki, JDR KTM, in addition to Troy Lee Designs/Lucas Oil Honda, and the 2012 season is ripe for exceptional competition.

Additionally, the Women's Motocross Championship will be included at eight rounds. Led by defending champion, Team Honda Muscle Milk's Ashley Fiolek, who claimed her third title in four years as a pro, the world's fastest women riders are set to bring even more excitement to the series. Fiolek can once again expect serious competition from her primary rival, and fellow multi-time champion, Jessica Patterson of the DNA Shred Stix/Star Racing Yamaha team.

Following the traditional opener at Hangtown, series favorites - Freestone, Thunder Valley, High Point, Budds Creek, RedBud, Spring Creek, Washougal, Southwick, Unadilla and Steel City - all return to compose the bulk of the 2012 schedule. While some venues' traditional dates on the calendar have shifted, they remain as part of the integral foundation of American Motocross.

The season finale will feature a new venue in the motocross hotbed of Southern California. Details and additional information will follow.

You might think 'How cool is it to be racing professional motocross all over the USA!' But it's a lot harder and a lot more work than you might think! Not all racers get the big bucks and the factory rides like James Stewart, Ryan Dungey, and Chad Reed. As a matter of fact, most of the woman racers in the USA have to work quite hard during the week just to make it to the race track!

MX Adventures: Leaving the West Coast ... talking with Kevin Windham

{jvideo id=259 height=378 width=660 autoPlay=0}

Who dat?

This week I caught up with Kevin Windham. In the video below, Kevin Windham talks about the Superbowl Champions, the NFL's New Orleans Saints, his family, his future plans for racing and beyond.

The Superbowl XLIV champions, the New Orleans Saints, have many fans - among them is none other than the number 14 in Supercross, Kevin Windham. While the NFL season started when Supercross was in its off season, Kevin was able to take part in season tickets to his favorite NFL team - da' Saints. Eventually the 2010 Supercross season got underway in January, which meant Kevin was flying off after those Saturday night Main Events back East to watch the New Orleans Saints Playoff games.

On February 7, 2010 the New Orleans Saints headed to the Superbowl in Miami, Florida and Kevin Windham and his wife Dottie made arrangements to attend this momentous occasion. First, however Kevin had to finish up a Supercross race in San Diego the night before.

RJ Says: Defending a Supercross Championship and season review

After watching the first three supercross races of the 2011 season, I'll share with you what I see at this point.

Two riders that have really impressed me so far are Ryan Villopoto and Trey Canard. Looking at their fitness, their riding technique, their ability to get thru traffic on the race track, both are far beyond what I thought they would be.

I knew Ryan would be fast. But when a rider has been away from racing for a while, as he has, sometimes it takes a while to knock off the rust. Ryan has looked great after his heat races - obviously the training with Aldon Baker has helped him a lot. I can see his fitness, how much he is sweating, and his ability to retain his breath and breathing after both his heats and main events. It's visible that Ryan has leaned down together with Aldon, and he's in awesome condition.

I thought it would take Trey Canard at least half a season in the premiere Supercross class to where he was really comfortable. As I watch Trey in these first three races, there are certain section of the different tracks where he is faster than either Villopoto or James Stewart. Once Trey puts together the whole track, and an entire 20 laps like that - look for him to win some races this year.

RJ Says: Supercross 2011

Rick Johnson is a seven time AMA Motocross and Supercross Champion. These are his thoughts on the upcoming 2011 AMA / FIM Supercross Series.

Depending on how healthy riders stay during the season, Supercross 2011 could be an incredibly awesome year.

Of course, we all say that every year, but this year could be something special - if most stay healthy.

As I go down a list of riders, my top pick is defending AMA Supercross Champion Ryan Dungey.

Do I think Ryan will dominate Supercross the way he did outdoor MX in 2010? No, but after watching Ryan over the past few years, and especially at the MX of Nations in Italy in 2009, I've seen his confidence go up and up. Each time out, he gets a little faster, a little stronger, and smarter.

The 2010 Lucas Oil AMA Pro Motocross Championship Season Celebration

This year's AMA Motocross Banquet & Season Celebration was held in a magnificent banquet room at the Pala Resort & Casino. The room was decorated beautifully, lined with motocross d�cor, as well as a stage decorated with the championship bikes and awards. The line-up of food, appetizers, desserts, and beverages was very elegant and delicious.

After dinner, the awards ceremony began. Jason Weigandt, along with Tim Cotter hosted the show. And of course Jason started it just like he does many of his shows - after slamming down an energy drink.

Jason went on to talk about each round of this summer's AMA Motocross Nationals, with a list of funny jokes pertaining to all the good and bad situations at each of the races. After that, the awards and trophies were handed out.

The night was filled with special memories, good times, and laughs. One poignant moment was when Kevin Windham accepted the award for 'Sportsperson of the Year'. Kevin always has a great way of expressing himself, but made a great comment towards his friend & the team manager, Mike LaRocco. He commented on Mike's motivation, that pushed Kevin to work hard and do his best ... it was touching, but at the same time very funny.

RJ Says: Give me a break in between supercross and motocross

Is the combined supercross / motocross season of today's era too long?

As a former supercross and motocross racer, I don't think the season is too long. Racers want to race.

But I would like to see a couple of changes that I think will make it better for the riders, teams, and most importantly, the fans.

First, I'd like to see a much longer break in between the end of the Supercross season, and the start of the MX season.

I think it would be great if the riders could have at least a couple off weekends off after the supercross season ends. One of the reasons is they could do more 'outdoor' testing at that time, instead of during supercross season.

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 ...

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.

DC Moto TF Day with Ryan Morais

Ryan Morais' goal for a 2010 West Coast Lites Supercross championship came to a screeching halt in just the 3rd round of the series, when another racer landed on the back on his bike, sending both riders crashing to the ground. This unfortunate crash would sideline Ryan for a few rounds, but he would eventually return to racing action in Seattle and finish the season 10th overall points. When the AMA Motocross Nationals came into around, Ryan was ready to get back to racing, but going into the second round he was once again out with an injury. Ryan has been busy the past few months, but is back and ready to set some new goals for the upcoming 2011 series. I spoke with Ryan about what he learned over the past year and his prospects for the new season.

Angela: Well Ryan, here we are just a few short weeks until the first Supercross race of the season; let's talk about sponsors and the bike?

Ryan: Yeah, DC Shoes stepped up recently and is sponsoring the entire Rockstar Energy Suzuki Team, so I am really excited to be a part of it. I have only been with this sponsor for a few days now and they're really taken care of the team. I'm with the same team as last year, Rockstar Energy Suzuki, with the same mechanic (Rene Zapata), and the same team manager, and owner, everything is pretty much the same, but Suzuki really is stepping up this year. Last year we were on a 2009 carburetor bike, so we were kind of behind the ball, but this year we are on the new 2011 fuel injected, the whole new chassis and everything, and Suzuki has really helped us out with factory support. Our bikes are pretty much in house bikes, running Shoei Suspension, so everything is looking great. Everyone has been doing a great job and the people at Yoshimura have been doing a lot of testing and getting our bikes dialed in, so I'm excited for Anaheim 1. Our bike should be one of the best ones out there, making things really competitive, and that is very cool.

RJ Says: 100% is Back!

100%? It is how I try to live my life.

In 1982, I got a phone call from a guy I knew at the races. His name was Drew Lien. The conversation went like this:

Drew: I dig your bull dog style and never give up attitude. I'm starting a company and would love to sponsor you. I can't pay you right now, but I will give you all the free product you can have.

Me: Whats it called?

Drew: 100%

Me: What will you sell?

Drew: Heat shields and numbers.

Me: I'm in...

A few months later, all the top racers ran 100%: Bailey, O'mara, Ward, Glover, Lechien, Kehoe, Holley, and the list goes on.

From that point on 100% has been my life motto. I am giving 100% in whatever I do. Truck racing, coaching, working or loving my family. Win or lose. Happy or sad.

If I am giving 100%, I can go to sleep KNOWING I have done my best.

Drew has past, but his dream lives on. He was a special person with a big dream. God Speed my friend.

HOW MUCH EFFORT DO YOU GIVE?

Ricky Johnson

The 2010 Lucas Oil AMA Pro Motocross Championship Season Celebration

This year's AMA Motocross Banquet & Season Celebration was held in a magnificent banquet room at the Pala Resort & Casino. The room was decorated beautifully, lined with motocross d�cor, as well as a stage decorated with the championship bikes and awards. The line-up of food, appetizers, desserts, and beverages was very elegant and delicious.

After dinner, the awards ceremony began. Jason Weigandt, along with Tim Cotter hosted the show. And of course Jason started it just like he does many of his shows - after slamming down an energy drink.

Jason went on to talk about each round of this summer's AMA Motocross Nationals, with a list of funny jokes pertaining to all the good and bad situations at each of the races. After that, the awards and trophies were handed out.

The night was filled with special memories, good times, and laughs. One poignant moment was when Kevin Windham accepted the award for 'Sportsperson of the Year'. Kevin always has a great way of expressing himself, but made a great comment towards his friend & the team manager, Mike LaRocco. He commented on Mike's motivation, that pushed Kevin to work hard and do his best ... it was touching, but at the same time very funny.

Marching towards Supercross 2012 - flashback to 2009 A2 Supercross

It was almost three years ago - the Anaheim 2 Supercross of the 2009 AMA Supercross Series. Remember who won? Hint - he won the 2007 AMA Supercross Championship, and would go on to win the 2009 AMA Supercross Series as well! And the guy that won the 250 West race? He would go on to win the 2009 AMA West Regional Supercross Championship, and the 2009 AMA MX Lites outdoor championship.

James Stewart wins Anaheim Supercross! Chad Reed takes over points lead! Ryan Dungey wins in 250 West Lites!

Rider Profiles on Supercross.com


Anaheim Supercross

1:45pm: It's a typical, warm, sunny 'winter' afternoon in southern California - above 80 degrees without a cloud in the sky. The action has already started for today's race, with practice going on right now. The track itself is a little bit dry right now in some places. 2008 AMA Eastern Regional Supercross Champion Trey Canard will not be racing tonight because of the lingering effects of a crash and concussion from last weekend's event in Phoenix. James Stewart, Josh Grant, and Chad Reed have the fastest practice times as of right now.

3:15pm: James Stewart crashes at the end of a practice session. Rumors abound the he has a broken wrist. We go over to the L & M Racing pit area, ask L & M staff members the status of James and his wrist, and everyone responds with either 'No comment' or 'We have no idea'. We'll know shortly about James and his wrist once the pits settle down ...

7:32pm: First 250 moto takes off for the night time program - it's Jake Weimer 19, followed by team-mate Ryan Morais 116 and Daniel Reardon. After six laps, and the checkered flag, its Weimer first, Morais second, Reardon third. Jason Lawrence finishes 11th after falling.

7:45pm: The second 250 West moto takes off ... and at the end of the first lap it's Ryan Sipes 31 on KTM with the lead! On the final lap, Dungey makes a move to get around Sipes - but Sipes takes the win, Dungey second, and Justin Brayton third.

7:59pm: The first 450 heat race takes off ... and it's Mike Alessi wit the holeshot! On the second corner, a right hander, Andrew Short passes Alessi for the lead. It's Short leading, Ryan Villopoto has moved into second, and defending Supercross Champion Chad Reed has moved into third! Alessi is fourth. Then, Reed moves past Villopoto into second on lap five! It's Short, Reed, Villopoto, .... and Alessi a ways back in fourth. Tight battle up front - Short leading, Reed right on his tail, and Villopoto just behind. After a tight right hander on the sixth lap, Reed edges past Short! At the end of eight laps, it's Reed, Short, and Villopoto third! Davi Millsaps works up to fourth, M. Alessi fifth.

8:13pm: James Stewart is racing! The holeshot for 450 heat 2 goes to ... Josh Grant 33! James Stewart is right behind in second! Right after the end of the first lap, Stewart edges past Grant and into the lead! Forget the potentially broken wrist! It's Stewart out front, Grant in second, Kevin Windham 14 in third. Stewart starting to pull out a comfortable lead over Grant, who in turn has a comfortable lead over Windham. At the end of the eight lap heat, it's James Stewart with the victory, Josh Grant finishes second, and Kevin Windham third. Tim Ferry is fourth.

8:28pm: 250 LCQ. Jason Lawrence with the holeshot! At the end of four laps, it's Lawrence with the win, followed by M Sleeter.

9:22pm: The 250 Western Division Supercross 15 lap main event takes off .... and it's Ryan Morais with the lead! At the end of lap two, it's Ryan Morias 116 leading, Ryan Dungey in second. On lap four, down the long main jump filled straight, Dungey goes past Morais and into the lead. Jake Weimer is a ways back in third. Daniel Reardon is fourth. After nine laps, it's Dungey leading, Morais second, Weimer third, and Jason Lawrence has moved up to fourth. At the finish, it's Dungey comfortably out front, Morais second, Weimer third, Lawrence fourth, Chris Blose fifth, Daniel Reardon sixth, and Justin Brayton seventh. Dungey takes the win, and stretches his points lead!

9:50pm: The 450 Supercross Main Event takes off, with Mike Alessi grabbing the lead! Chad Reed goes down in the first corner! At the end of two laps it's: Kevin Windham out front! Josh Grant is second, Ryan Villopoto is third, and James Stewart is fourth! Chad Reed is 13th.

The top three are very close - Windham, Grant, Villopoto, with Stewart just behind in fourth. Reedy is moving up, but still mired in 11th. Stewart is starting to close in on the leaders. Reed is now ninth. The top four (Windham, Grant, Villopoto, Stewart) are bunched together very close. On lap seven, Stewart edges past Villopoto, but the top four are still very close! Reed is in seventh as they complete lap seven. Windham stil holding the lead, but Grant is fending off Stewart, with Villopoto right behind both of them! On the inside of a tight right hander, Stewart squeezes inside of Villopoto! Then goes past Grant! It's now Windham out front, Grant second, Stewart third, Villopoto fourth, with Reed in seventh.

On lap ten, Stewart goes past Windham in a right hand corner for the lead! Stewart out front, Windham second, Villopoto third, and Grant a ways back in fourth. Reed is sixth.

Stewart makes a little bobble after a jump - the top three are still very close - Stewart, Windham, and Villopoto. Chad Reed is running the best lap times, up to fifth place.

Stewart starts to settle out front, Windham in second, Villopoto in third, closing on Windham! Grant is fourth, with Reedy right on his rear tire - five laps to go!

Stewart looks to be in control now, as Reed moves past Grant into fourth. It's Stewart, Windham, Villopoto right on his back, Reed in fourth, Grant in fifth. Reed can now see Villopoto's back - they are battling! On the 18th lap, Reed goes past Villopoto for third! Stewart out front, Windham a ways back in second, Reed is now third, Villopoto fourth, and Grant is fifth.

At the end of the 20 lap main event - James Stewart is the winner! On the last lap, Reed takes over second place from Windham with one corner to go! Reed finishes second behind Stewart. Third is Windham. Fourth is Villopoto, fifth is Josh Grant!

Conclusion: James Stewart is the winner of A2. Chad Reed might of had a season-saving strong ride, coming from a crash in the first corner all the way up to second. And Ryan Dungey looks good in the West Regional Series.

MX Adventures

A Supercross is usually filled with its share of dramatic moments. From the jump off the gate to those first turn pile ups, all the way to that finish and everything in between, the action at Supercross is always nonstop.

The 2010 Phoenix Supercross had more dramatic moments than your normal race. However it was in those days that followed that the drama grew with various opinions that were blasted across message boards and blogs. I certainly appreciated the hot topics brought to the surface by the many people who love the sport of Supercross. And like you I have my own thoughts on the James Stewart and Chad Reed 'incident' ...

It was just one year ago when a controversy made headlines with Jason Lawrence, Josh Hansen and Steve Boniface were 'fighting'.

The backlash for those guys were met by AMA officials. Last year the Rules stated that the following offense is subject to disciplinary action:

An attack on a Racing official and/or engaging in a fight. This includes any person who attacks or is involved in a fight anywhere on the premises prior to, during, or after an AMA Supercross meet. There will be no maximum fine or suspension period for this offense.

My point here is that Supercross is no stranger to its share of drama but in the aftermath of last year, and now Phoenix, what does it take to show some true sportsmanship and character in tough occupation?

James commented thru his blog initially. Info on Chad Reed came thru Kawasaki and Monster Energy Kawasaki Team Manager Mike Fisher stated that Chad would not return to racing until he is 100 percent. Chad is expected to miss a minimum of six weeks to heal his broken left hand. Six to seven weeks puts us near the Daytona Supercross and by then there will still be eight races left on the schedule.

RJ Says: Give me a break in between supercross and motocross

Is the combined supercross / motocross season of today's era too long?

As a former supercross and motocross racer, I don't think the season is too long. Racers want to race.

But I would like to see a couple of changes that I think will make it better for the riders, teams, and most importantly, the fans.

First, I'd like to see a much longer break in between the end of the Supercross season, and the start of the MX season.

I think it would be great if the riders could have at least a couple off weekends off after the supercross season ends. One of the reasons is they could do more 'outdoor' testing at that time, instead of during supercross season.

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)

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!


Josh Hill at the DC Moto TF Ride Day

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.

Lucas Oil AMA Pro Motocross Championship and NBC Sports Group announce new television distribution partnership for American MX

MX Sports Pro Racing and Alli Sports, a division of the NBC Sports Group have announced that NBC Sports and NBC Sports Network (renamed from VERSUS on Jan. 2) will be the new broadcast home for the 2012 Lucas Oil AMA Pro Motocross Championship. The broadcast partnership will feature three live hours on NBC Sports and 21 hours of race programming on the NBC Sports Network, with 11 hours live.

The 2012 AMA motocross season expects to continue the upward trend the series has experienced since MX Sports Pro Racing and Alli Sports became partners in 2009. Since that time, motocross has enjoyed unprecedented growth with fans, and has seen its television audience nearly quadruple in three years. This new partnership comes on the heels of a highly successful 2011 season that reached the largest overall motocross audience through television, digital and on-site viewers in the sport's 40-year history. In 2011 the series saw a 36 percent increase year-over-year in domestic television viewership, along with a 50 percent increase in overall website traffic.
