Oakland happens

Round 4 and its already crunch time for the Lites class. Since they run half as many rounds as the 450 class there are fewer chances to make up points. When a ballet dancer makes a mistake, they can end up on the ground. So too, the ballet on dirt riders often end up on the ground. Dean Wilson took... Sign in to see full entry.

Supercross # 3, Dodger Stadium, LA

The track layout utilized a crossover that made the most of the playing field which meant lots of tight 180⁰ turns. James Stewart took a fall earlier on in practice. That fall would probably have put you and me in the hospital but James jumped back up like nothing much had happened, which is what a... Sign in to see full entry.

Phoenix, out of the flames

Round two in Arizona was a study in luck. We learned that a lot of the teams weren’t too happy with the Anaheim track since it didn’t match the track map teams were given in advance. Teams with lots of money take those maps and try to duplicate the track on their test facility, in essence allowing... Sign in to see full entry.

2012 Supercross season underway

An Anaheim track that seemed to catch everyone by surprise provided an extra element for the teams.

When does it all begin?

The desire to ride can be read by the expression on my son's face. He is always happy when he rides. I am somewhat fearful, I know the fun can turn sour at any minute and I might end up hurt. My son on his first bike, a Honda 50 that he had to share with his brother. We would ride the trails, one on... Sign in to see full entry.

A documentary for racers – Senna

Ayrton Senna, rising star in Formula 1 in the era of Alain Prost is little known outside of his native Brazil. This film chronicles his rise from the ranks of go-karts to the top of the heap in F1. But it wasn’t always smooth sailing. He was controversial and it is a little odd to see Jackie... Sign in to see full entry.

An inside view

It is almost surreal at the racetrack. We are together as a family, but one of us will undertake a most dangerous mission. One of us will mount a powerful, 230 pound dirt bike and attempt to ride it as fast as he can over jumps, around corners, pass competitors all on a surface that changes from lap...

F1 in Abu Dhabi

KERS, DRS, SEB, what do they all mean? The first two are technical items on the cars, the third is one nickname for Sebastian Vettel. The youngster tied Nigel Mansell’s record for pole positions in a season and looked to be a shoe-in for another easy win. Lady luck might have smiled on him during... Sign in to see full entry.
