Inside Look: Motocross of Nations Prep With Team Honda

You're listening to: Team Honda Muscle Milk Team Manager, Dan Betley.

Mike Tomlin is Justin Barcia's mechanic, and has been burning the midnight oil prepping the bikes for the MXoN.

Justin will have a pair of bikes at his disposal. See the aluminum case behind the rear wheel? That houses a spare engine.

Even Team Managers need their photos. Dan gets his snaps in.

Yoshimura supplies the exhausts, and Think! has this ultra-light sound-deadening foam.

The GEICO Honda guys had just dropped off Eli Tomac's bikes and spares for shipping, and cracked open one of the cases so we could have a peek.

This crate is for spares only. The plastic-wrapped bags in the back are pairs of mufflers.

Team Honda Muscle Milk's Team Manager, Dan Betley has plenty of Motocross of Nations experience, and he gives us a tour of what it takes to prep the equipment for a road trip to Germany for the MXoN.
