Reply to Yeah I’m a JS fan so what 6/24/2021 2:28 PM

Thanks Lenny, the moment the AMA let WADA suspend him, I shut off the SX series for the rest of the year I was so pissed. All I can say is I was lucky enough to see him win at Freestone, before the Colorado photog incident took him down again. Man, was ... more »

BL, can you refresh my memory of what Big James said regarding why JS7 hung up the boots? Maybe I'm the one that has taken too many hits to the head

Bummed he retired, but after watching that video, I’m so glad he retired…….legend.

You'll love the Moto Masters Vet Series, I guarantee it! Been in the 50+, 55+ and now going into the 60+ class, and the boys you'll race with are awesome guys. I rode 3 Palms for the first time last weekend, and I have to admit, the main track, GP track, ... more »

See? How hard was that? UpTiTe just won the MX Journalist Pulitzer Award for 2021! This is how you put this crap to bed! Sincerely, Thank you, UpTiTe, I've been wondering how this all has played out, and you've mentioned before about the checks stopping ... more »

I don't know why, but I'm just mad right now after watching that, then learning the poor guy passed away. Prayers for his wife and kids, that just sucks so bad. I have to believe something went wrong either mechanically or weather / wind wise, because ... more »

How does this guy Stralo, with a 2:15.3 in 450 Group B quali 2 not make the show? He should be 31st fastest qualifier on combined page.

LOL, I still use it to this day! I grew up in Lakewood / Bellflower area!

Reply to Track toolbox ? 6/3/2021 7:20 AM

For decades I have a red plastic toolbox with top tray, about 11” by 24” by maybe 10” tall, big enough for everything I need on race day including wrenches, socket set, screw drivers, Allen wrenches, spoke wrench, tire gauge, hammer, mud scrapers, pliers, ... more »

Reply to Why do riders Sandbag C class? 6/3/2021 7:11 AM

I like the way they do it at some So Cal races either a true beginner class. Back in the ‘80s we managed it pretty easily by having a point system to move riders through the classes. Beginner was for riders who have only been racing for 1 year (managed ... more »

Reply to Help with goggle/breathing issue? 5/28/2021 3:47 AM

I have the EXACT same problem, and have tried dozens of different goggles, most of which end up in the kids' gearbags because I can't stand the nose pinch and obstructed breathing. The absolute best goggles i have ever used for this, and please don't ... more »

Reply to I Need a History Lesson (Arroyo Cyclepark/ Glen Helen) 5/26/2021 12:25 PM

Cycle News West archives should have a ton of old race reports, results, ads, etc. from the Arroya days (back in the '70s).

Reply to New bike tomorrow.. 350 or 450 4/30/2021 7:15 PM

I think that’s a great choice, personally. I’m 60 this year and have zero issues racing a CRF450R. As others have said, you control the bike. Enjoy the new ride!!!

Reply to WD40 for chain lube 4/22/2021 8:35 AM

Back in the late '70s or early '80s, we did a study at Dirt Bike Magazine and found that a chain with WD-40 on it actually ran hotter than just a dry chain with no lube. Interesting stuff. But as many others have already said, I use WD-40 after a wash, ... more »
