Gotta think that Shimoda, Mosiman, or Nichols could also win an overall before this Series ends.

Those 85’s had some teething problems that you needed a good shop to work out. I remember MXA said something like “it vibrates like a washing machine with bad bearings and handles like a three wheeled shopping cart “ LOL. I loved the twin shock 83 and ... more »

Reply to Jalek Swoll O/A at High Point? That's kinda HUGE! 6/21/2021 11:21 AM

No, I phrased it poorly. I’m wondering if being in the spotlight as the sole Team Husky 450 rider will do positive things for him. By team adjustments I was thinking they might have a bigger pool of people helping with his program.

Big win for Team Husky, especially after losing Anderson and Osbourne to injury so early in the season. I’m shocked by Swoll’s win. Putting two motos together like that on a such a demanding track is badass! It will be great to see how his race craft ... more »

Great picture of the 1972 start! From the Motocross Vault: "In 1971, promotor Bill France added a motocross-style race to his “Daytona Motorcycle Classics” (now known as Daytona Bike Week) week of festivities for the first time. While not an ... more »

I like watching Jeremy Hand in the 250 east. He gets faster each race and gave Shimoda a good challenge for part of the race Tuesday

He was a beast. Incredible rider.

Reply to DeCoster Question for the Old Timers 3/3/2020 7:04 PM

I assume of all the hundreds of races DeCoster competed in, that has to be the one he regrets. Must have been an epic day for the fans otherwise. Jim Pomeroy became the first American to win a moto at the 500cc USGP Carlsbad, California. Pomeroy did

If you look at DeCoster’s riding and results in 1976 you see the top MX racer in the world at that moment. He won the 500cc World Championship, the Motocross and Trophee Des Nations, and the Trans AMA title. He was up against some very fast Americans

Reply to Who invented skimming through the whoops? 3/3/2020 4:54 AM

I seem to remember the two guys who got the most attention for perfecting the technique of skimming the whoops were Kieth Bowen and Ron Lechien. Both Yamaha riders at the time. 1983-1984 period.
