Seen he posted a pic of him on his 250 and it says "had fun getting my race bike ready for Saturday". Need more top guys to do this!

I think the #1 is from the Two Stroke World Championship in 2016? Not sure.

I don't think that bike is Homologated to race even if he wanted to. Wasn't there some type of Drama about Malcolm and an RM250 not being able to ride practice or something on it?

Yeah I think anything older than 5 years is not allowed to race a pro MX or SX event. Which is kind of crazy , as some guys can make them better than what they were when they rolled off the show room floor.

And there goes Jeffro. One of God's own prototypes. A super high-powered mutant of some kind never even considered for mass production. Too weird to live, and too rare to die.

I think this weekend's 2-stroke race is an MTA race and NOT part of that 125 series that ran last weekend at Hangtown. With that said, any chance we see Malcolm show up....since he is in CA and was just riding that RM yesterday with Swap????

Hey guys....is the Mammoth mountain 2 stroke race part of this event as well. Asking if there are a few rounds , kind of like what the 125 class is doing , but just their own thing ?

And there goes Jeffro. One of God's own prototypes. A super high-powered mutant of some kind never even considered for mass production. Too weird to live, and too rare to die.

I saw MIke's posts about riding the 2 Stroke "this saturday" according to him but I didn't know what race he meant.

So what is the race? I realize it's not one of the 3 rounds of the FMF 125 Dream Race deal. Quick google search looks like MTA 2 Stroke World Championships were just held last month at Glen Helen but there's nothing online about a race this weekend.

its an invitational race just like the 125's. word was they guys doing the 125's wanted glen helen in on it also but they used the mta race as a gauge of what turnout would be. they only had a handful of guys sign up for the MTA and didnt want to risk having a half empty gate.

I don't think that Malcolm has scored a second place yet this year, but maybe he could behind Mike at this race. Would probably be good for his confidence, and he might learn a few things as long as he could keep Mike in sight. :-)

I don't know but he was out here at 6:15 hucking the front triples for press day along with a bunch of other guys. What time do you have to get up to do that? What time do you have to start gearing up? WAY to early! The worst part of racing Mammoth is the 4AM wake up call, glad I'm spectating today

I believe he's Monster Energy Kawi 450 for Canada.

Maybe his contract doesn't allow anything down here?
