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.

Seeing photos of the 2005 MXdN (Ernee) brings back great memories. It was the second pro motocross race I'd ever been to (the first being the Lierop MXdN one year earlier), and it is still one of the ones I look back on with the fondest memories. It was insane - having 90% of the crowd on that one hillside made for an amazing atmosphere, everything was top notch.

Ricky Carmichael, Mike LaRocco and Tim Ferry were chosen to represent the USA in the Motocross des Nations 2002 when it was scheduled for Competition Park, but that race did not happen as we all know. And was moved to a later date in Spain.

So Glen Helen stepped up and held the World Cup of Motocross on short notice. And Tim Ferry, Kyle Lewis, and Sean Hamblin were Team USA on the day.

But enthusiasts and industry personnel in the USA wanted to go forward with an international event to be run on Sunday, September 29 at Glen Helen Raceway in California: The World Cup of Motocross.

Short notice to put together an event. But it happened! $100,000+ in prize money. Three motos, 20 minutes plus 2 laps each. No 125/250/500 requirements.

Chad Reed helped lead Australia to the win in the 2002 World Cup of Motocross. If there was an individual winner, Chad would be it. He raced a Yamaha 450 four-stroke. He won the first moto, was runner-up in the second moto, and won the finale. Michael Byrne and Chad’s cousin Craig Anderson rounded out the team.

USA took second with team riders Tim Ferry, Kyle Lewis, and Sean Hamblin. Third went to Canada, with the team of J. S. Roy, Blair Morgan, and Marco Dube.

Notes: Two best scores for each country in each moto were used in the scoring. Today was Sebastien Tortelli’s first ride in the USA on Suzuki. He fell in the first moto, and did not start in the other motos. Greg Albertyn came out of retirement to ride for South Africa.

Results:

1. Australia: 20 Points (Chad Reed, Craig Anderson, Michael Byrne)
2. USA: 24 Points (Kyle Lewis, Sean Hamblin, Tim Ferry)
3. Canada: 60 Points (J. S. Roy, Blair Morgan, Marco Dube)
4. South Africa: 64 Points (Grant Langston, Greg Albertyn, Kevin Mcgovern)
5. Japan: 67 Points (Akira Narita, Yoshitaka Atsuta, Kazuyoshi Idagiri)
6. England: (James Dobb, Neil Prince, Rob Herring)
7. Costa Rica: (Ernesto Fonseca, Adrian Robert, Cristian Leon)

Other teams competing were Argentina, Bolivia, Chile, the Czech Republic, Denmark, France, and New Zealand.

First moto: 1. Reed, 2. Ferry, 3. Dobb, 4. Hamblin, 5. Fonseca, 6. Langston, 7. Albertyn, 8. Anderson, 9. Byrne, 10. Morgan
Second moto: 1. Fonseca, 2. Reed, 3. Lewis, 4. Byrne, 5. Albertyn, 6. Hamblin, 7. Anderson, 8. Dobb, 9. Morgan, 10. Narita
Third moto: 1. Reed, 2. Langston, 3. Ferry, 4. Byrne, 5. Morgan, 6. Hamblin, 7. Narita, 8. King, 9. Atsuta, 10. Dube

Wasn't even a battle that day. Carmichael just played with Everts that day and took off with a few laps to go.

I remember him jumping the big table top and throwing a big fat whip on the first lap of practise while it took Everts(and the rest) a few laps before they even dared to jump that shit
