The first round of the Amp’d Mobile World Supercross GP last Saturday night was one to remember. The top three contenders, Bubba, Carmichael, and Chad Reed were all on hand to see where they stand and work out the bugs for the AMA rounds, which start in January with Anaheim 1. Our boy Reed was on pace as far as some of his lap times, but he couldn’t quite put it together like he would have hoped. With some bike problems to work out Chad just didn’t quite feel at his best. But that’s what these Canadian rounds were for, right? To work out the bugs and come out swinging come Anaheim 1, seeing as the Amp’d Mobile AMA Supercross Series Championship is the ultimate goal.
The Amsoil Chaparral Honda team, which has some new sponsors, is now the Sobe Samsung Amsoil Factory Connection Honda team (that's a mouth full). etnies is still proudly on board with the team for ’06 and pumped to let every one know that the team kicked ass over the weekend in Toronto! Billy Laninovich was on the podium followed by a new face to the team, Jake Weimer, in fourth in the Supercross Lites class.
Congrats to all. More after next week's race in Vancouver.
