Josh Grant rides to his second podium finish of the season.
Well the United States MX des Nations team was announced this weekend at the Thunder Valley National and it includes Ricky Carmichael, Kevin Windham and etnies’ Mike Brown. Congratulations, that’s a huge honor and we know you’ll make our country proud! Mike went 7-8 for seventh overall on Sunday, coming back from about a twelfth place start to finish seventh in the first moto and had a little banner trouble in the second moto for eighth. Mike is now second in points, only seven behind Ivan Tedesco for the lead.
Chad Reed wasn’t too happy with his 3-3 finish for third overall. “I don’t know what happened to me in the races today,” said Reed. “I didn’t show up.” Third place is pretty damn good for "not showing up" to the races. Check out the practice footy of Reed from TWMX.
Travis Preston went 7-7 for sixth overall, his best finish since the season opener at Hangtown where he got fourth. Travis now sits sixth in the championship points.
Josh Grant on the other hand was quite happy with his 4-5 finish for third overall, his second overall podium finish of the outdoor season. Josh is fourth in points, not too far behind Mike Alessi in third.
Roger on his way to a close win.
In AMA Supersport Roger Hayden took the win in Mid-Ohio, beating out his brother Tommy Hayden who finished second. Tommy was questionable going into the weekend if he would race after breaking his right hand two weeks ago at Laguna Seca. Tommy is 36 points in front of Roger for the championship, and with only two races to go in the season Tommy is likely to take his second consecutive Supersport title.
Jake Zemke also won last weekend in the Formula Xtreme race.
Nicky Hayden, who won the MotoGP two weeks ago at Laguna Seca, and Tommy and Roger will be appearing on The Tonight Show with Jay Leno on NBC, airing August 2, 2005.
Trigger Gumm will be making an appearance at Evel Knievel days in Butte Montana, July 28-30.
This is for my homies.
Twitch rode like a mad man last Thursday for the Red Bull X-Fighters event in Madrid, Spain and pulled off second place in front of the 23,000 fans in attendance and the many more watching live on the internet. Hell yeah, good job Twitch.
This weekend Cameron Steele and his off-road race team the Desert Assassins will be invading Las Vegas for the SCORE Las Vegas Terrible’s Cup race. This is a 1.5 mile, 8 lap short course race run multiple times over 2 days as opposed to the usual 500 or 1000 miles that they race down Baja. Cameron will be driving three different classes including the 800+hp Desert Assassins Trophy Truck and plans to smash into anyone in his way of the checkered flag. If your in Vegas check 'em out, they're staying at the Golden Nugget.
