Okay, the last post looked funny 'cause I called it "The Future", but it featured a photo gallery from the past. I was referring to the fact that Racer X Online has completely revamped their site and now include easily linkable galleries featuring captions... something GuyB at VitalMX has been doing for a while now, I should add. But I think it's great that Racer X is stepping up it's online game even more, and they are the undisputed leader of online videos and race coverage in the U.S.
Anyway... in this post, The Future I am referring to involves a young man from the crazy state of Virginia (I can say that 'cause I know the place), Zach Osborne, who has landed a factory Yamaha ride to contest the World Championship in the 250 class, or what they like to call MX2. In this story from Cycle News Online, Osborne is joining the British Utag Yamaha.com team. Um, okay, guess I'll have to find out what the heck Utag is; unfortunately Cycle News didn't say. News, ladies and gentlemen, it's in the name.
ANYWAY, big huge props to Zach Osborne for landing a dream ride at the young age of 18, and for having the guts to take a different path by seeking the World Championship instead of the U.S. title. I wish him the best and look forward to following his progress in 2009.
