USGP 2010: Townley Trucking

New Zealand's Ben Townley administered a serious beatdown on the MX1 class in the second moto, passing both Tony Cairoli and Mike Alessi early on the first lap and then running away to win by almost 8 seconds or so. "Uptown's" Troy Lee/Lucas Oil Honda was the only other make to take a moto win away from the otherwise dominant KTMs. GuyB got it.

USGP 2010: Return of the Ryno!

Yes indeed, that Ryno. Ryan Hughes came out of retirement to race against the best in the world in the MX1 (450cc) class! Hughes looked pretty fast and very fit. He finished 17th in moto 1 but only completed 3 laps in the second; not sure what happened there. GuyB pic.

USGP 2010: Magic Marvin

Gotta give GuyB props for this great shot, and of course, "Wow!" goes to the motocross magician, Marvin Musquin, rocking the #1 plate on a nearly-flat factory KTM.

United States Grand Prix 2010: Mighty Musquin

There was some hot racing at Glen Helen for the return of World Championship motocross to the United States. Defending MX2 (250cc) Champ Marvin Musquin (1) of France stormed off to dominating wins in both motos. GuyB captured the world's best over at Vital MX.

Hangtown Hookup: Eli Tomac Wins!

Wow, this is a big deal. Absolute rookie (as in first-ever AMA national, indoors or out) Eli Tomac raced GEICO Powersports Factory Connection Honda to 3-1 finishes to grab the overall victory at the opening round of the American motocross championship series. (Action photo by Marty Mosley)

Congratulations Eli! Don't forget to ask her out before you leave that podium!

Go in peace, good men: Danny "Magoo" Chandler and Andrew "Sharkey" McFarlane

Peace, young brothers in motocross. You will be missed by many.

Racerhead has more on the tragically short lives of these great racers.

Vegas Swoosh: The Champ Represents

Check it out: Supercross champ Ryan Dungey's marketing team has effectively sold the soles of his feet as promotional space. Ryan rocks his (as yet) unobtainable Nike boots at press day in Lost Wages.

Vegas Finale: Weimer wears the (w)One

Jake Weimer's Monster Energy/Pro Circuit Kawasaki KX250F caught sparkling in the Las Vegas pits, sporting the always-impressive numero uno (with a dash of regional seasoning).

Congratulations, Jake! And congrats to the whole Pro Circuit team for dominating 250cc supercross in 2010.

GuyB on the scene with great pics on Vital MX. Thanks Steve!
