Electric motocross is getting closer

It should be clear by the photo above that the good people at BRD really get that form is as important as function for people seriously considering the purchase of battery-powered dirtbikes.  The RedShift looks the part; see the rest at Vital MX.

What a day for James Stewart:  first in qualifying, first place in his heat, and first in the main event.  And what a day for his Joe Gibbs Racing/Toyota/Yamaha team mate Davi Millsaps, who rode strongly to second place, his best finish of the season.

The photo above was taken during practice; the track was even sloppier during the race.

Daytona Supercross: Dungey Sits Out

Photo by GuyB/Vital MX
Another injury, another blow to the Monster Energy Supercross Series.   KTM's Ryan Dungey crashed while practicing at his Florida training facility, breaking his collarbone BEFORE last week's St. Louis supercross.  That's right, Dungey raced to second in St. Louis WITH A BROKEN COLLARBONE.

He also celebrated his finish with that broken collarbone, as seen in the photo above.  Holy smokes, there is no better proof that the excitement that comes from doing well can override the pain of some injuries.

Actually, team manager Roger Decoster said they "... knew he was hurting but we did not realize his injury was that extensive. His gutsy performance in St. Louis and determination to keep racing despite his injury is a testament to his dedication to the team.”
