May 30th, 2009 · 2 Comments · Racing, Two-Stroke

Is this a prelude to putting the 2-stroke back into the MX Nationals in 2010? The announcement at Racer X is the latest in a string of small things that all add up to growing momentum for a 2-stroke resurgence on the Pro scene. It’s just my speculation at this point, but MX Sports has […]

Custom two-stroke crotch rocket by Roland Sands

December 11th, 2008 · 1 Comment · Two-Stroke

Check out this cool custom by Roland Sands Design. Sure looks like a two-stroke motocrosser with road race trimmings, to me.
