FIM Speedway Grand Prix on HD Theater

October 20th, 2009 · Comments Off on FIM Speedway Grand Prix on HD Theater · Events, Racing, Reviews

Last night I had the chance to watch the Swedish FIM Speedway Grand Prix on HD Theatre. It was my first time to see a complete speedway event. What a cool race — the speed, color, action. A very action-packed format with lots of four-man, four-lap heat races, everybody full-on sideways, diving in and out. […]

FIM launches new website

February 18th, 2009 · Comments Off on FIM launches new website · Events, Industry, Racing

Federation Internationale de Motorcyclisme (FIM) has launched their new website. The old FIM site was rather poor. It was only useful for finding press releases, but it was not regularly updated. My expectations for the new site are low and I will probably still be disappointed. But it has video for highlights. That’s something…

Now you can add crappy content from MotocrossMX1.com to your Facebook page

January 22nd, 2009 · Comments Off on Now you can add crappy content from MotocrossMX1.com to your Facebook page · Racing

Youthstream announces that effective immediately all the users of MotoCrossMX1.com and SuperMotoS1.com can post the contents, including news and photos, to their Facebook friends. Woohoo. MotocrossMX1.com has some of the worst, most vapid motocross content on the planet. It’s a veritable black hole (and I don’t care what that moron John Wiley Price says, that’s […]

Part 3 of History of World Motocross Championship sucks

January 11th, 2009 · Comments Off on Part 3 of History of World Motocross Championship sucks · Racing, Vintage

This is pathetic. This History of World Motocross Championship series is a miserable excuse for a history of anything. I don’t know who runs MotoCrossMX1.com, but they should be ashamed to put anything like this up on the site. It’s an embarrassment.

History of the World Motocross Championship

December 24th, 2008 · Comments Off on History of the World Motocross Championship · Racing, Vintage

Motocross MX1 is publishing a short series of articles on the History of World Motocross Championship. Part 1 of the series is up now. Parts 2-4 will be published in the next few weeks. If they are as poor as Part 1 there isn’t much point in reading them. Not much history here — there […]

MediaZone closes Moto channel

October 29th, 2008 · Comments Off on MediaZone closes Moto channel · Events, Industry, Racing

Last week I got email notification that MediaZone is closing their Moto Channel. This is a big disappointment to me, as I just signed up for a 1-year subscription when I watched the MXdN on live video. MediaZone will refund my subscription fee on a pro-rated basis, but the money isn’t really the problem. I’m […]

The Battle for world domination: FIM vs. DMG

August 8th, 2008 · Comments Off on The Battle for world domination: FIM vs. DMG · Politics of Riding, Racing

Two things of note this past week in the world of motocross (three, I guess, but I’m not all that interested in who hired Chad Reed — it was obvious someone would) – Youthstream opens U.S. office in southern California, and CycleNews publishes an interview with FIM president Vito Ippolito confirming the FIM’s intentions to […]
