February 18th, 2009 · Comments Off on Cobra Motorcycles president Sean Hilier on Rush Limbaugh · Industry, Politics of Riding

Cobra Motorcycles president Sean Hilier was on the Rush Limbaugh program yesterday, to discuss the notorious Consumer Product Safety Improvement Act of 2008 (CPSIA) and its devastating effect on his company.

5-time Daytona SX by xxxx winner

January 30th, 2009 · Comments Off on 5-time Daytona SX by xxxx winner · Industry

Time for a rant. I fully grasp the need to placate sponsors. I know they pay the bills. I know that teams and events can’t survive without them. I know we love them. But please, can we stop rewriting history every time a title sponsor changes? Ricky Carmichael is not a 5-time winner of the […]

PitPass Radio discusses the state of the M/C industry

January 27th, 2009 · Comments Off on PitPass Radio discusses the state of the M/C industry · Industry

Tonight’s show on Pit Pass was good. Good interviews, especially if you’re interested in industry stuff like I am. Important note: The crew mentioned that their email has been broken and they were not aware of the problem. So they asked that any listener who has emailed the show and not received a response to […]

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 […]

Dave Despain loses it

January 21st, 2009 · Comments Off on Dave Despain loses it · Industry

Dave Despain is one of my favorite sportscasters. He’s sort of a “professor” of motorsports and covers a little bit of everything — even though everything these days is about 90% NASCAR. This little video has been around since 2006, but I just found it. It’s hilarious, and was no doubt quite cathartic for Dave. […]

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 […]

MX SPorts press conference Saturday

October 10th, 2008 · Comments Off on MX SPorts press conference Saturday · Events, Racing

In today’s Racerhead column Davey Combs announced a press conference to be held tomorrow morning at the MGM Grand Hotel. Coombs will announce some of MX Sports’ plans for the 2009 Pro MX season. There have been a lot of discomfiting rumors flying about. Many sound far-fetched, to me. But you never know. Hopefully we’ll […]
