The Tennessee Knockout is billed as the toughest extreme enduro race in America. For good reason. Riders manhandle their bikes up impossibly steep hills, through creeks and over logs and mossy boulders. All at breathtaking speeds. I was exhausted just watching.
Movistar Yamaha MotoGP rider Valentino Rosso sustained mild thoracic and abdominal trauma in a what a team press release calls “motocross training accident” in Italy, reports Roadracing World. Fortunately, no serious injuries or fractures were reported.
Just two weeks after winning his fourth Monster Energy Supercross 450SX title and four months after saying he didn’t know when his retirement would come, a dominant force in the sport, Ryan Dungey, said he won’t race professional Supercross or Motocross in 2018. Sounds like he knows now.
This past Saturday, a stunt, equally daring and stupid, happened over the 60 freeway in Riverside County. A dirt bike, possibly ridden by 24-year old motocross biker Kyle Katsandris, appears to have jumped over the four-lane Moreno Valley highway. The California Highway Patrol is taking steps to prevent anyone else…
Don’t wait until Sunday! Sunday! Sunday! to watch this epic retro highlight reel of monster trucks, insane dragsters, dirt bikes, chaos, destruction and all that is right with the world. It’s so rad that I just grew a Miami Vice ‘stache just thinking about it.
Wheaties cereal boxes have featured famous athletes since 1934, but never a motorcyclist—until now. 2015 Monster Energy Supercross Champion and KTM rider Ryan Dungey is the first rider on a Wheaties boxes, but hopefully not the last.
Last month, Red Bull inaugurated a new motocross course at Munich's Olympic Park. It features a superkicker, two quarterpipes, four regular ramps, and two gap jumps... all perched on top of a lake.
Step One: get a ramp. Step Two: do a sweet backflip off the ramp. Step Three: land in the pickup bed. Simple, right?
Silly Ivan Tedesco. If you want to ride on a motorcycle with your friend, you should ride on the seat, not with both of your legs jammed between the back tire and the exhaust and your head flailing about and OH MY GOD HOW ARE YOU STILL ALIVE.
Racing brawls are nothing new. You've seen fights break out between pit crews, you've you've seen Kyle Busch put people into the wall, we've even taught you how to win a good scrap. But this seemingly unprovoked cheap shot from Mike Alessi on Brock Tickle at the Atlanta Supercross race is just all kinds of stupid.
This dirtbiker was cruising along until he found a ram camped out in the middle of the track. The ram didn't appreciate the dirtbiker trying to pass by, so it ran at him a few times. "Yakety Sax" was also involved.
Look at this little guy! He's training for motocross, but he's so small he still needs training wheels.
This is what if feels like to go flying into the air off a motorcycle and crash head-on into the ground.
Brian Deegan has a kind-of passion for racing that seems downright bizarre after hearing a portion of his credentials for life-threatening experiences.
Motocrosser Chad Reed is a leader in the Lucus Oil AMA dirtbike racing series, and after watching him suffer a 30-foot fall off his bike only to rejoin the race, it's easy to see why.
Motocross champion-turned-reality star James "Bubba" Stewart was arrested in Orlando, Florida last night after he pulled over a car with his truck. The problem is Stewart isn't a police officer, but the two men in the car he stopped were.
Red Bull rider Dougie Lampkin, a 12-time world trials champion, jumps a spectator at last weekend's Goodwood Festival of Speed. Said spectator has balls — and Dougie is good. Photo Credit: Tom Leman/Flickr
