MADDO AND I SAT DOWN AND TALKED ABOUT WHAT THE HELL A FAST FOOD MEAL HAS TO DO WITH AN FMX ATHLETE LAST MONTH I was given the opportunity to interview FMX legend Robbie Maddison at an Oporto restaurant. I know it seems strange to pick a Portuguese chicken burger outlet as an interview spot but I didn’t make the decision.Maddo has partnered with Oporto to promote their new range of spicy food and, no, I’m not talking about the Portuguese rats found in a now infamous Sydney store.The content campaign, called Feed Your Adventure, draws parallels between Maddo’s incredible ability to perform death-defying stunts with Oporto’s ambitious plans to open a bunch of new stores before July and implement a revamped dine-in experience with a bunch of…

italy disqualified in mxon debacle!

1. Antonio Cairoli will not be amused 2. FIM officials send the petrol samples off for a lengthy sniffing THE FIM HAS disqualified Italy from the Motocross of Nations after it was discovered that Michele Cervellin’s machine was using illegal fuel. A sample taken by the FIM at Redbud from Cervellin’s Yamaha revealed an undisclosed inconsistency during laboratory tests. According to FIM rules: “In all cases, a rider whose fuel fails to meet technical requirements will be disqualified from the event.” But it’s worse at the MXoN as, at that meeting, if one rider’s machine doesn’t pass the fuel test, the whole team is disqualified. With Italy finishing second there’s been a big shift in the overall point scores, but also within every race in which…

A TRAILBIKE RIDER has had a lucky escape after being ripped off his bike by high-tensile wire strung across a fireroad.

I rode out of the gate and 20 metres down the track, that’s when I hit the wire.“I was only riding slowly because I was checking the fence but it felt like an invisible force just pulled me off the bike by the neck. It was a massive shock when I hit the ground and then…

TODD WATERS HAS returned to Australia after his stint racing for Honda in MXGP to contest the MX Nationals with DPH Husqvarna.The 28-year-old was planning to switch to AMA Pro Motocross but things didn’t work out.“My intention for the past one and a half years has been to get myself to the AMA outdoor championship,” he said.At the end of the world championship season, Waters set about lining up a ride in the States. “I was set on racing with Honda, using their bikes in the AMA as a privateer.

mv holds out

MOTORCYCLING VICTORIA CONTINUES to delay signing the Alliance Agreement six months after the rest of Australia’s State Controlling Bodies did the deed with the aim of improving motorcycling right across the country.MV declined to sign last August pending legal advice and is still seeking clarification from the national controlling body. “Victoria fully supports the concept of an alliance; we are always going to be stronger as a group than on our own,” Motorcycling Victoria CEO Robert Mestrom said.Mestrom said MV had five key concerns about the Alliance Agreement and, until these were addressed, it would be business as usual for them. MV’s concerns are: 1. The Alliance does not have an exit mechanism for SCBs if they determine it is not in the interests of their members (or…
