editor’s letter

“FASHIONS FADE, STYLE IS ETERNAL.” —YVES SAINT LAURENT I found an old box of photos recently and spent several hours reminiscing about my early days of motocross. One of the things I have always tried to do throughout my career is remember how it felt to be consumed by the sport as a new rider and not become jaded by the 24/7 access we have to the stars, bikes, and cool products as editors of a motocross magazine. This photo in particular reminded me of how enamored I was with the style of one of my childhood heroes—Jeff Ward—at the time, and it also made me wonder if kids these days go to such lengths to emulate their idols. The year was 1988, and my Suzuki RM250 was the second bike I…

JASON ANDERSON At 24 years old, Jason Anderson has stepped into a role as one of the premier riders in motocross. It’s taken some time, maybe longer than some had hoped or expected, but a quick scan of anything related to the sport will include some mention of the young and personable rider. Shots of him in action are plastered at convenience stores around the country with Rockstar Energy’s branding campaign, his loose riding style is always included in promotional videos for the top championships in the United States, and he’s the global face of Husqvarna’s motocross program. To think that this is the same rider who was benched by the team early in his professional career is somewhat amazing, but for Anderson and his supporters, it’s simply a realization of…

twmx race series racer of the month

Hunter Daly is a familiar face at the TWMX Race Series, as she is a regular competitor aboard her KTM 125 SX. An all-around athlete, Hunter was on her high school cross-country, basketball, and softball teams, and also likes to snowboard and wakeboard. Motocross, however, is her number-one passion, as she’s been racing since she was only six. “It’s something that my family has always done together, and I have the most fun on a bike. Motocross is challenging and there is always room to improve, and that’s what I love most about it,” Daly said. Truth be told, Hunter is quite speedy and puts the hurt on many of her male competitors on a regular basis. We asked her what her goals in racing were, considering that the WMX National…

Scott Spark 700 Tuned Price: $6399 Frame: Carbon fiber Fork: Fox 34 Float Factory with 130mm travel Shock: Fox Nude EVOL, Lockout Remote with 120mm travel Drivetrain: SRAM X01-GX Eagle 1x12 Wheelsize: 27.5 inches Seatpost: Fox Transfer Dropper Tires: Maxxis Rekon Kevlar 2.8 inches scott-sports.com When it comes time to selecting a mountain bike to cross train on, motocross racers are faced with a tough decision between a bike that will be efficient for training and one that is capable of getting rowdy on the way back down the mountain. In most cases, a purpose-built cross-country bike will climb efficiently with little to no pedal bobbing but offers limited to no suspension travel. This can make things sketchy at higher speeds. Trail bikes, meanwhile, will gobble up the downhills but are heavier and tougher to climb on. Enter the Scott Spark…

product report

FOX VUE GOGGLE Price: $119.95 What It Is Developed in close conjunction with Team Honda HRC’s Ken Roczen, the all-new Fox Vue Goggle features a pre-curved, injection-molded polycarbonate lens for superior impact and penetration resistance, and an innovative frame and strap design that makes for easy and quick lens changes. The wide frame is designed to offer excellent peripheral vision and has a dual compound construction with a TPS faceplate to conform to your face shape, and an ABS/nylon outer frame to support the lens and create a positive seal. The goggle is designed to sit closer to the rider’s face, thus reducing distractions from the sides of the frame and sitting deeper inside the helmet. The 45mm-wide strap attaches to the frame via outriggers that are removed from the frame by pivoting…

beating the clock the right lines for the best times w/ matt bisceglia

Whether it be rhythm lanes, whoop sections, corners, or even straightaways, there’s always going to be a line that yields the fastest lap time. For the average weekend motocross racer, most of the fast lines are pretty well spelled out. This is because most public tracks aren’t too technical, but on occasion there may be a section that offers multiple variations for navigating it. Each of these lines will result in a different time. Motocross racing itself is a game of time in order to be the first to the checkered flag. Racing against other competitors is only part of the equation, as speed comes down to being efficient with lap times. That raises the question, which line will result in the shortest lap time? With so many variables involved, there…
