30th November 2010 - Issue #023

Hey. It's been a fun month of riding and dirt bike madness for me here in the land of the long white cloud. I hit Kimmy's Motox Park earlier in the month which made me realize how much I hate arm pump! And also spent some more time in the dunes honing in my sand skills.

I was planning on taking a whole lot of photos from the Auckland round of the Australasian Super-X but the sunshine and cold beer got the better of me and I didn't snap quite enough pics. I can tell you however that it was an awesome day of watching the pro's banging bars on a world class supercross track.

I think everyone was a little disappointed that Chad Reed couldn't race due to his sickness, and the kiwi supporters were definitely bummed that Ben Townley popped his hip out on the first race. I wonder if Ben uses the same healing remedies as Travis Pastrana in this Bucket of Ice clip? Classic.

New Pages

  • I've been a bit lazy on the site this month (the sun's been out so it's much more fun on the bike!) so the only new page I've added is .. Mixing Two Stroke Ratios which I think will be very handy for a lot of people who are somewhat confused about the whole process.

I don't know what I love most about this clip. The awesome photography or the sick scrubs..?! What do you reckon? Oklahoma Motocross 2010.
