Here's a pretty lame but sadly funny joke I got told the other day..
Why did the chicken cross the motocross track...? To get to the roost!

And for the clip of the month..... ta daaaa! Robbie backflipping the London Bridge.

New Pages

I'm adding another maintenance video tip this month. This time I found a great video to show you how to properly clean and care for your air filter... Air Filter Cleaning.

Here are some highlights of what's been happening on my News Page...

  • Australian rider Cam Sinclair nailed the first-ever double backflip in a competition run, sending fans into a frenzy at the Red Bull X-Fighters in Fort Worth, Texas. Check out the pics!

  • The annual Ford Mammoth Mountain Motocross was held in early July in California. Take a look at the results.

  • Josh Grant takes out 1st place in the Monster Energy Motocross National at RedBud.

  • Take a look at the 2010 Monster Energy AMA Supercross (an FIM World Championship) schedule.

  • Robbie Maddison backflips over the London Tower Bridge.

  • Chad Reed and Ryan Dungey clean up at Washougal MX Park

  • Robbie Renner breaks his own previous world record on the Red Bull Highrise, with a massive 63 feet 5 inches above the ground!

Well, I hope you've had a chance to get out and about on your bike lately. Unfortunately my European travels have been cut short before I got a chance to go to any dirt bike events/shows. But the good thing is I'm back home in New Zealand, which means I'll be buying another bike soon. If you've followed my last few e-zines then you'd know how much I've missed been able to ride. So good times are coming! Remember if you have any pics of you and your mates, send 'em in to me on my Dirt Bike Pics Page. Till next month...
