Moto Source Monster Cup SX Party 2014

OK, so it's been a silly season to remember. But now the rumor mill is about to be silenced by actual racing at this Saturday's Monster Cup in Las Vegas.If you're looking for the best place to watch the race in Reno, the Moto Source party at Legends Grill is a safe bet -- get the details on the flyer below, which also links to the Moto Source Facebook page. If you're looking for the latest scoop on who's racing -- and what color bike they'll be riding -- this report from Racer X should bring you up to speed (for the moment -- things can change quickly in the days before this race!).It should be a very interesting evening. The only way it could get better is if RV hopped a last-minute plane from Europe to get in on the action. Wouldn't that be cool?    ...

Straight fast

In case you've not been paying attention the last 12 years, James Stewart is great at cornering. The speed he carries through turns is one of the primary reasons he's a multi-time champion. But guess what happens when you remove the corners from a supercross track? The man is still a machine. Speaking of machines, it was also pretty cool to see TP199 back in action, this time on a 500cc two-stroke monster. Got to love the sound from this clip. ...

MXdN recap

Sadly, the Motocross des Nations (I still refuse to call it Motocross of Nations) didn't go to the Americans this year, though the team of Ryan Dungey, Eli Tomac and Jeremy Martin put up a valiant fight in Latvia and salvaged a podium finish in the end.While it wasn't necessarily surprising that the French team took the win, the fact that it was only their second-ever win -- in an event that has been happening since 1947 -- is pretty astonishing. There have been numerous great French riders over the years, so it's hard to believe they've not taken the top spot more often.But in any case, Gautier Paulin and company clearly earned it this year. You can check out the highlights below. ...

Silly season 2014

By Clifton Kump  I cannot remember an off-season so rife with rumors, half-truths and rider/team changes as this one. It has been absolutely insane.  Let's go over some of the big moves. Troy Lee Designs Honda moving to KTM to become TLD/Red Bull/KTM The TLD team will campaign next season on the pumpkins. The team infrastructure will remain the same, but some riders will not return to the squad. As of today, it looks like Mookie Stewart is out of a job. I have also heard that TLD will be marketing a new Red Bull signature line of riding gear, much like the Lucas Oil Honda gear they had a few years back. Should be cool! Rockstar Husqvarna, formerly Rockstar KTMLook, I'm a Euro nerd and and get all worked up for anything from the Austria manufacturer. They have Kiska Design to thank for their new look over the last few years and next year's bikes will be no exception. The team's inner-workings will remain the same, but Zach Osborne and Martin Davalos will join the squad on 250s while Jason Anderson rides the four-piftay. ...
