CYCLE USA, August 2012

From the Back of the Pack By Mike Quinn, D23 Chairman Our season is half over and it seems as though it just started. The pro motocross has already come and gone. The weather has been hot and hotter with very few mud events. Our participation numbers are slowly increasing. Our membership numbers are up just a bit another good sign for the health of our sport. The week I spent preparing for the pro mx race was as always hectic, extremely busy and as always well worth it. The amount of work that goes into an event that big is mind boggling. The television crews laid miles of cable to their cameras which took several days. Vendors start moving in and setting up as early as Tuesday. Schaefer brothers spent a full week working on the track. John Martin and his crew worked for a full two weeks to have the track and all signage ready for the big event. Promoting two amateur races with a pro national in between is a tremendous amount of work. Thanks to all of the staff that spent so many hours to bring this event to Minnesota and our district. The memorial race for the late Donny Schmit is one of the highlights of my year. I was lucky to meet John Dowd and spend some time speaking with him. He holds the record for the oldest racer to qualify for a pro national and also score points. 46 years young and he is still beating many kids. He is definitely the Nolan Ryan of Motocross. He did say he has more fun helping his son than racing himself. I found him to be a really nice and down to earth. District business at the last meeting was pretty sedate. We discussed some scoring issues in the Hare Scrambles and Enduro disciplines. The upshot of the discussion was to go the AMA rulebook. All off-road riders need to be aware of their responsibility in assuring they are scored

Announcements, personal stuff, and.... properly. Mistakes happen with the scoring, but they also occur because we sign up for the wrong class, or our writing can’t be read. The rule book states that there is a 30 minute protest period, during this time a protest may be made and the racer needs to check the scoring to be sure it is accurate. If mistakes are not fixed within the allotted protest period they cannot be changed. Racers make sure you are scored properly before you leave the event. For all of you that have a road bike, set aside Saturday September 22nd for our first Ride for Rights. Look for more on this ride on the internet and flyers we will have in many shops in the near future. All the proceeds will go to our legislative fund. We have our own lobbyist for all motorcycle issues, and we are seeking new ways to raise funds for this necessary expense. Lets hope this streak of ultra hot weather relents soon so we can get back racing and riding in comfort. In the meantime keep training, keep riding and racing as often as possible, the season is moving fast. I hope to see you all on the tracks, trails and roads of Minnesota. Mike Forest City Riders Enduro Canceled. The club is sorry to announce that we will not be holding an enduro this fall. The event will now become a Dual Sport event on the same date. There are many reasons for the enduro being canceled, the main reason is land use. We don't have enough land to piece together a quality enduro this year. Last year we had many struggles to put together a quality enduro and if you rode it you know we went from having a 30 mile loop with maybe a couple miles of road to a loop with a lot of road and a lot of field sections. So we have decided to cancel the enduro this year and hope we can put something together for next year. We will have a Dual Sport that weekend instead as we still have enough short woods sections to put on a fun event, just not a quality enduro.

Rain Doesn’t Stop Echo Valley Brookston, MN - June 24 By Samantha Laderer & Kristen Ty Hanson

T

hey say reality is where you are supposed to feel real, well this is our reality. Riders from all over Minnesota and Wisconsin, even including a few from Canada traveled to this race. Echo Valley has been on the D23 circuit and running races for fourteen plus years. They host several races each summer along with a regular schedule of practices. The track itself is a little over a mile long and consists of all the must haves for a motocross track; from whoops to a ninety foot table top, to uphill doubles and nice long holeshot stretch. The track is set on forty rolling acres with a great view, and plenty of parking along with camping spots. Although the northern part of Minnesota was flooded due to heavy rains, this didn’t stop Teri Lund, owner of Echo Valley, from hosting another race. Lund and her truly amazing track workers spent many hours just to get the track prepped and ready to ride on Sunday. Though the track was slightly slick for the morning, it didn’t stop riders from getting out there for some

good old racing. By midmorning, the sun had decided to come out which helped the track to dry up just enough. Connor Ahlers, a very frequent rider at Echo Valley, took charge on his KTM in the 125 2stroke class, finishing with a good lead on Aaron Lindell in both motos. “First moto the track was wet and a little mushy in spots, but other than that it was good. Second moto the track was perfect which made for an easy, and really fun race,” claims Ahlers. Though both motos held the same results, it was almost as if they raced a different track because of how much the weather conditions had changed. Tommy Coon made his way through the pack in 14-24B after battling with his good friend Jacob Holm and Tim Rasmusson during both motos. The three kept trading positions before the finish. The battles continued in each lap as they nicely took turns in first place throughout both motos. Though Coon took first overall, Rasmusson got his first win of the season during the second moto. “It is always a blast out there battling with my friends, it’s like a non-stop laughter because of how much fun we are having,” says Holm. Casey Hultgren also led a lap on

Connor Ahlers out front in the 125 2-stroke.

his KX450F during the first moto, but collided with Coon in one of the corners. In the end it was an excellent race with plenty of entertainment for the crowd. New this year, the track started a Northern Series that consists of five races, which are also district races. They will be hosting a banquet at the end of the season with many prizes and awards. A brand new Yamaha dirt bike will be given away at the final race. “I would like to thank all of the riders for coming out to ride, and thanks to my crew for all their hard work to get the track in order,” Lund proudly stated after the weekend was over. “No matter the condition, this is motocross.” Results: 250A: 1.Eric Kowalik 2.Connor Ahlers 3.Chas Kadlec 250B: 1.Boden Smetana 2.Kory Buckman 3.Jacob Blanshaw 250C: 1.Stephen Morgan 2.

More Excitement at Sunset Ridge Walnut, Illinois- June 24 By Missi Thede

A

beautiful, sunny Sunday at Sunset Ridge helped deliver a great race event for everyone. Many took advantage of the new shelter next to concessions to break away from the sun and were still able to view the excitement of the races. In the Open C class, the nineteen rider gate was filled with anxious riders ready to get their race on. As the gate dropped the riders all stayed together until right at the holeshot corner, with all holding their breath on who would make it through the tight pack. #127 Jake Peterson made it through first with Jon Adkisson and Brian Haines right with him. The rest of the pack wasn’t far behind. and only a few riders fell victim to the corner. Peterson kept his lead as Adkisson had Cody Johnson to contend with. Adkisson gained on Peterson for some side by side action over the jumps as Robert Wehn drew closer. With persistence Wehn closed in and passed both Peterson and Adkisson, leaving them to battle for the second. Adkisson pulled away from Peterson before the finish line rollers and continued to stretch his lead as he had his mind set on Wehn who then had a setback which handed the lead to Adkisson for the finish

with Peterson in second and Michael Prince third. Wehn settled for the fourth. The second moto had Haines leading with Eran Salzmann in second and Wehn third. Wehn made his way to second. Salzmann then had the pressure of Johnson to contend with as Wehn made his way past Haines for the lead. Adkisson worked his way up into the third, and Johnson into fourth where they finished. Overall for the day was Adkisson, Wehn, Peterson and Salzmann. In the Quad C race, Tyler Stenzel took the lead and overall win for the day as Aaron Huffman and Tanner Vaickus fought it out for the second. Second moto started with Stenzel in the lead, and Steven Bickett in second, trying to close in on Stenzel with Huffman running third. Vaickus had his contention with Trent Ladas - the group was feeling the pressure all around them, having no room for error. Vaickus made it past Huffman for the third and Kelton Zeman and Huffman battled between fourth Drew Yenerich took the overall wins in 250A and Open A.

and fifth. Ending the second moto was Stenzel, Bickett, Vaickus, Zeman and Huffman. Overall for the day went to Stenzel. With the fourteen rider gate of the Quad A class, eyes were on #313 Zach Harris as he was back in Illinois on his Honda after racing for CR21 in Iowa on a Can-Am, with great results. With all the riders staying consistently in a line all the way up to the corner it was crunch time with a very sketchy inside turn which almost ended up disastrous for Harris on the way inside, but he pulled through with the holeshot and nothing but an explosive pack of A riders right behind him. Jason Wehrli was second ahead of Cody Suggs, Jacob Howald and Devin Krontz. Harris stretched his lead. A broken chain ended Wehrli’s day as Suggs moved into second with Howald third and Dillan Boeke in fourth. With the second moto Harris again pulled the holeshot. Ethan Pickard made it through for second with Krontz third and Brian Kinczfogel in fourth. Kinczfogel made his way past Krontz as further battles went on between Boeke and Howald. With the last lap approaching, Suggs passed Howald and Boeke worked his way past Howald. Harris took the win with Pickard in second and Kinczfogel third. Overall for the day was Harris, Suggs and Kinczfogel. Other exciting races for the day included the +30A class with Greg Braet taking the overall win for the day with Ryan Tracy and Chad Rogers switching spots for second and third, with Rogers second overall. The 250C gate held thirty-two riders with an amazing first through fourth locked in spots for the overall wins. First overall was Corey Matthews just edging out Jake Carlson,


Brian Haines and Jon Adkisson. It was the “three C’s” that topped off the 50Jr class with Deegan Cooley taking the overall win (1-2) ahead of Colson Crouch (3-1) and Jackson Colgan third (2-3). As always, Sunset Ridge put on a spectacular race day with great people, and most of all a great racing atmosphere!

Lange sweeps Azzie ST Lake Mills, Wisconsin - July 21 By Dave Hollub

T

he torrential rains on Thursday put the Aztalan Short Track crew into high gear getting the track ready for today. As usual they came out and saw to it that the surface was ready. Once the quads were done setting the lines the track surface got that black sheen and we were set to see some great racing. The heat races were exciting to watch and put everyone in the stands on notice that we were in for a real show tonight. When 50cc Four Stroke hit the track Trevor Infalt jumped to a quick lead with Molly Lundin close behind. Sutton Skodras got past Lundin on lap one in turn four and began chasing after Infalt. By the time the white flag flew it looked like Skodras was ready to move in on Infalt. The two were bar to bar down the back straight and as they came into turn three, Infalt on the inside, forcing Skodras outside where she just couldn’t hold the momentum to take the win away. Lundin held on in third with Ezra Brusky right behind. Mike Yogerst barely edged out Chuck Dickenson and Al Sumner at the +50 start. On lap two Yogerst was able to pull away enough to get some breathing room. Sumner was poking his wheel in on Dickenson every chance he could get until he was able to push through and take away the second spot. Dickenson finished the race in third after holding off a hard charge by Kurt Seeman. Patrick Ryder was a bit anxious in the +30 class, and jumped the light forcing him back into the third row for the start. Once everyone was set again John Stewart launched off the line with Jim Kirschbaum and Daniel Vrana less than half a bike back. Kirschbaum wasn’t going to wait for an opening and pushed ahead of Stewart down the back 10

straight and then on the next lap Vrana slipped by also. Vrana challenged Kirschbaum in every corner for the next few laps. As the white flag came out Vrana made a final charge and thanks to picking the right line around a lapper, he was able to take the win. Ty Marshall was out front in

50cc Shaft but Sutton Skodras powered down the back straight to take over the lead. Now Marshall was in a battle with Adam Marsch but by the end of lap two Marsch was running second. Marsch twisted his throttle to the stop and passed Skodras in the front straight. Skodras stayed on Marsch’s rear tire to the finish. Riley Busse fought his way through the pack from a seventh

“I had a pretty good race. I got second off the holeshot behind Brady. On lap three in corner three and four I forgot to downshift and then braked way to hard so I slid out. I was lucky to stay in second. Thank you to Fuel Cafe Racing, my Mom and Dad, The Shop, Motoscoot, and Ride for sponsoring me.” Lange’s next race was in 85cc and once again he got out front right away to cruise to the checkers. Brooke Chromy was second and Mason Barth rounded off the top three. Lange after this race, “I usually am able to win in 65cc and the race went really good. I got the holeshot but my buddy Loyal was right behind me in second. He was riding really good tonight and hung in there. I didn’t do to good in my 85 heat race so I talked to my buddy Dan Vrana and he told me to just get the holeshot and run the inside. I Adam Bushman (19L) took the Open Pro win. did that and won. The track was pretty rough in the corners, but it seemed pretty smooth and Jordan Carroll. Infalt had down the straights. My brother the edge from the start but Caralso just won the 250 class, that roll was there in every corner is his first time doing that. I want pushing hard. With two laps to to thank my sponsors: Moose go Carroll took advantage of a Racing, Events Landspeed, Milslight bobble to move up . Infalt lenium Technologies, Autoworks quickly recovered and in the final Unlimited, TJ Schlosser, and my lap they were side by side. Infalt whole family.” had the inside and going into turn Sherman Lackey was the three regained the position to leader off the line in Quad B. edge out Carroll at the checkers. Adam Smedbron was close beLoyal Prach later told me, place start to finish in fourth right behind Marshall. Brady Lange started out his night in 65cc and when the light turned green he jumped out front and never looked back. Loyal Prach ran second all race as Devin Massie chased him from third. The battle for fourth went all race between Trevor Infalt

Cameron Emerich leads 50cc shaft off the start


It was a great night for the racers and hind and immediately went to work looking spectators to take in some of the fastest short for an opening to move out front. To start lap track racing in the district. Ed Smulders as two Smedbron was out front. Ken Remer was usual served up food at the trackside food running fourth and holding off challenges shack that goes beyond anything you will find from Paul Klus. By the end of lap four Smedin many restaurants. If you haven’t made it bron had opened a gap on as Lackey was busy out for a night of short track, as a racer or batting with Marshall. By the time the white spectator be sure to put the next event on your flag came out Marshall was in second with calendar. Remer right behind him. Lackey had slipped back into fifth. After taking the win Smedbron said, “This is only my second time racing on dirt, the first time was on the 1/2 mile. We decided to come over from ice and decided to give dirt a try so here we are. I didn’t get the holeshot, I think I was back in third. I just stuck that outside curve and hung with it and was able to make my way to the lead down the back straight. The track was nice and tacky for my setup. Matt Bignells does my motor work and he really helps. Thanks also to MotoWoz Suspensions, Saratoga Cranberries, and Ken Remer finished third in Quad B. my girlfriend.”

Koch, Rath rule Cambridge Cambridge, MN - June 24 By Tim McBride

T

he opening round of the AMA District 23 flat track season got underway through the efforts of the Boehlke family. Kurt Boehlke and his two daughters, Bayley and Shelby Lyn, played host, and the Norseman MC club grounds in Cambridge provided the venue. AMA Grand National #68 Josh Koch supplied the entertainment by topping both Pro divisions on a sunny afternoon in northern Minnesota. Koch piloted his Jeff’s SOS/ General Engineering/ Last Minute Boyz Honda CRF450 to commanding victories in the 450 Pro and Open Pro main events. During the 450 Pro main event Koch was chased closely by M3 Racing’s Mac McGrew during the opening laps before breaking away. He then cruised to victory ahead of McGrew, Cale Langland, Cole Fealy, Andrew Hook and the rest. The Open Pro class had a rough start when McGrew crashed in the first turn while collecting Wisconsin’s Kevin Walter. Both riders restarted from the back row and while Koch bolted into the lead. McGrew powered his way from last to fourth via a daring outside pass through the right hand hairpin of the TT style race track. Koch was out front and defending his lead from Langland and Fealy until the hard charging McGrew slid past

Fisher, Miller triple at Spring Creek Millville, Minnesota - July 1 By Rolfe Otterness

G

age Fisher and Henry Miller both pulled off the neat trick of three overall wins in one day at the latest version of the Spring Creek Motocross Super Series, round six. Young Fisher is becoming one of the top threats in his classes every time he pulls up to the line in the mini classes. He won every moto in three of his classes, and took two second place finishes in a fourth class. Henry Miller has shown over the past few years that he is always strong on the Millville track. This day he showed he is one of the strongest contenders in the B class with 14-24, 250 and Open classes all falling under his control. There was some great action in other classes too, with about 450 entries for the day. The track was in excellent condition. The Mini 85 12-15 class featured a nice holeshot in moto one as Nick Schnagl lunged to the front of the class. He maintained his lead for over a lap with Ben Adamson and Blaze Best were on his trail. Adamson made his bid for the lead and Schnagl was left to fend off Best’s attack until Best took a tumble, allowing Alan Spaeth into third. Adamson had a good lead over the rest of the pack at the end. Schnagl, Spaeth, Best and Alex Ingalls cruised in behind him. Best jumped out to lead early in moto two but Adamson was too fleet for him and went to first. Schnagl came up to challenge Best and managed to make a pass early in the race. From there on out the top five positions were set and Adamson ran in strongly for the win over Schnagl, Best, Spaeth and Ingalls. Iowa’s Chase Stevenson proved to be the top dog in the Schoolboy class. In moto one he jumped out to an early lead leaving a tussle over second, featuring Kyle Lawler and Blaze Best, behind him. Lawler broke free of Best about mid-moto and Best had pressure from Sam Kemp and Jordan Schiller as the

Best was challenged by Lawler again, but held on for second, pulling away a bit at the end of the moto. Kemp and Schiller once again finished top-five. The +30A class had Adam Johnson holeshotting, but Bruce Gates quickly pounced for the lead. Tim Zebro displaced Johnson for second and then Johnson had pressure from Brent Mason. Gates went on to take the win over Zebro with Mason third but under the gun from Mike Luoma. Johnson rounded out the top five. Shayann Wilson leads the Women’s class in turn one.

Perfect weekend at Riverside Winterset, Iowa - June 2-3 By Missi Thede

N

o one could have asked for a better weekend at Riverside Raceway! The track was ready to go and everyone was eager for the beautiful weekend weather and racing to begin. Saturday’s first race had the twenty-two rider 250C class gate of riders rounding the corner with Derrek Rogers taking the holeshot. Rogers kept a good lead going into the second lap with Dillon Nail and Lukas Vopnford keeping it all green in the top three. Vopnford moved into second, and Zachary Harris was next to slide by Nail for third. The second moto had Vopnford opening with the lead with Noah Castor, Drew Peterson and Nail running tight for positioning. Nail moved past Castor as Peterson was set back to seventh. John Harter was running hard in fourth, feeling the pressure from Stone Schildroth. Vopnford finished first with Nail second and Schildroth getting past Harter for the third place. Overall for the day was Vopnford, Nail and Harris. Quad C action then took off the gate with Josh Beukema taking the holeshot with Ethan Dalton leading Travis Brandt in third before the first jump. Cole Borowiak moved into third. Beukema kept a healthy lead as Borowiak challenged Dalton for second, and edged him through the whoops section as Lucas Dalton worked his way up to fourth, to compete with his brother. The action continued in the second moto with Borowiak in the lead with Lucas Dalton in second, and Brandt third. Lucas Dalton assumed the first spot as Beukema tried to make his pass on Brandt. Beukema finally got his opportunity and now had his eyes set

on Dalton in first. Ethan Dalton had his battle to gain on Brandt. Feeling the pressure, Beukema put too much throttle into the jump before the finish line and went nose up and off his quad - amazingly he bounced right up and got back on and finished in third after Ethan Dalton moved into second. Overall finishes went to Beukema, Lucas Dalton, Ethan Dalton and Borowiak. In the 85Jr class 17 riders shot off the gate with Dylan Smith taking the holeshot. Chase Cooper and Nebraska’s Nicholas Maret followed. Maret took the lead and hammered the throttle to leave the competition to Cooper and Smith who maintained their positioning. In the second moto Maret opened the lead with Smith in second. Malio McCaleb was third

with Jake Dakovich in pursuit. With the last lap, Dakovich was able to pull it off and assume the third place finish. Second moto finishes were Maret, Smith and Dakovich putting the overall for the day as Maret, Smith and Tristan Bell. In the Open C class mass mayhem arrived on the start with an out of control bike, and five riders going down on the start. With two out of the five not going back out, the lucky survivors made their way through the first lap with Blake Lura in the lead. Stone Schildroth was second, just ahead of Noah Castor. Late in the moto, Schildroth moved his way into the lead over Lura and took home the first moto win. In the second moto Lura took the lead with Schildroth on his back, Krista Knupp third and Castor fourth. Overall for Open C was Lura, Schildroth and Knupp.

Gitter grabs Hixton wins Hixton, Wisconsin - June 24 By Rose Dorcey

T

hough the hill at CMJ Raceway got rougher as the day wore on, it didn’t stop Jared Gitter from winning three classes and setting the fastest time of the day. It was a tale of two hills, in that the bottom was all about timing the jumps, and then finessing through the bumps at the top, in addition to finding a smooth line up the 280foot hill. Lines that worked in the first round deteriorated by the second. By the halfway mark, it seemed to some as if there weren’t any lines that worked at all. But Jared Gitter was determined to ride a line that many riders did not take, the same line right up the middle, he said, that he used in 2011 to set the fastest time of the day. His 2012 wins weren’t without a bit of misfortune; the hill’s timer failed on Gitter’s 450 class first round ride. On his re-ride, he felt he had a better time at 7.585, and it held through both rounds of competition to win the class. Gitter beat out twenty-three other riders for the win, including AMA Amateur National 450 class Champ Jacob Prebe, who finished second at 7.633. Gitter, of Winona, Minnesota, took the same line later in the 600 class, but noted that

Zach Degross put in some fast rides.

CYCLE USA, August 2012

his favored route had become noticeably rougher. However, his first round time of 7.502 held on to win the class, followed closely by Steve Cain at 7.600. Good back and forth racing took place in the Open class, where Gitter did more of the same, lined up in the middle and then set a 7.572. It looked like his time would hold until Zachary Degross set a 7.439 in round two. “I knew I had to make a perfect ride up the middle to beat it, and that’s just what I did, winning the class with a 7.391 and once again setting fast time of the day,” Gitter explained. “It was some great racing and afterward Zach came over, shook my hand, and congratulated me. I appreciate the good sportsmanship shown, and it makes racing that much more fun.” Eric Wheelwright comes to Hixton from Illinois, and is always a threat on this technical hill. He proved it again by taking the top hardware in two classes. Wheelwright was the first rider of the day - and the only rider in the 200 class to set a sub-eight second ride. His first round time of 7.971 beat out the fifteen other riders in his class. The closest anyone came to catching him was Jacob Prebe with a respectable 8.329.

Hangtime’s Mini Mayhem Akron, Indiana - July 15 By Becky Stichter

A

Mini Mayhem event was held Sunday at Hangtime. This was the first time that Read's Racing Unlimited has offered this. The spotlight was on the smaller bikes and quads, with the first place winners taking home a four foot trophy. The 65cc (7-9) and (10-11) riders were the first minis on the track, in a combined gate drop. Dalton Edmondson was the only (10-11) rider, but had some good competition with the (7-9) riders. In the (7-9) class, Colton Camp, Kennan Leis, and Brogan Strubberg had a great battle. In the first moto, Leis was out of the gates first, followed closely by Strubberg and Camp. Leis went down in a corner so several riders zipped past him. Camp found an opportunity to grab the lead, but had to ride hard because Strubberg was pressuring hard from

fastest, followed by Strubberg and Camp. Strubberg passed Leis in the first lap. Leis pressured Strubberg most of the race, then had some difficulties, and fell back. Strubberg took another win, followed by Camp. In 50cc Open, Gavin George ran 1-1, followed by Aidan Patton. There were some newer riders on the track today, like Morgan Kotinek. Today’s race was only the third race that Kotinek has done. It's a big track for the little bikes, but they all did a great job. Kraye Loft, Nick Raseta, and Christian Gallagher fought it out in the Supermini class. In the first moto, Raseta was a tire length ahead of Loft coming out of the start. Loft later passed Raseta in the first lap as Gallagher and Lake Sabatini were coming up fast behind the leaders. Loft had a solid ride, and crossed the checkered line first. Raseta kept his second place position, followed by Gallagher. In the second moto Loft was out of the gates first. Raseta got around Loft, and was the first to come out of the train track sec-

tion. Next in line were Loft, GalLoft lagher, and Sabatini. opened his throttle up and worked his way back around Raseta for the eventual win. Behind the two leaders, the riders were mixing it up. Konner Graddy picked up his pace and worked past the others, to finish third, followed by Gallagher. Drake Edwards and Jordanne Stichter, of the Mini Quad class had some good battles today. In both motos Edwards was out of the gates first. Stichter was close behind and pressuring hard. Both motos Stichter waited patiently to find the right moment to strike, and was able to get past Edwards to win both motos. Bodie Derrer finished 1-1, ahead of his younger brother, Kaden Derrer, in the Mini Quad Jr. class. In the 50cc (7-8) class, Colton Camp, Gavin George, and Aidan Patton battled it out. George took the lead in the first moto, with Patton and Camp coming up fast from behind. George was able to hold the other riders off, and crossed the check-

ered line first. In the second moto, it started to rain a little, but the track held up. Camp pulled ahead of the others this time and was able to take a win, followed by George and Patton. The 85cc (12-15) and (9-11) riders, and the Girls class had a combined gate drop. The second moto was a disaster for these riders! It had started to rain in the race just before their second moto, then began pouring as moto two started. With the track being so hard packed, the rain made it horribly slick. Most of the riders struggled to finish the moto, with many riders going down several times. In the first moto, Justin Stichter of the (911) class took the overall holeshot. Coming out of the last turn before the 110 jump, Stichter's back tire slid out causing him to lose control and go down. Trevor Lomperski

moved in to first place, followed by Brogan Strubberg. Lomperski had a fairly comfortable lead late in the moto, and took the win. Stichter was working his way up and Strubberg could hear him coming. Strubberg pulled his throttle back hard, but Stichter passed him at the last minute. Trevor Lomperski took another win in the second moto... on a track getting messy from the increasing rain. There was a good battle in the Girls class between Ashley Eubanks, Madison Johnson, and Kristin Henson. Henson took the early lead and was able to hold off the other riders. Eubanks moved into second position, followed by Johnson. Madison Johnson took a win in the Girls’ second moto. These riders struggled so much, and the rain kept falling. In the (12-15) class, Kraye Loft was out

of the gates first, followed by Isaiah Shelton and Nick Raseta. Shelton opened up the throttle and passed Loft. Loft was putting a lot of pressure on Shelton, but Shelton wasn't letting up. Then, Shelton over-jumped the step-up, and took a hard fall. Loft was right there to take the lead and win. After a hard battle against the messy track, Kraye Loft took another win in moto two, just before the day’s racing was called to an end. The 65cc (7-11) class only got to run one moto because of the rain. Kennan Leis and Dalton Edmondson had a good run, with Leis pulling ahead to take a win. Edmondson finished second, followed by Schyler Altherr. Even though it was the Mini Mayhem day, the big bikes ran too. Some highlights were: Hunter Ridenour ran 1-1 against Mike Bekel in the Quad A class. Jacob Depung was a double winner, running 1-1 in the Schoolboy 2 and 250C classes. Michael Rice of the +30B/C class took the overall win, finishing 2-1.

Kerber, Kelly dominate Pleasure Riders Cayuga, Indiana - July 1 By Dave Henry Photos by Phyllis Blume More photos at www.phyllisblume.com

Jason Gepford swept both motos in 85Jr.

M

other Nature proved once again that you can’t fool with her, as after several days in a row of blazing sun and near triple digit temperatures at Pleasure Riders, she decided out of nowhere to dump about an inch and a half of rain between Friday night and Sunday morning. All of this was long overdue and would have been very welcome, but the track crew had been up until midnight Friday night watering the track to make for great conditions come Saturday. You combine 20,000 gallons of water with an inch of rain overnight, and guess what?... You have a mud race in the middle of a drought! The day started off with the 125 class, and that mud didn’t slow Honda mounted Chance Trigalet. He pulled the holeshot in the first moto and led wire to wire. Coming home with a solid second was Paxton Kerber. In moto two we saw the Decal Works backed Yamaha of Trey Walters pull the holeshot and hold on to the lead for about a half a lap before getting passed by both Trigalet and Kerber. Kerber held on to the lead for a couple laps, but with two to go, Trigalet made his move and never looked back. Trigalet went on to score the overall with a perfect 1-1 on the day. Second went to Kerber with a and third overall to Walters with a 3-3. That second in the first set of moto’s for the weekend was the only time the rest of the

#39 Trey Walters leads #114 Chance Tigalet early in the 125cc class.

weekend that Paxton Kerber wouldn’t win. Kerber went on to win two more classes on Saturday with perfect sweeps and follow that up on Sunday with four more overalls. Overall, it was a very impressive race weekend for Halls Husky mounted Paxton Kerber. Another Husky rider that had a great weekend was Don Large in the +45 class, taking a solid second overall after winning both

motos in the +50 class. Coming to Pleasure Riders to take advantage of the District 17 bonus points, and heat and humidity as he prepares for his trip to Loretta Lynn’s was Honda mounted Justin Kelly. Kelly dominated Open A, 250A and +25 on Sunday, sweeping all six motos. Other great performances over the weekend belonged to Honda mounted Dakota Blakeney, taking wins in 250B and Open B on both Saturday and Sunday with sweeps in all eight motos. Robert Moody on his Yamaha was also on the gas all weekend taking four moto wins in the +30B/C class, taking the win both days over Jason Gerling. Great results could be found in the Mini classes as well. Jacob McGee on his Kawasaki was impressive in the 65Sr class, taking home wins on both Saturday and Sunday. On Sunday, 85Jr rider Jason Gepford put in a nice 1-1 performance as he prepared for his upcoming battles at Loretta Lynn’s. In 85Sr and Supermini, Yamaha mounted Jacob Lancaster took home the wins in dominating fashion. After the mud on Saturday and the beginning of Sunday’s practice, the track worked up nicely with several lines developing. The racing was great both days. Pleasure Riders will be back in action with a special three day weekend event coming


up on Friday Night August 10th at the 8th annual Georgetown Fair Motocross, and Saturday and Sunday, August 11th and 12th at the club track just a few miles away. Sunday August 12th will be round 2 of the Illini Super Series and feature Kawasaki and Yamaha contingency, along with 150% payout to 250A and Open A.

Jackson tops at Rock River Polo, Illinois - June 17 By Bud Northrup Photos by Kirk Hollowell

J

unior Jackson is one of those rare individuals who can do just about anything on a motorcycle. He is very rarely seen at a hillclimb, but he showed up for the Rock River Riders event on June 17 and was simply unbeatable, winning all three classes he entered, and setting not only the fastest time of the day, but the top five fast times. Jackson’s fastest time was delivered in the +40 class where his first round time was second only to his 5.842 second run in the second round for the class win and overall fast time award. Wade Schultz was second with Mark Kirking third. In the 600cc four stroke class, Jackson’s first round time would also have been the winner in the class, but he delivered an even faster 5.911 second time on his second run, with Bobby Senn second and Kurt Krohmer third. Jackson’s third win came in the 450cc class where he had to come from behind. His first round had him behind Matt Altfillisch (6.304) and Lance Notter (6.305) at intermission. In second round action Cody Jenner posted a 6.232 second run to momentarily

take the lead, but Jackson flew over top in 6.052 seconds to claim the win. Altfillisch improved on his first time with a 6.292 second run, for third. Amber Fraedrich and Jeff Jack were double class winners. Fraedrich’s first win came in the Women’s class with a 8.376 second ride in the second round, following a crash at 258 feet on her first ride. Emily Schultz rode 220 feet for second place with Stacey Morris third. Amber returned in the 125cc class, and took that win with an 8.330 second time on her first ride. Chad Cox was second, crashing at 240 feet. Jeff Jack rode unopposed in the 200cc class but topped the hill on both attempts for the win. He had to work in the +50 class, and claimed that win with a 7.158 second time. Mike Bacon followed in 7.322 seconds. In Youth racing, Zackery Johnson was the 50cc class winner with Easton Morgan second, Gage Stear was the 65cc class winner with Derick Bell second, Andrew Fortner was the 85Jr class winner with Stear second and Jacob Bell was the best in 85Sr (Also youth fast time winner) with Dakota beard second. Bell’s 8.370 second time was also good for the Youth Fast Time award. Results on page 27 CYCLE USA, August 2012

Forkner, Fisher rule at Regional Millville, Minnesota - June 16-17 By Rolfe Otterness

top five circulated at a rapid pace but they ended up strung out a bit at the flag. Tucker Maxwell apparently was getting used to the track and jumped out to an early lead in the next moto with Samuel Redman initially holding second. Cartwright and Kost were running strong and dropped Redman to fourth about halfway into the moto. Robin circulated the track at a very slow pace with a fouling plug, out of contention. Maxwell held on for a nice win while Cartwright wrapped up the overall with a second place finish. Kost led Redman across the line to take third and Miller took fifth. Robin managed to get 28th which was enough for eighth overall so he could qualify for the final in Tennessee. One class big enough for two divisions was 85 12-14 Mod. The aforementioned Mr. Forkner took the win in division one with

issouri’s Austin Forkner and Iowan Gage Fisher proved to be the most competitive riders as Spring Creek Park hosted the North Central Youth Regional, the last step on the way to the Loretta Lynn’s National Amateur Championship. Hundreds of riders were on hand to try to make the cutoff to the championship. Forkner and Fisher were able to each top the field in two classes, making them likely candidates for good finishes in the heat of Tennessee. Forkner took charge in the Mini Sr. 12-14 Modified and Super Mini 1 classes. He also placed well in Mini Sr. 12-14 Stock but Joey Crown took the overall there. Fisher put his track experience to use as he grabbed overalls in 65 10-11 Stk and 65 7-11 Mod. Minnesota riders took home gold in a couple of classes with Noah Nathe on top in 51 4-6 Stk, James Clough winning 51 4-6 AMA 1 and Toni Jahnz acing the Girls 9-11 class. Riders were lucky to have good track conditions both Saturday and Sunday as the threatening rain showers mostly stayed brief enough to barely wet the surface. The three moto format was used with some classes big enough to require two divisions for the first motos. Kirsten Raemisch was a dominant presence in the Women’s class. Schoolboy 1 was one of the most hotly contested divisions Joey Crown in second and Haydn Humphrey with the riders on 125 two strokes. Josh third. Division two was snapped up by AshMiller gated perfectly to pull the holeshot as ton Hayes followed by Scott Meshey and the pack hit the track in moto one. Local rider Hunter Sayles.

Forkner went on for the win with Meshey settling for second. Hayes moved up to third by the end of the moto with Markolf fourth over Hunter Braun. Hunter Rhodes settled into the lead early in moto one of the 65cc 7-11 Mod class. Izaih Clark and Eddie Norred jumped in behind him and they set up a three-way battle for a couple of laps. Norred tried a pass on Rhodes for the lead and endoed big time going downslope at the bottom of the pro hill. Rhodes went on to lead Clark in for the win. Landon Rapp took third and Gage Fisher moved up steadily for fourth. Taylor Grall led briefly in the second moto but Fisher led by the end of the first lap. Fisher started to build a lead while a scuffle broke out over second with Josh Boaz and Rhodes as featured riders. At the checkered Fisher held on for a solid win with Boaz holding on to second despite pressure from Rhodes, who stalled out his bike on the last lap. Cameron Davis took over third and led Austin Painter and Clark in. Rhodes finished way back in 28th after getting his bike going again. Brayden Bruce was picking up the tricks of the track, improving from 15th to 7th in the first two motos. He stormed out in moto three jumping into second behind Rhodes and was looking for a good finish, then was gifted the win when Rhodes fell over in a corner late in the moto. Rhodes quickly recovered and was up and running to lead a fighting gaggle of riders consisting of Davis, Fisher and Painter in to the flag. Fisher’s 4-1-4 overall win showed that consistency is important with the three moto format. The Womens’ class featured some very strong performances by Kirsten Raemisch, who dominated with a 1-1-1 score. She jumped out front early in moto one to led Marissa Polencheck in to the flag. Kayla Solheid moved up to take third over Ashley Densow and Amy Mellinger. Moto two featured a nice holeshot by Mellinger, but Raemisch was soon by and she built up a big lead as the raced progressed. Solheid was on the gas and moved up from sixth on lap one to second on lap two. Those two pulled away out front but a battle raged behind them between Shayanna Wilson, Polencheck and Densow. The checkered brought an end to the race with Raemisch safely ahead of Solheid, Polencheck a bit back


for third and Wilson taking fourth. Raemisch led all the way in moto three, with Solheid taking over second place early and hanging fairly close to take second. There was a pretty good gap back to third-place Densow who had Kayla Allers behind her. Wilson was closing in but too late at the flag and had to settle for fifth. Good luck to all the Regional riders as they attempt to take home championships at Loretta Lynn’s!

Perfect night in Cedar Rapids Cedar Rapids, Iowa - June 23 By Tracy Petrak Photos by Missi Thede

H

awkeye Downs was the place to be on June 23rd as there was a consistent flow of fans and riders through the gates. Another competitive night of racing was underway as soon as practice was complete. The track was watered and groomed, and quite inviting to the racers ready to take it on. The starting gate was dropped for the Quad 90 CVT, and as they shot out to kick off an exciting race #99 Gage Beebe took his position in the front, consistently taunted by Roderick Philipp. Brycen Messer and Austin Hayes were close behind, pushing the first two even more. In the first moto Philipp made no mistakes and made sure Beebe knew he was there. Beebe finished first with Philipp second and Messer third. The second moto quickly proved to be an exciting one. Beebe again kept the lead with Philipp streamlining behind him and never letting him get content in his position. Clayton Pacha came back from a glitch in the first moto that kept him from finishing. Pacha took the third spot from Messer. All in all it

was a great race with Beebe winning, Philipp taking second place and Messer securing third. When the green light gave the go ahead for the SuperMini class, Jaden Wertz ripped off the gate and took the holeshot, deciding he was keeping his spot. Travis Larson and Jesse Aitchison were in their own encounter, fighting over second. Larson inserted himself into the position and kept Aitchison at bay for the remainder of the race. When the start of the second moto kicked off, Wertz took off and gained an impressive lead, and kept a good distance to take the overall victory. Larson and Aitchison had their own war again, and ended the night with a repeat of the first moto. Wertz took his win with Larson securing second place. With this still only the beginning of the summer series and with August, September and October to go, there is more than enough anticipation for the next race, but make sure you make it out, and don’t miss any of it.

Summer Fun at Sugar Camp Rhinelander, WI - June 30/ July 1 By Doug Forstner

I

t has been a busy season for many, however, the Sugar Camp crew found time to make some track changes to one of the older tracks in District 16. Even with this, with the worst drought in decades, having a track prepped properly is a difficult task. Scott Schwalbe and his crew were up to the task, working late into the Friday night to ensure the riders had a watered, well groomed track for the weekend. A huge accomplishment in the dry sandy conditions. The racing got under way on Saturday with the good turnout, and the 125Jr class was the first off the line. Hunter Sayles from Merrill, WI was on the gas right out of gate and trying to a make a break for it. Dennis Ponton, Blake Bocek, Easton Crevier, and Brady Shernick filled top five. As the moto progressed, the running order remained the same to the end. In moto two, Ponton was able to get the moto win and his 2-1 moto scores were good enough to take the overall. Bocek went 3-2 for second overall and Crevier rounded out the podium (4-3). The 65cc class soon followed as sixteen riders blasted out of the gate. Jonah Dowd and Wyatt Liebeck rounded the first turn out front and the two battled the entire moto setting some pretty decent lap times. Tristin Woolf, Dane Klinger and Caden Damp were racing behind the leaders in the top five. Liebeck was able to get around Dowd and take the moto win. Woolf was third followed by Klinger and Sam Forstner rounded out the top five. In moto two, Dowd and Liebeck got out front and really were getting around the circuit well, putting distance between themselves and the others. This time, Dowd was able to hold off Liebeck for the moto win and the overall. Woolf’s consistency going 3-3 was good for

third overall followed by Forstner’s 5-4 ahead of Klinger (4-5). The 250A class had a dozen fast riders. As I talked about some of the track changes before, after the uphill tabletop and downside, the long straight had a new angle to it with six stadium whoops thrown in to slow it all up a bit. It was obvious once 250A hit the track, some of the riders were actually trying to clear all six in one try. To put it mildly, they weren’t slowing down much. #91 Kyle Koosmann from Mellon, WI was out front trying to keep some quick eager riders behind. Adam Reek, Dylan Narel, Colton Karl and Andy Lieders +25A class rider Cody Wills railing a Sugar Camp berm. were giving chase with Karl moving into secweekend and got out in front of the class. ond early. As the moto wore on, Reek, Brett Dauphinais, Joe Novak, Justin Gille and Lieders and Narel made a freight train and Brady Schernick were rounding out the top moved past Koosmann and Karl. Reek was five in the early going. As the moto continable to get the moto win ahead of Narel and ued, Schernick figured out how to get ahead Lieders. Koosmann was fourth followed by of everyone for the and win followed by James Marietta. Renkas and Dauphinais. In moto two, not one rider finished in the Moto two had Renkas out front early besame position. Again, these guys were haulfore Schernick reeled him in and passed for ing, wringing out their 250’s. Lieders went the moto win and overall. Renkas was second back to the grind and wore the guys out, bestand Dauphinais third. Novak had a solid 4-7 ing all of them in moto two. Reek held on to for fourth and Nick Anderson went 7-5 for second place giving him the overall with his fifth. The two best improvements in the class 1-2 beating Lieders’ 3-1. Narel finished in were Brendan Gille who went 14-4 for and fourth for the moto getting him on the podium Skyler Fountaine who had the best second in third. Karl had a moto improvement going 25-8. good moto getting Sunday morning I crawled out of bed, third with his 7-3 ready to tackle another day of racing.

One of them being a current AMA Sugar Camp. Local Pro rider from Cheboygan, MI, National #12 rider Robert Renkas Sarah Whitmore of the WMA. In the first obviously has been moto Cody Wills and Andy Lieders beat her practicing his starts, around the first turn.

trials/ endurocross rider Phil Smage, Jarrett Kimbell, Rex Rosne and Jesse Snopek. As they crossed the checkers it was Lieders with the win followed by Wills and Whitmore. In moto two, again, Wills and Lieders got out front ahead of the pack, but this time, it looked like a grudge match or something between Whitmore and Smage. As the moto came to a close, the Whitmore/ Smage battle continued with Smage winning the battle for third. Lieders took the overall after sweeping both motos in the fast class. I wrapped up my weekend by checking out the Open C motos. I picked this class because it was the last one on the gate, and I wanted to see actually how rough the track would be in at the end of the second day of racing. In moto one it was Malcolm Gustafson who took the win over Tory Brady and Colton Bentz. In the rough second moto, things got mixed up with the now brutal track conditions. This time it was Brady coming out on top ahead of Gustafson. Bentz had a solid third ahead of Joe Novak and Tim Muhlenbeck, and yes, the track got as rough as I expected, maybe even more so. At the end of the day, my son and I went for a track walk and we discussed some of the craters and square edged bumps that developed throughout the weekend, and how to avoid them to save energy. If I think about it now though, a nap I had considered earlier in the day sure sounded better than trying to ride through these bumps all day. Until next time, rubber side down!

Motokazie SX delivers hot racing Jordan, Minnesota - July 7 By Dusty Rose

S

aturday evening the Motokazie SX race was held in Jordan, MN. This year Motokazie has twenty races scheduled for their SX Series. The races are held in southern MN, Iowa and Wisconsin. As the evening’s races started, the gates dropped and the Quad Open A riders pinned it to the first turn. Joe Strebel on his KTM snatched the holeshot with Bo Schuette from Cannon Falls hot on his tail. Emerging from the Cities Edge tunnel, going double, double, single through the rhythms, Schuette took over the lead. Strebel gave Schuette a run for his money. Schuette was determined to keep the lead as he flew around the track in front of the grandstands, showing the crowd a few leg kick outs before capturing the checkered flag. The second moto, Strebel again shot out with the holeshot. Schuette stayed close. Schuette went high in the berms to grab some speed, but Strebel hung onto the lead. Both racers tripled and doubled in unison. Coming out of the tunnel Schuette flew over the double and passed Strebel. They went side by side through the whoops and before the end of the lap, Strebel had regained the lead. On the next lap, emerging out of the tunnel, again Schuette made some huge jumps, caught some big air and took over the lead position. Schuette saw a wide-open track ahead, gave it some throttle and soared through the checkered flag for another win. As the third race of the night began, eight die-hard racers flew out of the gates in the +30 class. (Stormin’) Norman Miesen from St.Paul, pulled the holeshot, with Kris Griese extremely close behind. Jason Place kept his cool and squeezed past Griese on the first hill. Griese and Steve Annen battled it out for third. Annen pinned it through the sweeper just before entering the tunnel and took over, while Miesen looked silky smooth out in the lead. On the last lap Annen had his eye on Place and made his move through the whoops and took over second place. Second moto, Miesen grabbed the holeshot followed by Shakopee, MN’s Annen and Place on his Honda. The leaders encountered some lappers, but maneuvered through easily as Miesen took first place followed by Annen and Place. When the gates dropped for the 50cc Injected class, Cole Marsolek from Menomonie, WI popped into the early lead followed by Noah Miesen and Zach Barker. As Marsolek opened up a huge lead, the battle for third heated up as Ryan Farley put the pressure on Barker. Farley looked good through the 34

whoops and gained ground, but Barker stayed strong and held him off. Marsolek took the checkered followed by Miesen as Barker held off the ongoing charges of Farley. The moto two gates dropped and Marsolek grabbed the holeshot leading Ethan Rennie and Miesen. Rennie lost ground in the whoops and Miesen and Farley battled each other for second. Farley had trouble with a jump and went down and lost a position to Barker. Farley quickly remounted, pinned it, and eventually passed Barker and had his eye on Miesen again. Trying some different lines, Farley passed Miesen but not for long as Miesen regained second through the whoops. Going over the bridge

Open Quad A winner Bo Schuette.

Cole Marsolek won the 50cc Oil Injected class.


Miesen took a tumble and Farley was there to capitalize, and claim the second place finish behind Marsolek. Multi winners of the night consisted of: Josh Boaz winning the 85cc 7-11 and 65cc 10-11 classes; Wyatt Krampitz claiming the trophies for the 450B and 250B classes; and Walker Kruse grabbing the 1st place prize for the 85cc 12-15 and Open 80cc-105cc classes.

Range Riders Host Hillclimb Hill City, Minnesota - June 17 By Mike Nelson

T

he Range Riders Motorcycle Club, from Grand Rapids, MN regularly hosts Harescramble events at the Quadna Mountain Ski Resort just south of Hill City, and this year with the cooperation of the resort, decided to host their first ever hillclimb. The event was a two day climb with points awarded for each day and with the availability of cleared hills at the ski resort, riders were treated to completely separate runs each day. Saturday’s course was an 820 foot giant over twice as long as most other hills in the district. Out of the over 200 entries signed up, only a small handful were able to post times under 20 seconds. For the most part times under 23 seconds would be competitive and probably earn a trophy. Marcus Winch continued his winning ways this season as one of those in the under 20 second group. Winch was able to recover from a first round fall to take the 250cc class over first round leader Jay Jelinek, and also edged out Zach DeGross by just four thousandths of a second for the 600cc win. Winch had the first round lead in the 450cc class over Jared Gitter and Jacob Prebe, but in the second round, Prebe took the win being the first rider to make that long run in less than 18 seconds. At the end of the day, Winch took the King of the Hill class in style, setting the fastest time of the day at 17.009 seconds. Sunday’s hill was a 530 foot run that started with a long steep face and finished with a slight turn, and a final push up through the lights. Fast times for the day were coming in right around ten seconds. With no smooth lines up the long steep first push, no rider was able to dominate the day like Winch had the day before. Young Casey Paider was one of only two riders to double up wins in regular

Travis Schroedl goes for wild ride.

class competition. Paider chalked up his first win in the 65cc class over Patrick Mendele by nearly a second and a half, and then came around to take the Mini Jr. class over Davis Sunken and Colton Landwer. The other rider to double up class wins for the day was Casey Wood. Wood is the current national champion in the Women’s class, and held true to her number plate both days in that class over rival Jessica Prebe, who currently holds the #2n plate for the Women. Wood also beat up on the boys in the 125cc class, taking the win over Nathan Prebe and Logan Peterson in close competition with the top five in the class separated by less than half a second. One other rider scored two wins for the day on Sunday, but his second win didn’t come until the end of the day when the top ten faced off for King of the Hill. Before the Open class took their first runs, there had only been three riders to break the ten second mark, two 450s and a 600. Zach DeGross looked to join that group when he took to the hill on his big Kawi and ripped off a sweet run of 9.649 seconds that earned him the Open class win. DeGross was last to go up the hill at the end of the day and it looked like there would be no more runs in the nine second range. Six riders had times under ten and a half seconds led by Austin Welch who just missed with a run of 10.03 seconds. DeGross pulled into the hole and grabbed a handful of throttle taking the hill for everything it had and when the timer stopped he had earned the title of King of the Hill with a time of 9.675 seconds, and his earlier time in the Open class held for fastest run of the day. Thanks to the Range Riders Motorcycle Club for all their efforts and especially Justin

Mees Masters Brainerd Vintage FT #9 Grand National Expert Jared Mees leads the pack during the Pro DTX class.

A

MA Grand National Championship Expert Jared Mees (#9), made the trek all the way from Michigan to compete in the North Central Speedway Outlaw Pro Vintage flat track races held in conjunction with the Minnesota HOG rally to be held in the Brainerd Lakes area this week. Mees took home the lion’s share of a generous purse, and he also put on a good showing in front of a large crowd that consisted mostly of HOG Rally participants. Mees won the two Pro Vintage divisions as well as the Pro DTX class with relative ease. He failed to take all of the first place prize money after finishing second to Wheelie Contest winner and fellow GNC rider Josh Koch, who wowed the crowd with his one wheeled antics. Although there was a light rider turnout they had no complaints for lack of track time. The three classes featured in the evening’s program offered a set of two heats, a B Main and then a feature A Main. Combined with the preceding practice session, the fans were treated to plenty of fast action on the third

mile long circuit that was groomed to perfection. Mees swept the classes in commanding fashion, and while competing on three separate machines he had a lot of work to do to besides riding, explained Mees. “I couldn’t have done it without the help of Mike Wells.” Wells had a busy night preparing and staging Mees’ machines during the fast paced program. Unfortunately, the evening event did not go without a couple serious incidents involving a couple of local hot shoes. Pro Single teen sensation Cole Anderson was involved in a heavy crash during the B Main when he high-sided in turn three. Anderson was taken to the local hospital and was diagnosed with a broken collarbone and hand, plus a concussion. On the other end of the spectrum local flat track veteran Lee Fealy unloaded his Vintage Rotax hard in turn two earlier in the program. Being the Iron Man he is, Fealy finished the evening’s racing only to find out the next day that he suffered a broken ankle, and will be spending the next few weeks in a cast.

Friebel blasts Fox Valley HS Wedron, Illinois - July 22 By trackman, Photos by Kayla & Ashley Mitzelfelt

N

ormally we start a racing story by saying how great or crapy a day was. Weather plays a big factor and has all summer with the hot and dry conditions. This not being a secret many chose to stay home and play with the thermostat while thinking, ha ha, those suckers are sweating up a storm on a dusty trail! Well it wasn’t all that hot, it was pretty dusty, but hey this is off-road racing, dust is part of the game. This was the first time that D17’s Fox Valley Off Road had the opportunity to host a dual sanctioned event which welcomed District 16 riders from Wisconsin, and it became a shootout of sorts. This brings up JD Friebel and his hot rod Husqvarna 310. Some of the fast D17 guys didn’t show up, but others were there, Matthew Dissell, Steve Willis, the old guy Ryan Moss, the kids Alec Perry, and home boy Travis Ward. Moss pulled the holeshot and led for a couple laps til he slid out giving the lead to Friebel. As the laps wore on, Friebel pulled a lead, and after a last place start Dissell was reeling in the leaders with Perry and Ward dicing strong and coming up fast as well. Dissell passed Moss on the east side, next Ward passes him on the off camber. Think the comment heard was, “damn kid, have to quit showing him stuff!” Friebel kept consistent lap

times with Dissell doing what he always does, getting faster as the race goes on. We all watched to see if Dissell could reel in Friebel, who last year who went to the ISDE 6 day race I was told, so his ability isn’t second guessed. As Friebel fueled late in the race, Dissell was in striking distance, coming over the finish line logs. Anyone that knows Dissell knows he is the “stalker” and makes his play in the last minutes of a race. Today wasn’t his day. Friebel rode smart and won AA and the overall in the afternoon classes, Dissell took second as Ward held down third. Moss finished fourth overall and fifth went to Alec Perry. This was a special race for the Moss family as three generations raced this day. Grampa Greg rode the Thumper class, Alex rode 65cc and of Ryan rode

in AA. It isn’t often that this happens in any sport, and it’s special when it does. Hats off to them, and hope they can race and ride together for a long time! The other big bike classes raced in the morning. The +50 Geritol group was back, but a little thinner as it seems a few are

dinged up and sitting out this race. More had confidence with the finish line log this time and quickly they learned to maneuver this obstacle with ease. The course this race much different than the easier, earlier events. Nine up hills and as many slick down hills, rock creek with a

touch of the big creek added in. A small stretch of mx track and of course that sideways log here and there to make it interesting. The morning classes has the +50 something crowd mixed with up and comers in the C class. Not often does a C class kid who also races 85cc get the overall, but it happened today. Mason Schuhler (#945) came from the fourth row (2 min behind) in 1.5 hours to win the overall in this race. Mason is like 13? Second place was +50 rider Wally Mika at sixty years young. A very fast older guy, but Mason in the late laps found a way to get his 100cc Kawasaki past Wally’s 300 ktm. DJ Ryan took the third spot on that podium. The Thumper class which is made up of a bunch of guys who race a 150cc or smaller air cooled four strokes, and has a rivalry that formed between to individuals; John Conley (160) from Fox Valley Cycles and Nick Blacklaw (640) from RCR Kawasaki. If you remember last issue, Blacklaw was picking on Conley

a little as he passed him on the big log. Well the exact opposite thing happened this race, Conley passed Blacklaw on the log. We don’t have a photo to show if there was a little payback stare, but it now is “ON” for round four. Blacklaw passed through the check point less than five seconds behind Conley for the whole race. These two guys have become pretty good rivals, with mutual respect. Not to leave out the other brothers- Schuhler. Riley Schuhler (281) waxed B class crowd again this weekend. Older brother Nolan Schuhler (245) tried to make it a race and ran his brother up hard in the first turn. Riley didn’t hesitate, by putting away big brother and claiming bragging rights at the dinner table this night. Nolan’s holeshot lasted only a short while. Nate Hornung, bouncing his Kawy 450 off the rev limiter took advantage of Nolan’s conditioning and finished second. Schaffer Finney brought his Yamaha home in third. Next up Fox Valley Off

Road will host a D17 Bonus round. Hopefully much needed rain will happen and conditions will improve for all the races the rest of the season!

All Fun at Sunset Ridge Walnut, Illinois - July 15 By Missi Thede

I

t was another HOT day on the track at Sunset Ridge MX. With beautiful weather and great track conditions, everyone was anxious to get the race in motion. Opening the day was the thirty-five rider, packed gate of the Open C class. With the narrow approach of the start corner, everyone hoped for a good start. With the drop of the gate #736 Eran Salzmann took the holeshot with Brian Haines and Kelly Trowbridge following up the uphill triple. All riders made it through the start corners to continue their quest for prime positioning. Jonathan Warner of Geneseo, IL, moved through to the lead riders and took the lead, setting the pace for the rest of the riders. Trowbridge held the second spot in lap two along with Haines in third, but the pursuit and push from others was a constant threat. Paxton Kerber continually moved up through the pack and moved up to the fourth to put the pressure on Haines. Robert Wehn also gained more ground and was behind Kerber. Wehn pushed his way up to the third

spot and closed in on second. Haines dropped down to sixth. Then with the last lap Trowbridge had a huge setback which put Wehn into second, Kerber third, and Jake Carlson fourth, as Warner won the moto. In the second moto Wehn jumped into the lead with Warner second and Kerber in third. A battle between Karson Kokotan and Haines led to Kokotan taking his fourth spot. Overall for the day was Wehn, Warner, Kerber, Kokotan and Haines. In the +30B/C class, Brad Adams took the holeshot while Michael Gowe went for the pass toward the uphill triple, flying side by side over it with Byron Wetzell and Zeno Molteni right behind them. With a setback at the top of the uphill, Molteni took the early lead with Trowbridge moving into second and Troy Quest third. Tim Vanbeveran moved into the third spot in the next lap. First moto win went to Molteni, leading Trowbridge, Vanbeveran and Neil Anderson. As the gate dropped for the second moto, #11 Byron Wetzell of Morrison, IL, took the opening lead with first moto winner Molteni in pursuit. Quest found himself in third during the first lap, but dropped down to sixth for his overall finish of fifth. Moving up from the fourth spot to third was Trowbridge, who ended with a second overall finish. Brad Adams assumed fourth to get ninth overall for the day.

Fast day at Hurricane Hills Mazeppa, Minnesota - July 8 By Dusty Rose

O

n Sunday July 8th, at this sweet moto track called Hurricane Hills near Mazeppa, MN, motocross riders gathered to have a fun day of racing. After rider registration was finished and the riders meeting completed, the racing schedule of thirty plus classes was posted and the starting gates were ready to drop. When the 85cc 9-12 riders sped out of the gates, Austin Nelson grabbed the holeshot followed closely by Kole Lemcke on his Kawasaki. Before the end of lap one Lemcke took over the lead. Landon Gilbertson was in third. Lemcke looked comfortable, stretching out a big lead as Nelson had some trouble on the back side of the track, letting Gilbertson move up a position. Nelson riding his Yamaha wasted no time and soon over took Gilbertson as Lemcke snatched the checkered flag first. Lemcke took the lead in moto two and never looked back. Nelson and Gilbertson followed for second and third. The gates dropped and the 250C riders gunned it. Ozzie

Goodman took off leading Matthew Grieser, Wyatt Illg and Mason Marty. The riders raced down through the valley, up the huge step-up and through the challenging whoops. Goodman maintained the lead, Grieser hung on for second and Marty over took Illg for third. The second moto saw Marty grab the holeshot with Grieser and Goodman too close for comfort. Marty, Grieser and Goodman kept it close, each trying to figure out where to make a move. Coming up to the triple, Goodman went for it, caught some big air and passed Marty and Grieser, taking over the lead. Grieser snuck up on Goodman and snatched back the lead, but Goodman hadn’t forgotten where the throttle was, and used it to get the lead back, opening up some breathing room at the same time. Grieser made a mistake and Marty took over second as Goodman took the checkered flag. Two-time winners for the day were: Dillon Nelson winning the 50cc Pre Mix 7-11 and 65cc 7-9 classes. Jackson Gray winning the 65cc 10-11 and 7-11 classes. Darwin Frideres won +30A and 40A. Ryan Smoluch topped +25B and 30B. Ozzie

250C class winner Ozzie Goodman.

Goodman 14-24C and 250C. Dan Mauser won the +45B/C and +50. Nate Remington completed the list winning Open B

and 14-24B. Jake Gerlich claimed the first place trophies in three classes; 14-24A, Open A and

Sewell puts on a show in Mendota Mendota, Illinois - June 30 By Neil Dornik

A

fter a long night of showers, and more possible in the forecast, the riders at Megacross nervously unloaded their bikes, got them prepped and ready for what the night had in store for them, and I’m sure every rider there was praying it was nothing like the last race! The 14-24 class got the ball rolling with Logan Skaggs taking an early lead, while close behind was another Honda rider, Nate McLeese. The top two had a trail of green following, Jordan Mackiewicz, Mark Marincic, and Nate Hornung rounding out of top five on Kawasakis. Skaggs held off McLeese for a few laps, but half way through the race, Nate found a quicker line and took the lead. From there, he held on take the win. Hornung dropped back a few spots, while Travis Ward worked his way up into fifth. The +35 class launched off the gate next with Burton Lavens pulling off the holeshot. David Hayes, Roy Nafzger, James Rossi, and Troy Quest were all keeping it tight early. Lavens opened up some breathing room toward the end of the race, as the riders finished just as they started, but was in no way a snooze! The 50Sr class took off, and it was Ryder Schnowske with the holeshot. Second around the first corner was Hunter Billingsley on

his KTM, just ahead of John Perovic. These three put on a show, pulling away from the rest of the group. Great race guys! Krystian Janik rocketed off to a great start in the 50Jr class. After finishing second in the heat, he now had a clean track ahead of him, and with family, friends, and fans screaming, it was time for a win. Janik led all five laps and took the win. Zachery Johnson finished second, and Hunter Savage landed the last spot on the podium. Open A rider Travis Sewell nailed the holeshot and led the riders until he made a small mis-

take just before the finish line in the first lap, costing him a few positions. Behind him off the start was Kevin Markwardt, Tommy Hofmaster, and Kyle White. But things were just heating up… After lap three, Sewell had gotten around Scott Zont and moved up into fifth. Hofmaster got by Markwardt after the straightaway, moving into the top spot. The fourth lap was intense between Justin Kelly and Zont, Sewell and White for third. White flag out, and within a few turns Sewell was able to get by Markwardt to take over second. He had about three-quarters of a lap left to see if he could edge out Tommy and make a comeback win. They were side by side over the double double step-up section, Sewell on the inside. He made the move, and made it stick. The checkers waved for Sewell followed closely by Hofmaster, and Markwardt. Now for the most distinct sounding class, the 125 twostroke class. Taking the holeshot and starting out with a commanding lead was Cory Catalani on his Yamaha. Jordan Mackiewicz grabbed another good start with a few KTMs behind him, piloted by Robbie Hyson and Brian Krohn. The riders fin-

ished how they started with Kyler Hyde rounding out the top five. Tommy Hofmaster took the holeshot in the +30 class with Burton Lavens right behind him on the first lap. Roy Nafzger got by James Rossi, moving up to third. On the next lap some bad luck struck Hofmaster and a chain break left him out of the race. David Hayes went down off the start but was really charging hard! In fact, he charged all the way to second behind new leader, Lavens. To finish off the night, Trevor Hayes pulled a holeshot in the 250C class, and led a fully packed (20+) class around a well rutted up track. It was a clean start, not one rider down, and Kyle Mitchell and Jono Mandelkle were right with Hayes. Also, Nick Blumer and Kallob Kite battled up toward the front until Kite went down after the infield. The top three, Hayes, Mandelkle, and Blumer, sat pretty comfortable in their positions, and took the checkers that way The real battle was for fourth. Dustin Bartz was coming through the pack, and with only about a lap to go, he made the pass on Mitchell. Well, I don’t see it getting


cooler outside anytime soon. The night races are nice, you get a little break from the sun beating on you and all the action one could ask for in a condensed program. Just be smart when you are out there racing and riding, and try to S-T-A-Y C-O-O-L!

Successful day at Midway MX Kellogg, Minnesota - July 22 By Dusty Rose

O

n Sunday July 22nd, at the brazen Midway MX Track, the dirty dozen (whoops section), Kong (120 ft. triple) and the 5-pack (jump, jump, jump, jump, jump) had been pristinely groomed. The MX racers, their families and friends had said their prayers, asked for a safe day of racing. Twenty-two 250C riders burst out and headed for turn one as the starting gate dropped. Jesse Nelson seized the holeshot with Matthew Grieser and Lacrosse, WIâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Jacob Paterson sticking close behind. The racers flew over Kong, Grieser took the hair pin turn high, pinned it and soared by Nelson. Paterson ran into some trouble, and fell back into the pack. After two laps, Grieser held the lead with Nelson, Stephan Kassel, and Ozzie Goodman keeping pace. On lap three Nelson pressured Grieser on the uphill whoops, and then went low on the berm and took over the lead. When the dust had settled Nelson claimed the checkered flag, followed by Grieser, Kassel and Goodman. Goodman ripped a holeshot in moto two with Jeffrey Doege, Kassel and Grieser hot on his tail. Doege whizzed by Goodman, and Kassel had a little hitch in his giddy-up and Grieser took over third. Last lap, Doege had clear sailing to the checkered flag, Goodman grabbed second. Nelson made a bold move and beat Grieser across the finish line to claim the third place finish. In the Womenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s class, seven lovely ladies scrambled out of the gates. Jessica Hadler secured the lead while Jessica Hansen, Allison Larson and Katie Vanderwerf filled in behind her. They hopped through the dirty dozen, landed Kong and zipped through the uphill whoops. Hadler obtained the number one spot; Larson gained ground and swerved by Hansen, then the field of riders spread out. Hadler from New Market, MN, kicked up dirt and ripped a 50

holeshot in moto two. Larson, Hansen and Sophie Johnson, riding her Kawasaki, stayed close. The ladies maneuvered the track like freshly shampooed hair, smooth and silky, and held positions to the end. After the first moto of the Girls Sr. class, Grace Eiden from Rogers, MN, took first place. Sophie Johnson was second, Katie Vanderwerf third and Sacie

MN. Ben Graves from Dover claimed the 1st place prize for the Open 2-stroke class. At intermission over 100 riders took to the track for a memorial lap. At the end of the race day, for some, their prayers had been answered. Kong was tamed, the dirty dozen conquered and the 5pack dominated. Lee and Jamie Theis and their Motokazie crew did a great job as always.

Sophia Johnson topped the Girls class.

Ogden fourth. Johnson pulled the holeshot in moto two as Eiden, Vanderwerf and Sidney Ziebell rounded out the top four. In lap two, Eiden took a hard tumble. Vanderwerf, Ziebell, Ogeden and Kari Cunningham all advanced a position. When all was said and done, Johnson took the win ahead of Vanderwerf, as and Eiden worked her way back to third. Included in the Sunday MX races were two classes for 2stroke only, to honor the memory of District 23 racer and advocate Ross Thompson. The 2 classes were: 125cc 12+ class, won by Kyle Lawler from Rochester,

Another Hot Day at Aztalan Lake Mills, Wisconsin - July 8 By Dave Hollub

fter a week of temperatures over 100 and no rain for weeks the fate of the July race looked questionable. Starting early Thursday the dedicated track crew showed up and began pouring water nonstop onto the track in quantities so huge they had to keep a close eye not to run the pond dry. By Friday afternoon they had put down enough water that tilling the track was possible, before the real watering continued. By Sunday morning the track was perfect for the 330 entries. When the gate dropped for 50Jr., Noah Bindas was out front with a big holeshot. Owen Haseleu was running second with Nolan Schweighardt close behind. Bindas quickly made a move into the lead by the time he went past the scoring tower. Schweighard held on to third while Nathan Postma finished fourth. Haseleu got the moto two holeshot and was able to stay out front all moto. Schweighard was running second until lap two when he slid out leaving the door open for Bindas and Ben Blazek to move up into second and third. By the time lap three was over Kaiden Snyder got by Blazek and held on to third to the checkers. Haseleu took the overall with a 2/1 day while Bindas and second finished (1/2) Schweighard came back for a moto two finish in fourth to grab the final podium spot. Neil Knottnerus edged out Dillon Riemann for the Open C moto Jeremy Smith (41) and Riley Telfer battle in Open C. one holeshot while Timothy Fischer came around in third.

Robert Manke breathing down his neck. The third time over the plateau Manke outjumped Brad for second place. Brad went down soon after and had to settle for a mid-pack finish for the moto. Kevin Yde was able to turn his 3/1 day into the overall win while Haessig (1/3) was second and Greg Niles converted his 5/4 into third overall. Kirsten Raemisch powered down the start straight in Women’s moto one and then proceeded to disappear out front. In second, Jade Wennlund had Sierra Dortch on her rear wheel. Dortch had cut her way through the pack after being last around the holeshot. Dortch finally found a gap to get past Wennlund on lap three. Brenda Garland finished fourth just ahead of Dawn Cox. Moto two was a repeat for Raemisch as she again got the holeshot and checked out. Dortch got by Wennlund right away but then went down and lost a few positions. By the middle of lap two Dortch had fought back and now had Wennlund Dortch caught up to in sight. Wennlund and as they came out of the sand in the west end, slipped past into second. Later, after racing Women’s, 250C and 125Jr. Dortch commented on the second moto, “In moto two I got a pretty good start and was in second at the parastyle but I tried to take an inside line and I tipped over. When I tried picking up my bike it took a couple tries to get it up and running again so I lost two or three spots. I guess I was mad at myself and I rode hard and was able to get by everyone again on the second lap. It was kind of fun, maybe I need to do that more often, I like playing catch up, I ride harder. Thanks to Forward Motion, my Mom and Mike, Dennis Ponton Graphics, Premier Powersports, and Spiderwebmxpics. I also want to thank Sportland 2 because next week I’ll be getting a new KXF250 from them.” Tim Boblin grabbed the +45 holeshot in moto one but Robert Raduenz was out front by the time he hit the plateau. Tom Dretzka was in second and Boblin was in front of a pack of hard charging riders including Gary Behrens, Daryl Willing, Mike Zimmerman, and Paul Marescalco. Willing took over third in the east end on lap one and before the checkers flew Marescalco also moved past Boblin. Raduenz got the moto two holeshot but this time Dretzka was right behind him and poised to take away the lead. Raduenz held him back for the first three laps, but Dret-


zka finally made his move early in lap four and then stayed out front for the moto win to clinch the overall. Raduenz finished his day second overall and Willing was third. Raduenz afterwards, “This was really a fun day. I won the first moto and was second in the second moto for a second overall. In the first moto I put my head down and tried to ride as smooth as possible. Dretzka got hung up in the gate so he had a little bit of catching up to do. I saw he was there near the end so I tried to ride as hard as I could. In moto two I pulled the holeshot on my 250. I felt good and about two laps in I was thinking I could win this and then Dretzka ran me down. Tommy and I have been friends forever, and we have been beating on each other forever so it’s great and we have such a good time. I hope we are still dicing it up when we

are 80. The track today was pretty good. I was out here early in the week practicing and I really wondered if we would be able to hold the race. They did a phenomenal job getting it ready. I really want to thank Rob’s Performance he has been an unbelievable help with my racing. Also thanks to my wife for putting up with me doing this all these years.” I talked to Patti Doeberlein the Aztalan Cycle Club Vice President and she told me, “I really want to thank everyone that came out in spite of the heat. I also have to give a big thanks to all the members that came out to get the track ready. The watering and track crews did an amazing job, and many of the other members pitched in to make sure we were ready. I know it hasn’t been fun standing out in this heat doing whatever for the club. Thanks everyone, the club couldn’t do it without you.” Once again when the day was over everyone left with a great feeling, knowing they had challenged not only all the other riders but the heat wave as well, and they all won. The next motocross race will be August 12th and we hope to see you all there.

Summit Lake Hare Scramble Stone Lake, Wisconsin - July 8 By Michael Pohl

F

or the fourth time in row, Trail Boss Mike Murphy of the Straight Arrow Enduro Riders presided over what many riders called the “best yet” Stone Lake Hare Scrambles event. Always a favorite, this twodistrict event (D16 & D23) attracts riders from Minnesota and Wisconsin. It has earned the reputation for offering a balance of fast trails, open grass sections mixed together with short, technical rocky sections. It makes for an entertaining, yet challenging, course. Riders experience a little bit of everything. It began as a dry summer day, until the last lap of the A/B race, when the thunder clouds moved in and doused the course with an inch or so of rain. Vet B rider Matt Stukel said, “The darkness on the last lap had me wishing I had some baja lights so I could see the trail. The course was awesome with something for everyone! It was my best race in two years!” Wisconsin rider J.D. Friebel and Minnesotan Nate Ferderer duked it out all day long. Ferderer led the first two laps and Friebel led the last four. Friebel said, “I kept pushing it until the last lap. I knew I had a little cushion on Nate, so I slowed it down a notch so I wouldn't make any big mistakes and throw it away, because I knew Nate would be pushing all the way to the finish to try and catch me.” Ferderer’s view of the day was, “I started to make up the gap to the lead then it started to get very dark on lap five, I made the mistake of using a tinted lens for my goggles and

it was nearly impossible to see anything in the woods, yet I couldn't take them off because I knew it was going to rain.” After two hours and twenty minutes of racing, the two were just six seconds apart at the finish. For much of the day they were in sight of each other. Overall A winner was Nate Zambon, who

finished ahead of several AA jockeys, and appears to be well on his way to earning his own coveted AA classification this year. C rider


Zach Wittmer said, “I enjoyed the course, but was glad it was over before the rain arrived!” The finishing order shows some serious talent coming from the youngest riders. Tyler Pogreba finished second overall in the A class. Pogreba said,

“The track was very fun. It had a lot of variety. The first half of the race was dusty and then at the end it was very wet and slimy. I was just trying to keep the pace fast, and stay smooth. I am looking forward at the next Stone Lake Harescramble!” Younger

AA class rider Luke Wilder finished third.

LaPorte tops all at Crystal Falls Crystal Falls, MI - July 7/8 By Cody Wills

A

fter a blistering hot week in Wisconsin, it sometimes is hard not to either stay home in the air conditioning or head to the lake instead of going to the race track. With this weekendâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s race in Northern Michigan you can always expect nice cool nights, and hopefully more comfortable days, which makes going to the races the easy decision. +30A had a few good battles up front on Saturday. Randy Miller pulled the holeshot in moto one and led for a lap until Ben Bernard and Tom Kalies made their charge to the front. Miller diced with Bernard for a while which allowed Kalies to gain a comfortable lead. By lap four Bernard broke free and worked towards Kalies, but by the time he got to Kalies the moto ended. Moto two proved the same, Miller again put his YZ450 as Kalies and Bernard Nathen Laporte was on a mission, worked past, and battled till the dominiating both 250A and Open A. end. Kalies picked up the win and overall. Wyatt Liebeck close behind. Nooyen and Sunday saw good racing all day. In Liebeck seemed to be a level above the rest, +40 Matt Bronk pulled the holeshot on his checking out from the pack. Jonah Dowd YZ450, followed close by Jason Heindl. had a good battle Tristin Woolf for third beKalies was in third and it didnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t take long fore Dowd wrapped up the position just befor him to make his way into the lead. fore the checkered flag. Heindl made a pass on Bronk quickly after, and on the second lap Kalies stalled it in the back allowing Heindl to move into the lead and Bronk to second. Kalies mounted a charge and with a lap to go he got by Bronk. Kalies and Heindl spent the last lap going at it coming together twice, once when Kalies took the inside before a small drop off and then again when he powered around the outside going off the table top. That was enough to move into the lead, and Kalies got the win. Moto two again had those three out front again as Heindl and Kalies were going at it again. Heindl was doing anything he could to ride a wide bike. Kalies kept trying all the inside lines, trying to make something work. That cat and mouse game allowed Bronk to stay real close. Kalies finally passed Heindl in the last lap for the win and overall. The 65cc class had some excitement with Mitch Nooyen showing his speed. Matt Bronk leads Jason Heindl and eventual Moto one had Nooyen pull the holeshot with winner #200 Tom Kalies in the +40 class.

CYCLE USA, August 2012

Moto two was the exciting moto for these little guys as this time Nooyen made work for himself coming around the first turn in dead last. Preston Maki got the holeshot and led with Liebeck in second. Maki had the glory of leading for the first half a lap before going down handing the lead to Liebeck. It was looking good for Liebeck and the overall, but by the end of lap two Nooyen had come from outside the top ten to be challenging for the lead. By the end he got around Liebeck and took the win, and swept the day. 250A moto one had Nate Laporte getting the holeshot after making the nine hour trip overnight from trying to qualify at Red Bud the day before. Close behind was Adam Reek. Kyle Kooshmann moved in to third, and Jake Vaness was really fast all day, this moto picking up fourth. Laporte dominated the moto showing his raw speed. Moto two was a different story as Laporte was way back and getting the holeshot this time was Michiganâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Andy Zambon followed by Vaness, Kooshmann and Reek. After lap two Zambon still had the lead and Reek had pulled off. Laporte was up to fifth after his dead last start. Vaness was making a charge to the front, and by lap last lap Vaness took over the lead and Laporte had moved around Zambon to second. The determined Laporte put his SE Sales


KTM to the lead and got the 1-1 finish. With Reek pulling off Vaness’ 4-2 got him second and Kooshmann’s 3-4 locked him down for third overall. It was another great day of racing at Crystal Falls Valley raceway. There was a good turnout, and you can always expect great track conditions, no matter what the weather throws at the Uren Family.

ers making it to the line. In the Heat race Hunter Grampp fell hard and broke his leg everyone wishes him the best and a speedy recovery. The gates dropped with Nick Cutrone took the hole shot with Tyler Peters in second and Christopher Gallagher in third. Coming into the first turn Kokotan took the inside and got third from Gallagher then coming into the last turn Kokotan takes second from Peters coming over the line. Right into the second lap Kokotan is on fire and gets by Cutrone in the whoops section; meanwhile Noah Taylor finds a gap and passes Peters to take over third. Coming across the finish Kokotan takes first, Cutrone holds off Taylor to take second and Taylor gets third. In Open A, B and C tonight were certainly interesting. A class had only one rider, Jon Williams takings the points, and B also had one rider with Ricki Williams taking the points tonight. C class came up to the line with 12 riders ready to go, when the gates dropped Andrew Friebele got the hole shot with Michael Bank in second and Dillion Riemann in third. Brandon Larson was looking for any way to get around Riemann trying all lines, in the meantime Bank found his way around Friebele and Riemann holding onto

his past weekend was the double header out at Joliet MX on June 22nd and 23rd. It was a great weekend for racing; the weather was great on Friday. Saturday was cloudy and humid, but the rain stayed away which was great news. Once again this weekend regionals were going on so some of the classes were missing a few people, but overall the turnout was fantastic and a great weekend! As a special event Saturday night the crowd was treated to a freestyle show with the Joliet MX local Jon “air time” Williams throwing down some huge tricks off the freestyle ramp. Lary Bank “the Rev” was out out the track night after breaking his leg in California earlier in the month. Unfortunately he’s unable to race, but is still out to lead moto church, and announce the races keeping everything going smoothly. On Saturday the 85 class was packed with lots of great races in all classes. Up first was 85 Beginner with Connor Mackinnis taking the hole shot followed by Timmy Evoy in second and Vincent Palade in third. Coming down to the last lap Evoy had been trying hard to get around Mackinnis and was finally able to make the pass through the whoops section taking over the lead. Mackinnis battled back, but wasn’t able to get around Evoy leaving the results with Evoy in first, Mackinnis in second and Palade in third. 85 JR started late in the evening with Christopher Gallagher taking the hole shot, Matthew McDannel in second, and Noah Taylor in third. Right after the first turn is the newly added whoops section and McDannel got around Gallagher coming into the next turn only to have Taylor fly into the inside rut and pass them both taking over the lead. The order didn’t change the rest of the race leaving Taylor in first, McDannel in second and Gallagher in third. In 85 SR Cameron Poces grabbed the hole shot with Dlyan Roesch in second and Karson Kokotan in third. Coming around the first turn Kokotan flew past everyone all the way up to the front and processed to create a good gap from the pack. On the third lap Nick Cutrone had been working hard to get around Poces and finally pulled it off cutting into the inside of the third turn to take over third. The race came to close with Kokotan taking first, Roesch taking second and Cutrone in third. 85 open was a great race tonight as well 12 rid- 85cc Open class start with #34 Nick Cutrone up front. 58

third. Coming into the third lap Riemann got by Friebele coming on the inside of the sweeper to take over second. Coming across the line Bank took the win with Riemann holding on for second and Friebele taking third. As always I love watching the 50’s race, they are always out giving it their all. The largest group tonight was 50cc 4-8 with 12 riders lining up at the gates. Everyone had a great start off the line and Hunter Savage got out ahead with the hole shot, with Dave Frawley in second and Andrew Voegtle in third. Savage was looking great out there tonight starting to get a good lead while Voegtle got by Frawley to take over second place. With the pack starting to spread out all riders were certainly having a great time out there tonight. Coming over the finish line Savage took the win, and he also won Friday night’s race as well. Voegtle took second and Frawley held on for third place. 125 2-stroke came out earlier in the day with Eric Mack taking the hole shot, Brian Krohn in second and Ricki Williams in third. Coming through the whoops Krohn took the inside on Mack and took over the lead. He started


to create a good gap as Williams also found his was around Mack moving into second. Kyle Moore was running in forth looking for a way around Mack, but was unable to get by. This left the final results with Krohn taking first, Williams in second and Mack in third. In the 250 class tonight there were some great races as always. In 250A Jon Williams was the only rider tonight taking the points for the win. 250 B was right behind him off the line with Harvey Bushby taking the hole shot, August Miksys in second and Brian Krohn new to the 250 class riding in third. Coming in to the first turn Miksys got around Bushby and started to build a good lead out front. Behind them the 197 of Mitch Cerda got by Krohn taking over third. Bushby went on the attack getting closer and closer to Miksys every lap. On the final lap he was right behind Miksys and going into the last turn it looked like either one of them could easily be the first over hill. Miksys went inside and Bushby went outside, Miksys gunned it over the line to take the win. Bushby took second with Cerda taking third. 250 C was up next with 14 riders packing into the gates. Derek Brueggert the winner of Friday nightâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s 250c took the hole shot with Nicholas Moser in second and Andrew Friebele in third. Brueggert immediately started making a sizeable lead up front while Friebele got by by Moser taking over second place. Alec Leasure was on the move through the pack and got up right on

Moser and found a line around him on the last lap to move up into third. They came across the line with Brueggert taking first, Friebele taking second and Leasure in third.

Nuclear Series Double Points Byron Illinois - July 22 By Josh Rud, More photos at: www.ShiftOnePhotography.com

B

eing the week before Loretta Lynnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s we had a lot of riders out to get some motos in, as well as others from out of town on their way to Tennessee looking for some seat time on the way. It rained early in the morning slowing the racing down a bit, but it ended up being just enough to keep the track wet all day. This allowed intermission to be skipped, and left things moving right along. Today was the day to be out with it being series double points, you can shake up the overall standings with one good ride. There was lots of great racing today, the action was at full throttle as always. 14-24 was the first moto of the morning with Justin Wolf taking the win ahead of Justin Hager and Logan Skaggs. After a quick groom of the track the second set of motos were under way and Hager was out front with the holeshot. Skaggs was behind him, and Wolf close in third. Hager went down briefly on the third lap moving Skaggs to the front leading Wolf and Nicholas Inman. On the last lap Skaggs got caught up but kept it moving, however Wolf and Inman both got around him

giving Wolf the win. Wolf took the overall winning both motos, Skaggs second with two third place finishes and Inman third (52). In 250Aâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s first moto Zach Coons took the win. Joseph Dalzell was second and Devon Adair had third. Off the line for the second moto Ty Tyrell shot out ahead with Cameron Lansing in second and Coons third. Coming through the whoops section on the third lap Coons got by Lansing. Dalzell had been battling through the pack, and also caught up with Lansing and got around him.

move and passed Wolf to take third. The largest gate of the day was 250C, with twenty-nine riders signing up for action. In the first moto Max Chaush scored the win, with Paxton Kerber second. Jake Peterson put in a great ride to finish third. Late in the afternoon the second moto lined up with the sun cooking everything thoroughly. Off the line Chaush took the holeshot, with Matthew Dziubinski in second and Paxton Kerber third. Coming down the hill from the first lap Kerber moved into first with Jake Carlson passing into third. Coming around the second turn Chaush got inside of Kerber to take back the lead and held on the rest of the lap. Chaush took the win and the overall while Kerber settled into second for second and second overall. Later the +30B/C was up at the line to bring on the action. In the first moto Zeno Molteni took the win. The second moto blasted off the line with Molteni taking the holeshot, Billy Walker was in second just ahead of Dimutre Karastoyanov. Walker had finished third behind Karastoyanov in the first moto, so their positions made all the difference in the overall scheme. Karastoyanov quickly made his move and took over first as Walker followed, leaving Molteni in third. Just a couple corners later Molteni passed them both back to lead once again. Coming down the hill Jeremy Barone got around Walker, but got passed back through the whoops section. Coming across the finish the race ended the same as the first moto with Molteni in first, Karastoyanov in second and Walker third.

There was lots of great racing today, the action was at full throttle as always. Coons went down in the back of the track moving Dalzell in and Lansing up as Tyrell had checked out from the pack to take the win. Dalzell took the overall with second in both motos. 250B was up on the line next with a large group of twenty-two riders. In the first moto Austin Das took the win edging out Justin Wolf in and Nickolas Inman. When the gate dropped for the second moto Logan Skaggs took the holeshot with Das and Wolf right behind him. After several laps of battling, Das got around Skaggs to take over first place. On the last lap through the whoops section Inman made his

Open C at the gate.


Chase Sexton was fast as always, winning three classes.


85Sr lined up with Chase Sexton, last year’s Loretta Lynn’s 85cc champion riding great! In the first moto Sexton took the win with Austin Macias in second and Stuart Schwagerman third. Off the gates of the second moto Sexton took the holeshot with Macias in second and Jarred Berggren third. Coming to the first jump Sexton had already created a good gap in the field with the order staying the same to the line. Sexton also took first in Supermini and Schoolboy wins today.

McGurer, Denson fast at Cayuga Cayuga, Indiana July 21/22 By Bud Northrup Photos by Martha Peters

J

oe McGurer and Josh Denson waged a fast time war in the 600cc class at the Pleasure Riders double header hillclimb weekend on July 21 & 22. McGure came out ahead on Saturday night with a 3.648 second first round run on his Kawasaki, just 6/100’s quicker than Denson. McGurer’s time was also good for the Fast Time Award. McGurer also took the first round lead on Sunday with a 3.834 second time, but in the second round, Denson flew over the top of the 160 foot hill in 3.806 seconds to take the class lead. McGurer failed to better his time on his second ride and had to settle for second place. Denson’s time also held up for the overall Fast Time Award on Sunday. Matt Peters and Kirk Gorsuch were double class winners on Saturday. Peters took the 250cc class win in 3.784 seconds on his second ride, coming from behind to overtake McGurer who posted 3.833 seconds in the first round. In the +40 class, Peters’ first round 3.652 second time was good for the win, with ‘Wild

Wade’ Schultz second. Gorsuch rode his Kawasaki to wins in both the 450cc and 600cc four stroke classes. Dylan Brady was his closest challenger in the 450cc class while Troy Camerer claimed second in the 600cc 4 stroke class. Peters had an even better day on Sunday, winning all three classes he entered, adding the 450cc class to his victories in the 250cc and Senior classes. McGurer, Denson and Andy Fortner were his closest challengers in those classes. In youth racing, Levi Peters took the 85Jr class win, and also claimed the Youth Fast Time award both days. Brodie Bennett was the 50cc class winner both days, Derick Bell and Cline Garriott shared the 65cc class wins, while Reece Hutton and Jacob Bell were the 85Sr class winners.

Dungey Domination Continues Buchanan, Michigan - July 7 By Pete Emme

J

uly 4th weekend for any American is usually a big deal. For Red Bud Motocross it’s a huge event when Motocross and patriotism come together with 30,000 fans and some of the best riders on the planet converge for the Lucas Oil AMA Motocross National Championship. Red Bud also marked the halfway point of the series where 450cc rider Ryan Dungey has taken his KTM to the top of the points standings. Red Bud usually means some hot and humid weather. 100 degree temperatures hovered on top of

the Ritchie Family facility, but that didn’t disappoint any of the fans as they were treated to great racing in both the 450cc and 250cc classes, and were also treated to a post race fireworks show. As stated earlier, Ryan Dungey has been dominant, sort of Carmichael (esque) as he has eight moto wins in a row after finishing with 1-1 tallies at Red Bud. Dungey set a blistering pace in the first moto on the rough and rugged track. He established himself as the rider to beat even with the return of Suzuki rider James Stewart. “Once we found out that James was coming back for this

Wisconsin’s Sportland 2 backed Kody Kamm in the 250cc class.

Ryan Dungey looks to have a firm grasp on the 450 class and the red plate.

race, I think the game plan was to just get the start and then see how things work out,” said Dungey. “I didn’t want to underestimate James just because he’s been hurt. He can push the envelope and when you’ve got a heated battle a lot can happen, so I was glad we just got out front early and got a big lead,” said the Belle Plains, Minnesota native. After Stewart’s fall, Kawasaki’s Jake Weimer and Honda’s Justin Brayton moved past into position behind Dungey, who was by far gone. Dungey won the moto convincingly by 45 seconds. Stewart fell one more time and eventually wound up in the sixth spot. The second moto had Suzuki’s fast starter Mike Alessi out front, but it didn’t take long before Dungey to took over and checked out in the blistering

heat. Alessi remained in that spot, riding a good race. He fell in the first turn of the first moto and worked his way to the 11th position, good enough for fifth overall via his 11-2 scores. James Stewart would rebound in the second moto to finish third, and third overall with 6-3 tallies just behind Brayton and his 3-4 scores. In the most entertaining class of the series, the 250cc class, Blake Baggett came from behind to win both motos and retain his number one plate. Baggett was the only rider to clear LaRocco’s Leap in the smaller class. “I just went as fast as I could go and hoped I could make it,” said Baggett. “The first time was scary because I thought I was going to over shoot it, but I barely even made it, and maybe I second guessed myself a bit on


Nationals always deliver plenty of excitment.

that one. So I just sent it on the second lap.” Baggett began his charge after the first lap where he was in the sixth position and had moved into the second spot by lap five, and eventually the lead by lap twelve. Justin Barcia led the most laps at Red Bud. He had dialed in some great starts but Baggett was just too much for him to handle. Baggett even fell in the second moto, but had kept his Kawasaki running to overtake Barcia on the eighth lap, and never look back, taking

the second moto win in front of 30,000 eager fans. Baggett went 1-1 while Barcia went 22 for second overall. Rounding out the top three was Barcia’s teammate, Eli Tomac, who went 5-3 for third. The Women’s Motocross Championship was also on hand for the fifth round of the series where defending champion, Honda’s Ashley Fiolek won both motos to get her second win of the summer. Current points leader Jessica Patterson, who broke her hand the previ-

ous week, gutted it out for a fourteenth place finish and retained her points lead. Other local riders making the show in the 450 class included; Drew Yenerich 26-19, Jake Loberg 27-28, Dalton Carlson 25-30, and Michigan’s Nikki Izzi 35-38. In the 250 class Minnesota’s Gannon Audette made the main finishing 24-24, Kody Kamm went 26-23, while David Butler finished with 38-29 motos.

Troy Lee Designs hits the track at Spring Creek MX Park Millville, Minnesota - May 20 By Mike Quinn

S

unday May 20th the dawn rose with cloudy skies after a night of rain. The weather didn’t deter the 150 plus riders that drove to Spring Creek MX Park for a free ride day sponsored by Troy Lee Designs. Customers and dealers alike showed up to enjoy a great day of riding on the primo prepped track by John Martin and crew. Some of the riders checked out the trails that were used the previous week for a Hare Scrambles. Although they had not been groomed, some sections offered a good challenge for those riders that decided to take advantage of them. Even though clouds hung above the track all day, the rain held off and the facility stayed in great shape. For those of you that are not aware of it, Troy Lee Designs has taken over as distributor for Shock Doctor products, including the Eject Helmet Removal System. Troy Lee products have the motocross

and off-road racer’s safety in mind when designing and marketing their products. It is encouraging to see a company that is actively involved in protection of the racer along with style and comfort. It is also really nice to see a company that shows its appreciation for your business by hosting an event like this. I cannot think of another that shows its appreciation on a grassroots level. This offers many riders that do not race or compete an opportunity to ride comfortably on a great track. The classes were broken down into racer /rider ability levels, and fully staffed

with flaggers and medic crew. It provided an ideal format for all the riders that showed up. Many of the best riding days are days like this where there is no pressure, just riding for fun. You feel it click and everything seems to come together, the golden day we have all experienced. Its too bad we can’t experience more days like this. We also got a nice preview of some of the 2013 gear. I’ve always encourage riders/ racers to support the companies and dealers that support us, and TLD is one of those companies. Lets make 300+ riders next year.

Riders Romp at Spring Creek Millville, Minnesota - July 13-15 By Rolfe Otterness

T

he popular Donny Schmit Amateur race at Spring Creek Park drew the biggest crowd in years with about 750 entries on Friday’s show and another good crew hanging in there for Sunday’s Pro Track Challenge. Many out-of-state riders were on hand to get a taste of one of the top tracks in the country, making for some very competitive classes. The Donny Schmit day (Friday) started with the track in prime condition, but later in the morning the skies let loose with some fairly significant precipitation, creating havoc on the track and necessitating some creative rerouting so it was navigable. Some of the steeper hills were bypassed as they would be impossible for most of the competitors. The rain did back off enough so that the racing could continue but it was messy for the remainder of the day. Sunday’s Pro Track Challenge was designed to let the amateur riders taste the course, much as the pros tackled it on Saturday. All the course was used, but a few of the jumps were tamed down a bit so that a reasonable sampling of riders could make them. The track was in excellent condition compared to Friday’s mud run. These two races counted as rounds seven and eight of the Spring Creek Super Series. The standout amateur rider of the weekend, purely speedwise, would be Jesse Wentland, who took control in 14-24A and Open A on his KTM. Zach Williams was pretty close with Wentland though, and did manage a moto win over him in 14-24A. Other strong riders were the ever competitive Gage Fisher

Tearoff sales were up on Friday after the rains.

Jesse Wentland was flying in the A classes.

in the Mini classes, Cole Marsolek on even smaller minis, Snocross rider Tucker Hibbert, returning from injury and Nolan Heppner, master of the C classes. Donny Schmit Day: Wentland pulled the holeshot in the first Open A moto, which was run in dry conditions. Zach Williams slotted into second but Wentland put a good gap on him early. Tucker Hibbert, back in action after recovering from his late-season snocross injuries, looked solid as he maintained his third place position to the checkered. Jake Baumert from Kentucky, took fourth over local rider Jamie Ledin. Wentland grabbed the lead early in moto two with Williams close behind but Williams bobbled a bit early on and dropped back to fifth. A battle over second erupted with Ledin, Lucas Lowe and Williams all in the mix. Wentland kept the throttle twisted hard and built his lead over the pack as he took the checkered. Next across were Ledin under pressure from Lowe and Williams back a bit in fourth. The 85 12-15 Mini class featured a good start by Alex Ingalls, but

it wasn’t long before local boy Ben Adamson and Texan Alec Mellick dropped him into third. Adamson dealt with the pressure and managed to stretch out a gap over the next few laps, and took the win by about seven seconds. Mellick maintained his position for second over Nickolas Lorenz as the rain was coming down, and making the track very greasy. Ingalls was fourth over Alan Spaeth. The second moto once again had Adamson out front with Mellick repeating for another second over Lorenz. Blake Hansen topped his first moto sixth with a fourth over Luke Hempen as they came across the finish line. Nolan Heppner roosted to the front of the field as the 14-24C class claimed the track for their first moto. The rain started pouring down and mass chaos erupted as the C riders tackled some of the hills. Heppner did not seem to be affected too much as he was still jumping like a fiend and went on for the win. William Dale from Michigan and Autin Kienast from South Dakota made it in for 2-3 finishes with Chase Becker and Ben Ferrin rounding out the top five in a mud fest galore. Kienast came out strong in moto two and took a rare win over Heppner, good enough for second overall. Tanner Fenenga was third with Dillon Riemann fourth and Ferrin once again in fifth. Pro Track Challenge: Sunday’s sunshine was a welcome change from Friday’s cloudy drizzle and Mitch Koester jumped out front in the first Open B moto. Henry Miller looked to be ready to move to the front but a crash after the triple dropped him back in the pack.


Koester went on to take a nice win over Brent Ash with Conner Cunningham taking over third on the last lap. Jordan Jones and Travis Muller cruised on in for 4-5 finishes. Koester grabbed another holeshot in moto two and went on for the win with Ash repeating in second. Cunningham ran well for another third place finish ahead of Muller and Kenny Hempen. Not too much drama here as they were spread out by the flag. In the Schoolboy class, Travis Prier pulled a good start but Hunter Sayles dropped him back to second early on. Prier maintained second and was impressive in making the uphill double on his 125. Sayles crashed somewhere in the whoops and Prier took over the lead although under pressure from Chase Stevenson. At the flag it was Prier narrowly taking the win over Stevenson with Blaze Best and Jamison Duclos a bit behind. Nick Wallace established himself as fifth across the line. Duclos nailed the start on his Yamaha and looked strong all the way to the checkered. Stevenson held second with Sayles pressuring in the early part of the moto, but Stevenson crashed and dropped back in the pack. Sayles started to slowly reel in Duclos but ran out of time and settled for second over Best and Prier. Fifth went to Nick Wallace over Kyle Lawler and Stevenson recovering from his crash.
