DUNGEY STEPS AWAY ON TOP | 16.05.2017
DUNGEY STEPS AWAY ON TOP

Ryan Dungey has announced his immediate retirement from racing: "This decision has not been an easy one. I've gone as hard as I can for as long as I can but the reality is that our sport is tough, the seasons are long and it takes a huge amount of sacrifice, hard work and discipline to stay on top. Physically I feel that I'm in the best shape of my life, race craft-wise I'm in the best shape of my life and I have the equipment to win, there's no doubt about that. However, this year I have struggled mentally. I just feel it in my heart that I am ready to step away now happy, healthy and feeling totally blessed. Although I'm taking a step back from racing, I still plan to be involved in the sport. As this chapter of my life comes to a close, I'm excited to see what the next chapter has in store for me." KTM US boss Roger De Coster added: "Ryan will stay involved with our team although it (his role) is not completely defined yet. He has already begun helping Marvin prepare for the Nationals and we are excited to continue our relationship with him." The 27 year old is clearly being groomed to take over the reigns at KTM USA when The Man, now 72, finally calls it a day. Anyone who has seen him take younger teammates under his wing will know he will be a perfect choice.

DRINK UP | 30.04.2017
DRINK UP

After 14 years of tyranny by world drug parasites WADA and their associated members like the FIM you can now risk a glass of wine with your meal the night before competition as ethanol has been removed from the list of substances deemed "doping". Not that this means binge drinking is back in as alcohol "abuse" can still be sanctioned for "endangering fellow competitors" and the limit is just 0.1 promille ! There is no truth in the rumour that all results from the 20th century will be annulled - apparantly they don't have any frozen samples to check LOL - but breathalyser tests were carried out earlier this month in Mexico and Italy.

Darian Sanayei wasn't the only one having fun on Greg Atkins' perfectly groomed jumps in Villa La Angostura. Next up Arnaud Tonus, then scroll down for more fun with Max Anstie, Seva Brylyakov, Julien Lieber and Mr S again.

FUTURE CHAMP ? | 18.03.2017
FUTURE CHAMP ?

Finally got to Villa La Angostura after a marathon, including 10 wonderful hours wait in that craphole LHR T5 and 13 hours with BA to BA. Cold as **ck this morning (-2) but headed for +20 and sunshine this afternoon. Had a pleasant final leg to Bariloche in a row with a 14 year old Argentinian kid and his dad chatting in Espanglais. Turns out Mateo Caceres from Tucuman up in in the north is notching up the victories week in, week out on his KX85. A future champion ? Who knows ? But keep your eyes open for #511 in a couple of years time. His favourite rider ? Max Nagl. So get your **se in gear this weekend, Max, like when you ripped past RV2 two years back, and send one nice lad home with an even bigger smile on his face Sunday evening ;-)

JUST LIKE BEING AT HOME | 02.03.2017
JUST LIKE BEING AT HOME

Presumably we won't get riders flaking out in the heat as has happened in Thailand, but at least they should get a free shower at some time this weekend in Indonesia. Apparantly it has rained in Pangkal Pinang every day for a couple of months, but, to put that into perspective, the island of Bangka is just two degrees south of the Equator and rainfall is the norm at some time in the day; that doesn't mean it p***es down non-stop, ok! The forecast air temperatures are also a little below average, but the humidity levels mean you can add 10 degrees for the "feel" temperature.

IT AIN'T HALF HOT, MOM | 26.01.2017
IT AIN'T HALF HOT, MOM

It went pretty quiet over the GP of Indonesia since the contract was announced last year, and many wondered if it would truly go ahead. Well, the downpayment has been made and the track layout has been carved out of the forest between the river and the airport of Pangkal Pinang, so it's all actions go for round two of the MXGP/MX2 world series and the WMX opener on March 4/5. Presumably someone will find unkind words about the track once we get there, but let's be quite clear about the challenge facing the contestants. Pangkal Pinang is about 100 miles from the Equator - it's gonna be hot and sticky. May the best man/girl win !

2017 YZ125 CUP @ MATTERLEY | 30.11.2016
2017 YZ125 CUP @ MATTERLEY

The 2017 final of the YZ125 bLU cRU Cup, with national qualifying rounds all over Europe, will be integrated into the programme of the Motocross des Nations at Matterley Basin on September 30/October 1; the final of the 2016 edition formed part of the programme at the SMX Cup, the future of which is uncertain after this year's race in the Veltins Arena attracted less than 5000 spectators.

MARVIN MUSQUIN WINS LILLE | 13.11.2016
MARVIN MUSQUIN WINS LILLE

Marvin Musquin is the new King of Lille. Unbeaten all weekend in the Stade Pierre Mauroy Marvin became the first home sovreign for a decade and, courtesy of a late crash by Malcolm Stewart, also led the Grande Nation to victory in the team classification. Tommy Searle survived various incidents to classify 10th and Jake Nicholls went home wth nothing worse than a sprained wrist after a series of crashes. And, unlike the other stadium races this autumn, there was actually a crowd to see it. Vive La France !

MATTERLEY NATIONS 2017 | 28.09.2016
MATTERLEY NATIONS 2017

The Nations is back in Britain next year ! Less than a day after YS cancelled their contract with Glen Helen, Matterley Basin, where YS is joint promotor with Steve Dixon, has been named as replacement for the 2017 Nations, planned on the most recent provisional calendar for the weekend of September 30/October 1. Glen Helen was dropped after dismal crowds and lack of promotion at the GPs, but there are no such concerns for a Nations in Britain, where massive crowds attended Foxhills in 1998, Matterley in 2006 and Donington in 2008. Matterley was already pencilled in for 2019, and an alternative for the USA is being sought for that year. 2018 is at Assen, 2020 in France and 2021 Maggiora; the biggest race of the year must go to sure-fire success venues !
