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

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.

LES ARTISTES | 23.03.2017

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

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 ;-)


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 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 !

TOP MAN | 19.12.2015

Shaun Simpson is the people's choice ! After many months of worldwide voting the Scot has come out top of the charts to be stalked throughout 2016 by Living For The Weekend for their next video "The Exceptional Six".

Armed with factory Toomers for the 2016 campaign Shaun is the man in the spotlight ! Five more names will be announced in the coming days, but it is now clear .... Shaun is Top Man !

ROUND 10 @ TALAVERA | 09.12.2015

No official word yet from the FIM or YS, but the round 10 TBA, the midway point of the 19 round 2016 MXGP world series on May 28/29, will be at Talavera in Spain. It was a no-brainer after the Spanish attended the recent organisers' meeting as "observers", but the Spanish media is reporting it as a done deal and Talavera have clearly now coughed up their 2015 debts to YS. In addition to the regular GP classes, the event will also host EM125, EM250 and EM300.
