Defeated but not defeatist.

 

You just knew it was gonna happen. It was too good to be true. With the 450 title wrapped up early, all the excitement was left to the 250 series and it had delivered unrelenting unpredictability for 22 moto’s. Well there was one aspect that had been pretty consistent up to Ironman MX, Jeremy Martin and Marvin Musquin had been the class of the class from one round to the next despite Jeremy Martin starting himself out of a hole on multiple occasions. 

 

As you certainly read last week, Jeremy had passed 71 guys up until Ironman MX and Marvin had...

A finale that can not disappoint!

This 250 title has been more like an olympic game of beach volleyball than the standard battle for a title in motocross. Marvin Musquin has finally made it to the end of a 250 outdoor series with his health at full strength and the returning champ, Jeremy Martin has shown incredible focus multiple times this series, fighting through the pack with veteran-like composure. As we embark on year two at the Ironman MX in Indiana, well honestly year-one considering the biblical conditions last year, we are assured one thing; this...

The truth is supposed to set you free, yet so many will use your honesty against you the first chance they get.

 

Cooper Webb is one of those fiery racers who can polarize fans. He makes no bones about what it is he is feeling or wants to say and doesn’t care if you take issue with it or not. I’ll be the first to say I am in full support of honesty as the best rule, across the board. Sure it can hurt but the alternative- to posture, lie, deceive or pretend; will always end in a more complicated process which will leave your integrity tarnished and reputation sullied.

 

Does it...

Flipping the script when the ball is rolling downhill.

 

As I was typing that opening teaser line it struck just how ironic it is. Typically when something is related to be going downhill, that sounds like a bad thing because apparently, you never want to be at the bottom of the hill. You want to be the KING of the hill. You really gotta bust your ass to get to the top of the hill and as we are all well aware in this day and age; work is bad. Nobody likes to work hard anymore, it’s all about what can you do to help me reach my potential… whoa, I’m digressing again. So yeah, getting a ball to roll downhill is dead simple. It just does. 

 

Now I’m not saying...

When four becomes one.

 

You know, usually there isn’t anything like a good ole fashioned mudder to really liven up a series with bizarre results and that “anything can happen” outlook from fans, racers and teams alike, prior to the gate drops. USUALLY, this is the case but with the doors closing on the Two Two Motorsports era during the off week and… ok well I guess the fact that we didn’t get photos from the “extra wet” Budds Creek has at least a little to do with me not focusing on the action from the weekend; but I digress. I really, I mean REALLLY wanted to draw a bunch of simple stick figure drawings and diagrams to use as “photos” as I wrote about Budds Creek but that is just far too time intensive for this busy time of year for a Dad of three.
