What a growth spurt for the pint-sized warrior with the heart of a lion.

Contrary to common sense and elementary skills of connecting the dots, this is not going to be about Alex Martin’s supreme EKS Brand goggles and arguing that they deserve the credit for his incredible 2015 MX start. No, the pointless title this week is merely a nod to the current name of the group text we have for the PulpMX Collective +Weege as I like to call it. Hey every group needs an outsider, a dissenting voice and for Steve, JT, Moser and I, that is the former author of one of the most visited blogs on the internet, Blogandt (RIP).

It’s not just the fact that Dungey has secured the SX title.

 

Man, there have been times in the past when it was hard to find something to write about but… honestly now isn’t one of them.

 

For a series that now has less drama than your typical late night skin-flick on Skinimax, there is plenty to discuss with your racing buddies. You could start with Dungey winning his 2nd title, 4 years after his first, which happens to be a first. How about the 2nd fastest guy in the 450’s who hasn’t missed a checkered flag but still finds himself nearly 100pts down to the 2015 Champ? Can Eli pinpoint the flaws in either his gameplan or execution? Will he be able to apply them for the outdoor...

With the SX Series on snooze mode, I’ve got some thoughts on RV’s task at hand.

If you think back to the first mumblings of Ryan Villopoto heading to Europe and waging battle on the Grand Prix Motocross Series, there was a lot of laughing, rolling of eyes and immediate dismissals of the notion. It sounded just crazy enough that even the most open-minded moto-fan had to err on the side of doubt and assume it was a random dart thrown at the “what’s RV doing” dartboard.

 

The rumors ebbed and flowed. “RV was going to retire”. “RV was burned out and would forfeit his final...

The fever pitch is pegged in the red… again.

Unfortunately, this discussion is thrust to the forefront every single racing year. Sometimes it’s the closing weeks of preparation when riders succumb to injury before they even line up for the first round. Sometimes it is actually at the first round but whenever it happens, talks of rider safety instantly spring to life and they are heated to put it mildly.

 

I have long been one of the guys saying the power output of the bikes today far exceeds what should try to be contained in a stadium. Displacements need to be addressed. I...

Qualifying for your first Main of the year at round 11 and finishing 21st with a smile.

This one is going to be short and sweet which ironically is quite the opposite of the subject matter who happens to be above average-size and bouncing off the rev limiter in the raditude department.

Adam Enticknap is a prime example of all that is right with the sport of Supercross, all the while traveling the rocky road of struggle. 

He doesn’t have a factory ride, doesn’t dominate qualifying or the LCQ, shit, he isn’t even a shoe-in for fastest privateer but you’d never guess that in a million years because Adam has the absolute best attitude going in the pits. He’s not even the every-man which is what fans usually pull for. He simply has a positive outlook in all situations,. Without question he is a glass half-full guy… I take that back, if you asked him if the glass...
