HAVE YOU SEEN THE NEW MXA: JAM-PACKED FULL OF BIKE TESTS, TECH ARTICLES & THINGS YOU NEED TO KNOW|Motocross Action Magazine
The headlines on the cover of the May 2018 issue only hint at all the stories that are inside.
This isn’t the typical Jeremy McGrath interview. No questions about his favorite color, what’s on his playlist or who he thinks will win next week’s race. Nope! Just questions about the special relationship between SuperMac and the Anaheim 1 Supercross. He owned the place. He tell you why he was so good there.
Do you race a 2018 Yamaha YZ450F? Want insider info on it? MXA took 26-time World Vet Champion Doug Dubach’s YZ450F away from him and raced it, tested it and poured over it. Doug knows a thing or two about YZ450Fs—since he was the test rider who developed it.
There is a guy on the internet who will answer all of your tech questions, but his answers would be better if he actually owned a bike. Why risk faulty info from an unknown source when the MXperts are here to help you. We not only own motocross bikes, but we have at least one of every brand-new 2018 bike in our workshop.
This month’s Classic Iron is the 1975 CZ 250 Falta Replica. Jaroslav Falta was the 250 Grand Prix racer who almost rode this bike to fame and glory. “Almost” is the operative word. Note the air shocks.
Yeah, yeah, yeah, we know that the majority of modern motocrossers don’t give a hill of beans about technical stories on how their bike works, but we keep writing them anyway. If you ever wondered about the tortured ife of a piston, read this.
You don’t read tests of 450 four-strokes from Italian boutique builder TM Motorcycle every day. These bikes are rare—and although we’ve tested them before, we never came to terms with their Euro setup. Guess what? We loved this year’s TM MX450-FI.
We test the latest brakes from Brembo, Magura and the KTM factory against each other. We were surprised by the results.
Do you remember when we tested Chad Reed’s 2004 Factory Yamaha YZ250 two-stroke? We do and we flashback to show you exactly what we thought of it 14 years ago.
Supercross is almost over, which is a good time to take a look back at all the players that made it an exciting and traumatic series.
