WHAT’S NEW ON THE EVE OF THE OUTDOOR SERIES

Ryan Dungey Eli TomacWith Ryan Dungey out of the picture, Eli Tomac (3) is the undisputed favorite to win the 2017 AMA 450 National Championship.

Davi MillsapsRocky Mountain KTM’s Davi Millsaps will skip the 450 Nationals to have his wrists operated on. Davi hasn’t raced the AMA Nationals since 2012.

davalos450classMartin Davalos will move to the 450 class at Hangtown. Davalos has been a 250 rider for 12 years, but has limited 450 experience. This is his chance to shine on the Rockstar FC450.

michaelMOSIMANMichael Mosiman will make his AMA Pro debut at Hangtown in the 250 class. He will be replacing Martin Davalos on the Rockstar Husqvarna team.

Christian CraigChristian Craig (48) will move from the Geico Honda 250 team to the Factory HRC Honda team as Ken Roczen’s replacement for the AMA 450 Nationals. Few remember that Christian Craig started as a 450 rider and raced his first 450 National on a YZ450F in 2009. Christian has raced the 450 Nationals in 2009, 2011, 2102 and 2014—plus two Supercross races as in fill-in in 2017. His best 450 National finish was a 5th.

Chad ReedChad Reed will not be racing the Nationals. His deal with Yamaha for 2017 was for Supercross-only. Will be be back at Team Yamaha in 2018? That’s up in the air, but sources says they if they re-sign him it won’t be for his results, but for his popularity with the fans.

• WHAT THE MXA WRECKING CREW IS UP TO THIS WEEKEND

KTMTPIFUELINJECTCUTAWAY1The MXA wrecking crew had to split up this weekend. We had three distinctly cool things to do that took place thousands and hundreds of miles apart. Daryl Ecklund flew to Austria to ride the KTM 250 TPI fuel-injected bike at Erzberg. This is a photo of the cutaway KTM fuel-injected 250XC-W TPI engine.

dennistwo-strokeMXA sent three Pro test riders to the Hangtown to race the 125 two-stroke Dream Race. All three — Dennis Stapleton (above), Justin Muscutt and Brian Medeiros — were accepted to the invitation-only 125 Dream race and all three qualified for the Glen Helen 250/Open Two-Stroke Challenge race by making the top 20 at the MTA World Two-Stroke Championship Pro class in April.

JODYtest1Jody Weisel (24) never wants to go anywhere to watch other people race — if it means that he can’t race himself. So, he volunteered to stay at home to test forks (by racing with them at Glen Helen). Plus, he has lots of official duties revolving around the Glen Helen 250/450 National track before next week.

• MXA INTERVIEW: JEREMY ALBRECHT ON JGR & THE NATIONALS

JGRalbrechtJeremy Albrecht.

THE AMA NATIONALS KICK OFF THIS WEEKEND AT HANGTOWN. WHAT’S THE STATUS ON EACH OF THE JGRMX SUZUKI TEAM RIDERS? Matt Bisceglia will be riding for the first time on Thursday. He’s excited to get back started. Weston Peick has been riding for three weeks. He’s feeling pretty good. Last week I saw him ride at Glen Helen in California, and he’s doing better than expected. Weston obviously won’t be 100% as far as fitness when the gate drops this weekend at Hangtown, but he’s feeling up to the challenge. Kyle Cunningham is excited to have a deal for the Nationals. He’ll be riding in the 250 class. Kyle did well in Supercross as a fill-in, and since Bisceglia isn’t ready to be firing at the first round we’ll have Cunningham on board for the full series. Justin Barcia is back home training at Millsaps Training Facility, and apparently he’s been riding a bunch. I haven’t seen him ride lately, but when he was up here in North Carolina a while ago he looked really impressive. Justin usually picks it up during the outdoor series, so I’m excited to see what he can do starting this weekend.

REPORTS ARE THAT WESTON PEICK HAS BEEN LOGGING THE MOST LAPS AT THE SoCAL PRACTICE TRACKS. THAT’S A GOOD SIGN. I was happy to see how well he was riding when I was out in California last week. The guy has only been on the bike for a short time after being sidelined for three months. It’s nice knowing that Weston wants to race, even if he’s not 100%. Matt Bisceglia wants to race, as well, but he’s been out even longer than Peick has. Matt is coming back from two injuries. For Weston, he’s dealing with blisters on his hands and things like that. Peick is actually a month ahead of schedule from what doctors first thought, so he’s happy about that. I’m excited that he’s going to be at the first round.

JGRteam

IS JUSTIN BARCIA FIRED UP TO SCORE TOP RESULTS? Justin is capable of winning races and being on the podium, but like any sport, it’s very tough at this level. The mental game plays into it a lot. The Supercross season hasn’t gone, the last few years, how any of us would have thought. There was definitely bad luck with some things going wrong, but that’s part of racing. It’s how you bounce back from the adversity that makes you stronger. Justin has bounced back from worse deals than this, so I feel like he can succeed. I noticed that every Supercross round where it was rutty and technical, like Seattle and Daytona, he rode his best. Watching him ride outdoors during our test session was impressive. So, yes, we’re expecting Justin to be like he has been every other year, if not better. I’m excited to see the riders on the Suzuki race bikes. Everyone knows how well the bikes handle. Outdoors, where you really notice a difference in motorcycle performance, we should have the advantage.

JGRcunninghamKyle Cunningham.

RECAP THE JGR SUZUKI TEAM FOR HANGTOWN. Right now it’s Justin Barcia and Weston Peick in the 450 class, and Kyle Cunningham in the 250 class. Matt Bisceglia is shooting for High Point, so then we’ll have two 450 guys and two 250 guys. The strange thing is that I haven’t had four guys on the team for very long this season. Once Phil Nicoletti is ready to come back I’ll have to figure something out, but the way our season has been going I’m taking things week by week.

HOW HAS THE RELATIONSHIP WITH SUZUKI BEEN? It’s been remarkable. Suzuki has been incredibly helpful and supportive. The same can be said for Yoshimura. We put the team deal together late in the year, and a lot of people had to jump through hoops. They put in the extra work to make it happen, and I’m fortunate for their efforts. Even the guys on our team had to log the hard hours, because they were ready to go racing with what we had. Initially it was hard on everyone, but long term this is the right direction for us. We are happy with where things are headed. Obviously, we wish our results were better. Fortunately, Suzuki understands how the sport is. There are other teams that in some ways have had things worse off. That’s how it goes. We’ve done the best job we could with fill-in guys.

JGRbiscelgiaPhil Nicoletti.

SUPERCROSS WAS NOT KIND TO THE JGRMX RIDERS. I can outright state that I’ve never been so prepared at the beginning of a season, only for things to change so drastically. I had it set up so Bisceglia would ride the 450 if we needed him in Supercross, and the same went for Nicoletti. Then we went to the first race and already needed a fill-in rider. We worked through it, though. Jake Weimer was willing to jump in for four rounds, and that turned into racing the whole series. We gave Cade Autenrieth the opportunity to compete in his first-ever Supercross races, and in his second race he finished 13th. That’s pretty special.

We took some chances and did things differently than some people thought we should, but through it all Suzuki was supportive. I cleared all decisions with Suzuki and had Monster Energy sign off, as well. It’s important to keep all of our sponsors in the loop and provide the best exposure possible with the bad hand of cards we were dealt. Through it all I thought everything on the team side looked great. The bikes performed exceptionally. We do expect bigger things coming down the road, and I believe results will be better outdoors.

• THE 100% MOTOCROSS TARIFF WAR GETS A NEW PLAYER
beeftariff

When Robert Lighthizer was confirmed as the new U.S. Trade Representative, there was hope that the proposed 100% tariff on motorcycles under 500cc would get a fresh review by the new government official in charge. In response to the appointment, the American Motorcyclist Association (AMA) sent a letter to  Robert Lighthizer demanding that he remove European motorcycles from a tariff proposal related to U.S. beef exports. The AMA also called on its members to inundate Lighthizer with their objections to a plan to place a 100% tariff on motorcycles imported from the European Union with an engine size between 51cc and 500cc. The European motorcycles were included in a long list of items that would be the subject of tariffs as part of a long-running dispute between U.S. beef producers and the European Union. The Office of the U.S. Trade Representative stated publicly that motorcycles were included because they hoped the outrage of motorcyclists would give the U.S. leverage over foreign governments.

“Those who will suffer the most from this proposed tariff are the Americans who use small-displacement motorcycles and scooters for outdoor recreation and urban riding,” AMA President and CEO Rob Dingman wrote to the trade representative. “These are products that are not offered by American manufacturers. A substantial portion of AMA membership includes riders who own and ride motorcycles of 500cc or smaller displacement, including trail bikes for youths and adults, enduro bikes, dual-sport motorcycles, entry-level street motorcycles, scooters and others. The 500cc-or-lower category of motorcycle also is used in a significant portion of the AMA’s more than 3,000 sanctioned competition events enjoyed by hundreds of thousands annually.”

“In America, the majority of motorcycles under 500cc are sold through small, independently owned shops. The collection of small- to medium-sized dealerships in the United States contributes to the employment of a substantial number of Americans. These dealerships, while small in size, employ individuals for motorcycle sales, aftermarket equipment sales, clothing and merchandise sales, vehicle maintenance and repairs and general dealership operations. “Instead of viewing the American motorcycling community as pawns with an imagined grassroots reach far beyond our shores, the USTR needs to grasp the significant hardships this tariff will cause to hardworking, everyday tax-paying Americans,” Dingman wrote.

MOTORCYCLE AD OF THE WEEK: TONY D BUSINESS MAN

TONYDMXLGOGGLESThree-time 250 National Champion Tony D was the first rider to fully monetize his fame. He no only had his own gear line, his own boots and an MXL goggle deal, but he was among the first riders to demand changes to his contracts—including a clause that insured that if he was selected for the MXDN team that the company would pay.

MXA PRODUCT SPOTLIGHT: PRO CIRCUIT AIR-TO-SPRING CONVERSION KIT

Conversion_Kit_Cap_High-ResFor riders that prefer a more traditional spring system over air forks, Pro Circuit is now offering a simple spring hybrid conversion cartridge kit that can be easily dropped into your WP AER 48 Air Fork or Showa TAC Air Fork*. The fork cap on this conversion kit comes with an air valve that can be used to add just a touch of air to make the fork a little more progressive through the stroke for the faster, more aggressive riders, or even to compensate for special conditions, such as a mud race. It can also be run at zero pressure for the riders that don’t want to mess with adding air in their forks. The kit also offers easy spring preload adjustment without taking the fork all the way apart, letting the fork ride a little higher or lower when needed. This hybrid fork spring system is 100% made in the USA and is available for the following applications: 2015-2017 Honda CRF250R 2015-2017 Kawasaki KX450F 2016 1/2-2017 KTM SX 125, 250/350/450 SX-F 2015-2017 Suzuki RM-Z450 (*Fork spring sold separately).
