Monday Kickstart

RUMOR OF THE DAY

The 250 class of the AMA Outdoor Nationals is shaping up like a true 250cc class, from sources within the industry. Strokes will NOT matter. Also, rumor has it that U.K.-transplant and MDK/KTM rider Tommy Searle will run a 250 two-stroke. How rad would that be?!

ASTERISK CHARITY RIDE

This past Saturday was the Asterisk Mobile Medical Center Charity Mountain Bike Ride in Vail Lake, CA. The event was put on by Mike Sleeter with the intentions of giving a little back to Doc Bondar and the Asterisk’s crew for all of their hard work. “Doc Bodnar and his crew have helped me out more than enough at all of the races, and I wanted to pay them back somehow, so I decided to organize this event,” said Sleeter. Doc Bodnar, Rookie Sorenson, Justin Brayton, Erin Normoyle, Victor Sheldon, and Daniel Reardon were just a few of the participants on hand. Our good buddy Will Topete was on hand on Saturday and was kind enough to share some of his photos of the event.

YAMAHA TT-R FUN DAY

Tim Olson of Yamaha played host to the 2009 TT-R Fun day this weekend, which was held at Fox Racing’s mini moto track. The event was an opportunity for the industry to play around on the 2009 TT-R’s and ride Fox’s exclusive track. Overall, the event was a success and everybody seemed to enjoy themselves.
