Josh Hill is expected to be cleared to ride today (Monday, Feb. 13th). Hill said that the extended time off allowed him to heal his lingering injuries and said that he feels stronger now than he did a month ago. The Hart and Huntington rider expects to return as soon as Atlanta or as late as St. Louis.
Small details, like this table cover used by the Hart and Huntington team, may go unnoticed but are some of the most impressive under the team canopy. What looks like a simple green cloth is actually a massive sheet of seat cover material.
Tony Alessi and the MotoConcepts team have one of the more unique pit transporters we have come across this year, as there Yamaha Zuma and trailer combo is a much quicker way to run fuel across the paddock.
AutismMX.com made their presence in the pits known this weekend and many were seen with items showing their support to amp up research on the condition.
Early morning showers hit Qualcomm just before the day began, which left the track slick in some sections. The sunshine baked the extra moisture in and Dirt Wurx worked to keep the track from becoming hard packed.
As you by now know, the whoop section was the great divider in the racing action. The oddly spaced rollers, coupled with the lack of a run in made the fifteen bumps a challenge for all on the track.
Ever wonder how Speed gets the sounds of the racing action to your TV? So did we. In certain areas of the track, there are microphones and yards of cable that pick up the noise from the floor.
How did we learn that technical fact? As we watched the final "C" session of the Lites class, a rider got out of control in the whoops and wound the cable in to his rear wheel. The track crew was forced to cut the wire from the racer's wheel, much to the displeasure of one TV cameraman.
