Monday Kickstart – Lake Elsinore MX 2012
With the final round of the 2012 Lucas Oil Pro Motocross Championship taking place in our Southern California backyard, we hit the pits and track with force to bring you this week’s Kickstart. Anton and Lutes teamed up to make this 10 pager that has everything you would want from Lake Elsinore…
Kyle Chisholm is one of the many riders searching for a team in 2013. After running in the top-10 for the Nationals, Chizz has been in talks with more than a few teams but has nothing confirmed.
Scott Adkins paid close attention to detail for Jeremy Martin’s Star/Valli/Rockstar/Yamaha ride at Elsinore by polishing the frame and swingarm of the YZ250F. Adkins said that with numerous sponsors at the event, everything about his bike needed to be perfect. Total build time came in at nearly 20 hours.
The Hinson clutch cover of Justin Barcia’s MX of Nations Honda CRF has been engraved with the Team USA logo. Contrary to tradition, the three riders competing for the States in Lommel at the end of the month did not race the second motos in their patriotic gear.
Austin Politelli is a monster when it comes to racing at LE. The California privateer claimed the lion’s share of the purse at our Muscle Milk TWMX Race Series round earlier this summer, then ran as high as fifth in the first moto during the National before a mechanical issue forced him to DNF. Politelli rebounded for a 17th in the second moto.
To remind fans they make more than just cars and bike, Honda displayed a 125cc motor, a generator, and this shifter kart that is powered by a CRF250R motor. We’d be lying if we said we weren’t scheming a way to knick it out of the pits.
A closer look at the Honda CRF250R shifter kart motor, its Yoshimura exhaust, and K&N filter.
