Monday Kickstart : October 8, 2012

Welcome to this week’s edition of Monday Kickstart. As you will see over the coming pages, there is no such thing as an “off-season” for our sport. With riders making changes, events taking place around the world, and the need to always stay up on one’s game, the days between the final round of the Nationals and the first round of Supercross are just as busy as the rest of the year.

Last week, numerous stories flooded the web, as Broc Tickle confirmed he will be on Hart & Huntington Suzuki with a simple Instagram photo, ONE Industries extended their contract with Justin Brayton, and Adam Cianciarulo made his career plan for the coming year clear (B class at Mini O’s, A class for spring amateur nationals through Loretta’s, but a pro debut at Hangtown is possible.)

Showing how much social networking has changed the world, Broc Tickle announced he signed with Hart & Huntington Suzuki with an Instagram photo.

The AMA also released the official number list for 2013, ending the speculation on who would take which numbers. Starting some Internet chatter was Blake Baggett’s pick of the now-open number four, which was given a brief hiatus following Ricky Carmichael’s retirement. The full list can be seen here…

Making up this week’s Kick is a recap of the day we spent with Rockstar Suzuki’s Davi Millsaps, in only his fourth day on the bike. Also new to the team this year will be FMF Racing exhausts, replacing Yoshimura.

While Swap was in Florida a few weeks back, he grabbed shots of Chad Reed’s 2013 Honda CRF450R and sat down with Kyle Chisholm for a “Coffee With…” interview.

There is much more to see, so start clicking and stay tuned to TWMX for more.
