A HUGE shout out to Adam Cianciarulo for winning his first overall Pro Motocross event. AC is a great guy and word on the street is he signed a two-year extension with the Pro Circuit Kawasaki team.

The ISDE starts next week and Bell Helmets has a lot of athletes attending, including Mrs. Kacy Coy.

Joining Kacy at the ISDE will be Tayla Jones. Tayla has been racing and training here in the USA – winning almost everything she enters – but will be racing on behalf of Australia next week in France.
Check out her custom-painted Moto-9 Flex.

The Moto-9 Flex is the most advanced helmet we've ever made, designed to manage linear and rotational energy to the head in certain low, mid, and high-speed impacts. The Moto-9 Flex is quickly setting a new level for rider protection in motocross and off-road racing.

Since its introduction back in 1967, the Bell Star has long represented the standard in head protection. Revered as the first full-face helmet on the market, the Bell Star inspired an industry to pursue the science of head protection. That obsession with helmet innovation continues today.
