DVS Moto Mouth Contest


Our buddy Dano Legere from DVS Shoe Company rolled into the TransWorld Motocross offices the other day with a tricked-out 2006 Honda CR250R, complete with a cool set of DVS Shoe Company graphics and a laundry list of aftermarket parts from all of DVS’s affiliates. To our surprise, he asked us to help give the thing away! Anyone who knows or knows of Dano, though, should already be well aware of the fact that he is a strange dude.
