CLS/Monster Energy/Pro Circuit/Kawasaki's Tommy Searle finally scored an overall win in the MX2 class at the GP of France. American Zach Osborne finished second overall with 3-2 finishes, followed by Frenchman Gautier Paulin. Ken Roczen would have likely won the overall, but a crash on the first lap of the second moto kept him from backing up his moto one win.

Nitro Circus descended onto the MGM Grand in Las Vegas this weekend for their one-night-only live show. As you can imagine, there was more insanity than an asylum. Cam Sinclair and Travis Pastrana even threw down side-by-side double backflips. [Photo credit: (c) Garth Milan/Red Bull Content Pool]

A double backflip wasn’t the only leap Travis Pastrana took at the Nitro Circus Live show in Las Vegas. He also asked his girlfriend, pro skateboarder Lyn-Z Adams Hawkins to marry him during the show. Check out some YouTube footy of it below…

Last week we spotted Brett Metcalfe getting in some testing at Milestone MX in Riverside, California, aboard his Rockstar Makita Suzuki. So, we took the opportunity to see how the beginning of the outdoor series has been for him, and what it feels like to be racing again.

If you watched the Freestone National from two weeks ago, you noticed someone different leading the first half of the 450 moto, and that was Troy Lee Designs/Lucas Oil/Honda’s Christian Craig. Making the big step up to the 450 class for the outdoor season, Craig is showing that he has what it takes to run up front in the premier class. We caught up with him at Milestone MX to talk about that race, and what it was like to run up front like that.

It may have been a week off from racing, but many pros took that opportunity to get in some more testing, including Valli Motorsports’ Nick Wey. We spent the day with him and his crew as they got in some suspension testing at Pala Raceway in Pala, California.
