Chaparral's Andrew Short is entering his second year with the formidable Honda team effort. He had some highs and lows throughout the season but finished strong with his signature determination. We'll catch up with Andrew tonight before he blows out the 30 candles on his birthday cake and takes advantage of the brief break from the necessary testing grind that defines this time of year.
Star Racing Yamaha's Copper Webb continued his amateur career domination by collecting six more titles at the 2012 Winter Olympics at Gatorback Cycle Park in Gainesville, Florida last week. Coop is set to make his professional debut next summer at the Lucas Oil AMA Pro Motocross Championship opener at Hangtown and follow the many talented kids that have recently moved up to the big stage. He has an amazing family and support structure around him and we can't wait to see him take the next step in his promising career.
It's impossible not to pull for Eleven 10Mods' Alex Martin after meeting the friendly Minnesota native. He possesses the determination and hard-working qualities that motocross fans always notice and appreciate. Alex is currently living in South Carolina and training at Club MX in preparation for the 2013 250 East Coast SX, and we'll get the latest on that and the big changes for his team next year.
Rock River Powersports' Christina Denney has been a friend of the show from our humble beginnings and one of our A-list family members around here. It's no surprise that she is so well respected in the pits for her work as team manager in such a male dominated sport. Their team also offers amateur support and Christina wanted to get us up to speed on that and the team's plans for 2013.
We wanted to pass along our sincere condolences to Grodzicki family on the passing of their young warrior, Jantz. Godspeed, JG96.
