Well, we’ve finally gone and done it: TransWorld Motocross has a podcast show! Welcome to episode 1…please leave any show ideas and/or constructive criticism for us, below. Enjoy!
Anaheim 1 is less than eight weeks away and for the first time since moving up to the 450 class, Malcolm Stewart is preparing for the season with a solid ride. Well, sort of. The Motoconcepts Honda team has been supporting Mookie through the off-season with the promise of a full-time ride for the 2019 Monster Energy Supercross Championship if he A: can attract an outside sponsor to help offset the expense of supporting him, and B: hire a trainer and get into the best physical shape of his career. Thus far, it looks like both requirements are panning out, as Team Manager Tony Alessi told us last week that the money part of the equation is coming together, and Malcolm has been busting his butt with trainer Gareth Swanepoel. Malcolm has been one of the most popular riders in the pits since he turned pro, and the former 250 West Coast Supercross Champion has always been a good friend of mine, so he was an easy choice for the first-ever episode of the Swapmoto Live Podcast, presented by Ogio.
