MOTOCROSS of NATIONS
RedBud – Buchanan, MI – October 6-7, 2018
It wasn’t the result we were looking for from Team USA at the Motocross of Nation – but Dylan Ferrandis stood on top of the podium with his Bell Moto-9 Flex for Team France. This was Team France’s 5th win in a row.
It was a bit muddy at this year’s MXoN… Pretty sure this is a photo of Eli Tomac, who finished 4th overall in the MXGP Class by posting a 4th and 7th in his two motos. Team USA finished 6th overall.
Aaron Plessinger represented Team USA racing in the MX2 division.
AMERICAN FLAT TRACK
Final Round – Meadowlands Mile – East Rutherford, NJ – Oct 7, 2018
In was another podium finish for recently crowned 2018 AFT Twins Champion Jared Mees. Mees and his Indian Scout FTR750 teammates put on another great show for the massive Meadowlands crowd. 2018 has been an incredible year for the American Flat Track series. Congrats on a great season!
New Jersey’s Meadowlands Mile also marked the final race for Kenny Coolbeth. Coolbeth is a former 3-time AMA Grand National Champion winning all three titles aboard a Harley-Davidson. He finished out his career racing the Indian Scout and finishing a solid 7th overall.
Bell Helmets surprised Coolbeth with a custom-painted helmet for his farewell race. The “King of Cool” has been a great champion for the sport of Flat Track – Best of luck, KC, with the next chapter for your life.

It was Brandy Richards once again taking the overall in the Women’s Pro Division. It was another Bell Moto-9 Flex “Podium Perfecto” with Tara Geiger taking 2nd and Lauren Woods finishing 3rd. In fact, the top five women were wearing the Moto-9 Flex… Britney Gallegos finished 4th followed by Jaymie Hajewski. Congrats ladies… Great Job!
Collin Elliot is one of the bright stars in West Coast off-road racing. Elliot picked up a 3rd overall in the Pro 2 Lights division.
BIG 6 GRAND PRIX
Viewfinders Grand Prix – Ridgecrest, CA – October 6, 2018
YES! It was another podium sweep for the Moto-9 Flex in the Women’s Pro Class at the Big 6 Grand Prix this weekend. Looks like right after the WORCS race, the ladies headed down to California to check out another podium.
Tara Geiger was standing on top this time, followed by Kacy Martinez and then Lauren Woods.
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.
The hills of Southern California are well known as the mecca of free riding, and premier locations are considered sacred ground. Rarely are these fiercely protected enclaves of riding paradise exposed to the public. Bell Helmets riders Darryn Durham and Ricky Diaz throw the doors open to one such location, tearing up their SoCal stomping ground like only locals could. Join us as we Run to the Hills, with Darryn, Ricky, and friends turning the natural landscape into the stuff dreams are made of.
