-- Smarty’s MC News ‘Mega’ Moto Wrap for October 9, 2012
Yeehaaa! This week we get to check out the winners and losers at the 2012 Honda Australian Junior Motocross Nationals at Coolum and let’s see how Chris Holder faired at the final round of the World Speedway Championship in Poland.
We will also follow Kiwi Paul Whibly’s quest to clinch the 2012 GNCC while EnduroX and the British Motocross Championships are getting close to wrapping up….I have the latest news from the MEC, ASX and Bercy Supercross as well…..and some of the teams have announced their latest rider signings as well.
-- America - MEC Up-Date – October 20 – Sam Boyd Stadium, Las Vegas
We are now only a few weeks away from the Monster Energy Cup and here are the riders who will be contesting each class with three Aussies in the action.
- Track designer Ricky Carmichael has included a ‘Joker Lane’ into the track – it is an extra part of the course that will add around six second per lap and every rider must go through that section at least once per race….and the start is divided into two groups so half of the field will start on one side of the stadium and other half on the opposite side and all will meet a few corners later….I am thinking chaos!!

-- GEICO AMA EnduroCross – Denver
Red Bull KTM factory rider Taddy Blazusiak was back to his dominant ways at the Denver Endurocross to lead the main event in every lap and secure his third victory of the season in front of a packed stadium at the National Western Complex.
The Polish rider who is looking to retain his Endurocross title now has a 31-point lead with three rounds still to go. KTM teammate Mike Brown was third finishing behind second placed Taylor Robert. Blazusiak set the bar in the late afternoon after earning the fastest lap time in the hot lap session. Brown also turned a decent time during the hot laps to earn the fifth fastest time of the evening.
The night program started well for both riders. Brown won the second heat and Taddy, in heat three was fifth at the start, moved into fourth in the first lap and closed in on leader Cody Webb one lap later, passing him in the fire pit area to take the lead. He led the remaining laps to take the heat win and a spot on the main event gate.
Brown, the X-Games EnduroCross gold medallist took the main event holeshot and Taddy was fourth at the first corner, took the lead in the matrix section and never looked back and quickly pulled a comfortable lead and rode a faultless race to the chequered flag.
Meanwhile, Brown battled with Taylor Robert for second position throughout the ten lap main event. The two swapped positions twice in the matrix section with Robert just edging out Brown on the final lap.
- Overall Results: 1, Taddy Blazusiak. 2, Taylor Robert. 3, Mike Brown. 4, Geoff Aaron. 5, Justin Soule. 6, Cory Graffunder. 7, Kyle Redmond. 8, Gary Sutherlin. 9, Wally Palmer. 10. Kyle Calderini

-- Kawasaki Wraps Up Off-Road Program
Kawasaki has followed in Suzuki’s footsteps and dropped all support for riders competing in GNCC, WORC and other forms of Off-Road racing in American and Destry Abbott, who is one of the leading Kawasaki Off-Road riders has aired his feeling about the decision.
"As many of you have already heard, based on the number of emails and phone calls I’ve received today, Kawasaki has made the tough decision to dissolve their Team Green Off-road program! I was extremely heartbroken when I heard the news yesterday, not only for myself, but for my Team Green family and fellow teammates as well!
"I’ve considered everyone I’ve had the pleasure of meeting at Kawasaki like family for the last fifteen years, and I’m extremely sad to see this amazing program come to an end. At this point I’m not quite sure what I’m going to do or what direction I’m going to go, but no matter what I plan on staying in this industry! I’m sure you’ll continue to see me on a Kawasaki no matter what happens! They’re a great company and a great group of people, and I’ll always consider myself a Kawasaki guy!
"I’m still planning on racing next year, and of course I’ll be doing a lot of riding schools to help out with the cost. I’m also working on a few other things, but don’t quite know where that’s going to go yet. Thanks for everyone’s support and I’m looking for sponsors if your interested in helping me out!"

- 200-250cc 13-U15 Yrs: Queensland’s hard charging Jesse Dobson (Kawasaki Australia) took the 200-250cc 13-U15 years title after putting 110 points in the bag and finish 13 points clear of Victorian Wayde Carter (KTM) and Queenslander Caleb Ward (KTM/JWR).
- 200-250rs: The 200-250cc 15 years class was won by Queensland rider Jesse Madden (Yamaha) who didn’t win a race all week but managed to stay consistent to take the title with a final points tally of 60 points.

By the sheer weight of numbers New South Wales collected the Interstate Cup Challenge Trophy ahead of Queensland and Victoria.
Unfortunately young Jeremy Tindall was involved with a crash in the first corner and is currently in the spinal ward in a Brisbane hospital and we got this message though yesterday.
“As everyone may know Jeremy Tyndall had a massive crash at the Aussie titles
and is now in hospital. If everyone could share this post as they will need to
sell their bikes ASAP.
All of our wishes are with the whole family and in particular young Jeremy.
-- ASX News - Two Yanks In – One Aussie Out
The teams are taking shape for opening round of 2012 ASX at Dubbo in country New South Wales on the 13th of October before what many see as the feature round at Phillip Island on the 27th and 28th of October.
Queensland gets a taste of the action at Toowoomba on the 10th of November, with the fourth and final round being held back in New South Wales at Newcastle on the 17th of November.
- GYTR’s Joel Dinsdale is out of ASX after busting his wrist in a freak 1st turn accident at the Australian Junior Motocross Championships at Coolum on Thursday – this is a real pity, Dinsdale was besting Ford Dales qualifying times at the Coolum round of the MX Nationals by almost 2 seconds, and this was during the races, not in any qualifying situation.
“It’s just really disappointing,” said Dinsdale. ”I was being patient in the first turn when a bunch of riders got tangled on the inside of me and before I knew it I was on the ground and instantly knew my wrist was broken, we will now get the wrist right and look to 2013 with Yamaha and the Under 19s.”
- Yank CHRIS PLOUFFE said this in an interview MXA this week: “I’m leaving pretty soon to go to Australia to their Supercross series. I’ll be riding a Husqvarna TC250, so I am going over there to get ready for round one of the series and get some testing in.” Plouffe will join Gavin Faith as the second Yank in the ASX.

-- TEREX Naming Sponsor for ASX - This Press Release came though during the week:
Terex will play a significant part in shaping the popular sport of Supercross, announced today as the new naming-rights sponsor of the upcoming Australian Supercross Championships.
The company’s involvement with the sport stems back to the 2011 national season where its Positrack loaders were used for the construction and maintenance of tracks.
Terex has a long history of supplying products to end customers all over Australia in a wide variety of applications, including the construction, infrastructure, quarrying, mining, shipping, transportation, refining, energy, utility and manufacturing industries.
Reporting in five business segments - Aerial Work Platforms; Construction; Cranes; Material Handling and Port Solutions and Material Processing - Terex has the right piece of equipment for almost every type of jobsite.
“Sponsoring the Australian Supercross Championships is an opportunity we could not pass up - the domestic field of riders rivals anywhere else in the world and it’s a sport that can appeal to a wide range of people,” said Craig Doran of Terex Compact Construction Equipment in Australia.
“As an Australian company it’s important for us to invest in the growth and success of a sport that locals support.”
“Supercross is an exciting and dynamic brand of pure motorsport - we can’t wait to begin working with the Championship promoter IEG to involve the Terex brand with the riders, teams and the fans.”
Yarrive Konsky, Managing Director of IEG, promoters of the Australian Supercross Championships, welcomed Terex to the sport and its position as naming rights sponsor.
“We’re delighted to announce that Terex has joined the sport as a naming rights sponsor - it's fantastic to see a successful local entity such as Terex stepping up to contribute to the growth of this exciting sport,” said Konsky.
“We’ll be working closely with Craig and the entire team at Terex to involve the brand with various marketing and activation activities on the ground at events and on a larger scale throughout the supplier and customer networks.”
The first round of the Terex Australian Supercross Championships will be held at Dubbo on October 13.
The Series will also visit Phillip Island, Toowoomba and Newcastle in its inaugural year under new promoter IEG.
Two of the biggest names in freestyle motocross (FMX) are confirmed to join the billing for the opening round of the Terex Australian Supercross Championships at Dubbo’s Mount Morris Speedway this weekend.
Monster Energy Kawasaki’s Mark Monea and Carlton Dry Honda Thor Racing’s Josh Sheehan will line up alongside fellow X Games competitor Cam Sinclair to put on a series of adrenaline-fuelled FMX demonstrations in between the racing action.
The trio have pioneered some of the most difficult tricks in the sport’s history.
X Games bronze medallist Sheehan and X Games gold, silver and bronze medallist Sinclair make up two of just three riders to execute the double backflip in competition.
For Monea, the man known for the ‘Carry On front-flip variation, this weekend’s event will provide him with a platform to showcase his extended FMX repertoire.
“I am really looking forward to being part of the of the Australian Supercross Championships,” Monea said. “I have been doing a lot of practice since Nitro Circus, and have been working on my other freestyle tricks.
“These events will give me a good chance to showcase my FMX skills, I don’t want to be known for just one crazy trick. Australia really is producing the top echelon of the sport now so it is great for our regional fans to have the chance to see us in action.
“We all live and practice in regional centres but don’t often get the chance to perform in these areas.”

-- Freestyle To Feature at ASX

-- Europe - 2013 Bercy Supercross - November 9/10/11
The annual Paris Supercross will be held on November 9-11 at the Palais Omnipsort de Bercy and the American riders will be Justin Brayton, Eli Tomac, Jake Weimer, Kyle Chisholm, Wil Hahn and Tyler Villopoto (yes, Ryan’s brother who raced in Canada this year).
The French team will be Christophe Pourcel (on a KTM 350….huh?), Gregory Aranda, Cedric Soubeyras, Fabien Izoird, Nico Aubin, Cyrille Coulon, Valentin Teillet, Tim Gajser, Josse Sallefranque and the ‘has been’ Eric Sorby.
Unfortunately there will be no Australians at the event as it is on the same weekend of the third round of ASX.
Tom Pages, Levi Sherwood, Taka Higashino, Andre Villa and Edgar Torronteras will entertain the crowd with their world class freestyle.
I will keep you posted as more news of this iconic event comes to hand but if the promoters think that Pourcel is their main draw card or will be competitive they are in trouble.
-- 2012 World Speedway Championship – Final Round – GP of Poland
It all came down to the wire at the GP of Poland with Aussie Chris Holder entering the final round with just a two point lead over Nicki Pederson who is turn had an eight point lead over Greg Hancock.
I got up at a sparrow’s fart on Sunday morning and watched the results come through on the WSC web site and this is how it went down: Hancock and Pederson were the first of the title hopefuls out on track in heat two but both were beaten by former World Champion Tomaz Gollob who nudged home ahead of Hancock then Pederson.
Chris Holder started the night in the best possible way with a solid win in heat four ahead of Frederick Lingren and Jason Crump who was competing in his final GP.
Holder then blitzed heat six while Hancock finished dead last and scored no points in the same heat and in heat seven Pedersen could only manage third so with all of the title holder banking two rides Holder has six points to Pedersen and Hancock’s two…so far so good for the Aussie.
Hancock score two more points in heat nine with a close second to Antonio Lindback before Holder finished third in heat 11 and in the very next heat Pedersen scored three points with a win while Holder bounced back to win heat 13 over Pedersen.
Hancock scored maximum points in heat 16 so with all of our top runner having had four riders each Holder now has 10 points to Pedersen and Hancock’s seven. We are getting close to another Aussie World Champion folks!
Heat 18 saw Pedersen score just one point with a third place before Hancock scored two points with a second in heat 19 and Holder just did the same in heat 20. We are going to the semi-finals with Holder on 157 championship points, Pedersen on 151 and Hancock on 144.
Gollob win the first semi-final ahead of Hancock and now the second semi with Holder taking on Pedersen and YEEHAA!! Holder wins the first semi-final ahead of Antonio Lindback and is into the final while Pedersen could only manage third and won’t go to the final. HOLDER is the champion!!!!!………just did a little dance around my lounge room.
The final is now on and you won’t believe it but his bike shit itself…... Lindback takes the win from Gollob and Hancock.
"It’s unbelievable. I’m so happy right now. You race speedway to be the world champion. You always believe you can be the champ and not many guys get to do it," Holder said.“I’ve done it now and it’s unreal. I’m pretty proud of myself that I got this far and I couldn’t have done it without my family, girlfriend, brothers and mechanics.
“You can only imagine how much pressure I had coming up to this meeting with me being in such a good position at the last round. I was trying to stay cool and not think about it. You’ve just got to try and stay calm and it went off well, to come out for the semi-final with me and Nicki next to each other was a massive pressure for me. That was the biggest race of my life. It obviously didn’t go to plan the first time, but I made a better start the second time and got there. I’m over the moon. I’m so happy.”
"I’m happy with my season," Pedersen said. "I’ve been handed wild cards for the last two years and it didn’t work out the way I wanted. This year I wanted to do well. I wanted to be in the top three. That was my aim and I made it. I’m back where I want to be and I can’t wait for next year but congratulations to Chris. I raced him all I could all the way to the end. But fair play, he finished it off in Torun.”
Hancock was disappointed to come up short in his bid for title No.3. "I did everything I could to retain the title and had a good run at the beginning, but I slipped up in the last couple of rounds and I have no excuses. It’s tough out there. You’ve got to keep your focus and sometimes things drop off," Hancock said. “But I’ve got to take my hat off and say congratulations to our new world champion Chris Holder. What an effort the guy put up all year.”
- TORUN SGP SCORES: 1 Antonio Lindback 19, 2 Tomasz Gollob 21, 3 Greg Hancock 13, 4 Chris Holder 15, 5 Martin Vaculik 12, 6 Emil Sayfutdinov 11, 7 Nicki Pedersen 9, 8 Maciej Janowski 8, 9 Fredrik Lindgren 8, 10 Chris Harris 6, 11 Hans Andersen 5, 12 Jason Crump 5.

-- Boog Joins Dean Ferris at ICE1 Racing?
World Championship motocross team ICE1Racing has signed former Factory Kawasaki rider Xavier Boog for the 2013 season, with the goal of breaking into the top five in the MX1 overall classification and aim for several GP podiums.
The French rider who finished seventh in the World Championships this season is very happy to have the opportunity to be able to continue his bid gor World Championship glory with the new team which was only formed at the beginning of 2011.
”I am very happy to join the ICE1Racing team." stated Boog "Although the team is fairly new in the World Championship circus, they are experienced and the team knows what it takes to win”
The team has taken a new direction for 2013, moving the teams base to Belgium and concentrating their efforts fully on the MX1 class under the guidance of new team manager Antti Pyrhönen.
ICE1Racing reached an agreement with the Finnish motocross racer who recently finished his career. Pyrhönen takes the lead as the team manager for ICE1Racing with confidence and wants to take the motocross team up a step.
”Our plan is to move the team operations to Belgium and concentrate fully on the MX1 class in the World Championships. We want to reach the top in all areas, which requires the full attention of the whole team”, commented Pyrhönen.
ICE1RACING motocross owner, former Fourmula one world champion Kimi Räikkönen
is confident that his new look team will be able to reach the goal he as set for
them in 2013
At this point in time it is uncertain who else will line up for the ICE1Racing team in 2013, or if 2012 Australian team member Dean Ferris will be returning to the team next year.
- Smarty’s Thoughts: I hear that Ferris has been shafted by this team and will ride for KTM in Australia next year (and I personally hope this is true)…..third hand news but I had no choice sorry. This could be a good move for Ferris because a championship in Australia for KTM could evolve to a GP ride in the future – and for mind he would be the only rider to give Ben Townley a hard time over the full season next year.
-- Maxxis British Motocross Nationals – Final Round – Little Silver
The final round of the Maxxis British Motocross Championship proves to be a fantastic day for the HM Plant KTM UK race team as Kevin Strijbos secures the MX1 British Championship title while team-mate Elliott Banks-Browne turns a 16 point deficit into a five point advantage to take the MX2 title too making it a double celebration for Roger Magee’s hard working squad.
Despite weather conditions being chilly the race action at the Little Silver circuit is red hot all day. Strijbos knows a fourth place in race one will secure the MX1 title and when he crosses the line in second the team are ready and waiting to shower him with champagne. Despite having already wrapped up the title Kevin rockets to a race win in moto two before ending the day with a third as he rides shotgun for his MX2 team-mate in the season-closing mixed-capacity moto.
- Kevin Strijbos had this to say at the trophy presentation. “The whole year was pretty good for me. It was good that I could wrap up the title in the first race and not just for me but for the whole team too. This is my first national title in the MX1 class so I’m very happy. I want to thank everyone – the whole team, my mechanic, my girlfriend and also Harry Everts who has helped a lot throughout the year. I’m happy for everyone and it’s good we could pull it off.”
- MX1 Overall result: 1 Shaun Simpson (Monster Energy Yamaha) 72, 2 Kevin
Strijbos (HM Plant KTM UK) 67, 3 Brad Anderson (Honda) 52, 4 Gert Krestinov
(MVR-D Honda) 45, 5 Alex Snow (Oakleaf Kawasaki) 43, 6 Kristian Whatley (KTM)
39, 7 Nico Aubin (Buildbase Honda) 36, 8 Luke Hawkins (KTM) 28, 9 Ross
Rutherford (Pendrich KTM) 26, 10 Jamie Law (D3 Racing KTM) 26
The final race of the championship blasts into turn one with EBB grabbing the holeshot on his 250 SX-F ahead of the field and from there Banks-Browne powered away from the pack until he starts to tense up mid-moto as he knows the championship is within his grasp. Despite losing some time to the chasing pack and also slipping off on the last lap Elliott is able to slot home in second to take the overall win on the day as well as first in the final series standings which makes it two championship titles for the team.
Elliott Banks-Browne was obviously wrapped. “Coming into the weekend I knew there was the possibility that I could win the championship but I never thought it would happen so I’m so happy! In the first race I crashed but came through again pretty easy and won. Then in the second race I was riding well and leading quite comfortable when I crashed twice and the second time the electric-start button got stuck so I lost a lot of time because I had to bump start the bike. In the last race I crashed on the start but luckily they red flagged it because some of the gates didn’t drop properly then on the restart I got the holeshot and was leading until I got a bit tight halfway through and Simpson came past. On the last lap I crashed and I was panicking but I didn’t lose any places and when I crossed the line I knew I was champion. I’m so happy but it hasn’t really sunk in yet.”

-- Here are the Championships that are finished for 2012.
– Just for a minute, think about all of the miles travelled to get to each event, the bike preparation for each and every ride or race, the personal training involved at 5am, the ‘shit hit the fan’ moments, the injuries, the battles, the wins, the losses, the phenomenal jubilation of victory and the heart break of defeat……ah, that is why we love racing dirt bikes……
