Three Fast Yanks in For TBC

Three of America’s fastest flat track racers, Henry Wiles, Sammy Halbert and Jared Mees have all been locked in for the fifth running of the Troy Bayliss Classic in Taree which is scheduled for the 21st of January at the revamped Taree Motorcycle Club facility.

Wiles has incredibly won the Preoria TT 12 times in a row and is a multiple AMA Flat Track Champion while Mees is the 2009, 2012, 2014 and 2015 AMA Grand National Champion as well as the 2016 X Games Gold Medallist and Halbert was AMA Rookie of the Year on 200 and won the AMA Grand National Singles Championship in 2011.

Changes to AMA Supercross Racing Schedule

This is a pretty cool idea, the 2017 AMA Supercross race schedule will now feature timed races in both the 250 and 450 classes so when the action starts in January the heats and LCQ races will be a 5-minute plus 1 race while the 250SX final will feature a 15-minute plus one lap format instead of the typical 15-lap main event and the 450SX class will be 20 minutes plus one lap instead of 20 laps.

So why was this necessary? Well, there were some rounds that saw the 450SX 20 lap main events completed in less than 15 minutes so this new schedule will be fairer for riders and the massive fan base alike. “We believe this change will bring the fitness element more into play and provide more excitement for our fans,” said senior director of supercross operations Dave Prater in a statement.


Two Aussies Set for American Yamaha Support Teams

Four support teams have been announced for the 2017 AMA MX and SX season with 12 bLU cRU riders ready to race aboard the Yamaha YZ450F and YZ250F machines – below are the teams and official blurb on each and you will see Aussie stars Dan Reardon and Hayden Mellross among the official rider list.

RV Extends Relationship with Kawasaki

Kawasaki have anounced a continued relationship with Ryan Villopoto. Villopoto joined the Kawasaki family at the age of 14 as a member of Monster Energy Kawasaki Team Green. He spent his entire professional career, highlighted by 10 AMA Supercross and Motocross Championships, competing aboard Kawasaki KX motorcycles.

“It means a lot to me to be able to continue working with Kawasaki,” said Villopoto. “I’ve been with them for a long time and being around everyone is like being with family. Now that my racing career is over I’ve been able to go out and ride other Kawasaki products and I can’t wait to get on some dual-sport rides and on the new stand-up Jet Ski next spring!”

Jarvis and Bolt for Husqvarna

Rockstar Energy Husqvarna Factory Racing will see extreme enduro star Graham Jarvis joined by the team’s newest recruit Billy Bolt, with the British duo set to compete in 2017 aboard Husqvarna TE 300 machinery.

Under the guidance of team manager Andreas Hölzl the two official Rockstar Energy Husqvarna Factory Racing riders enter the new season with the goal of maintaining Husqvarna Motorcycles’ dominant status in extreme enduro racing.

Enjoying a stellar season that saw him top the overall podium at Erzberg, Romaniacs, Ukupacha, GetzenRodeo and recently at the Roof of Africa, Jarvis has his sights set on keeping his winning momentum going in 2017. The highly experienced racer will lead the team into what’s promising to be another thrilling season of extreme enduro competition.

Rockstar Energy Husqvarna Factory Racing’s extreme enduro squad is completed by 19-year-old Billy Bolt. Switching from a promising career in the World Trials Championship the young Brit took the extreme enduro world by surprise in 2016 with his impressive fifth place result at his very first ErzbergRodeo. Combining acute technical skills with a great willingness to learn, Bolt will be aiming high during his first season as a member of Rockstar Energy Husqvarna Factory Racing.

Australian KTM Off-Road Team Shake-Up

This week has been a big week for the KTM Enduro Racing Team and Desert Racing Team Manager with Ben Grabham quitting and being replaced by Glen Kearney. Grabham is off to Italian manufacturer Beta where he will head up their off-road racing efforts in Australia.

Tye Simmonds has announced his retirement, and Daniel ‘Chucky’ Sanders has moved on. It is hoped that Sanders may score World Enduro level gig with KTM in Europe.

Daniel Milner and Lyndon Snodgrass move on to Orange machinery for 2017.

Ben Grabham – KTM Enduro Racing Team Manager

“My KTM association has been some of the best years of my life, both racing and Team Managing. I’m very grateful to have had the chance to work with Jeff and everyone who’s part of the KTM team, either in head office in Perth, or with guys like Toby, who went from being fellow competitors, to riders for me, to friends that I will have forever. Unfortunately all good things come to an end at some stage or another. I started doing Australian championships as a rider when I was 11, and it’s been a long slog since then. I’ve just got the chance to head off in a slightly different direction that will allow me to spend some more time with the family, so it will be nice to be away from the race team and learn some other things. It’s great to be able to leave on such good terms and after such a fantastic season.”

“It’s something that’s always been in the back of my mind, to come and ride KTM, being such a strong team here in Australia in both desert and off-roads. I’ve looked up to the team since Wonka ran it with Toby and the boys and it’s a big move for me after being with another brand for the whole of my pro career. I’m really excited to get the opportunity to ride these bikes. KTM is massive all over the world and last year in America they had a really strong team in the GNCCs, and they have a really strong team at world championship level as well. Eventually I want to get to Europe and race there, and I think with KTM there is a better chance to make that happen. It was a bit of a bummer to lose my A4DE title this year and it’s made me hungry to come and win it back next year on the new bike. The bike is unreal to be honest it so light and manoeuvrable compared to what I’m used to and it handles really well. I got my bike a week ago and I already feel at home on it. At the moment I’m switching my training between the 450 EXC-F and the 350 EXC-F, and right now I’m probably leaning towards the 450 for just that little bit more power, but I really enjoy both the bikes. I’m also really excited to be working with GK, I’ve looked up to that guy my whole career, I have so much respect for him, I’ve enjoyed racing with him and now to be able to work with him, it’s going to be a really cool thing. I think it can be a really good team. Lyndon lives only an hour away from me, and it will be cool to have a young guy like him on the team that I can help and lead by example. The way GK was an example to me.

Lyndon Snodgrass

“It’s awesome to get this opportunity. I can’t wait to get out there and work with the team next year. It’s been in the works for a while, so it’s good to finally get it happening. KTM has had a lot of dominance in the off-road scene with Chucky, Tye and Toby, so it’s definitely a great team and I’m excited to be a part of it. I’m looking forward to working more closely with Glenn, he’s got a lot of knowledge and I get along well with Dan Milner too, so to have him as a teammate is pretty cool.We haven’t nailed down what bike I will be riding yet, but I’m sure we’ll have that worked out early next year. I’ve made some big improvements this year and I want to continue to do so next year, and being on this team will make that a lot easier. I like doing well and it’s great that I’ve been able to better myself this year. Now I want to keep building until one day hopefully we are at the top.

Glenn Kearney – 2017 KTM Enduro Racing Team Manager

“I’m really excited to have the team locked in and all sorted before the New Year comes. We are looking to do big things with Daniel and bringing in Lyndon Snodgrass is pretty exciting, to have that younger element in the team that we can try and nurture and mentor him along a little bit. He’s a young guy that’s super keen and prepared to put in the hard yards to make things happen, and he’s got some amazing speed in the muddy conditions and the sand so we’ll be looking to help him improve himself on certain surfaces that he may have lacked in.  But I think it’s a good combination and it should bring a nice dynamic to the team, having that aggressive, win-at-all-costs attitude that Milner brings, and then a young guy that’s keen and eager to learn, it should be a good balance. I’m really excited to work with the both of them. I pursued Milner pretty heavily, he was a guy that I wanted to work with, and I believe he wanted to work with me as well. So it’s exciting looking to the future.”.

Jeff Leisk – KTM General Manager

“Ben’s done an outstanding job and achieved an incredible number of results in the time that has been with us, both as a rider and as a Team Manager. We want to thank him very, very much. He succeeded at both absolutely. Ben has always been an open book with his knowledge and information in terms of trying to develop the next riders along, and I think that was his hallmark and what helped us to build such a strong effort. Toby and Daniel would thank Ben for some of their successes no doubt. We are sad to see him go, but we wish him the best. Obviously with Chucky leaving it left a pretty big hole for us to fill, so it’s exciting news that we have signed Daniel. As a company, we are really thrilled about the fact that both Toby and Chucky have gone on to bigger and better things. Daniel (Milner) had hoped that his American ride would lead to the WEC in Europe, but that never eventuated, and for next year he has become available to ride in Australia. At the same time I think he has always wanted to come on board with us but the timing has never been quite there. This time around though, the stars have aligned and we have a spot for him and the budget for him. I think he will be very happy on a KTM. I think is really going to enjoy the product and all the support that goes along with it, and I think we can put together a really good environment for him, particularly with Glenn on board. We don’t know for sure what he will be riding yet, whether it’s a 350, or a 450, or a 500. I suppose that’s the beauty of our brand is that we can confuse the hell out of you, because there are so many different bikes in the range that you can actually win on.”

Fricke Wins Victorian U21 Title

Current Under 21 World Speedway Champion Max Fricke has predictably won the Victorian Under 21 Speedway Championship held at Albury Wodonga last weekend.

Fricke posted this message on FB after the event: “Had a good meeting tonight at Albury winning the U21 Victorian Title. Thanks to the AWMCC – Albury Wodonga Motorcycle Club and the riders for a good night’s racing.”

Superprestigio – Barcelona

Three-time MotoGP World Champion Marc Marquez has taken top honours ahead of Tony Elias and American Flat Track star Brad Baker in the Superprestigio Superfinal in front of his hometown crowd at Barcelona’s Palau Sant Jordi last Saturday night.
Marquez and Baker headed into the final showdown of the evening as winners of the brackets for their respective classes – Superprestigio and Open – but they were both after bragging rights for taking home that Superfinal win and Marquez was happy to have that this year.

“Of course I’m really happy because this is the Superprestigio,” Marquez said. “Last year I was really close from the victory and this year I get it. I know the mistakes that I did last year, but this year I try to be in a different way and it was working well. But especially the pace was working really good. Toni (Elias) was pushing a lot but the pace this year was the best year, what I feel. Also, one of the reasons was my team. They are right here at the Palau. It was a really good job.”

It was a reversal of fortune for Baker, as this time around Marquez made improvements to his setup and rode off into the distance, while Baker had to play it smart to get a spot on the podium.

“Tyre choice was very crucial today,” Baker said. “The surface was very abrasive and these tires are very soft, so they wear really quick. I really never road with a new tire all day long, but I just thought with the 16 laps that I was going to need a lot of rubber, a lot of tyre to last at the end and it was a bad decision.”

Two laps in, Baker knew his mistake and knew that his race was over. Toni Elias was able to get past Baker and attempt to chase down his fellow Spaniard, but Marquez was in the zone. The former Moto2 World Champion and current MotoAmerica Superbike racer had to settle for second, but after a rough week struggling to find the right setup, Elias was more than happy with a runner-up result.

“We didn’t expect that. We knew that the Superprestigio (Final) was possible but not the Superfinal,” Elias said. Thanks to my team because they work really hard throughout the week, especially the last days. We made the right choices at the right time.”

Elias also had a bit of luck, as he realized last minute that his tire was toast before going into the Superfinal. But with the good will of the tire manufacturer, they reopened their truck and fitted a new tire for him.

“I was really close to losing the Superfinal because my rear tyre was completely finished and I went to push for it; I need to change my tire,” Elias said. “He waited for me and finally everything was right. The Superfinal was perfect. I could pass Brad, someone who rides that well. This is nice to end the year this way, because it’s been a nice year. Thanks to everybody in the U.S. Thanks to this team, to my family, all the fans in the stand. And tonight to continue to party!”

As for Baker, he was obviously disappointed not to keep his Superprestigio streak alive, but he’s enjoyed his time in Spain and is more motivated than ever to come back next year and take back the crown.

“Well, first off, this event, this time that I come over and spend in Spain is something that I’ll remember forever,” Baker said. “It’s been something that is very important to me and the people that I’ve met here in Spain and for the Superprestigio – it’s irreplaceable. I’ve enjoyed it and I’ve had a really good time here at the Superprestigio, but it’s like the pressure to win and to produce for Flat Track, it gets more intense every single year, everybody else gets better. But I’m just thankful to be a part of that and that Flat Track is here and the Superprestigio is getting bigger and everyone else is growing with it.”

Moto2 racer Xavier Simon was fourth.  In fifth, and the next best Open class rider was Spanish flat track racer Gerard Bailo followed by another Moto2 racer, Marcel Schrotter. The 2016 RFME Copa de Flat Track Champion Ferran Cardus was shuffled back to seventh after a mid-race miscue. Five-time FIM Supermoto World Champion Thomas Chareyre’s eighth-place result completed the results for the Superfinal.
