Smarty’s Moto Wrap for March 25, 2014
Ok, the bad news first. Joel Dinsdale is right now in the Townsville hospital after an horrific car crash last week while travelling from Mackay to Brisbane for the GYTR photo shoot.
Dinsdale’s vehicle left the road an hour or so south of Mackay and struck a tree and the rescue crew had to cut the teenager from the vehicle and he was immediately air lifted to the Townsville hospital with head injuries, a broken leg and a few other cut and cruises. At the time of writing Joel’s damaged leg has been operated on and after a few days in a coma is starting the long road to recovery.
Fellow Queenslander and MX Nationals MX1 title contender Ford Dale has crashed and broken his arm at his practice track in Caloundra. The former MX2 champion will be out for the first half of the MX Nationals.
On a brighter note, Troy Carroll’s Kawasaki team now has a proper name. Carroll has secured National Pump Services and Monster Energy as his major sponsors so Adam Monea and Jake Moss will be riding for National Pump Monster Energy Kawasaki for 2014.
I did a Google search for National Pump Services and couldn’t find anything as a local company with that name but if I find anything I will let you know. It is great to secure outside industry sponsorship.
The Toronto round of the AMA Supercross saw Jackson Richardson qualify in 21st place while Taylor Potter scored his best qualifying time with 28th fastest. Thankfully both riders made it through to the main event with Richardson just missing out on a top ten finish with 11th place while Potter scored a credible 17th place.
How about James Stewart’s jump fest at Toronto? If you haven’t seen the main event yet just go to youtube, his bravery and skill over some of those rhythm sections was breathtaking, I was expecting to see the Suzuki flipping through the air several times.
Toronto was fraught with danger, the tricky rhythm section taking down riders left, right and centre. The most notable crashes came from Broc Tickle who didn’t make it to the main program after crashing hard in practice while Ivan Tedesco and Blake Baggett cartwheeled during their main events.
Championship leaders Ryan Villopoto and Adam Cianciarulo had a tough night in Toronto. Villopoto struggling to even make the night program thanks to food poisoning while Cianciarulo dislocated his should in practice after taking a dive in the whoops and was forced to retire from the main event.
Jeffrey Herlings has been injured at the second round of the Dutch Motocross Championships held in Holland last weekend, at the time of writing there is no news other than a Facebook post by Herlings saying that he has hurt his shoulder in practice and is on his way to hospital for scans.
Todd Waters was in fine form in Holland and scored two solid second places behind local sand specialist Mike Kras. Luke Styke is getting stronger and stronger after his bout of illness and scored 5-7 moto finishes in Holland. Our Aussie GP stars are on their way to Brazil for the third round of the World Motocross Championships this weekend.
All eyes will be on Broadford for the opening round of the MX Nationals this weekend and there is still a question mark over Josh Cachia, the Honda rider struggling with a wrist inuury while Kirk Gibbs will have to find a quick solution to a broken knuckle. Kayne Lamont will have another week of healing after his appendix was removed just before the final round of the New Zealand Motocross Championships.
This week we have the race reports and results from:
- – Round 12 of the AMA Supercross held in Toronto
- – Round 4 of the New Zealand Motocross Championships in Taupo
- – Round 2 of the Dutch Motocross Championships in Holland
- – Round 1 of UK’s MX Nationals held at Fatcats
- – Round 1 of the 2014 Australian Off-Road Championships held at Bulahdelah, NSW

2014 Monster Energy AMA Supercross Championship – Round 12 – Toronto
450 Race Report: Ken Roczen took the holeshot in front Justin Barcia, Justin Brayton and Ryan Villopoto while Ryan Dungey sat back a few places further back with James Stewart buried in the pack.
With Roczen struggling to find rhythm around the technical layout Barcia took over the lead and quickly gapped the lead and looked to have his first win since Seattle a season ago within his grasp.
As a very crook Ryan Villopoto lost positions to Ryan Dungey and Weston Peick, James Stewart started jumping two sections of the track with one less leap than anyone else and before you could say ‘Bubba is Back’ the Suzuki rider blew by Villopoto, Brayton, Peick, Dungey and Roczen and started to immediately make ground on Barcia.
Dungey moved into third place ahead of Roczen but all eyes were on Stewarts incredible charge around the track and it took no time for Barcia to lose the lead and he must have been amazed at how fast he was caught and passed but on a track that was fraught with danger the Honda rider rode smart (unusual I know) to take second place ahead of Dungey, Brayton, Roczen, Villopoto and Peick.
“That was probably one of my best races ever, I’m speechless,” said Stewart. “To pass Carmichael and move into second on the all-time wins list is special. This hasn’t even set in yet. The fans kept me motivated tonight. I heard them through every pass, it was great.”
Ryan Villopoto was dealing with food poisoning all day but managed to score sixth place and minimise the damage to his points lead. “We made the best of a bad scenario,” said Villopoto. “I woke up in a lot of pain this morning and the Asterisk Mobile Medical Crew thought it was best I [go to the hospital] to get checked out. I got out of the hospital and was lucky to make it in time for the night show. We salvaged a lot of points and I’ll go to the doctor back home in California to make sure we’re ready for St. Louis next weekend.”
Villopoto lost just five points to Dungey in the 450SX Class standings, currently holding a 25-point lead with five races remaining.
Main Event: 1. James Stewart. 2. Justin Barcia. 3. Ryan Dungey. 4. Justin Brayton. 5. Ken Roczen. 6. Ryan Villopoto. 7. Weston Peick. 8. Dean Wilson. 9. Joshua Hill. 10. Matthew Goerke. 11.

450SX Championship Standings After Round 12 of 17: 1. Ryan Villopoto – 246. 2. Ryan Dungey – 221. 3. James Stewart – 207. 4. Ken Roczen – 197. 5. Justin Brayton – 185. 6. Justin Barcia – 156. 7.

250 Race Report: There was question mark over Adam Cianciarulo as the gate dropped for the main event after the points leader crashed and popped his shoulder out of the socket during practice but it was Justin Bogle who grabbed the holeshot ahead of Cianciarulo, Jimmy Decotis, Martin Davalos, Matt Lamoine, Matthew Bisceglia and Jeremy Martin while Jackson Richardson sat back in tenth place.
Just a few laps into the race Cianciarulo had to pull off after his shoulder popped out for the second time on the day and despite trying to continue in the race the rookie had to pull out and head back to the pits.
With Bogle out front and keeping well away from second placed Davalos, there was plenty of action for the final podium position with Lemoine, Martin and Blake Baggett in a wheel-to-wheel battle before Baggett was able to move past Martin and immediately start looking for a way around Lemoine but after several lap Lemoine was holding his ground.
Baggett crashed hard on a kicker jump (he was one of many) and was forced to retire from the race so is was a well-deserved win for Justin Bogle while Davalos kept second place despite a crash and was followed over the line by privateer Lamoine, Martin, Cole Thompson, Vince Friese, Alex Martin, Kyle Cunningham, A J Catanzaro, Jimmy Decotis and Jackson Richardson.
“I finally got a good start, which made racing for the win a lot easier,” said Bogle. “It’s crazy. I crossed the finish line and I didn’t even know what to do. I’ve thought so much about what I’d do when I got my first win, but I don’t know. I just turned the corner after the finish and dropped my bike. I’m just so overwhelmed right now.”
“The track got really tough and I ended up making a mistake about halfway through,” said Davalos. “Luckily we were able to recover and still get a good finish, so I’ll take it. We gained a lot of points tonight, but there’s still a lot of racing left this season.”
Davalos leaves Toronto with a four-point lead over Cianciarulo with three races remaining in the 250SX Eastern Regional Championship. The East Coast riders will race at St. Louis next weekend then sit out Houston and Seattle while the West Coast riders get back into action.
Main Event: 1. Justin Bogle. 2. Martin Davalos. 3. Matthew Lemoine. 4. Jeremy Martin. 5. Cole Thompson. 6. Vince Friese. 7. Alex Martin. 8. Kyle Cunningham. 9. A J Catanzaro. 10. James Decotis. 11.

New Zealand Motocross Championships – Round 4 – Taupo
MX2 championship leader Kayne Lamont lined up at Taupo just two days after having his appendix out so all eyes were on the teenager to see if he could wrap up his first senior New Zealand championship and there was also some drama after qualifying with the fastest MX1 qualifier in Kirk Gibbs forced to retire from the day after chipping the knuckle on his little finger on a track side marker.
Cody Cooper finalised his almost flawless championship defence by dominating the opening two motos at Taupo before coming from dead last to third place in the final moto. “Had an awesome day, won the overall and the championship, the track got beat up real bad but Ben Townley and the team got onto the suspension and we were happy with that,” said Cooper. “Had a problem in the last moto, the gate didn’t drop so I was last but it was awesome to get a different race, to come through the field and do all of the passing, it was good preparation for the Aussies next weekend (he means Broadford MX Nationals), I fell it was something I needed, maybe it was meant to happen.”
Local Brad Groombridge scored second place on the day ahead of Billy Mackenzie.
Hamish Dobbyn and Rhys Carter battled hard all day for the MX2 overall with Dobbyn getting the nod while the Yamaha pairing of Scott Column and Jay Wilson came home in third and fourth overall. Lamont ended up in eighth place overall on the day after opting out of the final moto thanks to his appendix operation but the young Kiwi still wrapped up the championships.
“It was a tough day, I came here to score enough points to win the championships and thankfully that is how it worked out, I can’t thank the people around me enough, this championship win means a lot to everyone involved,” said Lamont.

UK MX Nationals – Round 1 – Fatcats
It must be great to race in a series that gives you 100 points for first place and something like 50 points for 25th but that is what they do in the UK Nationals and last weekend the opening round saw Nathan Watson come out of the three Pro motos as the championship leader ahead of Elliott Banks-Brown and Gert Krestinov.
Championship favourite Kristian Whatley won the opening moto from Watson and Banks-Brown but Watson managed to win the second moto with Banks-Brown winning the final moto.
Whatley’s day turn pear shaped after the opening moto and sits back in 20th outright after the opening round while Bank-Brown was close to coming away with the round win. “It was a shame about the crash in the second race, as that has cost me the overall, although fairplay to Nathan (Watson) he has been fast over the two days,” said Elliott Banks-Brown. “My speed has been good all weekend, but I rode tight in the first race yesterday and then made that mistake in the second race today when I was closing in on Watson. The last race went to plan, a good start and even when Whatley passed me early on I knew I could get him back, which I did and then rode easy to take the win, despite the track being so rough come the end of the day.”
Round 1 Overall: 1. Nathan Watson – 290. 2. Elliott Banks-Brown – 280. 3. Gert Krestinov 250. 4. Neville Bradshaw – 239. 5. Martin Barr – 222. 6. Graeme Irwin – 222. 7. Adam Sterry – 215. 8. Lewis Trickett – 212. 9. Bryan MacKenzie – 209. 10. Ben Watson – 204. 11. Tony Craig – 200. 12. Josh Waterman – 193. 13. Lewis Tombs – 192. 14. Jamie Law – 191. 15. Jordan Booker – 189 16. Patrick Major – 187. 17. Brad Anderson – 185. 18. Stuart Edmonds – 183. 19. Luke Remmer – 181. 20. Kristian Whatley – 176.
Australian Off-Road Championships – Round 1 – Bulahdelah, NSW
After the opening round of the 2014 AORC it was looking like Toby Price was back to his dominating best and even at the start of round 2 on Sunday the KTM pilot was rocketing off to another victory but a huge crash when Price clipped a rock, put pay to his walking away with the championship lead for the KTM star.
“I hit a rock that I couldn’t see, got deflected, and got out sideways. That’s the frustrating part, if the tree had not have been there I would have corrected it and ridden away.” Price said. “It was hurting pretty damn bad that’s for sure, apparently I dislocated my hip, so it and my elbow are badly bruised, and my toenail will have to be removed. But it’s all good, I’ll just put my head down and keep charging forward. I’ll be fine in four weeks and I’ll be at the next round no dramas.”
“I’m bummed I didn’t get the win on Day two, but at least I know my speed is good. The annoying thing was, I wasn’t going overboard, just doing a comfortable pace that was getting me the good times, and just made one little mistake.” Price added.
In fact, it is Chris Hollis who came away from Bulahdelah with the overall championship lead after a second place to Price on Saturday and a second place to Daniel Milner on Sunday. My loose maths has Josh Green second in the championship after two fourth places while Milner’s 13-1 should have him third in the championship with Glenn Kearney’s 3-7 putting him forth outright.
