Birthdays from January 21 to January 28

Micky Dymond
January 21: Back in the mid-eighties there was a kid from Southern California that was making a name for himself on the local scene while riding a Husqvarna. The guys at Honda saw something special in him, and signed him to a contract. That rider was Micky Dymond, and he rewarded them with two 125 AMA 125cc National Motocross Championships in 1986 and 1987. In the years to come, injuries set him back and eventually took Micky out of the racing. He flirted with some freestyle, then when Supermoto started to happen, Dymond took the chance and got back into racing. And in 2006, he won the AMA Supermoto class.

January 23: Isaiah Johnson is one of those guys who just loves to ride his dirt bike. Johnson has never made it to the factory level but he has always managed to get great results against the factory guys. He’s also a member of the huge Albuquerque, New Mexico contingent of pro riders.
