December 23: One of the most extraordinary guys in the industry has to be former Parts Unlimited boss Jeff Fox. He took his family-run company to a whole new level in the last fifteen years, and then announced his retirement. He supported races and racers on every level, and remains a true enthusiast for all types of motorcycle racing.  

December 23: In 2009, Wil Hahn will be riding for the Muscle Milk/MDK/KTM team. Hahn rides hard from start to finish and is one of most gifted riders on the circuit. If he can get some momentum going at the beginning of the season, he could be a podium regular in supercross.

After trying to make it on the pro circuit, he decided to hang up his leathers and try his hand at being a mechanic.
