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 racing. He flirted with some freestyle, then, when Supermoto started to happen, Dymond took a chance and got back into racing. And in 2006, he won the AMA Supermoto class.
