Villopoto, Roczen, Morais and Coombs on the Pulpmx Show TonightMonday, May 7, 2012 | 4:40 PM
What a weekend in Las Vegas for the Pulpmx Show crew. Kenny Watson was nominated but did not win for Team Manager of the year but he and his team did take home the Innovative Team of the Year award of something like that. Steve Matthes and Tits didn’t win a thing.
Lots to talk about tonight on the Pulpmx Show presented by BTOSports.com and we’ll be here to break it down and discuss it from every angle possible.
Ryan Villopoto is your 2012 supercross champion which we all know but he’s also out all summer with a knee injury. We’ll have RV on to talk about the crash, the surgery and what he’s going to be doing all year. We’ll work on getting him to a Canadian national or two to cheer on his brother Tyler this summer.
KTM’s Kenny Roczen won a supercross race this year and handled himself pretty well here in his first year of full-time American racing. Of course the reigning MX2 World Champion’s true speed lay outside and with Hangtown coming up, we’ll get Kid Rocz thoughts on taking it outside.
Star/Valli Yamaha’s Ryan Morais is one of the good guys in the sport and unfortunately for him, he’s been out all year with a head injury after a crash at LA Stadium. We’ll have Mo on to talk about his recovery, his future plans and at one point, we'll talk about the ’98 Mini O’s.
Davey Coombs is the head guy at Racer X magazine as well as a driving force with MX Sports, the national motocross promoters. With the news of James Stewart going to Suzuki coming out today, I called DC for his take on that news, injuries in the sport and the coming nationals for a pre-taped conversation.
Our regular phone screener and part-time producer Tits Legendary will be here to answer your calls and take part in the show. Have a question for the show? Send it over on Twitter @titslegendary and he’ll get it on.
