Mike Brown, X Games Gold Medalist - FMF/KTM
Brownie has had an impressive career to put it lightly. He's competed in Europe as well as the U.S. and won championships and races along the way including the 2001 125cc AMA Pro Motocross Outdoor Championship. He no longer races motocross full time and has transferred over to offroad racing part-time. In 2009, he won the WORCS title and has done very well in Endurocross. At this year's X Games he won the Enduro X event gold medal at the age of 40. Now he's competing in the Lucas Oil Pro Motocross Championship races to score enough points to keep his national number; 3.
Vicki Golden, X Games Gold Medalist - Poynt Kawasaki
Being the only woman to ever qualify for an Arenacross Lites main event, it is no surprise she did well at 2012 X Games. For the second year in a row Vicki won the gold medal in the Womens Moto X event. She got out front early and rode a flawless race to gap the rest of the field and made her second consecutive X Games gold medal win look easy. Golden is a past Lucas Oil AMA Pro Motocross competitor in the Women's class where she also had impressive finishes.
Stefan Nebel, AMA Pro Racing SuperBike - KTM/HMC Superbike Team
A two-time (German) IDM Superbike Champion and former IDM Superstock Champion, Nebel competes in AMA Pro National Guard SuperBike Series aboard the KTM/HMC Superbike Racing RC8 R with teammate Chris Fillmore. He has raced six of the eleven races so far and is in 16th place in the standings. His best finish has been 10th place.
Tomas Puerta, AMA Pro Racing SuperSport East - Road Race Factory Red Bull Yamaha
Tomas picked a 3rd place podium at the last round of the AMA Pro Racing Series at Barber Motorsports Park. So far this season it is his best finish and it places him in 4th overall.
