Kawasaki’s Tyla Rattray pretty much owns Southwick. He earned his first 250 moto win there in 2009, and backed that up with overalls in 2010-11 setting the stage for his win last weekend. Tyla has had a rough season so far, but you know one of the toughest riders in the pits wouldn’t be kept down for long. We always look forward to catching up with one of our favorite South African transplants.
There are certain defining moments in sports that can positively affect an outcome well above the final results. These feats of sportsmanship are unexpected, yet instantly give perspective to a larger purpose. Michael McDade was faced with a decision after a pileup at Southwick. As he was scrambling back to his own ride, he saw the hand waving of a fellow racer in a precarious and dangerous situation stuck under his motorcycle. He didn’t hesitate to drop his own bike and render aid at the cost of valuable time on the track. This might seem insignificant to some, but we salute his decision and wanted to have him on to make sure he knew that.
Concept2 Rowers are found at the home gyms and in the rigs of our sport’s top riders for a reason. There’s simply not a better rowing machine on the market.
