Advance, North Carolina - Motorcycle industry celebrities and insiders from the motorcycle world give their uncut opinions and stories.
Robbie Maddison, Freestyle Motocross - World Record Holder
As a native of Australia, Robbie was an Australian Amateur Motocross Champion by age 16. He made the decision to pursue a career in freestyle and it's been the right move. Today his accomplishments include solid finishes in FMX including the Dew Tour, X Games, and the Red Bull X Fighters series. He's probably most known for his insane jumps he's pulled off all over the globe including his world records in distance.
Ryan Huffman, Pro Racer and National Promoter - Washougal MX
At the opening round of the Lucas Oil Pro Motocross Nationals Ryan made history by being the first Outdoor National Promoter to actually qualify and race a national himself. He's now 38 years old and apparently still in great shape and very fast. He finished 35th overall and that's very impressive for a guy that hasn't been racing the circuit in a very long time. Huffman was a top amateur racer in the 1990's and went on to become a factory rider.
Jarel Jenson, President/CEO - TrackAddix Track Days, Ducati of Omaha
Jarel's been a club-level racer and track day enthusiast for over 10 years and has been running all of the TrackAddix events since 2009 when Ducati Omaha acquired the TrackAddix business. Prior to owning TrackAddix, Jarel was a volunteer track instructor for TrackAddix and really enjoys helping new track day riders get involved with the sport. He's rocking a Ducati 1199 Panigale around the track this year, but started out racing an SV650, and has ridden just about every bike in between.
Ronnie Saner - AMA Pro Racing Team Owner - Motosport.com/EBR Team
Recently the news of Motosport.com's sponsorship of Ronnie Saner's team hit the wires. Included in the announcement was mention that Stefano Mesa would be picking up a ride with the newly named Motosport.com/EBR ( Mesa's prior team recently folded). Saner is the owner of RSRaceCraft and his team includes Cory West, Dustin Dominguez, Brandon Cleland and Stefano Mesa. The team is in Elkhart Lake, Wisconsin preparing for the races this coming weekend at Road America.
Tyler Linders, AMA Pro SuperSport #48 - Linders Racing
Tyler started racing when he was ten years old on a pocket bike and moved up through the ranks to his first season of AMA Pro Racing in 2012. He had a great season finishing 6th in AMA Pro SuperSport West points. So far during the 2013 season Tyler broke his collar bone at an amateur race at Las Vegas Motor Speedway and hasn't raced since. He missed round one of the AMA Pro Racing series, but plans to come back fighting hard at Road America in Elkhart Lake, Wisconsin for round two this weekend.
