Racer X Illustrated

August 2011

Shifting from supercross to motocross, the August issue of Racer X Illustrated wraps up the 2011 Monster Energy AMA Supercross series and gives highlights from the first round of the Lucas Oil Ama Pro Motocross Championship. This issue compares the Americans and Europeans at the Dutch Grand Prix Motocross; we also check-in on Malcolm Smith's career and Jay Ryneberg's Australian team, JDR/J-Star Motors KTM. These and more are featured in the August issue of RXI, and the digital edition is now available for only $9.98!
