Racer X Illustrated Motocross Magazine

The August 2010 Issue

Read the Racer X Illustrated Digital Edition! Supercross may be over, but after only a one-week racing hiatus, the 2010 Lucas Oil AMA Pro Motocross Championship has kicked off. Our August issue of Racer X wraps up the 2010 Monster Energy Supercross Championship and takes a look at some recent changes. For instance, Chad Reed has a baby. The Racer X staff had to actually work in Las Vegas. And Mike Alessi and his father are pushing KTM's new 350 SX-F—okay, so this one isn't that new. Along with these, you can read about Eli Tomac's career and the positive influence of his father. We have also included features about the Hangtown Classic and about Jeremy McGrath's impact on the sport of SX. These and more are featured in the August issue of RXI and the digital edition is now available for only $4.98! That is just 42 cents per issue, and it still features the same great columns by your favorite writers and riders. Click here to go to Racer X Digital and read the new issue right away for only $4.98.
