The Daytona Supercross by Honda is the oldest race on the professional supercross tour. In 2012, it once again proved to be the roughest as well. Page 118.
WHAT’S IN THE BOX?
A lot happens to a factory race bike between the podium celebration and the next round’s practice. We follow Ryan Villopoto’s KX450F—and each of its parts—across the country and back. Page 130.
THE RESET BUTTON
At 20, Ricky Dietrich made off-road history, won the AMA Athlete of The Year, and filled in for Ryan Villopoto at Monster Energy Kawasaki. Then, just as quickly, everything seemed to slip away. Page 144.
As the 2012 Monster Energy Supercross Series reaches the home stretch, Ping steps back, takes it all in, and picks out major trends both good and bad. Page 158.
THE BREAKING POINT
Now a specialized tour that can develop champions internally, the Can-Am Grand National Cross-Country Series has never been stronger or more competitive. Page 172.
A PLACE IN THE SUN
When the rain finally stopped at Daytona, it was time for the Monster Energy Ricky Carmichael Daytona Amateur Supercross— and time for our own Mike Fisher to enjoy his spring break. Page 188.
