We’ve been a fan of Chad Reed since he first came over in 2002 where he quickly displayed his talent and won a 125 East Coast SX title and began what has been a very impressive career to this point. I say to this point because there are plenty of chapters yet to be written, and those that doubt his competitive nature will soon again be proven wrong. There is no doubt that the field at Anaheim will be deep with new blood, but the riders with the championships and experience will certainly be heard from before it all said and done. CR will join us tonight for an update on his new team as he prepares for the opening round and some redemption for a season lost.
David Pingree has stepped aside as team manager at TLD for a noble career in the real world, but he still has an advisory roll with the team and will weigh in on the upcoming season and their new additions. We will also get the final post-vasectomy score card from the bulletless, yet popular sport personality.
GEICO Powersports Honda’s Wil Hahn has signed an exclusive contract to be on every DMXS show for the next year, or until he gets sick of us. We’ll be sure to make the most of it as our listeners will get a kind of weekly blog as the season progresses from the witty Texan. He is certainly a title contender and should have plenty to say throughout the year.
Speaking of GEICO Powersports, they have truly embraced nurturing their future riders from the amateur ranks and continued to secure that pipeline of talent by signing Justin Bogle to the team. Justin just kicked butt and took names at the Mini O’s in Florida and will break down the week and also give us the details of his pro plans tonight.
If you're looking for the perfect stocking stuffer for any true motocross fan, don’t forget to pick up a copy of The Carlsbad USGP: 1980, the inspiring story of the day that changed motocross in our country as privateer Marty Moates shocked the world with a win. Todd Huffman deserves a motocross Oscar for his tireless work and epic projects that not only preserve the sacred history of our sport, but honors the folks that helped get us here. Please check out www.motocrossfiles.com and support his efforts by picking up a copy or two this holiday season.
