Another Tuesday night and another show packed with awesome guests starting with JGR / Muscle Milk’s Justin Brayton. Justin has been on the verge of a podium finish this year amongst what is likely the most stacked group of talent we’ve seen in two decades. He’s had a couple rough races in this young season, but he rallied back to grab his best finish yet at Anaheim 2 this past weekend. We’ll catch up with Justin and talk to him about his strengths, speed, bike and team. If we’ve got time we might even ask him what he thinks of his new nickname ‘The SituBrayton’.
Next up we’ve got a hero among hero’s, Jimmy Button. Jimmy is about to embark on a bicycle journey from San Diego to Daytona Florida in an effort to raise $1,000,000 for Miles For Miracles, a charity that raises money for spinal cord research. In January 2000, Jimmy was a Factory Yamaha motocross racer, and on January 22nd of that same year Jimmy suffered paralyzing injuries when he crashed during practice at the San Diego SX. He was paralyzed from the neck down, and considered a quadriplegic. After months of rehab, Jimmy was able to regain movement and be one of the very fortunate few that ever recover from these types of injuries. Now, ten years later Jimmy and his trainer Cory are teaming up to raise money for those that were not so fortunate after suffering a spinal cord injury.
Our final guest Bruce Rutherford has been consistently killing it in the ultra-stacked West Coast Lites class in 2011. This 20 year old is what we consider a full-blown privateer with his dad on the wrenches and a nearly stock bike with only simple bolt-on goodies, he’s taken his heart and desire out to the track to do battle with the best there is. We’ll get to know as much as we can about where he came from, who’s helping him and what his plans are for 2011 while we’ve got his full attention and he’s got ours.
