Irvine, Calif. – Following a successful final year competing against the top amateur riders in the nation, Monster Energy Kawasaki Team Green’s Chris Alldredge will make the transition to the Monster Energy/Pro Circuit/Kawasaki squad for the remainder of the 2014 Lucas Oil Pro Motocross Championship. Alldredge has been the top rider in the A class this season collecting wins and championships at all of the major amateur national championships.

“I’m so honored to have this opportunity with Monster Energy/Pro Circuit/Kawasaki,” said Alldredge. “I was welcomed into the Team Green family this year and feel like I’ve really found a home. Working closely with Pro Circuit this year, I knew that’s where I wanted to be and I am really excited to work with the best in the business.”

Alldredge’s success with Team Green gained Mitch Payton’s attention and he knew he wanted to keep him with Kawasaki. Alldredge joins a long list of amateurs to graduate from Team Green on to the Monster Energy/Pro Circuit/Kawasaki team such as Ricky Carmichael, Ryan Villopoto, Dean Wilson, Adam Cianciarulo, and Justin Hill.

“Alldredge has really shown a lot of promise,” said Payton. “He has all the key elements to transition into his pro career and be a player from the get-go. He knows the equipment and we expect him to pick up in the 250 class where he left off as an amateur.”

Alldredge will make his professional debut with the team at Unadilla in New Berlin, New York on August 9 running the No. 188 on his 2015 KX™250F.

CycleTrader.com/Rock River/Yamaha Signs Amateur National Champion Luke Renzland

Photos By Martha Farmer
Johnson Creek, WI (August 5, 2014) – CycleTrader.com/Rock River/Yamaha is proud to announce the addition of Luke Renzland to the team. The 19-year-old New Jersey native capped off his amateur career this past week with a solid performance at the 2014 Amateur National Championships at Loretta Lynn’s Ranch. He took home the 450 A Class title with 3-1-1 finishes, and went 4-2-2 for 2nd overall in 250 A Class. A long time Yamaha supported rider, Renzland was a part of the Horton Racing/Cycle Trader Rock River Yamaha amateur program in 2014. With three rounds remaining in the 2014 Lucas Oil/AMA Pro National series, Renzland will make his professional debut in the 250 Class at Unadilla this Saturday, August 9. We are excited to have him on board with our team, and look forward to seeing him on the gate!

Welcome to the team, Luke! You had a great week at Loretta’s! Tell us about your days at the Ranch this year. Did things go as planned for you?
Yeah, the week at Loretta’s went great. You know, I started off with a lot of confidence coming into the week, especially with getting to run the #1 plate in the 450 A Class. The week started off a little rough with a couple bad starts, having to crawl my way through the pack the first two motos of the week. But I figured that out fairly quickly, we made a few adjustments, and I came out with a lot better starts the next four motos. I ended up coming away with the championship in 450 A and took 2nd in 250 A.
With such a long week isolated at the track, how do you stay focused on racing and not get distracted by everything else going on?
You know, my family has always made it clear to me that Loretta’s is a big deal. It costs a lot of money to just to go and my whole family supports me down there. There’s no reason to be throwing it away by hanging out in the creek and all that stuff, blowing all your energy before the races. I just hang out under my tent, back at the camper with my family. Just staying cool and hydrated, and keeping focus on what I’m there to do.

Your Dreamland compound in Florida has been well-documented over the last couple years, and it looks unreal. What is it like having such an incredible facility to do your training at?
Living at Dreamland is awesome. It’s literally a dream come true to have my own facility and track to get all of my training done. Jason Baker from Dream Traxx did an awesome job building the place, and it’s one of the best tracks for training. It gets rough, and rutted, and bumpy, but it also has the huge jumps, as everyone has seen on all of the videos, to get in some fun while you’re doing long motos. It’s been a great place to get prepared for Loretta’s and the Nationals, with all the different types of terrain and I have Mike down there as my riding partner. We stay focused and get our work done, while having a lot of fun as well.
What are your expectations going into your professional debut at Unadilla?
Coming into Unadilla, my main focus is to take all of the pressure off of myself and have fun, enjoy my pro debut at my home track up here. I know that I have a lot of fans coming from my hometown, and all my family is going to be there. I’m really excited to have my debut at such a personally special and legendary track. But yeah, like I said, I just want to keep the pressure off and my goal as far as results go [is] top 15 in both motos. But I’m not putting too much into that; I just want to be strong and consistent and finish both motos, and build experience for Indiana and Utah.

American Honda Re-Signs Trey Canard to Factory Contract

Courtesy of American Honda

TORRANCE, California: American Honda Motor Co., Inc. announced today that it will extend the contract with factory supercross and motocross rider Trey Canard for an additional two years. Canard has spent his entire professional career with the Honda brand, and this agreement continues that relationship, as the Oklahoma native will campaign a factory Honda CRF450R in the AMA Supercross Championship and AMA Pro Motocross Championship during the 2015 and 2016 seasons.
“I’m so excited to continue my long relationship with Honda for another two years,” Canard said. “The company, the team and everyone involved is really motivated about racing, and we’re all pushing hard and doing our best. I’ll continue to always give my best effort over these next two years, and we’re shooting for wins and championships. The enthusiasm around Honda right now is a really good thing that I’m excited to be a part of, and I think 2015 is going to be a great year for us.”
After sitting out the entire 2014 AMA Supercross series while recovering from a broken arm, Canard has made a notable comeback this summer in AMA Pro Motocross, regularly finishing on the podium. With three rounds remaining, he currently sits third in the points standings.
“We are very much looking forward to having Trey back with Honda for two more years,” said Ray
Conway, Director of Racing at American Honda. “He has been with the company for his entire professional career, and he is a joy to work with. His performance this season, particularly in the Pro Motocross Championship, demonstrates his potential, and we’re expecting even better things from him in 2015 and ’16.”

Cobra Moto Announces New National Development Team

Courtesy of Cobra Moto


HILLSDALE, Mich., (July 23, 2014) – When you’re working to pick the best kids on dirt bikes you have to remember the late bloomers. Guys like Jeremy McGrath and John Dowd, for instance, didn’t take motocross seriously until their teens. And for Cobra Moto, which starts working with kids as young as four, there’s been a lot of talented kids racing the American-made minicycles over the years that have, for one reason or another, gone unnoticed.
With that in mind Lakehill Trackside Racing’s Doug Cochran approached Cobra Moto President Sean Hilbert this past January with a plan – a plan geared towards developing a number of the not-quite-there-yet young racers into possible talent for Cobra’s prestigious National team.
Dubbed the Cobra Moto National Development Team, Cochran’s Lakehill Trackside Racing program has recruited the seven best up-and-coming minicycles racers in the nation and given them support at the national level at races such as Mill Creek (Ala.), Oak Hill (Texas) and Freestone (Texas).
“We often bypass kids who, at the time, weren’t ready for national competition,” said Cochran. “So we basically came up with the Cobra Moto National Development Team along the lines of a minor league baseball program.”
Working with engine and suspension specialist Josh Rogers, who owns the Houston-based EBR Performance, Cochran and his wife, Amy, have dedicated their time and much of their business resources this year to Cobra Moto’s National Development Team. Utilizing Cobra Moto’s dealer support network, Cochran was able to sign seven kids (below) – all of whom have qualified for the 2014 Rocky Mountain ATV/MC AMA Amateur National Motocross Championship at Loretta Lynn’s ranch in Hurricane Mills, Tenn.
Edgar Lewis              Virden, IL                   65cc 7-9
Chris Sweeney           Jackson, NJ                 65cc 7-9
Collin Allen                Haslet, TX                   50cc 7-8
Brock Walker            Cleburne, TX              50cc 7-8
Cole Kish                   Newport, MI               50cc 7-8
Kyler Rhom               Charlotte, NC             50cc 4-6
Hayden Cline             Converse, TX              50cc 4-6
“I can’t begin to explain what a positive impact Doug and his team at Lakehill Trackside Racing have had on the Cobra Moto program this year,” said Hilbert. “Much like Cobra Moto’s mantra, the Cochrans have dedicated their business to support the Cobra Moto family, assisting kids who will no doubt be the front-runners for the Cobra Moto National Team positions in the coming years.”Cochran brings with him a wealth of experience at Loretta’s. His son, Casey, is a Cobra Moto National Team racer and the defending champion in the 4-6 50cc class. Casey will be on one of the 29 Cobras in the 7-8 class (of 42 bikes total) at Loretta’s, nine of which have Lakehill Trackside Racing support!
Up next for Cobra: 2014 Rocky Mountain ATV/MC AMA Amateur National Motocross Championship at Loretta Lynn’s ranch in Hurricane Mills, Tenn., July 27-Augs. 2.
