Gate drops on 20 years of Cobra Moto @ Loretta’s

Courtesy of Cobra

The American-made dirt bikes, which debuted on Loretta Lynn’s Ranch in 1994, are set to stand tall against the rest of the field in the 50 & 65cc classes

HILLSDALE, Mich., (July 29, 2013) – The Super Bowl of amateur motocross racing kicks off today in Hurricane Mills, Tenn., and the world’s premier competition mini bikes - built right here in the United States by Michigan-based Cobra Moto - will take center stage in this the company’s 20th anniversary of racing the great Red Bull Amateur National Motocross Championship, presented by AMSOIL at famed country singer Loretta Lynn’s Ranch.

As always, Cobra Moto’s loaded-for-bear at Loretta’s, this week featuring another all-star lineup like past ones that have delivered to Cobra more 50cc class championships through the past 20 years than any other mini cycle brand, as well as – by far – any American-made motorcycle company.

“Loretta’s is what we work for at Cobra … why we catch a couple hours sleep slumped over at a desk in our design room, living with perpetually sore backs and bloodied knuckles, all in the name of designing and building the best competition mini cycles possible for these kids,” said Sean Hilbert, President of Cobra Moto. “Loretta’s is our Super Bowl, our Daytona 500 and World Series – all wrapped into one week of the best amateur motocross racing you’ll find in the world.”

Last year at Loretta’s Utah’s Pierce Brown – aboard the Cobra Moto CX65 – made history when he won the first-ever 65cc class amateur national motocross title on an American-made dirt bike. Brown was joined in the exclusive Loretta’s champion circle by Cobra 50cc racers Ryder Di Francesco (California) and Jayden Taylor (Michigan), giving Cobra Moto three major championships in 2012.

2013 Cobra Moto Loretta’s preview


Returning to lead Cobra Moto and with two more shots at championships in the 7-8 50cc class is Di Francesco. One of the heralded “Bakersfield Boyz,” Di Francesco will have to deal with a red-hot Cobra Moto factory stable mate in Jett Reynolds, who flat out dominated both the Vegas Mini GPs and Ponca City (Okla.) this year, sweeping the Stock & Mod classes at the GPs and winning an unheard of 16 of 18 motos – in one day – on his Cobra King 50 & CX65 at Ponca!

The ever-consistent Reed Cooper (New York) joins Di Francesco and Reynolds as a favorite to podium at Loretta’s in the 7-8 class, along with Californian’s Brock Bennett and Tyler Blankenship, Florida’s Evan Ferry (son of MX great Tim Ferry) and Missouri’s Brock Lassiter.

Cobra Moto’s 50JR is expected to again run the table in the 4-6 50cc class with what Hilbert called the “One of the deepest fields in recent years.” Leading Cobra into battle on the little bikes will be California’s Haiden Deegan, son of MX/FMX great Brian Deegan, and Jordan Torres, Arizona’s Noah Gordon, Tennessee’s Casey Cochran, Texas’ Codee Samples (who won the 50cc Stock Limited class last year at Loretta’s) and Tommy LeClere and Michigan’s Cole Kish.


Cobra Moto’s picking up right where it left off in 2012 with, and it bears repeating, the first-ever 65cc Loretta’s MX championship won on an American-made bike. Top Cobra names from the 50cc 7-8 class contesting the 65cc 7-9 class include; Reynolds, Lassiter, Bennett and Cooper along with super-seven-year-old Evan Slosser (Washington), Iowa’s Gage Steburg, Colorado’s Cade Britt and New York’s Hunter Layton.

Cobra Moto Flashback … With good starts and relentless pursuit of the racers in front of him, Brown didn’t just win the 65 7-9 Stock class in 2012 – he ruled it.

Leading the first moto by nearly 30 seconds at the end of the race sent home a message – one that even a fall (and subsequent 15-second margin-of-victory over 2nd place) would back up. Two more motos with roughly nine-second victories later and Brown and the Cobra CX65 had swept the class with a 1st/1st/1st effort for Cobra’s first-ever 65cc class overall win at Loretta’s.

So can Jett Reynolds duplicate Pierce Brown’s effort from 2012? Stay tuned as action gets underway tomorrow at 11:30 a.m. (CST) at Loretta’s in the 65cc 7-9 class!

Bel-Ray Racer Jason Anderson Scores First Podium of National Motocross Career

Bel-Ray Racer Jason Anderson Scores First Podium of National Motocross Career

FARMINGDALE, N.J. (July 29, 2013) ― Round 9 of the 2013 AMA National Motocross Championship series came to scenic Spring Creek Motocross Park in Southeastern Minnesota on Saturday afternoon. Cool temperatures and overcast skies kept the track in excellent condition all day long, and the Bel-Ray racers in attendance rewarded the fans with excellent racing.

In 2013, Bel-Ray racer Jason Anderson of the Rockstar Energy Racing Team has experienced the best professional season of his young career. A Supercross main event victory in Salt Lake City in April gave him the confidence he needed to succeed coming into the outdoor series. Throughout the outdoor series, Anderson has shown improvement and this weekend at Millville, he was rewarded for his efforts with the first outdoor podium of his career. He gated well in moto one and continued to keep with the top riders in the class, eventually finishing in third place. His second moto start was not as good as the first moto, but he persevered for a fifth-place second moto finish. Based on his moto results, he earned a podium finish in third overall.

Anderson was extremely happy when he spoke about his day following the event. “Millville ended on a good note with my very first outdoor podium,” he said. “My start wasn’t very good in the second moto, but I made it work. It was sick and I felt like I was ripping!”
Joining Anderson in the 250MX class was Bel-Ray teammate and New Jersey privateer Dakota Kessler. Kessler’s father Mickey was one of the first racers sponsored by Bel-Ray in the beginning of the company, and now Dakota continues in his father’s footsteps in search of racing success. His 27-22 moto scores were good for 26th overall at Millville.
In 450MX class racing, Bel-Ray racers scored mixed results, with privateer Derek Anderson leading the way. Anderson, the star of the Man Vs Moto YouTube program that chronicles his national series, came back from a 38th place first moto to score 24th in the second moto for 27th overall. Fellow privateer Ronnie Stewart qualified into the afternoon program by winning the last-chance qualifier and finished 23-34 for 36th overall.
Bel-Ray-powered Rockstar Energy Racing’s Ryan Sipes began the event well with fifth place in timed qualifying. He started well in the first moto and was inside the top 10 in seventh place when disaster struck. A high-speed swap threw him to the ground, breaking his helmet and neck brace in the process. He was too injured to complete the first moto and did not line up for moto two.
 “Millville was a little rough. I felt really good in practice and really good in the first moto until I crashed,” Sipes said. “I swapped in the whoops and ended up landing on the back of my neck. I broke my helmet and my neck brace, a couple ribs and I think my hand. It was a tough one and I’m in a lot of pain, but what is pleasure without pain?” Sipes will meet with a doctor on Monday to determine the extent of his injuries.
The series will take a one-week break before resuming at Unadilla Valley Sports Center in New Berlin, N.Y. on August 10.

N-Fab/TiLUBE/Yamaha Motocross Round 9 Race Report

Courtesy of N-Fab

RIVERSIDE, Calif. (July 30, 2013) –This past weekend the Lucas Oil Pro Motocross Championship made its lone visit to Minnesota for the ninth round of the season. Millville's Spring Creek MX Park presented cooler temperatures than usual but the Red Bull Spring Creek National produced plenty of exciting racing action for the 31st annual event, and team N-Fab/TiLUBE/Yamaha was right in the thick of it.
Phil Nicoletti would be the sole team rider in Millville while teammate, Chris Blose, was back in California preparing for the upcoming X Games, taking place in Los Angeles this Thursday – Sunday. Nicoletti got the weekend started on the right foot qualifying easily into the motos via the 19th fastest time.
Nicoletti would rocket out of the gate for Moto 1 rounding the first turn inside the top five. Exiting the first turn disaster would strike as two other motorcycles would slam into the side of Nicoletti taking him down. Fortunately, he was not injured and was able to remount. After making a pit stop to align the front end of his YZ450 he would reenter the race almost a whole lap behind the pack. As the race passed the halfway mark, Nicoletti was riding well but struggling to make his way through the pack. Focusing on not making any mistakes and saving some energy for Moto 2, Nicoletti would make his way up to 32nd by the checkered flag.
Moto 2 would get off to a much better start for Nicoletti as he battled just outside of the top 10. At the halfway point of the Moto, Nicoletti continued to put in consistent laps as he worked to crack the top 10. In the closing laps, Nicoletti went back and forth with a handful of other riders before ultimately crossing the line with a hard earned 11th place. With a very hard crash in Moto 1, Nicoletti’s grit and determination earned him a very respectable 17th place overall.
“I got hit so hard on the start in Moto 1 I thought my leg was broken,” said Nicoletti. “My leg got caught in the rear wheel of another rider and I was lucky to get it out. My bike was bad but we made a pit stop so I could finish the moto. Moto 2 was much better even though my leg was so sore I had a hard time walking. My start was solid and I just rode a hard as I could. I had some good battles and am happy to have been so close to the top 10. Lucky for me we have a week off so I will have time to recover from this weekend. I plan on going to Loretta Lynn’s ranch for the Amateur National this week to watch and cheer on some of my friends.”
The Pro Motocross Championship will take a weekend off for the Red Bull AMA Amateur National Motocross Championship at Loretta Lynn’s ranch. TheLucas Oil Pro Motocross Championship returns on August 10th for the Built Ford Tough Unadilla National in New Berlin, New York. Be sure to stop by the N-Fab/TiLUBE/Yamaha truck to show your support and to have your picture taken with Chris Blose and Phil Nicoletti from 9:00 a.m. – 12:30 p.m. See you there!

Boyesen Announced as KTM OEM Intake Supplier

Courtesy of KTM

New for 2014, KTM Sportmotorcycle AG has selected Boyesen as an OEM intake supplier for key motocross and off-road motorcycles within their performance lineup. Boyesen has been selected as a strategic intake supplier to KTM for fitment on its line of motocross models, the 125 SX, 150 SX, and 250 SX; as well as its off-road models, including the 150 XC, 250 XC, and 300 XC; as well as the XC-W models: 200 XC-W, 250 XC-W, 300 XC-W. Boyesen is proud that KTM has entered into this new working relationship with us and we are confident that our potent intake products will complement KTM’s performance expectation right off the showroom floor and bring even greater satisfaction to riders throughout the world.
The new business partnership between KTM-Sportmotorcycle AG and Boyesen Engineering is based on the continual research and development required to manufacture advanced make/model/year specific performance solutions for the ever-evolving 2-stroke offroad segment. KTM has selected Boyesen as their OEM supply partner due to the Boyesen legacy of race-proven, air-intake research and development testing in an ongoing effort to achieve higher peak horsepower gains and has worked hand-in-hand to develop the current performance intake system for 2014.
“Boyesen relies on research and development partnerships, similar to what we are now activating with KTM, to contribute to the ongoing refinement of our product design process. At the same time, we feel privileged to help advance the winning potential of some of KTM’s new exciting two-stroke models. We are pleased to be selected as their OEM intake supplier and look forward to creating deeper partnership relations reaching beyond 2014,” said president of Boyesen, Dag Boyesen. Furthermore Dag states, “The racing heritage and hi-end intake performance experience of Boyesen, coupled with the impressive technological superiority of KTM’s current MX, and Offroad 2-stroke products will surely have the industry taking notice, and as a result will continually position Boyesen products as the superior choice for 2-stroke performance for years to come ”.
The OEM KTM Boyesen performance Reed System has been designed to increase throttle response and acceleration, while also broadening peak RPM horsepower output, all while having been life tested to out-perform previous systems in the area of reed petal durability. Smooth. Sharp. Smart. The result: Full Spectrum horsepower and lightning – fast response for 2014 KTM owners.
FEATURING RC2 Ultra-Flow Technology
For the past year Boyesen and KTM’s combined R&D approach to intake system performance has yielded an innovative solution to intake system design; starting with the needs of KTM’s riders and ending with the perfect intake solution for each intended MX and Offroad application. Based on KTM’s design specifications and performance parameters, Boyesen selected the best carbon reed material, and worked to precisely specify final reed tensions to maximize airflow and air velocity, the two most prominent ingredients of 2-stroke intake performance. Together, KTM and Boyesen performance intake innovations are creating a new technological benchmark in MX and Offroad intake performance. These innovations will set the stage for the future of 2-stroke performance air intake for years to come.
The most durable materials. The most lifespan.
Boyesen’s new Performance Reed systems feature category-leading toughening additives to increase reed petal lifespan by resisting breakdown from damaging agents found in fuel. This is done to ensure a long-lasting seal between the petals and the intake tract time and time again, which results in more consistent horsepower for longer periods of time between general intake reed maintenance.
X-Cross Carbon Matrix
The best carbon material. The most intelligent performance carbon weave.
Boyesen’s XCROSS carbon matrix woven reeds feature aerospace carbon material interwoven into tension combinations that maximize power delivery and deliver superior off-idle throttle response. Boyesen engineers specifically tune the carbon matrix tension using a proprietary weave formula that is tested and optimized to give the best response and the most usable power delivery for KTM owners world-wide.

Bel-Ray Racers Score Top 20 Results at Red Bud

FARMINGDALE, N.J. (July 8, 2013) ―The 4th of July holiday weekend means just one thing for United States motocross fans -- Red Bud. The famous track situated in Buchanan, Michigan has hosted an AMA National since 1974, and the hot humid mid-west weather typically lends itself to excellent racing. Bel-Ray racers would compete in both the 250MX and 450MX classes to mixed results.

250MX class racing was led by Bel-Ray-backed Rockstar Energy Racing’s Jason Anderson. The New Mexico native has been showing flashes of speed for several weeks now but unfortunately hasn’t found the podium in this highly competitive class. At Red Bud, Anderson qualified second overall in timed qualifying and was poised to make a run at the top spot. While running inside the top 10 early in the moto, Anderson came together with another racer, damaging the spokes on both his wheels. A pit stop was necessary to change both wheels, and the time lost put him behind the field, from where he could only manage a 34th place finish. The second moto was much better for Anderson, as he charged through the pack from an early position outside the top 15 to a respectable 6th place finish. He was credited with 13th overall and remains at 6th place in the points standings after 7 of 12 rounds. “My day was pretty good; well, kind of good. I ended up like 34-6 but by the 34th I was riding really good,” said Anderson following the second moto. “I just had bad luck and in the 6th I had a bad gate pick and was just working through the pack the whole time. So I ended up OK.”
Bel-Ray privateers, New Jersey’s Dakota Kessler and Pennsylvania’s Steve Roman, also had good finishes at Red Bud. Kessler’s 22-23 moto scores earned him 25th overall, while Roman’s 35-37 moto scores were good for 38th overall.
In 450 class racing action, Bel-Ray-backed Rockstar Energy Racing’s Ryan Sipes led the Bel-Ray racers' results. His 13th overall was a result of 12-14 moto scores. The results are not an indication of his speed, as Sipes is often one of the fastest racers on the track during the moto. Sipes spoke with some disappointment following the second moto. “It was a bad weekend; well, not awful. I’m healthy and everything. I’m just kind of struggling a little bit. I don’t know; I need to get my ducks in a row. I don’t wanna ride around in the back, so I’m looking forward to Washougal.”
Bel-Ray privateers also showed good finishes at Red Bud. Michigan’s Nick Wey has shown promise on his return to racing from a serious injury last season. His 17-16 moto finishes were good for 17th overall, followed by Colorado privateer Derek Anderson in 26th with 27-21 finishes and New Jersey’s Ronnie Stewart’s 25-24 for 27th overall.
All of Bel-Ray's professional racers rely on the performance advantages Bel-Ray's complete line of  lubricants provide. One of the products they choose is:
Bel-Ray® Works Thumper® Racing Full Synthetic Ester 4T Engine Oil is one of the products chosen by the teams to keep their machines performing their best.

Tomac & Hahn signed for 2014 and beyond on 450′s

Courtesy of Geico Honda

CORONA, Calif. (July 5) – The GEICO Honda race team has a enviable reputation for developing young motocross riders into world champions, while also providing legends like Mike LaRocco and Kevin Windham a place to cement their legacies.
The 2014 season will a mark a significant transition in this established philosophy as GEICO Honda owners Rick Zielfelder, Jeff Majkrzak and Mike Grondahl expand their stable to include two 450cc riders, both of whom are being promoted from within theteamranks.
Starting with the 2014 Monster Energy AMA Supercross season-opener in Anaheim, Calif., champion 250cc riders Eli Tomac and Wil Hahn will move up to ride for GEICO Honda in the elite 450cc class.
Following in Trey Canard and Justin Barcia’s footsteps, Tomac will be the third GEICO Honda rider to reach the pinnacle of the sport after joining the team as a fresh-faced amateur. The Cortez, Colorado, native was in his early teens when he first caught the eye of Zielfelder. It’s been a partnership that’s produced dozens of race wins and the 2012 Supercross 250SX West title.
“As an amateur, GEICO Honda was a team you looked up to,” Tomac said. “They always had a great 250 team and legendary guys like Mike LaRocco and Kevin Windham on their 450. What we’re doing now is a step in a new direction. It’s going to be like a whole new program. To be one of the first guys to make it happen is really cool.”
After a breakout season in 2009, Hahn joined the team for the 2010 season. Unfortunately, in his first race with the team, he broke his back during practice and spent the bulk of the next two seasons recovering from various injuries. Despite the setbacks, Hahn’s presence became a valued one on the team and the group’s patience was rewarded this season when Hahn won two races on the way to the 250SX East title.
“I didn’t start with them as an amateur, but I feel like I have,” Hahn said. “I was around the team a lot when I was younger hanging out with my brother Tommy. I’ve always felt love from this team and I’m honored they asked me to ride the 450 for them.
“They stuck behind me during times when a lot of teams would have let me go. They saw something in me, they kept me on, and it paid off for both sides.”
Majkrzak said that expanding to two 450 riders is a big step but one the team has been working toward for a long time.
“We only wanted to expand to two 450 riders if we could do it the right way,” Majkrzak said. “We wanted to make sure our major partners — GEICO, Honda and AMSOIL — were ready and willing to go on this ride with us. The timing was perfect and we’re excited for the team’s future with Eli and Wil leading the way for our 250cc and amateur teams.”
Tomac and Hahn both said they’re excited to make the transition to the top class in familiar surroundings.
“Moving to a 450 is a big enough step as it is,” Tomac said. “I would imagine that the transition would be a lot harder if you’ve got to learn a new motorcycle and a new team. I won’t have to do that. I already know this inside and out. I’m excited to get started.”
Hahn echoed those thoughts, adding that success as a professional is as much about attitude as it is about parts and pieces.
“Riding for a factory 450 team is something you dream about as a kid,” Hahn said. “Everyone on the team has a constant drive and determination to want to win. Everyone works together for that goal.
“The great part of it is, everything is staying the same: familiar surroundings, same Factory Connection suspension, same engine guy, a Honda motorcycle and the family atmosphere. There’s a lot to be said for that.”
The Supercross world will get a preview of GEICO Honda’s new 450 duo when they take to the track at the Oct. 19 Monster Energy Cup at Sam Boyd Stadium in Las Vegas.
