Motorcycle Monday … Dirty In France And Nitro At The MGM Grand In Las Vegas!!

Ever wonder what Nitro stars to do calm down and relax between shows??

See for yourself at the end of this blog!!  First, we’re heading to France!!!!!!!

95-5 KLAQ Rox!! Time again for Motorcycle Monday, brought to us by Santa Teresa Motorsports! Located at 910 Livingston in the Upper Valley .. great prices and a great selection. Of eeeeeverything; street bikes, dirt bikes, quads. Also accesories, parts and quality work!! Stop by and see them .. as gas prices continue to rise, a new Victory would be just the ticket for gas savings .. and lots of fun!!

Learn more about them at  www.motorsportsofnewmexico.com!!

Bikes and babes ... niiiiice!! :)

Ok, here we go …

 The 2011 World Motocross Championships continued this weekend from France!! Yes, France .. more than just wine and surrender classes there! (Somehow, they managed to get through the weekend without any of the American riders trying to jump the Eiffel tower or “step up” onto the Louve!!)

The home court advantage certainly seemed to work for Steven Frossard as he wins the first race of MX1 and takes second in the second!! Belgian Clement Desalle wipes out in the first race of moto1 and winds up back near last, but rides his way to an 11th place finish. Then turns around and wins the 2nd race!! NICE!!

In MX2, the Americans are loose!! Championship points leader Ken Roczen showing what he’s got with a win in the first race but trouble in the 2nd. A couple of crashes leave him reeling, but he still winds up taking 5th. God bless America! Awesome for having to deal with those wipeouts!!

Points wise, he’s leading now in MX2 with 226 ……. next comes Jeffrey Herlings with 213 and Tommy Searle .. an english bloke .. in 3rd with 199!!

Locally, the memorial run for Bandido Lt. Dan went well. Much love and respect to all who showed up to remember Dan and help out his family. A few hundred bikes in that one and the parade looked awesome!!

Sundays Rising Eagle run also seemed to have a good showing. Thanks to all who attended that one! There it went fastest couple of minutes in radio!!
