What makes a champion motocrosser? It’s a question many of us mere mortals have asked often.
The five men who star in MOTO 84 all know exactly what it takes to be a winner. Tony Cairoli, Ryan Dungey, Jeffrey Herlings, Mel Pocock and the great Ricky Carmichael were all winners in 2012, all champions, and it these heroes of our sport we salute in MOTO’s Champions special issue.
Exclusively in MOTO we profile, probe and honour these five men who won big this summer, whether first time champ or retired god returning to his amateur roots. Not forgetting the record AMA champ turned Indy car racer turned team owner Jeff Ward, who lays out his forthright views in another exclusive ‘I know this Much’ too.
Bikes new and old take centre stage in MOTO 84 too. Not only does MOTO have the first UK tests of the hotly anticipated new 2013 Honda CRF450 and Suzuki’s flagship RMZ450, but MOTO’s chief test ace Dave Willet also rides the factory Kawasaki bikes of Gautier Paulin and Xavier Boog, whilst MOTO’s own resident star spanner man Doc Wobs recounts his epic efforts to restore five KX500 two-strokes for Team USA legends to race at the Farleigh Castle VMXdN.
With more exclusive enduro content in the shape of an extremely frank interview with David Knight, racing action from the Farleigh Vets race and the Langrish British champs showdown and a whole lot more, MOTO 84 is another packed issue.
And if that wasn’t enough, you also get another entirely free magazine with the issue too – UMX Magazine 2, a packed 82-pages featuring all the 2013 proucts from the likes of Thor, Ogio and Asterisk. Enjoy.
