(Matt Goerke)

The AMSOIL Arenacross Series makes a stop in Nashville, TN for Round 4 of that tour.  Monster Energy Babbitt’s Kawasaki’s Matt Goerke has a 12 point lead over teammate Jacob Hayes heading into the action which means he gets to run the red plate again, but this year’s races have shown us some crazy action so we will all have to wait and see who comes out on top.

Jan 29 - Andrew Delong

(Andrew Delong)

Another series makes its 2015 debut when Round 1 of the Kenda AMA National Enduro circuit hits the trails in Sumter, SC this Sunday.  Last year’s champion Andrew Delong will be looking for a good result on his Factory Husqvarna.  Andrew was quoted as saying, “It’s a long season and you need to be consistent”.  This year Andrew will be joined by his new teammate, and new rider to this series, Josh Strang.  Rounding out the Moose Racing effort will be Factory Beta’s Cory Buttrick and Airgroup Racing’s Ryder Lafferty.  We wish everyone the best of luck.

Jan 26 - Jacob_Hayes_ArenaCross

(Jacob Hayes)

The Babbitt’s Monster Energy Kawasaki Arenacross Team continued their winning ways over the weekend at Round 3 of the AMSOIL AMA Arenacross Series in Colorado Springs, CO.  This time it was Jacob Hayes’ turn as he grabbed the overall win on Friday night.  His teammates kept the pressure on, but Jacob got the win and gained some valuable championship points.  Matt Goerke joined Hayes on the podium with a 3rd place overall finish.

On Saturday night the racing took a turn to the wild side and some crashes kept the team from an overall win, but Hayes made a return trip to the box with a 3rd place overall finish.  Goerke was right behind him in 4th, retained the overall Championship point’s lead and with it the red number plate.

Jan 26 - Phil Nicoletti LCQ Win Podium

(Phil Nicoletti)

The AMA Monster Energy Supercross Series made a stop in Oakland, CA for Round 4 of that series.  Our very own Phil Nicoletti finally got his shot as he was filling in for an injured teammate on board his JGR Yamaha Racing Factory YZ450F.  Understandably, Phil was a bit rusty, but progressed nicely as the night went on.  He ended up winning the LCQ and with it some valuable podium time.  Nicoletti then went out and finished 14th overall in the main event.  After the race he was quoted as saying, “The main event went OK.  I’m glad to get through the first race, the jitters and the hectic schedule.  Now I am looking forward to next weekend in Anaheim.”  We are confident Phil will keep improving.

(Phil Nicoletti)

The AMA Monster Energy Supercross Series heads north up the coast of California for Round 4 this weekend.  Saturday night’s action will be at the Oakland Coliseum and Moose Racing’s Phil Nicoletti has been called into action by the JGR Yamaha Team.  Nicoletti has been working hard behind the scenes the last few months testing equipment for the team and honing his riding skills.  An injured teammate now means that Phil will park the practice bike, get on a plane and get to work on his Factory Yamaha YZ450F.  Nicoletti was quoted as saying, “I’m bummed for my teammate as he has had some good results going, but I am a racer and I want to race!”  We are excited to see him finally get his chance in the premier class.

Arenacross Sees Two Wild Nights of Action In Michigan

Jan 19 - Nicoletti

(Phil Nicoletti)

The Moose Racing semi attended Round 3 of the AMA Monster Energy Supercross Series at Angels’ Stadium in Anaheim, CA over the past weekend.  A prime location in the pits, and beautiful weather overhead provided a steady flow of fans stopping by our area to enjoy our displays.  We also participated in a Parts Unlimited dealer showcase on Thursday evening and JGR Yamaha’s Phil Nicoletti stopped by to mingle with our dealers.  He was also on hand at our semi for a large part of the afternoon on Saturday where he signed autographs and spent time with fans.

Jan 19 - Matt Goerke red plate

(Matt Goerke)

The AMSOIL Arenacross Series headed to Grand Rapids, MI and saw a couple of wild nights of racing on Friday and Saturday.  Monster Energy Babbitt’s Kawasaki Team rider Jacob Hayes won the overall on Friday night and was joined on the podium by teammate Matt Goerke in 3rd place.  Saturday night was a whole, new race and both riders had their ups and downs.  When the dust cleared it was Goerke who left the venue with the red plate and is the current championship point’s leader.  Unfortunately, some crashes kept Zach Ames out both nights and also put Chris Blose on the sidelines Saturday night.  Both riders will get some much needed rest during the week and are sure to come out swinging when the series hits town in Colorado Springs, CO this coming weekend.

WORCS Racing made its 2015 debut in Taft, CA this weekend as well and our very own Justin Seeds just missed the podium with a 4th place overall finish.  Justin was close all day, but couldn’t reel in the leaders on the last lap.

Viladoms Forced to Retire with Electrical Problems

Viladoms-Stage8-Dakar15

It was touch and go whether the bikes would even depart due to the heavy rains and adverse conditions however organizers took the decision to race and it was to bring the end for many riders.   Stage 8 started with a high speed dash across the Bolivian salt flats of Uyuni and then returned riders back into the mountains and the dunes of Chile’s Atacama Desert.

The combination of salt and rain was a disastrous combination for many riders and Viladoms was not spared from the mayhem.  After assisting team-mate Marc Coma at a refueling point to help unclog his machine Viladoms himself fell victim to an electrical problem and was forced to retire from the Dakar.

Viladoms: “This stage should have never have started. Last night we thought that the morning start would be canceled and we could not believe that the organziers took the decision to go ahead.  I knew that the salt and water combination would be a mechanical disaster and that the electronics would suffer.  The result was inevetiable – and now I’m out of the Dakar as are many other riders. The organizers did nottake into account the safety of the riders and this is the result. “

vildams-stage6-dakar15-1

The 6th and final stage before the deserved rest day in the city of Iquique has seen riders face 688 kilometers with a 318km special.

The early morning liason took riders along the coast to Tocopilla to find the starting point of the special. Viladoms experienced a day he wouldrather forget. The KTM rider missed the fourth waypoint and after realizinghis error it was too late to turn back.  He ended the stage in 29th spot with penalties and dropped to 11th in the overall stadings..

The rally will resume on Sunday after a well deserved day of rest.  Stage 7 will see the riders enter Bolivia with certain high altitudes.  There are still 4,854 kilometers, with 2,747 of special left of the 2015 Dakar.

Viladoms: “At the fifth waypoint I realized that I missed the fourth waypoint, but had no choice but to keep going because returning would have cost more time than the penalty. I have to learn from mistakes and move on.”

Stage 8 will see a return to Uyuni across the same lake with a timed stage consisting of 781km.

Viladoms: “This has been a  long and very demanding stage on all levels, but I feel good and this is important given that we are in Bolivia, and here things are always complicated because of the altitude. I tried to keep a good pace while riding safe as there was no mechanical assistance today and the second part of the marathon stage will also take it’s toll.”
