California No More

Published April 13th, 2003





Three Anaheims, a San Francisco, a San Diego, a San Bernardino, a Sacramento … remember all those big AMA races in California? No more for 2003! The series heads east now for outdoor motocross as it should be.



The first two outdoor races were held in CA, with lots of sunshine. The 125 class is wide open, as the top two from last year are out with injury – James Stewart and Branden Jessseman. Mike Brown, a rejuvenated Ryan Hughes, Grant Langston, and Eric Sorby at the top of the heap in ’03 so far.



In the 250′s, Ricky Carmichael has won both events overall. But Kevin Windham has provided some buzz with his speed and moto win at Hangtown. Chad Reed has continued his amazing USA 250 rookie season by running right behind RC in the point standings. And Tim Ferry just keep on chugging on his 450 four-stroke.



Below are some photos from the first two events.
