JMB (Jean-Michel Bayle) was one of the most talented, smooth, and in the USA, enigmatic riders ever.





He won World Motocross Championships, and then came to the USA. In 1991 he won everything in AMA Motocross: the 250 Supercross Series, the 250 National Series, and the 500 National Series. Something that’s never been done before.





RJ says “Promoters sometimes built up a rivalry of ‘us’ (USA) vs. ‘them’ (foreign riders), and some people also misunderstood JMB because of language barrier, but he was a good guy & a great rider.”

Mammoth Mountain Motocross – June 21 thru June 24, 2007

Mammoth Mountain Motocross – June 21 thru June 24, 2007





This was my first time going to Mammoth. I had heard about it for years, with so many people telling me ‘You gotta go to Mammoth dude! It’s awesome! It’s like a moto ritual that you have to do at least once in your life!’ (And there are some people that have been at every event since it’s existence starting in 1968!)



Mammoth is unique. It’s not just the track. It’s the drive up there (usually done with family and/or friends), the town (a small, beautiful mountain community), and the scenery (the stunning Sierra Nevada Mountains of California). It’s also the camaraderie between everyone there, the track (perfectly manicured, winding thru the pine trees high up in the mountains), and of course, the fun factor of everything put together.

Budds Creek MX Park





Budds Creek MX Park, which will host the 2007 Motocross of Nations in September, was the site of today’s AMA National Motocross.



In the 450 Motocross class, defending National Motocross Champion Ricky Carmichael did what’s he’s done in each of the previous three rounds – race with James Stewart, and take the overall win. Today, Ricky finished second in the first moto (to Stewart), and then passed Stewart for the lead late in moto 2, going on to win. This win marks Carmichael’s 100th AMA National Motocross victory – a record.



Second overall was James Stewart. James won the first moto, leading every lap. In the second moto, he led for most of the moto, until Carmichael made his pass. So, Stewart goes 1/2 for second overall.



Chad Reed raced his first (and probably only) national of the year, which gives him good practice & set-up as he’ll ride for Team Australia in the Motocross of Nations. He also finished third overall today with finishes of 3/4.



In the 250 Lites class, defending National Champion Ryan Villipoto won both motos by large margins. Second was Villipoto’s team-mate and top competitor for this year’s championship chase, Ben Townley. Ben scored 2/2. Third overall went to Jason Lawrence, who finished 3/3.



Happy Father’s Day 2007!

Motocross 338





Ricky Carmichael wins 450 class, Townley & Villipoto battle in 250 class, with Townley scoring overall





In the 450 Motocross class, it was definitely a Ricky Carmichael day. In the first moto, James Stewart led the first two-thirds of the race over Ricky Carmichael. RC went by Stewart for the lead on lap 12, and held it until the end of the race. Stewart finished second. Grant Langston had a nice ride in third.



In the second moto, it was all Ricky Carmichael. Second was James Stewart, third was another nice ride by Grant Langston on the Yamaha YZ 450.



Ricky Carmichael is the defending 450 National Champion, and is riding only the first six rounds of the 12 event series (he’s moving on to race ‘late-model’ stock cars). Wouldn’t that be ironic if he’s leading the point standings after those first six rounds? The point standings right now have Carmichael on top with 147, Stewart is second with 131 points.





In the 250 Lites class, it’s shaping up to be a battle between two members of the Kawasaki/Pro-Circuit team – National Champion Ryan Villipoto, and former World Champion Ben Townley.



In the first moto, Ryan Villipoto was out front early, and beat team-mate Townley to the checkered flag. In the second moto, Villipoto fell, giving a slight advantage to Townley, who went on to win the moto.



Both Townley and Villipoto tied on points for the day (47 each), but it’s Townley with the overall victory based on a second moto tie-breaker. Ryan Dungey scored third overall with 3/3 finishes on the day.



The points have Villipoto in front with 138, and Townley second with 130.



Notes: Southwick is one of the most unique tracks on the entire circuit because of it’s sand – it’s very sandy, and gets very bumpy and rough as the day goes on. Fast lap times today were just under 2 minutes. Southwick legend John Dowd raced today, finishing 10/9 in the 450 class. Also, there was a benefit auction to help another Southwick legend, Doug Henry. (Doug was injured earlier this year riding at a Supermoto event.) Tim Ferry was running in third place in the first moto, but came around one lap very slowly, looking down at the motor, eventually pulling off the track.
