Jay Gleason rode a fleet of 1985 
Yamahas at Baylands Raceway in 
Fremont, California recently and 
came back with a fleet of quick 
and fast times for stock motorcy- 
cles. Riding a V-Max, Gleason

@ 124.13 mph. Times for the 
Maxim XJ700X were 11.32 sec. 
@ 116.58; the air-cooled Maxim 
XJ700 went 11.81 sec. 9 110.29 
mph; the FJ600 went 11.78 sec.

The mysterious aluminum box lo- 
cated near the carburetor on the 
new works 250cc Honda is now 
rumored to be a battery holder. 
The battery supplies juice for an 
electronic ATAC system. After 
every race, the battery takes about 
20 minutes to be recharged and is 
very similar to batteries used in 
remote-controlled cars. 


Contrary to a rumor circulating in 
several parts of the country, all U.S. 
helmet manufacturers have not lost 
their product liability insurance en 
masse. А few companies experienced 
a problem when their insurance car- 
rier folded, but replacement coverage 
was quickly obtained. 


A delegation from Tientsin, China 
has purchased the bankrupt West 
German Zundapp factory and will 
ship the entire operation to China. 
А team from Iran also bid on the 
plant, but its offer did not reach 
the government-appointed receiver 
in time. The Chinese paid 16 mil- 
lion Deutschemarks (about $6 
million). 


Kawasaki sponsored a remake of Peter 
Starr's Take It To The Limit; the 
new version of the movie is called 
Taking It To The Limit and includes 
new film featuring Jeff Ward and 
Wayne Rainey, as well as drag racers 
Nigel Patrick and Russ Collins. The 
film debuted in Corpus Christi, Texas 
and Long Beach, California recently. 


The Cicero, New York Town Board 
recently unanimously voted to fire 
patrolman Joseph Barrett for en- 
gaging in a high-speed, dirt-road 
pursuit. The problem was that Bar- 
rett was in pursuit of a 12-year-old 
boy riding an ATV, and that he 
gave chase in a full-size police car. 
Both the boy and Barrett were 
slightly injured when the ATV 
struck a stone-covered culvert, 
launched into the air, and crashed 
through the cruiser's windshield. 
Fortunately, the boy escaped ser- 
ious injury by being thrown clear 
of the collision. Damage to the 
police cruiser's windshield and un- 
dercarriage was estimated at 
$2,300. 


Kawasaki's Team Green privateer- 
support program will have a truck at 
the Huron, Hollister Hills and Lake 
Madera rounds of the CMC/Skoal 
Golden State Series in California. 


Phoenix Road Racing Organization 
(PRRO) has just announced their 
1985 officers. Returning as presi- 
dent is Kevin Elliott; Jeff Ander- 
son is vice president; Doug Lind- 
say secretary; and Tom Krause 
treasurer. Board members at large 
for the new term are Greg Wing, 
Randy Bechtel and Nick Nicolini. 
All PRRO officers are also racers. 








Тһе NMRA's drag racing schedule is 
still in the works according to 
NMRA's Jim Harris. “What we have 
finalized is what we will run Pro 
Stock. only at six National Hot Rod 
Association Nationals during the 
year," said Harris. “Plans right now 
do not call for any Top Fuel or 
Funny Bike competition to be run at 
car nationals. We are still working on 
a lot of things including a schedule 
for our all-bike meets." 


The Dirt Diggers North Motorcycle 
Club will host amateur sportsman 
motocross at Hangtown on March 
30, the day before the March 31 
Pro races. Entries are limited and 
the only entry form will be pub- 
lished in Cycle News issue #6, 
dated February 20. 


Ken Maely, famous maker of dirt 
track steel skid shoes, cannot make 
the Houston Astrodome Camel Pro 
Series opening round due to injuries 
suffered last year. Maely, who has 
attended every Houston race, still 
hasn't regained his eyesight since the 
June 1984 accident, so he can't deliver 
steel shoes to the event. More infor- 
mation is available from Maely at 
714/735-0540. 


Kawasaki will provide a KLT110 
three-wheeler to be given away at 
each of the remaining Great Amer- 
ican Motorcycle & ATV Shows. A 
Yamaha V-Max will be up for a 
free drawing at Atlanta, San Fran- 
cisco and Philadelphia. At the Chi- 
cago Show, Suzuki has provided a 
V-4 Madura for a special drawing. 
At several shows, local dealers 
will use motorcycle drawings to 
attract showgoers to their booths. 
The consumer show series con- 
tinues in Atlanta January 18-20, 
бап Francisco January 25-27, Chi- 
cago February 15-17, and Phila- 
delphia March 15-17. 


Construction is near completion on 
new riders' lounges, including show- 
ers, at Willow Springs International 
Raceway. The lounges should be 
ready for the first ARRA road race of 
the season. 


Pat Owens of Los Angeles Trade- 
Technical College is quick to point 
out that Yoshimura R&D of Amer- 
ica mechanics Don Sakakura and 
David Wolman, seen in Cycle 
News, December 19, are graduates 
of the college's motorcycle repair 
program. Owens also proudly 
names Trade-Tech graduate Bill 
West, recently hired by Husqvarna 
Motor Co. And according to 
Owens, motorcycle labs and lec- 
ture rooms at the college have 
new paint and the latest posters in 
place for the semester starting this 
month, and that's as good a reason 
to select a college as anything. 
More information is available from 
the college at 400 West Washing- 
ton Blvd., Los Angeles, CA 90015. 


SCORE International and High De- 
sert Racing Assn. (HDRA) will coop- 
erate on a desert-race series in 1985; 
points toward series championships 
will be paid at three SCORE and 
three HDRA events. More informa- 
tion is available from HDRA at 702/

Rare bike: this prototype, 1000cc three-cylinder BMW never madeit into 
production — instead, the four-cylinder K100 was built and sold. 














Before deciding on the five-valves-per-cylinder inline-four FZ750 engine, 
Yamaha engineers experimented with this seven-valves-per-cylinder V- 
four with eight spark plugs and four double-barrel carburetors. The engine 
revved to 20,000 rpm and featured an alternator positioned between the 
cylinder banks. The close-up view shows the top of the cylinder head, with 
the cam cover and camshafts removed.

MX benefits 


I am well aware of the dangers of 
motorcycle racing, as I have four sons 
who race. 

As a doctor, I have seen many 
a motorcycle accident and injury. 

But this sport of motocross racing 
has many more advantages than dis- 
advantages. The positive outlet that 
it gives toour youth cannot be empha- 
sized enough. The athletic prowess, 
the confidence it builds, the sports- 
manship, the knowledge of mechan- 
ics, the knowledge of economics, and 
the responsibilities involved, are all 
positives. 

I for one do not worry about drugs, 
bad habits, or lack of discipline with 
my sons. The drive for goal orienta- 
tion is superbly filled by this fine 
sport, and the striving for goals is 
what this country had been founded 
on and what has made it great. 

None of my sons expect to be pro- 
fessional racers, but the discipline 
required to be just barely adequate in 
this sport is again a positive in my 
book of values. 

My 16-year-old son has been se- 
verely injured twice in his racing 
career. His latest injury last month 
will probably keep him from com- 
peting in this sport forever. But the 
lessons learned were still worth it: 
Ask him. 

Yes, there have been tragedies, but 
is this not true also in football and 
other contact sports? All physical 
endeavors require some risks. Any- 
thing of value requires a risk. 

Saddleback Park has become an 
institution is our sport. The mechan- 
ical innovations; the levels of skill 
developed; the boy’s club atmosphere; 
the comradery; the development of 
young men to be proud of at Saddle- 
back Park, are all positives. 

This country was founded on find- 
ing the solution to problems, not 
shutting down because of them. 

The unfortunate tragedies which 
occured at Saddleback Park can never 
and should never be erased. But in the 
spirit of our founders and forefathers, 
let us find an adequate solution. 
Turning our backs on a problem is 
not in the best traditions of our great 
country.

One main event 


I'd have to agree that one main 
event is all that's needed in Super- 


cross. Look what happens at the 


Carlsbad USGP when two riders fin- 
ish each of the two motos with the 
same score. No one knows who won 
the race until someone tells the fans 
over the P.A. system. By then most of 
the fans are on their way to the park- 
ing lot without knowing who won 
апа are confused. On Wide World of 
Sports they had to explain the results. 
It seems every time the AMA is 
involved everything gets confusing. 
Look at road racing for example. 
Тһеу either run one-leg or two-leg 
events in the same series. Now that is 
confusing to fans and racers alike!

Roxy Rockwood tells us in the 
January 9th issue of Cycle News that 
tapes of the 1984 San Jose Mile and 
Anglo-American Match Races are now 
available through our Honda deal- 
ers. ABC's Wide World of Sports, 
which aired the San Jose race last 
spring, was alsoat the San Jose Short 
Track National the night before the 
taped footage of that race too. What 
happened to that? Do you know if 
they have plans of televising it? Since 
both San Jose Nationals were won by 
Shobert on Hondas, will Honda make 
the short track tape available too? 

I would also like to know if anyone 
has a good video tape of the 1983 
Houston Nationals — including the 





Junior Invitationals. Either short 
track or TT or both. Since my son, 
Charlie, won the Junior short track 
event and placed second in the ТТ, 
this is what I'm most interested in, 
although Terry Poovey’s ride in that 
short track National from row three 
to take the win would always make 
great viewing. 

If anyone has a good tape, or 
knows who does, please contact me.

Utah riding 


In the wake of the Great California 
Wilderness Disaster, I think it would 
be safe to say, “Dirt riders don't get 
no respect." Well; if we can't earn 
respect, maybe we can bwy it! Utah's 
congressmen understand money; write 
to them and tell them you'd spend it 
here if there wasa great place to come 
and ride. 

There is! An area with hundreds of 
miles of abandoned uranium explo- 
ration roads, sand washes, 1000-foot- 
deep canyons, narrow cracks barely 
handlebar wide and acres and acres of 
steep smooth slickrock. 

A year ago I proposed to Utah's 
congressmen that this area, the 40 by 
60 mile San Rafael Swell in 
southeastern Utah, should become 
the first national ORV Recreation 
Area. One senator replied, “*...innova- 
tive" and, ..."Iwould havenoproblem 
considering your proposal." Of course 
the enviro-whackos want to take away 
one quarter of a million acres of the 
best riding and make it into wilder- 
ness. 

So now it's time for you to decide: 
more wilderness or more riding. Are 
you going to sit on your thumbs and 
let this opportunity go by or are you 
going to write one (or more) simple 
letters(s) saying that the needs of off- 
road users should be recognized, that 
we need a national recreation facility, 
that the бап Rafael Swell should 
become that facility and that you 
would come to such a facility and 
spend the almighty tourist dollar?

Let’s turn the tide and start de- 
manding the national recognition 
that our sport deserves. Right now 
the wimps in their waffle-stompers 
are walking (literally) all over our 
turf! You don't have hair if you don't 
write.

CMC/Skoal Bandit Golden State 
Nationals: Round 3 





Sunrise GSN wins 
to Whiting, 
Lechien, Fisher 


By Kit Palmer 
ADELANTO, CA, JAN. 20 


The third round of Continental Motosport 
Club's/Skoal Bandit Golden State Nationals 
moved to southern California at Sunrise 
Cycle Park. Not even Team Honda's Johnny 


O'Mara could stop А.]. Whit- 
ing and Suzuki from winning 
the 125cc Pro class, for the 
second week inarow. Whiting 
used a 2-1 combo to top O'Mara's 1-3 
tally. Whiting's teammate, Erik 
Kehoe, went 3-2 for third overall. “1 
felt really good out there,” said Whit- 
ing. “We got the bike working great 
between motos and that helped make 
the difference.” 

The 250cc class was full of national 
superstars including Golden State 
newcomers Bob Hannah, Billy Liles, 
Danny LaPorte, Alan King and Micky 
Dymond. Most of the riders were 
preparing for the Supercross opener 
in San Diego next week. Broc Glover, 
who has topped the 500cc class dur- 
ing the first two rounds of the Golden 
State Nationals, and Keith Bowen, 
who has been riding 125s during the 
first two rounds, switched to the 250cc 
class this week. But it was factory 
Honda rider Lechien who emerged 
with the win. Kawasaki's Jeff Ward 
pressured Lechien in both motos but 
came up short. “I've been trying to 
shake a bad cold all week," said 
Ward. “I just ran out of energy.” 

With Glover moving to the 250cc 
class, the 500cc class win was up for 
grabs. Honda's Mike Fisher made his 
debut appearance at the GSN and 
easily won both motos. Another Hon- 
da rider, Mike Larson, rode consist- 





ently and placed second each outing. 
125cc Pro 


Kehoe shot to the front of the pack 
at the start of the first 125cc Pro class, 
closely followed by O'Mara, Suzuki's 
Whiting and Mike Healey, Honda's 
Larry Brooks and Kawasaki rider 
Craig Canoy. 

Before the end of the first lap, 
O'Mara had slipped past Kehoe, while 
Whiting began pressuring his team- 
mate. А few turns later, Whiting 
nipped Kehoe and tried to catch 
O‘Mara, who was riding a produc- 
tion CR125. O'Mara managed to pull 
a slight lead by the third lap, while 
Brooks crashed in the whoops. Brooks 
quickly recovered but had already 
lost five positions. 

Meanwhile, O'Mara enjoyed about 
a seven-second lead on Whiting, but 
at that point, O'Mara's lead dwindled 
to only a few seconds. “Не (O'Mara) 
went off the track, and I caught up to 
him a little bit," said Whiting, "then 
I just stayed with him." 

From then on, O'Mara held on to 
his slim lead to take the win. Follow- 
ing O'Mara to the checkered flag 
were a trio of Suzuki riders: Whiting, 
Kehoe and Doug Dubach. Brooks 
finished fifth ahead of Brian Manley 
and Canoy. 

“I felt like I was riding good,” said 
Whiting, “but the bike just wasn't 


working right for me to catch Johnny. 





I'm really going to try and beat him 
next time. 

"My arms pumped up pretty bad 
by the third lap," said Kehoe. "After 
Johnny and А.). got by me, I lost the 
coordination in my fingers from my 
arms pumping up. I dropped off the 
pacea little bit towards the end of the 
moto. But a few laps from the end, 
they. loosened up, and I started feel- 
ing better. I don't think he (O'Mara) 
is unbeatable. I think I can beat him 
in the second moto." 

Тһе second 125cc moto saw Whit- 
ing claim the holeshot, while Brooks, 
O'Mara, Kehoe, Willie Surratt and 
Fred Andrews followed closely. 

Within a few laps, Whiting and 
Brooks had pulled away from the rest 
of the pack while engaged in a duel 
for thelead. However, Whiting started 
to pull away from Brooks slightly. 
Then Brooks crashed very hard in а 
fast section of the track. As a result, 
Brooks suffered a compound frac- 
tured wrist. With Brooks out of action, 
O'Mara and Kehoe moved into third 
and fourth. A few turns later, Kehoe 
put the move on O'Mara. ''I passed 
him in a rough straightaway. I had 
better momentum coming out of a 
turn, while he hit the choppy stuff 
and slowed him down.” 


Halfway through the race, Whit- 
ing held a commanding lead, while 
Kehoe stretched his advantage over 
O'Mara to about five seconds. After 
about a 15th place start, Dubach had 
worked his way up through the pack 
to fourth, ahead of Surratt, Suzuki's 
Russ Wageman and Yamaha’s Eddie 
Hicks. At the finish, Whiting had a 
safe 17-second lead over Kehoe, who 
had about seven seconds on O'Mara. 
Dubach finished fourth ahead of 
Manley, Wageman and Surratt. 

“I felt really good,” said Whiting. 
“We changed the shock between motos 
and the bike worked perfectly. I gota 
good-sized lead and settled down.” 
250cc Pro 

Glover and his close-to-production 
YZ250 Yamaha beat all the works 
bikes and the rest of the pack into the 
first turn at the start of the first 250cc 
moto, but the race was red-flagged 
because the starting gate didn’t fall 
correctly. On the restart, it was once 
again Glover with the holeshot, pur- 
sued by Lechien, Suzuki's Scott Burn- 
worth, Ward, Suzuki's George Hol- 
land, Honda rider Jeff Hicks and 





О’Мага. 

Glover maintained his lead for а 
lap-and-a-half before Lechien mo- 
tored past. Ward, a few seconds behind 
Glover, began to work his way closer 
to the leaders. During the fourth lap, 
Ward passed Glover in a sharp left 
turn, but Glover retaliated a couple 
of turns later. Then Ward once again 
passed Glover and made it stick. 

Near the end of the moto, Ward 
had reeled-in Lechien, then dropped 
a few bikelengths. Ward came back 
again but came up short at the finish 
line. 

“Т felt real good,” said Lechien. “I 
tried to stay real smooth, but I screwed 
up once and almost went down, and 
he (Ward) caught up to me. So, I just 
gassed it a little harder and pulled 
away from him." 

“I got too hot," said Ward. "I'm 
trying to get over a cold and my 
throat got real dry, then I couldn't 
swallow. It was pretty easy to catch 
up, but it's that much harder to pass. 
I'm just not 100% yet. This cold really 
drains me.” 

Mark Barnett, who rode a new 
works Kawasaki for the first time, 
finished fifth: “I felt good and the 
bike worked real good,” said Barnett. 
“But I felt a little stiff... tense." 

Barnett's teammate, Goat Breker 
had terrible luck. “I hit the starting 
gate wide open and endoed when the 
gate didn't drop right. It ruined the 
pipe, radiator and a bunch of stuff. I 
didn't get a chance to ride the re- 
start." 

Glover finished third ahead of 
O'Mara, Barnett, Hannah, who came 
from almost dead last, Johnson and 
Burnworth. 

Burnworth and his brand-new 
works Suzuki captured the second 
moto holeshot ahead of Glover and 
Ward. However, through the first set 
of double jumps, Gloverjumped them 
and Burnworth didn't — Glover took 
the lead, then Lechien slipped passed 
Burnworth. Ward, Holland — also 
on a new works Suzuki — O'Mara, 
Barnett, Breker, Hicks and Canadian 
Ross Pederson (Suz) followed. 

By the second lap, Ward had moved 
into third, then second after passing 
Glover. Ward, once again, reeled in 
Lechien, and the two leaders pulled 
away from the pack. Then Glover 
and Burnworth duked-it-out over 
third while pulling away from Hol- 
land. O'Mara, Barnett and Hicks. 








"Mr. Міке” Fisher survived a crash to win the first 500cc Pro moto, and he 
easily won the second to capture the overall. 





Glover (4B), Lechien (6) and Scott Burnworth battle for the lead at the 
start of the second 250cc moto. Glover finished third, Burnworth fourth. 





Lechien and Ward battled closely 
for the remainder of the race, but 
Lechien stayed tough and held Ward 


at bay. Burnworth tried a last-second 
pass on Glover for third but failed. 
Holland finished fifth ahead of 
O'Mara, Johnson and Jim Holley. 


"Ididn't have enough energy — it 
got hard to hang on," said Ward. 
“This one section I would pull on 
him, and in the back, he would pull 
on me. He must have had a couple of 
good lines. It wasn't until the last lap 
I felt I couldn't get him. I overshot a 
berm, and he pulled maybe three 
seconds on me. Since it was the last 
lap, I didnt' want to push it over my 
head. It's really easy to get off out 
there and it wasn't worth it.” 

"] obviously didn't have the sus- 
pension set up right," said Glover, 
"though, those other guys went really 
fast. Two guys went faster than I did, 
today — I think that's what hap- 
pened. It's my first ride this year on a 
250, and I’m not really on the pace, I 
guess. We changed the shock and 
forks between moto, 'cause I didn't 
like them — we went the wrong 
direction. We made it softer and и 
ended up bottoming five or six times 
a lap, definitely not the thing to do 
—it limits how fast you can go." 

"Going into the final turn, " said 
Burnworth, “I had him (Glover). But 
there wasn't a line over the double 





jumps, and I couldn't get by. But I'm 
happy with the way I rode, 'cause I've 
ridden so crummy lately." 


500cc Pro 

Making his first racing appearance 
aftera leg injury, Mike Fisher returned 
to the 500cc class and ran away with 
an easy sweep. In the first moto, 
Fisher exited the first turn in the lead 
but was quickly passed by Honda 
rider Mike Larson, who was followed 
by Eric McKenna, Greg Zitterkopf, 
Jim Ellis, Larry Dashiel and Jon 
Nelson. But a half-lap later, Fisher 
found his way back into the lead. He 
than started to extend his lead to a 
comfortable margin. About halfway 
into the race, though, Fisher crashed 
but managed to maintain his lead 
over Larson. After Larson brewed a 
tough battle over third between Zit- 
terkopf, Ellis, Joey Schlag, Dashiel, 
Phil Larson and Scott Manning. 

At the finish, Fisher won by about 
15 seconds ahead of Mike Larson. 
With Phil Larson safely in third, the 
battle for fourth ended up in a two- 
rider duel between Manning and Ellis. 
However, the duel ended when Ellis 
got out of shape in a rough, top-gear 
straight. Ellis was ejected off his 
Yamaha — he and his bike sailed off 
the track and into some spectators. 
Luckily, only one spectator was 
shaken up, but Ellis dislocated his 
right shoulder. Phil Larson finished 








Neither Bob Hannah (B25) nor Rick Johnson had a very good day. Hannah 
finished sixth in the first moto and DNF the second. Johnson took sixth.

third ahead of Manning, Dashiel, 
Willy Simons, Ron LaPointe and 
Rick Burgett. 


Burgett led from the start in the 
second moto, while Fisher passed him 
a few turns later. Fisher then jumped 
out to а huge lead. By the third lap, 
Mike Larson had worked into second, 
while Manning and Zitterkopf battled 
for third. Zitterkopf passed Manning 
in the whoops and started to pull 
away, but the rear suspension on Zit- 
terkopf's M-Star broke, dropping him 
out of the race. At this point, Fisher 
had a huge lead over Mike Larson, 
who had a huge advantage over Man- 
ning, who had a huge advantage over 
Simons. For the next five laps, posi- 
tions remained the same. Fisher won 
with 24 seconds to spare over Mike 
Larson. Manning finished third, Si- 
mons fourth. 


80cc Expert 


Kawasaki rider Lowell Thompson 
led from start to finish in the first 
80cc Expert moto, and easily won the 
second to claim the overall. Thomp- 
son's nearest competition was Honda 
rider Kyle Lewis and Scott Brown. 
Lewis finished second in the first 
moto and took fourth in the second, 
while Brown finished fourth n the 
first moto and took second in the 
second. After Thompson, the overall 
went; Brown, Lewis, Mike Pascarella;

CMC/Skoal Bandit Golden State 
Amateur Series: Round 2 





Myers, Maybery and 
Bostard take overall 


wins 
By Troy Scott 
BRENTWOOD, CA, JAN. 12-13 


The second round of Continental Motosport 
Club's Skoal Bandit Golden State Nation- 
als for the amateurs was held at Sand Hill 
Ranch in Brentwood, California. Near zero 


visibility due to heavy fog com- 
pounded the difficulty of the 
event, leading to some fierce 
racing and keen competition. 


Yamaha-mounted Scott Myers, and 
Jeff Mabery with his Kawasaki were 
able to overcome conditions and net 


divisions one and two. 

For the first division of the 250cc 
Intermediates, the first moto saw 
Myers take the holeshot. The field 
rounded out with Pat Sparks (Hon) 
апа Eric Marnoch (Hon) in the second 
and third slots. Myers kept the heat 
on, and by the second lap had.widened

onds. Racing was still going on for 
third, and Kevin Fringer (Yam) was 
able to slip by Marnoch. Kawasaki- 
mounted Frankie Brundage was also 
putting the heat on for third, but 
Fringer was able to hold off both rid- 
ers to the finish. At the end of the 
moto it was Myers with a decisive 
first, Sparks for second and Fringer 
finishing third. 

Тһе second moto opened with an- 
other Myers holeshot, only to have 
him overcook it, go wide, and fall 
back to fifth place. Sparks and Brun- 
dage took advantage and diced back 
and forth for the lead, with Myers in 
hot pursuit. Myers put in a remarkable 
performance, making up time every- 
where on the track, and by the second 
lap had moved into second place, 
bumping Sparks into third. Myers 
was then able to pass Brundage 
ona rough stretch for the lead. When 
the checkered flag fell, it was Myers 
taking the win and the overall. Second 
went to Sparks, and third to Brundage. 

For 250cc Intermediate division two, 
the first moto got underway with Jeff 
Matiasevich snagging an early lead, 
and rapidly putting ground between 
him and second place Doug Gillette. 
Bob Milani moved up through the 
pack and slipped by Gillette for the 
number two slot, followed by Kawa- 
saki-mounted Jeff Mabery. Mabery 
continued to put the heat on to take 
second at the finish, with third going 
to Tony Strangle (Kaw), and Bob 
Milani taking fourth. 

Mabery took the holeshot for the 
second moto, followed closely by Mike 
Elsberry (Yam). Elsberry tried an un- 
successful pass on the doubles, and 
was then passed himself by a charg- 
ing Matiasevich on the downhill 
stretch. Matiasevich then put the move 
on Mabery, and the two swapped the 
lead several times. Mabery made the 
final and decisive pass, holding the 
lead to take the checkered. At the fin- 
ish line it was Mabery, Matiasevich 
in second, Elsberry in third, and 
Honda-mounted John Ensign finish- 
ing fourth. Mabery's victory in the 
second moto netted him the overall 
win. 

In the 125cc Intermediate division, 
racing got underway with Jeff Capt 
(Kaw) taking the holeshot, followed 
closely by Bruce Jackman (Suz) and 
Gilbert Valdez (Suz). Capt then sur- 
rendered the lead to Jackman, with 
Valdez holding tight on third. Some- 
thing happened to Jackman's bike, 
dropping him back, allowing Valdez 
to take the lead. Moving into the 
third slot was Yamaha-mounted 
Tommy Seidel, who then went on to 
capture the lead when Valdez boggled 
on some rough track. Kawasaki- 
mounted Terry Bostard then charged 
through to take first, closely followed 
by John Willard. Valdez wasn’t able

Bostard taking the checkered, with 
Willard in second and Seidel third. 

For the second moto, Bostard 
jumped into an early lead, running 
away from Mabery and Steven Ken- 
dall (Suz). Mabery moved up and put 
pressure on Bostard for the lead, but 
was unable to slip by. Mabery kept 
the pressure on for two full laps, and 
finally slipped through on the out- 
side to take the lead. At the end it was 
Mabery, Bostard and Kendall finish- 
ing third. Bostard's second place fin- 
ish netted him the overall win. 

Тһе first moto of the Vet Masters 
division was capped with a runaway 
win by Gary Jones (Hus), followed 
by Jon Miller (Yam) and Steve Fer- 
roni (Yam) Sunday. For the second 
moto, Phil Gribnaul (Yam) took the 
holeshot followed by Ferroni and 
Bob Dunn (Hon). Ferroni started to 
pressure Gribnau to get by for the 
lead. Jones, recovering from a bad 
start, was now in fourth place and 
made a spectacular move on the inside 
to pass both Dunn and Gribnau. 
With that, Jones went to work on 
Ferroni for the lead. Dunn was run- 
ning hard for third, but lost ground 
and was overtaken by Jon Miller. 
Miller kept on charging, and was 
able to slide by Ferroni for the second 
place spot. Jones was completely out 
of reach, and went on to take first and 
the overall win. Miller took a comfort- 
able second and second overall, with 
Ferroni third and third overall. 

In the sidehacks, Phil Palfreyman 
and Perry Mellilo holeshot moto one, 
with John and Victor Palfreyman in 
second ahead of Pete and Scott Whit- 
ney. The Palfreyman/Mellilo team 
led a battle for second. When Pal- 
freyman and Mellilo got stuck in a 
rut, Whitney and Whitney took the 
lead and the win. Palfreyman and 
Mellilo recovered for second ahead of 
Palfreyman/Palfreyman. 

In moto two, Whitney/Whitney 
led, then Palfreyman and Mellilo 
passed for the lead. They got stuck 
again, and the Whitneys assumed 
control. On the white flag lap, Pal- 
freyman and Mellilo bailed hard and 
DNF, allowing the Whitneys the vic- 
tory over the Palfreyman team. e

American Honda announced its offi- 
cial motocross team lineup for the 
coming year: Tommy Croft, Rich 
Eierstedt, Pierre Karsmakers and Mar- 
ty Smith. 


'The AMA announced the payoff from 
its point fund for the top racers of 1974. 
Kenny Roberts received $7876.83; 
$1687.70 was awarded to Roger De- 
Coster; and $585.54 went to factory 
CZ pilot Zdenek Velky. American 
motocrossers Jimmy Weinert and 
Gary Jones received $1239.89 and 
$1711.23, respectively. 


Moto-progress marches on: Reports 
from therecent Anaheim, California, 
motorcycle trade show mention the 
debut of “the most technically sophis- 
ticated”’ sidecar produced by a '*well- 
known purveyor of fairings," Craig 
Vetter. Also at Anaheim were several 
new Norton-Triumph street bike 
models featuring electric starting. 
Contributor John Ulrich's photo- 
graphs showed the latest advances to 
come from the shop of Don Jones, 
father of 250cc National MX Cham- 
pion Gary Jones. Trick MX stuff 
included air/oil forks with a balance 
tube (to keep both legs equalized), a 
high-revving Cam-Am with a triple 
exhaust port, and a "snail pipe” that 
wraps up over the cylinder head, thus 
reducing instances of toasted legs. 


Maico-mounted Jim West duelled it 
out with “Rocket Кех” Staten (Mai) 
at CMC's Irwindale night motocross. 
West won the first two 500cc Pro 
motos, only to have his front wheel 
collapse in the third, giving the win 
to Staten. Staten encountered bad 
luck in the first two motos, however, 
to score fourth overall. Second overall 
went to Jeff Jennings (CZ). Also at 
Irwindale, Will Harper (CZ) was the 
250cc Pro victor, while Mike Bell 
(Hon) aced the 125cc Pros. 


Тһе Four Aces М.С. staged their 25th 
annual Moose Run Hare and Hound; 
this year it was held near Adelanto 
instead of Fremont Valley. Ron 
Wright (Yam) took the lead early on 
and finished the winner, first 
Heavyweight Expert. Ron Bebo (Yam) 
was second overall; Jim Wotring 
(Yam) was third, first 250; Dean Mod- 
esett (Pen) claimed first 175cc class 
honors. 


Mike Minnig (Yam) had just cele- 
brated his 14th birthday when he 
won the 125cc Expert flat track main 
eventat Corona Raceway. He defeated 
Mike Tidwell (Yam) and Eddie Law- 
son (Yam). Winner of the 250cc Ama- 
teurs was Dorothy Rowe (Yam), ahead 
of Dave Johnson (Yam) and Stan 
Kemp (Hon). 


Kevin Hasten took his CZ 400 to vic- 
tory in the Desert Racing Associa- 
tion's (DRA) California City hare 
scrambles, beating out Jim Fishback 
(CZ), Benny Padilla (Yam) and Wayne 
Cook (Hon). John Dykstra (Yam) 
was first Beginner, followed by Bob 
Bell on a Hindall-framed Triumph 
650. Can you say ground pounder?

Brad Lackey's 

championship 

¿taining 
program 


By Dean Miller and Len Weed 


This and future installments are excerpted from Championship Training, 
featuring Brad Lackey, by Brad's personal trainer, Dean Miller, and Len Weed. 
All first person comments are by Dean Miller. 

Be aware that many areas of sports medicine, training, and nutrition do not 
offer black-and-white answers. Training is as much an art form as it is a science. 
In many ways, preparing an athlete is similar to tuning a racing engine. It's part 
study, part experiment, part dreaming up new approaches, part trying different 
combinations. It's putting past results and present ideas together, searching for 


something that works better. 


Research often suggests answers but conclusive evidence may be lacking. And 
continuing research sometimes questions or invalidates principles and ap- 
proaches previously accepted. Differing views, where applicable, will be men- 
tioned along with indications of new research that may change prevailing views.

The motion system 

Тһе body utilizes different kinds of 
tissue to function as a motion ma- 
chine: 

Bones form the sketetal system of 
the body. Bone size is genetic but, to 
some extent, bones can be strength- 
ened or at least made more resistant 
to fracture with proper nutrition and 
exercise. 

Muscles, by contracting and relax- 
ing, activate motion. Three kinds of 
muscle are found in the body: skele- 
tal, cardiac, and smooth organ. The 
predominant type is skeletal muscle 
which makes the bones move around 
their joints. 

Tendons are connective tissues that 
join muscle to bone. Tendons don't 
move bónes, they allow contracting 
muscle groups to pull on them. 

Ligaments are connective tissues 
that hold two bones together in a 
joint. A large capsular ligament usu- 
ally surrounds a joint. 

Cartilage, a tough, spongy, shock- 
absorbing tissue, is present in many 
joints to keep the bone ends from 
grinding on each other. 

Fasciae are protective tissues that 
envelope other body tissues. Fasciae 
(singular: fascia) help absorb pres- 
sure on joints and muscles. 

Skin is the outer envelope, the sur- 
face tissue that keeps the package 
together and protects it from outside 
elements. Skin thickness ranges from 
one-thirty-second to one-eighth of an 
inch. There are two main layers, the 
surface epidermis and the dermis. 
The average body's skin weighs from 
six to 10 pounds and covers an area of 
about 20 square feet. The skin also 
helps regulate body temperature, 
offers sensory perception, and allows 
perspiration and body oil (sebum) to 
be released. 


Bones 
Тһе human body contains 206 





bones, distributed as follows: 

Skull — 29. 

Ribs and breast bone — 25. 

Vertebrae — 26. 

Shoulders, arms, and hands — 64. 

Pelvis, legs, and feet — 62. 

Some bones, such as those of the 
skull, ribs, pelvis help protect organs 
while others, such as those in the 
arms and legs, provide leverage for 
motion. Bones also store minerals, 
mostly calcium and phosphorus. Тһе 
bone marrow within some bones also 
produces both red and white blood 
cells. 


Muscle 


О Muscle consists of about 22 per- 
cent protein, 70 percent water, 
and eight percent lipids (fats) and 
other tissues. 

О Muscle accounts for 40 to 50 per- 
cent of body weight in the average 
adult male. The figure is about 25 
percent for females. 

О There are three types of muscle. 
Skeletal muscle contractions cre- 
ate lever motion by the bones at 
thejoints. Cardia muscle pumps 
blood. Smooth organ muscle 
controls movement in the inges- 
tion and processing systems such 
as digestion, circulation, and 
respiration. 

D The body has over 600 muscles. 
More than 400 of them are skele- 
tal. 

D Theaverage body contains an es- 
timated six billion muscle fibers. 

О Each muscle fiber has an ability 
to support up to 1000 times its 
own weight. 

D The thickness of muscle fiber 
ranges from approximately one- 
tenth to one-hundredth of a milli- 
meter. 

О The longest muscle in the body is 
about 30 centimeters (about 12 
inches). 

O The number of muscle fibers in 





each body is believed to be genet- 
ically fixed. The body cannot gen- 
erate new muscle fiber, it can only 
increase the strength and endur- 
ance of the given fiber. (Recent re- 
search indicates that new fibers 
may be generated by the division 
of existing fibers.) 

Muscle is composed of hair-like fib- 
ers, orderly strips of protein. 

Each fiber consists of numerous 
filaments. 

Each filament contains two kinds 
of myofibrils — actin and myosin — 
arranged in an alternating parallel 
pattern with their ends overlapping. 
Dark bands or stripes (known as stri- 
ations) are formed where the myofi- 
brils overlap. 

During contraction, the myofibrils 
slide over each other in a telescopic 
manner, a chemical ratchet action 
that shortens and thickens the muscle. 


Fast and slow twitch fiber 


Two major types of fiber are found 
in skeletal muscle — fast and slow 
twitch. 

Fast twitch fiber is burst muscle. It 
contracts as much as 10 times quicker 
than slow twitch muscle. However, 
because it utilizes fuel supplies within 
the muscle itself, fast twitch fiber 
fatigues quicker. 

. Slow twitch fiber is endurance mus- 








cle. It's slower to contract but, because 
of its capacity to use oxygen, is more 
fatigue-resistant. 

Athletes with a high percentage of 
fast twitch fiber are best suited for 
speed and strength activities. Sprint- 
ing. Lifting weights. Hitting a base- 
ball. Any short duration, high inten- 
sity activity. А sprinter may have 
more than 75 percent fast twitch 
muscle fiber. 

Athletes with a high percentage of 
slow twitch fiber tend to take up or at 
least have a better chance for success 
with endurance sports. A distance 
runner may have as much as 80 per- 
cent slow twitch fiber. 

Slow twitch fiber is often referred 
to as red fiber (because it contains 
more muscle sarcoplasm which is 
reddish in color) while fast fiber is 
referred to as white. However, this 
simple white/red classification is not 
universally accepted. 

Some research indicates there may 
be at least a third type of fiber — fast 
twitch but more fatigue-resistant. 
Other studies indicate several varia- 
tions of fatigue-resistant fast twitch 
fiber. At least one study suggests 
eight or more classifications of mus- 
cle fiber. 


Muscular contractions 


Contraction signals from the cen- 
tral nervous system to the muscle 


travel over nerve fiber at speeds up to 
about 200 miles per hour. The mes- 
sages slow to about 15 feet per second 
(about 10 miles per hour) within a 
muscle group. 

Each muscle fiber either contracts 
fully or doesn't contract. The greater 
the number of contracting fibers, the 
greater the speed and strength of the 
resulting movement. 

As fiber contracts, a muscle gets 
shorter and thicker. The classic ex- 
ample is the bicep. Generally, a con- 
tracting muscle can shorten up to 
one-third of its resting length. 

Тһе speed of a complete contrac- 
tion and relaxation cycle may be as 
quick as a hundreth of a second (with 
some eye muscle) or as slow as a 10th 
of a second. 

Muscle fibers contract in an orderly 
sequence. Theamount of force needed, 
not thespeed of contraction, controls 
fiber recruitment: 

(1) Slow twitch fibers fire first. 

(2) Fast twitch fibers are recruited 
(the most fatgue-resistant first) if more 
force is needed. 


Contraction sequence 

Filaments within each muscle fiber 

slide over each other during contrac- 
tion causing the muscle to thicken 
and shorten. Exactly how this happens 
has not been verified, but the follow- 
ing explanation is generally accepted. 
(The book, Тһе Sweet Spot in Time 
by John Jerome, details the process.) 

О Muscle fibers consist of two pro- 
tein filaments — actin and myo- 
sin — which overlap slightly. 
АТР is stored in the crossbridge 
area between the two types of 
filaments. 

О The actin filaments have bind- 
ing sites (something like ridges 
on a bumper jack) placed at 
intervals along their length. 

D The myosin filaments have pro- 
trusions (heads) that reach toward 
the actin binding sites. 

О Muscle activity is initiated when 
motor nerve contraction signals 
are received by the fibers. 

О Calcium stored around the mus- 
cle filaments is released. This 
electrochemically charges the fil- 
ament crossbridges. 

О The linking of the crossbridges 
activates the creation of a tem- 
porary protein — actomyosin — 
which triggers phosphate release 
from ATP present in the muscle. 

О The energy from the phosphate 
release allows the myosin heads 
to swivel toward and bind with 
actin binding sites inaratcheting 
process (like a bumper jack). This 
pulling or sliding of filaments 
contracts the muscle, moving the 
limb. 

ПА relaxation signal from the 
nervous system withdraws the 
calcium and the contraction ends. 

О ATP, which releases phosphate 
(phosphoricacid) and energy as it 
breaks down, is replenished by 
creatine phosphate also stored in 
the muscle. This replenishment 
allows ATP to maintain the elec- 
trochemical charging of the fil- 
ament crossbridges. (Muscles will 
lock if ATP resynthesizing is 
insufficient. This is what causes 
rigor mortis, muscle rigidity in a 
corpse.) 


Muscle pairs 
Muscles can pull, but they can't 
push. So, to produce lever-like bone 
movement at a joint, skeletal muscle 
groups work as a team. Each assumes 
one of two roles, the opposite of its 
partner during any movement. 
О Agonist — contracts to move а 
bone. 
О Antagonist — relaxes to allow the 
bone to move. 
The coordinated movement of mus- 
cle pairs eliminates what would other- 








wise be jerky and imprecise move- 
ments. 

Muscle pairs then swap roles to 
reverse the action. For example, the 
bicep (agonist) contracts as the tricep 
(antagonist) lengthens to allow an 
arm curl. Then the tricep contracts to 
straighten the arm as the bicep relaxes 
and lengthens. 

Curling a weight requires flexion 
and extension activity by the involved 
muscles. These, however, are not the 
only roles played by various muscles: 

D Flexion. A flexor muscle moves 
two connecting bones toward 
each other. 

О Extension. An extensor muscle 
straightens thealignment of two 
connecting bones. 

О Abduction. An abductor muscle 
moves a limb away from the 
center of the body. 

D Adduction. An adductor muscle 
moves a limb toward the center of 
the body. 

О Rotation. A rotator muscle turns 
a bone ina circular motion at its 
joint. 

Some muscles serve more than one 
function. For example, the thigh 
muscles straighten the leg at the knee 
(knee extension) and bend the upper 
leg (hip flexion) toward the body. 


Muscular growth chemistry 

(1) Stress. Contracting muscle 
against resistance initiates chemical 
response that stimulates future 
growth. It is believed the increased 
production of creatine phosphate 
triggers the production of additional 
contraction protein within the fiber. 

(2) Rest. Recovery time after stress 
allows for the repair of minor tissue 
damage and the growth of thicker 
fiber (hypertrophy). 

(3) Nutrition, a balanced diet pro- 
vides the nutrients necessary to both 
fuel the stress exercise and nourish 
muscle growth. 

Thicker muscle fiber is stronger 
muscle fiber, just as an inch-thick 
rope is stronger than a half-inch rope. 

'The capillary network within the 
muscle also grows, increasing the 
local blood supply. Muscular growth 
also stimulates an increase in myo- 
globin (used for oxygen pickup) as 
well as the storage of muscle glycogen. 


Use it or lose it 

Unfortunately, muscles are not like 
money. You can work hard, deposit 
your dollars in a bank, collect inter- 
est, and use your cash at any time in 
the future. With muscles, however, 
the depositor loses his principal. 
Rather rapidly. 

Lack of stress leads to muscular 
atrophy, the loss of blood volume 
and contracting proteins. This mus- 
cle shrinkage can begin after four 
days of inactivity. In a year’s time, 
totally inactive muscle can lose as 
much as 75% of its volume. 

It is estimated that a two-month 
layoff can harm the efforts of years of 
training. That's why serious athletes 
are urged to use some form of off- 
season training to maintain muscle 
tone or minimize atrophy. 

Muscle may shrink, but it does not 
turn to fat. Muscle is muscle. However, 
more fat may be stored above shrink- 
ing muscle, especially if an athlete 
doesn't reduce his calories as he re- 
duces his exercise. е

Honda/Scott USA Florida Winter AMA 


MX Series: Round 2 


Barr, Stafford, Martin 
shine in Florida 


By Mike & Anne Adair 
WEST PALM BEACH, FL, JAN. 6 


Kawasaki Team Green's Rodney Barr and 
Steve Martin, along with R and D Suzuki- 
supported Scooter Stafford, took Pro class 
wins in the second round of the series at 


Wheelsport MX Park. 


Riders not accustomed to the 
torture of Florida sand tracks 
enjoyed the relatively fast and 
smooth black dirt of the south Flor- 
ida circuit. Barr, who took over the 
125cc Pro class point lead from Suzuki 
rider Jeff Frisz, said, "Last week (at 
the Gatorback round in Gainesville) 
I had some bad luck, and I guess it 
was Jeff's turn.” 

Scooter Stafford had to “ride the 
wheels”’ off his Suzuki to top Kawa- 
saki's Billy Liles and Bettencourt 
Honda's Jo Jo Keller for the 250cc 
class win. 


Тһе '84 Japanese 250cc National 
Champion, Steve Martin, in his home 
state on a "holiday," clinched the 
500cc class overall win with a strong 
final moto over Keith Oelerich and 
Keller. 
125cc 

Barr settled the first moto dispute 
in turn one by out-accelerating 
Michael Jones, John Greaves, Jeff 
Frisz and Mark Crozier, then pulled 


12 ahead with a comfortable lead. Frisz 








needed only three laps to find his way 
into second behind Barr, while fel- 
low Suzuki riders Clay Hoenshell 
and Terry Tinney charged from a 
back-of-the-pack start. 

Frisz slowly closed the gap until 
lap 13, when his bike locked up and 
pitched him over the bars. “Something 
jammed the chain," said Frisz. “Тһе 
chain stopped the transmission and 
over I went. I thought that I could 
take Barr too.” Barr won, while Croz- 
ier held second over Jones, Tinney 
and Hoenshell. 

Pennsylvania's Jones ruled the start 
of moto two with Mike Crane, Eric 
Yarnell, Hoenshell and Carroll Rich- 
ardson in tight pursuit. Crozier and 
Frisz were mid-pack, while Barr was 
at the bottom of a pile-up. ''I didn't 
think that I would ever get out of that 
pile," said Barr. 

Crane displaced leader Jones on 
lap four, only to find himself bumped 
to second on lap eight by Richard- 
son. Yarnell, Jones and Hoenshell 
disputed the third place spot. Frisz 
and Barr were on the gas, and Frisz 
was in third two laps later with Barr 
eighth.

Scooter Stafford (58) won the 250cc Pro class with another 1-1 score. 





Kenny Keylon (37) was second in moto one, but crashed out in round two. 





Yarnell crashed out, Crozier's 
Honda seized, Richardson dropped 
out, and Frisz put his WKR/Gear, 
Simpson-sponsored Suzuki ahead for 
the moto win. Barr bumped Steve 
Burdette out of second to take the 
overall win for the day. 

"I joined a Nautilus fitness center 
in Daytona and have been running 
three times a week," said Barr. “That 
conditioning really helped me come 
back." 


250cc 

Stafford maintained his tradition 
of leading every 250cc moto thus far 
in the series and left Kenny Keylon, 
Liles, Todd Harrell, Dan Hafner and 
Troy Smith following his point. As 
the moto progressed, two intense bat- 
tles raged: one between Stafford and 
Keylon for the lead; and another 
between Liles and Harrell for third. 

Liles dispensed with Harrell and 
made it a three-way scrap for the lead. 
Ina thrilling move, Keylon and Liles 


in tandem passed Stafford, and the’ 


moto ended in the same order. 

“Billy was right there behind me," 
said Yamaha/Bell/Gear-sponsored 
Keylon. “It really was a good battle 
for a while." Yamaha support team 
manager Clark Jones, was one of the 
first to congratulate Keylon. 

Liles said, “I had different lines 
and should have tried to take Stafford 
and Keylon sooner. I had the speed, 
but time ran out." 

Stafford had Honda-mounted Tom 
Carson for company in the first turn 
at the start of moto two and the pair 
paced Keylon, Tim Ealy, Steve John- 
son and Keller as Liles struggled at 
mid-pack. Keylon got alongside Car- 
son, crashed, then remounted. Car- 
son hung onto leader Stafford's fender 
until Keller pried him off on lap 10. 

Keylon crashed on the tunnel jump 
and spent four minutes unconscious 
before being revived by the emer- 
gency medical technicians. “І don't 
remember much,” saida groggy Key- 
lon later. 

Keller, on the Savage Racing-pre- 
pared Honda, closed on Stafford but 
Stafford won. “I played the waiting 
game,” said Keller, “But he didn't let 
up." 

Liles, who was close enough by the 
end of the moto for a stab at the win, 
finished third for second overall. “т 
here to get in shape," Liles explained. 
“Му Kawasaki works bikes are being 
shipped from Japan to California. 
When they arrive there ГИ have to 
leave the series and head west."

Stafford beamed in the pits after- 
ward. “I did everything to hold them 
off me. When my dad put the dollar 
sign on the pit board I found a little 
more energy.” 
500cc 

'Tom Rice, a perennial series con- 
tender, missed the opening round 
and said, “1 trashed the transmission 
on my van on the way down from 
New York. I had to borrow a truck 
while mine is being repaired." Rice 
jammed into the first turn with Steve 
Martin, Keith Oelerich, Fred Vertucci, 
Tim Dohm, Keller, Mark Murphy 
and Alan Crum in the hunt. Martin, 
on an Alan Saari-prepared Kawasaki, 
took a turn at the lead but Oelerich 
and his Honda blitzed by on lap two. 

Keller moved in on Murphy and 
the pair exchanged third several times. 
“I kept falling and having to catch 
up," explained Murphy. Murphy's 
quest ended with a hole in his expan- 
sion chamber, forcing him to settle 
for third behind winner Oelerich and 
Keller. Martin took fourth. 

Oelerich said, “І worked all year, 
bought my own bike, and hope to 
win this series." 

In moto two, Texan Dennis Haw- 
thorne led Martin, Oelerich, Vertucci 
and Keller, with Murphy digging out 
from a so-so start. Martin rolled ahead 
on lap three as Murphy caught up to 
Oelerich and Hawthorne, with Keller 
off the pace with apparent problems. 

Murphy charged up on lap 15 and 
took over second from Hawthorne, 
but had to watch Martin dance to the 
win. “Не got away from me too soon 
and I couldn't reel him in," said 
Yamaha/Malcolm Smith-sponsored 
Murphy. 

Oelerich, who took fourth behind 
Hawthorne, said, “I felt strong in the 
first moto but a fall took all my

when Za Supereross rocks 


Anaheim Stadium February 2 


The MILLER HIGH LIFE SUPERCROSS 
invades Anaheim Stadium for round two of 
the 1985 AMA-sanctioned Insport Supercross 
Series on Saturday night, February 2. 


Rider rally 


Bob “Hurricane” Hannah is prob- 
ably the most anxious of any rider to 
take the supercross championship 
this year. He is hungry for another 
title; and wants to take the honors 
during the last year of his contract 
with Team Honda. Fully-recovered 
from wrist and foot injuries sustained 
last season, the “Hurricane” is ready 
to blast Anaheim in what could be 
his last appearance there before ru- 
mored retirement next year. 

At age 28, Hannah has a lot to 
prove. Hailed as the winningest mo- 
tocrosser of all time, Hannah will 
apply his best racing techniques to 
the Anaheim track on February 2. 
“То win, a rider has, to develop an 
arsenal of skills that will put him 


‘ahead of his competition," explained ' 


Hannah. “One of the most elusive of 
these skills is power to the ground. 
It’s not enough to just attack the 
course all-out 100 percent. Sometimes 
backing off just a little here and there 
can make you faster.” 

For the past three years, the rider 
who has taken the checkered flag at 
Anaheim Stadium has ultimately 
taken the supercross championship 
title. Donnie Hansen won the opener 
in 1982 and became the '82 Supercross 
Champion; David Bailey did the same 
in 1983; and Johnny O'Mara followed 
suit in 1984. All three were also 
aboard Team Honda — can the “Ниг- 
тісапе” and Honda do it again in '85? 

Many feel that Team Kawasaki 
veteran, Jeff Ward, is the one to beat. 
After many years without even one 
supercross win, Ward took three 
checkered flags in the series last year 
— Seattle; Pasadena and Los Angeles; 
and also is the reigning 125cc National 
Champion. New teammate, Mark 
Barnett, has switched from Suzuki to 
Team Kawasaki; and is a good one to 
watch this year along with Goat 
Breker. 

Team Yamaha’s Rick Johnson, the 
current 250cc National MX Cham- 
pion, and Broc Glover, who won the 
1984 Miller Masters Challenge wear- 
ing pink leathers, are both prime 
candidates to win the Anaheim Super- 
cross — yet neither has ever won a 
race at Anaheim before. 

Team Honda creates more competi- 
tion. David Bailey, the defending 
500cc National Champ; and Johnny 
O'Mara, the 1984 Supercross Cham- 
pion, both boast blistering wins at 
the past two Anaheim events. Add 
Ron “Тһе Machine" Lechien, whose 
riding style is often compared to that 
of Bob Hannah's, and the “Ншті- 
сапе” has a pretty tough force to beat 
even among his own teammates! 

Scott Burnworth and George Hol- 
land will ride Anaheim under the 
banner of Team Suzuki; and many 
more of your supercross favorites 
such as Team Tamm’s Alan King, 
and privateers like Warren Reid, Jim 
Holley, and Jeff Hicks. Reid broke 





his leg at Anaheim last year, but will 
be back to conquer the course on 
February 2. 


New race format 


Not only will Anaheim fans thrill 
to the competition in the 250cc Pro 
class at the MILLER HIGH LIFE 
SUPERCROSS, but also to the addi- 
tion of the 125cc Support class which 
is open to Pro-Am and Junior Pros 
this year under the new AMA race 
format. With 60 riders in the 250cc 
class and 40 riders in the 125cc class, 
there are actually 100 chances for the 
checkered flag at Anaheim! 

Іп the 125cc Support class, 40 riders 
will compete in two six-lap qualifying 
heat races of 20 riders each; and one 
10-lap main event final of 20 riders. 


Тһе 125cc-class riders will have black 


number plates with white letters, and 
the 250cc-class riders will have white 
number plates with black letters on 
their motocross bikes. 


Same great track 

The MILLER HIGH LIFE SU- 
PERCROSS at Anaheim Stadium 
boasts the same awesome track as last 
year — the one the riders said was the 
beston thecircuit! Six-hundred truck- 
loads of dirt will be hauled into 
Anaheim Stadium, transforming the 
Ram's playing field into a massive 
battlefield of spectacular jumps, pits, 
berms, whoop-de-doos, and hurdles; 
including the infamous Miller Moun- 
tain and the Coca-Cola Catapult. 

One new obstacle has been added 
to the course this year — the 18- 
Wheeler Screamer! Watch the best 
factory Pros and privateer riders 
wrestle with three 25-foot semi- 
trailers buried in the dirt! Partially 
concealed from sight, these eight- 
foot-wide trailers are nestled side-by- 
side to create a menacing jump. Test- 
ing the abilities of even the most 
courageous of riders, daredevils will 
jump like Evel Knievel over this 
spectacular track obstacle! 


Easy stadium access 

Stadium Motorsports Corp., pro- 
ducers of the MILLER HIGH LIFE 
SUPERCROSS, is concerned about 
traffic problems for fans going to 
Anaheim Stadium. They are working 
with the City of Anaheim and the 
California Highway Patrol to have 
extra officers directing traffic in the 
stadium vicinity on February 2 to 
help spectators get in and out of the 
area quickly. They are even looking 
into hiring a Sikorsky Sky Crane 
Helicopter to patrol the freeways and 
literally pick-up and remove any vehi- 
cles that might be jamming or block- 
ing the freeway due to accidents or 
mechanical problems! 

Take a moment to study the dia- 
gram of Anaheim Stadium and sur- 
rounding area. While you are prob- 
ably used to taking a certain route to 
the stadium, you will notice that 
there are several freeways with various

Fiction 
Uphill from the track 


By Dave Klakovich 


Sunday morning is when the local moun- 
tain roads in southern California are invaded 
by canyon racers. Riders who, not having 
found a place on the track, do their brand of 


racing in the canyons above 


the city. Drawn by the hot, dry 
air above three thousand feet, 
we stream up from the low- 
lands. The pavement in the moun- 
tains is clean and unoiled, and the 
road itself is only partially revealed as 
it climbs ahead. 

On the coastal side of the moun- 
tains the mornings are damp and 
cool, with low clouds and fog. At 60 
miles per hour on the freeway, I was 


bundled against the cold, looking . 


ahead to the mountains. Twenty cold 
miles brought me to Pasadena, at the 
foot of the San Gabriel range. My 
Suzuki 750 rumbled through the still 
sleeping streets with its four-into-one 
exhaust. 

I made a right turn on Angeles 
Crest Highway, and in two miles was 
leaving the last few houses behind 
Here the road began to climb in earn- 
est. No more houses or gas stations, 
just unobstructed dry pavement, 
formed magically into long, sweep- 
ing curves, climbing into the moun- 
tain morning. After a few miles the 
overcast was left behind, and I emerged 





into a warm, sun-washed world. On 
the track, a green flag begins the 
competition. In the mountains, the 
blinding clarity of blue sky and 20- 
mile visibility signal the start of the 
race. 

As the tires heated up, I fell into a 
familiar rhythm. The simple thrill of 
being alive coursed through me. My 
senses were filled with the engine's 
song and the rush of the broken yel- 
low line as it raced to meet me. I 
began to use up ground clearance, 
and various parts of the Suzuki's 
underside began to touch down, leav- 
ing a metallic trail in the lane. The 
folding rubber footpeg and sidestand 
on the left were further modified that 
morning, as well as the footpeg and 
centerstand on the right. 

Unlike his counterpart on the track, 
the canyon racer must contend with 
the added hazard of unexpected ob- 
stacles in the road. I dived into a 
blind corner, right on line, only to 
find a football-size rock directly in 
my path. I levered the Suzuki further 
to the inside to miss the rock, and in 
doing so, aimed the bike into a patch 
of sand near the shoulder, causing 





the rear wheel to slide. I corrected by 
steering into the slide. When the bike 
finally stopped moving sideways, I 
was around the rock and back on my 
original line. I took a deep breath, 
made a mental note about rocks and 
opened the throttle. Ahead of me the 
road opened in silent invitation. 

The first few miles of that particu- 
lar road were designed, I feel certain, 
for the amateur road racer. There is 
more than just a civil engineer's solu- 
tion to the problem of crossing that 
section of mountain terrain. There is 
a beauty about that road, a magic 
beyond numbers, a conspiracy (among 
whom?) to entice the rider beyond 
reasonable speeds. Is it safe to charge 
through those corners on a clear 
Sunday morning beyond reasonable 
speeds? Not really. Does it produce 
the experience most riders, including 
myself, ride for? With a certainty. 

I let the tach needle drift back to 
6000 and picked my way through a 
difficult section. I had ridden this 
road more than 40 times, and I felt I 
knew it. The road seems to have 
moods a rider can sense. Too many 
variables exist in mountain racing to 
allow the kind of certainty that must 
be present in professional racing. In 
place of certainty, the rider learns to 
trust his sense of the road. On the 
track, through sheer repetition, the 
racer becomes intimately familiar with 
each corner. He knows when to start 





braking, when to accelerate, which 
line works best. By contrast, a canyon 
racer rarely goes through a given 
corner more than once or twice in one 
day, and often the corners are blind. 
This gives rise to a different kind of 
racing, less knowing, more trusting. 
Definitely more dangerous. 

With the difficult section behind, 
the road leveled out and cut straight 
acrossa gorge. If the mood of theroad 
could be put into words that day, they 
would have been: “Welcome. Have 
fun." I felt I should oblige it. 

Traveling 10 miles per hour in 
excess of the national speed limit, I- 
passed a T-intersection which led up 
to a different pass, and down the 
backside of the mountains into the 
high desert. That morning, though, 
my path led straight ahead, into the 
higher elevations of the San Gabriel- 
mountains, where the road runs for a 
time above 6000 feet. 

Ahead of me, I saw another bike 
disappear around a blind corner. My 
left foot moved from the footpeg and 
clicked the shift lever down twice, in 
one motion. Theengine immediately 
raced to 8000 rpm and I turned my 
attention from the mountain vegeta- 
tion back to the road, concentrating 
опа point 30 yards ahead of the front 
tire. The corner came up and I dove 
into it with throttle half-open, and 
front brake slightly on, not knowing 
which would be appropriate when 
the corner opened. More throttle was 
appropriate. I caught third gear at 
redline, the Suzuki came up straight, 
and I was away clean.— 

We were in a fast downhill section 
and I was closing on the other bike. 
Soon I caught the acrid odor of two- 
stroke racing oil and could see the 
bike was an RD400. One hundred 
yards ahead of me, the rider glanced 
over his shoulder, and I knew he had 
seen me. А fresh cloud of light blue 
smoke shot from his exhaust, mark- 
ing a downshift. Still I closed. The 
greater horsepower of the Suzuki and 
the fast, open corners allowed me to 
gain on the smaller Yamaha. I felt 
like a World War I fighter pilot, 
inexorably closing on the small, buz- 
zing enemy. When he was 50 yards 
distant, I could see he had reached the 
limit of his skill. Pulling up directly 
behind him, I centered him in my 
cross-hairs, preparing for the kill. 
The fatal button "was pressed, my 
turn indicator came on, and with the 
sound of four cylinders howling 
through a megaphone, I pulled ahead. 

My heart rate seemed to be equal to 
my engine rpm. To my right, just off 
the shoulder of the road, a cliff fell 
vertically 1200 feet to a rocky stream. 
I took the edge off my speed and 
savored the victory. 

In mountain racing there is very 
little bike-against-bike competition. 
The logistics of the road make it fool- 
ishly dangerous, so the one-on-one 
contest that really defines a race is 
actually missing. But there is an 
experience in the mountains that is 
not available on the track. It’s the 
experience of being alone in'a world 
of silence, and filling the silence with 
the sound of your passage. It's the 
experience of piloting а flash of color 
at high speed through a world made 
up of blue sky and green earth. 

'The Yamaha was no longer visible 
behind me. The road scaled a steep 
face, passed through a long cleft, and 
emerged on the back side of the 
mountains, 5000 feet above the high 
desert. I pulled into a turnout to look 
at the view. On the front side of the 
range, at lower elevations, the air is 
hazy and the predominant vegetation 
is scrub oak. On the back side, the air 
has a pristine quality, and the addi- 
tional precipitation at higher alti- 
tudes allows for the growth of pine 
and spruce, climbing straight in the 
clean air. Here also, shadows fall 








sharply to ground through the thin 
air, and the silence reaches from 
horizon to horizon. 

As I looked at the view, the Yamaha 
came up behind me, passed the turn- 
out, and continued on. The drone of 
his exhaust, rising and falling, sound- 
ed like an angry insect. The sound 
faded until it was part of the silence. 
Having no thought to catch the 
Yamaha, I left the turnout and went 
on, falling again into an easy rhythm. 
Riding in that way, very quickly, but 
in control, brought about a singular 
clarity of mind. My attention was so 
focused on the road, that nothing, 
save it, and my experience of being 
there, existed. No space remained for 
superfluous thoughts. It was a cleans- 
ing process. Only the road and the 
bike seemed real. The miles rolled 
away from the rear tire, and my 
thoughts were quiet. 

I recalled a small diner up ahead, 
noticed my hunger, and suddenly the 
bikeand road were of secondary impor- 
tance. The diner was recessed into a 
small space bordering the left side of 
the road. This was to be my last stop 
before taking the turn-off back to the 
city. Parked in a row in front of the 
cafe were about 15 other bikes, includ- 
ing the Yamaha. I motored to the far 
end of the row and parked. When the 
engine stopped, the silence returned. 

Other bikers stood outside, talking 
in pairs. Inside, I ordered breakfast 
and saw the Yamaha rider across the 
diner, talking to a waitress. I thought 
of going over to say, “Hello,” but 
really had nothing more than that to 
say, and decided against it. The wai- 
tress brought bacon and eggs. 

Finishing the meal, I stood up to 
go. The Yamaha rider nodded and 
smiled at me. I smiled back, and in 
that instant I realized that Sunday 
morning in the mountains was the 
same for both of us. 

Outside, I stopped to take a closer 
look at some of the bikes. One thing a 
canyon racer notices about a bike is 
how much footpeg, sidestand, cen- 
terstand, etc., has been worn away 
during enthusiastic cornering. The 
more metal worn away, the better the 
rider is presumed to be. Next, the tire 
tread is checked. Squatting down 
behind the RD400 showed the bike 
had been leaned over far enough to 
feather the edge of the tire tread. 

Canyon racing is at least as much a 
test of nerve as of skill, therefore, 
speed doesn't necessarily correspond 
to skill. There are no clear-cut win- 
ners, hence feathered tires and 
ground-off footpegs take the place of 
objective lap times, and form the 
criteria for winning. 

Standing up from behind the 
Yamaha, I sniffed the clear morning 


air with approval. It was time to go. ` 


In another hour I would be back in 
thecity. By that time these same roads 
would start to fill with Winnebagos 
and Honda GL1000s. Still, some of 
the best riding lay ahead, in the next 
few miles. 

Тһе reliable Suzuki started with a 
touch. I motored away slowly in first, 
giving the cooled engine a moment 
to fully wake up. While thinking 
about how potentially dangerous this 
mountain racing is, the tach needle 
traced its familiar arc toward the red. 

Тһе warm air rushing under my 
helmet to be inhaled was the same air 
diving through the engine intake. 
Taking a deep breath, the danger no 
longer seemed real. Though there 
would be no checkered flag, the race 
was on. I automatically caught second 
gear as the tach needle entered the 
red. The hard shift and full throttle 
lightened the front end for an instant. 
The danger was gone completely. My 
peripheral vision was a blur of ever- 
green and granite. Ahead of me the 
road was perfectly motionless and 
still climbing. е

Honda's RS500D 
dirt track engines 


By John Ulrich 


The idea, says Team Honda dirt track man- 
ager Gene Romero when talking about the 
40 for-sale Honda RS500D engines, is that a 


guy can buy one engine and one frame and 


run both TT and short track 
races with one motorcycle. ТТ 
events allow 600cc singles; short 
tracks have a 500cc limit. So the 


RS500D engine comes with a 600cc 
conversion kit included in its $2300

То date, 32 of the 40 engines have

Radial Four Valve Combustion

Along with the engine, Honda 
delivers a list of sources for parts like 
the frame, wheels, forks, shock, etc.

Compared to the XL600 engine on 
which it is based, the RS500D engine 
has a different cylinder head with

Impression: АТК 560 





Chris Crandall's 
winning thumper 


By Larry Langley 


When an АТК four-stroke ridden by Chris 
Crandall, won the 1984 Barstow-to-Vegas 
Hare and Hound, many people could not 
believe that a four-stroke was capable of win- 


ning a desert race. Sure, maybe 


four-strokes could win a long 
distance race like the Baja 1000, 
but not a Hare and Hound 


against the best desert racers in the 
country. 

But there it was, with a full two- 
minute lead over Scot Harden's water- 
cooled, single-shock 500XC Husky. 

Two weeks later, we met Crandall 
at Indian Dunes to ride the ATK. Just 
what is an ATK? It's the creation of 
Horst Leitner, the creator of the A- 
Trak Torque Eliminator, a system 
of drive-chain rollers that Leitner 
says eliminates torque effects on the 
suspension. Leitner designed the ATK 
frame and suspension and kept it 
simple. While Leitner went to a sin- 
gle shock setup, he designed it to be 
mounted in an unconventional man- 
ner, on the left side of the swingarm. 
Obviously the swingarm has to be 
extremely beefy and rigid to with- 
stand the stress but the idea has been 
proven — BMW mounts their shock 
in a similiar manner (although on 
the opposite side). 

Тһе double-downtube, chrome- 
moly frame is built by C&J to Leitner's 
specifications and incorporates an 
oil tank for the dry-sump Rotax 
engine. The frame and Cal-Fab alum- 
inum swingarm have an A-Trak 
device built in. 

Тһе engine is а 562cc, four-valve 


single-cylinder Rotax producing 44 4) 





$ 


claimed 47 bhp — it is basically the 
same engine as in the KTM and Can- 
Am four-strokes. 

So what's it like to ride? Swinging 
a leg over, the claimed 37.5 inch seat 
height seems reasonable — combined 
with the spring sack caused by the 
rider's weight, the rider's feet can 
touch the ground. The ATK is sur- 
prisingly compact for a “Бір” four- 
stroke. Everything fits. Footpegs are 
mounted high which Crandall says 
keeps the rider's feet out of the rocks. 

Starting the 562cc Rotax motor is 
easier off the bike, kicking with the 
right foot ala Husky style. The big 
single kicks through fairly easily and 
placement of the piston just past top 
dead center is not as critical for start- 
ing as it is with some big-bore four- 
strokes. А compression release is fit- 
ted to make it easier to kick over. 
Once fired up we realized how loud 
the bike is. The twin exhaust pipes 
funnel into a “silenced” megaphone 
which lets anyone in the area know a 
booming four-stroke is around, A 4- 
inch Supertrapp is optional and we 
would recommend it on the basis of 
noise. 

Our first easy ride brought to light 
a jetting glitch in the 38mm Amal 
carb. The bike blubbered off idle 
slightly before cleaning out. Cran- 
dall hardly noticed it because he rides 
mostly with the throttle full on, and 
one size leaner on the pilot jet would 
probably clear it up. Other than that,

Atalmost $4000, the ATK 560 may not be for everybody, but it's got good 


suspension, excellent handling. (Below) Rear end uses A-Trak Torque 
Eliminator system, which reduces shock squat when the gas is turned on. 





the bike carbureted cleanly and pro- 
duced linear power; lots of it. There 
didn't seem to be any powerband, 
just turn the throttle and go. 

Fast. Very fast. The big thumper 
ate up terrain very quickly. The 
abundance of usuable power hooks 
upand the bike accelerates. It doesn't 
have the. quickness of a big two- 
stroke but it definitely puts the power 
to the ground. 

Power doesn't mean much if the 
bike doesn't handle but there the 
АТК shines. The Showa front forks 
have 43mm tubes; a White Power 
shock with attached reservoir is 
mounted in the rear. 

Production ATKs usea KTM front 
wheel with drum brake but Cran- 
dall's bike has a Honda disc brake 
set-up. He prefers the disc and so do 
we — it is excellent. 

While the bike weighs more than a 
big-bore two-stroke (249 lbs. dry), the 
weight doesn't hinder the handling 
that much. But let's be realistic. The 
extra weight would be a handicap in 
a really tough race. Crandall is 
extremely strong (his nickname 
among the other racers is animal") 
and is less bothered by the extra 
weight than most people would be. 
But make no mistake. It is the best 
handling four-stroke we have ridden. 
Тһе unusual (and single) rear sus- 
pension works and works well, with 
no linkage; the shock is easily access- 
able. - 

Тһе bike is fun to ride. It would 
make an excellent enduro bike with 
the addition of an odometer (and the 
quieter exhaust). It can be moto- 
crossed and on certain tracks might 
even work better than a two-stroke. 
But it was designed as a cross-country

motorcycle and works best in that 
environment. The bike is extremely 
stable over high speed whoop-de- 
doos and is confidence inspiring. 

Weran it down a very tight canyon 
figuring that the ATK would founder 
like most top-heay four-strokes. It 
didn't. Just put your weight forward 
on the tank and it turns. Now. Not at 
all like the mushy-turning manners 
of, say, an XR500 от a TT600, or 
even a modified XR. We were 
impressed. 

То keep the internals of the Rotax 
engine clean, a custom airbox houses 
a K&N filter. The airbox on Cran- 
dall's bike was designed for the desert 
and.is not set up to keep water out. 
Modifications may be needed to keep 
water out of the air cleaner if ridden 
in wet conditions. 

Tires used by Crandall at Barstow- 
to-Vegas were a 3:00 x 21 K139 Dun- 
lop up front and a 4:50 x 18 Metzeler 
providing the traction in the rear. For 
our ride a 5:10 x 18 Dunlop was fitted.

Clearance on the Cal-Fab aluminum

may not fit. 

At $4000 retail the ATK is not 
cheap. But if you can afford it, you 
can have the best handling four- 
stroke available along with a certain 
amount of exclusivity: There aren't 
that many out there. е

I've never been much of a four- 
stroke fan. I mostly race moto- 
cross, and I tàke it seriously. 
When Гм not racing, I ike fast 
play riding in the desert or canyons, 
and my impression of four-strokes is 
that they are all generally heavy, slow 
and under-suspended for my kind of 
riding. But since riding Chris Cran- 
dall's Barstow-to-Vegas-winning 
ATK 560cc four-stroke, my opinions 
have changed . . . somewhat. 

When I first hopped on the ATK, I 
was impressed with the power, except 
down low where four-strokes are 
supposed to have gobs of torque. 
Since Crandall had the ATK jetted 
for wide-open desert racing, low end 
was severly lacking. The bike blub- 
bered, coughed and came close to 
loading up at low rpm if much throt- 
tle was used. Beyond that, the ATK 
hooked up well and accelerated 
smoothly. The ATK hit hardest in 
the middle of the powerband and 
continued to pull strongly on top. 

The ATK is heavy and it feels 
heavy, too. However, its suspension 
almost makes up for the weight. 
Unlike most four-strokes I've ridden, 
the ATK doesn't bottom harshly and 
the rear end doesn't kick straight up 
or out to the side when hitting large 
bumps at speed. Тһе back end worked 
great. 

Up front, the Showa fork is dialed 
in nicely, and I couldn't find any 
fault. It soaks up the jolts and never 
bottoms. 

The ATK turns typically four- 
stroke-ish — precise, stable, but not- 
so quickly. It turns real well either 
using or not using a berm, as long as 
the turn isn't too tight. In hairpin 
curves, the ATK likes to drift to the 
outside. 

Brakes work just okay, while the 
bar/peg/seat relationship is comfort- 
able. 

I like the ATK 560cc four-stroke 
more than I thought I would, because 
it has good power and handles. It 
makes an excellent desert bike and a 
decent motocrosser. But for basic trail 
riding, forget it — it doesn't have 
enough low end, and it can't turn 
tightly enough. But that's okay, be- 
cause the ATK isn't a playbike . . . it

the Lion-Hearted 


A lot has happened in the thirteen years 
there have been Can-Am motorcycles. 
The capture of Bonneville land speed 
records. The 1-2-3 finish in the 1975 
National 250 Motocross Championships. 
Jimmy Ellis' incredible Supercross sweep 
in 1976. Can-Am's enviable collection of 
ISDE gold. 

And it goes on! With new ISDE gold 


from Geoff Ballard, who also happens 
to be one of three Can-Am mounted 
National Hare Scrambles champions. With 
NETRA and ТНРТРА titles. А 0-37 Overall 
Desert Racing crown. Three National 
Enduro titles in Canada. As well as a Pro 
Formula 2 road-racing championship. 
At the heart of all these Can-Am 
successes you find the same awesome 
device. A Rotax engine. Rotax has the 
ability, year after year, to extract amaz- 
ing power from a given displacement. 
That's why it's the engine of choice for 
Serious go-kart racers, TT riders and 


Formula 250 
roadracers around 
the world. 
But what is truly 
amazing is that 
Rotax achieves this 
performance while 
delivering a level of 
reliability only 
dreamt of by other 
manufacturers. 
This unique com- 
bination helps make Can-Am the ideal 
privateer's bike: a powerplant whose out- 


put has been carefully 
Shaped to deliver 
maximum performance 
for the competition 
at hand, without the 
frequent repairs and 
rebuilds some engines 
find necessary. 

Other motorcycle 
makers look with 
envy at Rotax. Many 
would like to own it. 


Can-Am already does.

"In any kind of motorcycling en-

"For most motorcycle builders,

year." ; 

"Because every Can-Am is virtual-

Since the violent suspension revolu- 
tion of the late '70s, the pace of 125 
and 250cc motocross development 
has slowed. Every year riders get a. 
little faster. Bikes get a little better. 
It's a kind of inevitable evolution. 
What's been going on at Can-Am, 
on the other hand, is heavy-duty 
evolution. With each bike now hand- 
built by British craftsmen and 
Can-Am designers freed from long 
production deadlines, the climate 


year, the improvements are truly 
impressive. 

Performance of both the Can-Am 
125 MX and 250 MX engines has 
been increased dramatically with 
the new R.AV.E. automatic variable 
exhaust port from Rotax. A new 
seat/tank combination allows a 
lower center-of-gravity for the fuel 
and a further-Forward cornering 
position for the rider. Both the 
front and rear brakes have been 
revised for better stopping power 


with a double leading shoe arrange- 
ment up-front on the 250 MX. 

The alloy swingarm is longer for 
better high speed stability. The new 
airbox gives increased volume. 

And Can-Am's Quad Link rear sus- 
pension system has been revised to 
give an easier ride all ‘round. 

Yet, with all this change for the 
better, Can-Am МХ-егѕ still do what 
they've long done best: promise, 
and deliver, rock-solid reliability. 


we do build, we build well!" 


for development is ideal. And this 


New TT head makes 
more thump than ever! 


The way to build the best 
motocross bike is pretty ob- 
vious. Put the best engine 
in the best chassis. 

As expected, this rule 


holds true for 4-stroke moto- 


crossers as well. Can-Am has 
the proof. 

Behold the Can-Am 560 
Sonic MX! Its tough, light- 
weight Reynolds 531 frame 
is hung with loads of attrac- 
tive new hardware. Dual 
leading-shoe front brake. A 
compact, new exhaust 
system. Massive 5.50 x 18 
Metzeler rear knobby. And 
Can-Am's superb new Quad 
Link Il rear suspension. 


Now, think! What's the 
fastest, most successful 
500cc 4-stroke engine on 
the dirt? None other than 
the Rotax dirt-track TT en- 
gine. This powerplant and 
the Sonic MX engine share 
the same roots. 

Now they share a lot 
more. Like the same large- 
valved, charge-flowed 
cylinder head. And the 
elimination of the engine 
counter-balancer for whip- 
lash throttle response. 

The best chassis. The best 
engine. Guess what that 
makes the Can-Am 560 
Sonic MX! 


Martin and Ballard 
have often 
been clean, but never 
this neat! 


Having a clean scorecard 
or finishing 1-1 is what it's 
really all about. But looking 
great while you're doing it 
definitely runs a close sec- 
ond. John Martin (nylon 
mesh racing pants with

Ballard (satin-finish Antron 
pants with Can-Am jersey) 
demonstrate a couple of 
ways to go about it. 

Your Can-Am dealer has 
lots more including hats,

MORE FIREPOWER FOR 
THE OPEN-CLASS WARS 


The explosive Can-Am 

500 MX has an arsenal of 
new features that help 
make it mightier than ever. 
More horsepower from its 
reliable Rotax reed-valve 
engine. Double leading-shoe 
front brake. A fat Metzeler 
5.50 x 18 rear knobby. 


Can-Am's new Quad Link II 
suspension. A bigger gas 
tank mated to a longer seat 
that allows a better rider

New R.AVE. valve 
from Rotax 
reshapes exhaust 
flow as you ride 


It’s no secret that small changes in a 
bike's exhaust system can make a 
big difference in the way its engine 
performs. The system that delivers 
peak, charging-down-a-straight 
power is not the same system that 
pumps out maximum torque for 
blasting out of slow corners. 
A Thats why 
most bikes 
come with a 
middle-of-the- 
road pipe: not 
ideal at top 
speed, but not 
hopeless at low. 

Now Rotax has added a remark- 
able device to the new Can-Am 125 
and 250cc liquid-cooled power- 
plants. It's called the Rotax Auto- 
matic Variable Exhaust. 

" в RAVE 
changes the 
flow pattern of 
your exhaust 
System as you 
race. Automati- 
cally. 

At high engine speeds (FIC. A), 
РАМЕ. offers the high-volume and 
effective extraction properties of a 
peak power system. 

At lower engine speeds (FIG. B), a 
guillotine valve, mounted in the 
port and activated by exhaust pres- 
sure, progressively closes to help 
maintain the flow velocity necessary 
for good extraction. 

R.AM.E. is a highly effective, yet 
remarkably simple device. And 
there lies its advantage over other 
designs. There are no complicated 
linkages to break, no delicate 
mechanisms to carbon up. 

Simply excellent performance. 
At any engine speed.

FRA Enduro 








Wiechmann wins 
FRA Frosty Cactus 


By Mike Klinger 
RED MOUNTAIN, CA, JAN. 6 


Mark Wiechmann used a new 1985 YZ250 
Yamaha to zeroall 11 checks in the first-ever 
Family Racing Association (FRA) Frosty 
Cactus Enduro. Duralube, Scott Goggles, 


Banzai Brothers and IMS all 
shared in sponsoring the Frosty 
Cactus, the first enduro of 1985. 
The organizers of the event 
stated that if they drew around 300 
riders the enduro would be a big suc- 
cess. Well, riders and spectators pour- 
ed into the old Charlie’s Place pit 
area to the tune of almost 400 entrants. 
Many enthusiasts were on hand to 
help including CORVA and several 
search and rescue teams. Barstow- 
to-Vegas winner Chris Crandall rode 
the event along with Team Hus- 
qvarna’s Mark Blackwell. 

At 8:00 a.m. Sunday morning the 
first riders hit the turf. Under cloudy 
skies and some sprinkles, Scott Samp- 
son, David Lemaster Jr., Scott Jacob- 
sen and Chris McCarrell were the 
first riders to make tracks on the vir- 
gin course. They traveled south to- 
wards Red Mountain in the open 
desert and approached the first spe- 
cial test, a 30-mph section that had 
everyone hustling for the three-mile 
duration. 

Kawasaki-mounted and Jones Gog- 
gles/Oakley/Duralube-sponsored 
Scott Jacobsen turned in an outstand- 
ing score — losing only 3.0 seconds, 
over the six-check loop one. Jacob- 
sen’s arch rival, Yamaha rider Mike 
Chamberlain Jr., placed second to 
Jacobsen with a score of 33 seconds. 








Both riders topped the hotly-contested 
Mini A division. Third overall went 


to Women C rider, Sandy Vance 
(Hon) who narrowly edged out Brent 
Bainbridge (Yam) and Bill Ostrom. 
Ostrom won the Beginners class with 
his fifth overall, the largest class 
entered with 23 riders. 

Loop two proved to be very chal- 
lenging for a majority of the riders 
although five hotshots did manage to 
zero the entire event. Starting at the 
same location as loop one, the riders 
hit the gears beneath the huge FRA 
banner that made it look as if the 
ISDE was happening. Again heading 
for Red Mountain the loop included 
five checks, of which three were tie- 
breakers including the finish check. 
The Frosty Cactus finally had some 
good uphills and some breath-taking 
downers, natural in the Red Mountain 
area. The loop ended at 30 mph 
through the moon rocks. ` 


When the dust had settled — sorry, 
there was not any dust — ''Cuddles" 
Wiechmann had completed the 70- 
mile course losing only 27 seconds. 
Four other riders gave Wiechmann a 
real run for the gold. Honda-mounted 
Scott Sampson lost the overall by 13 
seconds with a score of 40 seconds. 
Robb Mesecher was five seconds off 
the pace set by Sampson on a bor- 
rowed scooter. Sunday morning 





PHOTO BY SYLVESTER BOGARD 








Mesecher pounded his kick starter 
and could not get his new CR250 
to fire. He borrowed Randy Kemp's 
new CR250 and placed third overall. 
When the event was over, Mesecher 
suddenly remembered the rag that 
was stuffed in the air box! 

Enduro ace Bill Fullmer Jr. (KTM) 
had the enduro won except he must 
practice his trials riding. Coming 
into the finish tiebreaker check, 
Fullmer was too hot and had to actu- 
ally trials-ride the KTM into the 
cards and lost valuable seconds. 
Fullmer finished one second behind 
Mesecher. Kurt Butler (Yam), riding 
250 AA, also had his eyes on the top 
position but a burnt check dropped 
him to 33rd overall. American Hon- 
da’s Grant Palenske put his 250 in 
fifth overall with the last and final 
zero score on the day, 0.49. Rounding 
out the top 10 was sixth overall Mark 
Cook (KTM), Garner Palenske (200 
Kaw), Rick Daniel (Hus), Jack Sim- 
merman (Yam) and finally John 
Owen (KTM). Simmerman's score of 
1.72 was outstanding considering he 
was the top B rider. Suffering from a 
smashed foot, Harry Keast (Mai) 
managed 22nd overall, a score of 
1.115 and received the overall class 
win in the Super Senior division for 
young men 46 and up. Chris McClel- 
land (Yam) turned in the best time of 
the day. for all the C riders entered, 
3.185. Answer Products’ rider Dana 
Bell (Hus) again topped all the women 
riders and most of the men.

CRC Enduro 


Williams wins CRC 
Frosty Desert 


By Bill Herndon 

RED MOUNTAIN, CA, JAN. 13 
Open AA rider Steve Williams 
took advantage of an almost 
dust-free course to top 340 riders 
and take the overall win at 


California Racing Club's 1985 enduro 
season opener. 

This event was the first CRC three- 
looper in a while, and offered no late 
points on the first loop for two and 
three loopers. 

The first loop headed south paral- 
lel to Trona Road, then broke into 
the Spangler Mountains. Due to lack 
of checkers, tiebreaker check two was 
tossed. But a fun supercross section 
wiggled around for 7.5 miles into the 
next tiebreaker check three, at seven 
miles. This check was not very well 
hidden, as several sharp riders spotted 
it in time for perfect 30's. The 10- 
minute reset was too long for most 
riders. But dropping into Painted 
Canyon for a mile, then out across 
the open desert for four miles, and 
finally under the railroad tracks at 
the 20-mile marker to Old Rade- 
macher mining area, there was plenty 
of terrain variety. Running two more 
tunnels (not the headscraper variety), 
anda return to Teagle Wash brought 
the completion of loop one at 32.8 


miles. ( : 
After a 19-minute break, riders 
headed north near Trona Road. 


Heading oüt through old Charlie's 


Place, check two hid at 6.3 miles and ` 


was the “check-in” to the Special Test 
at 24 mph. Check-out came at 10.4 





miles, but again, many alert but early 
riders saw the cards, as they were not 
obscured well. At the reset, several 
riders said the speed in the rocks 
should have been set at 30 mph, 
because there were too many zeroes. 
Also, that the 10-minute reset at 11.2 
miles was too long. The course re- 
sumed through open desert, then 
into a rocky section that was used 
backward a week before by the FRA 
Enduro. Dropping down into a 30 
mph sandwash had everyone banzai- 
ing all the way to the railroad tracks, 
up and over them, then another 1.6 
miles to the home check at a 24 mph 
average. 

It was in the above 30 mph section 
that there was a monster road-crossing 
rut that could have caused instant 
endos for anyone not tapped out. It 
had a down arrow danger sign. But 
being right at the lip, there was no 
time for rider reaction. 

Loop three started after another 
short 16-minute break, and provided 
no Zero scores. 

Starting off southbound near where 
loop one had started, it seemed to go 
at a seemingly-easy 24 mph. Wrong! 
Riders soon found their hands full 
with the challenging and undulating 
camelback hills and off-camber and 
tight turns. 

One of the best-placed enduro 
checks ever, at 3.6 miles, came in this 
section, only about 20 feet over a 


‘ridge, and on a fairly steep downhill; 


there was simply no way to sluff or 
gain speed. This wasalsoa tiebreaker, 
and the check-in to the third loop 
Special Test section. With a 4.6-mile 
duration, the last three miles jumped 
to 36 mph. 

The check-out, also a tiebreaker, 
was up т a canyon in the Spanglers. 
It wasn't hidden well at all, and it 
didn't need to be: Everyone was late! 
Then, 0.4 mile after this check, there 
was а 10-minute reset up at the top of 
the mountain. This time, most of the 
riders felt it was a good length rest. 

Remounting, riders jumped into a 
long sandwash road, turned left up a 
big hill and opened out into some 
virgin enduro terrain for about one 
and a half miles. The go-for-it third 
loop course then dropped down into 


Teagle Wash, doubled back up the - 


Spanglers one last time, all the way to 
the top, down the back side into open 
desert to a sign saying “Boogie — No 
More Checks.” Some more virgin ter- 
ritory at 24 mph brought riders back 
to the finish of a creative loop three, 
and the finisher pin crew. 

Тһе biggest problems of the day 
proved to be marking, or lack of it, 
and not enough check personnel. 
Open A Vet Heath Hibbard, who put 
himself out of class-win contention 
when he burned a check by only one 
second, said, “Тһе best thing about 
the event was lack of dust, but they 
could have used twice as much rib- 
bon as they did." Bruce Boring, 250 A 
Vet, echoed nearly everyone's senti- 
ments: “They gotta have more checks, 
even if it is а three-looper.”’ 

The long-distance award might 
have to go to Fresno's incredible high 
school Junior, Donnie Simmone. 
While Don Sr. had the misfortune of 
shearing the lower shock eye on his 
250 KTM in the loop three challenge, 
Donnie took his KDX200 to second in 
class, fourth overall, only 23 seconds 
behind the overall winner Williams.

Red Alert! 





The great Navy land 
grab of 1985 


By Rex Reese 


For the past several months the United States 
Navy has been on maneuvers in the middle 
of California's Imperial Valley. They aren't 
using aircraft carriers or submarines, and 


nobody’s called in any tactical 
air strikes — not yet, that is. 
What the Navy's done is that 
they've thrown up a bureau- 
cratic smoke screen and have dived 
deep beneath a sea of paperwork and 
Federal inter-agency competition in 
an attempt to “withdraw” a total of 
315,164 acres of land in the Imperial 
Valley area for their own uses. And if 
the Navy gets their way, they will 
have closed down some of the most 
important and popular off-road rid- 
ingareas in the country, places which 
include the Plaster City open riding 
area and the famed and fabled Gla- 
mis sand dunes. This massive planned 
acquisition by the Navy would eat up 
just about every useable acre of riding 
turf in Imperial County. 

Тһе repercussions from the Navy 
withdrawal — if it goes through — 
would be serious. Closing off the 
many popular riding areas in the 
Imperial Valley, including the pro- 
posed Ocotillo Wells ORV add-on 
area and the San Sebastion Marsh 
would result in literally hundreds of 
thousands of off-road motorcycle and 
ATV riders being deprived of, in 
some cases, the only riding land they 
have access to. Тһе Glamis dunes, for 
example, were visited by approxi- 
mtely 400,000 ORV users in 1984, ac- 
cording to BLM figures. Also, much 
of the landat stake has been acquired 
and developed over the years with 
BLM and California State “Green 
Stickie" monies. 

But the loss of all of this land 
wouldn't affect just ORV users; there 
would be а “trickle down" effect as 
well. Businesses in the local cities of 
Brawley, El Centro and Imperial 
would feel the pinch as the money 
spent by off-road recreationalists dries 
up. In particular, the handful of 
motorcycle and accessory store deal- 
ers, without any sport to support 
them, would most likely go out of 
business; dealers in neighboring San 
Diego, Riverside, San Bernardino, 
Orange and Los Angeles counties 
would suffer to varying degrees as 
well. The Navy land withdrawal 
would probably be severe enough to 
create a ripple effect that would see 
off-roading across the country hurt 
greatly. 

Other land users besides off-roaders 
can expect to be displaced or other- 
wise affected by the proposed Navy 
land grab. A major group of victims 
would be local companies which ex- 
tract minerals and other raw materials 
from the ground for the construction 
and chemical industries. One com- 
pany in particular — National Gyp- 
sum — may end up getting thrown 


. out of its own mining facilities. In 


the same area are geothermal and 
natural gas sources which could be 
exploited to provide power to local 
communities — but the withdrawal 
would probably limit their use prim- 
arily to the Navy. In addition to 
these, the Navy land withdrawal 
would also disrupt local agriculture, 
archeological sites, natural forma- 
tions, and the habitats of rare anim- 





als and plants. 


The situation has created some 
strange alliances; organizations which 
never got along with each other before 
are now banding together in the face 
of a common enemy. District 38, 
which does virtually all of its racing 
activities in the Plaster City area, and 
the local Sierra Club chapter are now 
in agreement that something has to 
be done to stop the Navy from taking 
away half of the Imperial Valley. And 
if that weren'tall, San Diego Gas and 
Electric is taking sides with the racers 
and environmentalists because they 
have hundreds of miles (read mil- 
lions of dollars) of high-power lines 
strung up through the proposed with- 
drawal area. 

Even the Bureau of Land Man- 
agement stands to come out on the 


short end of the Navy land grab if it - 


goes through. According to BLM 
documents, valuable lands and re- 
sources would be lost to the Navy 
which would then manage said pro- 
perty as it sees fit, meaning that an 
estimated $394,000 a year which comes 
from various mineral use leases and 
other agreements would be lost. And 
private landowners in the proposed 
withdrawal areas would simply be 
denied access to their own land. 

So there you have it. Not only does 
the Navy land withdrawal seem unbe- 
lievably large (because it is), but, 
according to D-38 President Otis Fud- 
pucker, “It’s managed to offend 
everybody — off-roaders, the Sierra 
Club, local industry and utility com- 
panies, hunters, and even the BLM.” 

'The Navy wants to withdraw two 
large parcels of land, one called The 
Westside (Parcel 1); the other called 
Тһе Eastside (Parcel 2). Not count- 
ing the approximately 100,000-plus 
acres that the Navy currently controls 
(which is leased to them from the 
Bureau of Reclamation), BLM fig- 
ures reveal that The Westside would 
make up 110,944 acres under the 
withdrawal, while The Eastside would 
be another 96,650. 

Beside affecting the riding areas 
already mentioned, the two parcels 
would include several other riding 
areas, utility sites and even a couple 
of highways. Parcel 1 would also 
swallow up the Ocotillo Wells pro- 
posed add-on ОКУ area, all National 
Gypsum mining facilities and sec- 
tions of Highways 78 and 80. Parcel 2 
would include a BLM ranger station, 
the Gecko campgrounds, a portion of 
railroad belonging to Southern Paci- 
fic, portions of several geothermal, gas 
and oil leases, a portion of a local 
airport facility, and a segment of 
Highway 78. 

With the current testing facilities 
available to the Navy, their proposed 
land withdrawal has left many observ- 
ers puzzled, to say the least. 

Still, in light of the vast amount 
of land that the Navy's currently 
using, the withdrawal of an extra 
300,000 acres doesn’t seem to make 
much sense. The best guess, says 
Fudpucker, is that the Navy is plan- 


ning a new test program. of some 








type, but he isn't sure what itis. BLM 
documents state, however, that the 
withdrawal plan calls for using the 
land for the establishment of live 
bombing target areas, low-flight ap- 
proach paths, and safety boundaries. 

One of the most plausible reasons 
for the withdrawal, says Mark Ander- 
son of the Motorcycle Industry Coun- 
cil (MIC), is to keep the land in 
government hands one way or ano- 
ther. The land that the Navy wants in 
the Imperial Valley, in fact, involves 
three Federal agencies — the BLM, 
Bureau of Reclamation (BOR), and 
the Navy. 

Apparently, the Imperial Valley 
situation works out something like 
this: Some of the land that's being 
asked for under the Navy withdrawal 
plan belongs to the Bureau of Rec- 
lamation; other parts are leased from 
the BOR to the Navy, and still other 
land parcels are leased from the BOR 
to the BLM to manage. Apparently, 
some of the BOR land that the Navy 
wants is about to have its lease expire 
atsome time in the future; if that land 
isn't re-leased for withdrawal, it then 
reverts back to the public — the 
BLM. Тһе BLM, іп turn, wouldn't 
want to give up that land, and (as 
mentioned earlier) they don't want to 
lose the land they already have. So, to 
keep the land “useful” for any future 
expansion without having to bother 
with long delays and lots of paper- 
work, the Navy is putting forth its 
withdrawal now. The land the Navy 
gets would be theirs for a minimum of 
two years, but they could possibly have 
it for an indefinite amount of time if 
they play their cards right. 

Another reason, according to local 
newspaper reports, is that the Navy 
land scoop is allegedly a scheme to 
upgrade the El Centro Naval Air 
Facility to a full-fledged naval base. 

How the Navy is going to useall of 
that land is almost as mysterious as 
the history of the land grab itself. 
But, according to Fudpucker, Cali- 
fornia ORV lobbyist Bob Ham and 
BLM documents, the Navy would 
have its land right now had it not 
been for a couple of accidents. 

After almost six years of studies to 
determine its land-use requirements, 
the approval for the land withdrawal 
in the El Centro area was made April 
17 of last year. In August, the Navy's 
Real Estate Division in San Bruno, 
California, filed a withdrawal appli- 
cation with the BLM and said lànds 
were plotted a couple of months 
later. At about the same time a local 
rod and gun club in the El Centro 
area applied for a land withdrawal 
with the BLM so it could establish a 
target-shooting range — on the very 
same land that the Navy was plan- 
ning to withdraw. Just before Novem- 
ber the conflict was discovered and 
the Navy's paperwork wás brought to 
light. Local BLM officials — who up 
until then were completely unaware 
of what was happening — kicked the 
application back to the Navy due to 
some improper descriptions of the 
lands requested for withdrawal. 

Despite all their work, a fluke was 
all it took to make the Navy's plans 
suddenly come undone. But they 
weren't finished. In a matter of weeks 
a new application with the proper 
descriptions had been written up and 
was ready for resubmittal, but it was 
too late. The news of the Navy’s deeds 
had stirred up a hornet’s nest of 
indignation and anger — that was 
enough to stop them dead in the water. 

Since then, a flurry of letter-writing 
and telephone calls have been made 
by outraged off-roaders, Sierra Club- 
bers, hunters, miners — just about 
anybody you can think of — to the 
BLM and the Navy. Congressman 
Duncan Hunter (R-45), who's a mem- 


> 


-..berof.the House Committee on Armed 





Ре т р и ее eo | 


Services, is apparently doing his best 
to get the Navy to change its mind. 
Тһе BLM, according to El Centro 
Area Manager Roger Zortman, is try- 
ing to get the Navy to sign a memo- 
randum of understanding (MOU — 
also known as a “cooperative agree- 
ment") which would let them use the 
lands in question while still allowing 
other uses at the same time. Local 
ORV groups, such as District 38's 
San Diego County Sports Committee 
and the San Diego Off-Road Coali- 
tion have been working hard to keep 
the pressure up. 

The latest round in the dispute 
between the Navy and those who 
want to keep the Imperial Valley 
open was recently staged before the 
Imperial Valley Planning Commis- 
sion. (which is chaired by Mr. Don 
Brown, who happens to be an avid 
ATV rider, by the way). According to 
those who witnessed the proceedings, 
the Navy presented an apparently 
straight-forward argument for its 
cause. But, when spokesmen from 
the El Centro Naval Air Facility were 
asked specific questions about their 
reasons for the land withdrawal, they 
began taking evasive manuevers. 

Тһе major reason for the withdra- 
wal of so much land, the Navy is 
reportedly saying, is safety. The with- 
drawn land would be divided up into 
zones to accomodate various military 
activities, some of which would in- 
volve the use of live weapons and 
lasers. 

Zone A land, for example, is desig- 
nated for targets and weapons use 
which would automatically preclude 
any consideration for civilian use of 
any nature — in other words, off- 
limits! Zone B land is for approach to 
that target areas and arming of wea- 
pons and other related devices. Ac- 
cording to BLM documents, weapons 
may have to be ejected into Zone B 
areas due to equipment malfunction 
and/or safety reasons and would also 
be off-limits to civilians. Zone C land 
would serve as a safety boundary for 
Zone A and B areas as well as provid- 
ing room for maneuvering Naval air- 
craft. Zone C land, could be open to 
civilian use with some restrictions 
applying. 

However, the most serious aspect 
of the Navy plan are the areas desig- 
nated for Zone B use. The corridor 
which runs from the Plaster City 
area, through Naval Air Facility land, 
to Ocotillo Wells falls into this cate- 
gory. Additionally, there are two 
patches of land on NAF land which 
would receive Zone B designations 
—a sand dune riding area south of 
Superstition Mountain and a dry 
lakebed. The closure of these three 
areas would effectively shut down all 
District 38 racing. 

Still, the Navy assured those pres- 
ent at the Commission meeting that 
there "would be no conflicts" of 
usage under the withdrawal. The 
Navy maintains that though the land 
would be under their control, “со- 
usage” (as they call it) for civilian use 
would be allowed. 

Until February 5, the Navy land 
grab is in a holding pattern of sorts. 
That’s just enough time to become 
apathetic about what's happening 
and forget about it until it's too late. 
It's also enough time for the Navy to 
get its act together to make a strong 
argument about why it needs to with- 
draw the huge amount of land that it 
wants. And it would be a shame if 
they got away with it. 

For it's own part, the Navy has 
been very quiet about the whole mat- 
ter, probably hoping that it will just 
go away. The current plan is that 
Navy representatives will meet with 
BLM officials February 5 at the BLM's 
Riverside, California office to work 
out details; it wasoriginally intended 








to be a public hearing, but now it's 
scheduled to take place behind closed 
doors. It can only be guessed that an 
МОП will be signed, the Navy with- 
drawalapplication will be submitted 
(meaning the BLM must accept it), or 
the Navy will back down altogether 
(doubtful). But what will actually

Bobby Schwartz faces keen competition in Australian speedway racing. 





American speedway 
racers in Australia 


By Peter Baker 
SYDNEY, AUSTRALIA, DEC. 17 


“Some fun in the sun and a chance to win 


some money," 


was how Bobby Schwartz 


described his sixth successive trip Down 
Under during the Northern Hemisphere 


winter. 

Accompanying Schwartz is 
Shawn Moran, on his fourth 
trip to Australia, and first-time 
visitor Rick Miller. 

Former British Lions captain Nigel 
Boocock is helping to organize meet- 
ings for the trio. Particularly with 
Schwartz involved, "selling" Ameri- 
can riders to Australian promoters is 
not difficult. Even in the present de- 
pressed state of the Australian solo 
scene, American riders — Schwartz in 
particular — invariably provide keen 
competition. 

Тһе original intention was for the 
American trio to commence their 
tour with two weeks in Perth, but 
their equipment was misrouted to 
Sydney and the costs of transporting 
it across Australia ruled out the West 
Coast dates. Their tour actually com- 
menced with a hectic 2175-mile trek 
for meetings on consecutive nights at 
Adelaide, Broken Hill and Mildura. 

At Adelaide (December 14), the 
Americans met Phil Crump, Rod 
Hunter, visiting Englishman Mike 
Spink, and local stars headed by 1983 
European Junior Champion Steve 
Baker in a series where all riders had 
four starts. 

Throughout the meeting Crump 
had trouble getting off the starting 
line, but this invariably led to some 
spirited racing as he pulled off rousing 
passing maneuvers to score maximum 
points. 

Bobby Schwartz, in top form all 
night, lost just one heat to Crump 
—after having led for three of the 
four laps. 

Similarly, Shawn Moran had three 
wins and a second to Crump in a 
classy display, but strangely, Moran 
and Schwartz did not meet in direct 
competition. 

Those two Americans had pre- 
viously ridden at Speedway Park, 
which has a very heavy clay content 
and this was something Rick Miller 
had trouble adjusting to. Nevertheless, 





his two seconds and two thirds was a 
good performance; the only riders to 
outscore him were Hunter and Baker. 

Leading scorers for the outing were 
Crump with 12 points, Schwartz at 
11, Moran with 11, Hunter at 10, 
Baker with eight and Miller with six. 

The top six scorers then contested а 
feature event which was eventually 
won by Crump, ahead of Schwartz 
and Baker. Moran had been running 
second before being forced out with 
mechanical problems. 

At Broken Hill (December 15), the 
Americans again battled Crump and 
Hunter ina five-heat series where one 
rider sat out each race. Schwartz 
opened proceedings with a decisive 
win over Crump, and in the process 
set a new four-lap record time. The 
next heat saw Crump win over Moran, 
with Hunter in third ahead of Miller. 

Heat three proved a great contest, 
with Schwartz managing to pass 
Miller in the shadow of the finish line. 
Unfortunately, this event was Miller's 
last of the evening; his throttle 
jammed wide-open going down the 
straight and forced him to bail off. A 
sore wrist and bent frame were the 
consequences. 

Moran managed to beat Crump in 
the next race, but the two remaining 
Americans trailed both Aussies in the 
final heat. At the end of the series, 
Crump had 12 points from five rides 
(he replaced Miller once), while 
Schwartz and Moran got seven each, 
and Hunter four. 

Finale of the night was a seven-lap 
feature race (it should have been six 
laps, but the flag man got mixed up). 
Schwartz led for half the race before 
Crump worked his way past to take 
the win. Hunter finished third ahead 
of Moran. 

At Mildura (December 16), organiz- 
ers constructed a series similar to the 
previous night's meeting at Broken 
Hill. Riders were kept on their toes, 
as there was no easy heat. 

Тһе first heat had to be restarted 
after Schwartz was brought down on 








the first turn. When the dust cleared, 
each of the first three heats fell to 
Crump, beating the trio of Americans 
in one and lowering the four-lap 
record in another. That record had 
stood since January 1982 to the credit 
of Bruce Penhall, and is the only 
track record listed at Mildura that 
Crump did not hold prior to this 
meeting. 

Heat four was a good one for 
Schwartz, as he bested both the Aus- 
sies, and then went on to finish ahead 
of Miller and Moran in the race that 
Crump sat out. 

Miller battled on well after the 
mishap of the previous night, and his 
best effort came in the last heat as he 
gradually came to grips with the 
track. Moran had a few bright mo- 
ments, and was never far behind 
Crump or Schwartz in any of the heats. 
Points at the end of the heats were 
Crump with 11, Schwartz eight, 
Moran six, Hunter three (never a 
threat to the top three of the night) 
and Miller two. 

Again, a six-lap feature ended the 
program. Schwartz and Moran had 
only a very brief break since their 
final heat, whereas Crump had a gap 
of seven events before the feature race. 
This difference appeared to be the 
telling factor; in the end Crump 
pounced on a tiring Schwartz, while 
Moran just held Hunter off. . 





SYDNEY, AUSTRALIA, DEC. 22 
Bobby Schwartz narrowly es- 
caped injury in a crash at Round 
three of the series, held at Liver- 
pool City Speedway. 

Тһе first heat saw a close tussle at 
the first corner between Shawn Moran 
and local rider Billy Sanders. Sanders 
was able to hold the lead and take the 
win, setting the stage for the second 
heat. 

Schwartz got a good jump at the 
start of the second heat, and held a 
narrow but comfortable lead over 
locals Ray Palmer and Dave Mills. 
Moran lagged behind with clutch 
trouble — never far behind the front 
runners, but never posing a threat. At 
two and three-quarter laps the three 
leaders were still in a tight pack when 
Schwartz's bike shed its chain, locking 
the wheel and throwing him over the 
handlebars. Palmer had no time to 
evade the spill and plowed into the 
downed bike, clipping Schwartz's hel- 
met on the way by. Miraculously, 
Schwartz escaped with only minor in- 
juries 

Тһе Scratch final was a superb race 
between Sanders and the two Ameri- 
cans. Miller won the start, and for 
three and one-half laps Sanders was 
in the awkward position of trying to 
attack Miller while under seige from 
Moran. Miller finally went too wide 
entering the back straight, letting 
Sanders get underneath for the win. 

Miller, still with a sore hand fol- 
lowing last week's spill at Broken 
Hill, had spent considerable time 
straightening his frame and overhaul- 
ing the engine prior to this meeting. 
That effort paid off in the pursuit 
race, where he started off 10 meters in 
front of Sanders and Moran. On the 
second-to-last corner, Miller moved 
Palmer high on the track to grab the 
lead, while Moran was fourth just 
behind Sanders. 

Sanders again triumphed in the 
final, ahead of Palmer, Miller, Dole 
and Moran. Suffice it to say that 
Sander's advantage over the Ameri- 
cans in the heat and final was all 
gained at the start. 

Talking to Schwartz 36 hours after 
the meeting, he said that his aches 
and pains from the crash should be 
gone within the week. He is confident 
of being able to ride the first of the 
three meetings upcoming in Brisbane

Bell Sports formed 


Phillip Matthews, President of 
Bell Helmets, announced the 
formation of Bell Sports, Inc. 
This comes with the acquisition 
of four aftermarket firms in the 
motorcycle and automotive fields: 
Vetter Products, its subsidiary The 
Bagman by Vetter, Marsee Products, 
and Racestar, a manufacturer/distri- 
butor of safety suits for auto racing. 
The move diversifies Bell from its 
current manufacturing base into clo- 
thing and accessories for motorcycles 
and ATVs. Matthews said that even 
though the five companies would be 
headed up by a parent firm, “each 
unit would be working independ- 
antly." And, referring to Craig Vetter 
and Rex Marsee, Phillips added that 
theoriginal owners/founders of each 
unit would be retained. 

Bell Helmets is highlighting its '85 
product line with the Eddie Lawson 
Signature M2 high-performance/ 
racing helmet. It comes in the same 
red and white color pattern that's on 
the helmet of the reigning 500cc 
World Road Racing Champion and 
features a facsimile of Lawson's sig- 
nature. Other new models joining 
the Lawson M92 is the streamlined 
GT Royale and the “luxury edition" 
Star LTD II for street/touring, and 
the open-face Mag 4 helmet for off- 
road riding. 

Marsee is maintaining its current 
product line of riderwear, featuring 
touring pants and jackets for men 
and women, riding gloves, and cold 
weather gear. 

^. Vetter/ Bagman includes its popu- 
lar street fairing, electronics and soft 
luggage lines. But new products 
include the Vetter Fiber ATX ATV 
helmet; a Vetter ATV fairing with 
optional АМ/ЕМ/сазеце stereo; Bag- 
man АТУ tank and rack bags; and, in 
recognition of the growing scooter 
market, Vetter and Bagman hard and 
soft scooter luggage. е

Team Lockhart 
takes AMA 
endurance opener 


By John Arthur Burrus 
PHOENIX, AZ, JAN. 12 

They told everybody at the rid- 
ers' meeting 15 minutes before 
round one of the AMA-sanc- 
tioned 1985 U.S. Endurance 


Series that the bike leading the first 
few laps almost never leads at the end 
of the six-hour race. And they were 
right. Only Lockhart President Wen- 
dell Phillips and teammate Jim Vreeke 
were not listening, because they had 
started to lap the field by the 30- 
minute mark, and despite slowing 
considerably in the final half hour to 
nurse a thread-bare front tire on their 
900 Ninja, Team Lockhart finished 
two laps ahead of the second-place 
entry. Actually, their ability to ride fast 
and avoid crashing in turn 12 had 
quite a bit to do with the early lead. 

Тһе tower turn (12) at Firebird 
makes a transition from concrete to 
the asphalt as it enters the main 
straightaway that also begins the drag 
strip portion of the race track. It’s 
bumpy, and the chemicals applied 
for burnouts make the surface slick. 
Roughly half the 21 teams entered in 
the Championship Cup Series crashed 
in this turn during the first hour. 
Even the leader had a minor spill 
here on the way into the pit, but most 





everybody got back up and into the 
fray. Team Pork (Kevin Elliott, T'odd 
Griswold and Scott Scherer), how- 
ever, got off in turn four some time 
into hour five and had to settle for 
10th overall. 


Team H.A.M.E.R. (Norm Bene- 


;dum, Bob Eaton and Nick Nicolini) 


also encountered bad luck. They even 
had a45-minute engine change. After- 
wards, there was a note on a Seca that 
belonged to Nicolini's neighbor — it 
read: We borrowed your rear motor- 
mounts; don't leave until we finish. 

Atthe40 minute mark, Bruce Haupt 
of Team Roadburners went down in 
turn 12, the rescue causing a red flag. 
'Team Lockhart was back in front at 
the restart, and a real battle began to 
shapeup between Team Double Down 
(Henry Tecza, Nigel Gale and Jim 
Cox, sponsored by Nevada Yamaha 
and Moto Pro) and Team Spirit (Bruce 
Sassand Tom Marquart from Woody 
Wheel Works, Vickery Sports and 
Denver Used MC Parts). Both teams 
were on FJ600s, and both were very 
interested in the contingencies put 
up by Yamaha. Team Double Down 
had crashed twice and lost laps but 
were running strong and wheel-to- 
wheel with Team Spirit in the final 
hour. Although too late to file a writ- 
ten protest, the Double Down man- 
ager noticed that they had been 
marked (in error) as losing another 10 
laps or so in the final hour. 

All the way from Pennsylvania, 
Dr. John's Moto Guzzi (John Wittner, 











Noel Portelli, Gregg Smrz and Larry 
Shorts) ran consistently to take third 
overall for sponsors Moto Guzzi and 
Quadrifoglio. They had 245 laps, com- 
pared to the winner's 256 and second- 
place Team Spirits 254 laps. Right 
behind Dr. John was Team TNT 
(Тот Krause, Tom Dahl and Randy 
Bechtel on a 550 Suzuki from TNT 
Total Performance Engineering) with 
240 laps.

Lance tops 
PRRO sprints 


By John Arthur Burrus 
PHOENIX, AZ, JAN. 13 

Day two in Arizona's biggest 
weekend of motorcycle road 
racing was featured as a chal- 
lenge between Phoenix Road 
Racing Organization (PRRO) and 
the American Federation of Motorcy- 
clists (AFM), but before it was over, 
clubs from Texas, Nevada and Colo- 
rado had joined in to compete for a 
purse of over $2,000.00. In prepara- 
tion for the final match race that 
would determine the purse split, 10 
sprints were held for the 237 entries 
in 20 categories, including Vintage 
and Over 40. Тһе match race was ап 
open event for the day's fastest riders 
in each club. 

In the opening race, Superstreet A 
and B, Ottis Lance from Lone Star 
Suzuki took the first-lap lead on his 
1000 Suzuki followed closely by Scott 
Gray (750 Suz) from Kosman Racing, 
Jack Redmond and Healdsburg Cycle, 
and Greg Wing on a 900 Ninja. Wing 
crashed twice in the second lap, once 
in turn three and once in turn four. 
AFM rider Scott Gray took over on 
the next lap, and by the end of the 
sprint had acquired a huge lead as 
well as a new lap record, shaving 
about 2.5 seconds off the old mark at 
Firebird. Lance took second in Super- 
street A, and PRRO's Todd Griswold 
was third on a 900 Ninja from Motor- 
cycle & Marine, Moto Pro and TNT 
Total Performance Engineering. 


Bruce Sass, оп a Yamaha FJ600 
sponsored by Vickery Motor Sports 
and Dunlop, ran away with Modified 
Production C while Earl Roloff and 
Dan Turner battled back and fourth 
over second and third place. Roloff 


(FJ600) finished ahead of Turner's | 


550 Kawasaki. 

With 23 bikes entered, Formula 2 
competition belonged to Bernd Koeg- 
ler and his Honda 750. Aaron Turner, 
ona 77250 from Castle Rock Yamaha, 
started from the middle of the pack 
and by the white flag lap was in 
second just ahead of Keith Kiyota on 
a TZ250 sponsored by K&K Racing. 
Kiyota passed Turner in the closing 
seconds for the runner-up spot. 

Scott Gray (FJ600) led Mod Pro- 
duction A racing all the way from the 
second lap. Second overall was Earl 
Roloff on a 900 Ninja, and third 
overall was Mike Williams (750 Suz). 
Williams' performance earned first 
place in Mod Production B, and Ty 
Piz was second on a 500 Yamaha. 

Formula 1 and Formula 3 bikes 
competed in the next sprint, and des- 
pite displacement differences, one of 
the little guys was fourth overall — 
Dwayne Chung won F3 on a TZ250. 
Ottis Lance led the first two laps in 
Fl, then it went to Scott Gray for a 
while, but the ultimate winner was 
Bruce Sass. 

In the final match race to decide 
who would take home the money, the 








format was changed to 10 laps, and 
there were no equipment restrictions. 
Sass took a commanding lead as he 
had in every other race but managed 
to crash in lap seven, spoiling any 
chance at the money. That left two 
other fast men, Lance and Gray, in 
the 1-2 positions. Chung earned 
third-place money, with Bobby Burk- 
ler fourth, Koegler fifth, and PRRO 
favorite Willie Adams in sixth. Mike 
Williams, PRRO number-one rider 
last season was in seventh place.

Schlag super at 
Sand Hill 


By W.H. Spencer 
BRENTWOOD, CA, DEC. 30 

Joey Schlag got a new Open 
class Honda from sponsor Con- 
tra Costa Honda and smoked 
the troops at Sand Hill Ranch 


in preparation for the upcoming 
Golden State Series. Іп 250cc Pro 
action, Rich Mythen and Andy Ттез- 
sor put on the show with Mythen 
ending the day as a double winner on 
his Suzuki. 

Schlag got away early in both of 
the Open Pro motos with Wayne 
Archer hanging on to his rear tire in 
the first moto, but finishing second. 
Archer didn't hold up so well in the 
second round on his Berkeley Yamaha 
YZ. Devon Joos held the pair of 
threes for third overall over Clayton 
Blood and Tom Sweeney. 

Craig Hamilton ached both ends 
of the 125cc Junior show on his KX 
with Jeff Nicholson combining a 3-2 
for second over Jesse Britain's 2-4. 

Mythen's Suzuki performed flaw- 
lessly in both 250cc Pro motos as he 
was closely pursued by Andy Tressor 
on the ABC Body Shop special. Mike 
Scott finished third in rounds to top 
Tony Richards 6-4 tally.

McCoy wins at 
Indian Dunes 
By Chris Boice 
VALENCIA, CA, JAN. 12 


Team Honda's Mouse McCoy 
dominated both 250cc Pro mo- 


tos today on a well-prepared 


Shadow Glen track at Indian 
Dunes Park. 

In the first combined 125 and 250cc 
Pro and Intermediate moto, McCoy 
took the lead and was not seriously 
challenged for the whole 13-lap race. 
On the third lap Paul McLain (Hon) 
pulled up to within striking distance, 
but got out of shape in a corner, losing 
valuable seconds and letting McCoy 
increase his lead. Kawasaki-mounted 
Scott Robertson and FMF-sponsored 
Yamaha rider John Posca had a good 
race going for third. By the seventh 
lap they were joined by Answer Pro- 
ducts-sponsored Mike Watson. Wat- 
son stayed right on Posca's rear fender 
for the entire moto, but was never 
able to make the pass. By the eighth 
lap McCoy had a 15-second lead, 
with McClain still in second. With 
twolaps remaining Robertson began 
closing in on McLain, while McCoy 
was just cruising out in front. Time 
ran out for Robertson and he had to 
settle for third place. McLain held on 
to second with Posca and Watson fin- 
ishing fourth and fifth. 

McCoy took the lead right off the 
line in the second moto. McLain was 
again firmly in second and began to 
pressure McCoy by the end of the first 
lap. Robertson and Watson rounded 
out the top four. Halfway through 
the third lap McLain slipped inside 
McCoy оп а corner and took the lead 
away. With an enthusiastic cheering 
section offering support, McLain led 
for one lap until a hard bail on the 
back set of doubles took him out of 
the race. McCoy was again in charge 
with Watson moving to second and 
Robertson running third. McCoy in- 
creased his lead while behind him a 
real battle was taking place between 
Watson and Robertson. After riding 
right on Watson’s tail for seven laps, 
Robertson was able to make the pass 
and stay ahead until they crossed the 
finish line. McCoy took the easy 
overall win. Robertson's 3-2 netted 
him a second overall and Watson's 
5-3 got him a third. 

The 125cc Intermediate race was 
the most hotly contested of the day. 
In the first moto Kawasaki rider and 
Kal-Gard-sponsored Eric Casas led 
until Jason Davenport (Hon) got 
him on the fifth lap. Casas then had 
his hands full trying to maintain 
second and hold off a hard charging 
Paul Blomquest (Kaw). Blomquest's 
charge lasted four laps. He powered 
by Casas and set his sights on Daven- 
port, who was leading by several 
seconds. Time ran out for Blomquest 
and he had to settle for second. 

Davenport was first off the gate in 
the second moto. Blomquest was right 
behind him until he sixth lap when 
he slipped his Kawasaki by Daven- 
port’s Honda. What followed was 
seven laps. of fender-to-fender com- 
bat. In the end it was Blomquest who 
came out the winner by inches. His 
2-1 finish gave him the overall. Da- 
venport finished second and Casas 
was third. 

The 250cc Intermediate class was 
led from start to finish in both motos 
by D&D Racing’s Chris Boice.

Mayer, 
Intermediate 
winner at DeAnza 


By Nate Rauba 
SUNNYMEAD, CA, JAN. 13 
Suzuki Country's Brian Mayer 
left the entire Intermediate class 
in his roost today at DeAnza 
Racing Club's Sunday MX, 


winning both motos on his new 
RM125. His victory wasn't exactly 
easy though, since he had to work by 
the big bores in each moto. 

Greg Traver (Honda of Indio) and 
Sammy Ramirez (Yamaha of Red- 
lands), both aboard 250s, lead the 
start of the first moto with Mayer 
(250cc) Ruben Alvarado (Suz), and 
Johnny Bonacci (ЕМЕ/195сс Suz) 
trailing. Ramirez took the lead from 
Traver on lap two, and Mayer dropped 
him to third on the next lap. Mayer 
trailed Ramirez for two laps before 
slipping into the lead, and Alvarado 
dropped Traver back to fourth. At the 
halfway point, Mayer began pulling 
away, while Ramirez fought off Alva- 
rado for second. Alvarado kept the 
pressure up for several laps until 
Ramirez fell in a tight turn. Mayer 
kept up his fast pace and finished the 
race with a huge lead and was the 
only Intermediate that the Pros didn't 
lap. Bonacci was second, and Alva- 
rado third and first 250 ahead of 
Traver. 

Open Intermediate Vincent Gon- 
zales (Kaw) grabbed the holeshot in 
moto two, with Alvarado, Bonacci 
and Mayer following. For the first 
few laps, Bonacci held Mayer back 
until Mayer fooled him into giving 
up third: Mayer had been going to 
the outside of the finish line turn, but 
on the fourth lap Bonacci thought 
he'd take his line when Mayer sud- 
denly dove to the inside and passed 
him. Alvarado also fell to Mayer's 
charge on the same lap, and on the 
next go-'round, the Suzuki pilot was 
close to Gonzales. After eating the 
Open bike's roost for a few laps, 
Mayer found a way by and imme- 
diately began to leave the pack. The 
race was Mayer's, but second was yet 
to be decided as Gonzales, Alvarado 
and Ramirez began to get close in the 
last few laps. They all battled down 
to the checkered flag, but nobody 
could make a pass and they finished 
in the same order. Alvarado was the 
overall 250cc winner, and Gonzales 
took first in the Open division.

Oregon Pro 
Indoor ST 


Ву Clay Light — 
CORVALLIS, OR, JAN. 12 
Randy Green gunned down 
the 250cc and Open Pro main 
events at the biggest indoor 
short track race of the year in 


the northwest at Benton County Fair- 
grounds in Corvallis. Green took 
home a healthy chunk of the purse 
with his wins at the annual Richard 
Winningham Memorial All Pro 
1/20-mile short track. An added fea- 
ture Old Timer main was topped by 
Ken Celorie. 

Green dominated the series. of 
scratch and preliminaries heats, earn- 
ing direct transfers to the 250cc and 
Open mains as did runners up Ron 
Adams (Bul) and Mike Sullivan 
(Yam). Rookie Expert Ryan Fisher 
(Yam) also rode impressively, taking 
the second sets over Frank Word III 
(Yam). AMA Junior Pro Bob Klum 
controlled the consolation to finalize 
the 10 rider 250cc Pro main event. In 
the three lap Dash for Cash races it 
was Word and Green battling for top 
250cc honors with Green slipping 
inside to win over Word and AMA 








Junior Marty Zirbel (Yam). The 500cc 
portion was also led by Green, riding 
in amazing style, but Green surpris- 
ingly stalled, which put Zirbel into 
the lead to the flag over Rookie 
Expert Mike Oglesbee (Hon). 

The 250cc Pro main resembled a 
AMA Pro regional, pitting seven AMA 
Expert Pros, two Juniors and one 
Novice for the 20 lap final. Green sat 
on the pole and launched his N-D/Hi- 
Point/Simpson/American Honda- 
supported CR 250-based short tracker 
into the lead over Zirbel and Adams, 
but the red flags flew putting an end 
to the race. On the restart it was Word 
putting his outdated Pauls Sports 
Center Yamaha into the lead with 
Green in second but again it was the 
red flag syndrome and a restart was in 
order. On the final take, Word pulled 
an incredible holeshot, while Fisher 
rode second and Green was stuck 
mid-pack. Green worked through 
traffic to move to second early in the 
main and battled with Word for five 
laps, until grabbing the lead and 
motoring away with the race in fine 
style. He took it all the way to the 
checkers to beat Word, Sullivananda 
hoarde of Experts consisting of Del 
Schnitzer (Hon), Travis Babcock 
(Hon), Adams and Fisher. 

Oglesbee (Hon) led the Opening 
lap parade of the Open Pro main, but 
again Green was in the right place 
and shot into. the lead. This time 
there was no one to race with the 
national speedster who's only prob- 
lem was maneuvering around lapped

Keller, Nordin 
manhandle 
Medford Expo SX 


By Clay Light 

MEDFORD, OR, JAN. 11 
Honda-supported Rodney Kel- 
ler devastated the Open Pro's 
money final at the first of two 
nights of supercross in the 
Medford Expo Park arena. Keller 
controlled the evening with his sweep 
of heats and matching main events, 
also winning the 250cc final convinc- 
ingly. Fellow Honda rider Dave Nor- 
din took the final by storm as well 
over 1300 spectators looked on. 

Over 100 riders jammed into the 
infield in the massive facilities for the 
best race yet in the young 1984-85 
supercross season at the Expo Park, 
and all on hand got to witness sensa- 
tional riding by many out of the area 
riders. One such rider was Honda- 
mounted John Naylor, coming all 
the way down from Hillsboro to run 
away with the 13 rider 125cc finals. 
Locals Andy Dixson and Suzuki- 
mounted Robby Pearce could do 
nothing to stop Naylor, who took the 
win. 

Eighteen riders lined up three rows 
deep for the Open final which saw 
Honda 500 pilot Nordin motor away 
with the race from start-to-finish 
holding off the advances of AMA flat 
track National number 70 Jeffrey 
Campbell aboard a Yamaha TT 500 
built by Pro-Tech. Campbell rode 
consistently throughout the 20 lap 
main to finish runner-up, followed 
by Devin Madison (Hon) and Bob 
Klum (Hon) at the completion. 





The 250cc final also saw 18 riders 
line up for an all-out swapfest on the 
gnarley Rich Word-prepared course. 
Keller clobbered the field right from 
the start to lead an all-star cast around 
the whoop-de-doo-lined course with 
МХ Pro John Woodley (Hon) being 
the Eugene area riders main competi- 
tion. Ted Perreard (Suz) and Steve 
Croucher (Hon) rammed from behind 
but the Pro duo proved to be too much 
and finished in the 1-2 spots. 

Keller’s final task of the evening 
was to win the Pro money main 
event, with machinery ranging from 
125cc to 600cc. Keller’s 250 seemed to 
work the best as the 18-year-old 
launched his CR into the lead fol- 
lowed by 10 fast comrades. Campbell 
(Yam 500), Madison (Hon 500), flat 
track Pro Bob Ingle (Hon 480) and 
TT specialist Jeff Harsha (Hon 250) 
led a front pack war, but again it was 
Keller in complete control, dazzling 
the near capacity crowd with his 
tricks learned on the 250cc National 
circuit. Woodley made a charge only 
to drop back and leave Campbell in 
second to hold off Madison to the 
finish and end the first of two nights 
of racing.

McCay claims Mini 
win at Corona 


By Nate Rauba 

CORONA, CA, JAN. 11 

A qualifier for the amateur 
supercross to be held at Ana- 
heim Stadium on February 3, 
brought outa rather large crowd 
tonight at Corona Raceway. The Mini 
classes were full, and the Beginners 
and Novices played a decisive role in 
the outcome of the Intermediate class, 
won by Robert McCay. 

Novices lined up with the Inter- 
mediates, and at the start of the first 
moto it was a Novice, Robbie Perez 
(Rincon Kawasaki), who stole the 
holeshot from Intermediate Kevin 
Bussey (Best Ever Termite/Kaw). Guy 
Deckert (Kaw), a Novice, was in third 
ahead of McCay (PVK). After two 
laps Perez was pulling away from 
Bussey, while McCay was losing

ground to Deckert. On the third lap 
Perez got hung up in Beginner traffic 
which allowed Bussey to pass, but 
Perez stayed right on his rear fender. 
Soon they hita big pack of Beginners, 
and, although Bussey emerged still 
in the lead, Perez, Deckert апа McCay 
were close behind. On the next lap, 
McCay began to move and was into 
second when the white flag flew. 
McCay tailed Bussey into the hills, 
and took the lead when Bussey got 
stuck behind a slower rider. They fin- 
ished in that order, with Perez taking 
third and the Novice win ahead of 
Deckert. 

Bussey grabbed the holeshot in the 
second moto but was pushed outside 
and went over the large berm. Deck- 
ert was there to take over, as Novices 
Dan Humbach (Kaw) and Mike Alli- 
son (R&D Suz) held back McCay. 
Allison went down on the first lap, 
and McCay was there to put the heat 
on Humbach. For over half the race, 
these three kept one another in sight, 
while Perez held down fourth a ways 
back. McCay kept the pressure on 
Humbach, but on lap five, he went 
down trying to pass a Beginner. He 
got up in time to retain third, then, 
on the last lap, Humbach went down 
and McCay took second. Deckert was 
gone on his way to the win and 
Novice overall, so McCay had to set- 
tle for second but still took the Inter- 
mediate overall. Perez also went by 
Humbach to take third in the moto 
and second overall in his class, and 
Humbach got up in time to hold 
onto third overall in the Novice class. 
David Wodaszewski (Kaw) was the 
second Intermediate to cross the fin- 
ish line to lock up second overall in 
that class. Bussey was third overall 
with a 2-4 score.

Yamaguchi, Pierce 
shoot to 'Dunes 
MX wins 


By Terry Rezek 

VALENCIA, CA, JAN. 6 

Kevin Yamaguchi rode his 
Kawasaki to a 1-2 moto score to 
top the 125cc Beginner class at 
California Racing Club's (CR C) 
first motocross of the 1985 season at 
Indian Dunes Cycle Park. The 250cc 
Intermediate class win went to Alan 
Pierce (Kaw), who flew to a 1-1 over- 
all win; Rick Grant was second. 

As usual, the 125cc Beginner class 
was one of the biggest. Yamaguchi 
apparently decided to avoid the crowd 
and parlayed the holeshot into a 
going away win. The action was back 
in second. Aaron Wood and Michael 





Lucas fought over that spot until lap 
three when Lucas made a nice jump 
pass for second. Then, before the lap 
was over, Mike Finch had taken it 
away from him. At the end of moto 
one; it was Yamaguchi, Finch, and 
Lucas. 

In moto two, Brad Beaman smoked 
off the start line right to the moto 
win. Again the fight was over setond 
but this time Lucas and Finch had to 
contend with Yamaguchi. Lucas held 
the spot for most of the moto but 
Yamaguchi reeled him in on the last 
lap to finish second and get the best 
combined score for the day. 


Chris Cole looked like a shoo-in 
right from the start of the 125сс Inter- 
mediates. Jerry Wert and Jason 
Davenport were running second and 
third for most of the race. Tom Holt 
came from back in the pack, picking 
off at least one rider per lap, including 
Wert and Davenport. On lap five, 
Cole disappeared and finally showed 
up in last, barely moving. Holt cruised 
in for the moto win, followed by Wert 
and Davenport. 

In moto two, Holt took an immedi- 
ate lead and did not relinquish it. 
Todd Hayes and Cole were right 
behind him fora short while but both 
DNF and Wert took over second. Eric 
Clausen worked his way upand passed 
Wert in the last part of the race. Holt 
had the best combined score, with 
Wert second and Clausen third over- 
all. 

Pierce kicked everyone's rear knob- 
bies in the 250cc Intermediates, run- 
ning away with both motos for an 
easy overall victory. Tim Wahlberg 
tried valiantly to catch him during . 
moto one but finished Second, 20” 
seconds behind Pierce. Rick Grant 
did the same in moto two and got a 
little closer, but still no better than 
second. At the final tally, Grant had 
one point better than Wahlberg and 
took second overall. 


In the 500cc Beginner race, Michael 


^ Sheldon was the early leader with 


Scott Graham getting by him mid- 
race to take the first-moto win. Shel- 
don again took the lead in moto two 
and held off Graham. Graham DNF 
and Sheldon took the moto win and 
first overall. 

The Veterans class is almost the 
exclusive property of Marino Bastio- 
nell and today was no exception as he 
went 1-1 for the overall. He was fol- 
lowed by Vet Expert Ken Kulluson in 
both motos; third overall went to 
Errol Lewis, who took first Interme- 
diate. е
