MAR10?BOBBY BONDS INTERVIEW
You might not know who Bobby Bonds is. The California native grew up living and breathing motocross and was at one time hailed as the next big thing to hit the motocross world. Yet Bobby suffered the wrath of supercross and suddenly became injury-prone. Bonds had the speed to run with the big dogs, but his opportunities to race were diminished by injury. Forget about motocross, because Bobby Bonds is back and racing again. Only this time he?s taking another route towards being a champion – the WORCS series route. At round one he finished a disappointing 26th place after his fuel supply vaporized, but he struck back with a vengeance at round two with a win. We caught up with Bonds to hear his thoughts on the WORCS series and find out what he wants to accomplish.
And what is your style of riding?
Well at least you?re honest.
Why did you make the switch from motocross to off-road racing?
In the opening round (Mesquite, Nevada) you finished 26th place. What happened on lap 10?
What went through your mind when you ran out of gas?
But then you rebounded to finish first place in round two at Bastrop, Texas.
You stand fifth place in the point standings and only 13 points out of the lead held by Nathan Woods. Can you win the whole deal?
Compare the pace of the WORCS series to a motocross race.
What do you have your sights set on doing the remainder of the year, meaning where will the world see Bobby Bonds race next?
Who are your sponsors?
Have you heard about any contract negotiations for your services in the Nationals, and what are your goals?
All right, Bobby. Thank you for the interview and good luck cutting your teeth in the WORCS series.
