BLAST FROM THE PAST: Danny LaPorte USGP 1980

Danny LaPorte’s rise to motocross stardom was firmly entrenched when he won his world championship in 1982. But prior to that he had made his name as 500 rider, winning the National Championship in 1979. In 1980 his results were mixed, at the Carlsbad USGP it was dominated by another California boy Marty Moates. Danny would sign with Honda in 1981, be a member of Trophy and Motocross des Nations U.S. squad that catapulted America into rarefied air, would sign with Yamaha in 1982 and win the 250 World Championships.

WOLF: BACK IN THE DAY

This was shot in Pennsylvania maybe 2012. KTM flew us out to test their entire line of off-road bikes the day before a National Enduro. Then we got to pick our bike of choice and race it in the enduro. It was a tough call since I loved the 300 2-stroke, but in testing on a dry woods loop, the 350 EXC-F was easier to ride. I chose it, then it rained all night and the event turned tough and ugly. It takes a California boy a little time to get used to snot racing in the woods but I came through it beat up but alive. I’m constantly amazed at how fast folks are back east, they dance through the woods at speeds that are stunning.
