THE WEEKLY FEED: CAN-AM BACK IN THE DAY, VIDEO AND SOCIAL HIGHS

CAPTURED

In 1975 Greg Robertson was a dominant force in the Indian Dunes, Valley Cycle Park racing zones. Piloting a Can-Am for Kolbe Cycles, Greg was one of the few racers who could beat Bob Hannah and his Suzuki RM250 at Valley Cycle Park. And Greg did it religiously on his Can Am. This shot is from Indian Dunes during one of their infamous Grand Prix events. Thank you Mark Kiel for shot.

JCR’S TREVOR STEWART WINS VIEWFINDER’S BIG SIX GP

Thank you to the Viewfinders MC who put on a great Grand Prix. The racers were treated to an overnight rain shower that left course conditions epic for Sunday’s AMA BIG 6 WCGP pro race. Lap times were approximately 11 min 40 sec for a race that lasted just over 1 and a half hours. The course was fast and twisty, with sand and hardpack mix, including traditional GP features such as paved sections, MX jumps, desert whoops and sandy berms. JCR/Honda’s Trevor Stewart dominated the field, rounding the first corner in third place he outpowered the field on his Gage Day prepped CRF450RX. Trevor, managed the entire 1.5hr plus, winning by a 25-sec margin.

WORKS CONNECTION KTM / HUSQVARNA ELITE AXLE BLOCK KIT

Consisting of a pair of CNC’d Elite axle blocks, a titanium drive-side receiver and a square removal tool nut, the Elite Axle Block Kit converts your stock KTM / Husqvarna rear axle from a fixed design into a floating type. KTM and Husqvarna Factory teams use this same floating type design on their race team bikes to improve traction as well as straight line stability and now those same benefits are available from this kit. Another key component is the integrated receiver post on each axle block that allows the use of a caliper to precisely measure and match the left and right axle block’s position. This assures exact alignment of the chain and sprocket so critical to prolonging chain and sprocket life. Ultra-slim design, simple installation and offered in five vibrant color choices: Blue, Red, Black, Orange and Silver. Designed and manufactured in the USA. Price: $89.95                                              www.worksconnection.com

WOLF: BACK IN THE DAY

The Nevada Rally, 1994. While I’ve never been totally comfortable racing the desert at speed, this event was a bucket list race for me. Bruce Ogilvie set up a full factory machine, a mechanic and support and I remember super long days with high mileage at speeds which scare an enduro guy. Bruce told me that I could keep that bike pinned in top gear for long periods of time, and I remember laying on the tank, flat out across a Nevada two-track road for miles. The Honda XR625 was superb in this format and covering 400-500 miles a day was intense.
