BLAST FROM THE PAST: 1978 Sears Point MX

Tony Blazier posted this wicked outdoor MX photo and said “Man, you just don’t see tracks like this anymore… 1978 Sears Point Brad Lackey (32) leading Gaylon Moiser (13) Jim Pomeroy (102) and Bob Hannah (2)”

NEWSWORTHY

Sherco’s Mario Roman won the Portuguese Hard Enduro Series

Mario: “It was a very good race for me with three and a half hours of tough racing. The track was challenging with a lot of rivers up and down which made it a very physical race with not a lot of chance for rest. Some of the streams were very slippery but I rode smart and smooth and Sherco Portugal made a great job preparing my bike for this race.”

KREFT MOTO Centrifuge XL XPLOR PDS – Oversized Shock Reservoir

Starting in 2017 all KTM XC-W’s and EXC’s are outfitted with the WP XPlor PDS rear shock.  This rear suspension design is simple, compact, lightweight, and offers excellent ground clearance for log crossings. It’s a great option for off-road and enduro riders – but it does have limitations.

    • Less Oil Volume: 40% less oil than a comparable WP linkage shock
    • High Operating Temperature: 50°F hotter than a WP linkage shock
    • Vulnerable to Fade: quickly loses damping force over riding time
    • Rapid Fluid Damage: low fluid volume and high oil temperatures cause shock fluid to deteriorate rapidly

 

The new Kreft Moto Centrifuge XL not only increases the volume of the reservoir, it is paired with a unique centrifuge design, cooling fins, and Kashima coating which reduces operating temperature and friction. The result is consistent and predictable performance, even when the shock is working hard.

PERFORMANCE IMPROVEMENTS

  • Runs Cooler: reduced up to 25⁰ F
  • Less Fade: reduced by 35%
  • Less Friction: reduced by 34%
  • More Oil Volume: increased by 18%

WOLF: BACK IN THE DAY

I thought that I’d been to some tough events, but the ISDE Sweden proved to be a monumental test via 180-mile days, super tough terrain, challenging tests and when weather hit the event- then it got tough. My first Six Days and most definitely the toughest of the four that I raced.
