A HISTORY LESSON: Roger DeCoster
NEWS, VIEWS AND DROOL THAT WON’T STICK TO THE WALLS
FMF HAD A DECENT WEEKEND!!
GOD SPEED DICK MILLER
I lost a friend last week in Dick Miller, who was one of the early editors of Motocross Action Magazine. When I came on board at Dirt Bike in 1980, he and Super Hunky were legends. Dick took to me (most likely because he was a superb desert racer and I was decent at the Enduro thing) and during my first years he took me on the road to several big moto events and supercrosses. The man wouldn’t back down from Andre the Giant, drove like a madman, was a superb shooter and had the panache to befriend some of the best motocross racers of time. He will go down in history as the man who kick-started the USA’s dominance in the Motocross des Nations when he fought with the AMA and the manufacturers to send a team. When it came down to money he helped raise the funds and talked with his friend Roger DeCoster about supporting the effort. The all-Honda Roger DeCoster managed USA team when on to win and start at near double decade trend. Rest in peace mi hermano.
Steward Baylor picked up where he left off last year by winning the opening round of the Kenda AMA National Enduro Series this weekend near Sumter, South Carolina. The Tely Racing KTM rider took care of business on the rough and sandy 60-mile course, winning three of six tests en route to an 18-second margin of victory over Josh Toth.
