LOL - half of the athletes on Geico are represented by WMG - if they cannot find a title sponsor for that program, idk.. that's pretty sad.

HBO Max isn't on Roku, idk if that has anything to do with this - but I found that odd.

"Frese" was Frese Discount Center (owned by Fred Frese - quite honestly, the BEST Announcer Amateur Moto ever had). Before shoe companies sponsored MX Athletes directly, Fred took it upon himself to sponsor a whole lot of us. He'd give us shoes for Moto wins at Nationals / Regionals, Holeshots at big races, or even if I would announce a Moto with him (when I was like 8 / 9 haha). The dude was an absolute Legend. I used to stay with them in the Summer (we are all from Michigan - Red Bud area), it was definitely a fun era. He really pushed DC into Moto, a ton of people were wearing DC's because of him. His son's were pretty fast too - Kyle won a handful of Spring National Titles, etc. when we were on 50's.

Back in the day, you couldn't open a Final Lap MX or MotoPlayground without seeing Frese stickers all over. I still have trailer sized Frese stickers in our warehouse haha

I had tons of those stickers from the Hahn bros back in the day and I never knew what it was...the sticker I'm referring to is the "FRESE" sticker on Villopoto's chest protector in the first pic. Does anyone here know what company Frese was?

the people that voted this down, have NO idea what you are talking about haha I've seen a handful of titles lost in the first Moto (picking a 30+ gate pick, having to start from WAAAYYYY outside and work through the field). It is definitely archaic haha ... more »

Short answer, No. One thing you have to remember about Amateur MX in America (versus literally every other country), is our love for having 153 classes available for you to race. If we had just ONE 85 / Supermini / Big Wheel / Whatever you would want ... more »

"Birch Run' is the exit you take for Baja (~ 5 minutes from the track), on it there are a: Holiday Inn, Comfort Inn, Country Inn & Suites, any of those I recommend. the Country Inn & Suites is right next to the Outlets (heaps of food right there). ... more »

haha Yea! He's the sweetest, isn't he? hahaha Jokes aside, I am insanely proud of Django - not many humans can carry themselves through what he has. It's been a long-ass road, and he's bled for everything on it. Success and nothing less for my dude. ... more »

Red Bud on a local weekend or Open Ride - not National weekend, just enjoy that one (track gets brutal, fun but brutal). Martin is the best (only) constant practice track on the Westside. Morelands & Valley (used to be one in the same), both are ... more »

As both an owner of an indoor karting facility & as someone of whom works in open-wheel racing, Karting is epic! I wish more Moto people were cross-over athletes. I've seen more Moto people transition better back to karts (at our track) than Indycar ... more »

Props kid, cool to see some solid content coming from the MX community. Especially these two parts:1. Tame Impala > shitty trap music, thank you. Felt like it was 2014 and good music existed. 2. You shot a handful of my groms so, stoked to see them ... more »
