It's amazing how little they use the throttle. Also, has there ever been a faster whoops rider than JBS? Insanity.

That transition from the sand rollers to the big banked corner is so sketchy. They make it look so easy.

That should be called the Tim Ferry award. He always rode a full season, very impressive.

Yeah exactly, that's why I dig it GuyB. The whole point of these cameras is to give the person watching insight into what's going on. The view isn't perfect, but it really shows how skilled and talented these guys are. The helmet cams not only make it look easy at times, but can end up looking downright boring.

I agree and I disagree sbarrington. It was a little nauseating, but it also showed the elevation change of the track much more, and how much the bike lays over in corners and over jumps more. The riders do such a good job of keeping their heads still that helmet mounted cameras end up looking tame. But in this vid, you can see just how much they're manipulating the bike under them.

Vital MX Race Tech Submission

Justin Watson

Just eleven months ago I made the difficult, but at the time necessary, decision to sell my motocross machine. The 2009 YZ250 was the first bike I had ever purchased brand new, fresh off the showroom floor. Racing motocross is not only immensely difficult on your mind and body, but also wreaks havoc on your wallet. As a college student, working part-time in between classes and homework, making my way to the local tracks became less of a priority.

If It's been eleven months since I've owned a dirtbike, why am I wasting my time writing this submission essay? The simple answer is because I couldn't stay away from the sport I love.

Unlike most of my race competitors, I got a late jump on the motocross game, lining up behind the starting gate for the first time at the "old" age of 16. Now, at the age of 22, I thought I could hang up the boots for a while and pursue other interests that were less expensive and exhausting while I worked my way through school. I couldn't have been more wrong. As all of you surely know, racing is in our genes, and the slightest smell or sound can give us fits of nostalgia. I was bitten by the MX bug again, and I decided it was time to get back to doing what I love.

My current bike of choice is now a 2004 CR250R. I have not even had a chance to ride my new weapon yet, but I have lost count of the hours of sleep I lose each night thinking about my virgin ride on my new (to me) red rocket.

In my 6 years of riding and racing, I have not once been able to afford any type of suspension work outside of the blown fork seal here and there. To receive a chance to write a professional review on top of a full suspension revalve is nothing short of a jackpot for a struggling college student. I hope my submission demonstrates that I do have the right stuff, but just in case, I'll go buy a few lotto tickets!

Thank you,

Justin Watson

I wish they would change the track a little some year (and I don't mean bulldozing the Chuck Sun jump).

Clinton Moore's 720 crash looked bad. I'm pretty convinced that 720 isn't possible. WIth the way him and TP come in, the axis of the bike just isn't coming around the way they want it.

I would be a complete f***ing liar if I said that didn't look amazingly fun. Just gotta go move some funds around, and I'm off to a dealer.
