CARLSBAD, Calif.—San Diego-based eyewear brand SPY has partnered with seven-time AMA Champion and SPY founding team rider Jeremy McGrath and Be The Match—a non-profit organization dedicated to providing bone marrow transplants to patients in need—to launch its online fundraising platform, SPY.Flipgive.com.

“Many know of my family’s recent struggles with leukemia and our work with Be The Match,” says Jeremy McGrath. “The outpouring of support has been humbling as thousands of new bone marrow donors have been registered. What Be The Match really needs now is financial support as it costs $100 to analyze each swab and add someone to the registry.”

Today, October 29, through Veteran’s Day, November 12, SPY will donate $20 for every $40 online gift certificate purchased with the goal of raising $10,000 for Be The Match.

Hurricane Mills, TN – Factory FMF/KTM rider Maria Forsberg earned her thirteenth straight win at the final round of the GNCC Series held at Loretta Lynn’s Ranch. Her win at the ranch marked the end to a perfect GNCC season.

Forsberg has already set multiple records this year. Forsberg won gold at Women’s EnduroX for the second straight year at the summer X-Games. She then went on to wrap up her GNCC championship the following weekend four rounds early. Later in the season she would become the first female rider to overall the morning class in the GNCC Series. And after thirteen straight wins, she ended her season with a perfect score.

The talented factory rider has set the benchmark again for fellow women racers with the completion of the perfect season. However, her season is not done. Forsberg will head to Las Vegas, NV in mid-November to compete in the final round of the AMA EnduroCross Series where she currently leads the EnduroCross Women’s point standings. A top three finish at that event would secure another championship for Forsberg who is well on her way to a perfect year.

Maplesville, AL – Factory FMF/KTM rider Russell Bobbitt ended his season in the best way possible after capturing the win at the final AMA National Enduro round.

Bobbitt rode strong through all six special tests. Throughout the day, Bobbitt was able to earn three of the six special test wins and held the lead from the second test through the finish.

“I had a really fun time riding today,” remarked Bobbitt. “The rain helped keep what was going to be a really dusty race into perfect race conditions. There were a lot of tight sections that I really enjoyed and I am happy to walk away with the win at the end of the season.”

Ontario, CA – Red Bull/KTM rider Taddy Blazusiak returned to his winning ways and claimed the win at the fourth round of the AMA EnduroCross Series held at the Citizens Business Bank Arena.

The afternoon started out well for both Red Bull KTM’s Blazusiak as well as Factory FMF/KTM rider Mike Brown. Blazusiak turned the fastest time in the qualifying hot laps while Brown was 2nd fastest. The quick times gave each rider first gate pick in their respective heats later in the evening.

Brown was up first in the second Pro heat. He jumped off the line to a 3rd place start. Unfortunately, he suffered a crash in the matrix early on which cost him a few positions. He was able to recover and finish in 3rd place but was one shy spot of qualifying and had to regroup to return for the semi race.

Irvine, Calif. – Monster Energy/Pro Circuit/Kawasaki’s Blake Baggett commanded his fourth overall win of the 2012 AMA Pro Motocross Championship at Moto-X 338 in Southwick, Mass., with an exciting late-race pass to steal the win with a 3-1 moto result. Baggett battled through erratic weather, a challenging track, and a field of hungry competitors to extend his point lead and keep the red plates on his KX™250F for the ninth-consecutive round.

In the 450 class, teammate Broc Tickle rode skillfully throughout the day to earn his second podium of the season, landing in third place with a 6-4 result. Monster Energy Kawasaki’s Tyla Rattray grabbed the second moto win, his first moto win in the 450 class, but problems in the first moto saw him finish fifth overall with a 20-1 result.  Teammate Jake Weimer showed speed all day, but a few mistakes would leave him finishing 18th with a 13-19 moto result.

Buchanan, Mich. – With nine rounds of racing complete, AMA Pro ATV points leaders Chad Wienen and John Natalie have perpetuated the title chase all the way to the season finale after splitting moto-wins at the penultimate round of the 2012 AMA ATV Motocross Series at RedBud MX in Buchanan, Mich. Wienen proved strong as he outlasted the defending champion in a two-moto format, taking the overall win and extending his points lead with one round remaining.

Wienen once again grabbed the ATVRiders.com Fastest Qualifier Award with a 2:10.9 time. When the gate dropped for Moto 1, it was Motoworks/Can-Am’s John Natalie who took the SSiDecals Holeshot Award, with TBROWN Yamaha/Moto-X-Perts’ Thomas Brown close in tow. Brown made the move past Natalie to take over the early lead but Natalie quickly stole it back for what turned into a dominant Moto 1 for the defending champ.

Wienen Motorsports/SSi Decals/Walsh Race Craft/Yamaha’s Wienen began Moto 1 just outside the top five but worked his way into the third place position where he battled with his Yamaha Racing teammate Thomas Brown, eventually passing Brown with two laps to go. Brown was able to hold on for a third place finish in Moto 1.

Millville, MN – Husaberg Factory rider Nick Fahringer finished 3rd overall at the sixth round of the OMA’s held at Spring Creek MX Park.

Fahringer got off to a 3rd place start and was passed in one of the opening corners by another rider. “Unfortunately, I got passed quickly in the race and then struggled to get back around the rider,” stated Fahringer. “After about a lap and a half I was able to pass back into 3rd but I had lost a lot of time to the leaders at that point.”

Fahringer continued to plug away on the tough, technical track in the exhausting heat. At the end of the race, he was able to hang on to 3rd place to position his Husaberg on the podium. Fahringer will now head to Pennsylvania this weekend in order to compete in the seventh round of the AMA National Enduro Series where he is currently 5th overall in series point standings.
