Rider-Down-Logo-4-19-13Cycle Ranch and RiderDown Foundation have partnered in a fundraising effort the weekend of April 27th & 28th during the NMA Grand Nationals Qualifier and Winter Crown Series Finale.   In addition to the race action, we are teaming up with the one and only “Rhinestone Cowboy”, Kent Howerton, to host a fundraising event where proceeds will be donated to RiderDown Foundation.  Activities range from an R/C Truck and Tractor Pull Expo and Exhibition, a FMX Demonstration, a Texas-style Chili Cook Off and the Saturday Night Benefit Auction, with all kinds of goodies available including some very special autographed gear from Kent Howerton himself!  This will be an awesome event with a chance to give back to our sport and help those fellow riders when they need it most.

“I am glad to see Cycle Ranch with a new owner and new management under George Russell, the track and property is looking great. It now has a chance to become one of the best facilities in the US” says Kent.  “When I was asked to help Cycle Ranch out with a charity event, I started asking around to find out which one would be a good fit for what we wanted to do, and RiderDown always came up. It has a good reputation and mission, and I think going through them we can get some good things done. I look forward to working with them.”

Valcourt, Québec, September 7, 2011 – Motoworks / Can-Am pro ATV racer Josh Creamer won both pro motos aboard his DS 450 ATV at round 10 of the 2011 New England ATV Motocross Series to take over the Pro class points lead. Creamer put together two come-from-behind rides winning the mud-filled first moto and also the second Pro moto to post his fifth overall victory of the season, pushing his class points lead to 10 with only two rounds remaining.

“Creamer may not have gotten off to a good start in the motos, but he displayed the composure of a true champion as he rallied in the mud to notch two moto wins, take the overall victory and the overall Pro class points lead. Josh has won three straight races now and he definitely has his Can-Am dialed in,” said Jimmie O’Dell, Race Manager, Can-Am.

The first Pro class moto was delayed close to an hour as lightning and thunderstorms engulfed the Hurricane Hills motocross park in Clifford, Pa. The track was left a water-logged mess, but the Pro class took to the line in spite of the conditions. Creamer was the last pro off the line, but quickly found his way into the top three. After passing into second, Creamer then followed early moto leader, BCS Performance / Can-Am DS 450 racer Cody Miller, for a couple of laps before taking the lead and the win.

A missed shift put Creamer to the back of the class at the start of the second moto, however, Creamer pushed his DS 450 into the top three, again, and soon passed his way into second place. He then passed for the lead later in the moto and held on for another overall victory and his fourth win the last five rounds of racing.

“The weather was horrible. There was a torrential downpour and lots of lightning before we were supposed to start lining up and they had to delay the race for an hour until it cleared. That made the track really muddy for the first pro moto,” said Creamer.

Miller finished second in the first Pro class moto, and paired that with a third-place ride in moto two. His 3-2 score was good for another trip to the podium. He also finished second overall in the Pro-Am class on the day, posting 2-2 moto scores.

“This has been an interesting season so far and the competition has been tough, but I am happy that I have made it to the podium almost every round,” said Miller.

Two rounds remain on the 2011 NEATV-MX schedule, with Round 11 slated for Sept. 18, at the MX 101 facility in Epping, N.H.

WASHOUGAL, Wash. (July 23, 2011) – The eighth round of the Lucas Oil AMA Pro Motocross Championship welcomed a massive crowd at Washougal Motocross Park on Saturday, as Rockstar/Makita Suzuki’s Ryan Dungey, of Belle Plaine, Minn., captured his third victory of 2011, on a day that saw a dramatic mix-up in the 450 Class standings. In the 250 Class, Monster Energy/Pro Circuit/Kawasaki’s Blake Baggett, of Grand Terrace, Calif., raced to his series-leading fifth victory of the season.

The opening moto of the 450 Class featured a tremendous battle between Dungey and his Monster Energy Kawasaki-mounted rival Ryan Villopoto, of Poulsbo, Wash. Looking to grab his first ever win at his home track, Villopoto fended off the many challenges of Dungey, until the reigning champion fell while attempting to pass Villopoto for the lead. As Villopoto rode to the win, Dungey remounted to secure second.

In Moto 2, a holeshot and early lead by Villopoto was eliminated when a red flag was thrown after just over three minutes had elapsed. Following a restart, Dungey grabbed the lead out of the gates and never looked back. Villopoto did his best to keep up, pacing Dungey throughout the first third of the moto. However, the deficit gradually increased, and Dungey cruised to the checkered flag. With identical moto scores, Dungey and Villopoto tied in points, but by virtue of the second-moto tiebreaker, Dungey earned the overall win; his fourth straight at Washougal.
