This Summers Top Motocross World Championship Events: Part One

 

Of all the variations of motorcycling to have taken off since the automobiles invention at the turn of 20th century, motocross is undoubtedly one of the most popular. With an extremely devoted and worldwide following, the sport has risen from obscurity to become of the current leading automotive sports at present.

There was a time when motocross helmets would have looked completely out of place on a merchant’s shelf aside standard full face helmets or modular helmets, however nowadays they are a sure signal of one of motorcycling’s most renowned subsections.

In this spirit, let’s take a look at the approaching top motocross world championship events:

Ernee, France

Each June, the formidable motocross track at Ernee- northwest of the medieval city of Rennes, northern France is taken over by thousands of motocross enthusiasts eager to catch a glimpse at some of the world’s top riders. As with much of western Europe, its characteristically difficult to predict whether there will be a need for heavy duty riding jackets, or none at all- as the meet is as likely to blessed with sunshine as it is with torrential downpour. The closest approaching event of this year’s series- the Motocross World Championships France takes place on June 9th.

Maggiora, Italy

An event with a little more guarantee of excellent weather, the World Championships Italian leg takes place at Maggiora, northern alley. This semi-mountainous region lays within spitting distance of the Swiss border- in turn providing some of the continent’s most formidable competition terrain. With a combination of alpine and dirt stages, a trip to Maggiora on June 16th is certainly worthy of consideration.

Uddevalla, Sweden

The town of Uddevalla is nestled within the uncompromising and rugged countryside of western Sweden. This sparse and natural setting provides the perfect location for some of the world’s best motocross riders to compete with one another. An excellent event showcasing some of the original aesthetical values of motocross as a sport, Motocross World Championships Sweden is Scandinavia’s premier event of this kind and takes place on June 30th, 2013.

Kegums, Latvia

A beautiful though somewhat underappreciated Baltic nation, Latvia has become one of Europe’s most celebrated tourist spots in recent decades. With an abundance of craggy countryside supplemented by some of the continent’s most impressive coastline- Latvia is becoming an increasingly popular destination for holidaymakers who are on a budget though refuse to sacrifice any form of quality. The small town of Kegums lies around 30 miles southeast the nation’s capital- Riga, and is set to host this year’s Motocross World Championships, Latvia on July 7th.

Hyvinkaa, Finland

Yet another glorious Baltic Sea destination, Hyvinkaa in Finland offers an equal amount of immense wildlife and powerful motocross bikes this July. Taking place at the town of Hyvinkaa, a short drive in-land from Finland’s capital city of Helsinki- this year’s Motocross World Championships make the short journey over the channel from Latvia to arrive in Finland on July 14th. Though the height of summer, this is Finland- so I’d pack those saddlebags full of your warmest riding jackets, just in case.

Distinguished Gentlemans Ride

Today was the Distinguished Gentlemansride 
Twas a top day with lovely weather, very cool bikes , nice pleasant folk , and a very slow ride through towns and villages. 
The ride back was a little quicker . Nearly having a tankslapper , cresting a bridge whilst trying to burn off your mate in a suit. 
The only thought in my head was "I don't want to die in a suit. " 
Big grins though.

Sun was race day and for the first two races I did real shite. I felt like the front end was gunna levee me in the mud so meny times . So for race 3 I put some air in the front ( it was very low) and removed the thingy that quietend my exhaust an "hay presto " I did a lot better. 
The I made it through to the "b" final me and 4 others . 
I got the best start ever . Holeshot into turn 1 and every thing just clicked into place. Lap after lap I felt right comfortable, but a little scared that I may fuck it up. 
But I finished 1st . WAHOO first time I've won a race ( apart from my first DIRTQUAKE. ) 
I crossed the flag buzzin , round the next corner , big wheely then my sprocket tore off of the hub. 
What timing? 1st place and fucked bike.

It a dirty job but someone's gotta do it. ( I do care a lot)

I went to the Euro Jumble last weekend. I didn't think it was that great but I did buy this great TorCutter fairing. 
I'm not sure if I will be using it on the Duke as it's a bit big. But it is fuckin ace and only cost 35 earth pounds. 
But when I do fit it on something I'll be laying down a rubber road to freedom ...
I'm MOT ing the duke at the mo.
I'm gunna do the Distinguished Gentalmans Ride on it.  

Saw this fuckin ace motor at a village fair today 8inch piston an a right clever "hit an miss" inlet valve that only opened when the revs dropped real low just to keep it ticking over. 
Oh and there was ferret racing and terrier racing. That's a fuckin recipy for disaster if ever I heard of  one.
