Nate Ramsey, Malcom Stewart, Mike McDade, Blake Young, Ricky Dietrich, Ken Roczen
Advance, North Carolina (January 15, 2013) - Top talent and industry insiders from the motorcycle world give their uncut opinions and stories.
Nate Ramsey, Team Manager - JDR Motorsports
Originally from Tennessee, Nate raced professionally from the early nineties through 2009. He enjoyed much success throughout his career including factory rides, multiple wins and podium finishes, and even a West Coast 125cc Championship. Today he is Team Manager of the Australian based team JDR Motorsports with riders; Malcom Stewart, Joey Savatgy, Josh Cachia, and Chase Bell.
Malcom Stewart, 250SX West Coast- JDR Motorsports
This year Malcom returns to JDR Motorsports to compete on the West Coast. At the opening round in Anaheim he finished a solid fifth and showed everyone he's been putting the time in during the off-season. At Phoenix his luck wasn't as good and he landed a disappointing 18th place to put him 12th in points. The series heads back to California this week for the second race at Angels Stadium. Last year he raced the Supercross East Coast series and finished 10th and 11th in the Lucas Oil Pro Motocross Championships (Outdoors).
Mike McDade, Arenacross - Mosites Motorsports
McDade has come into the AMSOIL Arenacross season on a completely privateer effort and definitely under anyone's radar as a main event winner. What's even more impressive is he also works a 40-50 hour week on top of racing. Even though he's had to ride some LCQ`s, he's scored some main event wins and sits 2nd in points behind Tyler Bowers. So far they've raced in Worcester, MA and Baltimore, MD. This weekend AMSOIL Arenacross heads to Grand Rapids, MI.
Blake Young, AMA Pro Superbike
Blake has finished the past two seasons in AMA Pro Racing in second place. In 2012 he had three wins and 17 top five finishes. He is a fan favorite and has the speed to be a champion yet he has no ride for 2013. He recently tested with Geoff May and the EBR team in Florida but there is no news on whether the test resulted in a ride. In 2011 Blake won seven races in the AMA Pro Superbike class and was only off the podium for two races.
Ricky Dietrich, Supercross - Motosport.com/ADR Racing
Ricky is riding with the Motosport.com team and doing his best to make the main. He struggled with a head cold this past race which made it challenging to do his best. Ricky has had his share of successes outside the SX world with a 2006 WORCS Championship, he as also the 2008 AMA Racing Athlete of the year and he led Team USA to a Bronze Medal in the ISDE races.
Ken Roczen, 250SX West Coast- Red Bull KTM
It's probably not a surprise to anyone that Roczen has been battling for wins in the 250SX class already. At both rounds so far this season he's finished 2nd behind returning champ Eli Tomac and he sits just 6 points behind. He's enjoyed heat wins and it seems his turn to take a main event win could come at any time. He'll be looking for his first win in 2013 at A2 this Saturday night. Over the summer he raced helped Germany win their first Chamberlain Trophy at the Motocross of Nations in 66 years.
