Watch: Team USA’s ISDE "Breaking" In the Rental

Several of America’s best enduro/cross country riders have made their way to Portugal for the 2019 FIM International Six Days Enduro (ISDE). Since riders are not allowed to practice or bicycle on the course to preview the course, Team USA decided to take a drive over to walk the course and get some bonding time in. Recently-crowned seven-time Grand National Cross Country (GNCC) National Champion Kailub Russell vlogged the crew’s first experience together as the team loads up and heads for the course.

Watch: AJ Catanzaro Goes All-In on Pastrana Tribute at RBSR

Over the weekend, the 2019 Red Bull Straight Rhythm took place at Fairplex in Pomona, California. This year’s event was two-stroke only again and the competitors took the replica/throwback vibe to another level. Red Bull KTM’s Cooper Webb road a Jeremy McGrath early 2000s KTM-inspired 250, Troy Lee Designs/Red Bull KTM’s Brandon Hartranft made his debut for the team in Evel Knievel themed gear, and recently retired Cole Seely’s CR250 bike build turned out to be a white Johnny O’Mara/Mugen Honda tribute, amongst many others. And then there’s AJ Catanzaro.

Red Bull Straight Rhythm Is Only Days Away

Earlier this week, Weege explained the costume party that will be the 2019 Red Bull Straight Rhythm, which will take place this weekend on October 5 at 8:30 p.m. ET. With the race being only a few days away, we’re getting more hints of what we might see come the head-to-head racing. Check out some more prep/bikes for the event.

Watch #TeamFried: Justin Cooper Has Arrived

Monster Energy/Star Racing Yamaha's Justin Cooper has officially joined his Team USA teammates to begin their group training. While Zach Osborne and Jason Anderson came overseas earlier this month to train in the European sand, Cooper stayed in the States to train at different California tracks before joining the Rockstar Energy Husqvarna teammates earlier this week.

Watch: Marshawn Lynch On the 2020 Husqvarna

Earlier this year we witnessed the start of a beautiful friendship between Dean Wilson and NFL running back Marshawn “Beast Mode” Lynch. Then, this summer we witnessed Wilson and Lynch geared up (yes, Marshawn was in moto gear, not his tinted Oakland Raiders helmet) in California and I wrote: “WHERE ARE THE VIDEOS? We NEED them!” It may have taken three months, but, typical Deano, he gave the people what they wanted.

Oh, the Places You'll Go (on Your Electric Bike)!

Since retiring from racing competitively in Monster Energy AMA Supercross, Josh Hill has become one of the more prominent names in the industry to go all-in on the electric bike scene. Hill, who first retired in 2015 before becoming a fill-in at the end of the 2018 Monster Energy AMA Supercross championship, has been posting videos of him ripping his Alta Motors electric bike(s) at places ranging from the hills of California to skate/BMX parks to basically anywhere he could find a spot to throw down a couple big whips, a stoppie, or a huge transfer (which have also included police officers in them as well). Recently, Hill teased of a video that would include him riding said electric bike at an abandoned water park.

Dean Wilson Has A New Training Partner. Spoiler: It’s Marshawn “Beast Mode” Lynch

Dean Wilson hasn’t raced in the 2019 Lucas Oil AMA Pro Motocross Championship yet, due to injuries he suffered near the end of Monster Energy AMA Supercross in April. But Deano has kept us up to speed on his progress. He recently shared an Instagram post stating that he had gotten on the bike again, although he isn’t fully ready to race yet. Yesterday morning he posted a picture from Fox Raceway at Pala, on his bike. But his post had nothing to do in terms of updating us on when he’ll be racing again and honestly, I'm totally okay with that.

No, KTMs Do NOT Run While Submerged In Water—Jonny Walker Found Out The Hard Way

During the World Enduro Super Series in Lagares, Portugal, this past weekend, KTM’s Jonny Walker was gaining on Husqvarna’s Billy Bolt. Running in fourth, Walker tried different lines here and there, zigging when Bolt was zagging, as he tried to make his way around his competitor through the tight corners, steep stairways and everything else. Watching highlights from this series from the helmet cameras causes me stress by the way because these guys are absolutely nuts (but then again, aren’t all dirt bikers?).
