The other cool thing is this ranking system and i found out at the bottom but there's basically a ten tia ranking system starting from a squid which i am unfortunately rookie weekend warrior amateur c.

"Really nice to say was only young guys who apart of pilots. Academy. Who Road at that jam. showed up, they rode well and they rode Saif and that would have been so damn hard for those young guys to do. It would have been so role for them, and of course, paying their tribute to Tomas at the same time SAR. Yeah that was that was definitely a tough one and again my thoughts with his family and friends. All, right. So moving onto more freestyle motocross news. and. I was going to release this actually a little while ago but then Kinda got stuck doing a coupla things and I thought I'd wait for more news but it was the fight club The jarred McNeil was hosting at his house I. Don't know if it was jared's idea to have fight TV the. Bought the event was held at his house which he promoted the hell out of and it went down last month and it looked absolutely awesome. There's plenty of knowledge to come out of it but actually, it was tall a men who took the win and this is huge. He won at Jared McNeil's House that's pretty crazy. Jared has spent countless hours in his cat machines to build one of the best looking setups for someone home compound and I spend more time actually on botching his instagram stories of just him pushing dirt around and actually just on that check added new video. He just released this week that he did with Caterpillar and building a full on. With all the different types of equipment it was waiting, and if they condense that down into one minute thirty, he probably could have also been a contender for real mode as well. But anyway, the fly sorry fight club was a really cool concept with the quarter pot best whip and step up and doing it all from a backyard obviously, that needs to be a hell of a production around that to run this fully from somebody's backyard. So check out fight DOT TV. And you can still watch the replay now but with names like jared McNeil Call Barat Cold Sealy Tom Parsons and Derek bickering. It was no easy feat photographer baron to take the win there. Some crazy news Danny Torres. One of the biggest legends in freestyle motocross has undergone knee replacement surgery after threes of operations he's finally had to make the huge decision to put in the metalwork. Danny has competed more than any other rebel fighters events than anybody else with he eight starts he's been in the most head to head matchups with Ronnie Max favorite number of sixty nine match outs. He's had the most head to head wins a forty one, the most quarter final and the most semifinal appearances, and he's had the most top three appearances at twenty events of rebel x Fahd. He's also had the most world to our top three appearances of seven and earn the most points in the entire series of two, thousand, three, hundred, forty points, and was, of course, the world to champion in two thousand and eleven. So this is a huge decision for Danny as this is the decision on. Of grappling with similarly from my hip. To get the replacement as well. Do you continued dealing with shit or do you just go and? Get, the operation dawn and hopefully just feel better. And it appears after threes. Of, Danny trying to deal with these nee problems and having so many operations in getting back on the bike and then another operation. They've had to go with no other choice than to chop out the old knee joint and replace it with some steel I. Don't know if the. Playing on his. Career just yet because. I was told with my hip once I. Go the full replacement having any talk of crash that kind of metalwork. Could. Destroy the bit of barring the toiling in the prosthetic. That's damaged. There's an even bigger problem, but I we didn't get into freestyle because thought of medical problems that could arise. We'll do it because we love writing freestyle. So head on over to Danny's page wish him all the best and hopefully will same back in action in some capacity very soon. So I've got some more news coming back to Jack are strong and he's got more double flips on a brand new ram. I mean we started the whole thing with ex gang zero motorway. I did the double backflip off of a dirt jump. Just, Lon Jacko he's always in the shed coming out with something else and he's designed brand new. Super Kika which seems to get the job done just right and also blooded out the dimension. So it's three made high five meters long with a five meter radius sounds pretty simple. I remember when Free Amex published the first ever nine meterologist ramp dimensions which were used for seventy, five, eight, hundred, twenty, three meters and whatever you WANNA call it. And I. Think it was in about two thousand one or two and I went straight to the shed with the magazine sitting on the well. It was just permanently on that to to paid spread about the ramp. And are pulled down as much of Dad's forty, forty rhs steel and I just thought of welding up the frame didn't have a rawling machine. So our member actually putting a peg in the ground with a non made pace of ripe and I just scratched into the dirt and nine meter radius I went and got my eight meet long piece of rhs thought bending it around anything we had around the house and around the shed. Benton around fence post broke Coppell, and anything else that was just laying the funnily enough..
The Racing Family that Death Couldnt Stop
"Welcome back everyone to pass gas As always. I'm your host, Nolan Sykes joined by my friends. One Joe Weber. What's up? And I'm sorry, I'm trying I'm trying to bring the energy, but this is also a very somber script already, and so I want to be entertaining Bhai also want to. Honor respectful. Done that. Be Entertaining, but respectful. And James. Humphrey. You hear him talking now. To, two. The river. All right anyway. gas. So today's are two part our second part of our story on the Isle of Man. T T we're talking about the Dunlop family, are you guys ready to get into it I? Am I think I just want to point out I. Think you're man is the one of the six nicknames I've ever? That's a great and I said well good. It's so it means it means you're a nice guy. It. Yet. It's a rare nickname that sounds really cool. But it also means you're Nice Kylie. Guy that the go-to guy whenever anything needs to be done. Man He's your man. Love it. Great. Start to great episode. Let's dive into it when Marjorie and Ian Forest and their twin teenage sons moved to their house on Douglas Road on the isle. Of Man. One. Of the things they look forward to was the opportunity to watch the legendary I'll of man tourist trophy races from their front yard after all, it's not every day that you can watch the best road racers in the world. Take a corner, your corner in front of your house at speeds of over one hundred, twenty miles an hour. Unfortunately, the forest family had no idea what they were in for on a practice day in two, thousand five, they heard a crash outside Yawkey Carlson, a Swedish racer had run into their gate and flipped into their garden. The Swede was severely injured. Medics rushed to the scene, but there was nothing they could do Carlson's name joined the two, hundred, fifty plus other men who had died on the t course. The horror didn't end there though officials told the forest family that was to logistically challenging to delay the practice and move Carlson's body instead who Carlson was zipped into a body bag on the Front Garden for ninety minutes as the road marshals waited for practice to end, all the garrisons could do was closed their curtains and forbid their sons from looking outside. We'll I got. Doubts pretty awful. there's no way around it. Motorcycle racing is dangerous. Even riding a motorcycle daily traffic puts you at risk of dying in a crash twenty, nine times higher than that. If you were in a car at the same time, motorcycle riders and racers understand that danger. In fact, it's part of what draws them to the sport. Unfortunately, there's no real way around risking your life unlike cars where technology has greatly improved safety and driver protection motorcycle crashes, you're basically experiencing the equivalent of a no seatbelt through the windshield accident every single time. And as dangerous as motorcycle racing is the Isle of. Man. T he stands out as a full degree of magnitude more dangerous than the rest. First of all public road courses like the Isle of Man were writers have to contend with what they call the furniture. That's sick. They're talking about telephone poles, ditches, garden walls. These are much more dangerous than closed circuit courses or dirt bike riding and racing. While those races do see fatal accidents there hasn't been a deadly crash in a speedway race since twenty sixteen and in the twenty years before that, there is an average of less than one year similarly motocross raced at much lower speeds also sees lower fatalities unlike public road races. These courses are designed with plenty of room to minimize danger to the writers. So if Motorcycle Race Games skydiving public road courses are like base. Base jumping in a wing suit taken an already dangerous activity and bringing it as close to the edge as possible. However, even among public road races, the Isle of Man is easily the most dangerous in the twenty seven years. The T T was part of the World Grand Prix, championship thirty, six racers died on the isle. Of Man. Obviously. More than one year. In comparison at Imatra, there were two fatalities in sixteen years at Hockenheim, three deaths in twenty six years. The second deadliest race after the man was a circuit day SPA francorchamps which. Baby Franker Jam Cams, which saw ten deaths in thirty five years making the Isle of Man and average four times deadlier than even the second most deadly race.
"motocross" Discussed on Jim Beaver's Project Action
"Takes its own momentum, and before you know it, you're like eight races, you've been gone for eight weekends in a row and. Think of it. Like you. WanNa be Wanna be doing anything else. Well. Gosh I got so many questions here, I kinda WanNa with this. Let's go back to the beginning because I got a bunch of questions on this year and Johnny Campbell. Obviously, we got this. Land, pit by challenge to talk about this kind of go back to start because I. Think you know obviously I think a lot of people close to motocross understand your background and things like that. But let's go back to your childhood I. WanNa go all the way back to Puerto. Rico. And you growing up and and things like that. I mean, obviously, you know we know your. Your parents had surf shop. You know you were like crazy good surfer. What was the draw to motorcycles because a lot of people with that upgrade bringing obviously would have went to the water I. Know you're brother's been, you know a solid surfer, his you know and things like that. Like what was the drought dirt bikes? What got you out of the water and into the dirt? I was actually like kind of like I obviously growing up surfing the first thing I really learned to do I was in the water since I was a baby but it was really hard in Puerto. Rico. To be a kid 'cause nobody gave kids, waves are respected them and then being a girl in that community as well as like a double whammy forgetting ways always seem to be struggling. So I really took other sports. I, played a lot of team sports and really into baseball at the time. Actually I was playing like boys, Little League Baseball. and. We'd still like do a bunch of stuff. You know we're always playing in the streets always writing by schools. One of my friend, my brother's friends go kart and we would like pool on skateboards behind the go kart around the neighborhood. So I really wanted a go-cart just anything like motorized. My parents told me I was GONNA get run over by a car. So they opted for motorcycle instead and A. A still when I was like playing year round baseball but. I kinda just got over the team sport dynamic of always giving one hundred percent and I didn't feel like my teammates were and I was kinda getting discouraged. So the motorcycle thing Kinda just fit in because there's something I could do. I wasn't like limiting my ability do not getting the opportunities which and surfing I wasn't getting the waves to be able to serve as much as I wanted to and I just kind of took to the motorcycle. My Dad picked it up again, he's the ride when he was younger around the the sand dunes and the beaches in Florida. So he got really into it and that's kind of. All Its history after that I guess. How's the? How's the transition from riding and Racing Puerto Rico to come stateside? Because I. Know You've been on record saying it was it was a little bit different shakeup because you were very well accepted over there. You come over here and then it was all immediately like well, pump. The brakes is this girl and like you know she's a girl what you know we can't have. Have this happening and I mean, how is that transition because I know and then you came in and you won the resin that immediately put you on the map anybody in motocross coming up through the ranks you WANNA. Win It Loretta. But how is that transition from Puerto Rico here to the US because I? Know you've said it was Whoa, it was black and white difference. Yeah it was pretty wild 'cause in Puerto Rico, the only girl riding motorcycles at the time. So but I'd grown up doing all my sports as being the only girl doing it and it was never anything my parents discourage I. didn't see anything weird because I was like I don't know I want to play baseball. There's no girls baseball. So I'm playing with the boys I WANNA ride motorcycles. There's no girls class because I'm the only one on the island racing. You know that's a girl. So when I went up to the states, it was like whoa girls class like I can raise. You're just girls that's cool and then I ended up doing pretty well, I went to the mini O's for the first time. 'cause it was a pretty popular race for a lot of people from Puerto Rico to. And ended up doing pretty decent because it was very similar to the tracks we had in Puerto Rico like got gator back. It's hard packed clay, pretty big jumps, which I never had a problem jumping. Because I never had somebody telling me Oh girls, you know. Girls don't do that because I was raised in the boys I had to do it kind of thing and Yeah, from there was just like, oh. Maybe we should do more of this racing in the states. I can actually do pretty well against the girls and I was enjoying the opportunity to race against girls for a change. So but racing like the national, then you go like the amateur nationals and you get like three lots of practice and all of a sudden you're racing that was a big change for me 'cause. In Puerto Rico we had like four tracks across the island and we would have a race every month. So for the three weeks leading up to that race, everybody was at track practicing. So you get hundreds of Watson before you ever raced this. So the whole three laps. I I ever saw a track was pretty I, opening and just just being at a race for a week and doing all that kind of stuff was Definitely took some time to get used to and Eventually. Once I graduated high school moved up to Florida and live with my grandmother full-time and was really able to start working on everything and get a lot more use to racing like that. Yeah. Well, Kinda you know I know obviously you came in, you know and and things did motorcross the nation's that really kind of helped push on the map as well, and then in two thousand, eight x games rolls around and they you know invite women to compete I mean how big was that for you and and women's motorcross at the time you right out of the box you one. But you know I. Think you know women's motocross was growing, growing growing, and then all of a sudden boom, you get that stage with ESPN and X. Games that had been huge for for no you in the sport. Yeah. It was really big deal for me because I grew up with Action Sports with Skating and surfing and although sports or like a huge part of my upbringing. So. X. Games is always something that I look forward to watching every summer, but never did I think I participate in a sport can make it. You know and be on that stage. So when we got invited, it was like, Whoa, this is insane like something was never on my radar is a dream. Came a dream come. True. So it was pretty cool and then. To get that win right off the bat. Pretty special because I never got another gold and all the years I raced it. But. definitely had a lot of memorable battles between supercross. then. Enduro across as well. So it took me some pretty crazy places when they had a global x and we got to go to Germany Spain and Brazil So yeah, that was. That was an amazing experience. Amazing Event to be part of. What how has it been like in your career are too because they X. Games kinda helps tell the story a little bit. But you know obviously, you know you grew up motocross supercross things like that. Then all of a sudden, you know what? I mean, you know with X. Games you're switching and you're doing things like endure across. Now, we're getting into today where you're doing a lot of off road racing and things like that. But how how is that been? Do you feel like it's been pretty progressive like?.

"One for fifteen percent discount. You're listening to the down and dirty radio show powered by Polaris Razor. Whole killer and no filler. workum back to the general tire down thirty radio powered by POLARIS RAISE JIM Bieber. Christley owner. Here we are midway through our power rankings was scheduled for one segment and as usual Chris and I got to talking and we moved onto. Two segments. So you're segment number two, I believe her exactly smack DAB. Halfway Chris has given his top three or his bottom three. That sounds bad on power rankings like if you make the list, it's actually get. To the bottom three that just doesn't sound right but Chris got his first three and I've gone through my first two. So I guess it's time for me to roll into my number two and I've got like I said, this is an interesting week lack of lack of motor sports going on. But there are people maybe not actually racing. They've done things have stood out and I know I just had. The. Opening part of the show we had an amazing interview with with with Tara Geiger and tied in with Travis Pastrana greatest female motorcycle racers of all time and you know and she was on to kind of promote Travis Pastrana's nitro circus hit by challenge, which is going to be absolutely insane watch that August fifteenth as it airs on TV but You know all that being said I went you know a lot of people have struggled during this whole pandemic race car drivers. You know there's no racing going on what do I do this and that the one guy? The one guy there's been multiple but the guy that stood out the most to me that has been active and created content gone out and done things I mean he built a pit bike tracks place and then they film it and then throw it on TV. You Know Travis Pastrana, he's been active in I racing. He's been active doing just about anything Travis Pastrana can do at his compound he has done, and now I gotta give him a lot of credit. You know as a lot of people have failed floundered and not you know lived up to expectations of sponsors and partners trump's Pastrana man he's been in home runs and grand. Slam skirts and for that reason. I mean who's creating new TV during the pandemic nobody but Travis Pastrana we got teepee. He's on my list there at number three just because. You know it's it's actually funny. So I've been I've been the Admin, the race control on all these Elsie Q. League things Elsie q league was even an offshoot of the IRA racing rallycross. all-star invitational that we did in the spring that would not have happened. Anywhere near the way. that it did without Travis. When we initially drew that up I tell you and I was talking about this last night I initially drew that thing up six teams with like two pro gamers in one pro race driver and then you know super motorsports USA came calling and said Yeah we're in and Travis came said, yeah we're in I'm in. You know then the next day I get a I get an email from travis with. Chad Reed Alexander Rossi James Hinchcliffe a couple of other guys who didn't actually end up making it and he said, yeah, these guys are all into do it and I'm like. We're cooking with gas now aren't we? You know it's without without the efforts. The Travis had putting that series together You know it wouldn't of looked anything like what it eventually did you know but Elsie q league Kinda grow grew out of that offshoot because you know as you can imagine with a rally crossfield where only ten guys make the final and nearly thirty cars are entry of big names end up on the sidelines and a lot of the best real world racers were guys who were regularly fighting in those elsie cues. So they said Hell with it. You know. And you know. There was a lot of. That was just kind of A. Racing. But we WANNA do some fun stuff on our own and keep the damage off. You know. Obviously. That league. I I'm I'm like the least important person on this fifteen person group text of like the I joke that on the sixteenth portent person on the Fifteenth Person Group text and. Actually at one point, we found out about this pit by challenge in Travis had. had been willing to invite people and I. Think a couple of drivers that ran Elsie q league may have showed up i. think they raced but I think they showed up. So that was really cool. It's cool to see you know just how tight a lot of these guys have become or renewed friendships over the pandemic and you know certainly being privy to that in some way being drafted in you know to help. Them take you know make the most of I racing has been awesome. But all that's just the long winded way of saying I have been waiting to find out who on that pit bike challenge for months now and I cannot wait to that. There's GonNa be so cool I will be in Vegas Torino but you can bet your ass I'm going to have the DVR set. For that one. So that takes us through number three, hundred list. So we got our top two on the week Chris I gotta I gotTa think our top two as crazies are bottom three were I think our top two are going to be eerily close. I'm just kind of waiting to see who you have slotted where who do you have a number two on your list Chris. Well, I am going to go to new. Hampshire and I am GonNa put the driver of the to in spot number two Brad Keselowski not only did he take the win for team penske but also managed to renew his contract for another year it's only a one year extension which I'm sure is Kinda. Not what he was going for, but it has been interesting at the very least to listen to Brad sorta discussed the economics of NASCAR free. Agency right. Now, and Nascar certainly is in an interesting position. You just added team you know, Bob Levin just sold off his team after the end of the season and honestly the way that they've talked about it Kinda does cast out as to whether or not. They're actually going to finish the season out to me. You know the way that it sounds, but you know brad has been very vocal kind of on the driving standards of the cup. Series a little bit Drivers needing to may be held to a higher level I I. Agree with him on that I'm not a hundred percent sure that. It's affected. It head affected his position in free agency. The way that he kind of made it sound like I really don't think there are paid drivers that were ever competing for the flagship car of team penske certainly. You know I can see it a you know affecting the economics of the sport is a whole but you know I to me did read is a little bit of a non sequitur but regardless winning does cure everything in. We saw that as he goes to victory lane and literally the next day, there's a contract extension that could signed sealed delivered. So you know big important victory for Brad Keselowski believe it's his third of the season. You know. Obviously A threat for his second championship this year no doubt. He's definitely one of the top runners and it's interesting. You had number two because I had a tossup between my top two and I think we ended up probably making the same decision for the same reasons. But I was Lasky at number two on my list and you know he's been dominant all season. We've got a couple of guys Denny Hamlin another one you know that's been just dominant but took his lasky definitely in a there's three guys share that really separated themselves from the rest of the field in my opinion and. He's eased right in the mix that was his third win of the season. It was pretty dominant hundred, eighty, four laps. He led out.

"She's got really really good and You know it's just something I enjoy and you know I'm thirty nine years old turned forty in December and you know what? Actively ride my bike as much as I possibly can skateboard as much as I possibly can, and I think it's funny you when I was a kid if like you saw data in his forties riding a BMX biker skateboard you by guys we are now commonplace and all of us that grew up through the eighties and through that era of the you know the and started skating and BMX riding. We're going to talk about rollerbladers. Kazaric. But you know what? I mean like I feel like it's just a part of the same thing video games you know. Twenty years ago you didn't see adults playing video games. Now it's very commonplace. Everybody I know still plays video games. You know it's just. It's just a part of life and something he does that we've grown up with and we've brought with us, and now we do with our kids and it's actually kind of unique and I know Cool things that just happened recently was my favorite movie of all time. I'm not saying Sports Movie Action Sports Movie. No might legit favorite movie of all time is the movie Rad from the Eighties I had the. A kid burn that thing through. This movie that's gone into hibernation for like thirty years and You get these pirate copies from like Bangladesh you know these DVD's or burned and things like that on Ebay and the only way to get a copy the movie and the one time of popped up on Youtube got pulled down they just re released it in four K. and I mean this is probably one of the. Such a cult following and got some big name actors in there. But I would say this is probably one of the greatest action sports films all time, but it's actually a movie and you know that just got re released and so I feel like you know getting these new out I actually just last week ordered a new. Tony Hawk deck, he's got a new kind of retro throwback and. I got kind of got the skateboard collection going and and the thing is like some of I ride and some of them never never get never get gripped or anything and just Kinda hang him here in the studio and I know right now I got this Santa Cruz. Garbage pail kids deck. It was a blind back deal they did and it was like seventy five bucks for blind bag couple years ago and they have like nine different variants and you pull it out. You never know what you're GONNA get one of the I think one of the most rare ones all holographic and everything else. I. Got that in the studio never unwrapped it. So it's like I do skateboard but you collect to you but. I don't know I feel like we're seeing this renaissance of Action, sports? From the eighties and people like myself that are really getting back into it heavy and still skating still being maxine in these movies are being released skateboards. Now, this whole retro series thing become a huge deal same of BMX bikes man they're doing retro bikes from the eighties and the they're so goofy looking it's funny but. It's just fun and and I. Think it's you know it's great for these companies because now we've got disposable income that we can buy the stuff whereas your kid we didn't send our buying the stuff we always wanted as a kid and never could get, and now we got money and it's like Yep take my money eh so. It's been been kind of fun and Buck. You ask, yeah check it out. Go to his instagram. And check it out. It's It's just. Just. Amazing. These two decks is just amazing That's all there is to it. So yeah, it's it's good stuff but you know I guess we should talk a little bit about Vegas to Reno that's coming up one of the big ones indy five hundred and it was announced that they are no longer. Having fan that was a big big blow to the motorsports community. I know Roger Penske said it was one of the toughest decisions of his career. He originally had planned. They were able to twenty five percent capacity, which is about seventy five thousand people said, the five hundred deserves to be run in front of fans and then all of a sudden. You know they just legitimately didn't think was safe can do it. So fans out at the five hundred, it's going to be weird no fans running. In August either TV ratings are going to be the highest they've ever been in history or TV ratings are GonNa be in the toilet I don't know I'm going to be tuned in, but it's going to be interesting to see see what happens there I don't know I just And you know isn't any five hundred win in Indy Five, hundred win or are people going to look at this one go wasn't quite as much. I think it's still been classified as man I mean the ones that happened during the champ car era when they were, they were rivals still count as wins right I don't know it's just a weird mood around the indy five hundred this year. That's kind of my thing. But maybe just to do like a live chat during the five hundred as on twitter something like that we'll. We'll figure out something fun. For you listeners Sema show scrapped this one I think we all knew what's coming. Nobody wants to go and standing convention center shoulder to shoulder with two hundred thousand people. That I had you know they kept saying seem as ago is going on my I don't see how any possible way sema is a go this year and Yeah Rug got pulled out from under it. They still say, PR is ago but she's the mini version a sima geared towards racing same organization. It's an Indian set of Vegas. I. Don't know as easiest way to put it I. Don't know how they're going to pull that one off either but they say it's still go. So who knows maybe it's A. So. Yeah. So all that's going on but Vegas Torino's happening. We know the bow thousand now officially happening, they got a contract in place I. Think the ball five hundred is going to be scrapped. Know. So we've got that to look forward to racing Baja News. we've got to crandon races. We got an e r x race next weekend's the Midwest short courses on fire, and then we've also got. Vegas Torino next weekend, and almost four hundred entries, and it's the WHO's who of. UTV Racing Trophy Truck I. Know it's called Trick. Hazard but stacked injury list I mean, you know you got Robby Gordon. BRYCE MENZIES BG Baldwin you name it just about every single person is there GonNa be Competing Vegas Torino. Think. It's going to be insane I mean and this is a different track. That's what's Great. So a lot of the scores coming over who haven't necessarily done Vegas Green on a couple of years they aren't going to be at a huge disadvantage because the track is different this year different starting place we haven't ever started in are we gonNA valued I know. So running a little bit of the terrible sound to fifty course. And then. Yeah up through baby and you know it's just the wind it differently it's five hundred and fifteen miles but a lot of zigzagging Os's out and it's more of a straight shot but. It's it's going to be interesting this year for Vegas to Reno Just because you know you've got a different track and you've got a stacked field, I mean, every single class, you get the premier. Drivers Utd. The score guys coming over there acing. Trophy trucks, score guys they're coming over there acing I mean, this is the you know five hundred didn't happen in June I mean it's the only major desert race. We may have obviously thousands going on they've got permits and everything else. You know at the end of the day that's still could be cold. We what happened with Indy five hundred you know we've seen NHRA races that are. Getting scrapped in indycar getting scrapped and things could change in Mexico and that could be cancelled. So I think drivers right now are like, Hey, we want we want to raise as many ways as possible. We're going to get him in because we can't bank on anything happening later in the year sponsor obligations everything else. So it's like let's race and that's what we're seeing it Vegas to Reno. Sixty one hundred fields stack class tin class, one top to bottom. It is just an insane insane entry list and I am definitely definitely looking forward to get behind the wheel map razor got racer magazine Mafia coming into race with me obviously my good friend Steve Arpan, you know him from the rallycross world he's coming into race. So it's It's going to be a definite definite good big event for us and for the community as a whole. So yeah, we. Looking forward to that one, we're got to take.

"Everybody kind of psyched on my program. Well, how did that how that conversation do start with Johnny I mean I and how's that been for you because I know Johnny Pretty well, and I can have a conversation with him and I just feel like I walk away being a smarter racecar driver just her and he just uses information and he doesn't even realize it. He's one of those guys like around you always have your ears open because you never quite know what you're going to pick. Up. And learn. But how did that conversation started I? Mean you know it how's it been because I mean you go to to me, I mean I put him up on my Mount Rushmore of professional motorcycle racers in history like he's that good. You know I was that been for you just around in that atmosphere you know it actually like we've been working together our relationship goes back quite a ways I'd say 'cause like I was telling you in. Two thousand twelve on the. Toilet Designs Honda. Team and then thirteen fourteen did K.. Tim little support just for enduro across and everything like that. But going into fifteen wanted to get back on a Honda and doing girl across that way at that time they had and hey, ker on their team. JC. I Racing Colin Hake arriving for them. So actually take up a couple of Honda's from American Honda and I was just kind of picking the ear of their mechanic Eric Sears in at the time I went up to their shopping Marietta there and Basically. It was just asking him you know what's the setup for and girl across? Shawny came in. He's like how about we just race bikes for you and You know if we have products, you mean, you're welcome to them or That's kind of how relationship was all I'd say up until last year was kind of like he knew that I had my own sponsors that you know I get paid from and My deal was going to workout better kind of doing on my own but they were there to help me and at the Andros races like Eric was you know all the help I needed he was helping me there too so. It kind of went like that for a few years and. Coming into last year I was like you know Johnny been so much help I kinda just WanNa be fully on program. If that's cool with you run your sponsors let's win the championship. Because I was going for the National Grand Prix, championship Ama number one play, and I was like, let's just go for this together and he was like one hundred percent. Let's do it and that's kind of how it up on the team officially. But he's been helping me out for like the last five years I think. As it. Has that generated any kind of its at some point? You did the mint and they ran out a little bit different format to but to jump into some of the longer distance boss stuff and things like that that Johnny's been so successful within the past no, I don't think. I WANNA. Do that so like I come from track racing background like I like to know where I'm going and like the Grand Prix are very much. You know it's a long off road race but for the most it's. Kinda what's coming up and the Hare and hounds are a little bit different but. I really liked the more technical side of the Herron Hat. Um, not so much the fast like why don't desert so I'm pretty sure I wouldn't really enjoy the the long. Rally style or Baja style stuff i. tell you what I watched old helicopter footage of Johnny down in Baja racing the thousand in going like one hundred and thirty miles an hour down the beach and things like that and I look at that. I'm just like this guy's nuts like I mean he is so ridiculously like it's like artwork watching him it's so graceful. It's like a guy dancing on a motorcycle. That helicopter footage and you just like man this is like he's such another planet good back in his back in his prime. Yeah like nuts. Yeah. So I look at you had to be. Yeah. You had to be pretty precise on those bikes he was riding to. Stay while that, even on the machine he was on. And heavy bikes man those extra six fifty's and stuff like that was just where rowdy but. Shifting gears say I want to go back a couple of things obviously kind of come into present day here in a minute but I wanna I wanNA go back because I've had this had a similar conversation with Joe Lean and I wanted to and she's always tip the cap to you and said well Tara was I actually want to go back to House like circa decade ago and talk about back flipping because. Joe Lean says you're the first person first female to ever backflip a dirt bike? Obviously she did it on the big bike but take us through that because I. Know there was a travis at what invited a few. A few female motocross riders out to try this right and you're the only one day I actually kinda stopped one on the smaller bike. How did that all work because I know there's some funny videos and nitrous circus plays every once in a while on Youtube and things like that of the whole process. But kind of takes us back to their and how did that whole Conversation Start It was actually when I was on I believe I was on the team. Yamaha team with Sarah Whitmore at the time. So we were traveling around the country with our dads are campers and It was that steel city and Travis came up from Maryland to hang out for the day with sitting around because they're good friends I, go back a long time and. he kind of. Met Him for the first time ever So that would have been you know beginning of September Steel City when the final round of a national Ama nationals and uh yes weeks later, I had flown back to Puerto Rico and Travis calls me up. He's like, I, WanNa fly you up to Maryland and I want you in Sarah to go head to head in a backflip dual see who can learn a backflip I and you know I'm just this from Puerto Rico that races women's motocross and Travis Pastrana calling the up to go backflips at his house and Hughes obviously that was when foam pits renew so he was like one of the only people phone kit. And you know he was pioneering the backflip and getting a ton of people learn. So of course, they said, yes and we get up there and he has all these ways we're GONNA, learn it plan like. I, we started into a pool which I turned out was not really helpful. He just WANNA in. Bikinis? Apart was pretty funny but So we're trying gators in the pool off his diving and then BACKFLIP in a by school and the small phone cat, and then finally going into the big foam pit on the mini bikes to then go to big bikes. But when I got on the big bike this is one of the things in footage of I didn't get flipped it all off the little like quarter pipe against the. Foam pit. And when I came down, they said just don't ever let go the bike because in the bikes gonNA can land on. You saw held on bikes but the handlebars came through my helmet and hit me in the face and gave me like a huge bloody nose. So that was like me buried in the foam pit while fueled pouring on me with a bloody nose and Travis Shelvin a camera in my face asking me how I felt and what went wrong and I was like I. Don't know. But gas is pouring on me in the blood and right now please just stopped filming. At that point he thought that he was all over and done but I can't up the next morning I was like well, I got a good on the. The little bike. So I WANNA at least land that dirt and pretty much just set up the ramp that I'm gonNA use a foam pit and set up the distance and I, did it like five times I'll just go and set up the ramp to dirt I'm not GonNa look at it 'cause doing backflips like ninety percent. Then you just got to remind yourself just keep looking back and Like the bike going to come around. So had them just set it up and I just came around like make sure the cameras are filming. You're GONNA come around and do it, and that's pretty much what I did Then he like wanted me to come back to do it on big bikes and everything, and at this point, he hadn't met Joe Lean through Sarah. And Also Jones brother Billy and he wanted me to come back but I was like you know headstrong focused on racing.

"Than that it was just me on my own figuring stuff out and pretty much moved to California's practice Colton Hager's place, and just kinda learning every time I got on the track but it was brutal. It was a lot of crashing a lot of taking my bike up and. I got a couple couple of medals that year though so. still to this day I never really figured it out I felt like the last X. as we did in Austin I raised head to head with lions for that gold medal and that was probably the best I've ever raced enduro cross so Kinda, my pinnacle for that discipline. and you know got the battle head to head and go back and forth. Why sense is one of the most amazing off road motorcycle racers. In the world. Yeah. Well, talking about why I mean obviously, you know you guys I remember that battle in she's just a phenomenal world class talent I, mean, you see what she's been able to do in like the Dakar Rally now obviously you've got your ties with Johnny Campbell I mean been ever been that issue in the back of your head like you know what I'd like to maybe at some point going try dot Gov or something no definitely not like. Like lions fans powers over. She's big human too and She definitely got the talent and the size to handle giant rally by but that's just that's crazy salaries thing and I giving you know props her because she just Kinda. Did it because she wanted to do it and she's made a huge career out of just taking that chance to try it so. you know Kudos to her and she's an amazing enduro racers. Well, it's had the chance to race a couple six days against her and she's phenomenal but. For myself and I never had any. Desire to go try to write a rally and you know stare towards sand dunes for hundreds and hundreds of miles right? Especially on a bike, you know it's like you know and I've had this conversation with toby price you know on the show and tell me and I were talking and it's like it's one of those like everybody respects the you know the guys that go out there and cars and and and you know and finish up front but I told him on Mike, There's something about a bike I mean you know driving a car for three or four thousand miles you make a mistake and? You might blow a tire. You might have a problem something like that. You know unless it's catastrophic but on a bike for that long Tara Geez, it's like one small hiccup and you're done by it's over on a bike like that's so hard to keep that much focus for that many days like two weeks straight like I. Don't know it's just insane to me that you know what I mean that you know what? What the motorcycle riders doc are able to accomplish. Yeah it just it's so mental to at FRY's your brain like you're saying in the car you can almost. Drift off because if you hit a whole with one wheel, you still got three wheels that didn't hit it. So you know you probably stay pretty stable but yeah if you hit that one weird on I, mean I've read out at Glamis and Dumont dunes before there's so many holes you just don't even see and just from the experience of racing three international sixteen goes on the bike for you know eight eight hours eight and a half hours a day. You just start seeing stuff when you're locked in bat long like you get some crazy tunnel vision and Going that fast through terrain you've never seen. I would not want to do that. So, talking about all this and obviously, we'll get into talking about this year and some of these, some of that but I to kind of you know you become one of the faces of Of of you know women's professional motorcycle racing and how's it been because I mean obviously, you talked about women's motocross series kind of folding up obviously somehow someway you've been able to stitch a career together. You know what I mean. You've had to shift and be really fluid with what you competed in and things like that. But I mean, you know it's it's brutally tough on on guys to make a career racing motorcycles but I gotta think it's been doubly toughest. You know on you I. Mean You know how? To manage that because I feel like you've just been very fluid and obviously you've got tons of talent but it's like you've been able to shift gears at the right point in time and kind of switched disciplines and and make changes and surround yourself with the right people Definitely I think I really couldn't have done it and you know Red Bull wasn't sticking behind me. As long as they've had you know I signed with them in January of two thousand six and rowing on like fifteen years of being together. You know it's an incredible company that's supported me in all those transitions which is amazing on their part and Yeah. That's kind of my goal. Oh how can we make you know sponsors happy and keep them stoked and You know I definitely think of taking advantage of the social media side of how sports are going in the sense that red bull it's kind of been. Okay. With me dabbling and different things as long as I'm out there racing and promoting the company well fed a lot of other great companies jump on board and got the chance to work with Johnny Campbell and j racing the last. Couple of years and Yeah. It's just been an amazing run and I've just had this guy or to keep racing wanted you know call it quits yet and finding these new disciplines is keeping it motive motivating and fresh, and we've got to take a short commercial break but we'll be back with more tar geiger when we return here to the General Tire Donald Radio show powered by Polaris Razor Jim, beaver Irish, trophy trucks professionally hosted down and dirty radio show, and also travel the country announcing motorsports events.

"For more information. Please visit us at GSP. X T DOT COM today. You're listening to the down and dirty radio show powered by Polaris Razor. Killer and no filler. Welcome back to the general tire down and dirty radio show powered by Polaris, razor with Dr Geiger on the show. So Tara, how's the transition from riding and racing and Puerto Rico to come stateside because I know you've kind of been on record same man it was it was a little bit different shakeup because you're very well accepted over there. You come over here and then it was all a media like well pump the brakes who's girl and like. You know she's a girl what you know. We can't have this happening and I mean how how is that transition because I know and then you came in and you won the red as you know that immediately put you on the map anybody motocross coming up through the ranks you want to win it Loretta is but how is that transition from Puerto Rico here to the US because I know you've it was wo it was like black and white difference? Yeah. It was pretty wild 'cause in Puerto Rico was the only girl riding motorcycles at the time. So but I'd grown up doing all my sports as being like the only girl doing it and it was never anything my parents discourage I didn't see anything weird in it because I was like I don't know want to play baseball there's no girls baseball. So I'm playing with the boys. I WANNA ride motorcycles. There's no girls class because I'm the only one on the island racing. Girl. So when I, went up to the states, it was like whoa girls class like I can raise just girls that's cool and then ended up doing pretty well, I went to mini O's for the first time because it was a pretty popular race for a lot of people from. Puerto. Rico to go to. And ended up doing pretty decent because it was very similar to the tracks we had in Puerto Rico. Got gator back. It's hard packed clay pretty big jump switch. I never had a problem jumping because I never had somebody telling me Oh girls you know. Girls don't do that. 'cause I was raised in the boys, but I had to do it kind of thing and Yeah from there. Just like Oh maybe we should do more of this racing in the states 'cause I can actually do pretty well against the girls and I was enjoying the opportunity to racing's girls for change so but racing like the national then you go like amateur nationals and you get like three lots of practice and all of a sudden you're racing that was a big change for me 'cause. In Puerto Rico four tracks across the island and we would have a race every month. So for the three weeks leading up to that race, everybody was at that track practicing. So you'd get hundreds of laps in before you ever raced this. So the whole three laps. First Time. You ever saw track was pretty eye opening and just just being at a race for a week and doing all that kind of stuff was definitely took some time to get used to and Eventually once I graduate high school I moved up to Florida and live with my grandmother full-time and was really able to to start working on everything and get a lot more use to racing like that. Well and kind of you know I know obviously you came in and and things did motocross the nation's that really kind of help push on the map as well, and then insert two thousand, eight x games rolls around and they invite women to compete I mean how big was that for you and and women's Motocross at the time because you you know right out of the box you one but you know I, think you know women's motocross was growing growing growing, and then all of a sudden boom you get that centerstage with ESPN. And X. Games that had have been huge for for no you and the sport. Yeah. It was really big deal for me because I grew up with Action Sports with Skating and surfing and although sports are like a huge part of my upbringing. So. X. Games is always something that I look forward to watching every summer but never I think I, participate in sport that I can make it. You know and be on that stage. So when we got invited, it was like Whoa this is insane like something was never on my radar is a dream. They came a dream come. True. So it was pretty cool and then. To get that win right off the bat was pretty special because I never got another gold and all the years. I raised it but. definitely had a lot of memorable battles between Super Cross and. then enduro across as well. So it took me some pretty crazy places when they had a global x and we got to go to Germany Spain Brazil So yeah, that was was an amazing experience. Amazing Event, to be a part of. What how has it been like in your career? Are Arctic because I X. Games kind of helps tell the story a little bit but you know obviously, you know you grew up motocross supercross things like that. Then all the sudden you know what I mean you know with X. Games you're switching and you're doing things like enduro cross now are you know getting into today where you're doing a lot of off road racing and things like that but how is that been? Do you feel like it's been pretty progressive like know just naturally is kind of. kind of I don't want to switch disciplines. We're kind of shifted gears and your focus and things like that or or was it really rough because I know talking with Joe Lean she said man switch endure across was brutal on her she's like I still have never figured it out and you talk to travel tragedy goes hell without you WanNa try you know but you've been really successful with it. How was that shift from Racing Moto supercross to into. Endure across. Yeah. That was for sure one of the most difficult transitions I think I've ever made but it wasn't like I I totally wanted to do it. It was just kind of. All the cards, the debt coming up thrown in the air and the cards fell they did that global x happened in two thousand thirteen at the same time and exports was pretty much getting rid of women's motocross and they went down to a three race like a three round series. So at that time, you know it wasn't I was on Troy Designs Honda and it wasn't going to be worth it to them to put in work for three rounds. You know when their whole race team races twenty nine races between supercross motocross. So That same year two, thousand, thirteen I got the opportunity to go because I had won a silver medal I think it was that X. Games in two thousand, twelve in the first event of enduro across that they had. So because of that, I got invited to Global X.. So. I kind of embraced a like a huge opportunity huge change and got a chance to get some support from K. Tim, which you know they're they're the top off road team at the time. So I'm getting a little support from them and You know kind of having four big rounds of racing for the year with global x Kinda. Just seemed like the thing the better option than three. You know rounds in a motocross series that they seem to be wanting to get rid of anyway. but that whole year was a huge learning curve for me because I did all my own. got a couple of bikes from him, but other.

"Once like we moved up to Bend Oregon about three and a half years ago and between me, and my husband does does the nitro circus live shows? We've all were always in and out or scrambling and get ready for the next trip. So it's been a pretty nice is being at home and actually doing all the things that bent has offered, which you know brought up there in the first place. So. We did a lot of camping in the spring and we bought A. A Little Honda pit bike and we're just making like really fun Centrex out by the campsite and just we did that for like a month and. I finally got a chance to go up to Idaho and check out Gold Creek and do some writing up there was able to link up with cody web for one of his little events up there and basically just enjoying some downtime really and kind of filling in with all the the do in the future list that we had so for the most part. Yeah. It's just been kind of staying home and Lincoln up with friends here. That are also stuck. A lot of people weren't working so. we're fortunate that in bend. We have so many outdoor spaces that we were able to get out and get a lot of writing in a lot of mountain biking in. and. Just. Kinda. Hang with friends that way out kind of out social distancing as they like to say now but still out doing this stuff we love to do. And I'm looking I'm Kinda the same way out Roy Arizona here in Parker and it's like, yeah, we've got all this space and things. Like people in the metro areas and stuff they were hit really hard like we were still on the razors we're out in the water we were we were doing a lot of things we normally did you know and and try, and obviously like you said, be safe and things like that. But I gotta say like sometimes people that live I don't WanNa say off the grid but out of the Metro areas a bit I think some of us. I guess, we benefited I. Don't WanNa say benefited from this, but it allowed us to still continue to do what we normally would do to an extent you know. Yeah totally it was. Very nice, 'cause. Normally I miss a lot of the good riding weather at home 'cause traveling to southern California, or you know other west coast locations racing and stuff and The. Dirt in the spring. Here is amazing and there's a lot of really fun SANTRAC. We have so also able to ride a lot near home I didn't really slow down, take a month on racing stops in terms of writing and You realize how much of your life if you're not traveling and racing the stuff, we do pretty social distance in a sense. You know we're riding with our helmets on and. It's easy to stop you know good ways away your buddy and chat about something on the trail or Whatever it may be but I think one of the craziest changes was that I cooked at home for like. Two and a half months like all the restaurants were closed do any takeout Grocery shopping and actually having food in the fridge but once was nice. So did you get an addiction to cooking where you're like what? Are you now like hell it out I don't care if I ever cook again or was it one of those like I actually enjoy this I, kind of found a hobby that I like. no, I wouldn't say it was a hobby. I liked. Figured out. We had a good routine and. Like I knew what I had to buy at the grocery store not made it easy so Yeah. But it was like you know we did the full quarantine, the six weeks that they wanted us to do, and then even a bit more. So we yeah yeah, we didn't. I don't think I went out to eat for like, yeah. It would be at least eight weeks. You your here's a question. I've kind of been like in this internal struggle now, right because now I'm getting ready to go back racing here in a week and we've got ut world championships after that, we got a bunch of events coming up and Cran and I've got all these places to go and I'm starting to starting to see things and I'm like man. I've kind of being torn because I went from being on the road like thirty some weekends a year to all of a sudden this year like like you being at home in like, wow, I'm at home. This is what my four walls look like and so it's like one of those are i. kind of liked it a little bit but I still really really miss going up all the events and racing. So I feel like, are you one of those kind of like me? We're moving forward Instead of being on the road thirtysomething weekends and maybe we can make it twenty something weekends next year and like spend a little bit more home time and a little bit more. I don't know I'm kind of being torn like I. I kinda like a little of both worlds now you know. Yeah definitely I think I'm just like a creature of habit to if I get in a routine like right now I'm kind of a routine of being home, but the minute I get on the routine of being on the road like. You know it's like it's hard to break. That takes a little off like used to being home for weekends on end. But then once you're there, you don't have to think about too much. You're just Kinda like rolling with it, but it's the same when you get on the road race and you just kind of roll with it and it just kinda takes its own momentum and before you know it, you're like eight races you've been gone for eight weekends in a row and but you couldn't think of. Like you WanNa be doing anything else. What Gosh, I got so many questions here. So I kind of want to with this, let's kind of go back to the beginning because I got a bunch of questions on this year and Johnny Campbell and obviously we got this Strana land pit by challenge to talk about this kind of go back to the start because I think you know. Obviously, I think a lot of people close to motocross understand your. Background and things like that. But let's go back to your child. I WANNA go all the way back to Puerto. Rico and you growing up and things like that. I mean obviously, you know we know your parents had surf shop. You know you were like crazy good surfer. What was the draw to motorcycles? Oh, because a lot of people without up green bringing obviously would have went to the water you're brother's been. A solid surfer his you know and things like that like wh- what was the draw dirt bikes what got you out of the water and into the dirt Actually like kind of like I obviously growing up surfing I was the first thing I really learned to do in the water since I was a baby but it was really hard in Puerto Rico to be a kid 'cause nobody gave kids waves or respected them, and then being a girl in that community as well like a double whammy forgetting waves I always seem to be struggling. So I really took the other sports I played a lot of team sports and I was really into baseball at the time. Actually I was playing like boys Little League Baseball.

One of my friend my brother's friends had a go kart and we would like pool on skateboards behind the go around the neighborhood. So I really wanted to go kart just anything like motorized. My parents told me I was going to get run over by a car so they opted for a motorcycle instead and A. I was still when I was like playing year round baseball but. I kinda just got over the team sport dynamic of always giving one hundred percent and I didn't really feel like my teammates were and I was kinda getting discouraged. So the motorcycle thing Kinda just fit in because there was something I could do. I wasn't like limiting my ability to do it by not getting the opportunities which and surfing I wasn't getting the waves to be able to surf as much as I wanted to and I just kind of took to the motorcycle. My Dad picked it up again he's the ride when he was younger around the sand dunes and the beaches in Florida. So he got really into it and that's kind of.
