Summer plans // TBT

Stoked I’ll be attending about half of the 2018 Lucas Oil Pro Motocross Series to create content for Leatt Protectives + make sure their athletes are well taken care of. So in the spirit of the great outdoors and Hangtown, here’s a pretty rad throwback featuring myself Via Motocross Action Magazines “Mid week report”: “Jarred Jet Browne epitomizes the struggle that so many privateers endure to climb the ladder of motocross success. A former top amateur rider, Jarred is on the comeback from a succession of injuires and he proved his talents at Glen Helen with an impressive 16th overall. In the first moto at round one, Jarred came from last place to 17th before running out of gas.He pushed his bike across the line to ultimately finish 26th. Between motos his mechanic Drew Collins (r) heated up his gas tank and beat some additional capacity into it with a 22mm wrench. Jarred rode well to finish 13th in moto two. For Hangtown, the normally seven hour drive turned into a two day ordeal when his truck broke down twice and had to be towed to a dealer each time. Jarred qualified 15th fastest, but his first moto ended early when he sucked a banner into his rear wheel. His 36/19 score gave him 22nd overall. Like many privateers at Hangtown, Jarred’s next big decision was whether or not to make the drive to round three in Texas for another shot at a good result. Through thick & thin, Jarred’s dad (l) is there to support him as much as possible. Motocross is truely a test of character and dedication.”

LEATT PROTECTIVES: IN THE MOMENT – Marvin Musquin // Salt Lake City Sx 2018

Things got a bit more interesting for the Premiere Class in the 2018 Monster Energy Supercross Series last weekend in Salt Lake City. Take a look into Leatt Athlete Marvin Musquin’s day as he captures the win and moves within 14 points of the series leader heading into the final today, in Las Vegas.

Leatt Protectives: In The Moment – Lorenzo Locurcio // Minneapolis

Stoked to have Lorenzo back at the races after getting injured a few weeks back in Tampa. Get “In The Moment” with him at the Minneapolis Supercross and see where his focus is moving forward.  Thanks for letting me pick your brain Lorenzo!

Leatt Protectives: In The Moment – Drayke Sizemore // St. Louis

Was stoked not only to recruit Drayke to the Leatt Family, but also to capture him making his first main event of his career for this addition of “In The Moment”.  On top of that the race was near his hometown and he had friends, family, and sponsors on hand to witness it.

Leatt Protectives: In The Moment – Cole Martinez // ATL

We’ve had a great time creating the ‘In The Moment” pieces this year during the 2018 Monster Energy Supercross series with Leatt Protectives and their Athletes. This was the funnest one to edit so far. Cole took our GoPro’s for a spin in between races to capture some BTS action of him training during the week and it’s always rad to see a little bit of how the athletes put in work. Unfortunately, Cole got hurt the following weekend, at round 10, in Daytona Beach Florida. Up to that point he was 4 for 4 in making the main events in the premiere class, since stepping up to the bigger bike in SX, for the first time in his career. As the cliche goes though, “what doesn’t kill you, makes you stronger”. Sending positive “vibes” your way Cole! Looking forward to seeing you come back even stronger than ever. – JB

Throwback to a year ago when I linked up with Alex Martin to get the inside scoop on his preparation for the 2017 East Coast Supercross season. Its amazing to see/hear how many hours of effort goes into these racing programs and though considered one of the toughest (if not THE toughest) sports on the planet, these guys still know how to have fun. – JB

 

Oakland Supercross was a doozy to say the least! You could tell It was one of those tracks where you had to be careful not to override it and possibly even “go slow to go fast.” Check out the GoPro POV from Seely, Cianciarulo, and Alex Martin to see exactly what I mean. – JB
