I recently linked up with the @motoconcepts@officialleatt Boys straight out of quarantine to get their thoughts on 2020 and what keeps them coming back to dirt bikes for more…First up is @justinhill46 🤘🏼
With the most recent talk in the Moto world that the 2020 Supercross series MIGHT kick back off again in late May, riders have started hitting the practice tracks in order to “knock the rust off” and get back to racing form before the gate re-drops on the 2020 season.
I made the 40 minute drive to the Honda test track in Corona CA on both Tuesday and Thursday to shoot with the SmarTop/Bullfrog Spas/Motoconcepts Honda Boys Vince Friese & Justin Hill for Leatt Protectives.
I also threw a GoPro on Malcolm Stewart, and put together a little something for his IG. Both Malcolm and his Brother James have ran GoPro’s for us at the races in the past so it was cool to “reunite” and “push his (GoPro) buttons” again.
Even when I am not the one riding I still enjoy being back at the track and around dirt bikes. It’s good to be “back” – JB
I’ll be heading to Atlanta tomorrow for round 9 of the 2020 Monster Energy Supercross Series to do my thing for GoPro and Leatt Protectives so let’s take another trip down memory lane with this video I put together 2 years ago from ATL SX with at the time, Leatt’s Cole Martinez.
This video really shows off the Privateer’s journey and what it takes for some of these guys to make it race to race. Enjoy.
This weekend in Tampa FL marks the opening round of the 250 East Division in the 2020 Monster Energy Supercross Series where Jordon Smith will be racing for the first time in 2020 aboard his newest ride with Monster Energy Pro Circuit Kawasaki and it reminded me of our shoot for GoPro & Troy Lee Designs Race Team we once did.
In late 2016 Jordon joined the Troy Lee Designs, RedBull, KTM Team, and with GoPro also being a big title sponsor, I was called up to do a video on the new recruit and his transition to the team.
Bummed he’s no longer on a GoPro Sponsored team but he’s in good hands and I am excited to see what he does on a PC bike this Saturday.
For now let’s take a trip down memory lane on this “Throwback Thursday”.
From GoPro Motosports YouTube:
Take a look at Jordon Smith’s race preparation for the 2017 Supercross season with his new ride on Troy Lee Designs.
In honor of the Monster Energy Supercross making its stop at Petco Park this Saturday for round #6 of the 2020 season, I decided it’s a good time to reshare this heart warming video I did 2 years ago for Leatt Protectives on KTM JR. Supercross Challenge Racer, Aidan Zingg.
Brings back a lot of memories that I have from racing with my own Pops!
