2012 AMA Supercross WallpaperJames “Bubba” Stewart earned his first podium of 2012 AMA Supercross, the Joe Gibbs Racing Yamaha YZ450F rider finishing third Saturday evening in Dodger Stadium, Los Angeles.
Before over 35,700 spectators Saturday, JGRMX’s Stewart got off the line quickly in the start of the race, but a crash involving Muscle Milk Honda’s Trey Canard and Villa Yamaha’s Ryan Morais caused a red flag.Upon the restart, a three-way battle began between hole-shot winner Jame Weimer (Monster Energy Kawasaki), Ryan Dungey (Red Bull KTM) and Stewart. The Yamaha rider Stewart had a small crash, but was able to regain momentum to finish third. Dungey would finish second, and Two-Two Motorsports Chad Reed would win the race.James Stewart (Joe Gibbs Racing Yamaha YZ450F Supercross) says: “We had a rough practice session but my starts were great so I have to give it up to the team. This result is a confidence builder for sure. I was ‘there’ and we’ll go for it [the win] next week for sure. I always try my best and always go hard out there. We’ll get better. I made one mistake and just couldn’t bring it back.”After three of 17 rounds, Stewart is in fifth in AMA Supercross Championship. The series moves to the O.com Stadium in Oakland this Saturday.Photos by Don Williams
Zero Electric ADV Bike + Al and Bridget from Throw Your Leg Over
byMotos and Friends by Ultimate Motorcycle
Hello everyone and welcome to Motos and Friends, a weekly Podcast brought to you by the editorial team at Ultimate Motorcycling. My name is Arthur Coldwells.
Electric mobility is everywhere nowadays. Whether it’s a car, a truck, an assisted bicycle, a scooter, or any number of new innovations, the electric revolution is certainly here. In this week’s first segment, Nic de Sena took a ride on Zero’s recently announced new Adventure bike—the Zero DSR-X. There’s been a lot of hype about this new arrival on the ADV scene, and of course the questions are many. Nic talks to me about whether Zero actually have a credible, alternative energy ADV bike—or if the machine is just simply an empty promise.
In our second segment, I chat with Al and Bridget from ‘Throw Your Leg Over’. They took time out to record this episode from somewhere in the middle of Romania, of all places.
These interesting Aussies have traveled—and painstakingly documented—the thousands of miles they’ve covered riding the best roads and sights through Australia, Tasmania, Europe, eastern Europe, and Scandinavia, among other places.
