2013 AMA Pro Motorcycle-Superstore.com SuperSport Race 2 ResultsFor the second time is as many days, a rider from Colombia won the AMA Pro Motorcycle-Superstore.com SuperSport race at Daytona International Speedway.
Tomas Puerta led six of 10 laps aboard his RoadRace Factory Racing Yamaha on Saturday to join countryman Stefano Masa as Daytona winners this weekend.Tomas Puerta (RoadRace Factory Racing Yamaha YZF-R6 SuperSport) says: “I was trying to think about being in the lead on the last lap of the chicane. I changed my mind with two laps to go. On the last lap I just put my head down and didn’t care where everyone was at in the draft.“I saw I had a little bit of a gap going through the horseshoe, and I just kept charging from there.”Puerta made that lead hold up to the finish and increased the gap to a final margin of 1.03 seconds over second-place Charles Weaver and his Napa Auto Yamaha and 1.133 seconds over third-place Cory Alexander and his National Guard Suzuki.Tomas Puerta says: “Everyone on the team is more confident than last year, I’m hoping we can get a lot of wins this year.”Weaver said his bike was working very well in the draft all race long.Charles Weaver (Napa Auto Yamaha YZF-R6 SuperSport) says: “It was kind of unexpected. I was OK in warmup, but had a little spill and went into the grass. We gridded 13th and I just kept making my way forward.“Second-to-last lap I finally caught the lead group and drafted past most of them to get to second.”The race was briefly red-flagged early on when a rider went off the track, which Alexander said worked to his advantage.Cory Alexander (National Guard Suzuki GSX-R600 SuperSport) says: “After the second start my bike was running great. I made my way up from 11th, so I’m really pumped to be on the podium after a rough start to the weekend. I’m really happy.”
Zero Electric ADV Bike + Al and Bridget from Throw Your Leg Over

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.
