2013 RedBud AMA Motocross National VideoMonster Energy Kawasaki’s Ryan Villopoto extended his lead in the 2013 AMA Motocross series following his fourth sweep of a round this season.
His latest arrived Saturday at round seven of 12 at the RedBud National in Buchanan, Mich. During the round, Villopoto was able to fend off charges from the man who finished second in both motos, Yoshimura Suzuki’s James Stewart. With his RedBud wins, Villopoto now has 11 moto wins in seven rounds.But it was the misfortunes of Red Bull KTM’s Ryan Dungey that allowed Villopoto to further extend his lead. The KTM SX-F 450 pilot suffered some technical problems in moto 1, finishing 34th. Dungey took third in moto 2, giving him 11th overall. Due to this, Villopoto now has 333 points, and his 42 head of Dungey.In the 250 class, Red Bull KTM’s Ken Roczen battled with GEICO Honda’s Eli Tomac for the win, each rider taking a win and runner-up. But Roczen took the overall victory, and currently leads Tomac by a mere seven points.Attached below are video highlights of 2013 RedBud AMA Motocross.

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.
