2011 Daytona SportBike Video
There’s no doubt that Jason DiSalvo will be a main competitor this year in AMA Daytona Sportbike.
The Latus Motors Ducati 848 rider has already won the Daytona 200, and set the fastest lap time around Miller Motorsports Park on Day 2 of the officicial AMA Pro Racing test at the Salt Lake City circuit earlier this week.
2011 AMA Supercross
With only nine points separating the top four riders heading into the penultimate round of the 2011 AMA Supercross Championship, the racing was expected to be intense.
And intense is exactly how to describe Salt Lake Supercross, which was held in Rice Eccles Stadium before 39,329 fans Saturday evening.
Western Supercross Lites
The Seattle round of Supercross, two weeks ago, marked the resumption of the Supercross Lites Western Regional Championship.

2011 AMA Supercross
GEICO Honda riders Kevin Windham and Eli Tomac arrive at Rice-Eccles Stadium for this weekend’s AMA Supercross event with well defined objectives.
For the 33-year-old Windham, a 17-year veteran competing in the Supercross category, Salt Lake City represents a chance to defend his last event title.
Although the 2009 Monster Energy AMA Supercross, an FIM World Championship, season went down as arguably the greatest season in history, the fact of the matter is that it was the undercard for the 2010 season. AMA Supercross icons James Stewart and Chad Reed took their bitter rivalry down to the final laps of the 2009 season to declare a champion. As Stewart walked away with the title, Reed simply went back to work harder than he’s ever worked before, saying he has a lot more racing left in him.
The fact that the 2010 Monster Energy Supercross Series revs up on Saturday is exciting all on its own. However, if you mix in a good old fashioned rivalry like the one between Chad Reed and reigning champion, James Stewart, the anticipation of a thrilling season is palpable.

SBK Road Racing Event
The three main (televised) motorcycle road race series available in this country all produce excellent, close racing at various times, but most aficionados would tend to agree that the World Superbike series–based around highly modified production motorcycles–usually produces the closest, most competitive racing. The first major motorcycle series to adopt the spec tire concept around 5 years ago (using Pirelli Diablo tires) and thus eliminating arguably the biggest variable in motorsport, the playing field has been very effectively leveled.
