2020 AMA Hillclimb Grand Championship Canceled Due To Coronavirus Restrictions

Valley Springs Motorcycle Club to host 2021 edition of amateur national championship

June 12, 2020

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE

PICKERINGTON, Ohio — Due to local health department restrictions related to the coronavirus pandemic, the 2020 AMA Hillclimb Grand Championship has been canceled. This year’s amateur national championship, organized by the Valley Springs Motorcycle Club, had been scheduled for Aug. 7-9 at the club’s grounds in Bay City, Wis.

The club will host the 2021 edition of the AMA Hillclimb Grand Championship on a date to be determined.

“Obviously, we are disappointed in the Pierce County Health Department’s decision to not allow the event to go forward, but the health and safety of the participants and spectators is of paramount importance,” AMA Track Racing Manager Ken Saillant said. “The AMA Hillclimb Grand Championship is the pinnacle of amateur hillclimb competition in the United States, and we look forward to having a stellar event at the Valley Springs Motorcycle Club next year.”

The club’s 500-foot-high hill was the site of AMA Hillclimb Grand Championships in 2012 and 2014.

Each year, the nation’s top amateur hillclimb racers compete at the grand championship event for AMA No. 1 plates, as well as vie for awards recognizing the AMA Hillclimb Racer of the Year, AMA Vet/Senior Hillclimb Racer of the Year and AMA Youth Hillclimb Racer of the Year.

As with most AMA amateur national championships, and in recognition of the range of participants in amateur competition, the event includes multiple competition classes to provide opportunities for amateur racers. Classes are based on rider age, engine displacement and motorcycle configuration.

FROM THE OUTDOOR RECREATION ROUNDTABLE

Businesses Urge U.S. Senate to Pass Great American Outdoors Act


More than 100 outdoor businesses, from Fortune 500 companies to mom and pop shops, including specialty retailers, gear and vehicle manufacturers, outfitters, campground and marina operators, and more sent a letter to Senate leadership urging swift passage of the Great American Outdoors Act to stimulate the outdoor recreation industry and provide safe and sustainable recreation access and infrastructure for generations to come.

The GAOA would provide a critical boost to what was, before the pandemic, a $778 billion a year industry supporting 5.2 million jobs and accounting for 2.2 percent of U.S. gross domestic product. According to the Outdoor Recreation Roundtable’s most recent member survey and dashboard of the sector, 94 percent of outdoor industry businesses have experienced a decrease in sales and 88 percent have laid off or furloughed a portion of their workforce. As these cross-sector companies show, investments in conservation and recreation are needed to provide business certainty so the outdoor recreation industry can get back to what it does best — grow jobs, support healthy communities, and provide more opportunities for everyone to benefit from time spent outside.

“Maintenance backlogs have led to deteriorated trails and facilities, preventing Americans, including our large community of motorized off-road vehicle users, from participating in healthful outdoor activities at a time when we need it most,” said Erik Pritchard, president and CEO of the Motorcycle Industry Council, Recreational Off-Highway Vehicle Association, and the Specialty Vehicle Institute of America. “The GAOA would ensure that access and infrastructure on public lands and waters are restored so that families and recreationists can enjoy the outdoors safely and close to home. This would also provide a much needed boost to local businesses that support these activities.”

“Our entire industry is behind this, from skiers to snowmobilers, hunters to hikers, campers to RVers, and climbers to motorcyclists,” said Jessica (Wahl) Turner, executive director of the Outdoor Recreation Roundtable. “Businesses have been making calls, running sign-on campaigns, and sending letters. This unity shows the amazing work that has been done to get us to where we are on this once-in-a-generation legislation. In the next week, Congress has the opportunity to do something that truly outlasts their time in office and that will benefit the nation for decades to come.”

Zach Osborne Displays Spectacular Performance

ZACH OSBORNE DISPLAYS SPECTACULAR RUNNER-UP PERFORMANCE AT SX ROUND 14
ROCKSTAR ENERGY HUSQVARNA FACTORY RACING’S MICHAEL MOSIMAN SECURES TOP 5 FINISH IN 250SX WEST
The 2020 AMA Supercross World Championship Series continues to roll on as Round 14 took place on Wednesday for the fourth time inside Rice-Eccles Stadium. Rockstar Energy Husqvarna Factory Racing’s Zach Osborne had a standout performance in the 450SX Main Event as he rallied his way to a second-place finish on the night. His teammate, Michael Mosiman, had a solid top-five finish in the 250SX class as the Western Regional division made its first appearance of the series in Salt Lake City.
 
450SX
Osborne shot off the line to capture the 450SX Heat 1 holeshot before settling into third early on the opening lap. He battled inside the top-five for the first half of the race before a mistake dropped him back to ultimately finish eighth. In the Main Event, Osborne had another great start as he positioned himself in third early on. Battling for a podium position, he vaulted himself into third about halfway through and he continued to push his way into second by lap 17. He rode a solid pace through the checkers to finish only five seconds back for second-place.
 

“I feel like we’re building some momentum here,” 
Osborne said. “I’ve been enjoying this Salt Lake trip and I feel like I’m in a good headspace, which is good. I managed two good starts tonight and was able to come away with my second podium of the stretch here. I really felt like I was in a good position tonight and we had a good result so I’m pretty happy with it.”
 
Anderson got a top-five start in 450SX Heat 1 and he battled his way into a podium position on the final lap, securing a third-place transfer into the Main Event. He got a good jump off the start in the Main Event but he got shuffled back where he rounded the opening lap in seventh. He began charging his way through the pack but he went down and dropped as far back as 14th in the early laps. He climbed his way back up to ultimately finish seventh in the race, where he now sits fourth overall in the 450SX Championship standings.
 

“I felt really good in my heat race, I was riding really good and ready for the Main Event,” 
Anderson said. “My start in the Main was actually a good start but I just got shuffled back and then I ended up falling. It wasn’t the best finish but I worked my way back up to seventh and I’m just looking ahead to the next round.” 
 
Dean Wilson, the fifth-place qualifier, grabbed a top-five start in 450SX Heat 2 and he battled inside the top-five for the first half of the race. He made his way into fourth by lap five and from there he finished strong in fourth. In the Main Event, Wilson didn’t get the most favorable start but he battled his way into the top-10 by lap five. He worked his way up to teammate Anderson, where the duo pushed each other through to the finish with Wilson taking eighth for the night.
 

“Qualifying was pretty good, it has been recently,” Wilson said. “In the Main, I had a really bad start and I just made slow passes – coming from 17th up to eighth. It’s not a great result but the good thing is we get to try again on Sunday. I just really need to work on my starts and I think we can be in the top five.”
 
250SX West
Michael Mosiman and the 250SX Western Regional division returned to racing with the seventh round of the championship and their first appearance in Salt Lake City. Mosiman qualified eighth overall, where he lined up in 250SX Heat 1. He got off to a third-place start and moved into second by the halfway point. With one lap to go, Mosiman went down attempting a pass for the lead but he quickly rebounded to salvage a second-place transfer. In the Main Event, he got started just inside the top-10 and immediately put his head down to begin charging through the field. He worked his way up to fifth, securing a solid top-five finish in the first race back.
 

“It’s good to be back to the races!” 
Mosiman said. “It’s a stacked class right now with everyone healthy and it was pretty hectic out there today. Fifth on the day, I’m a little bit disappointed in my riding but I’m stoked that we get to race again soon and I’m looking forward to the next round.”

INDIAN MOTORCYCLE & ROLAND SANDS  RACE-INSPIRED ACCESSORY COLLECTION

 

INDIAN MOTORCYCLE & ROLAND SANDS DESIGN DELIVER RACE-INSPIRED ACCESSORY COLLECTION FOR FTR 1200

 

Collaborative Lineup of FTR 1200 Parts Brings ‘Super Hooligan®’ Racing Inspiration to the Street

 MINNEAPOLIS (June 25, 2020)Indian Motorcycle, America’s First Motorcycle Company, unveiled a collaborative line of race-inspired accessories for FTR 1200 models, designed in partnership with Roland Sands Design® (RSD), the popular and innovative custom motorcycle, apparel and lifestyle brand.  The new FTR x Roland Sands Design collection enables riders to customize their FTR 1200 with RSD’s race-inspired elements to add both style and function.

The RSD collection for FTR 1200 is the latest collaborative offering from the two brands through a relationship that has spanned more than five years, highlighted most notably by the RSD Super Hooligan amateur racing series, presented by Indian Motorcycle. It was RSD’s experience of modifying the FTR 1200 for the Super Hooligan series that inspired this line of parts, bringing race styling and performance to city streets.

“FTR 1200 finds its roots and inspiration in flat track racing and RSD brought that full circle, modifying and racing the bikes in last year’s Super Hooligan series. This accessory line is a natural extension of that,” said Ross Clifford, Vice President of Parts, Garments, and Accessories at Indian Motorcycle. “The relationship with RSD has made sense from day one, considering we both share a commitment to finding and delivering the perfect combination of function and form, all fueled by a spirit of innovation.”

“The FTR 1200 is such a beautifully-styled stock motorcycle and we didn’t want to do anything radical.  Instead, we focused on creating elements that complement the bike’s refined, race-inspired aesthetic, while also offering subtle performance advantages,” said Roland Sands. “That’s what makes the FTR 1200 so great to customize – you don’t need to do a lot. A few tasteful and subtle cues can create something truly your own.”

The FTR x Roland Sands Design collection for FTR 1200 includes:

  • RSD FTR 1200 Tracker Wheelset

Featuring RSD’s signature black anodized paint, the RSD FTR 1200 wheelset is inspired by the three-time American Flat Track championship-winning race bike, the FTR750.

  • RSD Swing Arm Stand Spools

The black anodized, billet aluminum spools allow riders to easily keep their FTR 1200 upright in the garage or turn their daily driver to the weekend tracker.

  • RSD Brake and Shift Levers

Black anodized, forged aluminum brake and shift levers are direct replacements for stock controls and have a laser-etched finish and logo.

  • RSD Foot Pegs

Offering more surface area and more grip, the black anodized billet aluminum RSD foot pegs allow the rider to feel more connected to the FTR 1200. Stainless steel screws offer extra bite to keep the rider’s feet secure.

 RSD Frame Sliders

Keeping protection top of mind, on and off the track, the RSD Frame Sliders were developed to protect the FTR 1200 race bikes and minimize damage in the event of a crash or if the bike is tipped over, a commonplace in Super Hooligan racing.

 RSD Handguards

The forged aluminum handguards replace the FTR 1200 handlebar ends and offer additional protection.

 RSD Engine Cover, Brake Reservoir Covers & Handlebar Grips

The devil is in the detail with these parts as the billet aluminum RSD Engine Cover, RSD Brake Reservoir Covers, and rubber RSD Handlebar Grips offer subtle Indian Motorcycle and RSD logos to match the bike.

AMA Recognizes 2020 Monster Energy AMA Supercross Champions And Award Winners

June 24, 2020

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE

Tomac, Ferrandis, Sexton earn class titles; Davalos, Shimoda named rookies of the year
AMA recognizes 2020 Monster Energy AMA Supercross champions and award winners.

PICKERINGTON, Ohio — Monster Energy AMA Supercross, an FIM World Championship, presented AMA National No. 1 plates to Eli Tomac, Dylan Ferrandis and Chase Sexton this past weekend at Rice-Eccles Stadium in Salt Lake City.

Tomac captured his first premier class AMA 450SX championship, completing the 17-race season with 25 more points, 384 to 359, than the defending series champion, Red Bull KTM rider Cooper Webb. Tomac, the 27-year-old Monster Energy Kawasaki rider, won seven main events, and he finished on the podium in six of the seven races held in Utah.

Both the 250SX West and 250SX East titles also were decided in Salt Lake City. In the Western Region category, 26-year-old Frenchman Ferrandis earned his second consecutive title, this one by a 20-point margin over Justin Cooper.

Sexton, likewise, defended his AMA Supercross No. 1 plate, the 20-year-old Honda rider scoring 9 more points than Shane McElrath, who, like Ferrandis and Cooper, raced a Yamaha. The 250SX East final results, however, remain provisional due to a pending protest.

After the coronavirus pandemic interrupted AMA Supercross in early March, series promoter Feld Entertainment followed federal, state and local guidelines to restart competition in Utah with a two-race-per week, no-spectator format. Mitigation efforts during the series of events included prescreening, temperature checks, testing, face masks and physical distancing.

“The AMA extends its congratulations to the riders, teams and support staff, many of whom worked tirelessly behind the scenes to keep the AMA Supercross series on track and finish the season on a high note in Salt Lake City,” said AMA President and CEO Rob Dingman. “We are grateful for their vigilance in these challenging times.”

AMA Supercross Rookie of the Year awards are presented to first-year riders who accumulate the most points in their respective classes. KTM rider Martin Davalos is the 450SX AMA Rookie of the Year, and Honda rider Jo Shimoda is the 250SX AMA Rookie of the Year. Davalos ended the season 13th in 450SX points; Shimoda was third in 250SX West rankings.

“Both Martin and Jo showed increased consistency and confidence each time they took to the race track,” said AMA Supercross Manager Mike Pelletier. “I am proud to say the future of Supercross looks bright.”
