Exhaust #70: Of Nations and Europe (with Lewis Phillips of MXVice)

EWhat was the atmosphere and the attitude really like for teams and riders at this year’s FIM Monster Energy Motocross of Nations? Jason Weigandt chats with Lewis Phillips of MXVice to talk Assen, GP gossip, the European fans’ view of Team USA, and more. Lewis is one who firmly believes Team USA has to attend the Nations each year to make it what it is, and whenever the team loses, he’s afraid they won’t come back! So who pays for it and what makes this event make sense? Weigandt and Phillips try to figure out (and solve) the world’s problems. The Racer X Exhaust podcast is presented by Yoshimura.

Exhaust #69: Current Currency (with Cobra's Sean Hilbert)

EThere are multiple prongs to building an electric motocross infrastructure. Building the bikes and getting riders to try them is just a start—and Cobra and KTM have taken that step by introducing race-ready electric minicycles that will be available shortly. But what about the racing rules? Why should riders want to try these bikes in the first place? Cobra Moto president Sean Hilbert joins Jason Weigandt to talk about the process behind the scenes that will make electric make sense. The Racer X Exhaust Podcast is presented by Yoshimura.

Exhaust #68: An Invention to Save The Sport (with Stacyc's Ryan Ragland)

ERyan Ragland was once a racer, then a mechanic and R&D man at KTM. But he was completely and totally out of the industry by the time he accidentally invented a way to save it. Ragland, an engineer by trade and at heart, just wanted to share his love of motorcycles with his son, so he crudely grafted a cordless drill motor, RC car batteries, and a chain drive onto a balance bike. When the rest of his neighborhood saw his invention, they soon wanted one too. Thus, prototypes were built, and a company and brand—Stacyc (for stability cycle)—were born. With youth interest in motorcycling fading, the industry has been waiting for a jolt like this, so much so that Harley-Davidson decided to buy the Stacyc brand outright. But Ragland is still there, turning his dream of getting one young kid riding into a dream scenario for an entire industry. In this episode of the Racer X Exhaust Podcast, Ragland chats with Jason Weigandt to share the story of sharing the joy of riding. The Racer X Exha...

Exhaust #67: Upstart Flat Track Points Leader Briar Bauman

EThree years ago, Briar Bauman wasn't on the list of would-be champions in American Flat Track—in fact, he was just trying to scrape together purse money to make it to the races. That's all Bauman needed, because his first love is simply being at the track and hanging with his flat track family (including girlfriend Shayna Texter, a Red Bull KTM contender in the Singles class). Then Briar started to put results on the board. He picked up a factory Indian ride this year and skyrocketed right to the top of the charts. With two races remaining in 2019, he holds a big points lead in the Twins division. That should add a lot of pressure, but he's stayed true to his old model: having fun with his friends at the racetrack is priority number one, and the rest comes easy. In this podcast, Jason Weigandt chats with Bauman about handling the points lead, the stumbles on his march to the top, and his relationship with current AFT Champion Jared Mees, who has gone from friend and mentor to title...
