The Rockstar Energy/H&H team has started off the AMA Supermoto 2008 season strong. The team consists of Steve Drew, Travis Marks and Doni Wanat competing in the Unlimited class and Tony Hart competing in the 250 lite class. Carey Hart and Doni Wanat will also ride selected rounds of the 450 Premier Supermoto class.

"The whole weekend we were riding great. We knew that we had a shot at the podium and a potential win after the promoters practice on Saturday, with fast lap times posted by our riders" stated Kenny Watson, the team manager. With the potential, the team was more than ready for the opening round.

Steve Drew, lived up to the time posted in practice and promptly won his heat race and the main event, leading all laps except one, which was lead by Travis Marks, the teams other Unlimited rider contending for the title this year. Steve's performance netted the teams first win in the series and he is now consider to be one of the top candidates to win the championship. Travis Marks was poised to make it a double podium for the team until a flat tire took him out of contention. Doni Wanat finished the main event in seventh after struggling with equipment difficulties all weekend.

In the 450 Premier class Doni Wanat represented the team with an 11th place finish in a rain shortened main event. Tony Hart started strong in the 250 class by posting fast times in the qualifier but a first lap incident with another rider crashing in front of Hart ended his evening early.

As part of the weekend racing, the next day brought out the local racers and the pros for a promoter race event. Steve Drew and Doni Wanat promptly finished first and second in the Open Pro and Doni Wanat won the 450 race. One of the team’s mechanics, Chad Gieb, won his first ever Supermoto race in one of the amateur classes.


The Rockstar Energy/H&H team will be competing next at X Games on August 1 - 2 at the Home Depot Center in Carson, California. The XTRM/AMA Supermoto Series continues at the New England Supermoto Classic in Hartford, Connecticut on August 9, 2008.

The DYU King 750 Fat Tire Electric Bike Is a Lot Of Bike For the Money

You can't beat the planted feeling you get aboard a fat tire ebike. It feels like you could hop off the saddle and walk away and the bike would remain standing. Good shock dampening, great grip on the road, more tire to eat up ruts and curbs.  The DYU King 750 electric bike  is a fat tire ebike that stands out for its good looks and very reasonable price tag.  28 MPH top speeds means this bike can get up hills and maintain speed with ease and I can think of 5 ebikes on the market right now that have similar features and style and sell for nearly $4,000 and you'll pay shipping.  Perhaps best of all is DYU offers a 14 day test ride policy and if you don't like what you get you can send the bike back.   

Hardware: Supermoto Wheels Explained

Supermoto wheels are a big investment, when you factor that your 2-3 year old dirt bike may have a resale value in dirt form in the $4-5K range, if that. We get calls from guys all the time who say "well, I'm not really racing or nothing, so I'm just looking for the cheapest wheels you have to convert to Supermoto". Well, the real reply there is that there really isn't a cheap way to get into Supermoto unless you're going to go Sportsman about it and ride on knobbies or some type of dual-sport tire. Quality 17-inch supermoto wheels that will last are going to set you back between $800 and $2000 depending on how deep you're going to go at this and whether you want quality and performance or just a good price. Motostrano is a full scale supermoto specialist and we've been involved in Supermoto since it's re-birth in the United States in 2002. We offer complete supermoto wheels made from the finest materials and built by experience wheel builders

Riding the Moustache Samedi 27 2X Tandem Electric Bike

I love riding with my partner and riding by tandem is one of my favorite ways to get around on a Sunday. Touring by tandem is literally twice as fun as riding solo,when you are on a bike with the one you love and the one that loves you. But tandem bikes are rare and excellent electric tandem bikes are even rarer, so I wanted to give you a fresh impression of our ride yesterday on the 2018 MOUSTACHE Samedi 27 X2 tandem . Moustache is a French company, making some of the most innovative ebikes in the world. Their tandem is no exception. This bike comes in two build types, either a smooth tire touring type or a knobby tire off-road type, but the frames, motors and other specs are pretty much the same.  I've ridden tandems for the past few years on road and off road. Yesterday we did a Meet-Up ride with other fellow ebikers in the Sonoma area. Naturally we were the only tandem riders, with others riding solo on their Haibikes, KTM, Giant, Felt and Blix bikes. Out and
