1st Annual Pure MX Racer Warm-Up

Hosted by US Open Champion Greg Schnell & Doni Wanat

March 3rd, 4th & 5th

Pure MX Park, Montalba Texas

Concept: Pure MX will host the first ever racer warm up for Lake Whitney & Oak Hill. 3 days of racer preparation with overseen timed laps, organized sprint motos, pursuits, racer critique and advice. General practice sessions will be held each day with organized racer training running late morning to early afternoon. Rider advice & competition pointers will be discussed with each racer individually. Open discussion at the end of each day for parents and participants.

Merge racing will be on-site to help with suspension & overall bike set up. Some of the Merge Technologies racers will also be participating in the warm-up, including Honda Houston rider Jeremy Kress and Suzuki rider Jeremy Martin.

Goal: Our main objective is to provide racers with the ultimate training preparation for the big day(s). We feel that racing encompasses both the physical as well as the mental aspect of competition. By providing this type of racer training format, we hope to better prepare our young riders to effectively compete on any level.

Free over night camping with open track days before & after warm up.

About the track: Pure MX Park was formed in January of 2010 by former racer Doni Wanat. Doni has been on riding scene for sometime starting in the early 90’s racing Supercross & outdoors as a privateer. Most recently Doni has been the manager & rider on the Rockstar Hart & Huntington Supermoto team, where he finished in the top ten in points for the last 4 years. Now he is here in Texas, sharing his riding and mx industry experience, all while living the dream of owning a motocross training facility.

The track is 1 ½ miles long with 11 tabletops, whoop section, elevation changes and plenty of rough track for training. The terrain is sandy loam with a red clay base which has been very forgiving during this wet Texas winter. There are currently 8 RV water hookups (electrical coming soon), and a bike washing station. Jump faces are groomed daily. Palestine is under 15 minutes away with many hotels, restaurants, Walmart and Lowes. Lake Whitney is 90 minutes west of the track. Space is limited, so early sign up is encouraged.

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
