Les Smith

Ever since I was a kid, I've been a bit of a fanatic about motocross. So you can imagine how I felt the Saturday morning I woke up to a facebook message that said, "hey, would you be interested in putting together a video for Les Smith getting ready for the 2011 Supercross season"?

Yeah I was pumped. Big time! Chuck Shirley, owner of privateer connection put this whole thing together. So I must give a huge shout-out to Chuck.

So here it is... have a peek at the footage we got. Les really put on a show for me, even though he was focused on training.

Tom Kraft Profile Teaser

I once heard that to ride a motocross bike, all you had to do is hang on and twist the throttle. I was completely flabbergasted when I heard that but I didn't bother saying anything in return. I figured, what's the use - they obviously didn't have a clue on what they're talking about.

Anybody can get on it and "twist the throttle"... and it will definitely move forward with you. But if you want to be competitive, there are a few other things that you should be doing.

Check this teaser out of Tom Kraft
