Nasty Marty Crash

Team Tedder/Monster Energy/Lucas Oil/KTM Racing (yes, it’s a mouthful) Martin Davalos released footage on his Instagram account of a gnarly crash he suffered at the opening round in Houston on Saturday.

According to Davalos, he had already committed to the quad when Malcolm Stewart jumped on to the table, so he “jumped a little more left than I desired.” Luckily he’s ok and will race tonight.

Greatest Bike Build Ever

Hands down, this is the coolest bike build I’ve ever seen.

According to Revzilla, the builder, Nick Hagman, spent 500 hours—yes 500—spread out over the course of 365 days documenting this 1993 KX250 engine rebuild with more than 10,000 photos. Go read the entire story on Nick, it’s pretty amazing, and please, watch this video. It’s fantastic.
