I enjoyed the sunset on the drive home from Gainesville last night and I marveled at the Harvest moon, bringing revelation – a lot about this weekend. It was the first round of the Gold Cup Series and I was on assignment for the new iMoto Online, which if you haven’t heard by now, is Randy Yoho’s latest mastermind, and he’s brought me on board writing for the weekly program!
I arrived on Saturday to the track and immediately noticed the difference in the campgrounds compared to the primitive harescramble I just attended last weekend. As I looked around to all the white toy haulers basking in the sun and all the shining motor homes – I didn’t see one tent at Gatorback – I knew the difference: motocross is money.
Another thing that’s money is the MTF ride of Justin Barcia, who just moved up to the A class, and, as expected, he was the talk of the town. The kid is amazing. Have you seen this video of him at Loretta’s? The edge he rides on is literally unbelievable. He went undefeated in 250 Pro and 250 A.

More to come…
