The rain came down hard on the scenic hills of Highpoint Raceway the day prior to the 4th round of the 2014 Motocross Nationals. This made for very muddy practice sessions, but with the dry weather on race day, the track certainly came around. It began to improve so rapidly in fact that lap times decreased from the 2:20 range all the way down to 2:07 just from the first practice to the second. This also made for a very rutted course however; and as the ruts began to dry and harden, it became very technical as well. This seemed to pose no problem for Jason Anderson as he made his expected...

Team Suzuki Press Office – June 15.

Kevin Strijbos was a pushy and consistent force at the front of the premier class of the FIM Motocross World Championship as the Rockstar Energy Suzuki World MXGP rider steered his RM-Z450 to a fourth podium of the 2014 series today.

The Belgian celebrated third position at the Grand Prix of Italy for round 10 and the 19th and 20th motos of MXGP category this season as team-mate Clement Desalle survived a hefty crash in the first race to finish fourth overall.

Changeable weather meant that the hills of Maggiora were slick in places, and while the...

The Rockstar Energy Racing squad headed to the mile high track of Thunder Valley in Lakewood, CO for this weekend's national. One of the most scenic tracks on the circuit, surrounded by mountains and very pleasing to the eye. It also has been known for extremely rutted, foot peg deep straightaways and corners. With the threat of severe storms on the horizon, the track was not watered as much as in the past. The rain ended up holding off and the track crew still kept the soil in perfect condition. Although it wasn't as deep as it is historically, the ruts were still technical enough to keep...

Clement Desalle:

“It is always great to win! I saw after the qualification moto that it would be very complicated to pass here and the start would be ‘more’ than important. I had a great one in the first moto, made some mistakes and dropped back to fourth but was soon into second and trying to stay with Tony. He is a very good rider so my plan was to stay as close to him as I could until the end of the race and it worked out like this in both motos. It is a really great feeling that the strategy worked. I wasn’t hoping that he [Cairoli] would make a mistake because I never want a...

Mechanical Failure Relegates Kwasniewski to 26th-Place Finish 

DOVER, Del. (June 1, 2014) Dylan Kwasniewski made his first-career NASCAR Nationwide Series (NNS) start at Dover International Speedway during Saturday afternoon's Buckle Up 200 and was on his way to a solid finish until suffering a late-race mechanical issue, which relegated the 19-year-old rookie and his Rockstar Energy Drink team to a 26th-place finish. During the weekend's two NNS practices, Kwasniewski and his Turner Scott Motorsports (TSM) team laid down the 21st- and 13th-fastest times, respectively. Kwasniewski then...

Rockstar Energy Racing and Jason Anderson headed north to the 46th annual Hangtown Motocross Classic in Rancho Cordova, CA for round 2 of the outdoor season. After just missing a podium by less than a lap at Glen Helen, Anderson was eager to line up again. He wouldn't be alone this time though as Joey Savatgy made his return to racing after sitting out the entire Supercross season with injury.

After a bit of a heartbreak at round 1, Jason was still able to keep his head up with a positive attitude heading into Hangtown. That's something he's been able to constantly do throughout 2014 when...

Team Suzuki Press Office – June 1.

Dry, hard, restrictive, challenging and polarising: St Jean d’Angely was this and more for the Grand Prix of France and the ninth MXGP round of the FIM Motocross World Championship where Rockstar Energy Suzuki’s Clement Desalle performed superbly to claim both motos and toast his third overall triumph of the season in front of 32,000 spectators.

Back on the calendar after the French fixture had de-camped to Ernee in 2013, St Jean was busy and appreciated by the fans that lapped-up the summer temperatures and generous sunshine close to the west...

Team Suzuki Press Office – June 1.

A hot Grand Prix of France on the hillside hard-pack terrain of St Jean d’Angely was the setting for Rockstar Energy Suzuki Europe’s Jeremy Seewer to excel and score eighth position overall in the MX2 class for what was the ninth round of 17 in the FIM Motocross World Championship as Brian Hsu topped the EMX125 Championship podium.

A packed venue north of Saintes celebrated a re-visit to the popular circuit that has hosted the Motocross of Nations twice since the turn of the century; and that saw 32,000 spectators filling the slopes that permitted...

Jeremy Martin: "We're here at Glen Helen, end of the day, and I was fortunate enough to walk away with a 1-1. Got two really good starts, and a good start to the season. I'm looking forward to my next two motos at Hangtown and seeing what I can do there."

Cooper Webb: "Weekend was good. I qualified really good and got two good moto finishes. My starts weren't great today, but I was able to come through the pack both motos and ride solid. I beat some good guys today and I'm pumped. Both Jeremy and I killed it today and I couldn't be happier. Good way to start the season!"

Clement Desalle: “Yesterday was a perfect day. I started second in the first moto but Frossard passed me and then in the first three or four laps I wasn’t riding so well. I had a big crash and hit my head on the ground, hurting my neck a little bit. I was really disappointed with that moto because I should have done much better and in the end I missed the overall win because of it. I had some physio before the second race and things went better. I concentrated on my riding and made some mistakes in the middle of the moto but when I saw ‘four laps’ on the pitboard I really focussed...
