Strong showing for American in famed UK rallycross race

WOOTTON, UK (May 26, 2014) - Rockstar Energy Drink driver Tanner Foust put on a strong performance at the Lydden Hill Circuit this weekend to finish his first World Rallycross Championship appearance of the year in the top five.

"It's great having the opportunity to race at Lydden Hill, the place where rallycross was invented and a track that gets such huge and enthusiastic crowds," said Foust. "I always have an amazing experience here in the UK."

Driving a new Rockstar Energy Drink Volkswagen Polo, Foust was an early favorite for the...

Rockstar Energy Racing's Jason Anderson didn't have much time to revel in his championship winning Supercross season with such a short break before the Motocross Season's inaugural round of 2014. In fact, two days after Vegas SX, he had his wisdom teeth pulled on Monday and was back on the bike Tuesday. With such intense focus on the task at hand, the 250 West Coast Title will likely not sink in until the end of the outdoor season. However; he did come in Glen Helen carrying a lot of momentum.

Anderson is certainly very aggressive on the bike and to many spectators, the most fun to watch...

Round six was at Loretta Lynn's, a place I've been going since I was 3 years old. I raced the Amateur Nationals there from '92 through '04. So I was really looking forward to going back to my old stomping grounds and getting a good result. KTM has been working hard on my bike to make it start better, and it really paid off with a top five start (finally!). But coming into the second corner, someone hit me from behind and spun me out, leaving me getting up dead last. I charged back to catch the pack and made some passes in the first few miles, some really fast trail sections with lots of...

Kevin Strijbos 3rd in Spain!  /  May.13.2014

Kevin Strijbos:

“It was a good day. I had a bad start in the first moto but I could push all the way and passed Tony and Bobby and I was happy with fourth. I had the holeshot in the second moto but ran a bit wide and came out second. The race was not so easy, very warm and I was tired out there. We are all doing our best and our work is paying off. I thought the track was good. It was old-school with the layout and nice to ride. I think they put a bit too much water in the morning and maybe it should have been lesser and more frequent. We made a small change on the bike before the second...

Clement Desalle:

“This weekend started out as difficult because when I woke up yesterday I had a really bad stomach problem, and I had never really felt that way at a race before. I struggled, especially in the qualification Heat. I had to slow down quite a lot. I had some medicine and tried to have a good night but it was not easy. I wanted to do the best I could today and I’m quite surprised! My feeling on the bike was much better; really good. It was so nice to get two moto wins like I did. It is good for the confidence and the championship. I was really happy about my riding and I...

Suwannee Pro : Final Results  /  May.12.2014

Suwannee Pro Stop #1 of The Wakeskate Tour presented by Rockstar Energy

Kicking off the third year of The Wakeskate Tour this past weekend, the Suwannee Pro was held at Nick Taylor's wakeskate dreamland in the forests of North Florida. This was the second year for the Suwannee Pro and went off above & beyond anything we could have expected. Being one of the largest setups featured on the tour, there was concern of whether or not riders would be ready to tackle the gaps immediately after winter break. All such concerns quickly dissipated when the level of riding proved to be more advanced &...

Team Suzuki Press Office – May 11.

Rockstar Energy Suzuki’s Clement Desalle was virtually perfect in both races on his dependable factory RM-Z450 to take his first double-victory of the season and his second overall triumph of 2014 at today’s seventh-round World MXGP Championship race at Talavera de la Reina in Spain.

The Belgian also rose to second place in the MXGP championship standings as a result and narrowed the difference in points to just 24 from leader Antonio Cairoli.

Team Suzuki Press Office – May 11.

The Grand Prix of Spain brought the MX2 category of the FIM Motocross World Championship up to round seven of 18 and Rockstar Energy Suzuki Europe’s Julien Lieber again caught attention on the works RM-Z250 to score his highest moto finish of the season so far with sixth place in the opening foray at a packed Talavera de la Reina circuit.

The Belgian started brightly and showed some decent speed and commitment on a rough and slick soil. The numerous hills of Talavera contained a twisting and technically-challenging course. For the MX2 riders in...

Team Suzuki Press Office – May 4.

Rockstar Energy Suzuki Europe faced the Grand Prix of the Netherlands without principal star Glenn Coldenhoff, but riders Julien Lieber and Jeremy Seewer gave a good account of themselves through the tough Valkenswaard sand with Lieber scoring his best season result.

The shallow sand was bumpy and ruthless in some sections due to the presence of five racing classes throughout the weekend. The sun shone on the sixth round of the FIM Motocross World Championships and 27,000 spectators came-out to enjoy the weather and some first-class racing action.

Team Suzuki Press Office – May 4.

Hot Dutch sunshine shone down on the sand of Valkenswaard as Rockstar Energy Suzuki World MXGP’s Kevin Strijbos nudged team-mate Clement Desalle from the third-step of the podium in front of a decent 27,000 crowd for what was the sixth round of the FIM Motocross World Championship.

The Grand Prix of Netherlands is almost a home event for the Lommel-based factory team. The Eurocircuit sand was dry, bumpy and tricky with some hard and slick sections but also vast berms and ruts by the time of the second motos on Sunday. The terrain required some...

Dreams came true for Jason Anderson and Rockstar Energy Racing under the lights of Sam Boyd Stadium in Las Vegas. As the checkers waived for the last time in the 2014 West Coast 250 Championship, Anderson crossed the finish line a champion. Not only did Jason garner his first career professional title, it was also the first for the team after a long bumpy road to get there.


Coming into the last round of a series with the points lead is certainly the ideal situation to be in. However it's also very trying on the nerves of the whole team. The entire day leading up to racing, it's very taboo...

Colton Haaker came out swinging at the opening round of the most highly anticipated season of EnduroCross ever. Colton raced his Honda CRF450R to a hard earned Heat win after winding his way thru the mass chaos of downed bikes and riders. Colton backed up his Heat win and proved he was the man to beat by posting the fastest qualifying time for gate pick. Not only did he earn 2 additional championship points for his Heat race and Hot lap wins, but followed it up with a solid second place overall for the night in the 12- lap main event.

“I am so proud of Colton. He is maturing into a...
