Honda HRC’s Ken Roczen embraced the retro spirit of Red Bull Straight Rhythm, racing the event as a dead-ringer for Jeremy McGrath circa 1995. And much like MC in ’95, he nailed down the win—and Page One of our January issue.
Inside the January issue of Racer X magazine:
• Red Bull Straight Rhythm looked like all fun and games, but the players were in it to win
• Privateer Marshal Weltin tries to make some cash in the East Coast off-season motocross races
• Our newest staffer got on his first-ever solo flight—straight to Vegas for an old-school weekend of racing and parties
• Our minicycle buyer’s guide helps you pick exactly the right first bike for your youngster
All these features and much more in the January issue.
Side 1 of our collectible pull-out poster features a gorgeous Simon Cudby action shot of Red Bull KTM’s Cooper Webb. Side 2 is a larger version of the January cover, with Honda HRC’s Ken Roczen decked out as nineties Jeremy McGrath at Red Bull Straight Rhythm.
On the surface, Red Bull Straight Rhythm 2019 was fun and games and awesome nineties moto-cosplay. But on the track, this was a race first and foremost.
THE PUMPKIN SPICE LATTE MOTOCROSS TOUR
When the Lucas Oil AMA Pro Motocross Championship ended, privateer Marshal Weltin went into leaf-peeper mode to compete in a string of one-off East Coast races.
We shipped off our youngest, greenest staff members, Mitch and Trent, to cover the Monster Energy Cup. Would they survive an old-school weekend in Vegas?
