Shops: Steady Garage, In the November Issue

RoadRacing World - Wed, 2021-12-01 00:28

Featured In the November 2021 issue of Roadracing World:

         When American Honda introduced its all-new 2022-model Grom to journalists, the company let them loose on the tight mountain roads in the Angeles National Forest north of Los Angeles. And for a base of operations, American Honda chose one of its partners, Steady Garage.

         Don’t let the name fool you. People who are ‘steady’ do not stuff hot rod CBR300R motors into Grom chassis, but the guys at Steady Garage have been doing that and more at their shop in Irwindale, California, for nearly 10 years… 

            —Shops: Steady Garage, by David Swarts

 

            There are many sub-cultures within the two-wheel world. There are people who are passionate about mini-motos and scooters, including the guys at Steady Garage and their customers. Read about a project that started with a trio of childhood friends and has become one of the leaders in this fascinating niche. It’s all in the latest issue of Roadracing World!

Video: FIM Women In Motorcycling Commission Celebrates 15th Anniversary

RoadRacing World - Tue, 2021-11-30 22:13

FIM Women in Motorcycling Commission celebrates its 15-year journey 

FIM Women in Motorcycling Commission (CFM) had its first commission meeting 15 years ago in Salvador Bahia, Brazil. The decision to create the commission was done earlier that year in February 2006 and in June the FIM also signed the Brighton Declaration on Women and Sport.

During the last 15 years the CFM has focused on providing more opportunities for women involved in all motorcycling activities and making the motorcycling world more inclusive. Today the CFM launches its 15-year anniversary video presenting the highlights of the past decade and a half. As the video demonstrates, at the moment women have their own World Championship series in Trial, Motocross and Enduro and World Cup series in Snowcross, Cross Country and Baja. The number and level of riders have grown year after year providing some very interesting battles for the spectators.

Beside the sport activities the CFM has recently put more focus on training and inspiring women to aim for the leadership roles within motorcycling. As a second part of the anniversary campaign the commission will launch the second edition of the “Dream Big” book that presents many inspiring stories of women from different roles within the motorcycling world.

FIM Women in Motorcycling Commission Director Nita Korhonen: “The last 15 years have been a great adventure for our commission and a lot has happened since our first meeting in Brazil in the autumn of 2006. Today it is natural that women can succeed and even win World Championships in motorcycling against male competitors, but we hope to see also more women in the leadership roles on a national and international level. Today we celebrate the last 15 years with our milestone video and as a second part of the celebration campaign we will soon launch the successor of the Dream Big book. The third and final part will be a big surprise that we hope will show the direction for the future of the CFM.”

FIM President Jorge Viegas: “Women are a natural part of motorcycling and the FIM strongly supports the presence of women in all the motorcycling activities worldwide. We need more diversity in motorcycling and we all have to work towards a more equal and more gender balanced world. The FIM Women in Motorcycling Commission has done a brilliant job over the past 15 years and during this time we have seen many great achievements and milestones. I hope that one day women will be so well represented in motorcycling that there is no longer a requirement to have a dedicated women´s commission anymore.”

Owners’ Track Intro: KTM RC 8C, In The November Issue

RoadRacing World - Tue, 2021-11-30 19:59

Featured In the November 2021 issue of Roadracing World:

        “The large group of riders gathered on pit lane at Jerez Circuit, anxiously waiting for the blue garage doors to roll up and unveil their new 2022 KTM RC 8C track bikes. When the garage doors finally opened, they revealed a fleet of 25 KTM RC 8C motorcycles, each with a custom number and all on stands and tire warmers, awaiting their new owners. 

        “The atmosphere in the pit box was electric and the excitement infectious. I snuck into the group unnoticed and claimed the only unmarked KTM RC 8C in the lot. I was happy to join the group for a day at Jerez, and tried to stay under the radar. A full day of riding on the track was ahead, including eight 20-minute sessions, with Dani Pedrosa and Mika Kallio mixing with the group on and off the racetrack…” 

            —Owners Track Intro: KTM RC 8C, by Chris Ulrich

 

            Build a motorcycle that evokes passion for riding and it will sell—that was KTM’s plan for the track-only RC 8C. Adding in a once-in-a-lifetime track day experience at Jerez with KTM MotoGP test riders Dani Pedrosa and Mika Kallio saw the 100 units available worldwide sell out in just 4 minutes and 32 seconds! But does it work on the track? Racing Editor Chris Ulrich was on hand to test the sporting twin, and his review is in the latest issue of Roadracing World!

MotoAmerica: MP13 Racing Fielding Ventura In Twins Cup

RoadRacing World - Tue, 2021-11-30 19:27

MP13 Racing Back In Action For 2022

MP13 Racing and team principal Melissa Paris are pleased to announce the team’s return to the MotoAmerica Series for 2022.

The Class: Twins Cup

The Equipment: 2022 Yamaha YZF-R7

The Rider: Cory Ventura

Oceanside, California (November 30, 2021) – It has been since the 2019 season that the MP13 Racing team has fielded a motorcycle on the grid for a MotoAmerica race. In that time, team principal Melissa Paris won a National Championship as a mechanic with Altus Motorsports and rider Cameron Petersen, and she also worked alongside the Westby Racing and HDR teams with rider Hunter Dunham. But, in the past two seasons, a re-launching of MP13 Racing has been in the back of Melissa’s mind, “It’s always been in my heart to run my own team…but, for the last two years, it has made sense to try to add to my skill set. Having the chance to work with both Cameron Petersen and Hunter Dunham over the past two seasons has been invaluable. I owe a debt of gratitude to both of them for the trust they placed in me. I’m also forever grateful to the Westby Racing team who, in the past season, supported my growth as a crew chief. With the new R7 coming out, it feels like the timing is right. and I’m so excited for next season.”

In 2021, the Twins Cup Championship had a total of 14 races with 7 different winners. It is easily one of the most competitive classes in MotoAmerica. A staple of Twins Cup has been the Yamaha MT-07 Hyper Naked Motorcycle converted into race trim. But, with the May 2021 announcement of the YZF-R7, things have gotten more interesting. The YZF-R7 has the same foundation as the MT-07 including frame and engine, but updated parts, frame bracing, and more aggressive looks make it more of a “sportbike” lending itself to be the perfect weapon for Twins Cup competition.

 

Cory Ventura, who competed for MP13 Racing in 2018 (shown here after winning Junior Cup Race Two at Sonoma Raceway), is returning to the team for the 2022 MotoAmerica season and will be aboard an MP13 Racing Yamaha YZF-R7 in Twins Cup. Photo by Brian J. Nelson, courtesy MP13 Racing.

 

Further adding to the excitement of MP13 Racing’s plans is the signing of multi-time MotoAmerica podium finisher and current AFM #1 plate holder Cory Ventura. Cory rode for MP13 Racing in 2018, securing the first MotoAmerica win for the Yamaha YZF-R3 in Junior Cup. “I am extremely excited to be racing with MP13 Racing in 2022 on the Yamaha YZF-R7 in Twins Cup. Melissa and I have stayed pretty close since 2018 when we raced the R3 in Junior Cup, which was the most fun year for me on and off the race track. Since then, I have developed more as a racer especially after my last two years racing on the West Coast with AFM, as well as a couple of MotoAmerica wildcards. Melissa is putting a lot of time and effort into this, and it gives me a lot of confidence and motivation to race for her. I am so excited and more hungry than ever to come back into a full MotoAmerica season with MP13 Racing.”

MP13 Racing is also excited to announce that there will be exclusive content and lots of ways for fans to engage with team members via their participation on the Patreon platform (https://www.patreon.com/mp13racing).

Also, stay tuned for an announcement about the launch of the new MP13 Racing Fan Club.

Although it’s still early in the process of securing support for 2022, MP13 Racing would like to thank and acknowledge those partners already on board for the excitement ahead, including Yamaha Motor Corporation U.S.A., Maxima, J4orce Training, O2 Creations, GHD Designs, One Cure, and All Kids Bike.
