RIDERS WHO HAVE THE MOST FUN

-- Competition improves riding satisfaction -- By D. West What are the most vivid childhood memories you have? For me, they tend to focus on the fun times, so that would involve sports. I remember learning how to throw and catch a football with the other kids in the neighborhood. From there, it just naturally progressed to us playing football games together in our front yards. This competition provided us with the ability to prove our skills and gain full satisfaction from the sport. That same philosophy was…

The Heat of WORCS Racing Round 6!

The heat didn’t stay away for the 6th round of WORCS Racing at the infamous Glen Helen Raceway, September 13-15th. Racers pushed the limits, battled through an ever changing rough course and the 100 plus degree temps for a chance at a podium spot. The course crew did their best to water the track enough for mud and slop to appear, and boulders where ripped out of the ground with each passing set of tires churning the Southern California dirt of Devore. Whoops, jumps, hill climbs, braking bumps, tracked out corners and the…

YFZ450R WOODS MACHINE

-- Cole Richardson’s GNCC Yamaha racer --  By the staff of Dirt Wheels,  Photos by Ken Hill It takes a lot to become a pro ATV racer.

Countless hours are spent wrenching, working out your body and psyche, all while honing your skills on the quad to become one of the best. None of those facts matter, though, if you don’t have a great machine to pilot in the…

WHERE IS THE ALL-NEW HONDA TRX450R?!

We can't hide the truth. Our beloved sport ATV market has been taken over by roll cage equipped machines. Do we want to stick our noses up at the UTV market? Of course not! Those machines are a blast to drive, and get more people included in our favorite hobby: off-roading. But, if we are honest, we are very bummed out that the sport ATV market has fallen off the radar of most major manufacturers. In fact, Yamaha is the only remaining major manufacturer that offers a race ready 450 and a trail ready 700R straight axle sport…

3-WHEELER NEWS

-- Looking back at 2018 & ahead to 2019 -- Production of 3-Wheelers ceased in 1987 due to safety concerns as 4-Wheelers took over the market.  Most Major race series then moved away from 3-Wheelers around that same time period.  In 2014 the New East Extreme Dirt Track Series allowed 3-Wheelers back into the regular program as exhibition classes and they quickly grew over night.  At one of the series largest Events in 2018 at Pine Lake Raceway one can easily find more than 100 of these 3-wheeler machines from the 80’s…
