DC Shoes Moto team going big in 2012
Last month's DC Ride Day at the DC Motocross Training Facility at Pala Raceway served as a reminder of just how deep the DC Shoe Co. Moto Team
Riders featured in the clip include X Games 17 double gold medalist Nate Adams, new distance jumping record holder Robbie Maddison, motocross legend Jeremy McGrath, rising groms Adam Cianciarulo, Tyler Bereman, and Carson Mumford, and nearly all of the DC Moto Team riders, including Josh Hill, Jeffery Herlings, Andre Villa, Jolene Van Vugt, Hunter Hewitt, Blake Wharton, Justin Hill, Jason Anderson, Chris Plouffe, Matt Moss, PJ Larsen, and Malcolm Stewart. The third annual event also featured a poker tournament to help raise money for Road 2 Recovery, a non-profit foundation that provides financial assistance and other support to AMA-licensed professional motocross and supercross racers in the event of career-ending injury.
Although it's now just over two weeks into January, 2012 has already been a big year for the DC Moto Team: Robbie Maddison launched into the New Year with his Red Bull New Year. No Limits jump over San Diego Harbor after setting a new distance world record during training. Nate Adams closed out 2011 with a "Biggest Steeze" award at the Riders Above Dirt R.A.D. Awards and is on the cover of TransWorld Motocross this month as FMXer of the Year. JDR Motorsports released Malcolm Stewart's new video "Dream Ride" on January 3. Trey Canard is off to a strong start on the 2012 AMA Supercross circuit, with a seventh place finish at Round 2 over the weekend in Phoenix, Arizona. And Travis Pastrana just dropped the first trailer for his forthcoming "Nitro Circus 3D Movie."
Not too shabby.
