I know I have been terrible as far as posting goes, and I am sorry for this. I have been busy and more important things have taken over writing. I can’t promise that I will continue to post frequently after today, but I do want to just post a little update on what I’ve been up to the past couple of weeks months.

Josh Clark is turning pro this weekend at Southwick. Paul Buckley Photo.
Up and coming New England expert Josh Clark, 17 of Franklin, Connecticut, has recently been given a two race support ride from Warthog Racing for the Southwick and Steel City Nationals. Josh is one of the most talented and hardest working riders in New England and is hot off a successful week at the Loretta Lynn’s / Air Nautiques Amateur Motocross Championships and a dominant day at the Unadilla Amateur Summer Classic.
Josh is ready to move up to the next step in his motocross career and this support from Warthog Racing and Scott Kandel is just what Josh needs to make a successful transition from the amateur motocross ranks to the highly competitive national scene.
I am happy to announce a new sponsors of my motocross racing efforts – Tek Graphics. Tek Graphics is a Brooklyn, Connecticut based motocross graphics company. Tek was started by New England amateur racer Ty Gagnon as a spin off of his father's Gagnon Sign business.
Ty is a great guy and is doing great work for many of New England's best riders. His graphics are of the highest quality and his designs are second to none. Ty has been involved in graphic and sign
making since he was a kid, and it definitely shows in the quality of his work. He also works very hard to provide top notch customer service. I have seen him hand deliver graphics to local races on more than one occasion.
My father recently had Tek add MikeMartinRacing.com, Racer X, and Racer X Virtual Trainer logos to the front of our box truck, and they look awesome. Ty did a great job of making the graphics fit in with the rest of our truck's design and it came out awesome.
Tek Graphics is already making graphics for a number of New England's top riders, so if you are not yet one of their customers, stop wasting time! Visit www.tekmx.com to order your graphics today.
James Stewart revolutionized motocross in ways he never imagined – Photo by Steve Cox
You may not have noticed it, but our sport is changing. In the past few years motocross has gone through incredibly significant changes. Yes, the four stroke has become the dominant motocross technology and yes Leatt Braces are now prevalent in almost any motocross event across the country. However, what I'm talking about it something different.
Ever since James Stewart turned pro, his riding style has pushed the limits of what is possible on a motocross bike. It was shocking watching him hit bigger jumps than anyone else (on a KX125, no less) and scrub speed on every double, triple and table top. James Stewart's riding style was truly evolutionary.

Both motocross and cycling are very intense adrenaline pumping sports. As a result, music is a great motivational factor for both activities. While “good” music is obviously a very subjective thing, everyone is always looking for good music, and because of this, my favorite motivational music for riding is listed below. Feel free to check out the artists and leave your comments/recomendations at the end of the article.
