FRIENDS Christy and Jim Gibson Jim and Christy Gibson are an- other moto couple that we love to see, and talk with. Christy helps Jim run his MX Training courses (www. jgmxt.com) which Jim conducts out of his Southern California base of op- erations. One of Jims Swiss students went back to Europe and is doing very well in the Junior MX2 champi- onship series. After training with Jim for 3 months earlier this year, Swiss moto racer Andreas Steiger went back to his home country, and is now in sec- ond place in the Swiss International MX2 class. “My main focus is tech- niques training, and teaching people the skills it takes to ride, race, and win at motocross. “I can teach anybody who’s willing to learn to be a better rider, or racer,” adds Jim. We believe him. His next class is August 14th-17th. You can contact Jim at (951) 265- 7866 or jim@jgmxt.com Dick Burleson In DIRT ILL’s humble opinion, one of America’s top enduro racers is none other than Michigan’s Dick Burleson. Dick won eight consecutive AMA National Enduro Championships, (1974-1981) and eight ISDT gold medals. “King Richard” Burleson, as he was also known, was inducted into the AMA’ s Hall of Fame as well. Dick now works for Moose Rac- ing, coming up with all kinds of cool gear for off road riders, and contin- ues to educate and advise our cur- rent ISDE teams in their pursuit of off road excellence. If you see King Richard at an off road event, be sure and give him a hearty thumbs up and tip of the hat, for his near decade of dominance of American enduro racing. Long live the King. Mr. and Mrs. Rocket Janet and Rex Staten were on hand at the Anaheim 1, Checkered Past Clothing party to have their happily married picture taken by none other than DIRT ILLustrated videographer/photographer, Bren- nan Wright. Nice shot Bren, you captured this married couple per- fectly. Ever consider a career as a wedding photographer/vid- eographer? www.dirtillustrated.com
