Red Bull/KTM racer, Ken Roc‑
zen, has a bit of that rockstar
thing going for him doesn’t he?
Not the drink of course, he’s a
Red Bull man all the way. But the
haircut,the pop top rocker neck‑
lace, the monster earring hole,
AND the taped nipples....well, we
understand the taped nipple part,
they can chaff under a jersey dur‑
ing a hard race, but whats with
that huge hole in the ear? Shades
of Zapata Espinoza.
It must be working though,
the 2011 World MX2 champ has
shown he can race here in the
states, very competitively. Could
we see some American riders
looking at huge ear piercings as
the key to winning? Naww....
AMA Hillclimb: East Coast Style
East Coast Hill climbers got a
chance to show their stuff at the
AMA Pro Hillclimb race in Mus‑
kegon, Michigan. In the Wiseco
Unlimited Class, Vinny Nuzzolilli,
took the points lead from rival,
Jay Sallstrom, with a win at round
6 at Muskegon, Michigan’s his‑
toric Mt. Garfield.
Other name riders, including
Nate Redmann (who crashed in
round 5) came back with a vic‑
tory in the Xtreme Class, and Alex
Erickson took his second win in a
row, in the Pro Sport Division. His
first was no fluke.
The ‘Tilt-A-Rack’ Xtreme Class
had John Koester, put in a good
run, only to have Redmann post a
5.178 E.T., which set the bar even
higher. Shane Green, also looked
good, but crashed after the finish
line, taking him out for the rest of
the day. Robby DeBusk squeaked
by Green to round out the podium
in third. The AMA Pro Hillclimbers
face off next at Freemansburg, PA
for round seven on September 9.
