    She has been on Monster Iron Horse for a long time, on maxxis tires. If you read the article, you will see she is going to Team Maxxis.

    Are you implying that the Turner DHR isn't a good bike? Let's hear it.

    That's going to be a great time, BTW. Hopefully some American pride finally!

    Who's going to be on MadCatz now, just Hill?

    no as fraser said i was saying that the ellsworths were peices of crap, they built luke a frame with out even checking to see if the shock would fit... that how much ellsworth is on top of things. i never said or was implying that dhr's are bad bikes i think they're rad. i was comparing a ellsworth to a iron horse.

    No doubt, but there sure seem to be a lot more junior kids that rip at the local Fontana races in just the past 2 years, the difference is pretty amazing.

    Hill and Brendan Fairclough will be racing together next year, other than Fairclough I haven't heard of anyone else joining the Ironhorse/MadCatz team for '08 so I'm guessing it will just be a two man team.

    Aren't you supposed to be re-designing your site or something? What's with all the "news" and junk?
