Beginning last season, MX Sports Pro Racing implemented a new numbering system for the Women’s AMA National Motocross championship. In years past, riders selected their numbers based on availability and order of selection was determined by where a rider finished in the standings the previous season. While the champion was designated to wear the number one plate, all other competitors were permitted to select any number that was available.
The 2010 campaign marked the debut of a new numbering system that determines a rider’s number by where she finished the previous season. As a result, one’s finishing position in the championship would serve as her number for the following season.
While Women’s MX Champion Jessica Patterson will enter 2011 with the #1 plate on her bike, jersey and helmet, below is a list of the remaining numbers for next season’s MotorcycleUSA Women’s Motocross Championship in accordance to each woman’s position in the final standings for 2010:
Where supercross started – the fabled Los Angeles Coliseum in 1972. This video is from 1985 at the L. A. Coliseum Supercross.
This video is part 1 of 2. I wanted to get it up for you as quickly as possible. In this video, for better or worse, you’ll see a lot of me (I’m number 5 on a Yamaha). But in the second video that’s coming, you’ll see a lot more of my friends in the race like David Bailey, Bob Hannah, Jeff Ward, Goat Breker, Broc Glover, Ron Lechien, Johnny O’Mara, and others.
I think in 1985, we ran two ‘main events’ at each supercross. Part of what you see here (if my memory is correct) is me winning the first ‘main event’.
And stay tuned for the second video! Both videos have the fabled Peristyle uphill / downhill. And especially in the second video coming late next week, with guys like Jeff Ward, David Bailey, Bob Hannah, Broc Glover, Ron Lechien, Johnny O’Mara and myself – you’ll see riders with about 33 AMA Supercross and Motocross titles combined!
Hope you enjoy the videos …

We now look back at Round 2 of the 2011 AMA Supercross Series Championship. It was January 15 in Phoenix. Below is the original article as it appeared that night on Supercross.com
James Stewart wins the Phoenix Supercross premiere class Main Event! His first victory in over one year! Josh Hansen wins 250 West Supercross Main. Round 2 of Supercross 2011, an AMA / FIM World Championship at Chase Field in Phoenix!
Another beautiful day – sunshine and warm temps during the day in the ‘Valley of the Sun’. Fastest qualifier in the premiere Supercross class – James Stewart with a 48.4 second lap time. Next in lap times – Ryan Villopoto, Trey Canard, Ivan Tedesco, Ryan Dungey, Justin Brayton, Austin Stroupe on a Yamaha, Kevin Windham, Josh Grant, Thomas Hahn, and Chad Reed.
After very patriotic opening ceremonies, and in what looks to be a completely filled stadium – just like last week in Anaheim, 250 Heat 1 takes off at 7:47pm local time. The leader? Former World MX 2 Motocross Champion Tyla Rattray! Kyle Cunningham, number 35 on Yamaha gives chase. But Rattray holds on to win! Kyle Cunningham second, Ryan Marmont from Australia third, Antonio Balbi fourth. Ken Roczen 19th due to a crash. Tyla Rattray is looking good so far in his first season of supercross.
