Who Will Be Master Of The Middleweights?

Supersport was, without a doubt, the most consistently compelling, must-see championship of the 2020 MotoAmerica season.

In the end, it was HONOS Kawasaki rider Richie Escalante who took the championship, and he did so by…

The Twins Cup Conundrum

MotoAmerica’s Twins Cup class is at a crossroads. Originally conceived as a way to showcase club racers from around the country by putting them on MotoAmerica’s national stage and aboard the same lightweight, twin-cylinder motorcycles that they race as weekend warriors, Twins Cup has evolved more than any other race class in the MotoAmerica Series. That’s what happens when humans…

Twins Cup: They’re Going Faster

During the five-and-a-half-year history of MotoAmerica, the phrase “they’re going faster” has been uttered many times, at most of the tracks, and in all five of the Series’ race classes.

New Winners In Round Two At Road America

If nothing else, Sunday at Road America proved one thing: No one’s perfect. Well, okay, Richie Escalante still is.
