Video: MotoAmerica Racer Joe Roberts Rides Dirt

In an effort to keep his skills sharp during the off-season, Joe Roberts opted to do a little mountain-bike racing recently in Southern California, and we were there to capture it on video and also have a chat with the MotoAmerica racer. The 17-year-old Roberts will ride a Meen Motorsports-backed Yamaha YZF-R6 in 600 Superstock. He will be joined on the two-man team by former AMA Superbike Champion Josh Herrin, who will compete in Supersport as the team goes for a sweep of the two middleweight classes in the debut season of MotoAmerica.
