MotoAmerica Off Track with Carruthers and Bice

MotoAmerica Off Track with Carruthers and Bice

Since both believe they know truly everything about motorcycle racing and most notably the MotoAmerica Series that employs them, they're perfectly capable of taking off the gloves to see who is right and who is wrong. Yet, they still end up sharing a meal after the smoke clears. So let's see how much trouble Paul Carruthers and Sean Bice (beauty before age) can get themselves into...

For at least another week, we can call Sean Dylan Kelly "Mr. Perfect" and that's not because of his perfectly coiffed hair or his bulging triceps.

We caught up to Kelly this week to discuss his rapid start to the season, his close loss in the Daytona 20...

Frankie Garcia is sort of a Swiss Army Knife of a racer. He's capable of many jobs when it comes to racing motorcycles. Last year, Garcia rode a Roland Sands Design Indian to third place in the inaugural MotoAmerica King of the Baggers event at WeatherTech Raceway Laguna Seca. He enjoyed the experience and Sands and Indian were happy enough to give Garcia the green light to compete in the three-round 2021 MotoAmerica King of th...
