Have you ever wondered how GoPro gets all of the great content for their YouTube channel? Well, on the supercross tour it’s in the hands of Jarred Browne and the great GoPro supported racers. In this video from GoPro, Browne goes over his work flow at an event and gives some tips on what settings to use to capture all of the action.
Every couple of weeks I’m going to point out a resource or website that I use and share with you why I think it’s valuable, informative or just interesting.
This weeks resource is Feedly. A feed reader tool that allows me to monitor hundreds of websites and only check them out when new items are posted. Most websites publish feeds (RSS Feed definition) and using a feed reader populates a list for you to review. What I particularly like about the Feedly version is the easy sharing options, the ability to save and read later, as well as the organization that allows me to put similar feeds in categories to read all at once. Without the Feedly reader, I’d be lost.

Good luck guys!
The opening round has come and gone and in my opinion it didn’t disappoint. Solid performances by Ken Roczen and Joey Savatgy to take their respective overalls. Is this a sign of things to come? Only time will tell. With that, here is my look back at Hangtown.
First the 450 class.
You’ll recall I picked Ryan Dungey for the win followed by Roczen and Eli Tomac. Well, I had the right racers just not so much on the order. Hangtown 2016 was quite a bit different than Hangtown 2015 for Roczen. Last year the RCH Suzuki racer suffered from a back injury and went 19-5 for twelfth overall. In 2016 he led every lap of both motos. A great start to the series. Dungey went 2-2 for second overall but he appeared to be close for most of each moto, ready in case Roczen made a mistake. Overall I think this was a good start for the defending champion. In 2015 Tomac dominated Hangtown. That was not the case in 2016 but his 4-4 results were good for third overall and what I think is a positive start to the outdoor series for the Monster Energy Kawasaki racer. Jason Anderson (6-3) finished fourth overall and Trey Canard (7-5) rounded out the top 5. Solid finishes for both riders.
Team Yoshimura Suzuki seems to have a black cloud overhead in 2016. James Stewart went out with a crash and subsequent shoulder injury in moto 1 and Blake Baggett, after a 1st moto third place finish went down in a very simple crash, breaking his collarbone. SEE VIDEO HERE from MotoXAddicts.com . I hope they can turn it around later in the season when they return from their injuries.
On to the 250 class.
I picked Jeremy Martin for the win, followed by Aaron Plessinger and Zach Osborne, Well, I was a bit off. The actual results were: Joey Savatgy (1-1)with the overall, followed by Jeremy’s brother Alex Martin (8-2) for second and Cooper Webb (4-5) for third. First moto rain and a second moto restart played into the results but overall I feel that this class went just as expected. Nothing is set in stone for the 250 guys and I think it will be like this the entire season with inconsistencies up and down the line. I think we’ll see flashes of brilliance from riders during the season but the most consistent rider will prevail. Right now I don’t know who that is.
Who surprised me? Geico Honda’s Jordon Smith was second in moto 1 less than 4 seconds behind the winner Savatgy, nice ride for the young racer. Cooper Webb also surprised me. Watching him ride in pain from a broken wrist a couple of weeks back in Las Vegas, I though for sure he was sitting the series out and preparing for his 450Sx debut in January, but a 4-5 for third overall is a strong way to start the series and since his wrist will only get better look for good things the rest of the season for the Star Yamaha rider.
Check back later this week as we preview round 2 at Glen Helen.
