This week’s flashback is from 2006 and Mini Moto magazine. At the height of pit bike popularity, this magazine provided race coverage and hop-up for the niche market. It wasn’t uncommon for guys to spend thousands of dollars on the pint-sized machines. The pit bike scene was a mix of fun and seriousness that lasted for a short time in the late 2000’s with races at local and national tracks and a supercross/arenacross in Las Vegas each year. It is experiencing a slight resurgence but unlikely it will ever reach the numbers it once had.
Here is an article that I produced the images and text for.
Mini Moto magazine. Issue #5 2006. Words and photos. This 2-page feature was an overview of the Trapani Pit Bike Series held at Raceway Park during the 2006 season. The article appeared on pages 76 and 77.
