By the staff of Dirt Wheels
; Have you ever wondered, what
makes your favorite pro rider so fast?
Not only do they have years of experience, ride the best equipment and
train like football players, they have
secrets. We took a close-up look at
some of the top riders’ machines at
the Unadilla, New York, round of the
Mountain Dew AMA ATV MX
Nationals for a glimpse of some of
their go-fast secrets.
Chad Wienen just wrapped up his second AMA ATV MX championship in a
row aboard his Yamaha YFZ450R. Sure,
he is a good rider and the Yamaha
YFZ450R is fast, but the secret to his
recent success just might be the tricks
mechanic Ryan Cox has brought to the
team from his years in the sport.
