Did you enjoy Christmas? Things here were good for Anthony & Vicki and their family; lots of food, drinks, and happy children.
So as 2009 draws to a close, I thought I’d take another look back at some of the cool two-wheel related happenings of the year…..
Valentino Rossi stamped his dominance in Moto GP once again winning his 9th World Championship, and with only a few major records left to break he is certainly on the way to becoming the greatest motorcycle racer of all time.
Aussie Motorcross superstar Chad Reed took out the AMA Motorcross Championship, and narrowly lost the Supercross series to James Stewart. Chad then returned to Australia and won his 4th Australia Supercross championship. He has also switched from Rockstar Makita Suzuki team to the Kawasaki Monster Energy Drink Team for 2010.
Besides racing, 2009 saw the unveiling of the Ducati Streetfighter (one of Anthony’s favourite motorcycles of the year.) Also the BMW S 1000RR hit the track in the World Superbike Championship and will hopefully be on the road here soon.
’09 also saw the return of the Crusty Demons here in Australia. Anthony & Vicki headed to Brisbane earlier in the year to catch them at the entertainment centre, and the Crusty team will return again in 2010, as will Travis Pastrana and the Nitro Circus crew.
And then first up for 2010……..Marc Coma and Cyril Despres with team KTM (…..and 159 other brave souls) are back to fight for glory in the bike category as the Dakar circus once again travels 9000km through the wastelands of South America. Day one kicks of on the 1st of January.
So that’s it for today, two more days of 2009 left to go and then 2010 begins. Hope you all have a good week, have some great rides and get out there and enjoy the ride.
And so our final 2009 winner for Derbi’s Celebrity Pillion Passenger of the Week is an american actress, born in 1972. She was formerly the fiance of Brad Pitt is now the wife of Coldplay frontman Chris Martin. She is the mother of Moses and Apple, she believes that shampoo causes cancer, and she will soon hit the screens again as “Pepper” Potts, the close friend, budding love interest, and business partner of Tony Stark, aka IRON MAN in Iron Man 2, which begins in May 2010.
She is Gwyneth Paltrow.
