Things are changing at Cycle World, the largest subscription Motorcycle Magazine in the world. There is new blood in the decision making offices. Editor Dave Edwards, who ignored Grand National Flat Track Racing for 25 years is gone. The new guys get it. They appreciate the artistry and wide open excitement of Dirt Track Motorcycle Racing.It is an American experience that deserves decent coverage. Go to any National at any Fairgrounds in the U.S.A. and tell me that it is not the best motorized Americana you have ever experienced.
Cycle World's own Mark Cernicky felt the thrill of Flat Track and has jumped into the Pro Ranks of the 450 class. He has been competing at races all around the South West and congrats to Mark for putting it in the main at the Arizona Mile. Look forward to his riding comparison of all the Twins makes in a future article. Lets hope we see a monthly Flat Track report on all the 2011 Grand Nationals in the pages of the new Cycle World.
