Name That Rider:
Can you name the rider on the KTM 50 in this throwback photo? Hint: If you put a couple of 2s between his initials, he would share the name with a beloved Star Wars character.
Tweets of the Week:

This weekend marks the professional debut for GEICO Honda’s newest dirt assassin, Matt Bisceglia. Part of the awesomeness of turning pro is finally donning the full team kit, as Matt clearly appreciates here. Different gear, same ripper. Check out Matt at Unadilla on Saturday.
To answer the ongoing question about what ill ride next year 1st I'm trying to decide to keep the dream alive? or go ride for someone else.. - Chad Reed
Probably the biggest question mark in the top tier of riders as far as 2014 is concerned has been Chad Reed. Speculators have said everything from retirement to switching brands to graduating to four wheels. Chad hasn’t answered anything yet, but it looks like the question is still up in the air for him, too.
Shark week is Epic - Josh Hansen

News of the Week:
With the Motocross of Nations fast approaching, we now have four teams confirmed: New Zealand (Cody Cooper, Rhys Carter, Kayne Lamont), Ireland (Graeme Irwin, Martin Barr, Stuart Edmonds), Germany (Ken Roczen, Max Nagl, Dennis Ulrich), and France (Gautier Paulin, Jordi Tixier, Christophe Charlier).
The big question is what will Team USA look like? If it’s not Ryan Dungey, Ryan Villopoto, and Eli Tomac, there might be recall vote. And why is Marvin Musquin not on Team France? That is a question for the gods of moto, because no one on this planet can make sense of it.
