not sure if the results are posted yet. that was Cycle City Promotions Kicker sponsored arenacross.

Lampi took 3rd in the 450 but crashed in the 250 but still worked up to 7th from dead last. Ginolfi did really good, 1st and 2nd. Someone named Betterman won the 250, awesome rider, the whoops were, as they say, SICK and he really blasted through them. Desedirio from NJ also placed top 3 in both 250/450. He's also quite freaking good. This was my 2nd time to Albany AX and if there is a better bang for the buck I'd like to see it. AX is in some ways "better" than SX it's a real chess game for picking lines because you HAVE to pick different lines in the turns and there is an awful lot of "sharing" lines also.

awesome stuff.

What about all the titles Tomac's trainer has won, and I don't mean the fights in the pits?

A knee injury might prevent Davi Millsaps from suiting up at Anaheim I. Photography by Kit Palmer
There’s an unfortunate chance that Davi Millsaps, who finish second in the 2013 AMA Supercross Championship, won’t be on the starting line when the gate drops at Anaheim I for the opening round of the 2014 Championship. The Rockstar Energy Team rider suffered a knee injury while practicing eight days ago and might not be ready to go come January 4. The injury has nothing to do with the leg that he had surgery on after this year’s Supercross season, which prevented him from riding the outdoor Nationals.
“I washed out in a corner and my leg got caught with the bike,” Millsaps said of the crash that caused the injury. “As the bike kept flipping, it twisted my knee. We’re still in the early stages right now. I’ve had an MRI on it, but I have to go back in and get another one. As of right now, we’re not sure what’s going on and what’s going to happen.
“It’s a huge disappointment,” he told Cycle News. “We got the bike working great, I was feeling good on it, and my other leg is doing great. Yeah, it kind of bums me out, but it’s part of the sport. I’m still young and I can bounce back from this.”
Millsaps added that he was pleased with his new KTM. “The bike is great, I thought we had it working really good. We’ve done a lot of testing, but for being on the bike for only four weeks, it was going good.”
The team already has a rider in mind to take his place just in case Millsaps can’t perform, and that rider is Ivan Tedesco, a former 250 Supercross Champion.
“Basically, I’m going to do some testing with these guys [Rockstar Energy Team] and prepare like I’m going racin’ and just play it by ear,” Tedesco said. “We’ll see where Davi’s at at A1, but on my end, I’m going to prepare like I’m going to race A1 and go from there.”
And if Davi does ride? “I don’t know, we’ll just have to cross the road when we get there. I’m excided, I’ve been wanting to do something the whole time. It’s just a matter of nothing came my way that I wanted. I’ve enjoyed the KTM, I’ve done some testing with them, I have some time on the bike, I like it, and that’s one of the reasons why I’m doing it.
“I’ve never announced my retirement – I kind of disappeared for a while but, in my head, I never retired. I was just waiting to see something come my way, if it didn’t, I was cool with it. We’ll just see where this goes.”
