Did You See This Over The Weekend?
Weekly Dirt is inspirational, stupid, challenging and ridiculous. And if you weren’t reading this at work we’d say grab a beer and dig in!

Final Results – Red Bull Romaniacs 2016 — Jarvis Wins His Fifth!
Graham Jarvis: “It’s an awesome feeling to win my fifth Romaniacs title. No one else has ever done that before so this is quite special considering it’s been three years since my last victory here. Like always it’s been a tough week of racing. I didn’t get it together on the first off road day and dropped down the order a bit. I knew I needed to regroup quickly and winning days two and three pretty much helped me secure the win. Finally a big thanks to Husqvarna and Damien my mechanic for their support, it’s been a big team effort to get this winning result.”

It appears that although Eli Tomac and his Kawasaki are super-fast and is plenty capable of winning a moto or an overall but maybe not every week. At Spring Creek it was all Ken Roczen and his Jimmy John RCH Suzuki. YES, all Roczen. Not only did he win both motos in a convincing fashion, he did it with bad starts and ripped the field apart on his way to the front in a matter of lap. No, not lap(S), but lap. Watch the highlight reel if you did not see it on the boob tube. HERE IS THE LINK
Alex Martin swapped moto wins with Cooper Webb but nabbed the overall with a second moto victory at his home track. Really it is his home track, his family owns it.
