Brett Cue ALL IN – Sycuan Big Whip Invitational

We went down to the Sycuan Casino recently to check out Team RCH’s Big Whip Invitational where some of the top guys in the sport showed up to throw down. When you see a rider list with names like Lance Coury, Brett Cue, Destin Cantrell, Todd Potter and Billy Laninovich, you are definitely in for a show. Over $10,000 was up for grabs with crowd noise being the deciding factor when it came down to who went the biggest.

RCH Racing Soaring Eagle kicks off the 2014 Monster Energy Supercross Series

Carlsbad, CA (January 6, 2014) – RCH Racing Soaring Eagle kicked off the 2014 Supercross season in front of an excited crowd at Angel Stadium in Anaheim. The team sported new yellow and blue Fox Racing gear for the 2014 series, and the new Soaring Eagle Casino & Resort logos made their official debut as the team’s new title sponsor.

In the Main event both Hill and Tickle battled it out against the stacked competition. It was a solid start to the season for Tickle, who opened the year with a top 10 finish, taking 8th overall.

“The race went good and all in all it was a good night,” said Tickle. “I have more to prove to myself and the team. I got arm pump midway through the race and instead of pushing too hard, I rode through it. I’m looking forward to improving on my results in Phoenix.”

Josh also started the main but pulled off halfway through due to a sore back and finished 18th.

“I’m not too happy with the way everything went this weekend,” Hill said. “The team and I have worked way too hard in the off season for these results. I tweaked my back a little four days before the race which threw a wrench into Saturday. But there are no excuses; I’m going to keep my head down and work hard to get the results we deserve. I’m looking forward to this weekend in Phoenix.”

The team heads to Phoenix for Round 2 on January 11th at Chase Field in Phoenix, AZ.

As always, the RCH Racing Soaring Eagle pit will be active with plenty of entertainment attractions for the fans to engage with including the Suzuki Hole Shot Experience, autograph signings by the team at 3pm local time and the chance to enter and win a 3 night/4 day all-expenses paid getaway to Soaring Eagle Casino & Resort in Mt. Pleasant, MI. We hope to see you there!

FMX-Mas Big Whip Invitational

The Sycuan Casino in El Cajon, California played host once again to the FMX-Mas Big Whip Invitational with RCH Racing, and some of the gnarliest whip throwers in the game made the trip down to San Diego County to battle it out for the huge cash prize in this year’s competition. Lance Coury, Todd Potter, Brett Cue, Billy Laninovich, and Destin Cantrell took to the ramps in the mid-afternoon sun, but at the end of the day it was San Diego’s own Laninovich that walked away with the win and the hefty stack of Benjamins. To top the show off, fans were also treated to a Harley Davidson wheelie demo by UNKNOWN Industries and the UNKNOWN Riders, and following the show the competitors and the entire RCH Racing crew, including Carey Hart, Ricky Carmichael, Broc Tickle, and Josh Hill, greeted fans inside the casino to sign autographs and raffle off prizes.

Racer X Conversation with Josh Hill

Josh Hill didn’t win this year’s Terex Australian Supercross Championship. Although he led the points heading into the final round, his season instead ended in disappointment, confusion and controversy, courtesy of a take-out move by Jake Moss, which knocked Hill out of the series’ finale and out of the points lead. The benefactor? Jake’s brother Matt, who won the main and overcame the five-point deficit on Hill to take the title.

This move is quite controversial, and we’ll try to get both sides of the story by getting in touch with some of our friends in Australia, who will get an update from the Moss camp. For Hill’s side, our Eric Johnson rang up Josh yesterday afternoon to get his take.

Racer X: Okay, Josh I still haven’t seen the video of last night’s race from the Toowoomba Royal Showgrounds. However, I’ve heard all sorts of things from the guys at Transmoto in Australia as well as people in America. Just what in the world happened with Jake Moss that cost you the Australian Supercross Championship?
Josh Hill: I got like a fourth place start and kind of came through the pack and I had just passed Jake Moss about as clean as you could possibly make a pass. I got up on the rear wheel of Matt and had the inside covered about as tight as you possibly could and I just heard Jake coming and he was aiming for the inside of the bales so I tried to get as close to the inside bails as I could and he just kind of hit me from behind. He pushed me and lifted me up and threw me into the bales and I crashed. That was pretty much the end of the story. It was kind of a cheap shot deal because I think he was actually intending [to go to the inside of] the bales just to T-bone me. If you look at the videos and everything and you could see that there was no way he was going to stay within the track markers. He was coming into a 180-degee hairpin.

63438_hilllink.php_600

When he actually hit you, what went through your mind? Do you remember?
He had already been stating that he was pretty much using himself to help his brother win the championship and if that meant taking me out, he’d do it, so I already knew that I had a target on my back, but I didn’t expect him to cut the course to do so, you know?

Could you see what he was doing out of the corner of your eye at all?
Yeah, I made the cleanest pass that I could and I was on the far inside of the corner. I could feel him inside me so I tried to move over and I skidded my angle so he would have to hit his brakes. He was going to cut the course regardless

What place were you in at this time, Josh?

I was in second place at the time. I had just finished the second lap and I ended up turning the fastest lap time of the whole night in that one lap I was timed while I was coming through traffic.

What place did you get back to?
I DNFed. I rung my bell a little bit and bent my motorcycle up and there was really no need to continue. I was definitely seeing stars for a little bit and had the air knocked out of me. By the time I got off of me I was about to be a lap down.

Are you heartbroken or are you more like, “Whatever, man, if that’s how it goes.”

It’s one of those things. I would have loved to win the championship and just brought it home for everybody that put everything into this privateer effort. To win the championship would have pretty cool. I guess that’s just the way it goes down here. It’s kind of disheartening to see the way the promoters and officials handle things here because he made it clear going into it he was going to use himself to try and further his brother.

63437_25link.php_600

Did you go talk to the Moss brothers after the race?

You know what … it was one of those things where when I was walking down to the medic unit just to go get some Advil and I ended up walking past Matt Moss. I kind of just congratulated him on his win. There was really nothing to be said. There was really nothing to be done with situation but physical harm, but I figured it really wasn’t worth putting myself in that position and stooping to that level. I was just the bigger man and toughed it out and I’ve got bigger fish to fry.

Did you know the Moss brothers before going down there?

Yeah, Matt has always seemed to be a pretty respectable person and I’ve never had any issues with him. With Jake, the last three weekends, every time I’ve gone out to try and set the fastest lap, he’d purposely try to block me from and try to get in my way. It was things like that. It’s kind of funny, I guess. It’s just stuff that wouldn’t really fly back in the U.S.

What was the general consensus after all was said and done? Could you get a read on that?
I think the general consensus of it was that it was a cheap move. I didn’t go the podium or anything like that, but from what I have heard they weren’t shown too much respect up there.

Have you been able to talk with the RCH guys back here in the U.S after all this crap went down?

Yeah, they’re bummed that it happened but everybody is happy that I’m coming home safe. I think I proved that I was the fastest guy over here and it’s just one of those things that if the brother had not intervened I definitely would have been the champion.

Too bad you didn’t have your brother Justin down there, huh?
My little brother probably would have beat everybody. He’s on the gas right now. I think he’s trying to show the potential he should have shown last year. Injuries and just not having that confidence held him back. I keep telling Justin he is good enough to win and anything else should be unacceptable in his mind. He’s quite a kid and I’m pretty proud of him. I just want to see him do the best he can.

You missed out on this Australian Supercross title, but in the grand scheme of things are you just going to shake this deal off and get back here and start getting for the 2014 season?

Like I said, I’ve got bigger fish to fry. I feel like I’m on fire right now and had it not been for that little cheap shot by Jake Moss I would have won the championship easily. I feel the best I have in years. I think that the old me is going to be showing up. I really think I’m going to be in the mix at the front of the pack to remind people why I’m still doing it.

Disappointing End For Josh Hill’s Australian Season

Disappointing End To Australian Season For Josh Hill and Hart and Huntington/ InsureMyRide /DPH, Suzuki Race Team

Josh Hill and his Hart and Huntington, InsureMyRide, DPH Motorsports backed Suzuki team have endured a disappointing end to their 2013 Australian Supercross Championship season after Josh Hill was taken out of Toowoomba’s main event on the third lap while in a championship winning position.

Heading into the final round, Hill had a five point lead over nearest rival Matt Moss, with Matt’s twin brother Jake a further two points behind in third place and was confident he could do what was needed to take home the number one plate after qualifying second fastest, just one tenth behind Matt Moss.

Hill continued to show his pace in his heat race, winning by a comfortable five seconds over Brett Metcalfe and reigning Australian Supercross champion Jay Marmont who was a further three seconds behind.

After an altercation with Jake Moss earlier in the day, Hill knew things could get heated as he lined up right in-between the Moss brothers for the night’s main event.

When the gates dropped, Hill rounded the corner buried deep in the pack, however the rider who has re-signed for the RCH Factory Suzuki team in the United States, blitzed through the whoops and emerged from the second corner in 5th place, before quickly making his way through to 3rd place right behind race leaders Matt and Jake by the end of the opening lap.

With two corners to go at the end of lap two, Hill made a clean pass on Jake for second position and was ready to chase down race leader Matt. However as he landed on the down ramp of the finish line jump and proceeded to take the natural race line tight around the inside of the first turn , he was hit on the left rear of his bike, causing a crash that would end his night and dash his championship hopes.

13_sx_rd6-1726

“I won my heat race and had worked my way back to second after about a fifth place start in the main event and felt great,” Hill explained. “I had just made a clean pass into second place and was ready to go after Matt Moss, then Jake Moss decided to come from inside of the bales marking the track and cleaned me out.

“It was disappointing end to the season being taken out by what was a cheap shot by Jake Moss,” the American added.

“I was hit pretty hard and it took some time to pick myself up from underneath the bike. I was a little dazed and confused and by the time I got to my feet it was all over and there was nothing really left to race for, the championship was over!

13_sx_rd6-2273

“Obviously I was disappointed by the way it played out but I wanted to stay professional and not drop to that level and cause a fight and some carry on. I wanted to head back to the U.S healthy and with my reputation in tact and focus on my ride with the RCH team, which I have been able to do despite being taken out!

The resulted DNF recorded by Hill left him in third place in the overall championship standings, pending the results of an official protest regarding the incident at the conclusion of the race.

13_sx_rd6-1800

Despite the premature end to his championship campaign, Hill has continued to stay positive in the days following and could not thank both his team and his supporters enough for the positive experiences he has had while in Australia over the past couple of months and is now turning his attention to the 2014 American season and spending more time testing and getting ready for A1 on the 4th of January.

“I am looking forward to getting back to the U.S, I head home Wednesday morning and will get back into some testing with my RCH Suzuki team and focusing on A1. We did a little testing between the last two rounds of the Australian title and things were progressing well, it will be good to get home.” Hill stated.

“My time in Australia has been great, I have enjoyed all the support from the fans my team over here and especially the people I have been staying with while over here. The Australian crowd have been good to me and certainly given me a lot of support.

13_sx_rd6-1761

“Hopefully I will be able to come back and win the Australian title next year, and win the title we should have had for myself and the team.”

Hart and Huntington team owner Kale Wallis could not be more proud of the way Hill handled himself all season long after a tough start to the series and is looking forward to working along side Hill again next season.

“I’m very thankful to have worked with such professional athlete this year. Josh made everything easy for everyone who worked with him and I look forward in working with him again next year.” Wallis stated.

“I would also like to thank all of our sponsors involved InsureMyRide, Suzuki Australia, Contour, DPH Motorsports, Shell Oils, Kalguard, Dunlop, Sidchrome, Talon, RHK, Ringmaster Images, Exotic Graphix, Kickstart Industries, Rockwell, Shift, FOX, Uni Filter, Hinson, Pro Circuit, BCP, Polisport, AXIS Motorsports, Matrix Concepts, BEAM Designs, VORTEX, Works Connection.

“Also a special thanks to Kenny Watson from RCH, Luke Smith from InsureMyRide, Jarrod Pyne, Dale Hocking and Lewis Croft, and good luck to Josh in the AMA next year,” he concluded.
