As we hit the one third point in our 12 round RC Mobile Office & Storage Pro MX game. Out front and running strong as he continues to carry the Red Plate, TEZUKA now has a 33 point lead over Stroker15 & TheWeapons, who are tied at 2nd with 894 points.
The most impressive part of TEZUKA's points lead is his three round run of consecutive top 10 finishes. A 7th in Lakewood. Followed by a 5th at High Point. Wrapping up a Independence day weekend 10th at RedBud.
Its difficult to imagine this type of run continuing in the unpredictable chaos of fantasy motocross. Altho as the series heads to the sands of Southwick 338, it is team TEZUKA leading the pack. Check out who's running 10th overall. Legendary X-Games Champion & multi Gold medal winner, Mr. Matt Buyten.
The story about how I met Matt. In 2002, my last season of AX, I needed a last minute mechanic for the final two rounds of the series in Oakland & Tacoma. Some friends had mentioned this kid from Reno who was a good mechanic & was an aspiring freestyler. I said sounds good.
This skinny punk kid shows up in Oakland, I throw him a team shirt and he was awesome. He was rowdy, mouthy and could spin some wrenches. Obviously we hit it off immediately. A handful of years later, Matt's freestyle career was taking off & he was quickly becoming one of the best in the World at the crazy Step Up competition.
At the time I was at Smith Optics & knew I needed to have him on the team. We immediately signed him & Matt goes out and over the next few years wins multiple Gold medals while wearing Smith goggles. 20 years later, we are still great friends & talk almost daily on a group text thread. That's the greatest thing about moto. You meet life long friends at the most random moments. Welcome to the show B10.
