The Dayton Motorcycle Club hosted the final round of the 2014 VP Racing Fuels AMA Pro Hillclimb series on their Devil's Staircase hill on Sunday. It’s the 65th year of racing at the venue.
The stage was set for what was to be a day of scorching heat and fierce competition at the Auto Club Raceway at the Pomona Fairplex. The inaugural Red Bull Straight Rhythm event did not disappoint, with a total of 32 riders going head-to-head - 16 riders each in the 250 and Open Classes. TLD / Lucas Oil / Red Bull / KTM's Jessy Nelson would secure the team's best finish of the day with a 3rd place overall in the 250 Class.
Troy Lee Designs is pleased to announce the signing of Darryn Durham to the team for 2015 and beyond.

It’s been a minute since we’ve seen Darryn Durham in action on the track. After a broken leg knocked him out of contention earlier in the season, Durham re-injured himself during practice at his comeback race and decided to save himself and heal up for a full-blown effort in 2015. Though he was out of the public eye for most of this year, Durham found himself with a nice offer from the new Troy Lee Designs/Lucas Oil/Red Bull/Honda team for 2015. Today, we spotted Double D in action on his new orange machine at Milestone MX…
