Since we dropped the Red Bull Straight Rhythm bomb on November 6th, you, the avid moto viewer have been eating up the action clips like they were bacon-wrapped morsels. Those, my friends, have only been the video appetizers. What we have here is the tasty entrée that dives deeper into the world of Straight Rhythm.

The journey to professional motocross takes on many faces. With the world shrinking alongside the progress of technology, the U.S. motocross scene has a more international flavor than arguably ever before. Riders from as far South as Ecuador, to as far West as Russia are now competing full-time on U.S. soil.
Robert Lind didn’t fully commit to a professional career in motocross until the age of 22, as he was committed to finishing his education in his home country of Sweden. But since coming to America in 2012 with MX Heaven he has carved a place in the privateer ranks. In 2014 Lind will compete in his first professional season of Monster Energy Supercross. We caught up with the Swede to talk about his new beginnings.

2013 was my first year racing in the "A" class. I went into this season with two goals; First, to win the 200 A Championship, and second, to earn a Top 20 O/A number for the year. My season started of right on track. I won the 200 A class at the first three rounds and had maintained a top 25 finish at every round so far. I kept my momentum going into round 4 and managed to get another win and my first step towards my second goal by getting 20th O/A. At Round 5, I had a crash and kind of messed up my momentum with a DNF. I rebounded after with yet another win at round six, and then my best overall finish of the year at round seven with a 12th OA. At this point in the season my point lead was so great that there was no way anyone could catch me. I had accomplished my first goal, now I had to switch my focus to Overall points and getting comfortable on my 250. Round 8 didn't go how I had planned, but at round 9 I would score more points towards the overall.
What started off as a rough night for factory Husqvarna's Cory Graffunder turned into a career best when he took second place at the Las Vegas finale of the AMA EnduroCross series. The complex course at the Orleans Arena played to the favor of the extreme enduro specialist, who climbed his way into second place in what was a hectic and wild main event!
