Lara Gillespie named in Ireland squad for European Championships https://seminoletribemotocross.com/lara-gillespie-named-in-ireland-squad-for-european-championships/ Wed, 27 Jul 2022 01:00:00 +0000 https://seminoletribemotocross.com/lara-gillespie-named-in-ireland-squad-for-european-championships/

Enniskerry’s Lara Gillespie has been included in a 15-rider squad that will represent Ireland at the European Championships in Munich, Germany, August 11-21.

The Irish team is one of the strongest and most diverse for many years with representation on the road, in the velodrome and for the first time, in the BMX Freestyle Park.

After the disappointment of missing out on the Tour de France selection, Sam Bennett returns to lead the men’s team over a 209.4 kilometer course, starting in Murnau a. Staffelsee and finish in Munich, where they will negotiate five laps of a city center loop.

Bennett will be joined by teammate and key leader, Ryan Mullen, as well as Irish champion, Rory Townsend, Eddie Dunbar and Matthew Taggart.

Ben Healy, the 2022 National Time Trial Champion, will focus solely on the time trial. Ryan Mullen, previously fourth in the European Championships, will compete in both the road race and the time trial.

Alice Sharpe and Mia Griffin will represent Ireland in the women’s road race. Sharpe enters the race in good form after winning the Irish championship jersey at the end of June. Griffin, best known for her track racing pedigree, has also impressed on the road with a top 10 on the final stage of the Baloise Ladies Tour in recent weeks.

Kelly Murphy and Joanna Patterson will compete in the women’s 24 kilometer European Championship time trial. The pair finished first and second in the national time trial championships, with Murphy edging Patterson by just 1.12 seconds over the 32-kilometre course.

The track events take place from August 11-16 and will see seven Irish athletes take to the boards. JB Murphy, Alice Share, Mia Griffin, Kelly Murphy, Emily Kay and Lara Gillespie will focus on endurance events while Orla Walsh will focus on sprint disciplines. JB Murphy picked up a stunning bronze medal in the Scratch race last year, adding to the bronze won by the women’s team pursuit team at the 2021 European Championships. Irish track runners will be aiming for more success in participating in a wide range of events throughout the week.

In an exciting development for the sport, Ireland will be represented at the BMX Freestyle Park for the first time at a European Championship. Ryan Henderson discovered BMX after breaking his neck in a motocross accident at the age of 16.

The East Belfast athlete has had a remarkable run since then and hopes to continue that progression at the European Championships and eventually become Ireland’s first freestyle representative at the Olympics.

WATCH NOW: COMMENTARY: Work ethic inspires Keith to succeed behind the wheel | Sports News https://seminoletribemotocross.com/watch-now-commentary-work-ethic-inspires-keith-to-succeed-behind-the-wheel-sports-news/ Thu, 14 Jul 2022 02:51:00 +0000 https://seminoletribemotocross.com/watch-now-commentary-work-ethic-inspires-keith-to-succeed-behind-the-wheel-sports-news/

BY ALLEN GREGORY BRISTOL HERALD COURIER

The traditional way to earn respect in the world of motorsport is to work long hours and make personal sacrifices on the short circuit.

Bluff City’s Alex Keith knows the grueling process of paying dues, but this Kingsport Speedway competitor’s story has a twist.

From age 17 to 28, Keith juggled two jobs while learning the basics of speed through the world of karting.

“Thank goodness I only have one job now, but I always stay busy,” Keith said.

As well as working as a business consultant at Wallace Imports of Bristol, Tennessee, Keith, 33, races in the Sportsman class at Kingsport and owns the Late Model car driven by Kingsport’s Glen Peery.

“I love sports,” Keith said. “When I was growing up, my dad and I would watch NASCAR races on TV and the colors of Jeff Gordon’s car really caught my eye. Things took off from there.”

At 18, Keith made his karting debut at Beechnut Raceway in Blountville.

People also read…

“I started out going on the track alone,” Keith said. “I raced at Beechnut for two years before it closed, then went to various go-kart tracks. I even drove a front-wheel-drive car on the dirt at Wythe Raceway.

Keith followed this learning routine on the go while creating a success story with the McDonald’s restaurant chain.

An entry-level position as a crew member at the Blountville site turned into a management position a year later. Keith was only 17 at the time.

“I worked at McDonald’s for 14 years and spent time in all of the Tri-Cities locations,” Keith said. “I was eventually promoted to a corporate supervisory position in Asheville.”

Keith said he was forced to take a three-year break from racing due to a lack of finances. Inspired by his rise at McDonald’s, Keith has since charted an ambitious path.

He finished third in the Sportsman Division points standings last year at Kingsport and has been a regular part of the show this season along with two of his colleagues.

Perry is the shop foreman at Wallace, while crew member Teddy Testerman is a sales and rental consultant with Keith.

“Racing takes a lot of dedication and time,” Keith said. “But I love coming here every Friday and seeing all the fans.”

The main obstacle for Keith this season concerns a case of the new car blues.

“We just haven’t been able to figure out what my car likes in terms of handling,” Keith said. “I guess my biggest flaw is that I’m a bit too patient and way too nice on the track. I have to find a way to be more brutal.

Keith’s winning personality and fluid marketing skills paid off. He was able to attract 11 sponsors between his two cars.

“It’s important to network and reach people, especially in races,” Keith said.

Part of Keith’s outreach process has been to give back to the sport. He helps sponsor go-kart prodigy Everett Larson of Mendota.

And Keith recently expanded his own efforts by purchasing a car to compete in Wythe Raceway’s modified division.

“It would be great to move on to the ARCA or NASCAR Truck Series one day,” Keith said.

For now, the former basketball player and Sullivan East High School graduate continues to pay his motorsport fees.

“I’ve come a long way from karting and those days of watching races with my dad,” Keith said. “I want to keep pushing forward and I will jump at any opportunity that comes my way.”

PIT STOPS: With over 400 competitors from across the country, the NHRA Junior Dragster Eastern Conference Finals at Bristol Dragway ranks as the equivalent of the Little League World Series drag race for the baseball. Teams actually started arriving in Thunder Valley last Friday for the Mike Box Chassis Craft event, which will continue through Thursday with some fun racing. The Eastern Conference Finals, which officially begin today, wrap up Saturday with championships up for grabs in eight age categories from 6-17. … Friday’s schedule at Kingsport Speedway includes a pair of late model races. Current Kingsport point guards are Kres Vandyke (Late Model) of Abingdon, Austin Walters (Sportsman) of Greeneville, Rob Austin (Street Stock) of Castlewood, Kevin Canter (Mod 4) of Abingdon and Brayden Powers of Church Hill in Pure 4. … The mighty Super Late Model class will be on show at Wythe Raceway on Saturday with the Food Country USA Schaeffer Summer Nationals. The $10,000 event up for grabs is part of a 12-race series that opens Friday at Beckley Motor Speedway in West Virginia and continues through July 30 at Tazewell Speedway in Tennessee. … Kingsport motocross racer Kevin Walker added to his record-breaking legacy last Sunday at the Tennessee State Championships at Muddy Creek Raceway in Blountville. Ignoring the lingering rain showers and mud, Walker, 52, won the 35, 45 and 50 age categories. Sixteen-year-old prodigy Matti Jorgensen Jr. (Pompano Beach, Fla.) swept the 250 and 450 Pro divisions. The list of local winners included Clay Shelton (450D) from Coeburn and Eddie Branch, 62, from Bristol. At Saturday’s Mega Series event at Muddy Creek, Walker recorded four wins. Hans Neel of Piney Flats took the 450 Pro victory while Cory Thornsberry (Bluff City) finished second in the 250 Pro behind Caleb Carter of Leicester, NC.

Local motocross racers train year-round and compete in the South https://seminoletribemotocross.com/local-motocross-racers-train-year-round-and-compete-in-the-south/ Mon, 11 Jul 2022 23:29:00 +0000 https://seminoletribemotocross.com/local-motocross-racers-train-year-round-and-compete-in-the-south/

CENTRAL LOUISIANA (KALB) – While most sports are closed for the summer, a group of athletes of all ages continue to compete locally in one of the most thrilling sports in the country.

“It’s unlike any competition I’ve ever seen,” said Kevin Kitchen, whose son Karson races in motocross.

Motocross is described by those on the track as 10 of the most exhilarating minutes in any sport. Runners put their bodies on the line year-round by competing in circuits across the country.

“It’s an adrenaline rush, and it’s really fun to be alone and to be free,” said Karson Kitchen, 14, from Woodworth.

Karson grew up around dirt bikes his whole life, but didn’t come out the door and start racing competitively until a year and a half ago when a friend of his took him on the track.

“The dad called me and said, ‘Hey, your son really wants to race this weekend, are you okay?’ said Kevin. “I said, ‘No, it’s not okay.’ We didn’t have our own bike or anything and we borrowed a bike to ride and I could immediately see in his eyes that he was hooked.

Karson was definitely hooked at the time. He continues to train several days a week to prepare for the races every other weekend. The Kitchen family travels across the South, competing where Karson has already made a name for himself with 25 wins to his credit.

Kevin said his son understands the risks he takes every time he steps out on the track, but the reward is worth it.

“When you have a 14-year-old looking at his mother and saying, ‘If I die doing what I love to do, just know that I’m happy,'” Kevin said. not giving back to the sport and really pushing him to be what he wants to be on the dirtbike.”

This drive is the same need for speed that kids from four years old through people in their 60s have when dressing up for race day.

Rodney Cain turns 65 this week and says the adrenaline of racing runs in his blood.

“You have to ride one and do a few laps to really appreciate it,” Cain said. “You fight a machine that weighs 200 pounds and you try to make it do what you want to do, but sometimes it has a mind of its own.”

Cain’s greatest thrill doesn’t come when he lands a jump or even finishes first in a race, but it’s being able to watch the next generation grow up and eventually pass him on the track.

“You see them when they start at the beginner level and with every step they take they go a little bit faster where they get to a full-size bike, they’re pretty fast,” Cain said. “I like to see them improve, go faster and go out to fight with the fast guys.”

If anyone would like to see these runners in action or join in, there is a local track at Hurricane Creek near Jena.

Monster Energy congratulates Maycee “The Future” Barber on loss Jessica Eye at UFC 276 in Vegas Saturday evening.

LA VEGAS, July 3, 2022 /PRNewswire-PRWeb/ — The future looks bright! Monster Energy congratulates Maycee “The Future” Barber beating Jessica Eye at UFC 276 in Vegas Saturday evening. In the women’s flyweight division bout that went the distance, the 24-year-old from Sacramento, Californiapicked up a unanimous decision victory after three rounds.

UFC 276: Adesanya vs. Cannonier was contested in front of an energetic crowd inside the sold-out T-Mobile Arena in Las Vegas, Nevada. The main card aired on ESPN pay-per-view, with the prelims airing on ESPN+.

Monster Energy’s Barber (11-2) came Vegas Saturday night, looking to extend his two-game winning streak. Previously, the popular MMA fighter had victories over Montana De La Rosa in April 2022 and Miranda Maverick in July 2021. Barber faced a tough opponent in Jessica “Evil” Eye, 35, of Ohiowho came to Vegas to recover from a three-game losing streak.

Early on, both fighters wasted no time engaging on their feet with Barber firing pinpoint shots from range. When Eye started a clinch against the fence early in the first round, Barber took the opportunity to deal massive damage with heavy elbows to the head that visibly bruised his opponent.

In round two, Eye absorbed more elbows and punches, then rallied and pressured Barber with a takedown but failed to secure a submission. But Round 3 was all Barber, all day: When it mattered, Barber landed ranged headbutts and connected bigger strikes to gain the upper hand in the fight. In the end, the judges declared Barber the winner by unanimous decision (30-27, 29-28, 29-28).

Saturday night’s triumph over Eye extends Barber’s winning streak to three straight wins. Following the unanimous decision loss to Barber, Eye announced his retirement from professional MMA in his post-fight interview.

“Being able to share the cage with Jessica Eye in his last fight was an honor. I’m happy and blessed,” Monster Energy’s Barber said after winning her fight at UFC 276 on Saturday night.

Barber made his MMA debut on the Legacy Fighting Alliance (LFA) circuit. In 2018, she joined the Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC) after a knockout performance on by Dana White Contender Series and earned the nickname “The Future”.

What’s next for Maycee Barbier? UFC 276 marked the final bout of his current UFC contract. “It was the last fight of my contract, and right now I was ranked number 13 at the start. So I want to sit down, I want to talk to them, and I really want to plan my contract and how we’re going chasing the title,” Barber said after UFC 276. Stay tuned!
