The Moto: Inside the Outdoors Full Episode Guide

  • In this adrenaline rush of an episode, the 250-class title hunt of 2012 was a head-to-head battle between Eli Tomac, Blake Baggett, Dean Wilson, Justin Barcia, Marvin Musquin, and Ken Roczen. The work they put in during the week all converge come race day where, regardless of circumstance, they all find themselves on the same starting line. Having only won three Moto's between 2010 and 2011, Justin Barcia invested a lot of his own money in building a track in Florida where he could practice. This proved to be fruitful, landing Barcia on the podium enough times to put him within 14 points of Baggett at the second to last race of the year in Steel City. New to the American Pro Series, Ken Roczen is this year's biggest question mark. Holding the record as the youngest ever GP winner, many believed that Ken would follow in the footsteps of the some of the greatest riders in Europe. But the American Outdoor series presents challenges unlike anything found abroad. Marvin Musquin, a fellow European transplant is in his second year racing in the United States and can attest to the difficulties of riding as an unknown in a new country with little support. The intense heat and grueling outdoor tracks push the limits of physical fitness, and if the Europeans are going to dominate the American market they will have to adapt quickly or face going home disappointed. Even for those raised in the United States, battling heat exhaustion on the tracks proves to be challenging. But no team is better equipped to breed champions than Mitch Payton's Pro Circuit Team, which has won the number plate every year for the past eight years. With the pressure of the past weighing on him, Blake Baggett will fight to the bitter end to clench the title for Pro Circuit once again and take home the Championship.

  • With the top four riders injured this year, the sport needs someone to step up. While a Championship may be unattainable for riders like Mike Alessi, Andrew Short, Broc Tickle and Jake Weimer, they all rely on their mentors to get them on the box.

  • When Nico Izzi shattered his heel in his second professional season, he thought that 15 years of work had been destroyed. After losing nearly every material thing he owned, he has returned to racing for the sake of his 2-year-old daughter and fallen frien

  • Motocross has taken Davi Millsaps' kidney, consumed the last twenty years of his life, and strained his relationship with his mother. While the sport will strain both body and soul, Davi Millsaps finds more positives than negatives every day.

  • Motocross can no longer guarantee the future of top ten riders like Josh Grant, Tommy Hahn, and Kyle Chisholm. They dropped out of high school to pursue this dream and risk their lives every time they throw their legs over a dirt bike.

  • In the most dramatic Moto of the year, Ryan Villopoto beats Ryan Dungey on the last corner of the race. And in the 250 class, a champion is crowned.

  • Tyla Rattray looks to gain ground on teammate and rival Dean Wilson, but a crash jeopardizes his championship aspirations. Andrew Short deals with on and off-the-track issues that make his season struggle.

  • The racing world lost one of its own last week at Redbud. Josh Lichtle passed away from heat stroke complications. He was 23 years old.

  • The long battle between Pro Circuit teammates and rivals, extremely focused Blake Baggett and the laid-back Dean Wilson, comes to a head at Red Bud. In the 450 class, Chad Reed finally gets some vindication as a rider, owner, and father.

  • Ryan Villopoto looks to add the missing piece of the championship puzzle and hopes trainer Aldon Baker is that piece. With Baker's aggressive training style, rigorous schedule, and lofty conditions standards, Villopoto looks to take the next step and win the 450cc championship. Villopoto struggles in round one and looks to rebound in the upcoming race at Firestone in Texas. Pro Circuit, Monster, Kawasaki partner, Blake Baggett looks to prove himself to the motocross world. Baggett's rookie season came to a crashing halt after a season ending injury. As an underdog, Baggett showed his determination with a 2nd place finish after climbing out of the 9th spot twice in Moto 1. Baggett's patience, combined with his tutelage under team Manager Mitch Paton pay off in Moto 2 with a 1st place finish. Baggett looks onto Texas to continue his dominance of the early motocross season but suffers a major let down that threatens his championship aspirations as well as his season. Cagy vet, Chad Reed, out duels Ryan Dungee in the Texas heat to take the 450 outdoor motocross over all win.

  • As the outdoors season gets under way and riders head to Sacramento for the first race, KTM 450 class rider, Mike Alessi, is looking to break his disappointing 2-season injury streak. After putting in impressive practice times and, with his father back on board, Alessi suffers a bad crash and a concussion that has him sitting out the first two races, dashing his hopes for a championship before the season even starts. The drama unfolds with the senior Alessi explaining the hard truth to his son, begging the question, "who's more upset about the devastating crash... and why?" Last season's champ in the 450 class, Team Suzuki's Ryan Dungee, is looking to repeat his performance with a new crew and team leader, after losing mentor, Roger DuCoster, to Alessi and team KTM. After losing to rivals, Chad Reed and Ryan Villopoto in supercross, Dungee battles hard in Sacramento, winning the first moto and placing second in the second moto, only to lose the race to Reed, who won the second and took second to Dungee in the first. The veteran and first time team owner, Reed, is off to a great start, silencing the ney sayers and skeptics with his win. After a short season last year, Chad Reed already has fans wondering if the title will change hands again, or, with Alessi out of the way, will Ryan Dungee dominate again.
