According to reports, Yamaha’s Jeremy McGrath is training and riding more than usual between supercross seasons. Having been soundly dethroned by Kawasaki’s Ricky Carmichael earlier this year, McGrath (among other things) will race at Mammoth Mountain in a few weeks in multiple classes as part of an effort to remain “tuned up”.
McGrath will even race a YZ250F in the 125cc class. The reason, of course, is his desire to return the favor to Ricky Carmichael next year, and take back his crown. There is some indication that McGrath will even race an outdoor national before the end of this season.
