Motocrossin' Mountain Bikers
Mon Nov 17, 2003
Source: MB Action

Eric Carter joined forces with Southridge Cycles' Don Jackson to put on the popular MTBMX at Glen Helen Raceway Park in San Bernardino. All you had to be was a mountain biker or working in the industry to be eligible to race. Eric was supposed to race himself, but couldn't. Instead, the World Cup Four Cross and National Mountain Cross and Downhill Champion was at home waiting for his wife Laura to go into labor. But even without Eric on hand to twist a throttle for himself, the big news was just how fast Shaun Palmer was. Although "retired" from DH racing, the six time Winter X Games Snowboard Champion has been staying plenty busy pursuing every adrenalin sport he can get his hands into. Palmer obviously has been riding a motocross bike--He led most of the 30 minute pro moto. It took the speed of Buddy Antunez, a five time National Arenacross Champion who's been moto'ing for most of his life, to finally catch and pass Palmer

Antunez, who isn't really a mountain bike guy, knew it wasn't fair for him to race against the bicycle guys and asked to be removed from the results. So that kicked everyone up a notch. Shaun Palmer is the official winner of the '03 MTBMX. Second went to Storm Cycle owner Mike Giem. White Bros R&D manager Gary Jones, a four time 250 National Motocross Champion, placed third. That may not seem very fair, but you have to remember, Gary is over 50 years old.

IN RELATED NEWS
Shaun Palmer announced his comeback to pro mountain bike racing. We don't know who he'll be riding for yet, but expect Palmer to make his downhill debut at the Southridge (SRC) Winter Series. (He hinted that he might even race the Southridge Challenge in 1-1/2 weeks.) Eric Carter said, in a message relayed from his wife's bedside, that he's going to be putting on riding clinics during the SRC Winter Series. Class will definitely be held the Saturday of each race day weekend, with Friday dates possibly added. The full information will be posted on our site as soon as the official announcement is made. Lastly, Lisa Sher said that she's not going to retire after all, and will be back on the gates next year.

No news has been leaked on whether or not Laura Carter has given birth to their first child yet.
