Sights at the All Japan National MX Championship Finale

The 2019 MFJ All Japan National MX Championship Series came to an end last weekend at Sugo Sportsland in Sendai, Japan, and SML was on hand to check out all of the sights at the season finale since we missed the opener at Kyushu in April while we were still in the initial stages of creating Swapmoto Live. Thankfully, the Japanese moto Gods provided dry weather on race day, even though rains hammered the area on the Friday and Saturday before race day. The track started out as a super-sticky mess, but it developed into an excellent course for racing.

Australian star Mitch Evans turned in some impressive finishes in this year’s MX2 World Championship Series aboard his 114 Honda Motorsports machine, and was invited by HRC Honda to come to Sugo for the series finale. For the past several years, Honda has brought in International racers for the Sugo finale. Cole Seely went in 2017 and Tim Gajser in 2018.

Evans turned in a pair of commanding moto wins, but that’s not the only thing worth talking about! Check out the giant gallery of works bikes and more below!

    I thought the Showa BFRC rear shock didn’t work well in motocross, so why were all the factories including Narita’s ride using one?
