Remembering Coy Gibbs and More, on the Pro Taper Kickstart Podcast


Presented by Pro Taper

Last weekend was a sad one for the motocross community, as the sudden passing of Coy Gibbs has left the industry stunned. JGRMX changed the face of motocross and Supercross racing with Gibbs’ all-in approach to racing and running a team, and we reminisce about some of our best memories with Coy. The Dubya USA World Vets also went down, and two of our guys are headed to France this weekend for the Paris Supercross. Thanks for listening!

    Since Donn is now A-Ray’s Asiant, I think he needs to get O’Neal to make some pink gear like his “larger” JT days.

    Boys great podcast this week. Also if Aray gets the “super pole” I cant really afford to do any cash reward with ya, but I will throw in a bag of ice, and Tylenol to help with the pain. PS Yeah I related to Ryan rosner last weeks winner

    Now that Carson Mumford is in the used motorcycle business, I think it’s time for him to recreate his dad’s Special Rob skit from Moto XXX.

    A-Ray is engaged! 💍 he better not be talking about “hole in one’s” with hookers at a golf course ⛳️ I heard that excitement in his voice. 😬

    Great show boys! 🤙🏼 I’d love to have these bars for an old YZ 2 stroke I’m building.
