Nine-time World MotoGP Champion Valentino Rossi has organized the Motocross dei Campioni event at Cavallara in Italy and participated at the charity run in order to raise funds and help treat children suffering of leukaemia at a hospital in Pesaro, Italy.

The event gathered more than 10.000 people, among which Andrea Dovizioso, Julian Simon, Marco Simoncelli, Loris Capriossi and Marco Melandri were the other names associated with motorcycle racing.

Looks like The Doctor is no stranger to dirt riding either, as the attached video shows.

Yamaha’s 2010 YZ85 stands out as one of the best means to power you from mini bikes to the real think. Even though it still is an evolutionary step in an ambitious rider’s career, this is the bike on which the first racing skills are being developed and that’s all that matters sometimes.

A smaller replica of the YZ250 and YZ125, the revised two-stroke model is sure to be a great success because no matter what you’ll do, it doesn’t manage to stay behind even if you play around with palls on bigger, but not smokier rides.

Designing a dirt bike is never easy, but it seems that Yamaha has got the perfect recipe as it pulls it through, managing to release better performing competition bikes with each year that passes. For 2010, the YZ125 carries on further perfecting its already great features such as the engine and chassis. Even though not the most important model year because the bike was great from the very beginning, it does catch our attention once again and that is never a bad thing.

Looking for a quarter-liter two-stroke dirt bike? Well, find out that the YZ250 is one of the most appreciated models in Yamaha’s 2010 motocross lineup not only for being designed to win with its YPVS Power valve-equipped two-stroke engine claimed to perform better than any previous generation, but because two-stroke motors are a very rare breed nowadays. Still present, this one is housed in a light aluminum frame, which allows it to turn the machine into an even greater blast out on the track, especially now that it is being fitted with ProTaper aluminum handlebars and Excel rims.

Master of backflips Travis Pastrana together with Ken Block and the guys at DC shoes have come up with a unique customization idea for the FMX Suzuki bike ridden by Travis. They thought at getting rid of the tires (they were too comfortable anyway) and slip the bike into something more stylish, like these pares of shoes. Said and done! The bike is featured in a DC ad and on an episode of MTV’s Nitro Circus, where you can see Travis doing a backflip and finally tearing the rear wheel apart in one of the sickest burnouts we’ve seen in a long time. See it all for yourself in the video attached after the jump.

We’ve come across a very funny video showing an actor from Hollyoaks, the famous UK television soap opera, trying to pass over an easy obstacle at the Red Bull Romaniacs, the hardest enduro rallye in the world. The guy actually manages to see his way over the obstacle, but gets too enthusiastic about it and…and he brings home a nice story, just as the boss told him to. Just look at him go.
