This week Chris sits down with racer, teacher, motorcyclist, author, and all around awesome person Shelina Moredo. Shelina currently races several classes professionally, is just getting started in flat tracking, teaches several disciplines including her own “All Girl Moto Camp” dirt bike school, and has been known to write a few articles for various publications.

Moto Media XXX Press Release
Moto Media XXX will make its debut at the AMA Pro Road Racing event in Daytona Beach, Florida for the Daytona 200 Weekend at Daytona International Speedway.
Moto Media XXX was formed during the 2013 off-season. Breeann Poland, former AMA Pro Road Racing Team Manager and Sasha Valentine, Co-Founder of the International Blog site Café Racer XXX have come together to create Moto Media XXX. Moto Media XXX is a marketing and promotions company dedicated to preserving and growing the race scene and supporting the overall motorcycle lifestyle. The main goal is to drive up fan attendance and provide entertainment for fans of all ages at the track. We also plan to create custom events in the motorcycle community. We will offer marketing services and social media services to racers to help build their programs and attract sponsors.
“We saw a need for more to do at the track, says Poland. “While the racing is top notch many fans, sponsors and teams are left wandering aimlessly throughout the tracks during race weekends. It has become harder for fans to justify spending money to go the track and not bringing friends and family along. We aim to have a little something for everyone to enjoy. Each track will have a custom event geared for the local demographics and track layout.”
At Daytona International Speedway, we have been lucky enough to have an opportunity to support the Sprint FANZONE with a “Café Racer Village”. Moto Media XXX will provide an array of entertainment including a DJ spinning music all day, a custom motorcycle village lined with builders and their displays including: Café Racer XXX, Loaded Gun Customs, Triumph America, Soul Custom, Old Soul Young Blood, TT Motosport, Hangar Cycleworks, Rusted Jalopy, Benderwerks , and Why We Ride. Not only will some of the latest builds and merchandise be on display, but builders may be finishing off their latest builds in real time. Fans will be able to ride their builds into the fan zone to be part of a bike show. Swag giveaways by Ace Café and Café Racer TV and MotoArt by muchomoto. “Real Talk” will be hosted by Kevin Dunworth (of Loaded Gun Customs and Café Racer XXX) that will highlight builder and race personalities at the event.
Moto Media XXX will also be supporting select AMA Pro Flat Track events throughout the season. “Two wheels translate and we really want to drum up excitement within the two wheel community and drive support to the races where it is greatly needed, says Valentine.”
Thanks to the great folks at AMA Pro Racing and Daytona International Speedway for having faith in us and allowing us to take part in this great event.

Episode 166 – Nowhere near a bike
Feb 27, 2014
Chris still doesn’t have a bike, so he’s ridden around the block. Once. In about three months. What right does he have hosting a motorcycle show at all? Well, he and James did… And it was good. The guys talk about a new interpretation of the moped, that 70s classic. You supply your own engine. That makes sense, right? And if that’s not enough on which to get your intellectual mastication, the fine, fine Pace Podcast gentlefolk also discuss The Man and his need to interfere with… riders never getting licensed. And there’s lots and lots of feedback!
Sadly, we’re unable to get a show out this week. The last several weeks have been awful in terms of people being sick, long day-job hours and various commitments. Call it a Winter break, if you must. Yeah, that’s it.
We’re back next week with a full show with news, opinions, feedback and all the goodness. Want a teaser…? HONDA!
So, go hit the card store, get your sweetheart something pretty and enjoy the upcoming weekend by NOT thinking about burly, hairy (except the bald one) podcasters moping around in snow and ice, barely remembering how to even start a motorcycle, much less ride one.
Happy Vallumtimes Day.

Death of a V-Strom! Great new tires! Bits in your boingers? And if that isn’t crazy enough, Lotus goes two-wheeling. Or at least their name does. On the upside, no one’s sure if that’s actually going to come to market. That might be a good thing. And speaking of coming to market, we speculate on the veracity of a new Yamaha R3. TRIPLE? Hmmm…. maybe not. But it’s good to ponder, and ponder we do. With gusto, and stuff.
We then try to catch up on the email and feedback, and listener Christopher Knox gives us a picture of his lowered V-Strom.

Happy Holidays, 2013
Happy Holidays, Merry Christmas, and all the other greetings that I’m entirely too uncultured to know. James and I have decided to take the next few weeks off and come back after the first of the year. We both work in IT in the financial business, and that can be just awful at the end of the year for finishing out projects, long hours and crunch time deadlines.
Enjoy the break. Thank you all for a wonderful 2013. This year was a big one for us, both on the show and behind the scenes. Thank you for staying involved, for all the great feedback, interaction, encouragement and support.
And get involved the Winter Holiday Photo Contest we’re sponsoring. Details can be found on the forums at http://thepacepodcast.com/forums/index.php?topic=10.0
Take care, and we’ll see you again real soon.
