[COVERAGE] Exxxotica New Jersey

November 15th, 2012 by Elusive Media

Exxxotica starts just 1 week after Hurricane Sandy the expo & days easier Nor’easter Athena drops seven inches of snow. Even with 2 feet of water in the expo center from Sandy, Exxxotica show continued as planned with the work of all the organizers. Because of the devastation in the area “Organizers Three Expo Events” started Exxxotica Gives Back, which raised food, clothing, house-hold goods, along with donations and silents auctions which raised close to $5000, and directly benefited the not-for-profit charity, Relief for Little Ferry and Moonachie Fund. With that being said, attendance was still outstanding for all 3 days. Over 100 stars and 100 exhibitors showed what the adult world has to offer. Saturday night fans enjoyed hip-hop group Naughty By Nature, while seminars and shows, like Miss Exxxotica and RubberDoll, kept the fans entertained throughout the weekend.

[COVERAGE] Red Bull Indianapolis MotoGP

August 22nd, 2012 by Elusive Media

The sun is out and not a drop of rain is set for Indianapolis Motor speedway, Round10 of MotoGP Championship was set for a great weekend of racing! Over the years, rides from all classes have complained of bumpy track, so at the end of last year’s race, IMS repaved the entire inside track. Even with race weekend being rain free, Thursday the 16th, a massive thunderstorm came through the city, soaking the track and leaving the track dirty, but with the sun beating down on the fresh tarmac, fans and rides were eager to see what each rider could put down for a lap time. Rides quickly learned, even with a bump free track, MotoGP was the first to ever go around the repaved track, which lead to a very slick surface. ISM this weekend took no prisoners. Héctor Barberá returns after being out on injury, while Toni Elías Stand By in case he need to fill in. We quickly learn it was a good thing, Barberá comes out of the last turn and loses traction and land on the top of his helmet, injuring his back. Stoner during qualifying takes a fast high side which throw him off the bike, where we later find out needs surgery, but even with a fracture and torn ligaments in his right ankle, Stoner continues to race on Sunday. Nicky Hayden also takes a high sides as well which renders him unconscious and injurers his hand. Medical steps in and see him unfit to race his home race on Sunday.
Now onto Race day, which isn’t done claiming rides. Spies goes out with engine issues, Crutchlow crashes out, Randy out with bad clutch, and Pirro out as well. Even with Stoner’s enjury he fought a hard battle to take 4th, a disapointing weekend for him, but good to pick up some much needed points in the Championship. Dovizioso finish again on the podium with 3rd, while Lorenzo couldn’t keep the blistering pace of Pedrosa, winning by nearly 10 seconds.

[COVERAGE] Carlisle Bike Fest ’12

July 28th, 2012 by Elusive Media

Last year we were dealt a heat wave, this year temperatures were kept on the comfortable side but with a chance of rain all weekend. Even with the weather, this didn’t stop riders from all over to show of their pride and joy. Along with thousands if bikes roll into the fairgrounds, Carlisle always has a great line up of special guests, bike builds, giveaways, and bands. This year was no different, as Monster Energy Freestyle MX puts on a stunt show that has to be seen in person, where they put on 9 shows of this extreme sport on all weekend long. For anyone into wrestling Half Pint Brawlers were there to entertain along with the talented StarBoyz. If that doesn’t keep ya around the fairgrounds, giveaways from ipad, Kawasaki Ninja, Harley-Davison, and a 7 day cruise sure will. Not only did the bikes fill your ears, live bands kept the music flowing all weekend along including Charm City Devils which rocked the stage Saturday night.

Look forward to another successful weekend at Carlisle! Enjoy the photos!
