The 2014 CrossFit Regionals have come to a close and VIRUS was there to support the athletes and see all of the action go down. The Regionals are an event that cannot be substituted by watching it online. These are events that you have to see in person. If you didn’t actually make it to one of these, you need to make a plan to do so next year. The energy is over the top as the people in the stands cheer for their favorite athletes with matching shirts and signs. The vendor row was strong with great companies showing off their goods. Overall it was a great experience and VIRUS was stoked to be there to see it all go down. We are extremely grateful to all the athletes and attendees that supported us during all the Regional events and we look forward to being there even stronger next year.
Check out the gallery below to see some of the action we covered at the events.
The 2014 Supercross season came to a close this past weekend with a sold out crown at Sam Boyd Stadium in Las Vegas Nevada. Many athletes from different sports were there to cheer on their favorite riders including Vteam UFC athlete Jake Ellenberger who is a huge fan of motocross and a rider himself. Another UFC athlete in the crowd was Miesha Tate who was out to get view of the best SX racers in the world. After the races everyone headed back to the Hard Rock Casino circle bar to celebrate and see the SX season come to an end. Vteam snowcross athlete Logan Christian was spotted hanging out at the circle bar and was stoked to share the crossover with all the other Vteam athletes. Overall it was a fun event and checkout the highlights of what went down this season with the Vteam moto team.
Vteam athlete Justin Bogle brought home his first 250 east coast SX title. Justin was an underdog coming into the series after recovering from a bad crash in December that left him with multiple broken bones in his back. Through true determination, hard work, and the help of VIRUS affiliate Dr. H. Rey “DR G” Gubernick, Bogle was able to get back on the bike and be as ready as he could be for the east SX series. Bogle put in some solid rides and grabbed a couple of wins in the series to have a good point lead coming into the final round in Las Vegas. Bogle’s day didn’t go as he hoped with a couple crashes in practice. He regrouped for the east coast main event and came out with a large holeshot over the 21 other riders. Bogle led for five laps before getting passed by the very determined Jeremy Martin. With Bogle being sore from the day’s earlier crash he decided to ride to smart second place finish and secure the title then he celebrated with a Jeremy McGrath salute nac-nac and a no handler. Congratulations Justin!!
Vteam athlete Dakota Tedder had his best season in SX since he turned pro. This year he competed in the highly competitive 250 west coast SX series. The highlights of Dakota’s season was winning the holeshot award at San Diego and a top 10 finish at Anaheim III. Dakota had a rough night in Las Vegas crashing into another rider in the west coast main event. Dakota’s never say die attitude kept him going and he battled back to 14th by the end of the main. Dakota finished a respectable 12th overall in the west coast series and is ready to do battle in the great outdoors starting May 24 at Glen Helen Raceway in San Bernardino, CA.
Vteam athlete Wil Hahn was having a great rookie season in the 450 class on his GIECO Honda before disaster struck and ended his Supercross and outdoor MX season for 2014. Hahn was running top 10 in points and had as high as a 4th place overall in a 450 main event. Hahn is working hard with Dr G. and his trainer Ryan Fedorow to get back to where he physically and mentally was before his crash. Get well soon Wil!
Vteam athlete Davi Millsaps was on hand at the Vegas Supercross signing autographs and showing his fans that he is ready for the outdoor motocross season. It will be great to him back out there on the track again. Millsaps will be debuting the new DM18 training arm sleeves that he uses for his warm ups and recovery needs between motos at the open round of the mx series at Glen Hellen Raceway on May 24.
As we head into the outdoor motocross season be sure to check out all the Vteam athletes as they try to claim the 250 and 450 MX Sports titles.

“The mental side of crossfit is really what separates people from the top
level athletes to the athletes that are almost right there.”
