RIP Georges Jobé

Georges Jobé (born 6 January 1961 - died 19 December 2012) was a former five-time FIM motocross world champion from Belgium. In addition, Jobé also won several Belgian national motocross championships in a professional motocross career that spanned from 1979 to 1992.
       Jobé jumping over Malherbe at Hawkstone Park 500cc GP - making a double where there wasn't one.


Jobé was crowned FIM World 250cc Motocross Champion in 1980 and 1983, and later went on to be crowned FIM World 500cc Motocross Champion in 1987, 1991 and 1992.[1] Jobé's 1987 500cc championship was notable as he won riding a "private" Honda CR500. Most of his rivals were on the official "factory" teams of Honda, Kawasaki or KTM. In 1988, having been crowned World Champion in the 500cc class, Jobe competed in the 125cc World Championship to attempt to win the "Triple Crown" (FIM 125, 250 and 500cc world titles). He was unsuccessful, with countryman Eric Geboers achieving the feat by winning the 500cc World championship in that same year (Geboers having previously won world 125 and 250cc titles). Geboers was a member of the victorious Belgian team at the 1980 Motocross des Nations.
Jobé is famous for an incident that occurred during the 1984 British 500cc Motocross Grand Prix, held at Hawkstone Park, Shropshire, England. In 1984, the Hawkstone Park circuit included a large "double jump" (before they were customary on top motocross circuits). Few riders had the courage to attempt to clear the jump during practice, let alone during the actual race. However, during the second race of the Grand Prix, Jobe passed rival André Malherbe by clearing the double jump, physically jumping over his rival in the process. Photographer Nick Haskell captured the moment, and the image of Jobé flying over Malherbe, with the crowd cheering on is often seen by some as one of motocross's most iconic images.

In 2007 Jobe was paralyzed while training young riders in Dubai. After four years of intense rehabilitation, he has recovered his strength and is now walking and riding his bicycle. However, in 2011 he was diagnosed with leukemia. He lost the battle against his illness on 19 December 2012 at the age of 51.

Video featuring Trey Canard: "REvival 41" Official Trailer




Trey Canard's crash last season was one that most riders don't come back from. But #41 knew he had a higher calling. When others doubted and the pain progressed, he knew he was destined to race again. This is the story of Trey's year-long journey from back injury to the starting gate of the 2013 Supercross season as he strives to put #41 back on top.


REvival 41 tells the story of Trey's comeback, his attempt to reconcile the tragedy of his past and the pain of his present, with his unshakeable belief for the future. It's the human struggle to persist, continue and hope in the face of overwhelming pain.

"People say that what you believe in is a fairy tale. But I don't believe that at all...I believe that I was put on this earth to ride a motorcycle" -Trey Canard

Trey will be wearing Fly Racing gear and the Fly F2 Caron helmet.  I am really looking forward to seeing Trey racing again and wish him the best of luck in 2013.
