MADNESS PHOTOGRAPHY

Madness Photography started as an official, serious company in 1998.
But the history of Madness Photography started long before. Onno “Berserk” Wieringa, founder and owner of Madness Photography, has been a self-taught photographer since he was a little kid and started to take pictures of something he loved since the day he was born: motorcycles!

His motorcycles
After he finished high school, he started working for various Harley-Davidson shops, where he learned to work on bikes. At the age of 17, he already owned two Triumph’s and when he was eighteen he had four Triumphs and a Suzuki GT 750. After getting his drivers license, when he was eighteen, the Triumphs all had to go and were replaced by a bike that he had wanted since the day he was born; a Harley-Davidson. This bike is still in his life; it’s an FXE-F 1200 Super Glide Fat Bob, which has been rebuild and modified endlessly and ridden for many miles. Going everywhere on the bike, there was one thing he always had in his pocket; his camera!
At the age of 23 he started drag racing, and he and his team named “Midnight Madness”, raced the bike on all the major races and drag strips all over Europe. He has competed in many classes; starting with the Street bikes, than Ultimate Street Bike, Super Stock, Pro-Stock, and then finally in the fastest gas burning class; Top Gas! Also again taking thousands of photo’s of everything interesting, at every racetrack! Being a racer for more than 18 years gave him insight in the world of fast bikes, and he’s still involved in the world of drag racing as a helper/mechanic and of course photographer / reporter.

New Suff at W&W: S&S SH74-Series Early Shovelhead Style Engines

S&S SH74-Series Early Shovelhead Style Engines

The legendary Early Shovelhead generator engine was made by the Motor Company for 4 years only, from 1966-1969, and today it’s a rare bird. This version by S&S with stock 74 cubic inches combines authentic retro style with today’s technology for thousands of trouble-free miles. 



Fully assembled with the best components S&S has to offer, so factory specs are at least met and in most parts exceeded. The latter include bullet-proof steel flywheels, reinforced connecting rods, billet oil pump, billet rocker boxes, and roller rockerarms. The installed S&S 513G cam provides higher lift and increased valve timing for better performance. 


SH74 Early Shovelhead engines come without intake manifold, carburetor and ignition, so you can choose whatever seems appropriate for your needs. Crankcases, cylinder heads and the gear cover have a cast finish, cylinders are black powder-coated and the rocker boxes are polished. Top end oiling is provided through the pushrods which makes external oil lines obsolete.

NITRO WORLD GAMES ANNOUNCES ADDITION OF RSD SUPER HOOLIGAN NATIONAL CHAMPIONSHIP

NITRO WORLD GAMES ANNOUNCES ADDITION OF RSD SUPER HOOLIGAN NATIONAL CHAMPIONSHIP TO UTAH OFFERINGS PLUS, NEW DETAILS ON ATHLETES, VENUE, AND MORE

Salt Lake City, UT – As if the 2019 Nitro World Games in Utah weren’t already action packed enough, Nitro World Games has expanded its race offerings by adding the high intensity RSD Super Hooligan National Championship (SHNC) to the schedule of events. Produced in partnership with the Utah Sports Commission, Nitro World Games returns August 17th at Utah Motorsports Campus.

Born from the days when racers rode their bikes to the track, competed, and then rode them back home, Hooligan racing features twin multi-cylinder motors only. Bikes are 750cc and above with 19” wheels and tires, and they must have a stock frame. High-powered motorcycles sliding sideways and banging bars is what flat track is all about and while the racing always gets close and personal, the bikes still reach speeds of close to 100MPH. 

The best SHNC riders including back to back champ Andy DiBrino, fan favorite Frankie Garcia, and current points leader Joe Kopp will be coming to Nitro World Games Utah to turn and burn in hopes of walking away with some cash but even more bragging rights from an extra special round of racing.

“The Super Hooligan Championship Series races are the perfect match for the Nitro World Games. SHNC riders are from every walk of life from Actions Sports athletes to welders, bike builders, artists and old pros. The one thing they all have in common is the ability to push heavy street bikes past their limits, exhibiting true heroics on two wheels.” said Roland Sands,
President of Roland Sands Designs.

Moto Quarterpipe, the event so big that it’s impossible to miss, is back and ready for the world’s best FMX athletes to take it on. Last year fans witnessed Colby Raha battle it out for the top spot but this year’s field is even more stacked with riders from around the globe looking to step up to this behemoth of a FMX feature. Australian Corey Creed is back with a vengeance looking to take home the win after coming up short last year while the talented Tyler Bereman is also looking to make his mark as he was unable to compete in 2018 due to injury. All riders will have to go through Colby Raha who set the height record during last year’s competition and walked away the 1st place trophy. Who’s it going to be this year?


Nitro World Games has also released its robust FMX Best Trick field. With one of the most innovative set ups in FMX, Nitro World Games FMX Best Trick will be sure to deliver the biggest tricks ever seen in competition.
