Ian roberts News
I thought I had holeshot #2 nailed until…
Saturday Ian had a bit of a rough run he Holeshoted moto 1 then crashed and finished 4th. Was leading going into the first corner in moto 2 when Rius center punched him and took him out, finishing 8th.
Sunday was another story ‘Ian took 2nd in Pro Ski GP almost taking 1st for the overall,’ said Chris MacClugage , who was at the event watching the whole thing go down. Ian holeshoted moto 1 and won it. In the second moto he had a close race with Warner who ultimately was able to hold Roberts at bay for the win. Leaving Roberts with a 2nd overall for the weekend.
Brock Austin also had a great run this weekend as the kick off for the West Coast Jet Ski Racing has officially started. Brock ended the weekend with an solid 3rd in Pro Ski GP.
Ryan Decker had some issues Saturday he broke in both of his motos pretty much taking him out that day but when Sunday hit he redeemed himself by taking 1st in amateur Open, now that’s what I call a come back!!
Here are Ian’s results from Rds 1 & 2 of the DJSA series. I won 8 of 10 moto’s with a DNF and a 2nd in the other two. First overall in Pro-am Fast stand up both rounds and a 3rd and a 2nd in Expert 850 stand. Ian main competition was fellow Liquid Militia team rider’s Brock Austin & Pete Zernik He also had some good runs with Memo Gidley. Next stop for Ian is at the Blue Water Resort and Casino in Parker AZ for the JetTribe West Coast Nationals this weekend April 20-21 2013.
Liquid Militia Team rider Pete Zernik and Ian Roberts re cap from the DJSA Outlaw Awards for the 2012 season. Both riders ranking in the top 5 of the classes they compete in. Well done guy’s!!
I took 1st place GP ,1st place 850 fast stand for the season and 3rd in total high points out of all stand up classes.

Ian Roberts will be racing Oct 20th Lodi Lake CCR Lodi, CA Saturday.
When? and Where? Sept. 29 – Oct. 7, Crazy Horse Campgrounds, Lake Havasu City, AZ
We have thought long and hard about doing this event for 2012. And we have come to the conclusion that we are not going to have a booth this year. We have been doing this event for the past 6 years. We have decided to take a break from all the hustle and bustle for 2012.
Why? because we get so wrapped up in our booth that we don’t seem to have any time to hang out with our team riders and actually watch them race. So we want to use this year to focus 100% on our team riders and provide them the maximum amount of support we can offer.
We are going to work on something totally new and exciting for 2013. We we return to the World Finals, and when we do we will have a totally different booth set up and a full new product range to show off.
We know a lot of people will be bummed out not to see the legit Liquid Militia Booth this year but no worries we will still be attending so if you see us walking around we will actually have more time to chat with everyone. We are proud to announce that we have teamed up with Hydro-Turf , McGraw Insurance and ProRider Watercraft Magazine for the 2012 Ride and Grind World Finals Party at Kokomos. All the info is shown on this flyer below \/ We all have a few “SPECIAL” things planned for this party night so don’t be lame and miss out.
If anything changes or comes up we will update it right here on this post so check back for any updates.
WITH THAT BEING SAID WE ARE PROUD TO ANNOUNCE THE FOLLOWING LIQUID MILITIA TEAM RIDERS WILL BE COMPETING AT THE WORLD FINALS THIS YEAR:
Ian Roberts Racing Pro Ski GP and Open.
Brock Austin Pro am Ski Stock and Expert Limited.
Derek Fuoco Pro R/A Stock and Expert R/A Stock.
Tanner Thomas Amateur Freestyle

Ian Roberts will be attending this race Sept 15th Folsom or Hogan CCR Folsom Hogan, CA
I had a rough weekend at the Lake Perris IJSBA National, but it was worth all the headaches to hangout with and represent the best sponsors in the industry, Liquid Militia and Kommander Industries Thanks again for the support. Hey it wasn’t all bad, I won one moto to finish 3rd overall in Am open after a DNF in the first moto.
Ian’s headache started out when his transmission blew a few hours from home in Reno NV while in route to Southern California. His truck transmission blew the F up. Fellow LM rider Pete Zernik was already here at the LM HQ when he broke us the news. Pete was determined to help get Ian on the road. And if that meant finding a rental car, that’s what was going to happen. Pete somehow managed to get U haul to cancel another persons reservation and give it to Ian ha ha (stuff was said that I can not mention).
Ian hitched up his trailer onto his super classy U Haul and tossed in all his gear and was on the way. A little behind scheduled not a lot of time for testing but all in all he made it and that’s what counts.
Ian went 6-2-3 for fourth overall for the Hydro-turf UWP IJSBA Nation Tour stop in Reno NV. This stop was as local as it could get for Ian he is from Sparks, NV. Not bad for a home town victory 4th overall.
Below \/ Nice representation for Liquid Militia!!
