Hangtown and Glen Helen NewsWednesday, April 28, 2010 | 1:29 PM
Everyone seems to be waiting to make up their minds about whether or not they are racing the U.S. Grand Prix (if they are based in America), or the Hangtown National (visiting GP riders). We can tell you two things for sure: Monster Energy/Ricci Yamaha GP star Ken DeDycker has sent in his entry to race at Hangtown on Saturday, May 22, and Monster Energy Kawasaki Team Green off-road star Ricky Dietrich has decided to try his hand at the U.S. Grand Prix at Glen Helen. DeDycker, who hails from Belgium, is currently fifth in the MX1 standings after three events. As for "RD39," U.S. race fans will likely recall the heroic rides he had last year while filling for the injured Ryan Villopoto on the Monster Energy/Kawasaki MX team, which earned him AMA #39 for 2010.
