X-Games 17 Los Angeles, CA Team Report

Rhys Millen Racing - Huntington Beach, CA - August 3, 2011

 

Rhys Millen finishes 5th at X-Games 17 in Downtown Los Angeles and 3rd overall for the 2011 Global RallyCross Championship.

 

The Road 2 X-Games stared with a whole new platform for Rhys Millen Racing in 2011. With the release of the all new 2012 Hyundai Veloster, set to come out this fall, RMR would show the world how competitive a first year Hyundai rally program can be.

2 Veloster's driven by Rhys Millen and Robbie Maddison, both Red Bull Athletes, qualified to go head to head against the best of the best drivers in the streets of Downtown Los Angeles. 4.5 million pounds of concrete were used to barricade the Rally course with ESPN's live coverage on both Saturdays Super Rally and Sundays RallyCross events.

Both cars ran flawlessly all weekend long allowing Millen to qualify first in the last chance qualifier moving him into Sundays RallyCross main event. 8 cars would take the green start light fighting for the gold medal. Millen would lose 10 precious seconds when David Higgins spun trapping Millen just past the 50 foot gap jump in a narrow ally. Millen would go onto finish 5th.

Overall for 2011, RMR was a winning team taking 3rd in points in the GRC Championship. Their is no doubt in anyone's mind that the 2012 season shows even more potential that these Veloster's can be on top.

There will be spoilers here a caavet. Please read on. Meet Henry VIII as he was as a young man: a political rock star handsome, robust, wild, spoiled, and hot-tempered. Everything he wanted, he got except for that elusive male heir The Tudors (SII) is an absolutely gorgeous visual ode to one of the most controversial chapters in Western political history. The series itself is a dazzling celebration of Tudor-era music (a precursor to our own pop music), stunning costumes, lovely, lusty women and handsome manly men, breathtaking castles and Tudor manors. Season II is even more provocative, dangerous, and sexy than the first season. Bravo, Showtime, for producing such a lush, thoughtful, and beautifully produced series that is above all an intelligent meditation on the shifting nature of politics and the dangers of gross imbalances of political power. I am a literary scholar who specializes in this period and I love the adaptation, despite some of its loose treatment of dates and persons. The series captures the tumultuous spirit of Henry’s era. The series allows us to peer into this astonishing historical moment, the instant when England broke from the Church of Rome. The future of politics and the state of nations would never be the same. Another plus: Henry’s queens are brought to life beautifully by Maria Doyle Kennedy (as the pious and determined Katherine of Aragon) and by the newcomer Natalie Dormer, who excellently plays the controversial Anne Boleyn as a fierce social-climber haunted by her past and troubled by her father’s rabid political manipulations. Dormer’s Boleyn has a look deep in her eyes that shows us that she knows, in her soul, that she is doomed. This is a testament to Dormer as a young actress; she shows us the arc of Anne Boleyn as Anne/Natalie matures from a young and ambitious mistress to-the-king to a neglected, then persecuted, wife and lonely mother (to Elizabeth I, future great queen). JRM is also splendidly original as Henry: brash, lustful, and temperamental. We can believe in his Henry’s burning love for Anne as well as his eventual hatred for her and his willingness to have the mother of his child executed. This series is in my opinion the finest vision of this time period, superior to A Man for All Seasons, Anne of the Thousand Days, the Elizabeth I series with Helen Mirren, and numerous others. This series has sparkle and spirit in addition to rich intelligence (evidenced by its well-composed screenplay), smart casting choices (though Joss Stone is still a question mark for me as Anne of Cleves), and sensational locations. Bravo!
