||Established in 1989, Works Connection continues to produce quality products for all your moto needs.
Started in my garage in 1989 and found a niche for some one of a kind items that I could not find for my own bike. Was able to get some of our products on some Factory bikes in 1990 and we were off and running. It is my passion and that makes going to work every day very easy. Looking forward to see what the next 20 years brings!

EVS, the Original Protective Gear Company, was founded in 1985. Since then, we’ve continued to make the most technologically advanced safety gear in the action sports industry.
Every year, action sport athletes are pushed to higher levels than ever before and the safety equipment used to protect these athletes allows them to go faster and jump farther. With the increased speed and danger, EVS is constantly evolving to produce the safest and most innovative products.
As the EVS story goes, a motocross rider injured his knee one too many times and decided that the everyday pain he was going through was just too much. Out of this, the idea of making a product that will protect an athlete’s knees (along with the rest of their body) while riding was born. This was the birth of EVS and the future of innovation and advanced technology.
EVS’ first product, the AMX-5 knee brace, has been worn by some of the world’s most prestigious athletes and was the building block for EVS’ most comprehensive protective gear line ever. EVS is fully dedicated to providing superior protection for athletes of all sorts in the action sports world. In addition, we’re constantly developing and expanding the line to help protect you at all levels of participation. From beginner to pro, we’ve got you covered!
Over the last two decades, EVS has focused on growing the product line and adding newly enhanced protective gear to the catalog. For 2011, you’ll see an all-new lineup including the RS8 Pro knee brace and the F2, a full functioning modular chest protector. From head to toe, EVS is there to keep you safe every step of the way.
With the same dedication athletes put into their sport and the endless amounts of blood, sweat and tears, EVS works just as hard putting the spotlight on safety and you.

Established in 1975 and headquartered in Southern California, Oakley is one of the leading sports brands in the world. The holder of over 600 patents, Oakley is continually seeking problems, solving them with inventions and wrapping those inventions in art. This philosophy has made Oakley one of the most iconic and inimitable brands on the market. Oakley is famed for its insuperable lens technologies such as High Definition Optics® (HDO®) which it incorporates into all of its sun and prescription eyewear as well as goggles. Oakley has extended its leadership position as the world’s leading sports eyewear brand into their apparel, footwear and accessories collections. Laser focused on the consumer, Oakley has both Men’s and Women’s product lines which target the Sports Performance, Active and Lifestyle consumers. Oakley is a subsidiary of Luxottica Group (NYSE: LUX; MTA: LUX). Additional information is available at www.oakley.com
Oakley invents each new product with a design philosophy called sculptural physics: the discipline of solving problems with science and wrapping those solutions in art. Supported by an infrastructure that includes the latest tools of technology, Oakley engineers and artisans continue to expand the company’s array of product categories.
As the undisputed leader in performance eyewear, Oakley continues to advance sport technology and redefine the lifestyle market with patented optical innovations. Numerous patents have been awarded to the inventions behind the company’s High Definition Optics® (HDO®). HDO® virtually eliminates the problems of ordinary lenses, including distortion that bends light (so objects aren’t really where they appear to be) and optical flaws that magnify images in the manner of prescription lenses made for somebody else.
Eyewear is our passion. Some may say we’re obsessed and that’s okay. Since 1978, Oakley has led the way in maximizing lens style and technical performance. Right now, it’s only getting better for you. Oakley polarized lenses are engineered with a liquid infusion process that bonds the polarizing filter at the molecular level, eliminating the haze and distortion found in conventional technologies. Below are seven exclusive Oakley technologies that put our polarized lenses at the top of the game. We make the difference, and you reap the benefits when you strap a pair of Oakleys on your head.
Oakley offers a comprehensive line of ophthalmic-specific frames and corrective sun lenses that are recognized as some of the best prescription optics available. Full service labs in the U.S., Europe and Asia bring the world's best optics technologies to local markets. The company’s prescription lenses are offered in a full spectrum of colors, polarization options and performance coatings. Technologies include metal frames with shape memory; Color Inherence for lenses that never fade; OAKLEY ACTIVATED BY TRANSITIONS™ lenses that darken and lighten automatically; the world’s first true interchangeable prescription lens; and the Oakley Rx system that maps light rays in a 3D grid to achieve precise coordination between the eye and the entire lens surface.
Sports categories that rely on Oakley goggle technology include motocross, snowboarding, skiing, BMX and mountain biking. Launched in 2006, OAKLEY STOCKHOLM™ was created specifically to offer women the ultimate in goggle performance technology. The company’s 3D cranial geometry ensures a precise fit, and innovations such as ram-air surge ports provide fog-cutting airflow that is augmented with F3 anti-fog coating. Optically correct Oakley goggle lenses are engineered to maximize peripheral and downward vision while optimizing impact protection. In addition, a legacy of decades in motocross has resulted in the most optically advanced tear-off system in the industry.
Oakley recognized that the future of fashion includes technology. The revelation that an audio system should be close to the ears, not tethered from the hip, led to the invention of Oakley THUMP – the world’s first digital music eyewear. The design eliminated wires by seamlessly integrating a music player and earphones with a performance sunglass frame. Two more eyewear inventions, RAZRWIRE™ and O ROKR™ let users enjoy stereo music and wireless cell phone connectivity via next-generation Bluetooth® technology. Featuring the unsurpassed clarity of HIGH DEFINITION OPTICS®, these products let the wearer stay connected to calls and music while hiking, biking and doing virtually any activity where cords and wires would get in the way.
Engineered to optimize performance and comfort for professional athletes, Oakley apparel designs are coveted also by the lifestyle market. The company utilizes membrane technologies that maintain waterproof yet breathable barriers. Temperature is controlled with reversible heat storage, a science developed for astronauts. Rejecting the flat cutouts of conventional garment design, Oakley uses CAD/CAM digital sculpturing to achieve the comfort and fit of contours that accent the female form. Additional technologies range from the temperature control of inflatable insulation systems to the impact protection of Bio Foam panels.
In addition to a full line of sandals and premium golf shoes, Oakley offers footwear for snow, hiking, motor sport racing and military applications. The company’s NET SHAPE™ TECHNOLOGY utilizes CAD/CAM engineering to integrate all shoe components for superior durability, fit and comfort throughout the full range of motion. Additionally, Oakley invented RED CODE™, a mid-sole system that calibrates performance for each sport by absorbing ground forces at progressive rates to optimize stability, dynamic shock attenuation and energy return.
Oakley offers a full line of accessories designed for efficiency, comfort, convenience and style. The company’s backpacks and bags are engineered with ergonomics, reinforced against punishing abuse and enhanced with premium utility features. Products are optimized for specific uses, such as the company’s surf pack that features a removable wet/dry compartment and changing mat. Oakley’s unique sculptural design produces never-before-seen aesthetics in accessories that range from wallets and belts to surfboard bags, purses and eyewear cases.
Oakley entered the wristwatch market years ago with an invention called the O ENGINE™, an innovation that allows an INERTIAL GENERATOR® to convert motion into electricity. Today, the company produces a full array of timekeeping instruments including OAKLEY MINUTE MACHINE™, a Swiss-made chronograph with 13-jewel movement and the ability to measure cumulative time, intermediate time and split time. Known for exquisite dimensional sculptures of lightweight titanium and surgical grade stainless steel, Oakley’s quartz/analog line blends definitive styling with the precision of Swiss movement. Innovations like the company’s GMT wristwatch offer premium features such as the ability to set local time anywhere on earth by adjusting a World City hand.

The Lucas Oil AMA Pro Motocross Championship features the world’s fastest outdoor motocross racers, racing aboard the best bikes each factory offers, on the roughest, toughest tracks in the world. Motocross racing is survival of the fittest as well as the fastest every weekend; it’s where legends like Ricky Carmichael, Jeremy McGrath, James Stewart, and Ryan Villopoto were built.
The newest member of the Alli family of action sports, Motocross is the original extreme action sport, and the Lucas Oil AMA Pro Motocross Championship is the pinnacle of pure motocross. The 12-rounds series, sanctioned by AMA Pro Racing, begins in California on Memorial Day weekend in May and ends in Pennsylvania on Labor Day weekend in September. It includes stops at the premier motocross racing facilities in America, with events in Colorado, Texas, Massachusetts, Washington, New York, Maryland and Michigan. The pro riders meet up on Saturday afternoon, with competition divided into two classes: one for 250cc bikes, and one for 450cc machines. Also, eight of the rounds feature the rapidly-growing Pro Women’s Motocross Championship, and the final round features Pro ATV Motocross.
Each track presents its own unique blend of jumps, hills, corners and whoops, but all the races run under the same format: two thirty-minute-plus-two lap motos (races) per class, with the scores from each race combined to determine the overall winner. The competition also tests fitness, as motocross at this speed is arguably the most physically demanding sport in the world.
The AMA Pro Motocross Championship began in 1972. Back then, American riders were still learning the ropes from their European counterparts who invented the sport. They learned soon, though, and ultra-competitive riders like Bob Hannah, Marty Smith, Jimmy Weinert, Tony DiStefano, and Kent Howerton pushed the sport to new heights.
By the early-1980s, American stars were leading the way, as the likes of Rick Johnson, Broc Glover, Mark Barnett, Jeff Ward, Johnny O’Mara, and David Bailey met to battle at every round, surpassing the European masters in speed and technique.
Those men paved the way for modern legends like Jeff Stanton and Damon Bradshaw, Jeremy McGrath and Jeff Emig, and of course Ricky Carmichael, who became known as “the GOAT,” which stands for “Greatest Of All-Time,” after his amazing run at the top landed him ten consecutive AMA Pro Motocross Championships.
Motocross fans are a unique breed of action sport consumer – edgy, energetic, enthusiastic, and athletic. Motocross is a lifestyle sport, and for 12 weekends each summer, the best athletes on the planet do battle on the toughest tracks in the land. The real winners are the thousands of fans who get a spot at the fence and cheer for their heroes through every second of the action. 2011 will mark the historic 40th season of American Motocross.

Buchanan, Michigan’s RedBud is the centerpiece of the Lucas Oil AMA Pro Motocross Championship. Located just above the Michigan-Indiana state line, RedBud is among the most highly regarded motocross tracks in the world, and July Fourth weekend there is one of the region’s biggest events in general. Located in the beautiful rolling hills of southwestern Michigan – a state with an affinity for off-road recreational vehicle use – RedBud has bragging rights to claim the largest attendance of any U.S. motocross race, year after year. With just the right soil mix, plenty of room for passing, and the biggest jump on the circuit - the infamous LaRocco’s Leap, named after local legend Mike LaRocco - RedBud is the top motocross destination in a region that loves its motorsports. And the loyal Michigan fans’ chants of “Red Buuuuud!!!” are well-known throughout the motocross world.
One winter nearly forty years ago, Valparaiso, Indiana’s Gene Ritchie took a trip to Buchanan for a snowmobile race. He rode around the property, imagining that a great motocross track could be carved into the hills and fields. When that property came up for sale in 1972, Ritchie pursued his dream of creating a national-caliber motocross track. He and his wife, Nancy, found some willing partners and purchased the property. The Ritchies, the Pattersons, and the Millers built their dream track and began holding races in 1973.
RedBud held its first AMA Motocross National in 1974, and it was won by another local motocross star, Hadley, Michigan’s Mike Hartwig. The facility also hosted Trans-AMA races each fall, often featuring battles between the world’s best rider at the time, Roger DeCoster, and America’s best, Bob “Hurricane” Hannah.
Within a few years, the original partners moved on and the Ritchie family relocated to Michigan to become full-time motocross promoters. Gene opened a bike shop, Red Bud Cycle, selling Bultacos and Maicos near the track entrance. The shop mechanic, a local teenage MX racer, became the centerpiece of the Friday night MX intermission shows; that teen was the late “Wheelie King”, Doug Domokos, who went on to set world records and wow fans around the globe with his wheelie shows and spectacular stunts.
Other stars emerged from the RedBud amateur races, too, most notably the Bomber, Mark Barnett from nearby Bridgeview, Illinois, Michigan’s five-time Women’s National Champ Lisa (Akin) Wagner (now on staff at RedBud!), six-time AMA MX and SX Champ Jeff Stanton and of course, “the Rock”, Mike LaRocco.
Also, since 2005, RedBud has played host to the second round of the Monster Energy Triple Crown of Motocross, a series-within-the-series where a rider can earn a $50,000 bonus if he sweeps all three rounds. Over the years, only Ricky Carmichael and James Stewart have managed to pull it off. For 2009, the Monster Energy Triple Crown of Motocross returns again to RedBud (as well as High Point and Budds Creek) and will be shown live on NBC.
RedBud is also one of four rounds on the 2009 Lucas Oil AMA Pro Motocross Championships schedule which will host the FMF Two-Stroke Invitational, which will bring back the sights and sounds (and pre-mix smell) of two-stroke motocross bikes. Check it all out on July Fourth weekend, 2009, at RedBud!
