Adversity in life is unavoidable. But visualizing long-term goals and executing a plan is crucial to overcoming these ever-present obstacles. AC himself, along with Pro Circuit’s Mitch Payton, share a retrospective view of his career along with a strategy for the future.

Rossi Podiums in Qatar

Ethika Familie Moto GP legend had a great start to the season in Qatar. After qualifying eighth, the seven-time premier class champion recovered to third in the race, finishing less than a second behind race winner Andrea Dovizioso and second-placed Marc Marquez.

Rossi said the result proves he still has what it takes to cut it at the front of the MotoGP field, despite the increasing challenges of staying fit approaching his 40s. Stay tuned for a new VR 46 collection dropping later this year!

The Real-Life Diet of Ace Hood

From GQ

Ace Hood, the man behind jams like “Bugatti” and “Hustle Hard”—both of which are guaranteed to get you ridiculously amped at the gym, even when you didn’t realize you needed it—is not a professional athlete. He is, however, in insanely good shape, which is all the more impressive given that “staying in insanely good shape” is not a part of Ace Hood’s job description.

You’re out there 20 deep, just a brotherhood of dudes. No gang shit. There’s like this . . . freedom you can’t get from nothing else.”

Meek, the fiercest and most prolific rapper to come out of Philadelphia in two decades – millions of albums sold, multiple high-end beefs provoked, and one very public breakup with Nicki Minaj – picks at a bulbous clump of vending-machine pasta in the visitors’ room of the Chester state prison. It’s a place of emasculated, tube-lit sadness: men in orange jumpsuits sitting with their loved ones, barred from leaning close enough to touch them. Meek, by his own design, spurns all visits from anyone besides his lawyers and a few friends. “I won’t let them come,” he says of his family, a huge and intensely close tribe in Philadelphia, about 15 miles east of these walls. “If they see me like this – fucked-up beard, hair all ganked – then it’s like I’m really in here. Which I’m not.”

Mikey Garcia wins big in Texas

Last Saturday in San Antonio, unbeaten world champion Mikey Garcia (38-0-0, 30 KOs) faced Russia’s Sergey “Samurai” Lipinets (13-1, 10 KOs) with the IBF world super lightweight title on the line.
