Reply to Yellow Track Barriers and Rider Safety 8/14/2016 8:08 AM

Yak681, Trey had a point. I believe a member of the track crew put them there. As soon as Jeff Canfield and I saw them we removed them. Not a big fan of haybales along the tracks unless they are wrapping trees and fence posts... DC

Mossy, I tested it myself, ten days before the race. But I'm no scientist or botanist or silica expert... https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=8Vtt0k2QreI The sand passed the test, though I did come away with some arm pump. DC

Thanks for the feedback and the input. We change it up a little every year, whether it's the jump configurations or the soil, and we always seem to send home the right champions -- the fastest and most prepared riders -- unless they have some bad luck ... more »

Reply to Is AMA against MXoN in Glen Helen? 7/21/2016 10:32 PM

This has nothing to do with MX Sports, not sure why we were brought into it. In my personal opinion Glen Helen has earned the 2017 MXoN with those money-losing GP races they have already held. Southern California is the hub of the motocross world and ... more »

Reply to My view of Alex Martin's bike failure 6/19/2016 6:46 AM

Gang, I walked up that hill a half-dozen times over the past few days, It would have been hard to push his bike out even if he hand't just done thirty minutes on an extremely rough track. Alex probably would have won the overall had his bike not expired ... more »

Reply to Trying out facebook live video at High Point! 6/16/2016 5:49 AM

And then there's those pesky and exclusive broadcasting rights that NBC has, so you might want to limit your videoing to amateur day and what's going on in the pits and practice... No matter, looking forward to seeing how this works out. DC

Reply to LL predictions? 6/14/2016 1:33 PM
