Added reply in a thread RV + IV = No race right ? 3/22/2014 4:20 PM

Not when you have a big plush motorhome, be easy to do, don't you think? Motorhome could even be filled with hookers and blow, no one goes in and checks them. Take a needle, watch practice video, chill out and have a snack

So for the sake of discussion only and not in regards to any team or rider, I think we all know and agree that proper hydration and a proper balance of electrolytes is a key to optimum performance and endurance in sports, would you agree? I think we ... more »

Rule doesn't say "doctor," it says "medical personnel" A paramedic can administer a simple saline IV and would technically qualify as "medical personnel" So, technically, as per the rules, if a team had a "Team Doctor" or "team medical personnel," theoretically, ... more »

b. Once a rider receives such hydration during the meet, the rider will not be permitted to compete in any further events at the meet including, but not limited to, any further practice sessions, heat races, qualifying sessions or final events composing ... more »

The rule came to be, because a rider (Doug Henry) was ill and needed fluid replacement between motos If you're so ill you need fluid replacement by IV, it seems to reason you're too ill to race

Travel thing. Unfamiliar restaurants and just part of the horrors of travel Why I eat at only busy chain restaurants when on the road, I will not do "mom & pop" restaurants or restaurants that are not busy

I believe it goes without saying that everyone hopes he will be OK, but the discussion is also in regards to the rules and/or the application of them.

OK, so again, any rider can take IV's for hydration and electrolyte replenishment prior to hitting the track. So, from today forward, and you're cool with this, if you go into the pits before practice, every rider can be sitting or wandering around with ... more »

So, to clarify, in your opinion, ANY AND EVERY rider should be allowed to take an IV prior to a race if they choose, correct? Rider's meeting would look like an ER, with everyone there and an IV bag hanging next to them, and that's cool because it's ... more »

If you are so ill that you need an IV to compete, you're too ill to compete No different than being too dehydrated to compete, which is why the rule was created in the first place and BTW, the rule came about because a rider had what and took an IV between ... more »

I say it's the day of the event, otherwise, what's to prevent riders from needling up from the moment they wake up in hotel all the way up until practice starts? Man, let's start a new business of selling saline bags and IV's at the races for privateers, ... more »

Added reply in a thread Toronto practice discussion. 3/22/2014 11:23 AM

So it seems now, that, according to the rules, I guess, a rider can now take as many IV bags as they want to fully hydrate and take on electrolytes in their hotel and pretty much at any time PRIOR to the event. Can't BETWEEN races But BEFORE races, all ... more »

Shorty is a professional and known as an excellent tester, because he can hear and feel any and every tiny difference, so you can bet on it that he both felt and heard it, especially in the air when throttled off and the wheel is free spinning.

Problem is (if you want to call it a problem), you are seemingly unaware of the past history as well as the inner-workings of how Supercross works. The suggestions you make are naive and based on what appears to be a total lack of awareness. Then, when ... more »

Then why didn't it happen when the AMA along with Jam Sports tried? Seems they have far more knowledge in how to do it than a rag tag bunch of underfunded teams, riders and OEM's, each with their own personal goal and agendas. Maybe, for once, you realize ... more »

Yeah, easy Go do the research on the Jam Sports fiasco, and tell me how "easy" that went

You expect, KTM (from Austria) and the OEM's from Japan, and independent teams who can barely afford to even field a team, and teams who've basically told the OEM's and everyone else to "fuck off" to somehow go it alone and finance it all themselves? ... more »
