Forgive my ignorance. I know there is a production rule in the US series, is there one for MXGP? How similar is the equipment? I seem to remember back in 1987 that Hannah rode a very works level 125 at the MXDN held at Unadilla (not that it mattered ... more »

I appreciate the responses. I'm not looking for excuses for the US getting beat. I'm simply trying to understand what differences exist. Reed mentioning that the FIM fuel makes the bikes slower is interesting. I wonder what the curve is to learn the ... more »
Added reply in a thread RYAN VILLOPOTO CONFIRMED FOR 2015?? 9/7/2014 5:49 PM
Will be interesting to see for sure. One thing I'm interested in is how much different are the GP bikes from the US bikes? Are the GP bikes more "works"? And if that's the case, how much better will his GP bike be than his US bike? And then... will he ... more »

At the mini-o's one year, I pulled the holeshot in the 85 12-13 class in the TT event. Had Maximoff, Windham, Reynard all behind me. Maximoff got by me on lap 2, quickly followed by Windham and Reynard on lap 3. I was riding really well, keeping those ... more »

Is Durham out at PC? If yes, that's a damn shame. He never got to see his full potential because of the injuries.

Suprised nobody mentioned or showed a pic of Mickey Dymond and his hand cut 6's when he went to Yamaha. Personally, I also dislike the careear number thing but I also understand it's purpose and place in the sport. If Kroc were to change, I think 9 would ... more »

I would have a hard time believing this to be true. I'm 99% positive that Mad Mike Jones married the daughter of the family who owned the track. He has practice FMX stuff set up outside his house there. But stranger things have happened so who knows ... more »

I broke my Talus when I was 14 in the last moto of the regional LL qualifiers at Steel City (didn't even crash, just came down on it wrong). Came out of the cast the Monday of Loretta's and ended up not racing. I re-broke the same exact bone in the same ... more »

So I'm going to assume that Arenacross guys do not count as "Riders earning more than 25 Pro Motocross points in the current or previous year" as I see that McDade is racing +25 class. Also see that Emig is racing +35 and +40 this year, pretty cool IMO. ... more »
