Added reply in a thread What do you guys want to see in race coverage? 12/11/2013 12:12 PM
I think the job you're doing is great... the only thing I could fathom you could improve would be providing improved real time pictures and results. But that has to be tough, I'm sure. If I could suggest ANYTHING in the world, I'd do a "fan/member perspective ... more »
Added reply in a thread When did you first learn about Mammoth MX? 12/11/2013 12:06 PM
One of the few tracks I never got the chance to race that I really wised I had. The others are Carlsbad, Unadilla, and Washougal.

Pure speculation on my part but... One of the benefits for Phil in this is most likely he is a paid employee. I obviously do not know the details, but my guess would be he gets a check from JGR weather he races or rides the bench. There is something ... more »

IMHO, if this is the direction the sport is going, then I think you need to offer the premier class(es) AND a support class. Guys like Nicoletti would race the support class (sort of JV or AA thing) and be called up to fill in if/when a need arises. ... more »

Plastic changes over time... yeah, maybe a little bored. LOL However, here's a good question. What manufacturer will be the next to introduce a bold color change? Think Suzuki between 90 to 91 when they abandoned the yellow/blue, Yamaha when they went ... more »

Had an 85 Ford Econoline with the 300 straight 6. Thing was a beast. Had well over 350,000 miles and not a single problem. Even made the mistake of running it without oil for 3000 miles and it just kept going without issue (shocked the heck out of me ... more »

I love seeing people who still get custom paint jobs. I wish we could see the pros get back to this more. The lids of the late 80's and 90's were awesome.

I don't MTB because we don't have anywhere to do it down here in south GA. Plus, my bike is old. It's a Mongoose Threshold I bought in 96 to ride at school:

Looks like they took a few cues from the MEC track design... not quite joker lane, but they have several tracks with "option lanes." It also seems that a few of the tracks are more high speed like the MEC and I love the old Pontiac style turn at Detroit. ... more »

What might be cool would be to run this as a weekly made for TV event on Wednesday or Thursday nights prior to each SX event. It could easily be done under the lights. Run the early qualifiers off air and show highlights... then may have 2 or 3 rounds ... more »
Added reply in a thread Milestone SX Pics with J-Law, Tomac & More 12/5/2013 10:48 AM
That gear J-Law is wearing is awesome! Relly like the old school look. I also like the plain white gear with no logos. Something about clean and simple appeals to me.

Chad Reed has been tasked with track release and has decided to hold the world hostage via Twitter, as he did with his bike selection. Expect 100 threads on Vital soon.

My mistake. I was looking at the national numbers and failed to think they were based on the previous year results. He rode 125 in 85 to set his 86 number. Still cool posters. HA!

I think moving to contracts like this is what you will see more of as we continue to grow outside sponsorship.

Also, there are yellow plates on the Yamaha #36. So that would lead me to believe it's a 490, so could it be Tom Carson in 1985? Billy Frank was a 125 guy and Burdette was a 250 guy in 86. Neither scored any 500 points. Just looking at pictures, the ... more »

From the MX History on Pulp MX: 1986 - #93 Brian Manley, #36 Steven Burdette (Billy Frank was #37) 1987 - #93 Greg Torgerson, #36 Bader Manneh However, for some reason, I thought the #93 picture looked like Mickey Dymond based on the MS gear, but I'm ... more »

This photo is not of the MXON. It's of the USGP. Notice the lack of skunk stripes on the helmet.
