Weege wrote a great article about the health of the sport. 21 riders with factory level support. 2004 only had 10. I previously wrote a topic on this a few months back about the level of support is better today than in the early 2000s, but vitards attacked ... more »

I haven't missed watching a race since 98 and hope I never miss a race, but its obvious things aren't great right now for the sport. Ratings are down, attendence is down, participation is down. If you do not adapt in this world you die.

Same for me to. Had some other buddies who use to live to watch the races not even tune in this year. IMO this sport is on the verge of not even being on tv soon.

I didn't get to a national this year but I will say the racing was a snooze fest this year. I use to love weege and Langston but their announcing made it seem like they were even bored. The tv coverage has went down IMO. Maybe the young bucks coming ... more »

If Harvick is the connection, maybe Busch Beer will jump on board.

If racers now posted videos of partying like MC and Emig did back in the day vital would explode. Nothing but a bunch of hypocrites on here

Great show, most of it was filmed in the Charleston South Carolina area.

People love drama. Why do you think reality tv has been such a hit for the last 15 years and continues to grow?

Motocrossed was a great movie. Worst part of Supercross was having revenge of nerds guy playing a hardcore boss. All I could think about was Revenge of the Nerds. lol

6 brands in the sport supporting riders. My guess that means the brands are moving bikes off the floor. Again vitards will say that I'm an idiot and the world is going to end tomorrow.

Feelings weren't hurt. If I was worried about my feelings getting hurt I wouldn't get on a message board.

Since I have been involved in the sport around 20 years I have always heard we need more factory support for riders. Now we have the most support we have ever had and the sport isn't healthy. I don't get it.

I worry more of these action sports stars from the early-mid 2000s will have the same problem. These guys continued to bash their heads on the ground and get right back up and try again. Worst thing about concussions is rushing back and having another ... more »
