Almost every rider is sleeping in a tent at the track because the nearest hotel is 100 kilometres away (about 60 miles) and Pourcel just posted on Facebook that there is a huge rainstorm at the moment ...

MX-Life is back to using Pay Pal for subscribing to GP webcasts.

Since they went to their new payment system and got rid of the Pay Pal option I had not subscribed to a GP. Franky I trust Pay Pal, I do not trust MX-Life, (or Youthstream) with my credit card info. But I finally decided before the last GP that I would relent and use the new payment system. It did not work! My payment failed to process! I had never had that problem before with the old Pay Pal system. I complained big time to them and I think a lot of other past GP subscribers did also. Today I got an email from MX-Life which in part said the following,

Dear mx-life.tv member,

due to the wish of many customers to pay directly by a credit card we changed the payment system on mx-life.tv a few weeks ago. Although it was impossible to use PayPal at the beginning, we were working hard to improve our payment process. From now on, we are able to offer you PayPal again as one of the options.

With the new system you are able to select multiple now events at and they will be booked on your mx-life.tv account all at once. After you've made your selection, fill in your account data and choose the kind of payment you prefer.

I loved Russia when I went there for a holiday, best country I have been to yet. A must for anyone wanting to see the world. Oh and check out club Metro in St Petersberg, never in my life would I have thought that I would be bombarded & chatted up by 6' models all night !

I disagree with a lot of the things Youthstream does, but I think having GP's in different continents/far away countries is kind of cool. It has got to be an expensive exercise for the teams though.

I thought most of the riders usually travelled to the GP's in their motor homes? Is the Russian round too far away for that? Sleeping in a tent for a weekend is not exactly 3rd world anyway.

You might have better equipment KlootZak, but I would expect those guys are still pretty damn fast. That is the only thing that should matter.

According the google maps using Lommel Belgium (home base for many riders) as a starting point and the GPS coordinates of the track it is 2889 KM (1795 miles) and 34 hours drive. The track is northeast of Moscow.

But if they took their motorhomes to last weeks GP in Latvia the drive would be 1317 KM (818 miles) to the Russian GP. For reference Lommel to Latvia is 1879 KM (1167 miles).

Looking at the mileage I would guess that the Latvia and Russia rounds would be fly away races for the riders due to the distance from their home bases.

First MX2 qualifier is now available on MX life tv. Dirt looks a little like Sweden from a tv point of view at least, nice and loamy in some corners but then very hard pack and slippery in other places. Definitely tricky that's for sure. Edit: After watching MX1, track seems a lot more loamy. Respectable crowd size apparently, hopefully even more on Sunday.

Seems like we've had an extra amount of mud races this year.

Ok, thanks for the info. Please excuse my ignorance. New Zealand is only 1600km long from top to bottom, so it is hard for me to have any sort of perspective on those kind of distances.

Ok. 15 seconds a lap is a lot. Riders that far off the pace could be a hazard. In the NZ nationals, if you are more than 110% slower than the average lap time of the top ten, you do not qualify. Perhaps they could implement a rule along those lines in the GP's. It could make the field pretty small when there are only 19 entries though.
