    Glad he is speaking his mind! He definitely isn't an over trained PR robot. IMO the Utah national was not fun for me to watch on TV. Not sure if it was the track, the camera angles or what. I just wasn't that entertained. Maybe I'm just a little spoiled from Red Bud, Millville, Washougal and such....

    I dont understand. The riders dislike every track or specific every new track. USA is huge, why is it so hard to find tracks, i mean tracks that actually riders like and make them into nationals? Poltics? But why build tracks that riders dont like at all? Money is a big problem i guess. They hated elsinore, UTah track was bad? Why not go back to tracks that we know people like, Glen Helen ? I miss the old schedule. I can understand the problem, its not easy for the promoters but still they pick venues like this? Not to disrespect the owners of the tracks but why would you want to race there if the riders who putting their life on the lines dislikes it?

    They build these tracks at new facilities because they bring in more advertisement money for the promoters. The riders are an afterthought when it comes to track design. All they care about is how much money they can make on the weekend.

    I dont believe they care about money only. This sport is dangerous, and if the tracks are , they should speak it out loud. But i understand the advertisement. Still sucks that places like glen helen and Southwick is of the schedule ..
