And people love to whine about the price of 4 strokes. Gear prices are ridiculous with this sport. When you work hard for your money it’s hard to let 600$ go towards boots alone. Anyone have a used pair of size 12-13’s?

Interesting article, I mountain bike/ebike more than I moto anymore just because of track and land access, but I'm amazed at how much grip the short little knobbies on my bicycles have. Then I look at my moto tires next to them and think good god they look excessive, is the addition of the...more

I don't see any scenario where they'd add an hour to the night program.

Why not extend the night show an hour instead to allow more time to fix the track? I know the T.V. people would not like this, but hey are golf and football not just as long? Just my 2 cents but i can't imagine riding a 450 with less traction through a tricky rhythm section. I mean even an extra 30 minutes to groom just the jump faces would be good enough, whoops are supposed to be hard.

I think Supercross is big enough now to go to nothing but enclosed Football stadiums. I love rain or shine outdoors at the nationals, but maybe not so much at a Supercross race. People pay to see these riders jump obstacles, not ride on plywood through a 3 foot rut. Supercross is dangerous already, The drying agents needs to at least be left out for now. I think in the future maybe just go to stadiums that are bigger, with a roof. Soon there will be a new stadium in L.A. and Vegas for the finally. What is it 16 or 17 rounds? They have enough good stadiums coming to stay out of this issue.

Nasal decongestant - Broc Tickle banned by AMA -
AMA puts HE14 Irritation-Eyes, Nose, Throat, Skin---Marked

So it is illegal to want to cure a cold if it might make you ride faster - But if we kill everyone and serious impact health and create a toxic

Did anybody notice both Kawasaki's where smoking? maybe boil over, but Eli's bike was doing it in the heat race, then Savatgy's bike looks like it blew up from the way it stopped.

Agreed. Stop crushing kids dreams of winning a title at Loretta’s before they even go through puberty.

Couldn't agree more. Seems there should be some sort of rule limiting modifications to the bikes especially in the amateur ranks. Suspension tuning not replacement, Exhaust and maybe some ignition mods. Would level the field and save everyone money. Not to mention it would...more

Maybe all Loretta Lynn classes should be limited to bolt on modifications only. That way there would not be a unfair advantage to the riders receiving factory support since that's the event all of big sponsors are gathered at looking to sign their next rider. Unfortunately...more

case in point: ALESSI VS VILLOPOTO. Alessi dominated as an amateur having a factory honda 85. once pro on same level equipment villo rose to the top

Excellent points to contemplate, but certainly not "new." Adversity for a youngster builds character---or destroys confidence. There is little "middle ground." Case in point: Colt Nichols NEVER received much support, yet he is on track to be a contender for years to come. His...more

I grew up racing against Rusty Holland, Mike Metzger, Casey johnson, and Brian Deegan on Mini's in the early 90's. I had one bike, my parents did everything they could, it was a new bike, but all stock, and i mean even stock bars until i bent them. I remember lining up next to them thinking how do i even stay with them, most of them had 4 bikes, motor homes, a trailer full of parts, fresh gear, and suspension, motor mods, etc. I was beating them at times, i would win some races, lose others, but i was for sure holding up well with a slower bike. There was a big difference in support for them, they hit most races, i never could travel to make Lorretta Lynn's. The talent was there but only my parents saw it most of the time.

Everybody wanted to snag a ride with R&D, Suzuki, Team Green, the biggest divider was traveling. Not just the bikes but the travel costs are crazy to stay competitive then and worse now. I still went to public school, Dad worked his butt of to make money, still the point here is the extra support, the bikes. Many kids out there could easily beat the top amateurs, given the same bikes to race. That said i think they should limit the mods more in the mini bikes classes. Factories shouldn't get involved until bike bikes when the cost really jumps, especially with four strokes. Take a look at Dungey, he had little support until he got on big bikes, nobody saw that coming. One point you made was you can hear the difference in the bikes, listen to Talon Hawkins R&D Husky mini bike, it sounds like a damn rocket!
Unfortunately for me i out grew mini's at 14, i went on to 125's, still mostly stock, I even made it to the pro level but with no support, racing at that level was super difficult. I went to college always wondering what if? Still the memories live on, my window passed, just like countless other kids struggling to follow that dream.
