only thing I wished they had done was somehow gotten Deano to go talk some trash to Colt after smoking him on the track.

HAHAH - that was great. I dig this guy A LOT. Such a great personality. I LOL'd on IG where he had a pic of himself and the first guy says "Bro, those jeans look like my sister's!!" and Dean responds with "Oh hell. Must have grabbed the wrong pair when ... more »

seriously - you mean to tell me that a pro that makes his living riding dirt bikes chose a 450 instead of an underpowered 250 when racing AGAINST 450s? Unbelievable.

if he wants to continue Ronnie Mac and make videos and stroll around in the pits doing his thing, knock yourself out. However, he shouldn't be allowed anywhere near a track full of professionals having a great time racing as it completely dumbs down ... more »

truth. Ran RC nitros with my brother, got pissy cause they were a PIA and bought an e-trug. Was helping him at the track at a race, and 20 nitros were firing up under the driver's stand and I told him "My e-trug is easier to mess with, but there's virtually ... more »

Yup - seems like a good guy is behind this idea, and it's certainly well thought out. Only problem for him is assholes like me that will grumble about them forever, even though I know that I'll forever lose the argument cause when your competitor buys ... more »

great idea. great design. Terrible for the sport. I wish the AMA would just ban ANYTHING that has anything to do with the starts and - BINGO - it's an even playing field, completely dependent on skill. Get off my lawn.

Suzuki was just an OEM I was using for reference - I apologize for not being clear. But I bet a HONDA could buy this whole damn company and just lock it in a closet. Without a company like Alta actively doing R/D on a full blown mx e-bike...the loss ... more »

as soon as I read this I thought of that documentary they did on that e-car that Ford (I think?) built. Was stupid popular, so much so that they rounded them all up and squashed them and have never talked about them since because they feared that it ... more »

meh. Even if the ins company argued against the payout, Monster would pay these two guys so fast to make the topic go away. Hell, you know that the Jesse guy would sue the shit out of Monster and put it all over the news, Eli/Savatgy (Monster employees) ... more »

But I'd also guess that there was some discussion about what to do before in various situations before that final main so that there'd be no confusion. Allegedly. Your admission of this is terrifying for this sport. I have said it in other threads, but ... more »

then sending our premier motorcycle teams to compete with our world class athletes in what is admitted to be a "circus" is something that should be talked about. Because there should be no confusion then about why the sport of sx is being increasingly ... more »

so did you two hug it out? (referring to your "Hey, have you got a second?" remark). Hate to say it GuyB, but he ain't the first guy to tire of the way you express your opinions toward YOUR CUSTOMERS. As to the opinion, I tend to agree with our friend ... more »

Started new thread wow. that really sucked. 10/14/2018 7:21 AM

I'm not sure what to say about the "sport" of sx any more. The "mini" class just hit every single jump (save for the one triple in the little rhythm section) that the 450 pros were doing. I mean, I know that the MEC track is supposed to be a hybrid type ... more »

I kinda missed out. I raced/followed '80s mx as a kid which involved renting VHS videos on freeriding and the monthly MXA. I kinda dropped out when I discovered girls for the first half of the '90s so I didn't follow along. Picked back up late '90s and ... more »

this might have the stench of "snowflake" with it: "I didn't win, so please change the event so that I can." Our boys got their asses collectively beat, and a tip of the hat to all the teams that smoked us. They deserved it. I wish SX would go away entirely. ... more »

I'm not even questioning the infraction or violation. His results show he did it, so I guess he did. What is NOT cool is them sitting on their asses for 5 months while the guy's career passes him by. If they want to suspend him for a season or 4 seasons....whatever. ... more »

you're missing my point. His career is being held hostage. Sue the hell out of them for lost wages, lost potential wages, pain and suffering, etc. The point is not to recoup his money but is to shine a giant light on this crap and force WADA to have ... more »
