Added reply in a thread The blue/gold No.1 plate.. historical question. 7/26/2021 7:15 AM

When Bailey wore it in the eighties it was because he was the Wrangler-backed AMA Grand National Champion, where they combined points in SX and MX for one "overall" grand national champion. Then Wrangler stopped sponsoring it and the concept went away. ... more »

Plons was an excellent photographer and a really good guy. He always stayed above the old US-vs-Europe fray and just enjoyed shooting racing and cycling. He was a pleasure to work with. Godspeed. DC Racer X

Added reply in a thread Washougal TV schedule 2 week delay EDIT: MAV TV to show 2nd motos live 7/20/2021 9:21 AM

NBC Sports has the long delay because of the Olympics, so we asked if we could go ahead and show all four moths live on MAV-TV, which they okayed, so all four motos live on MAV-TV as well as Peacock from Washougal.

Added reply in a thread Did Craig get docked ? 7/18/2021 5:56 AM

I just asked Jeff Canfield how it all shook out. Yes, Craig was penalized 1 point, and after watching again Plessinger did as well. Each were penalized 1 point. And though there wasn’t any video of it Barcia, he was penalized 1 point as well after the ... more »

Live window for NBC is 2 p.m. CT and they want to show the 450s, so we had to switch it up this week. DC Racer X

Good to have you back Boomslang, I'm sure that was a gnarly deal... Lost a couple friends and a neighbor, all younger than me, to COVID. Thankfully it's almost over. DC Racer X

Added reply in a thread Millville Race Day Schedule Change 7/12/2021 8:47 AM

They flip them so that the second 450 moto hits the live NBC network window of 2:00 p.m. CT, and they prefer showing the 450 moto as compared to the 250 moto. DC Racer X

Added reply in a thread Millville Race Day Schedule Change 7/12/2021 8:28 AM

I will call NBC and make sure they come on at the right time to capture the 250 A and 450 A qualifying groups, thanks for pointing this out! DC Racer X

Added reply in a thread Roczen and Ferrandis lost points? 7/6/2021 8:31 AM

We chose red and white because they resemble red cross flags as well as the red flag that halts a race early. Also, yellow, green, white, blue and checkered are already out there for other reasons... And we have six sets of lights that put up that flash ... more »

It’s at the discretion of the referee, just as it says in the rule book. In this case I agree with him… DC Racer X

Added reply in a thread Roczen and Ferrandis lost points? 7/4/2021 10:02 AM

One position each would have hurt Ferrandis worse--he would have lost three points to Kenny's two. And he tried to check up. It would have also moved Plessinger up two spots to gain five points. All of that probably came into the referee's decision. ... more »

I believe if it were 30th place it would probably have to be a position, but in this case you had first and second both jumping, but one guy checked up and the other sent it. I believe the referee thought that penalizing each a spot was too harsh--it ... more »

There was a WOG flag being waved going into the corner before the jump, as well as one before the jump. Here's a screen grab someone posted yesterday...

I don't believe the part about them moving around and having multiple tasks is accurate, Kirk. The officials decide where to place them and they stay there. But it takes a second for the official on the back side of a big blind jump like that to radio ... more »

Sorry, happy hour on the east coast, and I have a blessed weekend off... I can tell you why RV left for Europe: He decided to retire at the end of the 2014 Supercross season, in May, because he was burned out on racing. He said his knee was hurt, despite ... more »
