Added reply in a thread I can build a new Safety Flagging Light - Opinions Please 6/30/2010 6:40 AM

Tim, what about if the units were operated by individual marshals at each blind spot, sort of like the no-jumping flag we utilize now? Instead of waving the flag, they hit the button? Each lighting unit would have it's own battery, so why not its own ... more »

Honda907, I am not Dave Coombs of the NPG, that was my dad. I am part of MX Sports, and we are doing our best to grow the series collectively with 12 individual promoters. Each of the promoters controls and counts their own gate, and I believe that information ... more »

I walked away from a nice little TV gig after Vance was born a few years back and have not regretted it one bit... Except when I call someone by their wrong name for two hours. DC MX Sports

Added reply in a thread Cairoli wants to race a National in 2010 6/29/2010 7:00 AM

If Stewart is healthy and ready and willing, it would be cool to see him at the MXoN, but that is entirely up to James and The Man. Roger DeCoster has the final say in Team USA, and once James starts racing again, he will make the call. DC MX Sports

Added reply in a thread Ping 101 out of job next year? 6/29/2010 6:38 AM

Ping has a young family and he wants to sound more time with them. He's also got a great gig lined up that he's been working towards for years. We are sly really stoked for him. And yes, he's going to keep writing for Racer X and Racer X Online. I just ... more »

Geoff, I think Stewart will do just fine the day he shows up. Racing SX is not all that different than racing motocross -- look at how fast Reed went last summer after sitting out for maybe three years. Or Townley after sitting out for two full years ... more »

You're right Trip, I think we're doing pretty damn good considering the economy, the global motorcycle market, and the over-abundance of things for people to do with their spare time (like get on a message board and bitch about a sport). The teams, the ... more »

I really think Simon has called him that for so long that it was imbedded in my head as his real name, not his nickname... Oh well. DC MX Sports

Just found out from the source itself that Wil Hahn's real first name is not Wilbur, as I mentioned here after the Budds Creek TV show, but actually William. I have been making that mistake for a few years now and just asked Wilbur himself.... I mean ... more »

Added reply in a thread Bailey is very good today 6/28/2010 8:08 AM

Bailey is the gold standard alright but I gotta give Fro credit too, he's trying hard and he's improved by leaps and bounds in the last couple of years. I enjoy listening to both and I hope we can keep mixing it up in the future... And I can't wait to ... more »

Gang, sorry, they are trying to fix it. It sounded great live online Saturday, so I'm hoping this is just a snafu while uploading here that they can correct and repost soon. DC MX Sports

Eddie, I haven't done my best to make any other series look bad or lesser in comparison. Thats my point, not the total objectivity (or lack thereof) for anyone in this very smakk, very intertwined racing deal. And this is an enthusiasts sport, not true ... more »

Guy B., it's this week's talking points from Geoff's boss, even though this isn't news in that Ken mentioned it a month ago, and his parents want him to stay in Europe and honor his contract with Teka Suzuki for one more year.... I think the kid is doing ... more »

Themtroad, I respect your opinion as a neutral party and think those are some good points. But I truly believe that one global series would mean one half the jobs in motocross, be it for riders, mechanics, technicians, journalists, etc. I have always ... more »

Added reply in a thread GL8 Parade lap crash 6/22/2010 7:01 AM

I think Lightning has a point. The drop off was too close to a corner and too tall. I spoke to Grant about it as well as BT101 and we are going to make them smaller. Grant said it was his fault, but it's our fault too. They should be on faster ski jumps ... more »
