But Phil, it didn't happen. GEICO advertises in motorsports magazines, on websites, sponsors all kinds of events. Now it appears they are taking an entirely different approach to motorsports and it's not just the team that is losing GEICO. What they ... more »

Yes, we implemented the policy a couple of years ago. The fact that someone left an empty gate didn't seem right, and as a result of the change a lot of guys (and now one girl) have been able to compete in a national. Jordan was the fifth alternate and ... more »

The paddock will be closed to the public, no autograph sessions, limited spectators, and essential team personnel are required to stay under their own tents and wear masks when they are not. The teams have been really proactive with the social-distancing

Haha, no problem, and I’m also just hopeful it happens in March, as well as the 200! DC Racer X

They actually went out after second 250 practice and shaved that down a bit, making it a little easier and less likely to break a wheel... Whole track looks great today, always does at RedBud! And the weather is finally good for a change. DC Racer X

No worries, I appreciate your points, Montesa Man, and I have a feeling that the second turn will have at least one less tree in 2021... DC Racer X

Remember when Justin Barcia hit one at Freestone halfway around the first lap and bounced over into Marvin Musquin, breaking his hand? That was a rolled hay bale that didn't budge an inch. It didn't solve a problem, it created one. DC Racer X

Good take, Nick, and remember, Zach was already "qualified" because the top ten riders in the point standings are automatically in the next race. But he had to ride at least one lap to get his time in and thus settle his pick on the starting gate. Had ... more »

The Rockstar guys only have one bike each on the truck... but you could get a second bike inspected and replace the first one, but not if you’ve started practice on the first one. Once you’ve started the day riding one bike, you can’t switch. Zach never ... more »

I respect your opinion, though I disagree, and welcome to Vital. DC Racer X

Added reply in a thread Osborne Bike Issue and the “Rule” 8/22/2020 7:54 PM

Good point. When it's the 250s that go first, and the B practice is first, we have allowed a rider to ride the A group if he misses his scheduled group but then gets his bike started several times. Today, Zach never started the A practice, and almost ... more »

Added reply in a thread Osborne Bike Issue and the “Rule” 8/22/2020 7:01 PM

Bullshit, we always help people who have bike problems, no matter who they are or what their number... Because of the weather Osborne lost 2 of his 3 chances to get a lap in. He never started the first group practice, and we allowed him to be part of ... more »

Right on, Alpman, we were admittedly overly optimistic that things would change for the better, just as a lot of other sports leagues, conferences and promoters have been. Seeing almost the whole rest of MXGP having to move into Italy is unfortunate ... more »
