Doesn't work. They maybe can run the lap times, but will get buried at the starts. That's just lame competition.

MotoGp is the most popular form of motorcycle racing in the world, crushing SX in global viewership, and drawing crowds that put most all motorsports to shame. It has two support classes, taking up way more of it's program than SX

I've almost always preferred watching corner-carving on the lites. So having a race for them will sell me a ticket.

Hell, remember all the years they were with this guy?

I think given his age, experience level, and continually climbing impressive results, a team has to give him a look.

I'd be perfectly fine to see him battling outside of the top 10 right now.

And I get the feeling here (correct me if I am wrong) from your post and pictures, that you are pretty young, and I agree a YZ125 may be way too much bike for just goofing around on the ranch. I think a TTR, CRF, KLX all may be just more enjoyable for ... more »

I don't want to belittle Jmart's issues one bit, because clearly money isn't always getting to the right people in motocross; but to be 100% clear here: there are broke top-level athletes and grifting "industry-guys" and numerous parasitic coattail-riders ... more »

? It should be way easier to start than your YZ... With the stock hockey-stick starter and more mild compression, I can start mine with my hand (and have done so in awkward situations).

I find it more interesting that all these multi million dollar R&D dollar efforts are hunting back and forth, air to spring to whatever, to try to find something nearly as good for the average rider as the decade-plus old KYB SSS. Maybe fork performance ... more »

The fact that one can manage to hold his 450 open for a split second maybe means a little bit... That is, until the moment some kid with great skills on an 85 rails around him on the outside, wide open over nearly the whole track.

Agree. Motor, swingarm, cross-tube, fork lines are visually appealing on the Aprilia. That's all the important, hard to accomplish stuff. The plastic is cheesey, but an easy fix.

OleTex Perhaps it should be held during a coordinated break in the MXGP and US MX schedules? This is winning talk, here. Bring in the sponsors, make it so. Force all the national organizations talk seriously with regard to international growth.

Of course, if he was in striking distance of a title he would tough out a broken rib. He is not.

I don't blame him for folding up the easy-up, especially with a new ride on the horizon next year, but the races are definitely a lot more watchable when he is in them.
