WFO stated above,"Gnarly WHOOPS used to be what riders and spectator raved about. Now you dont hear about them at all." Heck, they even dumbed down the Daytona Supercross. I hope the Atlanta races have very wet dirt, that's the only way a track gets

Surprised Tomac didn't say anything about the constant track grooming? Supercross tracks used to break-down so much that doing the triple every lap was almost impossible. When you "dumb it down", everyone goes the same speed, and timed practice creates

Do you guys feel that Factory Contingency being paid to “B” and “C” Classes causes the “A” rider deficiency shown below? Amazing turnout for Open C , 250 C and Super Mini. It used to be advantageous to turn “Expert” as fast as possible to race for money,

............on either fast lap, they were heaters. It's almost like they seek out the riders who are JUST RIDING AROUND. I don't think they showed three "fast laps" in the whole 15 minute A Group session .

Added reply in a thread Ama Amateurs, does it need a refresh? 12/30/2020 4:40 AM

There are absolutely too many classes at local motocross events. You used to need two bikes to race two classes. At the local level motocross events, Contingency money should ONLY be paid for "Expert" classes. That way there is no incentive to stay B, ... more »

user760a and Mouse153 you are incorrect. It is in fact MX Sports that keeps the severely outdated “double-displacement” rule in professional motocross racing. The AMA permits equal displacement, and has for several years.

Hopefully, MX Sports is getting rid of the ridiculously outdated double-displacement rule. These will go down as the dark ages of Professional MX. That ridiculous rule inadvertently killed the BEST PLATFORM EVER, the 250cc two-stroke.
