Looks better than I thought it would. Think it would be better business branding if they chose Black as their primary color with a bit of Gas Gas red trim to differentiate from Honda. Props to KTM. Now they just need to take over Beta and they’ll be 1:1 against the Japanese brands. ...or maybe buy Suzuki and join them. Good luck Glenn Coldenhoff. He’s a good dude and I would love to see him World Champ this year!

That tool Pro Circuit has for straightening bent handlebars is actually an old-school Park Tools bicycle frame straightening tool. Back I the day I used it on many occasions to realign bent frame seat & chainstays. Could also be used as a gnarly self-defense weapon.

Looks to me like the graphic designer was lazy on this one... was he having an artistic block and thought a few spray paint blotches would work? No thanks.

Not taking anything away from Roczen’s awesome rides... Eli was leading in the 2nd Main before it was red flagged, and in front of Roczen in the 3rd when it was red flagged. ...then got bad starts in both restarts. I haven’t heard any media people bring that up, interesting how many have jumped ship to the Roczen-Wagen. Roczen was both fast and lucky in Glendale. ...13 more to go.

Clement Desalle and Romain Febvre

Of all the numbers Febvre could have gone with, why #3??? Maybe a Tomac wanna be...

Thanks Davey for your insight. Great example of taking the high road. You are a scholar and a gentleman.

It’s much better to hear more info regarding your side of the fallout Ping. ...saying it was just fake news left many of us wondering since there was some mud slinging going on. I hope you can work it out with Matthes as well as I thought you were one ... more »

I went off on Ping because he talked crap on one who should have been his good friend - Matthes, and then lied about not doing it. (He responded to my post on Racer X) Then he lied about the situation leaving your Racer X. Maybe you’re okay with it because ... more »

These graphs are great but COME On.... each brand has a color, it’s confusing when you use some other color to represent it. Then change the color again on the next graph. Would it be that hard to match them up???? I quit following them after the 2nd graph.

Yea I was still being a bit of a jerk there. Sorry by the way for my over the top reaction to your Webb article. If the conversation was face to face and I said some of the stuff I did I would say that I got out of line. You did handle it like a pro.

Agree, every other year would ease the costs and boost the anticipation.

Okay so I was wrong on Luongo “moving” the date, but everything else holds true. ...and by the way, Sept18 to Oct 7 is 3 weeks, not 1 or 2. You’re a fool if you don’t think the American teams AND American BASED Riders participation is a key part of this event. ...I’m not just arguing my point for us Americans, but 3 of the Best European racers aren’t going as a result as well. Luongo isn’t helping when he could pull it back to work with THE only other Major Motocross series where racers are coming from. This kind of stubborn and extremely difficult to work with thinking that both you jemcee and Youthstream is the reason why it’s 100% Okay for the U.S. teams/Riders to say F#(k it, not worth it and move on. I would also think all of the GP riders would love to get another 3+ weeks of off season themselves in doing so.

It’s not the Date jemcee, it’s the schedule. The AMA has to end their schedule in August due to TV broadcast schedules and other sports that need the coverage. I have said several times, take a look at the GP schedule. There at least 6 to 8 extra weeks over a 2 on 1 off schedule (which included a 4 week break earlier in the year). I am saying “Hey Youthstream, if you want to partner will the U.S. on just the schedule alone, Move The Date! ...or deal with the fallout. It’s Not an Unreasonable request.

...but it’s not the Olympics. Only the Official Olympic Games are the Olympics, and Motocross isn’t part of it. BMX is, Snowboarding is, Motocross Isn’t. So it’s an All Star’s of Countries Race. If it were held every 4 year, a lot of racers would miss the chance to be the All Star for their county. No NBA All Star passes on being an All Star since the All Stars Games are during the Freakin’ Basketball season. Let just get the schedule fixed. One step at a time.

Yes, the issue is not just them making large amounts of money, but that they need to be providing their service and a fair and reasonable price. ...and maybe I’m old school, but $125 per ticket is not a fair and reasonable price. I’m Pro Capitalism, anti Greedy Gouging (and then the fact that they don’t pay their racers any racing purse or bonuses for racing, that says a lot about their character. Youthstream conducts business like a criminal organization.
