That's SE72 holding a ballerina in my sig photo. I think I grabbed it off of here years ago. Always a fan and I hope he recovers soon and gets back to doing the things that one of "the greatest of all time" in the world of MX do.

Is that a steel body or are the F350’s aluminum now like the 150’s and 250’s?

Yes but these photos do seem to indicate that the larger, more international crowd at the MXdN were better at controlling their trash than the usual Americans are at the National.

Ok, an amateur race explains the carnage better

. One guy was hauled out past us on a stretcher with a lower leg injury I think (he was sitting up). Another guy came up from the pits to spectate with his arm taped to his chest and another one ... more »

I was in Boise visiting my daughter and we went to the race. There's usually alot of "incidents" in endurocross but the carnage got so great during the pro LCQ that they actually red flagged the race as it spilled over into two lanes of the track. We ... more »

What happened to the Silenthawk military program that I thought Alta was participating in? I was hopeful that a military contract would help them “float the boat” so they could get up and running.

During the 2025 EX (Electrocross) season spectators will be able to interact with the racing activities. This will be done by downloading an app onto their smart device. If a rider does something that the fans don’t like they can give the rider a thumbs ... more »

It also seems pretty stupid to retire from competing in something you enjoy when your on top because you think it somehow preserves your "record". To me thats a sure sign of lowly evolved ego. I can understand stepping away if your burnt out on the training/racing ... more »

KTM should put him on a two stroke like he raced ar RBSR at a few rounds. Gives KTM exposure to their two stroke models, scratches his itch and will bring in the taliban to the races. He's shown he's good on the two strokes and with his RBSR bike he'd ... more »

Yes; mountain bikers are on trails that horse riders used and horse riders hate them for that. Now e-mountain bikers are on the trails so the mountain bikers and the horse riders hate them. So add e-dirtbikes and they'll be hated by the e-mtn bikers, ... more »

Had a friend that had one very similar just in silver. 402 BBC, cowl induction and a four speed. Pretty neat car/truck. Check out www.lefthandutes.com for a company in Denver that imports and converts Holdens to left hand drive for the US market. I think these are ... more »

Unfortunately the spectators are the one with least influence into the nature of the racing that they "pay" to see under the Feld/AMA/MX Sports formats. I like what Red Bull presented and kudos to whomever got the two stroke concept rolling. KTM put ... more »

It may be tough to prove it was fixing. While it was plainly apparent that Savatgy let ET by, he's been in this exact situation before with Osbourne and got knocked down and lost a championship as a result. I'd say he could claim he did it just to make ... more »

He's still on a high from being top finishing American at the MXdN and figures he'll go kick ass at MEC and show these "kids" how it's supposed to be done.

Added reply in a thread (Edit: apologies to the people I've offended by calling Redbud a sand track)Anyone know why Redbud became a sand(IER) track? 10/8/2018 3:55 PM

I'm saying that if it were a very muddy track like might have occured if Red Bud hadn't added substantial sand to the track, then I feel the Euros would have still had the upper hand. Their worldwide racing program allows these guys to race in so many ... more »

Pretty wise of the Ritchie's to increase the amount of sand given the questionable weather for October in southern MI. It still provided what appeared to be a decent racing surface so the event wasn't a complete mudfest. Even if the sand hadn't been ... more »

If I remember correctly, the lots around the Saint Louis dome sting you pretty hard for parking during the SX events. And if there's rain (which seems likely) those lots may require a lot of work to fix back up and re-seed.
