It’s the bare minimum, at least get the riders names right. Especially when it’s one of the main title contenders

Why are you bringing Roczen into it? He wasn’t even there. It would be equally as dumb a decision whoever did it

Added reply in a thread so what’s the real problem here???? 3/12/2022 7:07 PM

Was the track that bad? Anderson tucked the front and under most circumstances would’ve been fine. Webb and Sexton’s crash had nothing to do with the track conditions. Webb just forgot where he was on the track

What Webb just did is one of the dumbest things I’ve ever seen. He already got landed on once, then he gets up and rides around the track for 10 minutes at walking pace with one hand on the bars. He should’ve been black flagged, and the team also should’ve ... more »

I’m all in. Signed up for the championship league, Industry idiots, another money league with some buddies. At least point I have too much on the line not to take it seriously.

And? How is MXGP in any way comparable to F1? You’re either trolling or completely clueless

I understand the model, but the model absolutely f**king sucks

No one is saying that it isn’t important that the sport travels the world. I’m a big supporter of the race in Argentina, they always attract a great crowd and a number of fast local riders, it is a worthy GP venue. 2 races in Indonesia and a GP in Oman ... more »

Quite clearly you are missing something. Most European riders stay in Europe? No shit Sherlock. That doesn’t mean everything is fine here. There are far more Europeans giving it a go in the US than vice versa, that’s for sure

I hope they do, they deserve far better than to have one of their races cancelled mid season with no explanation or alternative. None of the other classes will ever all come together to achieve anything, maybe WMX has a chance

Supercross and the AMA nationals are not amateur series. They get it absolutely spot on

The money it generates it for the riders? Apart from probably 10 people the riders are making fuck all. Rider salaries in MXGP are low because, like I said in an earlier post, the 3 or 4 guys that get moved up to MX2 every year will ride for basically ... more »

Last two rounds should be good 🙄 what a f**king joke. They’ve also got rid of the WMX race at St. Jean in favour of a 125 BluCru race and not given the girls an alternative date. So they are a round down now. At this point it is as if they are conducts ... more »

It’s despite of the current system, not because of it. F1 is a closed shop, invite only race series for posh boys and their rich families and friends, their model can f**k right off, and when it gets there, it can f**k off some more. It’s a genuinely ... more »

I don’t see the pointing out rules in the US as that big of an issue really. It takes most riders a long time to point out, and those who do it quickly are normally worthy of a top 450 ride anyway. Also, if you do get pointed out and don’t get a 450 ... more »

The pyramid doesn’t work well, it’s broken, and it doesn’t create elite level classes at the top, it creates one, for about 30 riders, and if you can’t quite get in that for whatever reason, that’s it, you’re done at 23. EMX 125 I have no problem with, ... more »

It’s about quality and quantity. Why choose one over the other when you could have both? You talk as if everyone in MXGP/MX2 would beat everyone in the EMX classes and that just simply isn’t true. In Mantova in the timed practice sessions there were ... more »

At the time of year they are looking at running they should be able to find 5-6 stadiums in Europe to host a SX no problem if they’ve got the money. I can think of at least 4 off the top of my head that have retractable pitches

And this is exactly the problem, MXGP do not do justice to the amount of talent that is in Europe. Because they put such a financial hurdle into getting into MX2 and MXGP that unless you are on a proper team you can’t do it. So a lot of the talent that ... more »

The product is not great at MXGP right now. I went to Matterley and I left disheartened and disappointed. 23 riders racing around a track that size is really not much of a spectacle. You had a group of 15 that were relatively close together, and after ... more »
