I can tell you're a good rider.It's just so freaking weird to watch. Like a ghost riding around the track.

Jeez, I hope so. I assume they do this stuff, but it's about blanketing local media with press releases, follow-up phone calls and other promotion. Individual people could even contact local newsrooms and ask for coverage- every little bit helps. I feel ... more »

I don't think branding the sport's actual name with a corporation helps. Notice this quote comes from a "company" not a sports association or something. Imagine if football was officially called "Oscar-Myer football." It probably broadens the perception ... more »

You think a pharm company pulled a Lyme disease vaccine because of Jenny McCarthy? Seriously?

People obviously rise out of poverty with all kinds of sports, so I didn't make much sense with that sentence. I should rephrase as; "Isn't it cool how motocross can rise somebody out of humble backgrounds to become a multi-millionaire?" Poverty was ... more »

I expected that response- but if you take basketball, for instance, there is a government-sanctioned path to success through school programs, college scholarships and a sophisticated and well-developed recruiting system focused on just this type of individual ... more »

These two responses show he is still dealing with jealousy. And lesser-thans that think they occupy the same Universe. I don't think you can hype JS7's story too much. And go back to your troll-holes.

This is an older video, but around the 7 minute mark they start talking about where Bubba came from. His mom worked at a gas station and Big James at a Coca Cola bottling plant. How many sports can take people from near-poverty to multi-millionaire? ... more »

I have been a journalist for 22 years, and I am completely horrified by the shitshow journalism has become. During this pandemic they have become arms of the state, for the most part, ratting out everybody they can and completely uninterested in analyzing ... more »

He sold his house anyhow, is what he said on Whiskey Throttle, because he didn't want to live there anymore- he didn't "lose" it. And everybody loses their family in a divorce.

Hopefully she'll be distracted with the controversy over how she removed her own mother from a nursing facility and put her in a premium hotel.

Racing at Tomahawk, WV one time, I came over a blind jump and there was a guy and a KX450 laying in the middle of the track. I had to choose either hitting him or the bike- I chose the bike. Once I got up and going again, I'm riding around and my rear ... more »

You're just trolling now. Your assertion that you know a thing about Ryno's finances or personal situation holds no water. To say "he should have just invested his money" is extremely narrow-minded- everybody's path in life has different obstacles. There ... more »

This is hogwash. Ryno is co-founder of a company that looks to be pretty successful. He's in demand globally for his motocross schools and training a world-class athlete. He's not some loser. Divorce will strip you of most of your wealth and assets, ... more »

It's true that the CIA manufactured and distributed most of the LSD back in the 60s (even though the same government was locking people up for possessing it). They also dosed hundreds of people without telling them- MK Ultra was out of control. The CIA ... more »
