It does sort of look like it, Ferrari symbol/ logo but they never make bikes... think I am correct in saying somewhat. Maserati did I think in maybe the 1950's, being another interesting car manufacturer, that maybe one wouldn't have thought ever made ... more »

May as well make EMX250 and MX2 just one class really - if the age limit in both is 23! May make for a full grid also, in MX2 that is, EMX250 had more than a full grid! Many good riders with nowhere to go- other than this new 2T Championship, may even ... more »

Putting an age limit on EMX250 maybe is okay but to have the same age limit in MX2 ? So when some of them age out of EMX250, then to step upto MX2 they won't be able to because they are too old also for that class! That doesn't make sense! Where do they ... more »

I could accept the EMX250 age limit restrictions if they lifted the MX2 limits! Some riders for whatever reasons may need or want to stay in 250's MX2. Some of them are fine riders but just not suited to 450's etc (Teams/ Injuries or physical size). ... more »
