Not trying to discredit JT$ because he's way more in the know than I am or will ever be... but CR22 is not included in the current list of MEC riders.

Bogle rode for JGR. Also, JS packed for "vacation" last week. I'd suggest he's in NC.

Added reply in a thread Does Savatgy have something to prove at MEC? 10/10/2019 4:42 AM

Doesn't look like he is racing MEC. Per his Twitter: Nov 5-7 Milan for Just1 - promotional event and not a race?? Nov 9-10 Paris SX Nov 16 - Auckland SX Australia for the last week of November and then home. Anyone know who he is riding for at those ... more »

Added reply in a thread Have you ever used your front brake in the air... 10/9/2019 5:45 PM

I specifically remember using front brake in the air at Frozen Ocean at a regional qualifier. There was a series of 7 jumps I was going 2-3-2 on an 80. Over the middle huck, I'd hit the front brake to drop the front quickly. Worked very well. Rear brake ... more »

Didn't Lechien and Ward try this in 88 at one of the SX rounds? San Diego maybe??

I know it might get real annoying if as a racer, you have a spotter in your ear non-stop. But I do think there is benefit for "race control" to be able to communicate crashes, cross flags, red flags, black flags, or other relevant information.

Daytona should be a mandatory east/west event simply because it's unique.

Added reply in a thread Is it time to change the rules? 10/1/2019 7:55 AM

Do you not think there are deserving riders that would take a ride with TM or Beta and help develop the bike as opposed to going it alone in a privateer effort? Is the TM that far behind Honda and Kawasaki from a retail bike standpoint? Sorry - Quoted ... more »

Started new thread Is it time to change the rules? 10/1/2019 7:15 AM

With the current landscape of Pro Motocross and Supercross, is it time to figure out how to bring more manufacturers to both the SX ad MX series? We've all read about the potential of Suzuki dropping out. There are several guys struggling for rides that ... more »

Excellent post and I agree. I can't help feel slighted though... growing up as a kid and watching the US teams of Bailey, Johnson, Ward, Lechien, Hannah, and the like... the tracks they raced were the best of the best... destination tracks and lifetime ... more »

Basically ANY KX 500 from 1988 to 1994... with the exception of maybe 89 and the blue side plates. The KX 500 might be the sexiest bike of all time.

Back when it was 125/250/500, you had guys drop down to ride the 125 a few times. Jeff Ward in 88 (after riding the 500 in 87), Hannah in 87, Bradshaw 90 (I think).

Added reply in a thread New format for MXoN 9/25/2019 7:05 AM

About the only change I could see right now is dropping the "open" class and just running 450/250. You could either have 2 riders total (1 each) or 4 riders total (2 each). As much as I hate to say it, dropping to only 2 riders might help improve the ... more »
