New thread Supercross Series Format 5/2/2021 11:47 AM

One of the things I do like is the races that host over multiple days. It seems like a logistics positive for the teams and is likely cheaper overall. I'd still like to see more total venues but maybe 2 or 3 stops should be multiple event races moving ... more »

New thread 2 rounds in and its anyone's game... 1/20/2021 5:09 AM

So round 2 allowed Eli to get right back into the mix. If my calculations are correct, he is only sitting 4 points off the lead of Roczen. Absolute best case scenario after his round 1 performance. Having 3 completely different guys on the podium has ... more »

New thread Ironman Mudder as well? 8/24/2020 9:40 AM

Keeping an eye on Tropical Storm Laura, the models show it hitting the area around Ironman as a tropical depression late Friday/early Saturday. Hopefully, the track crew buttons things up ahead of time and the don't do any riding or rippng until the ... more »

New thread If they have to race SX without fans... 5/5/2020 4:51 AM

Trying to think outside the box (stadium?) here... Why not just use the different practice facilities? Without fans in the seats, stadiums will lose out big time. Would it make sense to run events at different practice facilities instead? Perhaps limit ... more »

New thread Factory Honda Color 1/13/2020 10:27 AM

Is the red on the factory Honda brighter this year? It reminds me of the JMB 1992 bikes. Would look good with blue plates and yellow numbers IMO.

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 »

New thread Ironman track layout 8/21/2019 9:34 AM

Seems like some pretty big changes to the layout this year. The start is different and they took out the big uphill, elevator type jump. They actually only go on top once it looks like. Anyone have any insight as to why they made these changes?

New thread Yamaha Question 4/15/2019 7:27 AM

I see on here quite often how people refer to the Yamaha 450 as a fat pig, etc... we don't see the same results from them as we do KTM and Kawi. However, the 250's seem to be very good bikes with top guys contending each week. What's the difference? ... more »

New thread Year old factory bikes? 12/26/2018 12:17 PM

So, the Dean Wilson deal had me thinking. With as little as the bikes change from year to year, how much of the factory stuff gets brought over to the following year? If it's little to nothing, why? Why wouldn't Husky take parts from Dean's 2018 bikes ... more »

New thread Arizona Cycle Park 12/5/2018 6:44 AM

Looking at photos from the Arizona Open, I noticed a little bit of elevation change. Went and found the place on Google and it looks like a nice facility. Not sure how much of that land they own but is it a possible venue for Pro Motocross? It sits next ... more »

New thread Jordon Smith - AMA Logo? (View from the infield) 10/15/2018 7:19 AM

So the photo of Jordon Smith has a caption "Don't show up without an AMA logo on your jersey or you'll get a last minute addition"

Looking through the other photos, doesn't look like Savatgy had one nor Chad Reed. Were they missed or was something ... more »

New thread Pit Bits 9/19/2018 11:02 AM

First off, I really enjoy the weekly Pit Bits portion of the website. It's cool to see what the teams are doing to their bikes and the differences in things between riders. I especially find it interesting the difference between factory teams on both ... more »

New thread Transport/Pit setups for MXON 8/30/2018 7:50 AM

So how does this work? Will US based teams be providing transporters and such for the Euro based teams? Will the US KTM rig be there for Herlings? Will any Kawi guys be pitting with Tomac out of the US Kawi rig? Will Yanaha guys be pitting with Barcia ... more »

New thread Double goggles question... 8/27/2018 7:14 PM

So I saw some video of Ferrandis putting on his 2 sets of goggles and the 2nd set looked almost thinner, maybe with less foam? Anyone have the scoop on this? It seems like that would make sense. Are they a custom goggle, standard, or do they just have ... more »

New thread "Development Ride" 8/27/2018 12:52 PM

The Chad Reed situation has me reminded of Bob Hannah near the end of his career. Wouldn't it be cool if Chad could land a "development" type ride where he helps to develop the next Suzuki 450 bike AND gets to compete in select events (be it SX, MX, ... more »

New thread What happened to individuality? 8/22/2018 7:09 AM

I understand the team thing and for teams like PC and Geico, I get the team look... but I miss the days when each rider had their own individual style. Even "non-team" guys who ride for certain gear brands (Fly) end up all wearing the same gear each ... more »

New thread What would it take to get TM into Pro AMA Moto? 8/16/2018 7:23 PM

How many bikes are they currently importing? How many more would they need to meet the minimums? I think it'd be great to have another factory in the mix and the opportunity for more factory spots. It seems you see some TM's in the am ranks so are they ... more »

New thread Theft Deterrent 6/20/2018 12:18 PM

Saw this in the Pit Bits. Seems like a pretty good idea for everyone. Fairly cheap theft deterrent. Could be used in both the front and rear wheels. In most cases, thieves will walk away from something that isn't fairly easy to steal.
