And given the government's hard-on for PEDs, I'm not sure the sport needs to be doing anything other than taking these matters very seriously.

I'd bet Feld and MX Sports make more money off the casual fans than the small group of "hardcore" fans. Same with the NFL, NBA, MLB, etc.

I think the internet in general (Twitter especially) has been getting worse, but industry people used to be respected on moto boards in the past. Not so much any more.

The amount of vitriol and schadenfreude displayed by some of the posters here toward people actually involved on the industry is ridiculous.

At this point I gotta wonder if Mike has tried to kick Tony to the curb and has gotten "do you know how much I sacrificed for you?!"

I'd imagine there would be an appeals process, which would probably require the rider to head to Europe.

When did the news about RV skipping Nationals first break?

Who's would you most like to have? I'd go Astephen. Flies private, does stuff outside of moto, and seems to be pretty damned gold at his job

My guess is it's a guy that has been struggling for years, the team found out about it and fired him, then he ironically puts himself in a position where he gets tested.

I wonder if they'll announce what it was, or just that it was a failed test like in the NFL.

Depends. Yes, at some stadiums, concessions are contracted out.

Yep. MJ is the cash cow. I'm not sure SX would exist without shared dirt/rental costs
