Yep. A large staff working year round on the series is also a large expense. The cost for the grunt workers in NJ was over $70k alone. I would also love to see someone lay out what they think the expenses are for either series. Would also be interested ... more »

Road 2 Recovery has 501c3 status, and their grants are only given to those riders who have been severely injured. I don't think it would be an issue.

I always shake my head at statements like these. The idea that Feld/MXSports are rolling in the dough by putting on races is just not true.

It might help if the AMMU was set up as a 501c3, so that people could write their donations off, and it would also help illustrate where funding goes.

While I think it is cool that they keep loading more high tech equipment in to the semi, am I the only one that thinks maybe they should have budgeted gas money first? And those screaming at the big bad series promoters to "step up", here's a pic of

New thread Who will have the most success on their new rides next year? 5/15/2014 7:31 AM

Roczen at RCH, Barcia at JGR, or Dean at Red Bull KTM? I think the JGR program will really benefit Barcia. Not sure the bike will suit his style, though. And most importantly, how will Dean's bromance with Dirt Shark be affected?!?!

I still think it's weird that he singles Vital out during the press conference as a bunch of people just starting rumors, but the "rumors" were actually true. The team/media relationship in this sport is so weird. This and the Barcia picture are a great ... more »

He was at the Oakland round. Big moto fan.

Reply to 2015 schedule wtf? 5/2/2014 5:36 PM

The 49ers stadium will be available from January on for the next several years. The Seattle race will be back in 2016. ESPN The Mag had a great article on the problems with Qualcomm Stadium. Place was a dump. Not as bad as Oakland, though. Schedule is ... more »

I truly think we will eventually see the oil-injected two stroke take over at some point.

First time? Walk the Strip and take it all in. Go see the big casinos. The deli at NYNY has some of the best sandwiches ever. If you want to see a show, hit up one of the Tix 4 Tonite places for big discounts.

Concur. Both the restaurant and club are pretty sweet. Ludacris is at 1OAK Saturday.

Ha. The Vegas round has never been about the race itself for me (except for the RC/Bubba/Reed slugfests) I forgot: 5. In N Out 6. Drinking plenty of adult beverages 7. Going to a club and thinking I can actually dance (see #6) 8. Paying my tithe to The ... more »

They were around 45k sold at the beginning of the month. Gotta wonder if the weather wasn't questionable if they could have pushed it higher.

When has he ever talked about his riders too much? Fro and Ralph finally noticed Josh was in third and started talking him up. RC was silent. I think it's pretty clear who made the choice to cut him.
