Added reply in a thread Cairoli really on a 350 at Valkenswaard? 4/26/2010 5:38 AM

On Moto verte, Yves Demaria says he wasn't on a 350. I don't know how if he knows for sure or if that was just speculation.

Bring it to Denver. I want to see a SX on snow.

I have one and it puts a :-) on my face every time I ride it. But I mostly put put around my backyard. I can't do the stuff these guys do. The best I can do is jump over a 2x4 without touching it.

You are probably right, but I can't tell. On the drawing, it looks like you need to be lower than the top of the clutch to do anything useful with the valves. Hopefully it is just due to the angle of the drawing.

Looks like adjusting valve clearance is going to be a bit more involved...

Of course it is necessary. I'd rather see the dad pay 2 guys to take videos and wrench on the bikes than having 2 unemployed dudes stealing bikes. Living large is the American way of life.If you have some money, it is your patriotic duty to go spend ... more »

looks faster than Pourcel. But then again, everybody looks faster than Pourcel (until they race on the same track)

The last time I saw a one lap foot race was at the Denver AX a couple of years ago. The guy who got the holeshot face planted in the whoops. I'm not making this up.

No pics of the guy after. Just the bike and people loading up the broken bike. Do you think he is still in the ditch?

And, the worst answer I get, is how we are all disabled to some extent, therefore we all race together. Is that limited to physical disability or can the mentally disabled members of this board enter too?

Look how deep the dirt is in the picture with Mike. I love it when they prep our local track and the turns are like that for a couple of laps. You can do no wrong.

Added reply in a thread from some very "inside" people at the sx races 4/20/2010 2:41 PM

SX is a lot harder to make safe than a road course though. For the road course you basically don't want to be hitting anything. So if a rider says "hey, this barrier is too close", or "this turn doesn't have enough run-off" it is probably pretty obvious ... more »

I have to believe that Ryan is in WAY better shape than me and should heal much faster than me. I don't think bones care how good a shape you are in. They heal at their own pace. And sometimes they don't. I know a guy whose broken leg is just not healing. ... more »

Weren't some of the tracks designed by riders last year (or the year before) Maybe thats one way to keep the tracks safer. Have current 250 and 450 riders take turn helping with the design...

Along the same line, I was parked next to a local shop owner once. He was done prepping his son's bike before a race and couldn't get it started. He tried for a good 5 minutes, then his kid tried too. Things went much better after I mentioned that maybe ... more »
