In all honesty, the MXoN is an end of season Finale.. but we wont get a season. Lets get the races in. If we can get 75% of an MXGP season, 5 more SX races and enough Nationals to mean something, its all good. If MXoN is a casualty of that , I will take ... more »

No.. hard surface, hard suspension. You need to load the tyre to get grip.

No weekends to run it on, with all the GP rescheduling, it wont be the first National series to go , I am sure.

The 'weeks off' in the series, are when the riders race their own nationals, or in some cases , other countries too. You are the one that doesn't have an idea.

I have a few over the years … but the most recent one, that's a story. Buddy from the UK , who I raced with as a kid, who moved to the US in 2000, has been bugging me to come to the US to ride MX Rewind, for a few years but it always clashed with a Supermoto ... more »

Mapping and ECU aids, mean you can send horsepower by email, you don't need port jobs and pistons, you can add fuel and ignition where you want ( or take it away , which is better) at the touch of a button. Its not 'new tech' its 'new to MX tech'.. leave ... more »

So historically , the start has always been like this at Valkenswaard , apart from a couple of changes that didn't work ( the lake FFS ) BUT the gate is further forward, and angled , which it never used to be, but they always levelled off all the way ... more »

I want to know who decided to have the start device of Hofers bike so far down that it didn't click off. Lupino and Freek Van Der Vliest also had issues. How the expect it to click off when the first left right is virtually flat with no braking is beyond ... more »

In his defense, the track was brutal and he was way off.. if you cant push yourself round there you risk injury. Honestly, it would have been a waste of fuel

Big shout out for Shaun Simpson.. 4th in race 2 on a fully private bike , and was an easy 5th in race 1 when he went down very hard. Made a lot of factory guys look very ordinary today
