Maybe the new gen bike anticipated next year will incorporate the necessary changes that are required for the reversed engined YZ450 to become a consistent dry weather supercross winner or even bring home a championship. I don’t know what the issues ... more »

Correct. MXGP’s rule book allows teams to build true works bikes that allow them to modify anything they need to make the rider comfortable. We have a production rule here in the AMA.

If he’s smart, he worked a pay accelerator into the deal so his pay gets bumped if he brings a number 1 plate with him to Yamaha. I don’t see him laying it up outdoors this year. Especially since based on the reverse engined YZ450’s track record to this ... more »

If you don’t have a wife, kid, dog, or anybody else in your life that depends on you, you know the risks, so do what you want. If anyone in the world is depending on you coming home from the track, listen to your doctor.

Judging by the sponsor logos on the track, that race isn’t in the US, and certainly doesn’t represent the Supercross/monster truck demographic. Professional soccer is big in Europe, too. Not so much here in the US.

Added reply in a thread How many years until electric bikes in SX and MXGP? 5/4/2021 5:57 PM

It wouldn’t surprise me to see it in MXGP first. Europe leans pretty far to the left, especially on environmental matters. They have already been racing electric bikes on road courses in Europe (or they did until a lithium ion battery caught fire and ... more »

Actually, any premier class title in the US would break the curse of the bambino (which came about when Honda refused to renew Carmichael’s contract even after he won them 24 straight motos and the 450 outdoor championship way back in 2004). They haven’t ... more »

I got rid of my Asterisk knee braces several years ago and bought a set of Fox Titan Pro knee pads, and I have been very happy with them. I’m on my second set.

No, he’s got it wrong. If he wants to pull a Joel Robert, he needs to pull into the mechanic’s area on the last lap and chug a beer before collecting his championship. Joel

KTMHUSKYGASGAS has enough riders that could “develop a mechanical problem” if necessary that Roczen has zero chance of winning the championship as long as Webb simply crosses the finish line.

I get it that he’s had a lot to overcome. That is precisely why I feel it is a stretch to assume he’ll have Cooper handled outdoors this year. It has been five years since Roczen’s last championship. I can’t think of too many multi-time champions in ... more »

Oh yeah, Roczen has absolutely dominated outdoors last year. Oh wait...

Started new thread Budget sand tire recommendation 4/27/2021 6:33 AM

I very rarely ride sand, but I'd like to keep a paddle-style tire around for the once or twice a year that I do. Does anyone have any recommendations for a decent performing budget sand tire?

I see quite a bit of positive feedback on many of the new "house brand" tires carried by several of the big online retailers. Has anyone done a budget MX tire shootout yet? I'd like to see how they compare to one another on a variety of different surfaces. ... more »

Every time I get a new bike, I wear the stock chain and sprocket out (usually 10-15 hours) then replace them with a Firepower X-ring chain (great quality, low price) and a set of Dirt Tricks sprockets. I've never owned a bike long enough to wear through ... more »

If he doesn’t have the strength to hang on to huge leads in 20 minute Supercross races, I don’t see it happening for 2 motos in a row in the heat and humidity this summer.
