thanks DC. (note that he actually EXPLAINED the issue and didn't wag his finger at folks for asking questions?) Couple of questions: 1. How was it so organized a couple of years ago when you guys did the All-Star Race that was fully televised, announced, ... more »

Which one are you supposed to believe? The one that you confirm after picking up the phone and asking said rider to confirm or deny the rumors, and then you report it for your readers.

LMAO. You are missing the whole point.

Reply to Media Blackout 6/7/2018 4:08 PM

it's allright. I started it by being a dick. :-)

Reply to Media Blackout 6/7/2018 3:23 PM

allright, respectful response deserves a respectful answer. They (moto-press) absolutely went out of their way to not cover the race, as the journalists on this very site said they "forgot" the race was even happening and didn't cover it. Then DC said ... more »

my comment flew ENTIRELY over your head, didn't it?

Reply to Media Blackout 6/7/2018 1:58 PM

LOL - and this is why they keep doing it. Keep it up, bro-tato.

Reply to Media Blackout 6/7/2018 10:44 AM

i have followed Motocross since 1978 but admittedly didn't follow much in late '90s-early 00s. Saying that, I remain completely dumbfounded how the "journalism" arm of this sport works so tirelessly to absolutely disparage, make fun of, and insult their ... more »

so there are multiple known dirty tests by our moto journalist owners, yet they won't speak his name because....WHY? And nobody else is allowed to "guess" because....WHY?

Reply to Thunder Valley 125 All Star race? 6/5/2018 4:24 PM

as sad as it is, and as much as the owners of this site don't want to admit, the reason that the KTM 50cc SX gets more coverage is because of $$$$. KTM is paying a mint for that coverage. Who is going to pay for 125cc coverage? A whole bunch of NOBODY. ... more »

Reply to Thunder Valley 125 All Star race? 6/5/2018 11:54 AM

they're treating it like less than the KTM JR SX thing that even gets a few seconds of coverage during SX races. You've got ex-champions racing this thing and it's a complete blackout. Like it never happened. Inexcusable.

Reply to Someone at MXA must read the forum... 6/4/2018 1:27 PM

so that I understand...we're making fun of MXA for posting a story relevant to a topic posted here...because a guy that works HERE...is surfing THEIR site? LOL at "motocross journalism".

Reply to Where is Canard? 5/24/2018 7:37 AM

was thinking about him during the last race. With all the talk of jumps, ruts, track prep, etc...it seems like it would have been ideal to have him on site simply focused on track layout and maintenance for these events.

Reply to Two Stroke Race MEDIA BLACKOUT 5/23/2018 2:12 PM

I have seriously never understood this and brought it up many times. The media for this sport and its promoters have more fun making fun of their customers than I have seen in any other industry. The owners of this site constantly respond with snark ... more »

Reply to Chime in: Hangtown track layout - the wall 5/22/2018 4:16 PM

not being snarky, but if the tracks "were dug so deep in the past", then what is the reason for continuing to do so today? Slotcar racing is AWFUL and we sure do see a lot of it in the nationals.

New thread Air jets on motorcycles? 5/22/2018 7:04 AM

http://www.foxnews.com/auto/2018/05/22/air-jets-on-motorcycles-could-prevent-crashes.html I'm kinda confused. From the article it says that if you're leaning over in a corner and the bike detects "slippage", an air jet deploys thrust opposite of your ... more »

Reply to Racer X - Hangtown 125 All Star Race Video 5/21/2018 11:21 AM

well, you DID admit that you didn't even watch it so I think that a statement of "You don't care about it" probably has some truth behind it.

Reply to No more crying, 125 race is up on YouTube (racerX) 5/21/2018 11:14 AM

that kid was hauling the mail. And I kept hearing about RV's "bad start" but he was right there at the start. What a crazy cool day for the Tijero kid.

Reply to No news is good news?! 5/15/2018 12:12 PM

KRoc has that "eye of the tiger" mentality where his mind/heart only knows how to WIN. The key for him will be if he is "ok" with settling for 4th. If he does, he'll improve and get his game back 100% with enough time. If he goes crazy and pushes it, ... more »

Reply to Tickle b sample positive 5/15/2018 10:34 AM

not much to add, but this REALLY sucks for him. To ingest something unknowingly (if you believe him, which I do) and then to have your entire career ruined over some miniscule chemical that you didn't even know that you took.....just sucks. ANd yes, ... more »
