Added reply in a thread AMA National MX Purse Money? 10/13/2020 8:03 AM

Yes because it's been shown in the past that if they have good years of spectators they increase the purse

The start isn't just HP...if it was DF would've been holeshotting all year. Notice once he spent time working on technique he was suddenly up front every start??

Exactly. All these stupid "amateur" contracts so 1-2 years in the pros and kids are cast aside for the next big thing. How many potential champs sitting at home somewhere due to unfortunate timing of injury, maturity, etc.

'19 top of his class, still pushed limits during practices for some reason with many close calls and then crashes and has season ending injury. '20 riding well coming back after injury but now just top 3 guy. '21 going to have to come back from a serious ... more »

(2) brand new ones are listed here with a hand full of used ones, seem a little more common than a big foot sighting...

I know it's moto, and moto contracts are not the same as other contracts...but wouldn't riders with contracts be getting something??

Yeah one year for spring break the wife and I drove down that way. Pictures looked great and figured would be a good area to stay (Pigeon Forge)....big mistake, that place is just a big tourist trap and way too busy for me. Smokey Mountains are cool ... more »

Looks fun! I’m not much of a jumper in my old age, 49, but that looks pretty safe and hard to tell from a go pro but think I would do everything but that up hill triple, but looks like doubling wouldn’t wreck the flow much 🤷‍♂️

Yup, look at Alessi. Just make $30k in one weekend. Not sure why more privateers don't just travel and hit up local money races instead of paying to ride around hoping to score a point in the nationals and maybe get your entry fee back. In the 90's many ... more »

Amazing that someone with almost 5000 post doesn't understand the AMA National class structure

$80k a year when you are 21 and doing something you love? I would consider that a pretty good job. Not sure where you are but $40/hr is pretty good paying in my neck of the woods (2080 hrs typical 40 hour work year).

I think he's just saying it's been a good year after recovering from a devastating injury and he's looking forward to the year to come.

The irony...parent’s mortgaging their future to pay for their kid to stay at a training facility so the facility can pay a pro to race...

Looks like I won’t be getting it. Went back and forth with the owner, I was stuck at $1800 and he said too low. I really didn’t want to go higher but said I would do $2k if he met me half way (he’s about 4 hours from me). Figured $200 extra wasn’t bad ... more »

That would be a pretty big demotion....all because someone in his circle was asking for too much?
