Okay, here's the third crack at silly season for 2017. Like always, some of it's real, a portion is rumored, and some of it will inevitably prove itself wrong. As always, if you've got info to add, a legit team logo, or anything to help fill in the blanks, send an email to GuyB.

You'll find a whole bunch more Twitter (T) and Instagram (I) links for riders. Oh, and feel free to follow us on Twitter, Facebook, and Instagram.

    If you wanna add gear to Babbitts, here you go: Helmet: Shoei, Gear: Moose, Goggles: 100%, Boots: Alpinestars.

    Also I believe Osby is wearing a Fly helmet, 100% goggles, Fly gear, and Alpinestars boots.

  • gasser

    12/22/2016 10:50 AM

    I believe if they want to grow the sport everyone has to race a stock bike this way it will level the playing field this sport has reached a point where it is pricing out too many people

  • GuyB

    12/22/2016 2:02 PM

    That's sort of like also suggesting that they shouldn't train. It's the top end of what they do. It's not for everyone. If stock bikes were mandatory, I'd expect we'd see weekly protests, and a large number of bikes torn down after at the AMA tent every race. I'm not sure I see the advantage to this plan.

  • gasser

    12/22/2016 2:19 PM

    It has nothing to do with training everyone trains now days if you want to be the best you need to train my point is this everyone goes to the gate with equal engine no advantages let's see who the best actually is who is in the best shape not who has the most money backing them because we all know there's not enough money going around in this sport to back nearly enough riders that's my point

  • gasser

    12/22/2016 2:26 PM

    Guy I'm simply looking at the sport from a business point of view I love the sport but it is not growing I think this idea would work sure it would shake things up but trust me the consumer would come out ahead with fantastic racing

  • GuyB

    12/22/2016 2:39 PM

    I get where you're coming from, but I think we're talking about two different things. Growing the sport (amateur side?) That sounds great. I'm not sure how we grow the SX side, other than maybe more spectators in the stands. There are plenty enough quality guys to make the night show. I'm not making it cheaper (or putting guys on stock bikes) would change the results much.

  • GuyB

    12/20/2016 8:30 PM

    In many cases they're on a smaller team, we just don't have all the info.
