Imola is built at the road race circuit? I don't remember seeing it on the schedule before.

Didn't realize MXoN was in the US this year. Definitely going to go. Went when it was at Budds Creek and it was by far the coolest thing I have ever been to in my life. I could only imagine Red Bud will be even better.

The fact that the season starts in Patagonia is the best thing since sliced bread.

One of the best tracks in the world with a fantastic crowd! The years with Qatar as the season opener were so boring.

Mexico gone, not a big loss trackwise. Five flyaway races, with Russia and Turkey included, where there won't be any teamtrucks. Afyonkarahisar is a big trip aswell,about 400kms from Istanbul and 300kms from Antalya. Indonesia no longer in the rainy season, but complaints about being way too hot and humid will follow shortly I guess.

Mexico gone sad yeah the track was not good at all and it bugs me that we could have a great track in any other place kind of like Patagonia but well at least I got to attend all the MXGPs that we had and it was awesome to watch it and meet all the riders.. I guess I have to plan a trip to the MXoN haha

Rather be a racer for a time than a spectator for a lifetime..

Complaints about being way to hot in Semarang in July will be with good merit. It is hotter than the hubs of hell there. There were many complaints about the heat at the GP in Florida. Florida is plenty hot but I believe Indonesia is a bit hotter. That is one reason why I was curious where it was going to be held. If it is in the hills, it is a little cooler but not much.

That calendar needs hotter chics!

Miss February is beat.

Yeah that's way too much of a schedule and too much travel for GP guys to be able to make the MXoN. They should definitely take the race off.

I'm actually kind of bummed to not see Qatar on the schedule, the track sucked but racing at night was always cool.

I went this year - with my 'Princess' of a GF, who usually, would never go near Dirt. But, she's a Beach Girl, and I got her interested by the seaside accommodation I arranged. She had the time of her life. Enjoyed the Place, the People, and, the Mud. I never would have thought it.

It was a great event, despite the rain. Genuinely Big crowd ( go back and look at the video archives and open your eyes, people) . If they would have had the sense to dig the area off to one side of the Sand track deeper, the water / water table would have drained from the track and there would have been no swamp sections. The locals do it with their dirt storm water channels / erosion ditches all over Indo. Someone either did not think / did not seek local knowledge. Fools.

I'm looking to go to both GPs in Indo next year - affordable, and, fun. And I'm far from a fan of most Asian tourist traps.

Only thing is, I'm reluctant to start to make bookings, as you never know with Luongo. I, for one, could not hang around besides the Beach for 2 weeks if one or the other is cancelled, even with them being on different Islands. I've better things to do. I'm shipping my mad old (78) Mum to Bali tomorrow. Why she wants to go there, I'm buggered if I know. It's become a hell hole of a tourist destination. I surfed there over 30 years ago, when it was damned near a paradise. It sure as hell is not now.
