2 chinese GP's. I wonder if Luongo will allow Chinese locals to fill the gates.

What's next? Gp of North-Korea in 2020? Or maybe Afghanistan?

Lets make the EMX 2t a new populair class! Then planning a round in Russia and Turkey! What a bullshit!

If they want to let this class grow, then have those races in the middle of Europe so its easy to get to for everybody. This is just ridiculios.

So living in the US, I honestly don't know the answer to this. How safe is it to host events in Turkey and China?

French and Italians gonna have a field year in EMX125 with only 2 sand races and the rest being hard pack.

I agree with the 2t races being in really sucky places. To go with Russia and Turkey, GB, Portugal and Latvia aren’t the easiest travels either.

What if the first round was in the US? That would be cool!

Interesting to see them going to China, Hong Kong, Indonesia twice... Are those really target areas?

”Target area” has for years and years been a synonym to places that fill one certain pocket with a bunch of cash. Qatar being the most obvious example.

I read a few weeks back where Luongo said the Argentines want to move the race to a location closer to a metropolitan area. The March 10 opener may yet be in Argentina, but it likely won't be Patagonia.

I agree, it was an awesome track that showcased the sport well, especially after a winter of fucking Supercross.

I forgot about that. I forget he doesn't care about the sport or growing it for any reason other than lining his pockets.

the funniest thing about this particular signature is that by the time you realise it doesn't say anything it's to late to stop reading it

Turkey I know nothing about. But China should be safe I would imagine?

Turkey borders Syria, tells you everything.

The safety in Turkey wont be a problem , because millions Europeans are spending their summer holiday in that country.

And the terror attacks are mosly in the south-east (at the Syrian border) and hundreds of miles away from the mxgp track

There is nothing dangerous with China. Actually i would guess that the OEMs love that the GPs goes to one of the biggest markets out there.

Turkey is a huge turism place for Europeans. Even though that has gone down with the political issues in the country. But still safe.

Argentina not being on the schedule is the big problem. It's an amazing track. The only thing that could "replace" it is a round in USA.

Turkey I'm not sure about, but China? It isn't 1972 anymore. I visited there this past summer and was very impressed by how clean and safe it was as compared to the US. I felt far safer there than downtown Seattle, and that included being out in rural areas of China and not just the metropolis areas.

You probably read this already: Youthstream did not schedule a USGP because no top AMA teams -- not even the Monster-sponsored teams -- would commit to participating.

Yeah i forgot that... Well i hope Argentina is the first round and at the track they have had the recent races on. That place is awesome!

Too bad that there isn't a USGP. That is a big, big minus for Youthstream.

I think now it would be good time to start independent European series with all traditional European tracks that aren't part of GP's anymore. I think there would plenty of riders available who can't afford race in GP's and aren't allowed to race EMX250 due to age.

|

10/18/2018 12:52 PM

Scrap the Lombardia round on May 12th and come to the US. I'm sure plenty of American privateers will help fill the gate in preparation for the nationals.

I'd rather drive a box van from Millville to Washougal and then back across to Unadilla than deal with some of these trips they have planned in MXGP. (insert gong sound)

Red Bull tried this a couple of years ago, with most rounds ran in GBR and riders who lost a spot in the GPs. Series doesn't exist anymore now, so you know the chances of survival are slim.

Very cool to know. China is one place I've always wanted to go but just never really knew how safe it was. Thanks for the info.

I'd suggest there is plenty of unrest in Turkey. As for China, how much news actually gets out (that they don't want us to know)?

this is great news to me, ive recently met and become involved with some hongkong chinese mx people.....
