1) how do you feel about not having any of the Stewart's here this weekend? Ha I couldn't resist it was to easy!

2) with the field consisting of 20 guys that could realistically win this weekends race, would you say this year you have had to put in more work in preparation than any other year?

3) since the FIM has stepped out of the comfort zone with changing the format to timed events, what else would you like to see to improve the sport for the fan experience.

Crazy to me that Seely isn't at the conference. I like Grant and all, but Cole deserves it more than Josh.

If anything a nice round number of ten. Then again, like stated above. Seely deserves it more so than Grant, but obviously he is not a monster athlete.

Steve see if you can get Keefer to ask Dungey how he feels about taking out James, at last years A1, and that killed James's career. sad whistling

6) Trump or Hillary?

Ask them their opinion on displacement limits. I doubt anyone will say too much since they are paid to endorse the bike they ride but it would be cool to hear if they would prefer to be on 250's or not.

Maybe not a question for the press conference or maybe it is.

Considering Jessy Nelson's as well as others who have suffered career ending injuries, what steps can the industry take to allow all riders that participate in SX and MX the opportunity to afford a catastrophic injury insurance policy?

What piece of technology have you implemented into your program to help physical performance?

1/4/2017 10:44 PM

From your rookie year to now would you say the volume of practice riding and testing has gone up, down or no change?

|

1/4/2017 10:51 PM

There have been rumors of the SX series being spread out across the year with races around the globe. What are your thoughts?

|

How has strategy changed with regards to race management? In the past it was get out front get a sizable lead and try and maintain the gap. Over the past 10 years we have seen the front runners go from 2 to 5 and closing to where now you could have 10 guys all within a second of each other racing around the track. Do you push the pace or take a wait and see approach until someone makes a mistake?

What's the most significant change in your program these last 3-4 months?

I ripped a start from Egypt and I was happy about that.

That's a great question, but that's not a question for the riders at an A1 press conference IMO
