it all depends on how many euros show up, if 40 of them show up no one will get to ride

He wasn't bagging on AMA riders, the GP have a fixed set of riders (or rather a fixed set of teams with a fixed set of gates available to them). Other, "local" riders are allowed in when gates are left empty.

I'm not 100% sure this is exactly how it works, but I believe that's the gist of it. In either case he wasn't trying to say that AMA riders couldn't qualify among GP riders if that was the way to get in.

It's only a fixed set of riders/teams in Luongo's utopian vision. In reality they never get 40 riders who can afford to race a GP. If you have the cash there's a space on the gate for even a novice.

BT101 is a Kiwi, Anstie Searle are BRits, Rattray and Langston are Saffa's, not many US born guys are signing up, and the most the ones that are have raced in Europe before,

seems to be not much interest from the riders with out a connection to the GP tour, its a shame but i can understand why they would not do an extra race for free

What qualifiers?

You pay, you race.

All that stuff on Saturday is for gate pick.

It's a shame that our top riders are not in. Both the teams and riders should be ashamed for NOT being there. Props to those Americans who are racing.

Sweet!

He is blazing fast at GH! Well, blazing fast everywhere but REALLY blazing fast at GH...!

Should be a great chance for him to showcase his skills and get some exposure for himself and his team. Are they supporting him for this race or is he on his own?

Best of luck!

why should they be ashamed? this is a race that was put on at short notice, that pays no price money, or that they will not get any bonus money for, it is not the des Nations, they are not racing for there country here

It's not all about money. They should be ashamed for not showing up to win and beat riders from around the world.

Really? What's the incentive to show up? I'd say scott_nz's post makes a lot more sense.

I already said what the incentive is: To win. Ryan Hughes seems to think it makes sense as well. Ryan said, ""I just don't know what's up with many of America's pro riders today... everyone should be honored to ride for their country!" Honor does have its place, even above $$$ incentives.

they are not "riding for there country" that is what the MX des Nations is, you get picked to ride for your country, this is a race for the world championship, which the riders based in the states do not really care about

You don't get it: If it is a race where the best riders from around the world are racing together, you are riding for your country. Champions are champions and no champion wants to lose, ask Ricky Carmichael. Pride is on the line at these events and every top guys wants to win for himself and his country.

STFU. If they raced in the GP it would be for themselves and nobody else.

Well, Hangtown is on an off week from the GP's. Why don't Cairoli, Roczen, and the rest all line up there? After all, the best riders in the world are going to be there and is "a race where the best riders from around the world are racing together." They should "race for THEIR country"!

5/16/2010 2:20 PM

As it is stated above, Roczen would have raced Hangtown, if the AMA would have let him. He is too young!
