After seeing the graphic in the TV coverage, you realize how simple it would be to create a different, separate award for the Overall standings of the SX and MX series combined. I'd assume it's only because the 2 parties don't cooperate with one another's naming rights? Props to Peacock for putting that on the program. Pretty obvious MX Sports isn't the one with the problem.

They could call it the Grand National Championship....or something like that wink

Like they did in 1984... David Bailey wore the "blue" #1 plate in '85 as the "Grand National Champion"

One can dream a bit, but it would probably take about 1 day to get it done if someone came up with a multi-million dollar purse for the naming rights...

Multi-million dollar purse? Theres never been a multi-million dollar purse in this sport but its gonna start with this?

Yeah, it can be done but it will probably end up like a constructors championship or the triple crown champion, with a plaque and a line in the history books and not much else.

I’ve always thought this would be cool to do. Give some sort of insensitive to make the riders want this.

If you are going to have a big time purse, it should be for the absolute top accomplishment.

What is the purse to win the mx or sx championship? What is the purse to win the mxgp championship?

There is your problem, three different championships with no clear winner.

As far as i can tell none of those series pay a championship purse.

I do admire your "if you build it, they will come" attitude.

Isn't there a 100k Championship award from Feld for Supercross? Doesn't 2nd get 40k and 3rd 25k?

Rule changes are typically stopped at the Honda speed bump, but this one...

Anyone else get the email/questionnaire from Feld today? Couple of the questions refer to this exact thing.....

We have far greater problems to fix than this. Let’s start with 25 out of 40 riders getting lapped in the “premier” class. After that lets teach the NBC film crew how cool our sport looks from the ground not from a satellite view. Never going to happen I know.

I was gonna make a thread about this, I did as well. We see it on the MX race on Saturday and on Monday we get an email about this from Supercross. The timing of this is pretty crazy.

7/26/2021 2:17 PM

I'm all for it but my guess is the manufacturers would be against it

Hmm, perhaps a suitable title of stature to replace FIM?

You’re out to lunch. Not even remotely close to being on topic.

Overall championship would be awesome and I vote yes. Shows who can put together a full year with all the adversity that each series has.

Nobody ever told me, I found out for myself. You've got to believe in foolish miracles. It's not how you play the game, it's if you win or lose. You can choose. Don't confuse. Win or lose. It's up to you!

8/ Chase Sexton = 400
9/ Joey Savatgy = 351
10/ Dean Wilson = 267
11/ Adam Cianciarulo = 267

250 :

1/ Justin Cooper = 481
2/ Jett Lawrence = 450
3/ Hunter Lawrence = 418
4/ Colt Nichols = 382
5/ Jo Shimoda = 359
6/ Jalek Swoll = 301

IMO this is a GOOD idea!

|

7/27/2021 5:42 AM

Demonstrate how this concept would deliver new revenue/profits to the series promoters and it takes on a life of its own. Until then, it’s largely just a talking point.
