Red flag restart, bad night for the Martin bros

He was KO'ed flat on his face under his bike in the middle of the bowl turn. The worst part about it was they red flagged the race and super duper Justin Cooper ignored the flags/lights and continued racing/tripling leading the pack right into them where a medic got taken down with poor AMart getting run over multiple times. Total shitshow...

You must have been watching the ‘alternate universe 250 main’, what channel is that on?

Not one of you can see what Jmart was seeing or see what the guy who hit him was seeing. Why do you guys state your opinions like they are facts?

Fact- Every rider jumped into the rhythm section except Jmart, this is the result.

Mistakes were made...no doubt...but lets be real here...this is possibly the most fast paced, dangerous sport on the planet. I am constantly amazed there isn't more carnage than there is already. That is basically down to the riders skill, track workers, and med crew. In the end, they are all humans performing at speed in an unscripted environment. Pretty damned impressive imo.

Idk. Watching a marts last vlog where he is breaking in the race bike (which looked like it was not working) makes me wonder why some guys don’t race a broken in practice bike. He looked so comfortable on his practice bike and to switch to something “fresh” doesn’t make sense to me. I don’t know why or how he crashed but he didn’t look great on the race bike all day.

I don't see how. The red lights where lit before he got to the first turn. Riders down everywhere. Flag-er standing in the middle of the track trying to turn them off the track where they exit it and nutsack Cooper goes around him and just keeps racing because he has to win you know.

You're right if everyone rolled then nobody would've been landed on laughing Jalek and everyone around them have something to do with it. Everyone around is jumping and Jeremy is the only one that didn't. You dont think that plays any factor? Once again, try to be better next time before you give some ignorant race incident report lol

I’m not sure what world you live in. As a rider your responsible for judgement in front of you. Turning off the brain doesn’t count. Also, please do your best to use ignorant in the correct context. I know it’s difficult. Jeremy didn’t have room to thread the needle, hence not jumping. He has every right to not jump and the moron behind him decided to send it. I would hate to be on the same track with your decision making lol 😂

I’ll take Jeremy’s judgement being 2x outdoor champ and 6x sx race winner over the rookies first race decision making all day.

Your memory is completely wrong. Martin was not hit by multiple riders. Justin Cooper started rolling jumps before they even got to the lane that Martin was lying in. There were no flaggers on the lane Martin was lying in. There was one track crew directing riders and all he did was put a tough block on the track and direct riders towards Martin.

Your an idiot. The lights where lit before Cooper ever took the green flag. You can see them as they cycle around the other end of the stadium. You can see him jump through it. You can also see clearly on the broadcast the red flag was out before he entered the rhythm lane AMart was down in. The reason there where no flag-ers in the lane is because they where in the previous lane directing them off the track and Cooper ignored it and kept racing. My bad I had not watched the race on TV and it appeared he was hit by multiple riders but it may have been only one. You know hindsight is always perfect for the know it all's here.

There was no red flag shown to the leaders until after they went by AMart, the red flag did come out on the finish line after the lead group passed, the Red Cross and yellows were all in the lane before they made the turn to head towards AMart...Cooper even looked back to the flaggers and was going at about 50% when he approached AMart. There was a track worker who had put a tuff block on the inside and directed the riders to the outside where the medic and AMart were with little to no room to get by. The medic ran out in front of Cooper who barely missed him and right into Mcadoo’s path...watch the replay and you will see that this was a cluster fuck from the get go by race control, there should have been a red flag at the point of the Red Cross flag to keep the riders from heading toward AMart but there wasn’t....

Lol, you're wrong. They got the green flag on the finish line jump, turned, went down the start straight, turned left onto the rhythm lane and the lights were flashing (PS, lights flashing does not mean stop racing. It means caution, passing allowed, jumping allowed https://www.supercrosslive.com/2020-supplemental-rules). They did two doubles and then saw the red cross flag which was being waived by a person on that lane before the turn. Everyone slowed down and rolled the rest of that rhythm, did a 180 left, headed towards the triple. There were no flaggers on this lane. Everyone rolled the triple, rolled the rollers and were forced to the outside due to where the track crew put the tough block. That lead group did not get a red flag until they finished the whoop lane, turned left and started to cut across the start in front of the mechanics area. At that point was a guy standing in the track with a red flag directing them back to the start gate.

"White With Red Cross/Flashing Red Lights:

Competitors must show extreme caution, slow down, maintain position, not gain an advantage and wheels of the motorcycle must not leave the ground between the flag and the incident."


The lights where red and he jumped. Extreme caution was not used and the flag-er did everything but try and tackle Cooper to get him to pull over.

Other than those small details you left out. When will this guy take responsibility for his action on the track. I have never seen anybody get as many passes as this guy.

I guess you didn't read my post before posting. Maybe by the time they tried and block the track with the tuff block so no riders would pass you might think Super Pooper would have caught on.


You know it's kind of an unwritten rule just because you don't see a red flag you run over a medic scene. If the crew is blocking the track you need to get off it. He was so lucky he didn't t-bone the crash as it looked he would because he had it lined right up.

This is the lead group on the first lap doing the back section before the finish. No lights.

Photo

Heading around the back section. Yellow lights on the rhythm after the start straight.

Photo

Just about to hit the finish, no lights.

Photo

Cross the finish and they are under a green flag. No issues.

Photo

They do the start straight and turn to go onto the rhythm. At this point we have flashing yellow lights. Which means they can race normally, just need to be cautious.

Photo

They roll, then double, double. Still only flashing yellow. No red lights.

Photo

They finally get to a red cross flash and everyone starts rolling jumps. This is right when the red flag comes out on the finish line.

Photo

They make the 180 and the only flagger in sight is still that one on the previous lane.

Photo

Everyone is rolling at this point. Still no flaggers on this lane.

Photo

They rolled the triple and rolled the rollers.

Photo

That crew member put that tough block there forcing them outside.

Photo

McAdoo swerved to the right to try and avoid the medic.

Photo

No flags down the whoop lane. The only flagger is holding his yellow flag doing nothing.

Photo

They finally get a red flag right in front of the mechanics area.

Your blind. the lights where all red. Also notice the flag-er is directing them to the designated track exit with an additional flag-er positioned there waving them off the track.. Again all the lights are red and the red cross is out before they took the green in every photo you shown.

Just rewatched it. Looked like the lights hit as soon as they hit the rythm lane before A Mart, Mcadoo jumped too, until they saw the flag being waved, them they proceeded to roll everything til after Martin. Cooper almost hit the medic running across the track since the tuff block diverted them that way, then Mcadoo tagged both of them.

Edit: after seeing the stills posted above, you can tell the red lights are flashing in the lane after the start straight, so they did 2 jumps in that rhythm under red lights, which I'm guessing they didn't see, because they started rolling as soon as they saw the flag.

Jeremy, well that was way more worrying. He knew instantly that he was done.

These things are just horrible. You work hard all off season long and then it comes to an end on the first lap of the first race.

The dude was out cold bro. He was sleeping in the middle of the track.

They do the start straight and turn to go onto the rhythm. At this point we have flashing yellow lights. Which means they can race normally, just need to be cautious.

Photo

They roll, then double, double. Still only flashing yellow. No red lights.

Photo

They finally get to a red cross flash and everyone starts rolling jumps. This is right when the red flag comes out on the finish line.

Photo

They make the 180 and the only flagger in sight is still that one on the previous lane.

Photo

Everyone is rolling at this point. Still no flaggers on this lane.

Photo

They rolled the triple and rolled the rollers.

Photo

That crew member put that tough block there forcing them outside.

Photo

McAdoo swerved to the right to try and avoid the medic.

Photo

No flags down the whoop lane. The only flagger is holding his yellow flag doing nothing.

Photo

They finally get a red flag right in front of the mechanics area.

Your blind. the lights where all red. Also notice the flag-er is directing them to the designated track exit with an additional flag-er positioned there waving them off the track.. Again all the lights are red and the red cross is out before they took the green in every photo you shown.

No they weren’t. They were yellow lights initially. What does it matter when the Red Cross flag came out? They can’t look around the track to see if there are flags where they aren’t riding. The first Red Cross flag they saw is what is shown in the pics. the first red flag they saw was after the whoops.

The flagger waving the Red Cross is holding the yellow flag. Not waving it. And not frantically waving them off the track. Besides, why would that person be waving them off? The red flag had just come out.

"White With Red Cross/Flashing Red Lights:

Competitors must show extreme caution, slow down, maintain position, not gain an advantage and wheels of the motorcycle must not leave the ground between the flag and the incident."


The lights where red and he jumped. Extreme caution was not used and the flag-er did everything but try and tackle Cooper to get him to pull over.

Other than those small details you left out. When will this guy take responsibility for his action on the track. I have never seen anybody get as many passes as this guy.

Heading around the back section. Yellow lights on the rhythm after the start straight.

Just about to hit the finish, no lights.

I'm a bit more optimistic for Alex, he seemed somewhat ok when he was sitting on the Astars golfcart och whatever it's called. Maybe just a really hard hit and a bunch of soreness?

Jeremy, well that was way more worrying. He knew instantly that he was done.

These things are just horrible. You work hard all off season long and then it comes to an end on the first lap of the first race.

The dude was out cold bro. He was sleeping in the middle of the track.

He was not out cold. He was on all fours and actually rolling over when McAdoo hit him.
