Just curious lol. (It really doesn’t matter either) but I see multiple riders who smoke regularly. Do they get tested? Maybe once before the first race?

Lol why is that?😂 I just figured that they probably don’t test for THC. I asked my buddy who’s a pro mech and he wasn’t sure.

Yup. But the testing threshold has been bumped up to be fairly high (150 ng/mL). Enough so that these young athletes would probably clear if they held off for the day before testing.

https://www.usada.org/athletes/substances/marijuana-faq/

"To obtain such a result, an athlete would have to consume a minimum of 4 to 8 units of high-purity cannabis resin - containing from 0.5 to 0.75 grams of cannabis per unit - 4 to 6 hours prior to the competition. (https://www.canorml.org/employment/marijuana-drug-test-detection-times/)"

Follow them on IG. The things they post make me laugh, good to see a group of friends living their best lives.

Athletes are usually pretty lean, and THC is stored in your fat cells, so unless they are smoking a lot, and right before the test, it's not coming up positive.

Stank,team fried (anderson), have heard some things about the bakers factory etc. I have no problem with it just curious how they make it so obvious yet never fail etc.

In Illinois....smoking weed is legal. No more negative judgements from the drinkers. If one of the riders smokes....no big deal. Let's not draw attention to them.

If they did, Garett Steinke would not be racing

Does Gared have a brother who burns more than him?

Unleaded tastes a little tangy. Supreme is kinda sour, and diesel tastes pretty good.

How would weed be performance enhancing?..... "It's cool man, you can pass me. It's beautiful out here"

I use it to have more fun when trail riding but I can't imagine heading to the gate while being high from a gummy...

That stuff is possibly only good for certain swimmer olympic gold medalists not mx riders.

You're assuming Gared has been tested though.

If it was banned at the local level here, we would lose half of the Vet Class laughing

Just good excuse to post this because it always cracks me up.

For all you smokers out there add this one to your playlist and crank it up loud...this studio version is one of my all time favorites. I've found that the ladies seem to love this one too. The only problem is that it's too short....should have kept playing twice as long:

More than half of the dudes on the line in the 450 main smoke or eat it. A few fund there racing by selling it 🤷🏻‍♂️

It’s popular with BBJ fighters and MMA dudes for recovering from intense workouts

So Ralph was wrong then. Deano wasn't just selling T-shirts out of his van to fund his way to the races.
