I’m gonna say no! Because if they did they would be figuring out why the hell tickle has not heard from the FIm regarding his issue! What a joke the AMA and feld are! Another reason why my AMA membership won’t be renewed.

I will say as a business and the greater good of general motorcycling, yes. But regarding your example, they have bigger fish to fry and will default to their master known as the FIM. I only renew due to competition, otherwise I wouldn't bother. Feld doesn't care about one or two riders who got popped according to the rules. The show still goes on.


vomiting equals disqualification.

Needs to be a riders union. Will never happen but it needs to happen.

The AMA, care about the riders? laughing silly sideways dizzy laughing sideways ermm

Hell, they don't even care about the sport itself. They just go through the motions of what has been in place for decades to keep the cash rolling in. What was the last good thing they did for the sport of moto? They usually come in on the end of everyone's coat tails with their "efforts".

Like most unions in this country they forgot their purpose and direction. Self perpetuation is now the guiding principle. When right to work killed the money stream...the unions just went to to company tit and said, "whatever you want".

Your question “does the AMA care...?”

No. I don’t think any of the sanctioning bodies have the butts that are on the seats in their best interests. The AMA is broad, SX is not a blip on their radar.

I suspect the only reason ama still has staff that go to Supercross races is because they are too incompetent to get jobs anywhere else.

I always thought they where a lot more involved than they are they really just are in the shadows very loosely connected to SX and MX it seems.
They collect money
And are a sanctioning body what does that really even mean?
