is it just me or are there more than a few trees a little to close to the action at Iron Man Mx. Even if the stack hay bales, I think that they are going to have to reconsider having them so near the track

Are you going by the track map video or the actual track pictures? From what i have seen they dont seem like much of a problem.

This is based on what. Photos? Helmet cam?

Nearly every single helmet cam video I've ever done, there's been a comment that, "The track looks too narrow."

For every modern track, figure there's the width of the racing surface itself, and probably room for a mule to go by on each side.

Trees are almost everywhere around the tracks, but the one at Webb's video at 1:41 looks maybe close, especially when we all know how far off the track rider lands if he goes down, but we're OFF ROAD riders, we don't have safety zones like MOTOGP.

Not to worry, Utah is coming soon where you can bitch about the lack of vegetation.

Shade provides better dirt conditions. Thats why most of the tracks suck they mow down the trees for better tv viewing, losers.

Man people just love complaining.

I hope they don't fall over they might get dirty. What if they hit a rock? They need to cancel.

Take it to the limit, one more time!

Everything about that track is Amazing.

That's what MX tracks are suppose to look like.

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!

The contrast of red bud,budds,millville,and Indiana to muddy creek has me embarrassed for my home track.

Agreed
We were there and I practiced Friday and love the place.
Millville and redbud are my usual tracks.

Go hang in so cal if you don't like trees.
Don't tell us how to do motocross.

Yeah, It's motocross and it's not safe, but a few trees should be taken down there in the high speed sections. Saw a kid at Rio Bravo clip a tree back in the mid 80's. Killed him. That's the basis of my opinion.
