I think it's more stupid to host Matterley in March. Either way i'll still be going

Not stoked on Assen but at least its within driving distance, love a good road trip.

Matterly in March will be a total mess. If its anything like the March we had this year they may even struggle to run it.

Assen hosting the Des Nations is the biggest kick in the balls to fans who have followed the sport for decades.

Youthstream do not care one bit about the sport.

TWO rounds in Indonesia. What the feck.

Hopefully the new Argentina track will have similar soil to Villa La Angostura.

What coin are we offering on odds that at least 1 of those rounds doesn’t happen?? I’ll chuck a pineapple on it.
They’ll probably end up at India the year after.

Lol yeah, I thought the same when I saw march for Matterley. Are they mad... it'll be a mud bog

No US GP on calender. What's the chances they make it the opening round? Everyones on the right side of the Atlantic for the following round in Argentina. US riders won't want to have a go right in the middle of SX. Not sure why Assen other than the favourable infrastructure.

Assen MXDN ...big shit for you Loungo and FIM

|

Watching the gp at Assen feels 1 dimensional and synthetic. The most historic annual event in the sport should be held at real motocross facilities like it has the last 50+ years.

Hope the usa and other countries don't even bother sending a team.

Ok ok, we can dream lol. Otherwise, 4 rounds in Asia + 1 possibly in middle east (Saudi Arabia?) is not bad to grow the total number of riders globally, IF:

- the tracks are great (such as Argentina, btw other track in 19)
- with elevations (stop parking lot racing)
- in great locations (such as the Russian GP)
- with great visibility (see how french tracks are often on a hill ?)
- with lots of public,
- so with affordable tickets (not half a F1 ticket),
- that can see the riders (so no huge adverts everywhere to only see 1 lane on the whole track).

That is just a few basic criteria to consider it as a success. wink

I'd be all in for a boycott of MXdN by any and all teams next year. Nobody gives a shit about anything but money these days. Luongo wouldn't be holding the race there if he didn't think it would fill his pockets better than somewhere else.

Why is going to Indonesia, China and Hong Kong 'fucking ridiculous' and 'what the feck'?

I think last years timing of the indonesian round (rain season) and the remote location were not the best choices, but i don't see why a world championship should not go to Indonesia.

As for twice in Indonesia: There are 2 GP's in the Netherlands this year, and including Lommel 3 within 150 miles. The 2 indonesian rounds are 1000 miles apart, on 2 different islands.

I heard Elsinore opening round.

|

7/5/2018 9:38 AM

Everyone said that about Donnington park but I thought it was a great race and venue.

I don't care where the race is , just want to see the best guys racing it.

I wouldn't be surprised if the FIM begins choosing sand tracks every year so the Europeans win and make their bid as the most competitive championship in the world to newer viewers.

|

7/5/2018 10:50 AM

I think Assen is an awesome track, it's no Lommel or Valkenswaard but it's 10x better than Pangkal Pinang or Losail. IMO Assen isn't that much different from Ottobiano.

|

7/5/2018 11:05 AM

dont care much what type of track etc etc ...as long as racing is good , im good ...
riders need to be able to pass for a good race , most "classic" style tracks these days are just one lined and boring ... Germany , Russia etc ..... top 8 first corner finished in same order at finish , its not what i'd like to see

the funniest thing about this particular signature is that by the time you realise it doesn't say anything it's to late to stop reading it

Same for Franciacorta in 2009.
Great track, great racing (with Cairoli vs Reed battle) and 90.000 people.
Just an unforgettable weekend.

Or they are made to hold it in the USA to give your boys a chance? How many sand tracks has there been the past 6 years?

|

7/5/2018 12:05 PM

Question is, will Eli line-up or boycott the event until it's held in the USA again?

I was there. I can assure you there weren’t 90,000 people there. Maybe 10k at a guess. They were all crammed into one area so it looked packed on TV.

That would be like holding the MXON at Charlotte, how damn stupid.

|

7/5/2018 2:12 PM

Pretty stupid to have MOTOCROSS des nations on a man made track? I would have been fine with anywhere but Ass en . Not surprised tho been hearing rumors

|

7/5/2018 3:48 PM

Loungo has officially jumped the shark here. I thought it was a cool track for one round of MXGP and I sure as fuck wouldn't want to ride it, but I appreciate it's difficulty. But for MXON? Uh, big fat no. Very disappointing. And I think it will hurt the attendance of teams participating.
