And there goes Jeffro. One of God's own prototypes. A super high-powered mutant of some kind never even considered for mass production. Too weird to live, and too rare to die.

its hard to mx spring and fall here in michigan and this is why most michigan riders are excellent mud guys. back in the day our spring series for silverdome paid contingency money...so everyone raced rain or shine. made for some spectacular mud racing. no one worried about their bikes being crap after because you could make enough money to buy a new bike. lol.

Maybe I’m just optimistic...but seems to be some major over reacting off what I’m seeing. A few showers Friday (track watering). Nothing Saturday, and probably some rain Sunday. Doesn’t sound like Unadilla 87 or Foxhill 98 to me.

3 days off work
Plane tickets
VIP GOLD ticket
4 nights at the Aloft hotel
5 days of rental car
...... Not a cheap trip. Rain could really blow my buzz, if it floods out the track ! I don’t mind a little rain off and on, but a lengthy down pour on race day will straight piss me off devil

My phone is only showing Thursday rain, guess we’ll just have to wait and see what happens. I’ll be prepared for rain just in case

Weather.com is saying 40-50% chance of thunderstorms on Saturday and Sunday. It's not like it will be a slow steady rain. Probably hit and miss throughout the weekend. Probably won't be a full blown mudder, but could definitely get some rain. The US riders are good riders in mud either way.

Praying for clear skies and hot weather!

Someone said it won't be like a Foxhill 98' and they're right as it's a chalk base and gets particularly greasy when wet.

Having said that just pulled up a video of some Red Bud mud race with a lot of surface water. What kind of soil is it there?

I used to be indecisive, but now I'm not so sure.

Should’ve had it at Glen Helen. Everywhere else is too unpredictable.

Redbud seems to have more and more sand every year. Regardless of the weather it will be the best race all year.

Michigan in October... what do you expect? It is the MXdN and will be awesome no matter what! I have no regrets about Unadilla in 87, great experience. Edit- it is a myth that Euro riders are magically better in the mud too, not like they ride swamps thru the season.

Red Bud was hard pack two decades ago but since then they have brought in so much sand that it is a completely different surface. It can take a lot of water now.

This the "desNations" man! Embrace it either way. 87 at Unadilla was epic!

Not so much during the MXGP season but most Euros will neccesarily have a lot of local mud riding experience.
