Matthes gets the nets put in, but can HE get 3 more truck loads of dirt to cover the plywood 3 inches away from the track. Come on, how many guys are eating shit on the plywood.

Great post. Steve, your mission should you choose to accept it is to get Feld to pay for about 30% more dirt and build cool tracks...

And then fuck off 450s.

If I'm healthy enough to complain. I shouldn't be complaining.

I just see it as a consequence of not being able to keep it on the track. How many times do you see a guy go off the track, pin it down the side of a rythm lane and only lose one position. At least this provides a penalty.

This, it should be more slick on the side of the track! Steve Matthes memorial bacon grease finish?

Exactly!! They were all were trying to speed up on the plywood instead of slowing down.

I agree. Don’t go off the track and you won’t have to deal with it.

Should we give trophies to 15th place as well?

There need to be markers on the edge of the track, maybe every 5 or 10 ft. If you go off the track every marker you pass docks you one position. In a rythm section if you pin it down the whole lane, you will be severely penalized. It's a mistake, it should cost the riders as one.

Three inches of dirt over the edge of the track is not going to make a bit of difference.

This doesn't have to be that complicated or expensive (I don't think).. Couldn't they just lay down some rubber mat type material on the edges of the track? It would look cleaner, easier to walk on, and safer for the guys that happen to go off the track.

I say if you go off track you are required to go back on the track at that point or before whichever is safest

I like that idea. Maybe not every 5-10 feet, but a per obstacle basis, you go off and it's a set time penalty. You could have a safe re-entry points in precarious spots on the track where blending in immediately isn't safe. You may need more race officials to police it though.

I hate seeing guys haul butt down the side of the track and blend in without losing a position. Make a mistake and there should be a penalty.

If they made a space between the tough blocks as designated entry points then a tall cone or something to indicate it, you could lose a position for every entry point you missed.

Remind Feld of the sponsorship space right on that tall cone, and all of a sudden these re-entry points may become high priority safety designs.

Can we stop with this blame everything but the rider bullshit? if you dont mess up you dont go off the track. If you f up the rythm and miss the triple its your fault you got landed on. If you dont jump the quad right you break your pelvis.

Its not a track design issue. Its riders making mistakes. If you guys want safe then put everyone on a pw50 with no jumps and watch the sport die from boredom. /endrant.

It was CONCRETE, NOT plywood. There were sections at Anaheim that were plywood, but not last night...
Carry on..........
