As many have repeated here, never was a huge fan, but after tonight, I am. For all those that take a ride on the back of the Alpinestars buggy over to the truck to get checked out for a sore knee, twisted finger, sore back, or torn shirt because they know in the end the check is gonna cash.............watch this crash and rethink that ride.

You know Mitch loved to see the grit his rider showed. He always said he'd rather pay for results than the amatuer hype. Hannah would be proud!

Respect Cameron.

After watching his interview, it was pretty obvious he was was in pain while limping off. Anyone who can push through pain, race and, end up on the podium, definitely has my respect.

Vital: He shouldn’t race. He shouldn’t be allowed to restart.

McAdoo: Hold my beer, watch this.

That was one hell of an effort! WOW. Much respect and admiration.

Yeah I was honestly instantly thinking the worst and I wasn’t going to see him moving at all. Last time I made a physical outburst like that was when my boy Zacho cleaned out Savatgy for the championship win. That was for excitement, this one tho was pure holy fuckin horror lol

The fact that he got up, on the bike and raced was just motivating to me. I became a huge Macadoo fan right there. He deserves all the accolades comin to him.

Fuck ya dude! Fuckin fuck ya

Got the attention of a primarily stick and ball 🏀 🏈 🏒 sports site (and probably more out there)

“There are tough guys and then there’s 23-year-old tough guy Cameron McAdoo who made himself some supercross fans Tuesday night after what he went through during the 250SX main event at Atlanta Motor Speedway....”

Me too. I thought I had finally witnessed someone die on a supercross broadcast. Huge props to him for lining back up.

I thought he was just punch drunk talking when he said Bodnar said he was good to go on the hot mic. I wonder if that actually happened.

I guess that one way to bring more fans to the sport.
The McAdoo way. Look mom, no hands.

It is but at the same very telling. Our sport, hobby or pastime, whatever you want to call it only seems to draw mainstream attention when something visually ugly like this happens. I wish they could focus on the athleticism and strategy motocross is instead of only bringing it up when someone gets hurt, killed or has a spectacular crash. Would they have run this story if there was not a camera on Mcadoo to record the crash from all angles? I mean the accident still happed and he still got up and put in a podium finish.

I guess in the world of clickbait and sensationalism this is to be expected except that this has been going on long before a click or "like" was a thing. MX is niche and extreme and the general public isn't so at some point we need to quit trying to sell it to the masses. DV couldn't have been more correct.

Props to the kid, I bet he is feeling it today! I couldn't imagine being his parents and watching that go down, had to be a grueling couple of minutes for Mama Mcadoo. We should send the gal some flowers or something today. Good to be young and flexible, can you imagine if that happened to one of us 40 or 50+ weekend warriors! I would have broken like a bag of glass!

Wife was watching the race with me as she usually does, but left the room when we watched him wad. We both let out horrified gasp. She asked how he was doing a few minutes later (from the other room she was in) and i said "this mother fucker is lining up!!!!!!!!" she came running back out saying "no fucking way"! it was something to witness for sure and we are now fans of that kid for life! True fucking grit!

The same could be said about other sports as well. I really don’t pay much attention to any other sport unless, there’s a short clip of it on the news. Even then it’s just a damn, hope that guy/gal is ok and move on.
Selling it to the masses by sensationalism are generally stories lacking accurate information. What is there to report if it’s another uneventful day at the office? Unfortunately, pics, and videos that bring people out of their comfort zone, draw attention.

Tough kid! He is the antithesis of some of the whiney baby racers on some of the teams today. I hope Cameron goes on to great success.

I’ll bet that torn groin hurts today!!Like a real kick to the nuts

Dude, did you see the riders on each side when he lined back up in the gate? They both kept looking over like "WTF, what are you doing here?!?!?!?" It was pretty funny!

Think Carson Mumford could learn something from him ?

He wasn’t in it for no stinking participation trophy. He made sure he earned a real one!

4/14/2021 7:20 PM

I'll play devil's advocate, if there was no red flag he wasn't getting back on that bike.

So are you playing devil's advocate to the opinion that Cameron showed grit? Because he didn't immediately jump back on the bike? Seems more like trolling for attention.

4/14/2021 9:04 PM

Chuck Norris would approve

I was a moderate fan of macadoo now I’m a huge fan

Anyone saying he shouldn’t have been allowed to race would be the same people complaining if he chose not to line back up...just looking for something to talk crap about

|

4/14/2021 9:18 PM

I haven't seen something like that in a long time, to go for it after that was a fair effort.

However the most heroic ride I've seen is James Stewart daytona 2011, not only did he get up after a massive off he put in probably the best ride on a SX track.

|

4/14/2021 9:23 PM

Much respect to the kid. Became a fan after watching him put in that ride.

Speak softly and carry a big stick.

4/14/2021 9:54 PM

this likely has already been said. but.

we all see chad reed fly through the air, landing on the side of that jump and getting up and taking off. everyone and anyone said "wow"................

this crash, 20x's more violent and boom he is off.


everyone questions the rider, his thoughts, etc. what else would he do? championships are not won simply by winning it all, it's by saving the bad day.

my question. what would be wrong with the bike? after that kind of his, throttle, triple clamps, etc. stuff could go very wrong hucking another huge jump and flat landing it....to find out the bike is really broke.

what's going to be next? because it's going to take one hell of a hit to top this one. the dude is lucky and tuf as nails.

4/14/2021 9:57 PM

I would like to formally start beating the drum for McAdoo to be on the MXdN team. We need that kind of heart alongside the #16. I don't even care that we haven't gotten to outdoors. We need that kind of grit on the line.

Just like Chad Reed’s crash at Millville, I think it garnered national attention not for the gnarly crash but the true grit of the rider getting back on the bike and resuming the race. That’s the kind of attention I’d think we’d all approve of.
