The rhythm section after the big uphill triple is clearly built for amateurs and smaller bikes.The pros are the only ones who jump it the way they do by jumping onto the tabletop. Why not build something that challenges the best riders in the world? It's lame to have pros racing on a track where their talent far exceeds that of who the track was built for.

It's motocross. Not build the biggest jumps for the pros only. Just because there aren't any massive jumps doesn't mean it isn't challenging. That track was pretty gnarly by the 2nd motos and both Roczen and Tomac were making some mistakes, meaning they were being challenged. Good racing can happen on a flat grass track just as much as a man made jump fest.

I didn't say make the jumps bigger. I would prefer something unique there rather than a big jump. But it is silly to have the pros launching through there because the section is built for slower riders.

Amateur section? That was one of the more technical sections of the track. I was standing right there for part of the day and to see the precision they have to have to time the landing was awesome to say the least.

Roczen and Tomac both made up a ton of time on everyone in that "amateur section". That was one part of the track where you could see them both make up 2-3 bike lengths on anyone in front of them.
