I mentioned that last week in the race thread.

Looks like Feld cut back on the expenses. Those little plastic plaques are a little ridiculous.

They have better trophies at a local race

Lame for sure. But all the cool trophies will be outdoors anyway.

Cutting cost by leaving half dirt away and building arenacross tracks is worse.

I would be pissed if that was the trophy for the only podium or win of my career.

Guys...Guys...Guys...Come on.

Tim Ferry uses a first place trophy to hold a door open in his shed...highly doubt these guys care about the trophies unless it's a "first podium" or "first win" or a championship.

Podium finishers have so many of these, most of them are in storage or get tossed. Look at it from this angle...these are way easier to put in storage. HAHA

We were laughing at the trophies as well. Looked like our local crappy SX series awards.

I won a way cooler trophy at a Saturday night MX vs ATV unleashed tournament at the local track back in the day.

Make one trophy...big giant heavy silver trophy.

Each race winner gets to hold it, take a photo with it and stake a legit claim for it.

But only one man will take it home at series end.

It goes to every race and is ceremoniously put on stage during opening ceremonies...white gloves and all.


Don't need a trophy for each race.

I'm just glad Feld is putting on the racing this year.

All the trophies I won back in the day ended up in a landfill at some point.

I was raised just off HWY 126 in Valencia during the 80's.

Trophies serve as a reminder, they are not the prize. My smallest trophy is my first one and it’s still my favorite little piece of blue plastic I own.

Maby that's why Eli hasn't been on the podium much, he's just not into the trophies.

Watching SX podiums last night and my wife says, "Hey the trophy (plaque) that you came home with today is nicer than theirs" And that's not saying much! laughing laughing laughing

This one will be up in the garage for a while. I expected something slightly nicer than a piece of cardboard for that $85 entry fee though. Photo

Yea well I beat out about 35 other guys to get that 5th place trophy so it was a win for me. We had big gates in the 125 Beginner class back in the 70's.

How about "Earned a 5th place trophy"

I kept only the bottom marble from my first trophy

Solicit submissions for a fan-produced trophy competition in each city, with guidelines for size and a location for a standardized engraving plate. Have a straw vote (drop a ticket in the box next to your favorite) on media day determining a "podium" among submissions. Give the winner some sponsor shwag and a photo op on the podium with the winner of their trophy.

No major expense incurred, but better fan engagement and maybe cool (or at least unique) hand-crafted trophies.

Blue ribbons are next.😀🏁

Back in the day you could refuse the trophy and it would pay for next week's entry. Lotta guys did exactly that.
