Sipes could win, him and MR. Mac appear to be the only ones training for it.

I guess this means there is no chance of js7 entering the 2 stroke race.

Amazing that redbull can give fans something they want to see and build a website to make it even more engaging. Thats why they are successful.

Man having RC and MC race the event would have just put this over the top. Two of the most successful guys to ride 2 strokes in the modern era.

Next year they should expand on the 2 strokes and have a 125 class and 250 class.

Sounded like MC (on Pulp) would've be game had he not needed to wrap up the truck championship this weekend.

Man I'm so pumped for this thing I'm sitting here making 2 stroke noises at work w00t Lol seriously though, I can see this event getting bigger in the years to come and attracting more big names to show. As mentioned before its just a fun one off event that nobody really cares about being competitive at. Make a mistake? No big deal just pull up and get 2nd and move on to the next race. No embarrassment for not performing well, just all about the fun and sponsors get a plug too. Win-win for everybody

Wow you following me around, shocking. It was a simple question. Go find your safe space .

Ronnie Mac could be anyone. We all know the normal Ronnie Mac is Albertson, but who knows, maybe Canard could be Ronnie for this race. I think “Ronnie Mac” this year might actually put up a fight, all depending on who “Ronnie Mac” really is this year. I’m excited for this one!

That's an interesting point. I'd put my money on it being TP if its not actually Albertson. But either way... If I don't see at least 3 Boner Airs on each run, I'm going to be disappointed.

Would love to see James there in spite of all the haters.

Also want to see MC, TP and Fro in this.

And where is Kaven Benoit and Gared Steinke? Add them next year.

this is cool, but I dont get having the seperate class for them. it's cool for the guys that want to run 2 classes, but it seems like a missed opportunity here with the whole drama of "4 stroke vs 2 stroke". it seems like that would play out nicely in this event.

...i supose the smokers might not be fast enough. i don't know.

10/17/2017 1:36 PM

Anyone know if they sell tickets at the door? I take the CPA exam Saturday morning 10 minutes away from the race but don't know if I'll have the energy to go to the race after

The point is to have fun and draw in riders that wouldnt normally be competing. No way is RV lining up to race Jordan Smith on a 2 stroke he rode twice.

Kaven Benoit not in the list. He killed it on a 250 2T a few years ago.

Steinke is on the list. Better take a look again or get your eyes checked lol. He's listed at number 6.

As for Kaven Benoit it would be cool to see a Canadian at the event and seeing as he won back to back 250 championships on the 2 stroke he knows how to ride one. That being said I don't see it in his plans this year or any other year.

He got hurt riding SX last January so came into the MX season not 100%, re-aggravated it early in the season, sat out a couple weeks, came back and lacerated his liver. I believe he still has 1 other surgery to get done in order to fix some things in his ankle. You won't see him do any off season SX races anytime soon. He said at this point in his career the SX ship has sailed. Concentrating 100% on MX from now on.

Lol

Number one requirement of being a Red Bull athlete, "be an athlete." Maybe Pizza Hut is looking to endorse.
