Out here in the fields, I fight for my meals. I get my back into my living. I don't need to fight, to prove I'm right. I don't need to be forgiven.

Yeah, the guys making the $$ are going to campaign for the guys 4 secs a lap off the pace.

Like someone else on this forum stated previously, Sx and Mx are one notch above lawnmower racing. That's not much of the truth being stretched either.

Be wise, Organize ! 😂

Ya know what’s funny? The AMA’s suppose to be the organization representing the riders.

The top dogs are making too much and the bottom dogs are too busy dying for a dollar. They have no common ground, and no need for organization.

Limegate could’ve been the catalyst, but nobody (few) really cared they just wanted to be mad on IG and get a $7k check.

Welcome to America! This is exactly how the world is, not just supercross. I am a retired union millwright and am still a proud union member. In saying that having a riders union would not close the gap in pay. Furthermore why shouldn’t the best in the world not make as much as possible? I stopped racing because the second to the last year i raced 1983 I spent $23k racing and made $46 dollars in purse money! Just like in the real world you earn your pay!

It’s more sad to me, but your right. The fact the AMA has never complained for more purse money for the riders is a joke

I can just imagine people pulling the MAGA graphics off their bikes and replacing them with Vote Bernie

I can’t believe no ones thought of this before!!!


How much will we as fans like a Riders Union when there’s a work stoppage and a strike?

Alright Lunger, Let's Do It

If they strike, who are they striking against?

Is Roczen striking against Honda?

Feld is not his employer.

Who are the riders striking against?


"A" works for "B" but is striking against "C"?

How does that work?

It's even worse than that; Roczen is an independent contractor who is not an employee of American Honda, Inc. It is in his own best interests to race and do well, not to sit out.

Rider input should be gotten before SX Finals are shortened.
