I've said it before and I'll say it again, both sides need to work this out together. Add another week or two to the AMA calendar (not a race but an extra weekend off before Nationals for example). And likewise FIM and YS needs to tighten the GP schedule up by a week or two. That way the MXoN date should work out for everyone involved without any major brakes between the end of either series and MXoN and everyone should be ready to go.

Jeez USA, if you don't want to go don't go. You've got nothing to prove, we all know the talent/speed you guys possess and given the right circumstances I'm sure you guys could win MXoN like you have many times before.

But can we stop with the excuses/whinging about it? No one has an assault rifle to your head you know?

And you can turn the patriotism down a notch jeffro, makes you seem real defensive, almost like you're worried the MXGP boys have got your pace covered now or something whistling

Little orphan Annie is such a little loud mouth. Last week he said every country on earth boo's and cheers against us at the MXoN's. ( Which they don't ). He's mad at me because I'm an American , and come from the same country that has been whuppin' their fucking ass's the past 35 years. " She " ...little orphan Annie has a chip on her shoulder.

It's awesome being an American!

Some of those GP guys DO have us covered or matched in speed depending on where the race is. I have no problem admitting that at all. I don't slam other countries riders , like a half dozen Brit's on here do to ours. Fuck em'!

Sad but true, man, sad but true. It's like the one and only area where the Europeans seem to have us covered. It's not as though I'm gonna watch soccer or cricket. They settle soccer matches with penalty kicks and think it's high sport. Hell, they have "best of two" series in soccer and think that makes sense. (I mean, let's change the NBA Finals to best of eight, right?)

But then ... they have F1 and MotoGP and MXGP ... go fucking figure.

No!
So basically Roger wants the MXoN to be in the middle of the MXGP season, then why european riders should race it in the middle of the season if they're already fighting for something better (the championship of course)? Just to take useless risks? No way... they would just dodge the MXoN like the americans are doing these years, or even worse they would just race it safely only to respect sponsors obligations, simple.
Smart guy Roger tho, that would be a great plan to make your team win again!

Just adjust the date of the MEC instead. Put it 1 week before the Supercross starts so there would be no more excuses for anyone hopefully.

Most sensible and easy answer right here. And guess what, both sides would benefit from it and its not a huge change to either series.

BOTH sides working together to help the event be the best race of the year.

don't step into the trap guys! Arguing about the timing of this event falls right into the trap of the sore losers AMA supporters. The fact remains the date of the event has not changed much since the times team USA was dominating the event. They are throwing up these excuses ONLY because they had their asses handed to them since 2011. Something that the GP boys were used to. The difference is we are good losers, they are not!!! Im not referring to all American MX fans, but those who can't accept that whilst all things have remained equal, their team is no longer winning.
Sore losers!!!

Well as a "Euro", I still get why AMA guys are "meh" about having a months break between the end of their season and MXoN. Sure it didn't seem to be an issue when they were winning, but still it's true that the event could be a few weeks earlier. Some might be happy that US guys use it as an excuse and not go which might drop their chances for a win, but as a fan I would be happier to see the best US riders there. So yeah, a change to the date would be in place imo. But again, both sides (GP and AMA) need to meet eachother halfway to make it work.

Yeah they should add the MEC to the weekend dlprogram of the mxdn.
They could do the race on the parking lot, for example on lunch break

Agreed too. It isn't just about the 3 Americans who go....it's about all the riders that race the AMA series. I'm sure guys like Marv , Kenny , Dean , Dylan , ect ...would dig the schedule change as much as the American riders.

What's the problem with 4 weeks break between series ? Gives the US rider chance to rest any injuries, do some specific training for the mxon circuit, head over to europe couple weeks early for sight seeing & testing similar circuits locally.

All seems very pessimistic whinging about it team USA.
