I like how they have added more $1000 fines for infractions. That way the riders make less money. /sarcasm

Wow, those triple crown races just got allot longer than regular main events. Jesus, riders must be pissing everywhere these days to address it with a $1000 fine.....lol

Well then: now I want EVERY race to be a triple crown.

Sounds like a lot less downtime in the Triple Crown races

|

Any new rules against Wada?

|

The Race director is going to busy handing out penalties,I hope they are consistent and fair for everyone who incurs an infraction.

Transworld and people on social media say 3x15 but the AMA document attached in the Transworld article says 3x12 for 450.
3x10 for 250.

3x12 I'd assume. So minimum $1000 fine for not staying by the podium after a race? Seems a bit ridiculous IMO.

All this and they failed to address the elephant in the stadium, WADA / USADA.

“Apparel consistent with industry standards”. What exactly does that mean? Seven gear doesn’t seem consistent with the industry apparel as a whole. Does that mean Seven gear is banned? What specific event induced this rule?

The one dude showed up to the line in jeans last year at east Rutherford if memory serves.

Wow. So the director has more discretion ...Also what is consider safe and unsafe acceleration... Very vague

Better to rule it that way versus some triple stamped MPH limit.

Basically, the rule reads “don’t speed off track and enter in the nearest, safest place.“ I don’t see how you could make the rule any better.

some of those rules leave alot to interpration.

You realize that's less than last year, right? 3*12=36 min plus three laps. Last year was 10+12+15=37 min plus 3 laps.

Seems every year they take away more and more racing. A minute here, an lcq there, all of a sudden we get half the track timeangry

For the off track rule, would the transponders be able to track speed? I wonder if it would be possible to do an actual speed limit of say 25mph. Still pretty quick but not 450 tapped in third quick.

He was a wheelie boy from Harlem.

THERE IS NO SECOND MOTO IN LIFE!

And it keeps costing more for less racing to watch. ??

|

I'm sorry to see the 3 motos becoming equal length. The "little" guys made an impact last year, and it is less likely now. That makes for a more boring consitent result by the riders in the best condition. No thanks.
