The idea that the 3 mains are 3 different lengths is pure genius!

6 minute winners are worth as much as 16 minute finish’s.

6, 10, 12 min. for the 250's (plus 1 lap for all motos)
8, 12, 15 min. for the 450's (plus 1 lap for all motos)

Starts are even more important!

I think it's super lame. Should be consistent. Like monster cup

Its 35 mins of racing. Will test start skills(sorry eli) and endurance. More time than we normally get to see them. Im not complaining. All out sprints will be exciting to see.

This has been debated for decades. How long should it last? 1 minute, 5 minutes, 15 minutes, half an hour?
I am against SX changes.

Oh wait, I thought this was about sex.

Not only important, but for the first two motos in each class it's almost everything which I'm not a big fan of. Good thing it isn'f for the entire series. Starts should be important, but if you for example fall you should have a chance to make some of it up atleast imo

But doesn’t it do a good job of balancing out the guys that are quick starters for a moto with those who do better at longer motos? I like it, it’s a great experiment!

I do think it's a great move, and one that I don't recall ever seeing Vitalized before the announcement.

Now the dream team: Mookie, Freise, Alessi, and get Short back. It's almost like a heat race win. Unpredictable chaos and 3 chances to blame it on a bad start.

That would make for some of the best racing we have seen in a long time.

Awesome...6 minute main will be an absolute sprint.
Great chance for anyone to take the win.

As long as the powers that be allow a bit of rubbing for the shorter mains "Arena Cross Style". I want to see aggressive riding (which is different then takeout's in my opinion) rewarded

Strap yourselves in for the advertisement that is set for broadcasts next year, I'm betting it will be an unpresidented amount of painful commercials.

Keys to the race:

Get a good start.
Blitz the first six laps.
Don't crash.

With an 8 minute race, Alessi could get the win with a killer hole shot. He has held a lead for 8 minutes before...(ok guess would need it for 9 minutes due to the +1)
