How is that going to work? There is an Easter break 2 weeks later or Seattle becomes the final?

The only other time is during the 1 weekend off before outdoors. I don't know what would be more difficult, having the race on a scheduled off holiday weekend or during the tiny break these riders/teams get before going outdoors for a whole new series...

If I was going to guess (and this really is a guess, because I don't know of any behind-the-scenes plans), I'd think we might see a doubleheader at a future round as a make-up race.

Matthes tweeted that he’s heard rumours of there being a doubleheader in one of the remaining cities.

That release doesn't make it totally clear but I take this sentence "The 13th race in the 2020 Monster Energy Supercross series will be rescheduled" to mean the round is being rescheduled elsewhere. If they were just postponing they wouldn't have to give all those refunds, many would want to keep their tickets.

What a mess it could be if they scheduled during an outdoor race!

If they do a doubleheader could they change the track design enough to run it backwards for the second race like they did at MEC? That'd be better than the same track twice.

Crazy. Regardless of what anyone thinks of the virus or the media, the NCAA now playing the entire tourney with no fans and NBA games now scheduling games with no crowds, this may not be the last event to be cancelled. Hope that isn't the case.

Denver's an East/West and Vegas(West) is a Triple Crown. Seems like Vegas would be the most likely for the Seattle(West) re-schedule/double header, but a standard format. Photo

So..... is it cancelled? Or being Rescheduled?

That's two completely different things.Such a weird PR.

It makes it hard to plan ahead when you don't know how long the prohibition on large events is going to last. I assume it will be held elsewhere.

#metoo, but I suspect you’re right. Just like your local idiots at Costco buying all the toilet paper in sight, other cities will soon follow. Why react when we can overreact?

There have been 99 confirmed cases in Washington . . . In the last 24 hours. Washington is the hardest-hit state ATM. Not really an overreaction to take action there.

I hate to be the bearer of bad news, but this is just the beginning. Everything will be canceled soon if it involves crowds of people. We are weeks away from being on full lock down in all populated areas.

I was one of those who thought this was media hype and a bunch of BS like many of you. But seeing how it's now affecting my business, my clients, and customers it's unraveling right now and it's going to snow ball quickly. It will lat months unless they announce a vaccine ASAP. Who knows what effect it will have on the economy and housing, especially if people can't work to pay their mortgages. Hold on for a wild ride ladies.

I'm not sure why people are preparing for an illness like it's an earthquake or natural disaster. Toilet paper? I've yet to see violent bowel movements as a symptom for respiratory disease. Bottled water? I also hadn't heard about a lack of running water being an issue.

Here in ny they shut down a city block-ish downstate. I wouldnt want to tangle with the national guard trying to get my kid some tp.
Actually locked down not shut down. Bad wording

I expect it to be a double header at Vegas. Saturday TC and Sunday standard format. All of the baseball stadiums would be out since the season has started. It will need to be a WC race and Denver is out since it is a E/W shootout.

That will be good enough for me.

Screw the governor...

People are stocking up because they don't want to go to the store and risk exposure.

The man speaks common sense!!!

It's what the media caused by whipping people into a frenzy.... which is more dangerous than anything once it gets out of hand.

Glad no one is getting the flu anymore.
80,000+ people die every year from that shit.

I guess if the people feeding you the water are not at work , guess you won't be getting any.

Just wait until they tell everyone to go home from Indy this weekend. Shits going to be crazy.

People are preparing to be isolated inside their homes if we go on full lockdown. I spoke to my friend in Italy this morning and they are under heavy restriction to go anywhere, and they're nearing full lockdown meaning no one can leave their house for 2 weeks. If we were to follow suit, you can imagine the kind of havoc this will cause. People will need to have supplies at home for their families for several weeks.

I don't get the bottled water thing either unless people are thinking the tap water will eventually run out if there's no one working at the water district to treat the water.

They need to come up with a vaccine ASAP to avoid a mass meltdown. It's not so much the fatality rate, but at the rate it's spreading and how many people will need treatment. They will not have enough hospital beds in Italy to care for everyone.

Crazy times for sure.

They're saying this could be 10x as deadly....that's why they are trying to stop it from spreading.

It's so crazy here right now. The only good thing I've seen is light traffic 👍. But the shit at the stores is unreal as well as price gouging. I should have seen this coming . one of my friends owns a company that they sell baking equipment in their prime distributor is in China and they couldn't get parts for their ovens back in late December and he was complaining about it. Here we are 10 weeks later. There factory had been shutdown for 3 weeks already back in December

Based on the evolution of the virus in Italy it wouldn't surprise me if this weekends race is the last one. Two weeks ago there was no indication that the whole of Italy would be locked down yet look where they are.

We have a third confirmed case in Utah as of this afternoon and already The University of Utah said that in the morning they'll announce whether they will close campus classes for the reminder of the semester. I guess students are rioting at Ohio State since they announced closure.
