How will this affect the riders win bonuses?

I doubt that the manufacturers will want to pay them the same as for 1 long main event.

Overall finish same as before. Maybe similar to heat eace bonus for moto win.

The 3 main events is basically the same as the 3 moto format you see in amateur racing. Person with the most points after 3 races/mains is awarded the overall win for the night/event. 1 bonus.

Now will they pay out a holeshot bonus for each main event? They should do what we do up here. If you grab both moto holeshots they double the pay.

Say they pay $1000 for a main event holeshot, grab all three and get an extra $3000. Slim chance of someone grabbing all 3 but it would give everyone an extra incentive to not back off. $6000 would sure be a nice bonus for having great starts.

Mike alessi could have raked in a bit more money this way.

The biggest change we have seen in decades, looking forward to it! The rider's will still get paid the same, they just have to do a bit more work. The Fans Win. I love winning. I hope in the future there are even more changes and I get sick of winning.

20k posts? Have you been in a coma? Just escaped from an undersea prison on Diego Garcia? Latvia had a total internet shutdown? How can you not know about the new SX format changes? Are you trolling us?

This was in October.

This is much better. Crash in a main doesn`t automatically ruin your weekend.
