They are really hyping up supercross this year during commercials and on the local news. I just watched a Cooper Webb piece on the Channel 7 news and it was a very long interview, with his bike on display. Good stuff for the sport. They did a good job of explaining the physical intensity and max heart rates to the general masses who think you just twist the throttle and ride around.

Not something you'd see on local news here in WI. One thing I envy about where you live...

Years ago my buddy took a chick to A1 with us that he was sorta “seeing” to put it nicely and it was her first time ever watching any sort of MX racing. After the second heat, she says, “this is it? I could do this”. I tried to explain to her that in all my years of riding and racing and being fairly quick at our local tracks, that I’d look like an absolute squid out there. She looked at me with a straight face and said, “well, you must not be that good”. I looked at my friend, shook my head and spent the rest of the night, watering down my Coors Light with tears and pondering my existence in the world.

Do It In The Dirt!

Well if you don't include the physical aspects of racing it really isn't very hard.

I came into work after racing a GNCC and I was a little worn out so one of my co-workers was asking me about it. She told me it was interesting someone as young as I am could be worn out after riding for two hours because her dad can ride his Harley Davidson for two hours no problem.

That's right. And football players and baseball players are much better athletes than these guys who ride a bike around the track. It's so easy.

You guys are totally right , and I completely forgot that part.

So funny reading this stuff. I had my high school reunion a few years back and a guy I knew that used to tell me pretty much the same thing , actually got on some gear and road a track with one of his buddies. He said at first it scared him a bit and then once he started getting a little more confident , he rode it a bit faster. Said he couldn't believe how fast he was getting winded , and didn't realize how physical this sport could be. he then said , and I quote ( What I guess his buddy said )..." wait till you hit second gear! " He said that he was extremely humbled that day haha.

And there goes Jeffro. One of God's own prototypes. A super high-powered mutant of some kind never even considered for mass production. Too weird to live, and too rare to die.

The flip side is when people ask you if you were in the race they saw on TV that weekend.

One of our deputies at work asked me if I had raced that weekend. I think I replied with "Monster Cup? Thats not really my style" or something to the effect. Most people are 98% clueless that moto even exists.

You accidentally put a question mark at the end of this statement. Just thought I'd help you out.

Also, Couldn't agree more. Much worse.
