Sx only

Is brayton on to something? A guy who only rides sx has to improve his sx lap times. It seems to my uninformed self that if a guy did aus, a few
Overseas events and come into a1 with all that under their belt it would yield the best results. I wonder what would happen if a factory team like honda did this with someone like roczen? Would he be unstoppable in sx? I know these guys get paid alot of money to ride both mx and sx for max exposure for the brand, but nobody really cares who came in second.

There is so much more money paid to riders for Supercross that is is inevitable that this will expand.

Brayton is absolutely on to something! I'm just not sure why more don't follow in his footsteps. I assume the money is decent. And at his age, does he really want to spend his summer battling the best the US has to offer in MX? Seems like a nice way to extend a career while lining up against guys most have never heard of instead of lining up against Roczens, Tomacs, Moose-cans and the rest.

He's on to something like MC was 20 years ago, then Reed was, then Stewart was...

I agree with you on this. I'd go out on a limb to say he is probably the oldest rider HRC has ever signed to race SX, so something is working......

Webb said the SX championship is worth almost a million more than a MX championship.
Aren't there investment accounts that pay at least 10% guaranteed if you have more than $1million invested. One SX championship and you could retire.

I actually think it’s a good idea for people who are later in their careers and it can probably add a few years, wish RV would have done it and won another couple titles instead of retiring.

Did Lil Hanny's lap times improve when he went SX only?

For someone in Brayton's position in the twilight of his career it makes sense. For the most part though I don't like it. I didn't like it back when McGrath did it. His life his career but I thought it sucked and set a bad precedent. Didn't like when Stewart did it either. This from a selfish fan standpoint. If they want and can get that kind of contract more power to them I guess.

This is pretty funny - there isn’t an investment/account on the planet that will guarantee 10%! Keep in mind that $1Million gross is not the same as $1Million net, but either way, that’s not an amount that can be lived off of from 28 years old on...people often forget how young these guys are when they “retire”

Yes, this may be of benefit if, Aus and Europe events were SX and not Arenacross, and if the rider could stay 100% healthy.

Well i figure when the switch in the latter half of sx to riding mx and then dont ride sx until boot camp its gotta costs some 10th’s or more. Now with so much talent out there and guys who are better at mx maybe its time they start thinking in that direction. I know that $$$ and incredible talent rule the day, but perhaps if you dont have tomac, roczen, webb a team like jgr or motoconcepts or rocky mountain should give this a shot.

1 million after taxes and a mechanic bonus is closer to $600,000.

Props to HRC for supporting him.

No, the more money you have invested the less the guaranteed interest is....unfortunately 🤷‍♂️

Why does everyone on this site get butthurt when someone brings up anything about SX being more important or profitable than MX?

Wait until Feld decides to go to a 21 race schedule. 7 races, weekend off, 7 races, weekend off, 7 races. Finale Memorial Day weekend.

This isn’t his first year going sx only. How did it fair for him going into A1 last year? Maybe it’s helping his career last longer but if you go off of results he went from 5th overall 2018 to 10th in 2019.

You could live off of $1M earning 10%, but then your initial investment wouldn’t be compounding like it could if you left it alone. But yeah you could pull that off.

It's not so much the SX only thing, guys have been doing that for 20 years, but I believe it's the couple of months of SX racing leading into A1 that makes the difference for Brayton.
However if someone like Roczen, who has to do MX as well, did this he'd be burnt out by half way through the outdoors.

Factor in all the other money he's made, and he probably doesn't have to work a day after he decides to retire living off of interest. Looks like vital has a lot of retirement experts. How about some financial advice for the top riders from my down voters? Anyhow, I don't blame anyone for going sx only where the money is. It's a smart play if the race team will allow it, and they can have more of a life.

600 grand i can easily leave one career for another living cheap. I can pick up a couple rentals and use that cash flow to start another career.
