To think that they are going to be able to get racers, infrastructure in place to have race's under the current climate in United States is complete bat shit. The country seems completely out of control and the health system is pretty much wasted right now.

Wouldn't want to be a racer and be injured at that time.

the fishy smell keeps hitting me on this one........it says that the events have been cancelled, not posponed, cancelled !!!! so if they have raced 11 races and the 7 missing have been cancelled, then the series is finished....
they even offer an complete refound of tickets, they dont even try to change tickets for the following events, they prefer to give the money back......
all signs i see say sx is done, despite the hollow promise of future races without dates or venues......

Where in the US are you? New York? Your statement is completely false for majority of the country.

Didn't you know? Americans need the rest of the World to tell them how it goes. or I guess they think that.

It may feel that way now. Just wait a bit.

Coronavirus has an infection rate of 3, meaning on average every person who gets it gives it to 3 other people. The flu has an infection rate ~1.4. That doesn't sound like a big difference, but it's huge.

Im in upstate ny. Problem is you only need 1 person to destroy a community even a city its crazy as they've been putting out statements as to who was at certain locations on specific days and wham dozens more now infected due to 1 single person. Same story over and over. Im thinking as long as there's a single case of the virus we wont be at una fucking dilla or any national standing next to anyone. Just my opinion but i dont think its going away anytime soon 😷

This virus stuff is far from over. We are in the earliest stages and have NO IDEA where it will go from here.

I want supercross back so badly. I want to wake up and go to work so badly. The reality is that making any statement about the “season” is blind and ignorant.

IF the rest of the season does take place in the fall, then maybe a bunch of the MX GP guys will come over for the remaining races. It could be like a Mini Supercross Trans-AMA kind of deal.

Actually the health system is only “wasted” in hard hit areas. My wife hurt her hand on the tablesaw on Monday and when she went to the emergency room it was the cleanest/slowest we’ve ever seen a ER in our lives. So although some areas are like war zones, the majority of hospitals are doing great and with the precautions in place they are probably safer them they’ve ever been. What this virus has done in the San Diego area is it’s keeping the people home who drag their kids to the ER every time the have a cough/sore throat/fever

You do realize these races will be in nearly 6 months time? There's no way we'll be doing a 6+ month quarantine/isolation. That's not how the world works.

There's a big difference between quarantine/isolation and packing 30,000+ people into a stadium. It's very optimistic to think we're there in six months. I'd love to be wrong about this.

Finishing this SX season doesn't require 30k people in the stands.

You would have to be foolish to think the world can function for over half a year with nobody working, making money and spending money. There has to be advancements and changes made at some point. What we are doing now is a band-aid fix. Not a long term or permanent fix. The approach has to be and will be different 6 months from now. It would mean we have made zero progress in half a year if it hasn't.

As a healthcare professional in a rural town, I beg to differ. The problem is, a small town doesn't need thousands of cases to overwhelm their hospital. My small hospital only has 8 ICU beds, 5 of which are typically occupied. Right now, we have all 8 occupied by Covid-19 patients on ventilators (we only own 3 and are renting 5). This is the issue that the average person isn't seeing.

So while the ED may seem calm when you go get your hand stitched up, the doctors and nurses are working in by far the most stressful conditions they've ever worked in as they simply run out of room and resources. It won't be long until our whole country looks like the horror stories that were coming out of Italy a week ago. We're still in the "calm before the storm" and we have a long way to go.

That's what the most people don't understand or not willing.
40 a 60% of the population will get infected and most of them will not have much trouble with it.
But the virus is spreading fast very fast so the health care isn't capable to help the people any more.
And the people who waved the problems away, what will you do if you are in the hospital with your love ones and there isn't room anymore on the IC and he's or she's needs oxygen.
The US is already past China with the most registered cases of Corona!, people be careful it isn't a flu!

At first it was like, oh, it's in China, not our problem. Then it was, oh, it's in Europe, it's their problem. And now it's, like everybody, oh, it's only in New York, no big deal, quarantine is for pussies

if you look at this chart you will see that the worst cases in europe are italy and spain. its most probably because of an soccer game, a champions league game between Atalanta from bergamo and Valencia from valencia, held in Milan´s San Ciro stadium....even a lot of players from both teams got infected.
when the near 50.000 spectator returned home, the speed of spreding was so high that the healthcare systems were unable to respond......this is not a tale, unfortunatly it is the reality !!!!!!
and that is the exemple of the real danger of helding sport events with large numbers of spectators, and the reason for sx to be stopped..
the virus by itself is not deadly, the danger is how low are the numbers of healthcare means ready for so high numbers of citizans in a given place, and that is what makes it deadly,the lack of means to treat a pneumonia !!!!!!
so it take time until we have a vacine or meds that will treat it not letting it became pneumonia, until then all events that join large numbers of people together are really a death wish for the elder or the ill ........

One of the least informative announcements ever.

Basically, the plan is to have more SX races this year - but feasibility, locations and dates all TBD!

I guess it sort of answers the question of - Are they just giving Eli the Championship?

But with everything else being TBD, it would seem even that question is TBD.

The tentative plan is to race in September/October. They are working to secure venues but so is every concert/show/event that had to cancel.

Whether you're pessimistic or optimistic on how the world will heal and carry on, businesses have to plan for a return, regardless. What if things look much better in a few months? It will be far too late to do anything about it at that point. Planning now is the only way to be prepared IF AND WHEN things are able to happen. It drives me crazy for people to bash SX and MX organizers for making plans. They can't snap their fingers and hold events. They have to plan far ahead, even with a high chance of adjustment. You don't think they know that there is a chance for more changes or cancellations? Of course they do. This is all unfolding in front of our eyes. But if you want to bad mouth a company for making a tentative plan for racing 6 months from now, I'm out on that.

What about the teams and riders? How do they feel? So they don’t get an off-season this year? They aren’t racing, but they can’t treat the present time like it’s the off season. Right now they are riding and training for a series they don’t know or not will run. Then they have to run 7 SX rounds in Sep/Oct? When do they get to chill and test their 2021 SX bikes?

Consider this their off season. Everyone is going to have to compromise and adjust. There are far bigger concerns than riders getting time off. My guess would be that they are resting this very second and will pick up their training again mid April, giving them 8 weeks before the first possible race.

If they do indeed race into October as we are hearing, keep in mind that they won’t need as much time to “get in shape”. They will already be in shape.
