Let's take a Herlings for example 20 rounds of MXGP in the different countries+4 rounds of Dutch masters. It's all combined is 48 days of racing per year. I don't understand that complaining from US side that your guys have longer season, and so on and on. US.18 rounds of SX+12 rounds of MX=30 days of racing. It's 1/3 less than euro guys have to deal with

Don't forget that the US based guys have to do testing for both SX and MX. Which pretty much are two different sports that requires different equipment.

Separate riders for the separate disciplines. Both will have the time off from racing they need each year. SX or MX. Make your decision and live with it. It will help both the FIM SX series and the FIM MXGP series.

Different equipment? Stiffer suspension, but different equipment? Still dirt bikes.

I think all the AMA vs GP comparisons we are seeing around here are just crazy. Team US did not place first, and France did. Okay I get that. Congratulations Team France. You won. Forget all the other rubbish. The US will win again. Maybe next year maybe not. That is why they run the races. Either way there is nothing wrong with the system here. It is just fine. It just was not our year.

don't forget the off-season stuff. Oh, don't count 1 place twice either.

Sry .i'm forgot the off season stuff. It's for every MXGP guy +2or 3 races, and that means 4-6 motos more. So every full time MXGP guy have to race like 52-54 motos per year. Talking about witch seiries have the longer season
