I thought the riders said that that's probably the worst feature ever on the track? Track designers still not caring what they say.....

I think it’s awesome and gives a nice change to the usual SX track layout.

I ripped a start from Egypt and I was happy about that.

Should do a sand start section all the way to holeshot line.

I agree ive though that before
Even just the 1st 30-40 feet and ban the start devices

Anyone remember that sx track that was completely sand in 88 or 89? Be cool to make a track like that again.

I think the difference on this one was that the landing wasn't sand like we've seen in some previous wall-to-sand sections (and I'm thinking of Atlanta in particular). It was more like a wall to step-down, and then into the sand corner.

For a Pro track with dedicated flagger's the wall is a cool obstacle to slow bikes down, and give a different look.

The sand was not related. Not like MEC jumping into sand whoops.

I hate the thought of blind jump trickle down to the amateurs.

That was prab my favorite part of the track, I thought it was great and forced the guys to be on it or they would lose a lot of time or even go down. Look great on tv with them blasting through the sand. Bring on more

The wall and sand sections are supposed to be difficult, not smooth.

I liked it. Difficult, but not dangerous.

The guys said that after ATL 2017 cause it was a sand wall into sand section, and they didn’t like it cause it caused severe vision issues and got them blasted with sand lap after lap. Marv even said he didn’t like it that night cause it got him and the bike too dirty....Lol.....these guys....grin
