Apologies for the 10th thread on this, but jesus christ, why was this event even run?

Unfortunate that this could affect someones championship.

My only gripe is that they probably should have pumped the standing water off the start straight. Aside from that, all good.

Its moto... Its the “hardest sport on earth”. NFL players play in snow, riders ride in the mud, thats just how it works.

...dont want it to affect your championship? Dont suck at riding in the mud. Simple math.

Sweet jesus! Don't like mud? Don't ride mx bikes then and stick to tarmac!

I LOVE watching mud races as it makes the racing far more interesting. It's nice to see these racers look like mere mortals.

I had to make another “look at me because my opinion matters” thread.

Do you think we sucked at the MXON in adverse conditions? Imagine if we quit running races because it was muddy. C'mon guys, y'all can't be serious?

Yeah, so "unfortunate" that they lose a championship from lacking a necessary skill on a dirt bike... Or, at least have the wisdom/mentality to manage a mud race properly.

This isn't golf.

Which of the normal front runners wasnt a front runner last night? The only person to be able to kick them selves is Dylan and Barcia. Smoked clutches, and that is something they control.

ummm...if you had the intelligence to actually read and and understand what was posted in the 9 other threads, you would know, and then you wouldn't need to embarrass and humiliate yourself by asking the same fkng question.

We've reached an all time pussification level when people want MX/SX races cancelled because of mud.

Unfuckingbelievable.

What if the dirt is too soft on some east coast tracks and it ruts up really bad, would that affect someone's championship if they're a better hard pack rider? What would you preferred them to do? Cancel the race, even though they could do several jumps? Just have a 16 round series? This isn't a local series or NASCAR, with purpose built tracks where they can push an event back a day. It was race last night or don't race at all. The only time I can remember a race actually being cancelled was Kenworthy's, and that was because the track was literally under feet of water. I just really do not understand the line of thinking that says "they shouldn't race if it's muddy."

These are the same people who are trying to shut tracks down

Slide out of the gate on the mud, goggles get filled in and clutch disintegrates. Sounds like a real representation of supercross to me.

To make is this interesting why don't we water the tracks to this extent on purpose then? If it's SO hardcore racing.

I reckon the only thing more ridiculous than racing in the mud is watching racing in the mud.

I thought it was a great race like Daytona 08. It's Motocross / supercross man up people.

If you would have turned those fans and live tv away it would have done more harm than good.
I like riders racing on normal condition so we can see the speed but the elements play a small factor in a 17 round series.

If it was up to people like the OP they would also want to cancel racing at tracks like Southwick.. That would have an adverse affect on the championship since only a few top riders can master the sand..

Southwick
The sands of New England bring us Southwick, a legendary American motocross track nestled in the trees behind a western Massachusetts high school. Southwick makes its triumphant return to the AMA schedule in 2016, because it always will be “the sand race” to AMA MX pro racers. Soft beach sand over a harder base layer make Southwick a brutal racetrack once a few laps have been thrown down on it. The biggest and scariest braking bumps of the year can always be found here.
Gnarliest feature: The sand. Southwick does not have much in the way of single track features, because there’s only one thought any rider may have when uttering its name: So much sand.

"Clutch disintegrates"

Give me a fucking break. These are the best dirt bike racers on the planet, if they can't manage their machine enough to make a clutch last 15 minutes then they deserve to DNF and lose the points.

Some gripes Ive heard here are pretty ridiculous.

Malcolm crashes in the whoops- whoops suck get rid of em

Tracks are 1 lined- we need an obstacle that will separate riders where some excel some dont

Davalos crashes big at the start last year- Starts are dumb, dangerous, get tid of em n do staggered

Kenny gets 2nd after staggered start- Staggered starts are dumb get rid of em

Barcia rolls triple gets arm broken- Triples are dumb just fill em in n hit big tabletops...

Mud races suck- cancel the night show

-We need something that will shake up the series sometimes

Dungey says all the right stuff- Booooring, we need more personality and drama

Coop finger guns Kenny- What a brat we need professionals out there


Luckily they just keep doin what they do its a great product...

If they allowed off road mud specialists to race a race like this, wouldn't surprise me to see a complete no name guy win a SX.

In these kind of events, luck play a big factor. Ask Barcia. This muddrace has absolutely nothing to do in SX environment, nothing. Hillbilly freak show is what it looked like on TV, fastest guys on the planet rollin around and over jumps like they never been on a sx track before.

Makes the sport look ridiculous.

17 rounds, I would really hope Feld start considering to drop one bad race per year.
