Great riders = great racing so for me it was a succesful event.

It is very rare to see both many top AMA and top GP riders going at it. The track offered a good compromise too.

It is really unfortunate the crowd didn't pack the stadium.

Hey, remember when Dungey decided not to race the MXdN but then was at the SMX Cup a week later?

was the track supposed to be a joke?

I wouldn't pay to see that honestly. Track was a too easy.

Might help the GP guys if they actually had to practice real rhythm sections instead mildly rolling bumps. There's way worse whoops in the CA desert.

The idea was good but the execution was bad.

The rider line up was awesome, it was basically as good as it gets (they obviously had the OEMs on board). But the track wasn't good enough and the location was horrible. No one in that area of Germany was ever going to pay expensive tickets to watch a indoor MX/SX race.

"Didn't pack the stadium"? That's one way of putting it. The place was empty.

F1. MotoGP. MXGP. Screw the rest.

Bercy/Lille SX has been going strong for almost 30 years.

That is why I guess we may not see a 2nd SMX, unfortunately.

Both spectators hitted the beer tank though smile

Waste of time, nobody cared, not even the fans. Of course on paper it was quite cool, in terms of the line up of riders that were there. But even though there was some big names there none of them were into it, and only KTM actually managed to field a good team.

I was actually in Belgium that weekend and I considered going as it was about a 4 hour drive. In the end I decided to watch on MXGP-TV and I was pretty happy with my decision. I highly doubt we'll see another one
