If your were a Pro and you only had to race one championship series every season were you brought home the number plate for your team which one would you choose supercross or motocross? If I could do something like that I would stick to motocross.

NEPG. Not the huge money maker like MX/SX but the variety of riding would keep it fresh and fun (at least i would assume). Also im sure the money couldn't be that bad.

Outdoors. Supercross just fills the void until outdoors imo

I'd go MXGP over The Outdoor Nationals though just because I love to travel outside the US.

Definitely supercross we all can go out and ride a national track you don 't get to many chance's to ride a supercross track plus it would be so much fun

I could rant all day about that, but I'll condense it.

Motocross is, by definition, an outdoor sport that's (usually) run over natural terrain. Culturally, it's akin to road-racing for cars and bikes -- the circuits are usually in less-populated areas, and viewers can't see the entire circuit -- and it takes a relatively sophisticated fan to understand why it needs to be that way. It's not about sitting up in some bowl.

Supercross was never intended to be an extension of any of that. Instead, it panders to the unsophisticated fan. From Day One it's been a gimmick to move some semblance of the sport into urban areas where casual fans can "sit up high and see the whole track" while enjoying the comforts and amenities of an MLB/NFL facility. Never mind the Mickey Mouse circuits. Supercross fans just don't know the difference.

If they came up with a pitch-and-putt version of golf staged in stadiums (oh, and televised in prime time, let's not forget that), there'd be "Supergolf" suckers who think it's better than the Master's.

The best series on earth is MXGP.

Mx for me , I love the different types of tracks and conditions.
Supercross just seems like the same track each week , excluding Daytona.
But as a pro for a living ..............it's all about the money

Well lets see....... How many riders were able to secure a factory ride for a MX Nationals only contract? Answer 0. No brainer, SX it is.

A factory rider in MXGP IMO has the best job in the world.

You get to visit new countries

Meet lots of different people

Race (the majority) of best riders

Ride more types of terrain

Get a proper off season

Potential to be a world champion

SX is fun, and its nice to have it during a period where we dont have much racing in genral to follow. But like Brownstone already said. It a diff sport marketed on getting the casual fans in a convenient seat. That's not what the sport is about for most of us.Unique tracks using the best natural terrain will always out trump an samey SX stadium IMO.
