With a week off for the GPs before their visit to Glen Helen, we hear that there were inquiries made about the possibility of an age exemption for German teen Ken Roczen to sign up at Hangtown. Unfortunately, as much as they'd love to have him there, he didn't get a pass for a rules exemption. Of course, neither did Pastrana, or Carmichael, or anyone else back in the day, and maintaining that championship integrity is probably a good idea.

But who knows? Is there still be a chance we'll see Teka Rockstar Suzuki's Clement Desalle at the Lucas Oil AMA Pro Motocross Championship season-opener? His one-race appearance in the 450 class last year at Washougal on a Dirt Lab Honda was impressive. What could he do on a factory Teka Rockstar Suzuki machine? (Obviously it'd have to be modified to work with the U.S. rules...or would it be a Rockstar Makita Suzuki? They could definitely use some healthy bodies under their tent.)
