Very cool, makes my fat ass want to get out and do at least 10 miles on a road bike....baby steps. Congrates to these guys, I grew up watching them rip Millville, even wore Mickeys old boots for a few years that he gave me as a kid. that is a HUGE accomplishment

One of those 1 hour penalties was because we needed to load up the rider and transport him over a certain construction zone on the course... we were very busy during the group meeting before the race and our crew chiefs didn't catch the update. Only place on the trip for something like that.

I did 1500 miles in the chase vehicle doing most of the "direct follow" that had to be done 7pm to 7am and saw first hand the massive effort put in by the champs. These four guys earned my respect every mile and I will never forget what I saw.
The effort still needs us to buy shirts and souvenirs to break even on the whole trip. Please buy something so that R2R has more ability to help injured riders in the future.

Just like Graham Barber said, it like Bradshaw 1992 all over again.

Performing under pressure... Red plate... I knew that the points lead would be the time to see how Tomac deals with it. Some racers love the spotlight, and some perform great all the time with pressure and expectations on them. McGrath, and many more ... more »

The 1989 national when RJ got hurt drew just under 7,000 spectators. If the numbers are not that great for spectators it won't make Luongo happy.

Thanks Shane! Your dad liked 500s too. I met him when we both rode the 500 amateurs in late 1986.

The Dunge shouldn't be "taking a knee" to chat with Chad. He has always been too nice, but then maybe he is just right and the sport has gone downhill. Lots of egos out there to deal with. Chad has a lot of ego...

I raced an '89, '90 and '91 back then... The stock suspension was very good, and Factory Connection had that stuff dialed back then. Call them up to see if they can help you. Those bikes were top notch for handling and suspension back then. I also raced ... more »

I took 9 years off from 2003 to 2012. Watching supercoss and motocross on TV those years didnt help me to be a better rider, quite the opposite. I have whisky throttle now not throttle control. Also, the lines at every track are different now that 4 ... more »

Craig made a deliberate payback/takeout of Alex Martin. It's getting way out of hand out there.

Alex, if you are reading this: please lay low and focus on the outdoors! Why did it take Greg Albertyn until 1999 to win an outdoor title?? He kept getting hurt racing SX and started the outdoor series hurting. Indoor 250 titles don't mean much...
If you show up 105% ready for the nationals you could win it.

125 outdoor motocross... An affordable way for a privateer to go racing and show his talent. All you needed was a revalve, porting and a pipe to be pretty competitive.
There needs to be this class again!!!!!!!
