I'm thinking about going.

I ripped a start from Egypt and I was happy about that.

Flip a coin and if you're tempted to flip it again to go 2 out of 3 just book your flight.

Already walked the track.

The only Canadian races I'm not attending this year are Regina and Moncton.

Psssst...you might have a reason...or two...to go to the GP at WWMX in Florida.

Goerke and Tremblay plan on being there? Facciotti & Wright? Combination of those riders?

That would be awesome.

How's the track looking? Calling for a sunny day with a high of 74F. So again not too hot this year.

Is the Pleasant Valley track as much of a shit-hole as it looks?

I could be wrong, never been there, but it looks small, tight, rocky and super slick. Just can't see a lot of people enjoying it.

I seen it last year. It's good. Long enough. Just a bit narrow, with some s turns. The narrow stuff and s turns no good for national pros, but rest I liked. Some jumps were questionably small too. Lots to like otherwise.

The track isn't all that bad to be honest. The soil is pretty good and there is a couple of slick spots that form in some areas after they water that hide underneath the dirt so it can get tricky in some spots. It's a fast track and like loftyair mentioned some of the jumps last year were fairly small so hopefully they'll have improved on that. Personally it's not my favorite track in the series. I've never been East so I've never rode the track but I do know that track selection is fairly limited out East.

The reason the added Pleasant Valley back to the schedule last year is so that the teams and privateers could spend 2 weeks in The Maritimes as oppose to driving all the way there just for Moncton and coming back to Quebec for Deschambault. It makes the trip worth while for everyone involved.

Could they keep Moncton and replace Pleasant Valley with a different track? That I could tell you. If someone from the Maritimes is on this board or is lurking around please chime in on this subject. Are there other nice tracks that could be National caliber with some improvements or are the two best tracks the ones currently on the National schedule?

This is something that I would personally like to know. I could look it up and look at whatever pictures and videos come up but it's not the same as hearing from someone that rides there regularly.

Anyone know for sure if it starts at noon EST or in 20 minutes at 11am EST.

I saw both mentioned?
