And I noted they had Marty Smith and Bob Hannah coming up.

That is so terribly sad news.

And UFO's.

True Pops ?
What wondeful memories!
I was just reading an article on MXLArge where it was stated that when Marty visited Japan
they'd not only roll out te red carpet but Mr Honda himslef would travel to the airport to greet him !

Now theyre wont be too many pro riders even from Vale or Doohan (Honda), Giacommo or King Kenny even at Yamaha, down that would have been able to say that !
Maybe Stefan Everts!
Def Cairoli at Mattinghoffen tho !

May Marty and his wife Nancy R.I.P.

Seems like SX is on but no spectators lots of rounds in a short period, some rounds with only few days in between, at the same track could be boring or exciting

Fwiw, Gaethje & Ferguson didn't let the lack of a crowd diminish their efforts to bludgeon one another

??? Who's G & F


All 7 races in Salt Lake City....all set up for ET3 !
apparently Kroc94 hasn't raced there since 2013 and didn't finish the race anyway.

Bonus is HL is running West 250 now !
Wonder how the US SX rookie will go lining up against his more experienced Bro ?

Not many sports have the crowd as close to the competitors as those animals and they still put on a hell of a show without their fans in the house.

Not a fan popes?

I can understand why some people can't stomach it, but it's come a fair way from the early days.
Like any sport, I try to ignore all the hype and just enjoy the technical and strategic aspect of it.

Being the most primitive form of human competition appeals to my simple mind
