So fuck RC, Bradshaw, Reed, and anyone else who did anything from the 70s-2011?
Please tell me you're not that idiot. I speak about the SX excuses, "we do more sx so we arent good anymore at mxon" blablabla
Except the training did shift from MX to SX because of money. There's a reason Reed only rides SX, and it ain't just fitness. SX is worth so much more than MX in the US and that's apparent. Basically, the teams train for SX from September - May then take a break to ride MX from May - August. SX is "more important" in the US.
Adam Cianciarulo is a prime example. He rode some of 2017 and all of 2018 Supercross injured instead of getting his ACL repaired and missing it. He could've easily flipped and had his ACL repaired after MX in 2017, then be healthy for MX in 2018.
It also doesn't help that outdoor tracks aren't what they used to be. They're all big, style jumps "for the fans." To me, Southwick is the best race of the year because it shows how much a rider really wants it.
