Include me in that class. It'll be called the "people who can lead laps but can't win" class.

I think Am's die because once they realize they aren't competing for a "prize winning" spot, they give up.

Not me. I payed $25, you bet your ass I'm showing up to all of them.

If you pay the $25 to win a prize, then you should just go to Ride365 and just buy the t-shirt you're competing for. If you're racing for the prizes, you're wasting your time.

You are paying the $25 so the organizers feel motivated to continue putting in the countless hours to provide racing for everyone.

The lack of support I had in protests is why I haven't raced. I love racing the series but I get punted all the time. Yes I ride the 125 but that shouldn't make me a punching bag. Once all my protests got ignored I just took a break. I'm not one to complain. I think what rF does is awesome. That's why I took a break instead of bashing other riders and my protests not getting handled the way I thought they should.

And the community has been crazy with the insults. Because I am an amateur, I'm obviously an idiot, retarded, mentally incapable, etc. it's not even fun playing with have these people anymore.

What lack of support in protests? The only way a protest will not be posted or 'ignored' is if a user does not provide a demo.

I protested 2 rounds in a row, multiple people and never heard anything back. They had demos and descriptions. But I may have messed them up? But after submitting 4 I'd at least like a hey, your protests aren't valid because....and then I'd fix it.

Ddavis for one you're one of the pros that loves to create drama here. All you do is bitch 24/7. I honestly see way more pros complaining than ams. We all have to pay so ams and pros should be treated the same regardless.

I believe Chex thinks about the ams showup here , why not make it an open ams if anything. Pros also die out as it happens every season, sx, and mx!

Just because we're ams doesn't mean to treat us any different. Like I said go through the forums ddavis and tally up the pros bitching over ams.

Found out how to pull up resolved protests.. I remember looking at this one.

You have submitted one protest this year. There was no time given for said incident (happens way too often). You did however write in the TIME field that the incident happened on lap one. The protested riders first two laps were watched, no incident occurred with said rider.

Nothing to you specifically, but to people submitting protests in general as this has been going on for quite some time. If you want to submit a protest that is fine and it is encouraged to do so. However, at least take the time to fill out all of the fields properly and provide a demo. If it is not worth your time, why should it be worth others?
