2018 MX Discussion

I've heard conversation coming out of animal pens that is more intelligent than what is going on in here.

Think that 250 list looks pretty solid, I think those top 3 picks will be hot this year. Really hoping for some good racing this season, a bunch of battling and few injuries :)

Excited to see how Masterpool does making his pro debut in the 450 class. Also looking forward to seeing how Lopes, Marchbanks and Jordan Bailey do.

Hangtown used to be such a cool track with off cambers but now its more SX than MX. There were like 3 wall jumps?

Agreed, Hangtown's boring nowadays imo, just weird sections pieced together.

Indeed no flow at all. And what's up with that overly done roughness? It's been proven more than once that a bit smoother tracks provide a lot of better racing. This is just a press day and it looks like it had an entire day of racing...

I left 10 minutes before the last 450 moto ended assuming Anderson held on, called my dad and told him I was on my way home and told him I left before the end of the 450 moto and the first thing he says is "Did you know Tomac caught Anderson?"

I know this is older with Glen Helen already over, but does anyone know when the last time that both defending champions went 1-1 at the opening round like Tomac and Osborne did at Hangtown?
