2018 MX Discussion

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

What about Barcia causing a big pileup in Moto 1 by riding backwards on the track?

Thanks Puma. I don't know what the rule is on open face helmets, but as long as it's a PBR helmet I think we'll recognize Ron. He may eat ass, but I hope he doesn't eat shit. Travis can't afford another dinger either. Go Sipes! RJ may be a better chance at this point! These guys kick ass raising money for the cause. Kinda ironic Ronnie said "not Obama that's fer sure" cuz Trump ain't doin' shit for PR. Sad!

Yeah but like 95% of Ronnies fan base is a Trump supporter so can't be doing that lol.

Why Sipes? Surely there is another meme rider out there?

Get fucking Bubba in there and you could raise some serious bank for PR. And that would be an epic fuck you to Monster from Red Bull. (It's Bubba is still Red Bull)

Maybe I’m wrong but the initial announcement made it sound like it was to raise money for the PR motocross community, not PR relief efforts. It helps either way which is awesome.


Would rather see a serious team go, and have these guys as more of a side show celebrity guest apparence. Maybe have like an end of Saturday race with TP, the Mac, Sipes, RV, RC, Reed, etc on 2-strokes. They are going to get very little, if any, actual coverage during the actual racing anyway. No offense to Jimmy, but he hardly qualifys as capable to race the event as himself, let alone Ronnie Mac.

Instead of them just making a show out of an otherwise seriously prestigous event, would make more sense to be the entertainment when the racing is not going. Its the LL of worldwide pro motocross.

Ronnie is starting to get over played and over used. It was that joke that originally was hilarious and refreshing in the world of corporate serious moto, but now that they realized it was funny and can profit, it gets repetitive.

Would you buy merch or have the same reaction if it were just a sideshow?

To clarify - I had about ten people share the announcement post on Facebook in 30 minutes. If Pastrana, Sipes, and Mac were just getting together to turn a few laps, it would just be another Nitro Circus clip and I wouldn't be influenced to put money toward it.

Travis knows how strong his earning power is, but you could see his embarrassment when saying which website to go to lol. #whitepowerstrong

I'm personally not a fan of the Ronnie Mac thing, but Sipes and Pastrana is cool. Instead of sending Albertson as Ronnie Mac, they should just put Canard out there. That team would be as American as it gets with TC41, TP199, and Sipes.

How are you guys forgetting Gared Steinke? This guy is riding a 2 stroke for the people at every round, and y'all kicking him to the curb. Sad.

Ronnie Mac is stupid. Pastrana is cool, Sipes is cool, Mxon is cool. Ronnie Mac is just someone who high school kids think is funny and who old dudes like Havoc think they were in the 40s.

Huh? Man, you've been really off your game Matt. Go back and work on your material. Honestly. I want to give you some credit, but it's been lacking.

Pretty sure you can run anything as long as it is the correct cc's for each class. Flashback to aprilias v twin engines,
