Re: 2017 Monster Energy AMA Supercross

Saw they made a change to the format. Instead of a specified # of laps it will be like the outdoors. 20 min moto +1 lap.

I think it should be good. I know there was some dislike when the track set-up had VERY short lap times.

I think it will be a good change over all.

I am stoked. Lots of shuffle on who is on what bike. Will be cool to see the shake up! I am excited to see Canard on Orange!!

I like that change quite a bit. One of the reasons I stopped going were when lap times were getting into the low 40 second range and a main event was over in less than 15 minutes. Heck, the lites class was sometimes over in darn near 10 minutes sometimes.

Re: 2017 Monster Energy AMA Supercross

If I remember right the lites class is 15 min moto, and the 450 is 20 min moto

Should make for some good racing

Re: 2017 Monster Energy AMA Supercross

I liked it better way back in the old days of MX...before super cross and short attention spans changed it all. Seems like when it was 45 minute Motos, physical conditioning of man & equipment was a more prominent factor. As was racing strategy out on the track. Glad they went to 20+, sure wish it would run for at least a half hour. Also that might have the bonus effect of forcing factories to increase their stingy fuel capacity on all their thoroughbred caliber dirt bikes.

Okay, so what's your podium picks?

I'm going with Roczen, Dungey, and Webb for A1...

I'm for Dungey, but I don't think anyone beats Roczen except Roczen.

Roczen, Tomac, Dungey

So far the racing has been good. Watching the 450SX LCQ race.

Good call. After watching him last year, I was really expecting a lot better 450 class debut. I'm pretty sure Team Yamaha was as well...

Roczen's performance was very impressive, as expected.

Re: 2017 Monster Energy AMA Supercross

Kroc just did exactly what he did in the outdoors. Hole shot and put up a massive lead instantly...

If Dungey gets a good start I thi k he can run the pace and put some pressure on. But I think Dungey is the only one who can.

I was bored to tears, honestly. And I don't bore easily when it comes to motorcycle racing.
