Stu Preston of Jacks Cycles was supposed to have brought a petition to the Worlds for that purpose. Never did see it though.

Its probably like the slow play issue in golf. They claim slow play is a big issue, but in reality I have no problem watching a pro take his time before he makes a great shot. Slow play in golf is only a problem at the amatuer level when it takes me 5 and half hours to play eighteen holes because the group in front of me is not playing ready golf, is on the phone, or can't hit the ball 200 yards if they flushed it, but when 230 yards away on a par 5 they wait until the green is clear before they play their second shot on the 1% chance they hit the shot of their life and actully get a 220 yard 3 wood to bounce on the green. Oh and almost always when they do that, they duff the next shot and it barely goes 50 yards.

The FIM is probably overeacting to a "perceived" problem, or up to something else trying to nerf the top guy, and hopefully they will go back to allowing balancing just to solve the scoring issue that the no stop rule has presented with the way it is being interpeted. I have no idea if the time riders spent balancing was excessive or a big deal in the last few years myself. But I would guess this is a total non issue for the vast majority of events and clubs outside of the very top level.

Now which rider rode the section correctly. Stole this from the rmta thread from last weekends event. Myself watching riders struggle is not a sport.

Says the guy that changed section 4 on Saturdays local event so that the experts drug their bikes through the exit and yet the SX had the same line.

Nothing like riding a tough section and then knowing that you get to drag your bike through the exit for a nice 3.

I really don't think that no-stop is going to fly. Too much controversy and impossible to score fairly. We may as well go to olympic type judging and score on style while we are at it. The system wasn't broke. Give the riders a time limit (they did) and adjust it and the sections to keep things moving. I damn well know what a stop is, but have a hard time defining a "pause". Is it no-stop or not? A pause is a stop.


pause

/pôz/


Noun

A temporary stop in action or speech.



Verb


Interrupt action or speech briefly.



Synonyms

noun.

break - intermission - rest - stop - interval


verb.

stop - halt

Come on out...You'll have a blast. There's even a stadium section.

Thanks for the congrats, I start on the 24th and I am psyched

On the website it states "proper" motorcycle boots and helmets required.

Can I get by with the high top steel toe boots I ride in, even though they are not motorcycle boots by definition??

I would hate to drive all the way down there to find out I don't have enough gear yet to ride.

Those boots will work just fine. I'll ask the TM tonight and if I don't post you'll be gtg.

Thanks for checking for me, being unemployed for the last 5 months means I have to wait on a few things I would like until fall and I have had a chance to build my reserve back up from the beating it has been taking
