    Any major changes over the '18...? or just "Bold New Graphics" and a 2019 #VIN plate on the chassis headstock (pictured)...?

    Is that K-Roc's new ride...?

    RWE is the Honda version of KTM's factory edition. Comes with a Yosh exhaust, some head work, basically a production version of Showa "a-kit" suspension with some more advanced coatings and what not.

    There's noise about Feld as the promoter as well, nothing confirmed, but there is a Supercross event scheduled for 9-15 in Montreal that Gestev is promoting, Dirt Wurx is building the track & a number of U S riders have committed. We might be seeing some structural changes in Supercross over the next 12-18 months.

    Beats the shit out of me as to what it all means, but I hope they tame the tracks down, too many riders getting hurt far too often.

    With AX gone now, I wonder where those teams and riders will do. Not enough gates in SX for even a few of the top guys.

    I believe there may be a move to amateur racing on the pro SX tracks the day after the pro race. I believe they raced in Atlanta last year on Sunday and they also race Daytona on Sunday. this would make a lot of sense for the promoter revenue wise assuming the money numbers support that theory.

    They will be adding more amateur supercross races. Someone will pick up an arenacross series at some point. Just a matter of when and who promotes it.

    well I think the whole point is why bother with AX let those who want run to the SX tracks the day after the pro's do.

    There are still two really good regional arenacross series, but the promoters don’t want to pay the asking price for the AMA sanction for a “championship.” So there are still options for guys to race indoors at a high level without having to jump into full-on supercross.

    They did following Atlanta, it's a money grab by the promoter. There's hundreds of racers attending the SX anyway, great opportunity to shake down the racer families for more $$.

    Mookies deal is only off season, he will do the European races but is not signed for the SX season. Weird deal.....

    You might have seen Malcolm Stewart riding with the Smartop/MotoConcepts Honda crew out there in the social media world. We wondered about it also, so we made a few phone calls, talked to some people, and got the scoop on the deal.

    As of right now, there’s no deal in place with the team and Stewart to race 2019 Monster Energy Supercross, but MCR has committed to helping Stewart out with bikes, parts, and a mechanic for Malcolm’s many off-season races, starting next weekend in Montreal.

    The hope is that Stewart’s camp or the MCR camp can raise enough funds to go racing alongside Justin Brayton and Vince Friese while they're both working together.

    The report from the test track is positive, and Stewart feels at home on the Honda and with the teams suspension/engine package.

    Stay tuned for more info as we get it.
