Supercross Imagine if one of the 2016 supercross rounds had a track like this

Recommended Posts

I wonder if they ever get above 3rd gear after the start.  Parts of it look like an endurocross.

Not quite endurocross lol

 

It would be cool on the Vintage night they hold every year if they did a vintage track as well with it

track was cool. todays tracks are too "smooth". lol

Agree.  Don't think they had what you would call a rhythm section and most of the jumps had flat landings.

Looks like by the end of the video they were getring theu it all better. Back in the day i think the tracks were difficult enough that it took most of the night for the guys to figure out the fast way. Makes todays tracks look even more cookie-cutter.

The older tracks would make the racing more interesting, but the new tracks seem to be far more thought out.  Did anyone notice that guys that won their heat in the video had to ALSO race the semi?  I don't get that.

The old tracks of that era were cool but like already stated above the bikes & suspension have improved so much that most pros of today would make an easy session out of it plus Monster would never approve a track design where the jumps do not send the riders into the rafters for maximum airtime.  Everyone knows that it's all about big air and fireworks in SX lol.

I got in to the sport in 1984 and watched several races that year. It is amazing to see the changes in the sport. Those tracks completely suck when we look back at them today. Ugh.

I dont care what any of you say, most of those tracks are tougher than todays tracks. There was no rhythm to them and they just sucked. And if you cased the dubs or triples back then, for get about it, you weren't riding it out.
