another flatland track.....

 

 

It's better than that shit track we gave them last year and it's not totally flat

 I think the track is perfect for the Euro riders. It's laid out like a GP track

That track looks really fun.  One of the reasons I got out of riding (aside from three kids with their activities, a wife that hated it, etc.) was that the tracks in So Cal have all gotten so jumpy, and there was usually one or two big jumps that I didn't want to do on most of the main tracks as I've gotten older and slower.  🤣  I felt like I was getting in people's way at times and didn't want to get landed on. 

That track looks really smooth and fun.  I'd probably still be riding if there was a track like that around me.

That's not saying much....most of the GP tracks suck.  Motocross is supposed to have hills, off cambers, etc. Building one in the middle of a cornfield is boring....most of todays tracks are easy Supercross tracks...

Maybe.....maybe not. They do race in Indonesia, Thailand and Mexico after all. Depends how many of the U.S. racers that train in Florida show up to race. My guess, not many because they have a "nothing in it for me" attitude.

I wasn't the one saying they were easy.

I didn't say they were easy. I stated that they look like "easy" supercross tracks.....big difference. Basically they are boring. The GP tracks have change thru the years to the point that most of the turns resemble highway curves that don't force riders to slow down.....didn't used to be that way...   Tracks nowdays are built on flat ground so that the maintainence is easier and visibility is better for the fans and take up less space..... If you ever go to the states check out Mammoth Mountain.....

I've never seen that track, but it looks really fun. I would love to ride it. Of course for the GP they will make the jumps and whoops a little bigger.
