Thunder Valley Outdoor MX out for 2012?


I've seen a bunch of rumors that TV outdoor national is being replaced by a round in the southeastern US. AMA won't add a national date.

Tell them to add a date and not take ours..!!!!!!!!

Where have you seen this?

Man, that would absolutely suck!! :busted:

I just did some on-line searching, but could only find a bunch of sites stating the AMA has yet to announce its 2012 schedule. I don't know about you, but I love taking my boys to that race -- PLUS, it's nice to see the pros having to deal with the same jetting issues all of us who ride at this altitude deal with. :busted:

Check a bunch of nob mx forum sites now the hot tip is Steel City or High Point, one of the PA races. Just don't want it to be Colorado's race, how bout you?

What are the issues at Pala? I remember in year one it was total gridlock for the fans as far as getting to the track, but I didn't hear that about last year's race and don't know if the AMA got involved in that or not.

Issue seems to be with management at Pala. Just my guess it could be same issue as Glen Helen, they want a long term contract for a date, like 10 years and AMA-mxsports isn't going that route.

I am glad they are moving us up earlier in the year, not too hot!

I agree that not as hot as late June would be good.

In any event, in part, the link below says:

"The 2012 race schedule for the Lucas Oil AMA Pro Motocross Championship will be released in the coming months and will feature a 12 race season at the nation's premier tracks."

The MXA site made it sound like its only the season ending location(s) that are not nailed down, so maybe the 6/2/2012 date is good for us. Time will tell.

So where is that mystery venue in California for the last race, any guess?

Rumer has it at Lake Elsenor:ride::lol::ride:

Yep...I believe RacerX tweeted that it could be Elsinor.

Wow! That looks sick.

I wish we had tracks here with white rail fences, trees, grass. :-)

      Has anybody done the Holy Cross Trail on a dirtbike?  This is just outside of Minturn, north of Leadville and south of Vail.  I've run this several times in my Jeep (probably my favorite trail) all the way past Holy Cross City to Cleveland Rock, but wondering how it would be on a bike.  I'm guessing it would be easier.
      I'll likely plan to find out this summer, but would appreciate any input.

      Three of us decided to get the heck out of the Midwest weather as we are suffering a bad case of the wife is driving us crazy right along with the cabin fever.  A couple of us have been to MOAB once before but we're only three and we like a bit larger group when the riders are fairly well matched.  However, and this may show what I DON'Y know about MOAB, the one day of riding I was able to do out there last year before having to head home for a family burial, it seems to me that the skill level required for most of MOAB is fairly dialed down compared to Taylor Park so matching up skill level as a group seems less an issue.  Now don't skin me alive if I am wrong, I already said I don't really know the area yet.  So anyway, if anyone is interested in joining us on the trail, we'd like to know about it!

      Weather should be awesome, thinking of taking the day off to go ride rampart or something else close Friday. I'm not one to go riding by myself so if anyone is thinking about it let me know! My usual riding buddy has plans.

      Spring is almost here and I was wondering if anyone has been by pipestone... How is the snow looking?? MTDOT pass web cam is down so I could not get a visual on the snowpack. is the lower area still a bit wet or is it starting to dry up a bit. Looks like we have some really good weather this week. I think I am going to head there this saturday to check it out but if anyone has any updates post them here.
      Also, last year was my first year there and we only hit it in the late fall. We really liked the area and were able to go 4 or 5 times. If you are a regular shout out and lets go riding.... I plan on spending a lot of time there this year.
