Disallowing a racer from competing in a class he can legally participate in though is just wrong.
Yup,Ryan V's dad told us on a dualsport ride in nor cal that 2 hours was about the limit for a hard ridden 250 in pro level Supercross,the cases can crack,the crank is shot,the whole engine comes apart and a new one is slotted in. Fine for a Pro-Circuit bike or other top contender.
How does a mid packer pay for that stuff? It's damn pricey to build a fast 250 these days.

The "pointing out" thing is an AMA creation,the 250 class is more competitive if anything then the 450 class.



(I hope Dungey wins this weekend,I just like seeing orange on the top of the Podium) I do feel Davy M deserves a title though.
