The August issue of Transworld Motocross contains a very enlightening article. They posed 48 questions to 48 Pro Motocross Racers with the assurance that their anonymity was guaranteed. What followed was an eye opening set of questions and answers.
To make it a bit more fun, after giving the results of each question in percentage format, they included a quote from one of the interview subjects.
A few of the questions that fans of this site would be interested in include;
Should 250cc two-strokes be allowed in the Lites Class?
Yes – 62%
“Why not? It will make the die-hard two-stroke fans happy, and it will be more affordable for the privateers. I don’t think any of the top-level guys would race a two-stroke instead, though.”
Are four-strokes good or bad for the sport?
Good – 52%
Bad – 42%
No Opinion – 6%
“in this economy they are definitely bad. Who can afford to get into motocross when it costs nearly as much as the bike did to repair a blown engine?”
