I agree 100%, how about the long term affects of being exposed to this on a respiratory level. I work around chemicals every day and the long term affect is present. Feld knows they crewed up and simply are trying to make it look like its not a issue. These riders, tracks workers, ktm challenge kids and other personnel need to lawyer up. They have legal rights and are entitled to compensation, bikes fixed etc. 5k is a slap in the face if you ask me. Considering Feld is probably the biggest, richest promoter around.

Feld met with the riders before Minneapolis, they agreed to look at each guys needs on a case by case basis. 

Seems they're making a genuine attempt to do something, everyone needs to kick back and let it happen, the race was only a week ago.

Respiratory issues shouldn't be an issue, as there definitely wasn't any dust to breathe in!!  The lime was in the standing water, unless riders breathed in the actual water, or ingested it, it didn't get into their lungs.

It wasn't a deliberate attempt to hurt people, it was a horrible mistake, and they seem to be addressing it.

agreed. wait and see how they actually handle it first before rushing to judgement. besides...once lawyers get involved you can bet your ass this sport will be changing. you don't like ticket prices now? just wait... :lol:

now, if Feld doesn't do the right thing then hang'em! :x :lol:
