Man losing two riders in socal both at tracks so close together is rough.  My condolences to the family and friend of those riders

It's actually worse than that, we also lost a moto brother up @ Gorman track about 3 weeks ago:(
Be safe everyone.
And RIP to our mx family.



I ride a couple days a week at Gormon and didn't hear about a accident there.

Anyone know where it happen on the track and what happen to the guy?

Sucks to hear about these fellow moto brothers. :(

I'm up here all the time also.....
From what I heard second hand is that he OJ'd the tower jump pretty far and then whisky throttled over that next table. That left him no room and was launched over that berm wall, and they found him inverted in the wire fencing :( Just awful.
That's kinda what this vital thread says also, and talks about our moto brotha a little. Tuff to hear this stuff.

ryno looks like he just crawled out of a cave in the mountains

doesn't look like he's in any shape to ride either
I think he lives in a van, down by the river.

WHAT DID HUGHES 'UNLOCK HIS JAW' ABOUT?
Anyone have the link to the video. basically saying that riders need training and it wouldnt have happened if people would be trained properly on how to ride motorcycles.

I was kind of wondering that myself...maybe he just had someone rocking the truck back and forth to make it look like he was in control while driving.
What I am really curious about though is who chewed his butt out after he got hurt at any time...this was more a pitch for his training school to take off. EVERYBODY has a time in their riding where they are a beginner , what is he saying...that nobody should ever get on a track until they are practically a Pro!

Well, there's always something good to find out of a bad situation.  None of these deaths will be motocross related and cause our tracks to close due to increased insurance premiums.

They undoubtedly will all be counted as Covid deaths...

Seems like Hughes thinks no one is worthy to ride or race unless he says so not everyone lived Hughes privileged life of racing most vets have to work before they can ride Fuk this privileged Jack Wagon
