Not sure about most ??? but just makes no sense when there is so much at play. There are competative Dakar racers that will not endulge enduro racing close to the event even though it is allied.

Brad's first ride after lock down was on a KTM mx bike . Thats also how Rossi broke his leg a few years ago.

Dovi has broken his collar bone in a mx training accident. Scheduled for surgery. Let's hope he is ready for the 1st race.

Such a pity, especially since the first race is only 2,5 weeks away.  I hope he can race.  Any missed races will be extra difficult to recover in a shortened season.

If you listen to Rossi, MM etc , most of them do MX to stay fit, that is the primary reason imo

Ja I know and obviously it is enjoyable and they do not have flat tracks on their doorstep. The reality is a 70kph off on an MX bike can be worse than 200kph on a track ... or 10kph on a MBX. But yes they will do what they want to unless their contract says otherwise.

Very very few don't. Even the Ducati boys do MX
Just because your past did not turn out like you wanted it to does not mean your marriage will not be better than you ever imagined it could be.

Is there any way one can live stream the GP for free? I am hesitant to upgrade my DSTV package as I now have to rely on my meagre monthly pension.

Now there is finally confirmation that Pol Espargo is going to ride for HRC, Alex Marquez has a two year deal to ride for LCR Honda from next season and Crutchlow is out of LCR.
