By the way, the beatings would continue. After an off weekend, the next race was a supercross in New Orleans on May 20th. Hannah won that. Then came another national at Lake Whitney, Texas on May 28th. And Hannah won that!
The 125s also raced five-straight in '78. Broc Glover won three of the races, and Mark Barnett won two.
There have been some other tough stretches for the sport, such as when supercross and motocross overlapped during the months of May and June, sending the teams scrambling between a motocross one weekend and a supercross the next. But that's another topic for another day....
So we've gone 33 years since the riders have had to endure five-straight motocross weekends, and chances are we'll probably never see a stretch like that again. The riders and teams who are off this weekend certainly hope so!
