Cardo Systems, maker of secure, reliable communication for race teams, will offer radio systems to try free of charge for all racers at this weekend's Monster Energy Cup. While radio communication with riders is not legal in regular-season AMA supercross events, it is legal for this weekend's race. Cardo Systems will set up a booth right next to the AMA tech inspection semi offering up radios for any racer that wants to use one. There's no charge to any rider for radio use this weekend at Monster Energy Cup.
The radio communication from crew to rider could prove especially valuable at the Monster Energy Cup, a race famous for use of the Joker Lane, and even more famous for Ryan Dungey and Ryan Villopoto's famous gaffes forgetting to go through the lane several years ago. For this weekend, Cardo systems is telling riders to avoid the million dollar mistake and take advantage of communication with the race crews. In addition, a radio system allows a team to alert riders to yellow and red flag situations on the track, as well as other in-race strategies.
A few riders, trainers and teams have used Cardo Systems communication during practice sessions during the week. Key features of the Packtalk Bold system include:
