The AMA/FIM is ruining it for the spectators and riders during these trying times. What a ridiculous decision to rob these riders [Ken Roczen, Jason Anderson, Vince Friese, Martin Davalos] of their points for jumping on the cross flag when it would have been terribly hard to see coming out of that corner. I will not watch supercross anymore this season unless they reverse their decision!

Albert, we feel your frustration, but the officials will tell you that their first priority is safety. And earlier in the evening, both an official and a photographer were hit by out-of-control motorcycles that flew off the track. That might have made them extra sensitive to any infractions that involved downed riders, including Chase Sexton, who caused the wheels-on-the-ground flag in the first place. And don’t deny yourself a chance to see a good series over a call you disagree with. That’s cutting off your nose to spite your face. Roczen himself posted his frustration with the call, then moved on to the next round. DC
