I am a 60-year-old moto head who first fell in love with motocross around 1973. I still remember buying my first issue of Motocross Action magazine with Tim Hart on the cover at the Astrodome. I love supercross and have attended many over the years. But true outdoor motocross is king! This year’s High Point National was the greatest. Hardcore, rough and tough real motocross at its best. To ever reduce Pro Motocross series for more supercross would be a terrible mistake in my humble opinion.

Barry, thanks for the note, and High Point ’21 was amazing. And the good news is that the nationals won’t be shrinking anytime soon—last year was just a weird one due to the pandemic. Motocross is full steam ahead now. DC
