The Red Bull Straight Rhythm race is a marketing gimmick, but there is something interesting about eliminating everything that makes motocross what it is and removing the corners from a Supercross track—just leaving the jumps and whoops. In person it is frustrating to watch because you can’t see the start or the first half of the track—and by the time the riders come into view there isn’t much racing left. This is made-for-TV event that just uses paying spectators as background extras.

The 2018 Salt lake City Supercross is round 16 of the 17-race 2018 AMA Supercross series. It is really the last chance for the 250 West guys, those that are still racing, to track down Aaron Plessinger or for Marvin Musquin to close the gap on 450 leader Jason Anderson. Why is it the last chance? Because if they don’t make a dent in these two points leader’s advantages, they will have an almost impossible, if not zero mathematical, chance of stopping the inevitable when they get to the last round in Las Vegas. The 2018 Salt Lake City Supercross track is just another unimaginative rhythm and whoop layout that has the riders spending almost no time with the wheels on the ground (which is where motorcycle racers actually race). There is lots of air time and more than enough banked hairpins to ram people in, but the only part of the track that looks like what the sport is about is on the short start straight.

Foxborough is a cookie cutter design that is all air time. If it wasn't for the starting line, the riders would hardly spend any time at all with their wheels on the ground The post 2018 FOXBOROUGH SUPERCROSS: TAKE A LAP OF WHOOP & RHYTHM COUNTRY appeared first on Motocross Action Magazine.
