I hate to say it, but it wouldn't bother me one bit if they scrapped this whole crappy series for the year and started over in '10

"Additionally, AMA Pro Road Racing also placed riders Michael Beck, Kevin Boisvert, Mat Mladin, Mark Simon and Dustin O'Hara on probation due to failure to participate in Sunday's mandatory autograph session."

Thats it, the last straw. Ive had it with the AMA. I realize the DMG doesnt care, but they've lost one fan tonight.

Why are we posting when we could be Riding?

My god, what the hell is going on here. i tried to email AMA pro racing and it seems they do not actually care what guys think, cause i kept getting a error form when I tried to send the message. Their mailbox is no doubt full.

Everybody is so pissed with these guys at this point that there is nothing they can do right in the eyes of the fans. They probably would honestly be better off scrapping the whole thing and starting with a new "image" next year.

They're trying so hard to bring conformity to the one group of people in the whole world who despise it most..... motorcyclists. Am I the only person who sees this?

They want it to be like nascar and using different bikes won't ever let the happen. If they keep it they will regulate the bikes to the so it is all rider and the badging will be just that. I figure the manufactures would like it if they can't win a race. They blame it on the rider no the bike.

Used to nascar was like the AMA mod out a factory car and drive it. When Ford, Chevy, or Dodge got behind technology they would make to rules to hinder the fast guy. Chevy got hemi heads booted because they didn't want to spend the money to research it because Ford and Dodge had it and were kicking ass. Overhead cams were banned because of the ford 428?. Spoiler were axes becasue of the Dodge Daytona. You get the pic. With enough rules everbody ends up drive the same uniform vehicle.

I can see why they are upset with the drivers not showing up for the crowd. DMG already has a public relations crisis on their hands.

I got this from cyclenews.com
What transpired initially in the press room were some verbal jabs between Hacking and third-place finisher Jason DiSalvo, the pair having a history of run-ins - though none has ever resulted in any discipline by the AMA. The transcript of the press conference in which the two went at it follows, beginning with DiSalvo talking about his race to third. He then takes exception to Hacking and race winner Danny Eslick having a conversation between themselves as he did so. It's worth noting, however, that this is often the case during a press conference: The two riders not being interviewed at the time often converse while the racer answering the question has the microphone.

DiSalvo: "...I had three laps to go. Hey, I'm doing a little interview over here [laughter from those in the media center]. By the time I got to the back of those guys, there were three laps to go and I had three guys in front of me...I had three laps to go. Hey, I'm doing a little interview over here [more laughter...]. By the time I got to the back of those guys, there were three laps to go and I had three guys in front of me so I said, ‘three laps, three guys, I gotta get one guy each lap.' Hey, did I talk during your thing? Did I? Answer my question."


Moderator: "Alright guys..."

Hacking: "Do you have a microphone? They can hear you."

Moderator: "Let's finish up here and be respectful...let's finish up these interviews."

DiSalvo: "Let's show a little respect here."

Hacking: "I lost all respect for you a long time ago."

DiSalvo: "I never had any for you."

Moderator: "We're not going to get into it here. Let Jason finish his interview and then we'll have questions. Thank you."

DiSalvo: "You got me all fired up here."

That's where it ended, though the AMA says that Hacking didn't stop there, though this reporter had his tape recorder off by that point and was back to his computer. It was at that point that the AMA claims Hacking used his "string of profane language while exiting the press interview area."
