Accidents like this make me wonder how dirt bike tracks stay in business....barb wire fences within 20 feet of a track, tractors in run off areas, deep holes where dirt was dug up for jumps...

If a roadrace course had obvious dangers in the run off as bad as these, it would be called out in an instance.

Yet another reason why I think riding the racetrack on a streetbike with safety gear is a relatively safe endeavor.

My buddy ran off the river track at 3 palms and landed on a concrete water drain and demolished in foot and ankle. There's now way to make a safe MX track anyways.

After just recently riding on a MX track a couple times it really does make road course riding feel like playing a round of golf. Sketchy.

yep, and arm pump is a on MX track in comparison to track riding IMO....combine arm pump with speed, fatigue, + a cased jump and you're flirting with some danger. Jumping doubles scared me 10 x's more than splitting trees by mere inches at roughly 20 mph.

Listening to some of the guys talk about "the way TWS (Texas World Speedway) used to be" I'd have to disagree.
