Rockstar/Makita Suzuki’s Ryan Dungey catches a fair amount of flack from fans and message-board types, and media for that matter, for not letting others “in”. What’s he really thinking? A lot of his answers in interviews tend to sound rather “canned” and it’s hard to figure out what’s going on inside his head sometimes.

Anyone who has been to the sand tracks in Europe – like Lierop (no longer on the GP schedule), Lommel, etc. – will notice big, key differences in the “sand tracks” there versus the one and only sand track here on the AMA schedule – Southwick.
First, the European tracks are very technical. The sand tends to hold water really well, and the tracks are slow-speed, rutted, gnarly affairs where line choice is the biggest key of all.
Southwick, on the other hand, is normally much more high-speed, and line choice is never as big of an issue, as there are normally one or two good lines in any turn, and a few more on any straightaway.

Around the blogosphere, a lot is being made of a supposed controversy surrounding the 2011 French Motocross of Nations team. Being that the race is being held in France this year, perhaps this is fueling the supposed controversy.
The team, announced at Loket, is slated to consist of Steven Frossard (MX1), Marvin Musquin (MX2) and Gautier Paulin (MX3). Even prior to this past weekend’s British GP, some people felt that former MX2 World Champ Chris Pourcel should’ve been on the team in the MX3 spot, considering that Paulin is an MX2 racer full-time.
