All of Team MotoConcepts Missing Indy

From Racer X - Unfortunately, Team MotoConcepts will not attend the Indianapolis Supercross this weekend due to Kyle Chisholm and Tommy Hahn injuries. We should be back racing with Tommy in Jacksonville next weekend! Antonio Balbi is doing better after his Daytona crash and will go back to Brazil to race his national championship starting in a couple of weeks. 

Geez, you know you're fucking up when the whole damn team is missing a race. Whether it be rider selection, equipment, overall management; something needs to be changed. One rider gets hurt, you're bummed. Another gets hurt, damn you are really looking towards Jesus or Ala or whoever for some guidance. Then you fire a guy because despite the near factory equipment and support, he's made two mains all season, and replace him with a rider that immediately gets worked trying to BRO for the gusto a little too hard. Now you're on top of the bridge with a shotgun in your mouth and about a hundred sleeping pills in your cyanide cocktail.

It just makes me wonder what the hell is going on with these guys. You can chalk it all up to bad luck, but to quote my favorite slave-affairing Prez, Thomas Jefferson:“I'm a great believer in luck, and I find the harder I work, the more I have of it.” Take it for what it's worth. Of course, Hahn and Chisholm haven't made a season without getting hurt since 'Nam. And replacement riders always seem to fuck it up, which is ironic because they are being brought in for the sole reason of being at the race, for the most part, to fulfill sponsorship agreements. Now at least everyone gets to hit the bars on Friday night and maybe they'll get lucky. Here's hoping you do, MotoConcepts crew members, here's hoping you do.


  1. Pretty funny write up. Thanks for the entertainment...

  2. The post was great, but DV actually commenting was better.

    Glad to see you back at the races. Here's to keeping it on two wheels from here on out.
