SHOULD HAVE ADAM CIANCIARULO BEEN DOCKED FOR GOING OFF THE TRACK? JUSTIN COOPER THOUGHT SO
During the third round of the AMA Pro Motocross outdoor National series in Thunder Valley this last weekend during the second 250 moto Adam Cianciarulo went off the track when he was behind leader Justin Cooper. As you can see from the video above, Adam had no where to go back on the track until the next right hand corner due to banners. Yes, Adam pinned it up the fire road to find a place back onto the track, and some would say he initially got back on the track closer to Cooper than before he went off the track. From Justin’s point of view it probably looked bad as Adam came on the track right next to him. What Justin didn’t see was Adam chopping the throttle when he got back on and even taking a hand off as Adam realized he needed to gap himself from Cooper if he didn’t want any trouble with the AMA.
ADAM’S POV OF GOING OFF THE TRACK AND JUSTIN’S CRASH | FORWARD TO 3:25 AND 4:30 FOR THE ACTION
The AMA rules are clear that if a rider goes off the track he needs to find a safe place to get back on without advancing himself in any way. Adam did just that, in a way. Maybe Adam shouldn’t have raced down the fired road. But he did put a nice gap between Justin and himself by the time he got back on the gas.
Does AMA have a good rule in place for this? Should there be designated places to get back on it the rider goes off? Should riders get a penalty for going off the track? The AMA rule may be clear, but there may need to be other precautions put into place to minimize the grey area.
