It's MOTOCROSS, not MOTORCROSS!!!!

I just watched the Glen Helen MX on tape and had to rewind it to check he REALLY said it and he did it all thoughout the program. What a dweeb, you expect Eckmann to say something like this but Coombs...

I doubt it...

Davey has been racing/riding for years (pretty fast by the way), publishes the best MX rag in the business, etc., etc...

Besides, you probably just told him yourself.

Maybe he lost a bet and he has to say motorcross on the air. Hey it's possible. Or maybe it's an old habit that he's had since he was a youth (ute?). But I would have to agree that he knows the proper use of the word. Plus, Davey Coombs is no dweeb. He is very, very cool:cool: Just look at what he does for a living. He goes to every Supercross and every National Moto(r)cross. He parties with his buddies, he makes tons of money, he is on TV every week, he has a beeeutiful wife, and a great magazine. Seems like the definition of cool, if you ask me.

I think anyone from the Coombs family has earned the right to call it "dumpycross" if they feel like it.

Not to mention the guy has(had?) pro class speed and races ametuer day at the Nats. He used to race pro but decided it wasn't the best for his future and look where he is now.
