After the 2019 San Diego SX, riders and teams went to social media to complain about their bodies and bikes being burned and scarred by the overuse of lime to try and dry up what was a muddy mess. We put out a report yesterday that showed some of the injuries caused by mixture of the lime and water and it wasn’t pretty.
We were told that we should be getting a press release from FELD today explaining their side of this or hopefully an apology, but so far all we have seen is a very vague press release from the AMA that we posted below. It’s one of those press release’s that literally says nothing.

PICKERINGTON, Ohio — The American Motorcyclist Association is coordinating with AMA Supercross Championship promoter Feld Entertainment to identify riders and equipment that may have been affected by track conditions at the Feb. 2 event at PETCO Park in San Diego.
“The well-being of our members is a top priority of the AMA,” said AMA Chief Operations Officer Jeff Massey. “AMA staff is monitoring the situation and working directly with Feld Entertainment as its representatives contact individual riders to assess the extent of the impact.”
