I sure hope so. I never got to race it but I plan on it if it ever comes back. Looks like there are starting to be more pit bike races again so that's a good sign!

Would be great to see. I think there would need to be a re-vamp and simplifying of the rules to really kick-start it again. In my opinion the rules became too complex and there were too many classes, but they were forced down that road with how massive the Mini Moto SX became.

There was a mini team from here a couple of my good friends that had all intentions on going the last year. Long story short they ended up not going, but they had the whole set up and sponsors to go it was sweet.

I agree about the classes, there are so many variations on the bikes.

If someone like RedBull or Monster or some other big name company who is into promoting huge events came along, something similar could definitely come back. Just need a few people high ranked to get it going. A few small events by those companies for test races so to speak would be awesome. Eventually building up from those smaller events into something like MMSX would rule.

I'm just glad the wheels are turning and more mini moto events are surfacing again.

I wish it would come back. I'd go every year if I got the chance. I got to race the last one they had. I was a late guy to the pitbike scene. I'm thankful I made the last one. If they had a big event I'd Def go again

Your first paragraph summarizes the issue... Everyone plans, rarely is there execution.

I have the same frustration around the vintage mini scene.

In order for this and other mini markets to grow, it has to be the top priority for all involved. Casual interest and sporadic involvement kills anything.

Right on, HFM. It seems once it is gone is when everyone wishes they would have gone. Sometimes it is a grind to get there, but once you do, there is nothing like hanging with some mini men. Couldn't help but think your post was influenced by the experience we have had at Barber...a top-notch motorcycle club gives us a premier event and location to do a mini-meet, and the somewhat tepid response the first two years means there might not be a third year. PM members 817, Pervis, and I went to the last MMSX, and the writing was on the wall that it was going to be the last one. Talk is cheap as they say, and the road to hell paved with good intentions, but if you don't show up to your local events, travel to regional ones, haul yer butt out early in the morning and go ride, don't be surprised if the scene dies. We gotta show up!

Its reassuring to know there's guys on here die-hard into minis. I'm glad I finally registered on these forums and got a bike again; I've been a lurker since the mid 2000's and its just nice to know I'm not on my own when it comes to the mini life. The scene here is stagnant and I'm really hoping I can change that. I've got a few plans on paper for organizing a few mini events in the local (100 mile radius) area. I'll definitely be putting up that info here if things can keep rolling and become official.

Anyways, overall it really seems like things are slowly but surely improving when it comes to events and interest in mini moto. I hope the new year brings more dedicated riders. Ultimately it could lead to an event similar to the MMSX!

I went to the last three years of mmsx and it was a blast it's one of the things I looked forward to every year. Sucks it's gone I'm still hoping it comes back though I'd go every year for sure.
