This is the main reason why I dont even really race anymore. I did almost no races this year. The prices keep getting higher and higher and unless if your on the inside of the nbl you suffer. Trust me if there was an alternative I would be going for it. It just seems like they dont care about the riders just their money. Thats why ive saved over $3,000 so far this season by not racing. So instead I took that money and put it into my truck, now I have somthing to show for the money I put out. Instead of cheaply made # plates.
