The American Motorcyclist Association released a statement on the San Diego Supercross round due to the lime destroying expensive bikes and giving chemical burns to the riders. Riders went viral on Social Media showing their chemical burns to their bodies. Mechanics and privateer riders also have voiced about their bikes being damaged in the process. It is good to hear that the AMA and Feld are looking to help riders in need.
