During Detroit post-race interview, Hunter Lawrence of HRC Honda shared his thoughts on the latest drama involving Haiden Deegan and Jordon Smith, as well as the use of block passes in Supercross racing. He spoke about how the perception of the sport has changed over time and how it’s fascinating to see how people on social media often praise the intense racing of the past while simultaneously criticizing the aggressive moves of today’s riders. This curious phenomenon warrants attention and analysis, and Lawrence provides his perspective on the matter.
Hunter Lawrence said : ” I think I just wanted to point something out which kind of it amazes me so much of the people on social media where everyone puts their you know expertise in say oh they’re racing back in the 90s early 2000s like they where men, they always talk about how gnarly it was and then anytime a block pass or something happens now everyone cries about it it’s that’s just kind of a bit interesting it’s either you know pick line you see the one the gnarly block passes from 10 years ago and then when you get it everyone makes a big song and dance about it so that’s my perspective you know I think it’s bit funny how that works. Take what you want everyone’s easy to point the finger you know we’re out there making decisions at split millisecond you know people have all months to pay their phone bill and they still can’t do that on time so we’re making decisions at you know such a fast reaction adrenaline you know and everyone not just saying it for me or Hayden or speak for all the guys you know no one’s perfect and we’re under a microscope out there so the media is really quick to point the finger when someone makes a mistake .
