When it comes to Covid-19 there are two camps...

one who deal in science, facts, and precautions...

and...

the kind of person that would go to Sturgis/Miami Beach/Underground Clubs/Gyms/100+ person weddings at a church/restaurant (like in SF last week where even the bride and groom got Covid19)...(you know Karens and Brians!)


Now...if AFM can get a date for a race...I'll be there to watch...but in a multi layer mask, very socially distant and sleeping in my van...but I'm still guessing that the whole season is AWOL...not even sure there would be a 2021 season...

My cousin is the #1 women's Bicycle XO for USA (2019 World Champion), and she is now thinking Tokyo 2021 may not happen...right in the middle of her prime and being top seeded...so sad...everyone has a story it seems...

Sorry to hear that. It really sucks for world class athletes that have been dedicating themselves to an Olympic sport.. and many others too.

She must be bummed.

Now there are 451,000.

Nice try though.
The Florida Daytona was in early March and mostly out of state bikers attend. I don't think current numbers have anything to do with Bike Week.

Nice try, though.

Decided not to go... Sucks though, this time next year I'll be back in Texas and the ride to Sturgis will not be as satisfying as it would from Cali. I've never been and it was one of my check list items to do, while living in Cali.

That's exactly the point.

The risk was low in the US as a whole at the beginning of March and is far far higher today.

But we'll see if, miraculously, a quarter of a million anti maskers sharing spit for 10 days at Sturgis will have any impact.

We need examples of terrible judgement to improve our ability to convince rational people to take precautions for the good of the Country.

Lol. The sturgis crowd doesn’t seem like the type that wears masks or practice social distancing.
