FIM to supermoto, motocross racers: cut your hair, hippies

Included in a new set of rules issued by the FIM Motocross/Supermoto Grand Prix Commission is the following new regulation: “Long hair must be contained within the helmet.” In one fell swoop this, combined with a lack of talent, squashes my dream of becoming a world champion supermoto racer.

    Long hair and motorcycles go together like peanut butter and jelly.

    • Wes

      I couldn’t agree with you more.

  • Tyler

    What pile of crap—- Well when the bald guys grow hair short, Ill cut my hair short.

  • Ben Part

    An Andre Agassi moment? I think not.

    This smells of the classic final sequence from Easy Rider when red neck shouts to Billy (Hopper) “Why don’t you get a hair cut!?” before filling him with lead.

  • Ben Part

    what a cool shot of you Wes!
    There wont be many pick-ups passing through to be flippin’ bird to, so you should be safe.

  • baddad

    Of course, they should be also straight and white only!?!?!?!?!

    • de facto

      that’s already a defacto rule, isn’t it? lol

  • Deartháir

    Pfft. I’ve been telling you to get a damn haircut for months now, Wes. This just backs me up, and proves that’s exactly what you should be doing. And get a real job, while you’re at it. Damn kids these days. Why in MY day…

    …and stay off my lawn!

  • Deb

    i think you look adorable,Wes!!no long hair in any helmet!!!no no no

  • Redleg

    I wonder how long before FIM tries to impose something like this in the GP classes? Will Dorna protect Marco Simoncelli? Now that boy’s got some hair!
