Watching MXGP of Argentina I was assailed by a doubt: given the trend towards modification of technical racetracks into super fast ones, will we need dirtbikes with fairings as MotoGP bikes to achieve good laptimes?
Fairings in MX are not a novelty, we collected for you some random pics from the 90s till nowadays which show you ugly bikes weighed down by big plastics. Btw, luckly these plastics are more useful for catching some money from sponsors rather than for getting a better aerodynamic performance.
Guardando la MXGP in Argentina mi è venuto un dubbio, vista la tendenza a mutare piste tecniche in piste veloci, avremo bisogno di moto carenate per fare i tempi?
Abbiamo raccolto per voi una serie di foto dagli anni 90 e qualcuna dai giorni nostri che mostrano motociclette orribili appesantite da ingombranti plastica per la gioia degli sponsor.

I hope no one of my friends will have to race on a ride thats looks like a speedway bike!
