I thought the idea here was to not let the terrorists change our life. I understand the pain and grief that has been caused here, but aren't we allowing them to win by cancelling all these events? Perhaps I can understand this issue from an international travel point of view, but let's get back to as close to normal as we can here in the continental U.S. I don't think the AMA should have cancelled Willow.
I think the problem wsn't so much the reacton to the terrorist attacks as it was the impact to the logistics of getting the team and bikes over there. 4 days of interrupted air travel has messed up a lot of travel plans, and, in an effort this size, this close to the attack date would have been a doubtful exercise. FWIW, I understand some top riders from other countries have decided not to participate in the MXdN, also.
