Game on!

Should be an interesting season with Cat pulling back racer support and no official 2020 race sleds, we'll see how the new Indy XCR stacks up and who knows what Doo might do as their 600 is supposed to be a runner.

Would be fun to see more of these from the big dogs

Word on the street is they didn’t build enough to meet the minimum build requirements so the 2020 can only be raced in the mod class

they're already practicing on Pine Lake - 5" of ice supposedly. crnr2crnr would wear a life jacket though.

they didn't produce 250 R XC's so they won't qualify but people can race their 2019, 2018, etc., that's the rumor on the street at least. so, if you bought a 2020 R XC with intentions to race it this year, well I another thing, the 2020 is a 137", and part of me wonders if the racers don't want the 137" over the 129" and don't know if they'll be able to use the 2020 front end, would imagine they can run 2020 ZR6000's and such, or maybe someone will get really creative and race a Riot 6000 for Cat race fans, it's all sort've fuckered up this year.

It should be a good year for competitive racing.

Well it is true 2020 cat can not race factory pro classes. Heard they only built 30 of them. We did buy one but will race it in improved classes. Will be interesting to see how 137 does in terrain racing compared to 129. Not sure yet but will find out....

Cat has done so well in USXC and ISOC year after year, which IMHO, is the best flatland racing in the world. For all the jabs people throw at the ProCross it has still been a very competitive flatlander. Will be interesting to see how many folks race Cats this year and what classes.
