It needs to be said that Trey is a hero for sticking through all of this. And he'll be even a bigger stud if he keeps putting the event on after this headache is over. BMX needs more Trey Jones'.

Well, at least Trey is erring on the side of caution and pushing it out. The said part is that October may not work either based on how COVID-19 is progressing. Without a vaccine, everyone that attends will still be at risk. I’m not sure what kind of hold harmless or insurance Trey carries, but you can’t indemnify death caused by catching a virus at your event. Luckily it’s in Florida, and that governor is a moron, so he may open up when his dad Trump tells him to. All in all, this is a great event, and I hope it still happens...because it will mean some things are back to “normal”.

Trey clearly acknowledges that not happening in October is a possibility and what he will do if that's the case. Nobody thinks you can "indemnify death caused by catching a virus at your event."
