Nice! Is it me, or do those tires lack the aggression for gravel-dusted hard pack?

Nice to see the two previous two-wheel crashes were both low-sides. Good sign of aggression for the riders (when the rider has more courage than the tires, it's a good sign), and much safer than high-siding out of a turn.

BMX tracks have changed a lot since the 80's and 90's that most older riders remember. The turns in general are taller and sloped more than in the past. It is also very common for the tracks to pave the turns. In areas where it rains often they pretty much have to due to the lack of people willing to volunteer. The riders expect polished tracks, ride clipped in, and the younger riders ride on tires that have as much in common with road tires as they do MTB tires.

Even the tracks with dirt turns aggressively water the turns and keep them well swept off. I only know of one old school BMX track, that would benefit from using knobby tires. That track is Rebel BMX in Monroe LA. Other than Rebel, there are hardly any tracks today where it would help a rider to use a tire such as you mentioned. By the way, the common pressure ran by riders in my area is close to 60-65 psi at the BMX tracks.

Does the TF actually know about the soda cans and PVC pipe from 30 years ago?

Wow, it has been a while. Thanks for the summary on changes. In the crash image, it looked like washing out due to not enough traction. I saw all the pavement at the last couple of Olympics, and can certainly appreciate a slick tire there. Even back in the 90s, I was riding Slickrock Canyon on my 26" MTB with road slicks (super fun on the steepest of terrain).

Interestingly, there's been a move to lower tire pressures in road racing. Many of the tubless systems now can operate at 20-30psi lower than a tubed clincher at the same rolling resistance (bigger contact patch, yadda/yadda). I much prefer slicks full time for racing and training on the road.

Happy shooting!
