I see this as a result of the 14 yrs old estate keeper.

I would have to agree with this ruling, causing signing a waiver and then suing is just insane, I can't believe it is even aloud.

Pretty sucky to be sure. The underlying issue here though it the sue-happy attitude so prevalent in the US. We shouldn't need these waivers in the first place. Parents know they are getting their kid into a dangerous activity, and that they could be hurt or even killed doing it. Unless there is gross negligence on the operators part (faulty vehicle, not meeting safety standards, etc..), injuries should be accepted as inevitable.
I hope my kids will be interested in dirt bikes or othr physical sports. I certainly won't be suing a company providing a service if they get hurt unless there is a good reason to do so.

nobody should sue anyone... accidents are called that for a reason

but as mentioned above, everyone is looking for a free ride these days.

Those liability forms were really about protecting the event host or the facility for being sued for the rider negligence. They don't hold any weight when it comes to somebody being hurt because because of the promoters equipment failing or causing the injury due to poor maintenance. In other words if you a kid goes and races and falls off his bike and breaks his neck, the parents can't sue saying the officials should have prevented the accident. However, IF the accident was cause by by equipment failure because of say a caution light falls on a race track, (which I saw recently, and nobody got hurt) then it is the fault of the race track owner and the event host for failing to ensure the facility equipment won't fail during a race. Yeah accidents do happen, but facility equipment failure is rarely an accident...My 2 cents.
