Barmy,

How many Nationals did you make this year? How many SX's have you made in the last 5?

it looks like the current old guard may finally be faced with reality. I didn't like when Hannah came along and started beating my hero's Weinert, Gary Jone's, and all the rest of them. The cycle continues..If Barcia and Dean Wilson are on 450's somethings got to give. Assuming Reed, Stewart, Dungey, Villopotto, Windham, and Canard are running good, there already isn't enough room in the top 5. As much as I hate to say it (don't like him) Barcia (and Wilson) are going to make the current pot boil over. How much longer can Windham defy time and age? This truly is now or never for Reed/Stewart.

Somethings got to give. You really can't even look at top 5, maybe 8 is a better number. Can Nicoletti get up in there? If Weimer up's his game he'll crowd the room also.

If I had to pick right now I'd pick......

The larger the top group becomes, the more it plays to RD. Mr. Consistent, always in the top 5. The rest will win,dnf, or injure themselves and miss a few rounds.

good point. the top 5 COULD be 10 guys easy.

Villopotto
Reed
Stewart
Dungey
Canard
Windham
Barcia
Weimer
Millsapps

and an easy 5 more guys fighting for the 10th spot in the top 5.

Nicoletti? Metcalfe? Tickle? Izzi? Short? Grant?

maybe Jason Lawrence will make a comeback?

Of that list Barcia is the only one possible to break into the top five.

Millsapps and Weimer we know can't match their pace, Windam can get close on a good day but at best he's a 6th place.

All those other guys are proven fade to midpack riders.

All that is assuming the fast five are all healthy.

Reed was out racing at Dade City raceway down here in Florida on Sat. He was on a 2013 450 and looked pretty comfortable.

Very cool to hear. I always wonder about guy's mentalities coming back from injury. He's seasoned and has good perspective. Will Canard be timid and not push it or will he be desperate and go for wins? Will Stewart keep being Stewart or can Suzuki get him to calm it down a notch? Will RV be back to championship speed? Will DW be physically strong enough to bang with the 450s?

I read that Phil didn't have a ride yet.

Definately going to be interesting; lots of really good riders this year. If they all stay healthly it will be great racing.

Dungey
Villapoto
Reed
Barcia
Canard
Stewart
Wilson
Tickle
Weimer
Brayton
Windham
Short

... and the dark horse; Bobby K. If he gets a ride.

Whoever compared supercross to NASCAR... STFU.
