That doesn't even resemble an MX track! A buncha singles and sand?

Referring to Losail up there

All that dirt you see probably had to be shipped in, that country is nothing but pulverized clay and sand (think Ocean floor). I saw that RV was 11th in open practice.

I just spent 4 months over there, would have loved to have been there for this race.

He was 8th in his qualifying race, 33 sec back. I don't know how long the race was though.

Doesn't sound too good?

Is there a AdvRider thread for this yet? I think we're all interested but shouldn't really be cluttering up the SX thread.

If you watch the video it looks more like a dirt track. I'm sure he'll do much better in the race.
I won't tag him to win, but top 4.
I'll bet he wins by the 2nd race.

RV was 9th in race 1

Although I would like to see him dicing with Cairoli, Nagl, Paulin, DeDyker and the rest of them I think he will struggle to podium regularly... he doesn't know the tracks nor does he have the pace for the euro tracks and condtions that the regulars have. I may be wrong... and hope he does well.

Onboard at this weekends track..
