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.

My brother and I were talking about the new season Saturday. I said we HAVE to make the Monster Cup because it's the first race of the season and no one is injured. :)

'Poto,Reed and Dungey are the obvious guys to watch. I think Rattray,Tickle and Barcia will be occasional spoilers. Wilson? Dunno he's been hot and cold lately. Sadly I think Stewart is done. Too much time off the bike and out of the game has passed.

250's going to be a crapshoot.

Barmy,

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

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.

Watching his crash again is painful. I hope they fixed his boot hooking issues.
