I have some basic medical understanding and I am BLS certified.

what defies logic is the asterisk mode of operation that seems to subscribe to get them back on the bike asap. so if that is the case, stay out of it. if a rider needs attention it will be pretty obvious. if he's had a run of the mill spill, again, give him space you are not part of the race. to swarm over a guy as if the outcome of that riders finishing position is paramount his medical condition be damned makes no sense from a medical perspective. that is why they make stiff neck collars and spine boards. to immobilize. I know a guy who fell off a scaffold and the other guy on the scaffold was all busted up. they both went to the ER but the focus was on the other guy. they finally got around to looking at the lesser injured guy and his pulse was WAY over normal his heart was racing. had been for an hour. asterisks mode of operation makes. no. sense. if they are going to get back on the bike and keep racing than they should stand back and wait until their services are really needed. not jumping out into the track for a routine biff where the rider is already obviously intact and functional. if your main objective is their medical well being you don't pick somebody up like they did with Chad Reed at Dallas last year and run with them. You just don't if an EMT did that at an accident scene he'd be sued and deemed an incompetent quack. my criticism of them is warranted and in the riders best interest and those who take issue with that really are oblivious to the facts. Asterisk clearly has no guidelines, no direction, and defy standard medical procedures on a regular basis. they need to be seen and not heard to a degree and stop acting like they have a monster energy jersey on and start acting like emergency medical technicians.
I agree 100%,Ive been watching every Supercross race from start to finish for awhile,medical care looks like amateur hour,there's no set way to handle a given circumstance. Its like the medical responders are so wrapped up in the race they feel like they have to do something quick now right away.

Some of the crashes these guys take can be career enders if handled wrong,if a race has to be stopped so be it.
Its become a high dollar sport,more flaggers,more red yellow green lights like Sprint cars use,what ever it takes to control a crash situation.

I still cant believe the picking up of Chad Reed and running him off the track.............what EMT would do that anywhere at anytime after an incident like that? Spinal injury? We'll find out later.


(Weve had rain here in nor cal,the singletrack will be very good tomorrow,all decomposed granite trails and steep)

so...no Tomac. Looks like Roczen was one and done on the 350?

not sure why we had to watch Brayton run in 10th place for 2 laps. Milsapps pass of Reed for the lead via out jumping him was sweet. RV is lucky he didn't take himself out trying to run inside of Milsapps 2 laps in a row that made no sense in that turn. that sandy dirt made those turns nice and loose there must have been dirt flying all over the place. Forgot how cool that stadium is I onder how much a room was overlooking the action. Hahn made a nice plug for his helmet company claims be crashed with it and feels great! RV's continued fake swigs of Monster Energy Products aren't exactly ringing endorsements? You think they'd MAKE him drink it. I try to not go there but I just don't like Wharton. RC is goat and he's got like 30 less SX wins than McGrath?

Wharton seems beyond desperate to make his mark out there,takes too many people down,his passes are rarely clean even when they probably could be.
Really fast guys make it look easy.

The thread is about supercross, at one point can people talk about results?

I'm over KW, bring back ricky with all of his grammar errors.

Hey Ricky you're so fine, you're so fine you blow my mind, hey Ricky!

I think Ms. Supercross is has missed a couple trips to the gym.

The speed those bike accelerate in the dirt is just crazy.

I must say, this SX thread is one of the best these days. I don't follow SX that closely, but I learn a lot reading here. Thanks

I don't understand why you would read the SX thread on race night if you didn't want to know the results. Seems rather silly, no?

I wonder if the network noticed? I see Erins replacement and Erin and Danica moving on to monster trucks.

If I miss the race...I come here in the morning to see if I should waste two hours on Sunday watching it. Supercross reruns are still better than NASCAR live.
