    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......:hmmmmm:scratch:dunno

    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.

    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? :poser

    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.

    Chad Reed My Way Episode 1

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

    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?

    Uhh your memory is not to good.. Villopoto won last year and got hurt at the last race..Millsaps had the best year he has had in his career..
    There was more injuries then I have ever seen but that got to do a lot of things...Stewart does not count he is always hurt..hahaha.

    comparing to Supercross to Nascar though..?....come on...

    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.:lol3

    Whoever compared supercross to NASCAR... STFU.
