    If he cleans up the knee and makes it less of an issue with his speed later in the races, he can potentially salvage a top 3 or 4 position in the series with some strong rides.

    Fine old tradition at ADV,second guess pro racers,make fun of their foibles,comment on their lack of bravery.

    All while having never once started a race of their own.

    I wouldn't be surprised if there weren't more than a few current racers and ex-racers in this thread.

    Look at the timed results for Saturday, after 20 minutes Villipoto, Millsaps, Dungey and Reed were within 10 seconds.
    That's some close racin' folks!
    During that time Dungey stalled his engine somehow, and Reed was riding with a knee that is not full strength.

    Villipoto ain't running away with nothing even though he has the points lead today.


    Next guy was Barcia 30 seconds behind.

    Went to subway and found the Pit Passes in the center of the building. Kinda in the flyer section. Didn't have to ask the old bag behind the counter for the passes so I took 7. :lol3 I'll pass them out when I stand in line to get in.

    Now I have to check out the Cub foods discount.

    I caught a part of a live Chad Reed interview yesterday and I think I heard he has a 2nd rider lined up, and a bike is being readied.

    I liked Andrew Short for a 22 seat when he first lost his Mcgrath ride. I am sure he has a contract on that KTM now. He's no race winner, but he is consistent, gets starts and TV time, and is a way better SX racer than Alessi or Josh Grant and somehow those guys continue to get rides.

    It won't be an American rider, unless Honda has some influence. :deal

    Just looking at the outdoor national schedule.

    Anyone in the Northeast if they wanted to commit to drive on Friday and Sunday can hit in succession:

    Bristonl TN June 1
    High Point PA June 8
    Budds Creek MD June 22
    Southwick MA June 29
    Red Bud MI July 6

    And then wait till August 10 for Unadilla.

    6 doable Nationals in 70 days.

    That schedule looks like a Deadhead revival tour. Except that there's no band. Or free drugs. Or free sex with girls that hadn't showered in a week or two. Man, I miss those days...

    Yeah,Hangtown in the 70's was almost too much fun,station wagon races,mini bike races at 2 in the morning with firepit involved,just all kinds of necessary stuff. Hannah used to come out and party a bit.
