Those guys remember what happened last year to Villopoto,it was basically done,see you outdoors.As for Ralphie boy,"Oh he closed up on thet lap,gained 4 tenths,its down to 1.5 seconds!"is very annoying.I've been watching races for 50 years,I know whats happening.:ddog
I thought he clinched it then got hurt and missed the outdoors?
Exactly what happened, there was only one healthy rider left for outdoors last year.
Hmmm, Mcgrath has one outdoor title (1995), and Villopoto has.... one outdoor title (2011). How many titles did Mcgrath win in the 'boys' series?
The same number of premier class titles as Rossi.
I believe he would have had 1 more if he didn't switch to Suzuki and piss off Honda that year.
Still bullshit that these guys skip the real races, and he is the one who started that.
Very nice guy, actually his whole family is really cool, and a great representative of the sport.
Honda came out with that 2x4 aluminum frame,McGrath knew he couldnt win on it and bailed.
I think he was sick of Honda anyway. He knew just how to make that older steel frame work.
He found out pretty quick after he bailed who was in control of works suspension components at Showa.
Also that the Suzuki had clutch problems that even the factory couldnt fix right away,then I think he had a flat at a bad time,he struggled but still nearly won it. And was happy to be done with the Suzuki.
Honda has always had the opinion it's their bikes that win championships and riders are interchangeable.
Rossi drilled it into their head pretty convincingly that the best rider could smoke any Honda on a Yamaha that needed work.
McGrath on a Yamaha also showed them their error.
Here is to a great supercross season...
Can anyone confirm this quote from RV's parents?...
"Ryan better succeed in MX/SX, cuz he can't do anything else..."
Somewhere I heard this quote attributed to RV's parents...anyone hear that?
Just wondering...seemed kinda surprising to me.
That was a quote from his sister on the Poto Story show.
Ryan and his brother supposedly did poorly in school, and it was from a number of years ago.
It seemed like a pretty boring season to me especially considering the hype of such a stacked field. Not many battles for the lead. At least there were no major injuries from the top riders.
You need to watch closer,it was one of the best seasons ever,250's slashed and crashed and bashed regularly,desperate times for some of them.
Villapoto didnt start his runaway wins till more then halfway through,Milsaps put on a great show,Stewart did his thing one way or the other,Dungey always chasing after endless bad starts,there's more to racing then racing for the lead.
Its not scripted,its racing and what happens,happens.
