    I was not sold on RV, but WTF was that?! They couldn't keep up with all of his mistakes. What happened when he tossed his glove? I did hate to see him limping after one of them. Hope it's not his same knee.

    That was a great night of racing.
    I don't think anyone even thought of Millsaps.
    I was wondering why he managed to put Stewart behind him in the heat race.
    Watching Villapoto fall 3 times was shocking.

    Well, my prediction went right in the shitter!:huh

    It was a great race though and hopefully sets up for a great season.

    I don't wish anything bad on Villopoto but it will be even more interesting with him having to come from behind in the points.
    I still think at some point in the season he's going to go on a run and when he does he'll be real tough to beat.

    I think the guys used to finishing 5th to 10th last year are gonna be shuffled back a few places too, Millsaps being a hopefull exception.


    Here's to hollering at my TV again and freaking out my dogs!!!!!!:clap

    I would not count RV out just yet. I bet next week he comes back swinging.

    How many fucking years did it take to get those nitwits to build something with real suspension, and now they want to put mountain bike parts on it?

    I've never seen Milsaps look that good. He has always been a big dude, but he now looks lean, mean, and hungry. I think he may be a regular up there with the rest of the elite guys this season.

    Grant. Sheesh. He almost took out Stewart, too, practically t-boned his rear tire, then RV too, and who knows who else. I know this is not tiddly winks, but those looked intentional to me.

    Don't know what happened with RV. Maybe trying too hard to live up to expectations. Stewart-syndrome? Unfortunately, Broc Tickle was running really good, and became collateral damage in RV's carnage. Tickle was right there in about 8th place racing with Stewart before RV got out of control and knocked one of those stupid tuff blocks out in front of him. RV was a one man wrecking ball in that race. I feel bad for Tickle.

    Kind of surprised with how well Andrew Short finished, too. A lot of guys were pretty well under the radar going in. Not any more!

    And damn ... can't say enough about Canard! He's one tough hombre. :bow I hope is bad luck changes to good luck. So far so good. :thumb

    it was somewhat surreal. RV did look really good in his heat race though. wow what a charge. assuming his knee's are ok and the limp last night was nothing serious I'd expect his finish next week to be more in the top half of 16 instead of the bottom. :huh

    incredible race last night Canard was awesome who could have expected him to be that good. I guess it's like riding a bicycle...he sure hasn't forgotten. Like I said earlier that kid or anyone else has got to have god given cardio to run that fast that long. all the riders made the whoops seem like low level speed bumps they were flying across them.

    good luck to Roczen winning that Lites West title..:wink:

    Well...KTM is claiming they can save 12 lbs on air suspension.

    All aluminum construction on the suspension, no steel spring or shaft.

    I thought it interesting that the injured Stewart won his heat race, but then observe who he was racing against. All his main competition was in the other heat. Get to the main and he was an also-ran. I really didn't think we was even going to start. Wonder if he got an ultimatum from corporate.

    They will sell every one they can produce, the super senior class of your local AMA district will be full of them.
