    Looks like it could get ugly between Grant and Stewart, which will get dirty and punt someone into the stands?

    Just watching the 450 main again... noticed that Barcia cased it on the very first lap too, just after the start... lost a couple places in the process. He did it AGAIN on lap 3 and had to drop out. Wonder what was up with all that? Three different times! Was he missing shifts or something? Those are always ugly... I'm constantly worried somebody is going to land on top of them when they do that.

    :huh

    I don't find anything funny about a rider getting hurt. Nothing.

    He had a bad crash at his practice track between A1 and Phoenix as well and jacked up his shoulder. It is such a mental game at their level, this stuff will begin to eat at him if he doesn't shake it off well. At their level, I can't imagine the level of commitment and mental clarity thatit takes to launch off of a series of rhythm jumps. The damn rhythm sections have bigger jumps than what were once "signature" jumps. :loco

    Of course its not funny when a rider gets hurt.. thats not what I was pertaining to.. sorry if it came off wrong.

    Speaking of Dungey again.. he did say that off the gate something went wrong mechanically during his heat race.. maybe there were still issues with the bike from that incident.

    I'm so bummed Speed doesn't telecast every race, its just no fun watching only an hour on CBS.. booooo :cry

    this one is really cool, gives a good perspective of just what those guys are staring down. my good look at those angles I for the life of me can't figure out how todays riders think of stuff like this as normal or at least doable.

    no thanks. :hide

    even during the Mains I saw empty seats, I'd be curious to know attendance.

    cool shots!

    I heard it was 30,000 but I think that number was generous.

    don't take it personal, there a few here that get pretty emotional about this stuff

    When I watched the race from Saturday I was marveling at the thought that on any given weekend right now there at least 7 or 8 guys that are a safe bet to win, plus a few wild cards like Brayton.
    This seems like the thickest field of fast guys for as long as I've been a fan.

    Maybe Dungey can't keep up thanks to that new fangled on-board electric start on his race bike. If it were so good they would use it in Moto GP! :hide


    That was the best track I've seen in a few years other than Daytona. They've been getting kind of cookie cutter, one lined and bland for the past 2 or 3 years. It seemed to give the riders lots of good passing opportunities to! :clap Hopefully they keep it up.

    In the past, there was one alien, maybe two. The rest fought for third.

    Now, there is no dominant rider. Should make for good racing while the riders are still healthy.

    Has anyone heard any news on a possible Barcia injury from last weekend? I am thinking that if he broke his nose (which looked really possible) it could be hard to breath in the next couple rounds...

    Maybe. Villapoto looked unstoppable. I think his bike is dialed and the cobwebs from the layoff are gone. After watching him this weekend, I think everybody else is fighting for 2nd in the championship.

    As much as I hate to admit it, I think this is the way it's going to be.
    However, he can't screw up because there will be 4 guys right at his heels, not going to be any of those 20 sec or more leads.

    I read he had a gash on his eye brow which needed stitches and broken nose... no confirmation if he'll race in Oakland but.. I have a feeling he'll be back and ticked off.. look out!! Video of his incident: http://www.motoxaddicts.com/2013/01/20/justin-barcia-casing-triple-2013-anaheim-2-sx/

    Something to hold us over till Saturday..

    I wonder if he will go the way of offroad-Not 110% all of the time and Mike Brown and others seem to be doing rather well...I would like to see him ride more perhaps just not MX

    >"Villapoto looked unstoppable. "

    Yup.

    1st race : He was behind and tried to make up places too fast, lunched.
    I think he learned from that.

    2nd race : He was back and passed every rider but Barcia. I think that another two or three laps and he would have passed for first.

    3rd race : Back and he passed every rider.

    If he gets a start, I think he's just gone. (Unless he lawn-darts or gets taken out by someone else)
