After Armstrong's confession,and reading Tyler Hamilton's book,I wouldn't doubt all of them are.
Flug, do you realize how much you have in common with RC?
1)you're both redheads
2)you both love mx/sx
3)you both are the best racers that your respective parents produced
4)you both may or may not have indulged in drug use for whatever reason
Oh. Your right about that.
For those wishing for KDub in a broadcast booth he was on the "Supercross Live" streaming (Supercrossonline.com) of the qualifying practice. And just as we thought he was great! Intelligent commentary, polite, some light humor. But he was just visiting, hopefully he will get some on-air time on the race broadcast.
The other Kevin isn't too bad either.
I'll bet he looks quite dapper in a sport jacket as well.
Pretty good. He's really whipping it out there!
Almost as mush as Guy Cooper used to. Flug, Cooper is the fastest rider to NEVER win a Supercross, lots of podiums and bad luck whenever he got in front.
Did you find a place to watch the race tonight?
No disrespect intended, but who the fuck cares what 'Flug thinks?
Anyhoo, in watching RC dominate for a long while, and then JS coming up, there was a lot of excitement in the sport around what would happen ... would JS dethrone RC, and all that.
JS never did in MX. Sure, he won a few races here and there, often times they would split motos, but JS never came close to taking a title away from RC in when it came to series points. What JS did, was provide a whole lot of excitement, though, many motos were decided by a scant few seconds. Meanwhile, 3rd place was 40 seconds back. JS challenged RC in ways that no one else did. But even so, was not quite enough. RC always found a way to come up with a little more speed when he needed it. I think it totally crushed the confidence of his competition.
However, that last year that RC raced, I think it was 2007, I feel JS pretty much out rode RC in SX (not MX). Of the 7 rounds that RC rode in that series (partial because he retired mid-season), JS won 5 of those rounds between them, RC won 2. In one of those rounds, JS and Reed took each other out, which handed that one to RC, otherwise might have been 6 to 1.
So while RC was clearly dominant in MX, I feel JS was beginning to get there in SX. Unfortunately, RC retired from MX/SX early (27 years old, I think), and never gave a chance for JS to prove it. But there was nothing anyone could ever prove in MX when it came to RC - RC was pure poetry in MX, no one has ever come close to his level, for an entire series, as RC. No one that raced against him, anyway. Not even JS.
Who the fuck cares what nobrakes, thinks either.
True. It would be nice if that crew could be the race time crew.
Not gonna happen.
Those of us who agree with you of course!
May I ask who won what or do I need to wait and watch it on CBS?
When Honda bought RC, he wouldn't run the #1 plate out of respect for McGrath.
Complete results later, but in case you can't wait
I figured Grant caused the pile up
NO WAY! I can't wait for noon!
Supercross now. Lites at 1700 est on speed
wow that was an interesting first turn. :huh
