Any news on Eli?I'd hate to see him drop off without a sound like Baggett.:huh
Baggett is scheduled to race East Coast lites. He'll be there. Don't expect a lot from him though, he's more an outdoor MX racer than indoor sprints. He'll be toward the front but not at the front.
The 450 was a great race, you have to look at what's going on, don't just fixate on first place. Except I really hated to see two top riders limping off the track.
Damn, lots of guys getting hurt. Tomac down in the 250's... Barcia and Stewart hurt in the 450's. Who's next. Its madness out there.
Good ride by Dungey to get on the box. He doesn't seem to be as fast as he was last year... wonder if it has anything to do with distractions off the track..... I think his girlfriend is 2nd from the left...
Honda needs to slip a factory bike under Shorty ASAP. He deserves it.
Hey mdub; my oldest son was there and he said Canard and Ryan's run through the pack was the highlight of the show. It was my son's first SX, and he has raced motorcycles for a long time... 'Course he made the classic rookie fan mistake by selecting his seats low near the track.
The place was packed and they had to park a mile away in overflow lots. No wonder those kids make so much money in SX...
Honda gave Short a factory bike for years and he did nothing with it.
I saw Shorts bike last night at the race and it looked like the same bike without the Mcgrath team graphics. Not that I could really tell.
Did anyone notice in the 250 coverage that Roczen fell 4 seconds back of Seely on about lap 4 (right after the firt Tomac crash)? They didn't show it in the coverage but he had a HUGE moment on the finish line double. He gets on he gas into the double, which th guys were taking as a right hand turn, and his back wheel slides out going up the face of the jump. He goes off the jump sideways at about 90 degrees, but has slowed down alot so doesn't really catch a whole lot of air. He lands between the two jumps, still 90 degrees to the direction of travel, gets the bike back under him, and can then go over the landing ramp to start chasing Seely. He was much, much faster thn Seely and it was obvious that Roczen would catch him, it was just a matter of when. It happened on lap 12, so it took him about 8 laps to close about 4 seconds. Impressive.
And from practice on, Tomac didn't have anything for Roczen last night. Roczen was just on, and then Tomac got the bad start and things went south from there.
I was curious to see on TV who caused that turn 2 pile-up in the 450s. Didn't expect it to be Reed, but that's what it looked like to me.
Barcia gets carted off two weeks in a row and Flug is impressed and feels for him but when Stewart gets hit in a turn by an out of control rider Flug questions how he falls off the bike.
Me thinks the scales of justice are unbalanced.
I hope Reed finds some money and a bike for him.
I hope that is the case. He did very well last night, considering.
Very cool. I have only been to Arenacross races. No SX for mid Atlantic and NE.
Maybe Short will get hooked up on the Geico 450.
he needs to try harder to say on the bike. I don't see a big upside for him in endurocross.
Baggett started the first Anaheim race.He practiced for the second Rd. but was a no show at the race.I found this.
Sounds like he's done till the outdoors.Now,what about Eli?
Shift said they have announcement later this week about TwoTwo Racing. Maybe Chad Reed will have his two rider team. Could it be Andrew Short.
Mike Alessi in the top 5 is the world coming to a end.
Half of the top 10 was on the ground in the second turn.
True, but Alessi always fades back in supercross.
Hopefully they will never put a whoop section in again after the first turn.
I would put whoops in the start straight.
Now wouldn't that make getting the holeshot a lot more interesting.
Then the thing to do would be just sit on the gate until they all went down and then pick your way through.

watch JS7's bars as 22 and milz slow up, setting up for turn..
JS7 was expected to have trouble in right hand turns with his brake and putting the foot down..when 22 and Milz squeezed, JS couldn't tap the rears and get out, so he turned into Reed over Suzuki mate Milz..
watch his bars..
karma got JS7 instantly for his 22 fixation, he came out the worst of all
22 threw that Zuk like a boss, 'was trying to smash levers or something with that 'toss action'..
that was a wild track...technical
best races were the heat races, couple crashes there too
bet no one will bother tuning in 5 days for live 3 hour A3. period. after. this. crap. right?
