    Nice to see Dungey exercise a bit of aggression.

    Was the kid knocked out? It looked like they were ready to give him his last rights fer cryin out loud. I though he had died. You have concussion rules in sports, but it gets blown off all the time. The mechanism of injury was great and severe enough to warrant a trip via the bus to a E.R. for full assessment with an MRI or cat scan. Shining a flashlight in his eye and asking him if he's OK isn't enough after that get off.

    I'm sure it will be the topic of discussion elsewhere. :1drink

    This one sounds more like a mechanical than a crash?

    The cable service on Maui doesn't seem to have speed channel...

    Are they limited to one bike per rider? That is the only reason I could think they would not wheel in a back up bike? :ear

    This is a character building season for him. He is riding fast at 98% instead of 110%. He is still into it instead of walking away and blaming everything/one else. This season may make it possible for him to keep riding for some more seasons.
    My understanding is that the frame you qualify with is the only one you can race, as a money saving thing.

    The 6D Helmets FB page stated that Mike LaRocco reported to them that Zach had passed the SCAT 9 concussion test after both falls and that he was sore but OK.

    They have to use the bike he qualified on, switching bikes will get you D/Q'd.
    That rule applies in amateur racing as well.:deal

    they're fucking moron's who think they are part of the race. x rays? why bother? pick him up like a sack of potato's and run around with him you don't need to worry about stabilizing people who've just been subjected to a high impact trauma. they are in a word inept and really do behave as if they are an active part of the competition. dipshits.

    and fun it was. so glad I picked Dallas. that stadium is built for a big show and it did not disappoint. clean bathrooms, all things considered food wasn't ridiculously priced. traffic post race seemed fairly well coordinated. the place looked to be 3/4 full. Diana Dahlgren on the big TV, I
    could look at that girl all day long, what a babe.

    the track layout was really cool how they went from turn one into a straight which would not in that order all subsequent times around. they used the berm of the outside of turn one as a jump when they came back on that part of the track. pretty cool. Windham retired because he is afraid of getting hurt, he keeps that stuff up with his xfer jumps he'll still get his chance. :huh

    quit while your ahead not the brightest move my god talk about "when somebody say's hey watch this" it's a fucking accident waiting to happen and given it's into a semi dark corner of the track why bother most people can't see it anyway.

    they did a tribute on the big screen to the ATV freestyler who was killed and the Navy Seal sniper and the other guy who was killed. nice touch. very well run show for the most part.
