    This coming Sunday. Looks like it's 2 half hour shows.

    BTW, The Moto: Inside the Outdoors on Fuel has started for those that missed the other thread. So far 2 episodes have aired but they repeat a lot. This year's series is even more compelling because they are focusing on the rider's families and the sacrifices they make to make it in the sport.

    Should be interesting to see how a workhorse who has the corporate side dialed, RC, works with the tattooed freestyle idiot roots of Hart's deal.

    He's a marketing success story for sure, and knows his audience.

    Those can, race, those who can't, freestyle. :D

    Show was kind of cool, I hope all the contenders make it to or at least through the season. Top guys, Villapoto,Dungey,Stewert,Reed maybe Alessi and then throw in Millsaps,Barcia,Canard,Short,Weimer,Windham,Grant,Tickle and some i'm sure I am forgetting and it could be an epic season!

    as much as i hate to say it Barcia might be where to put the smart money on. Reed won me over as a fan but I think it's wishful thinking to expect him to win enough races to take the title. Dungey can't expect all the top riders to crash out every season and hasn't shown the intensity required to win SX races if they don't. If I had to bet money right now injury aside I'd go RV/Barcia or vice versa with the rest of them in a slugfest for 3rd week in week out. Can't imagine at this point Canard can pull it off but it would be fine with me.

    Pretty much completely agree with this. For me it is RV with a Dungey/Barcia battle for 2nd in the championship. I don't see Canard making a title run, but he is right there with the Stewarts and Reeds and way ahead of the Short and Alessis of the series..

    I'll give Stewart the X factor. He did win races last year. God knows what he is or isn't capable of at this point. He was running away with the outdoor title prior to the injury but given that consistency is kind of a big thing in any series and his consistency seems to be in taking himself out in new and interesting ways I won't hold my breath.

    time will tell...those 2013 450 Honda's are so freaking cool and a time will come when they redo and obsolete it. whats next traction control on the front end to prevent wash outs when turning via hydraulic countersteer using the coolant as the hydraulic?
