    Well I for one thought Dungey's conditioning would help him prevail in the second motos.I was wrong,Villopoto should be on a perfect season run.His conditioning is second to none and the Kawasaki is a superior machine.Still dont like the guy either.Hey hell of a 250 moto tho!:clap

    Well I have a computer full of RAW/NEF images I can't do anything but look at. My iMac is an old G5 as is my Adobe CS suite. I need a new computer but no cash. Oh well I did shoot a couple rolls of film. I'll get 'em developed and post some scans.

    Its early times,anything can happen.

    Dungey could get a start and go faster.............. Stewart could stop crashing and having breakdowns.

    Ryan.V is just a racer,he lives to win and leaves it at that.

    Dungey could do Milk commercials after his racing career.

    I wonder if a 250 4 stroke could qualify in a field of more modern 450 2 strokes?

    Man! You watch Moto-GP and its thousandths or tenths of a second differences in qualifying many times.
    Weimer is 5 seconds slower in 10th???????????

    5 seconds and he has a full boat ride still............. Maybe needs to ride his bicycle more and harder.

    I was watching Villopoto at Muddy Creek. The guy has such a smooth and effortless riding style, it looks like he's not even working at it, but everyone else is busting their asses trying to keep up. Barcia stayed with him for a little while, but Villopoto just wore him down. The rest of the field has a lot of work to do to beat this guy.

    I don't see them as similar. Don't forget these guys have to muck through these interviews being conducted by a some pretty lame people asking some pretty lame questions. Week after week. It's probably easier for them to just take the high road.

    Saturday at High Point on TV the girl asks Barcia before moto 2, "what do you have to do to beat RV?"

    Barcia's tongue in cheek answer - "ride faster" Ask a stupid question get a stupid answer.

    Back to Dungey, I saw him "work the room" at the Dallas SX on Thursday night at a lackluster poorly attended Red Bull promo in a sports bar and he went from table to table and really did a nice job engaging each group of people. In my book the guy has impeccable communication skills and I felt that way before seeing him in person.

    You have stated before how you think Aldon Baker is overrated (unnecessary?) but if it is working and the rider believes in the benefits who are you to question it?

    ........ meanwhile, Flug's hero (the one who deemed Aldon Baker as unnecessary) is getting beaten by Alessi on a privateer Suzuki. :wink:

    who was RV's trainer in 2007?

    2007
    Villopoto started the season with a dominating performance in the AMA Supercross Lites West Series, where he won seven of the eight races. He carried his momentum into motocross, winning his second-straight AMA Motocross Lites Championship. To cap off a perfect season, Villopoto became the first rider in history to win the overalls in both motos on KX250F against larger 450cc motorcycles at the Motocross of Nations.

    2008?

    2008
    Earned his third consecutive AMA [motocross] 250cc Championship by winning eight events and finishing on the podium in 11 of 12 starts. Finished second in the AMA Supercross Lites East Series with three wins and five podiums in seven starts. Claimed the MX2 championship at the Motocross of Nations helping Team USA earn the team title for the third consecutive year.

    It was his Dad, I would assume.
    After RV got married he separated from his family.
    Sounds like Baker is a good replacement.

    In multiple interviews, I have heard both RC4 & RV2 credit their fitness level and motivation to train to Aldon Baker.

    Whose opinion am I going to trust, the multi-time champions that paid him for his services year after year, or yours? :hmmmmm

    I don't give a shit who's opinion you trust. These are the two most dominant riders in the last dozen years and both won without him so that makes him insignificant.
