    I'll have to look..still going through pics. Taking them is easy, its dealing with all them that gets to be overwhelming. But I've been meaning to post a shot of the finish line jump at MetLife it was quite unique as you can see Dungey (as did most of them) is already setting up for the turn. the jump literally dumped them right into a left turn so there wasn't a lot of whips etc on that jump for the most part. It was really cool to see them position the bike mid air setting up for the turn. as I recall (memory is fading at this point) we were glad just to successfully land a jump these guys are coming in nose first and tilted for the turn like its a walk in the park. I know this is the MX thread but in honor of the Dung we can sneak that one in.

    One thing about Dungey worth mentioning..I don't think I've ever been at a national and not seen his father there, which was cool. He even said hi to me a few times, which was cool, and the guy is probably 10 years younger than me and I'm still thinking I should call him Mr. Dungey. Cool dude though he's a big boy with tattoo's on his forearms. Going to miss seeing him.

    Also..thread hi-jack, was walking through the pits at MetLife about 9 pm (the race was over about 8) and saw Ted Parks, just kind of waved to him, he waved back and said "hey buddy!" I've met him a few times, but he must meet a million people. Very cool guy to do what he does. If I ever win poweball I'm riding with him to all the nationals.

    This question kinda got lost in the mix. Does a regular smart TV work for this. and is there away to record the races?

    Check your smart TV for the NBC App.
    Not sure because I use the Apple TV

    As far as recording there is no need to because you can re watch the event later on the app.

    Funny about Dungey riding at 80%. His 80% was faster than 95% of the other riders out there.

    Ok,
    What I want to know is if Mookie is going to race outdoors. That's what I'm hoping for. Like watching his style.

    Looks to be a warm afternoon on Saturday.

    Looks to me that Tomac, Musquin, Anderson and Webb are going to be the front-runners. Hoping that the three can keep some pressure on Eli...

    Someone mentioned you can watch the races afterwards with the NBC gold app? I am thinking of buying the subscription but want to make sure I can watch them at other times.

    This is true, but theres not a lot of parity in pro motocross. How many different winners did we see in the 450 SX class this season? 5 and thats being generous as Anderson won the last race by default as Eli was purposely slowing the field down. Theres fast guys but very, very few top tier riders.

    musquin and anderson have the best chance i think. Coop, though i like the kid, is a long shot .

    Based on his results in the GPs he rode, and the MXoN, Webb could surprise some people.

    Separate sanctioning bodies...can do what he wants. One has no precedent to the other.
