    Can't wait to see what the season brings! Pre-Season last year everyone thought RD had it locked up and it would be a boring season. Turned out to be a exciting. At least I thought so! Again this year there's a lot of conjecture. Will KROC come back with a vengeance? Can ET3 find some consistency? Will Moose-Can conquer the whoops and inherit the KTM crown? Is El Hombre going to step up to the podium?

    Me personally, I'm curious to see what Broc Tickle does now that he's training with Aldon. Will AB flip his switch and turn him into a top three rider?

    And of course there's the constant and ongoing Stewart bros saga. Not to mention us old farts hoping for a miracle, cheering on CR22...

    Oh yes, the 2018 season has a new format. Several races will feature 3 short heats that will give the "off the gate fast, fades in the end" racers a better chance.

    If you want to join group play, the group name is "Rockies O2 Deprived Fans" The password is "WhosNext?"

    Let's have some off season fun. Good luck!

    My picks are in...We'll see how I do, I usually end up forgetting to change them and letting them ride with only like 3 adjustments all season. XD

    JM Wildcard for 7th

    Fantastic for KR, but my guess his arm will get tired/weak and be on cruise control towards the end

    Good luck you guys with your pics

    Holy Crap, Good luck with your picks, looks like anything can and will happen statistically, maybe best season ever for fun, still going with MM

    ET is right on schedule, never seen another rider with pants/mooning or front brakes problems...

    Thought his mechanic should have helped him buckle his pants:dunno new point on his check list

    (Hint: Would be nice to see a Excel spreadsheet including Chase and Christian picks )

    Woohooo! What a night of racing!

    Dayum! ET! Dayum BAM-BAM! Dayum Cooper Webb!

    Sorry for ET’s bizarre bad luck, crash, wardrobe malfunction, bruised shoulder. Excited to see JB51 riding up to his potential and he was humble in the pre race interview and he was aggressive but not dirty! Cooper nearly took out RD in the air.

    Just for the helluva it, I picked Roczen to win. Yes, I believe in Santa Claus, the Easter Bunny, and Cinderella. LOL! KR94 didn’t win, but he was impressive. Looked like a totally different rider. Except for one bobble he was smooth, consistent, determined, steady, and fast. Kinda like Dungey...

    Not sure of the biggest surprise:
    Roczen or Barcia or Tomac's Pants :happay

    Congrats on your 50 points

    Tomac is already 25 points behind Marvin :muutt:devildog

    Thanks! I was hoping to “will” ET into Houston without incident. Sigh, didn’t work. KRoc looked rightfully tense IMO. That might bade badly for the field if he discovers he can “do a Dunge” and kill. MM was way smooth tho... good night of racing. Hope Deano can recover too, that looked painful. IMO the triple crown rounds could be ET’s salvation if he didn’t jack his shoulder and can keep his ears out of the dirt.

    Gonna be a fun season!

    So we finally got to watch the heat races and JA's whip on KR, racing is racing, but I felt like JA could have passed with more respect for KR, he has shown us much to respect being out there and being fast....on the other hand, the lady friend was saying while ET was trying to buckle his pants, she said "Lets see it", Green with Envy, jeah right in a SX race, womin these days :icy, showed her my four stroke. two valve later on

    JA's whip? I thought that was Webb? I thought it was a little too .. something... as well. Agreed that KR has been total class and deserves more respect that that... and don't get me wrong, I love CW's aggressive style...

    ... maybe you should look into getting the valves adjusted on that stroker....

    In. I'm playing as Ridenm.
    I was rooting for the homeboy, Anderson, especially since he's already done well at Anaheim. But he couldn't hold off Marvin. Seems no one can this year.
    Barcia surprised me. He's hungry to revive his career, and Millsaps' ride is probably his last best chance.
    Between Tomac and Wilson DNF'ing, my results definitely sucked - I was hoping for better from Wilson who looked pretty strong at the Australian SX earlier this year.
    Tomac actually got a start! I was not expecting that, and it seems he wasn't either. I don't think he's conquered his mental issues enough yet for SX. You can get a bad start in MX and still win - SX is much harder for bad starters.

    I'm late, but in. My other groups have fizzled, so I gotta bench race with somebody!

    That was a pretty exciting opener - I hope the lap times of the top 4-5 guys each week are as close as A1. Any slip ups on the last lap could have seen a different podium.

    Also, what is the historical precedent for riders blowing their pants off in crashes?
