    No problem, then; it's all good. I generally don't mind when someone takes issue with the content of what I've posted, but I (obviously) do get a bit tetchy when someone (seemingly) objects *that* I've posted.

    Anyway, back to the worthwhile stuff: I've always been impressed with Bloss; I don't think he'll ever challenge for c'ships--and certainly not holeshots--but to have moved so quickly to 450s (because of his size/weight) and onto a quality team, and then competing in/around the top 10 just highlights his abilities. At his weight, even on a 450, he's got to be paying a penalty on starts, at least.

    Hmm, Would like to see ANY team decline Ken Roczen... He got hurt the pat few years... Cooper in the races he was in had fairly decent results. everyone gets hurt it seems. Tomac was out 1 MX season and his return to MX he couldn't keep up with Kenny. Did Green turn him down? Nope..

    Still pissed they cancelled any stops in Canada.
    Kids looked forward to going every year.

    I understand the need to go race in the off season to make some extra start money, but showing up at A1 100% ready to compete with the worlds best should be more important. I hope Chad is ready. The JGR team works really hard and they deserve to be on the box.

    Weston - or anyone else for that matter (could) have got taken out (landed on) at an "open" practice session while training at any number of SoCal tracks in the "off season" - just as happened with a few other top "pro's" in recent years; Dean Wilson, Jason Andersson... Ciancirulo... (IIRC?).

    The Paris Bercy Supercross is (arguably) the "A1" of the European Supercross season; It pays well and gets great exposure for the riders that do well there... so for Peick - who is still in a lot of ways; a 2nd tier pro in the AMA/SX recordbooks - any event that could help to raise his stock share price in the lead up to the following season - is probably seen as being a good thing. It's just a shame that this "market crash" (bad pun - sorry) happened for the likeable journeyman motocross-star.

    A lot of the AMA's top SX riders have made the trip to Bercy over the years - right back to the mid 80's... and helped to bring the legend of US Supercross to the Euro fans... which in turn brought many of the Euro Stars to the States... going all the way back to JMB...

    A real shame for Weston that this injury occured... I am sure we all wish him a speedy recovery, and see him back sometime in the coming season.

    Not really SX but hey its slow in here being off season.... I am traveling from NY to California to race at Glen Helens Day in the Dirt race this weekend and then will go to Fox(Pala), Cahulia Creek and Milestone. All of the factory teams are practicing now at these tracks so I should be able to see pretty much everyone when out there.

    When you’re down there by Fox (pala) there’s a little taco joint called jilibertos that is pretty fuckin good.

    Edited, it’s a 6 minute drive.
