    65 days until A1!

    My SO wants to go to Disney in February and I agreed as long as we could fly into Tampa and watch the race first.

    So I have a question, which side of the stadium should I sit? Track maps aren't out (that I can tell) and I want a good view of turn one from a sideline seat, not the endzone.

    Prediction: ET3 2020 SX Champ

    I predict a Green bike will win the 2020 SX 450 title.

    Yes. Need to update title.
    It's really just a national championship with a few international riders.
    They DO happen to be the best supercross riders on the planet.
    MX , yes the Euros are quite good.

    Maybe not Adam, but.....
    Tomac and AC fighting for the lead,who knows? Two fast guys on the same team.
    Of course the KTM guys have been pretty quiet lately. I think they're up to something.

    I'm really excited to see what Adam can do, dont think he will get the title but will be fast and should snag a win or two.

    Arent all the KTM guys pretty banged up from outdoors, might just be trying to heal up.

    Here are the tracks.... Looks like the yr of the sweeper 1st corner is upon us. Guessing this will be safer and help eliminate bottle-necks at the beginning of each race?

    https://racerxonline.com/2019/10/09/450-words-2020-monster-energy-supercross-tracks

    ET3 has shown speed well beyond the champions of the last few yrs in sx and always come up short then displayed MX riding that was almost beyond belief. He is also one of the 2-3 riders that can and does pass riders after not getting a holeshot as most other riders need to do to get a chance at the podium.

    JA21 I think will be back and on the podium plenty this yr. He said in an interview himself that he really cracked at the beginning of the sx season this yr. Can't count out ZO either, or KR or MM. Probably will be the rider with the least injuries\crashes, wins the championship. Last yr, top riders were pretty injury free, not sure of why but 2 yrs in a row like that might be a long shot.

    SX racing is just so start dependent, it really kills off the talent of the top-tier racers like ET because passing is so hard on the ~one-lined tracks so often each week and turns into a row ducks, usually protecting the inside line on ~90% of the corners.

    That's the only race in the series that is sold differently, Daytona controls it. Heard before that it can be late in coming.

    Just pick somewhere near the NASCAR start/finish, and you'll have a great view overall.

    Max Anstie spotted riding a Star Yamaha yesterday at Milestone, after he had been heavily rumored to be riding for HEP and bringing some money with him to contend outdoors with them/JGR. Seems no one knows what's really going on there. Nichols did get hurt, Cooper still banged up from MXdN, possibility sponsors are asking for a 3rd guy for west coast/Anaheim. Nothing concrete, but could be interesting to watch.

    Shit, this year looks to be epic. Webb will obviously be starting with something to lose. ET will be the fan favorite, and probably fuck it up somehow. And then it will be AC's show to run. I had fun rooting for AC in the 250 west last year. After watching him run in the Monster Energy Cup, he just might be unstoppable. I predict he'll make a few rookie mistakes, but in the end he will be in the running for the championship. It's about that time of year to hear predictions. Only 1 1/2 months away from A1!
