Basically lost the little town of Pateros a couple days ago in the Carlton Complex fire. Here's a picture from last night at the Chiwaukum fire along US Hwy 2.

No, they are clear, although the promoter and sanctioning body often "work together". But for the lazy, it is easy to confuse Luongo/YS as the sanctioning body......

The rule reads the same for the SX series. People jumped to conclusions because of what "they heard" the rules were, rather than what the rules actually said.

According to the letter of the rule book, you could definitely receive an IV between motos and not be disqualified for the rest of the day as long as the person treating you is also the person clearing you to ride. The rule definitely doesn't say that ... more »

The sanctioning body wouldn't be paying him, the promoter would be. Luongo is the promoter, and securing the guy who is probably the fastest guy in the world at the moment (assuming full recovery from surgery) would be a hell of a promotion. The ROI ... more »

You can insure against just about any loss you could imagine, if you've got the energy to find a company that will invest in the research needed to underwrite the risk. Most likely you aren't going to like the premium, however, since a very unique situation ... more »

And that, folks, underlines why people seem to have so many issues with insurance companies. There are so many people out there that they have to deal with who flat out lie and commit fraud just like this guy is telling you to do, it screws things for ... more »

It's definitely a decent place to live, especially if you consider being the 5th car at the traffic light to be total traffic gridlock! You might not quite recognize Worthen St anymore. Public Works was relocated up to McKittrick St above Wenatchee Ave.

Yep, the picture with the helicopter. The fire was just to the north of Saddlerock itself, but mostly south of Number 2 Canyon. It actually burned on both side of Skyline Dr. If you know that area, you'll understand how fortunate we are not to have lost ... more »

They are definitely using the water on those fires, but water doesn't really put out wildfires like that. It only slows it enough for ground crews to use tactics to alter the burn patterns, backburn, etc. The first picture would be the Wenatchee River

Of course forest fires are natural, but losing towns is not really expected and is nowhere near as common as a rain storm, snow, or the wind blowing. It's not very often that a functioning, irrigated apple orchard burns either. That's the sort of heat ... more »

While I definitely think Tomac has equal speed to anyone currently in the field, it's hard to compare the goals of him and the other front runners right now. I think Roczen's only real goal is to finish ahead of Dungey more often than not, and if Tomac ... more »

Too vague. A picture of an injury might be too much for some folks' work.

Our local guy got left off the Garmin squad again this year so I'll probably pay a lot less attention than I otherwise would have. Today's the third anniversary of his stage win, though!
