Listened to the Santa Clara podcast, lots of talk about format and the lack of buck-banging entertainment. I think about championship formats a lot while spending time with my family, and so far this is my favorite “brainvention” LoL. It’s pretty rough-draft, ... more »

I would say if Ken can pull 23-1 over Eli, he could've over anyone.

It's impossible to imagine Tomac not winning any motos this year. He was improving relative to Roczen for like 3 weeks in a row until Red Bud. Remember 2014? Roczen had just about his best performance of the season at Red Bud, then immediately looked ... more »

Legends like Carmichael and McGrath use terms like 'straight-up' regularly. Did you feel like correcting Dungey at Glen Helen when he said he was "handed a gift" by Kenny? A few people will always be upset about it, but let's not kid ourselves about ... more »

Surprise, surprise, MORONcross claims another one. The sooner this circus ends and we get back indoors, the better.

Tomac was 14th last year with 125 points, and that was without Musquin, Canard, Seely, Bogle and Stewart being healthy/present.

That's not a fact. MX, likely; SX, nope.

Didn't mean to imply that he forced RC into retirement, and I didn't imply that a rider's mental game is all centered around James Stewart. Hope you catch your breath soon.

Funny too that a guy like Chad Reed is actually a somewhat intimidating guy off the bike, and James isn't. What James Stewart brought to another rider's mind was doubt. He was the GOAT-slayer, for crying out loud. That's one reason these guys hire guys ... more »

It's a bit Jeremy McGrath invitational, maybe. Anyone remember any race formats from that? Anything interesting, or just some 1 v. 1?

Barcia vs. Roczen looked promising. SX has got the stale format blues, for shore. Multiple races are where it's at; the nature of supercross demands it.* *The start of the race, which we know is so critical in cramped quarters, is, in all its chaos, ... more »

There's more significance in the fact that the guy in the second picture is flat before ever cresting the takeoff than people seem to be acknowledging. He's essentially erased 12 inches off the top of the jump, and by the time he lands, with the extra
Added reply in a thread Stewart did nothing wrong. Wrong place at the wrong time 2/28/2016 6:38 PM
Of course people's blood boils a lot quicker on this issue because it's Stewart. I was throwing my hands up myself--when you see it live it looked really, really bad on James's part, but of course there are multiple shades. A few things... A. It appears ... more »

Stewart's go-pro from his ballsy ride in Toronto in '14, when he was going to the front and working on passing RV, Ryan gets a little wild in the whoops in front of him and Stewart goes, "Careful, buddy!"

It's probably more fun getting a terrible start and working your way up to 7th than holeshotting and fading to 7th. p.s. Go Bubba

More rounds does a bigger series make. Good call.
